    I didn't really have that problem. But i also didn't carry around a lot of extra stuff.

    I ditched the rocks for bolts/throwing daggers(or torches on that level), prioritized eating the heavier foods (or leaving them) and made sure that I didn't have anything on me I wasn't going to use. Wasn't too bad in that case.

    This game is good for making me stop being a packrat. I keep having to stop myself and saying 'there's no shop! you can drop these 5 pairs of trousers'.

    If you don't use an archer (or if you have an archer who prioritizes, say, bows over crossbows) then aside from 3-4 rocks for some specific puzzles, you're better off using arrows or quarrels to hold down pressure plates.

    Also, I just hit level 11. Is there really nothing else to his level except the staircase to 12 and the extra rooms accessible from other floors? My bullshit detector's going insane, but I can't really find anything.

    It's possible to come up into 11 from 12.


    I did just beat the game, missed 2 secrets though... found all the treasures and Toorum's notes though, so that was good. Final time was something like 18 hours I think. I took my time... and backtracked a lot to get things I missed.

    Beat the game, though I completely missed how to open the locked key doors on level 12. What was up with those?

    SO there isn't a shop? Thank god. I can drop all this crap.

    I almost thought that the dream sequences implied a shopkeeper below.

    Poison is a really annoying status effect, as usual.

    Will it wear off on its own, or do I need to down potions?

    It wears off on its own. Early on poison is a serious threat, but it doesn't seem to scale that well (at least on Easy). Later on it doesn't pose much of a threat.

    I want to give you a hint, but I don't want it to be too blatant, so I'll spoil it. This is in reference to the no shop thing btw.

    Well, if you have an insect character, that doesn't exactly hold true. But yeah, trying to gain the powers of a spider for your humans doesn't work out so well ... unless that is how the insect race came about - wait, that would mean...

    See? Lore proves that the dungeons get quite lonely.

    I FOUND IT, I FOUND IT! I finally found the last secret and am now part of the 0.0% of people who have every secret in the game.

    Took me nearly 5 hours to find the last secret.

    A shame I'm missing 2... which means I'm missing some random secret somewhere in all the levels. But what are the hints on the final one, Khildith? What level is it on, where abouts is it?

    Edit: Actually nevermind, I just saw your post on the Grimrock forums. I'm probably missing that one too, have to go up and grab it. But that still leaves one more... so, is there anything to the gamebanshee hint that you need one of the blue eye gems from level one way near the end of the game then?

    Well, my final one might be different than your final one. I missed one back on floor 4
    Spoiler:

    I found it by giving up and going to a walkthrough guide and comparing maps until I found a spot that didn't match up with mine. This is after wandering from floor 13 to 1 and down again, searching pretty much every wall in the game.

  • DranythDranyth Surf ColoradoRegistered User regular
    Yeah, I just ran back up and got that one (and the one on level 3, the demand a sacrifice). I'm now sitting at 70/71 and I don't think either of the final treasures in the game were secrets... so I'm still missing one.

    If you are really serious about finding the secret I can help. http://www.gamebanshee.com/legendofgrimrock/walkthrough/level1.php is the guide I used, basically any part of the walkthrough that uses the word "Secret" actually gets you a secret thing. You could read through floor by floor hoping to see something you don't recognize.

    Throw rocks! Also shurikens and knives. There's a sling on level 2.

    So, uh, I'm getting owned on level 2. I'm bad at video games I guess.

    It would help though if I didn't have one character that basically feels useless in combat :/ On the backline and not being able to find a bow or anything pretty much sucks.

    The sling is real easy to miss.

    Check the floors! Actually mouse-look down when you check for the secret buttons.

    The spears the undead knights have can be used from the backrow by anyone. It's a good thing to have until you find a ranged weapon (or get to level 12 in assassination).

    That's sort of what I started doing, anyway I found the one I was missing, it was the first occurrence of the Scroll of Invisibility that you get to from the 3rd floor. I had actually seen someone get the secret and meant to go back and grab it but forgot. Anyway, 71/71.

    Man, the Dungeon Runner achievement is tougher than it looks... mostly because the timer starts as soon as you start to make your party. Ended up finally getting it with about 8-9 seconds to spare.

    So now I'm just missing Skill Mastery, Doin' it Old School and Hard Boiled.

    That would be rad and is possibly worth trying...though I'd guess Gamebanshee would've said so if it were possible.

    The sling is really hard to spot. It looks like something that could be a part of the ground when you walk over it. I found it the first time i went through, and missed it the second time even so much as inspecting (but clearly not clicking on) the area and not seeing it.

    It may not even be able to be picked up without mouselook

    Haha yeah, I have every secret in the game and I still haven't found the sling on either playthrough. Not easy to spot.
