Not sure if it's an RPG or not, it looks like one xD Looks good though!

These are the ones I can remember off the top of my head (pre-Final Battle)...

On an aside...I'm trying to kill the offline UR-Dragon before i begin my second playthrough, my main vocation is fighter. Got the blighter down to half a bar, but just cannot get the two hearts on the wings..any tips for hittting these? I changed vocation to strider, even with a bow they seem tricky to hit!


 

Ranged is pretty much the only way to go for those...

 

You could switch to sorceror or magic archer and make use of the target locking capabilities if you're struggling with strider. Or you can wait until he casts his own magic, at which point he sits relatively still while he does it. I'd also recommend the skill that fires 3 or 5 arrows at once...

 

If/when the next time you fight him, go for these ones when he is staggered from destroying one of the others ;)

Took the UR-Dragon down after changing to a weak strider and grinding down those wingtips. Thanks for the tips =)

Finally got around to trying the UR-Dragon (offline), the Ranger's Tenfold arrow boosted with Conquerer's Periapt worked quickly on the wingtips for me when the dragon would pause to charge an attack. An otherwise longwinded battle for the level my characters were at but worth it to see him bite the dust.

Well I enjoyed skyrim if that counts for anything mainly because it was fun and you have an open world to interact with people and explore collecting new stuff but also because it wasn't too hard i.e. changing difficulty - only as I'm new to the RPG (I used to be mainly shooters -_-) and I'm slowly making my way into RPG

I got the game two weeks ago and have only just started the wyrm hunt. I spend far too much time running around gathering items XD

 

I'm a magic archer at lvl 34. Is this a good level for this part of the game?

Yes. It's a good level if you are finding the difficulty ok. If not, grind a bit then come back to whatever you were doing ;)

When hunting Direwolves I managed to kill a Chimera without too much fuss, so I guess I'm a good level. I'm a little worried about some of the escort quests though. My last two charges seemed to be suicidal.

Yeah, do a manual save (start, then select I think) at the start of an escort quest. Even if you're sensible in battle, they can run off cliffs and stuff...

I derped something awful in my first escort quest. The woman I was taking care off ran into a bunch of bandits and got herself killed. I went to reload but accidentally saved instead T-T

 

I can do it again in new game plus right?

 

What is it with Chimeras and night time? I keep running into them whenever I go out at night. I don't mind too much because of the drops and exp, but I'd like to see one in the day.

Yeah, you can do it again in NG+, and it will be easier as enemies don't get any harder :)

 

Just bad luck I guess re: Chimeras - they are there during the day too...

Does anyone know a good place to harvest Quills? I quite like Ser Maximilian and would like to romance him, but I have only found four so far. I have the augment to increase infinity points for gifts, so how many would it take to get that pink glow?

Im in post-game and have just discovered that the Black Cat not only forges the special items but also duplicates materials as well. Havent tried with a quill but its working fine with Hydra Poison Fangs and the like so I suggest you take one along and see if he'll be able to duplicate one for you. 

If it works just keep doing it, you should be able to get one per day. Cant help you on how many you would need, (sorry), but given that its a fairly low level item I cant see it being too expensive either.

Thank you. I'll have to try that.

 

I managed to find one on a desk in the duke's castle, although I'm not sure if it will respawn or not. I'll check back once I've found and killed my third Golem.

Indeed! Excellent news...

 

I look forward to Dark Arisen, speed runs and hard mode. This game is at it's best when it is hard, which unfortunately is only for about your first hour or two.

So is Dark Arisen like a downloadable sequel or what?

I honestly don't know. Some sites say it's DLC, others say a sequel.
