Shade Lord help (SCS/Hard)


Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

 

Just curious about this encounter, as it's probably the toughest one I've faced yet. Maybe I'm not understanding exactly, but all my spells seem to just either reflect off of him, or have no effect whatsoever (not even a saving throw is rolled, apparently.) I guess the second part of that is because he has some sort of spell absorption? I'm wondering about his other protections, though. The swirling blades I believe cause damage to anyone directly attacking him in melee, so I avoid that. Not sure how to dispel a reflection/absorption spell, though. I tried Breach, just seemed to have zero effect. Tried Remove Magic, nothing. Maybe the saving throws were successful but I usually see at least the dialogue in the combat log saying that. In this case it just hit him and had no effect whatsoever.

 

I should mention I'm using SCS on Hard with all the SCS bells and whistles turned on (which, I might soon go back to Core Rules, dunno. The normal/above normal fights are fine, but the boss battles often have a huge difficulty spike, likely to the Improved 'X' Encounters of SCS.) I also destroy the altar and in the last try against him he was basically the only enemy left, but I had nothing left at that point to dispel him with. So would I just need to try a few more Remove Magic spells, and/or a few Breach spells? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I think the problem is I have literally none of those as I can't cast level 6 spells. I have one copy of Pierce Magic, a scroll, and that's it.

 

But, after literally an hour of trial and error, I think I've figured it out. Didn't realize you can run down in the grassy area below the altar. So I quickly destroy the altar ASAP, retreat to the grass and try to survive until his protections run out. Then, quickly throw everything at him while I have a chance between his casting of protections. I had him Near Death a minute ago, and literally drank a healing potion instead of an invisibility potion with my main character and ended up taking a shot that killed me. So next time should be good to go.

 

Rough one, though. Hard + SCS might just be a little too much, but I'm not entirely sure because the normal combats are mostly easy enough (it's just those damn boss battles that give me trouble. Usually powerful mages.)

I play EET with similar settings and yes, that dragon is a hard nut. You can pass him by with the shadow wardstone and solve the Umar quest, then come back to him when you feel ready. I surrounded him with a lot of summons to keep him (or is it Her rather?) busy, only problem is that the dragon gets hostile as soon as the first summoned creature appears. Moving out of that area to the altar or upstairs helps you survive (do not rest however).

Anyway, with those settings you may want to delay that battle to a later part of SoA, if you do Umar very early, you easily face a foe too large for your skills.

Minsc and Boo would explain you this : Hit harder !

:wub2: SCS :wub2:

It may be a matter of taste but I feel that SCS works extremely well in EET this way. It compensates for the slightly more xp you may have, especially when you have many mods installed. Still, it is not yet a pure tactical game - but the bosses are still a big challenge and the overall mob not too weak.

And consider that most players for this setup are not BG beginners. Every now and then you want to have a battle that takes more than 2 minutes to win.

PS- I stumbled into the Rune cellar in Bridge District yesterday, oh boy!

Yeah, I'm enjoying the EET a lot, even if some of the battles are very tough. I had trouble with Sarevok, his 2 assassins a bit earlier and a few others, and BG2 has some nasty boss battles so far. Finding the hidden door in the inn in the Athkatla City Gates area was fun! :saiyan:

 

When the 6 shapechanging mages jump you when you leave Athkatla, is that a winnable battle? I ended up having to just say forget it and tell them I wasn't the person they were looking for. Just hoping the game is doable in the long run. If I couldn't use the "wait it out" strategy with the Shade Lord I'd be in a tough spot there. I guess a Mass Invisibility could help, too, to wait it out. Lots of ways to approach it, which is awesome, and one of the reasons I'm loving BG so much in general.

I am not sure I remember them or maybe I have not met them yet.

 

I have been a number of times now through all of EET and I have Ascension for ToB as well. I am not a tactical game fan, I do not need it harder and harder, so you know what I mean when I say that you can win it. I always do, since otherwise I could not access my own Sandrah RtF sequel...

So I'm having a rough go of BG2 w/ EET right now. It seems every quest I do, I basically run into enemies that are much too strong, almost entirely the mages or mage-like creatures (rakshasas, which I understand are high level and powerful, vampires, too.) The humanoid mages are the worst. I can only cast level 5 mage spells at max and have no way at all of even damaging most of these mages. They cast all these protections and all I really have is Breach and Spell Thrust, neither of which seem to ever work (and barely ever even make the mage roll a Saving Throw.) My only option is to run away, wait for their protections to run out and charge back in. I feel that's very cheap and a cheat, basically, but I see no other way of handling these enemies.

 

Am I doing something wrong? Are the Planar Sphere quest and the Firkraag quest meant to be done at much higher levels and I tried them too early? It's a bit confusing really.

This sounds like something else is involved here, not just SCS. I cannot remember rakshasas appearing before Suldanessalar except in mod added areas. The one in Druid Grove is some lesser version, I guess. (But this is just memory and I may be wrong...)

Not sure, it's my first time modding the game and I used BWS "Recommended" but also enabled all of the SCS extra options.

 

So far it seems every battle is too hard. I was jumped by 3 rakshasas in Athkatla who wanted the Flail of Ages +3 and I had to run (just barely escaping, it was a random encounter.) Then got ambushed by 6 mages in the wilderness that was entirely a joke as it was completely unwinnable. The troll leader in De'Arnise Keep was a very hard battle but I somehow won (with slight cheating, let the protections run out for the Yuan-Ti Mages, etc..) Fought another random encounter with slavers and the slaver mage was wrecking us. The vampires in Firkraag's lair are impossible for my level 9/10 party, and the rakshasa guarding that area (Ruhk Transmuter) is impossible as well (unless I cheat, which I don't want to have to do that.)

 

So I left those areas and went to the Planar Sphere, same deal. The halfling mage there was impossible without cheating, and then of course Lavok is the same way. The 3 rakshasas in Druid Grove are not lesser in my game, they are also impossible (hilariously so. She buffs with every spell known to man and insta-kills us, much like every other mage, really.)

 

I don't mind a challenge (I want one, a strong one), but these encounters are literally impossible as I have nothing to affect these mages spell-wise. Wand of Heavens, any kind of spell, nothing works. My strongest spell is Breach and it never works and the mages don't even roll Saving Throws when I cast it. I try Remove Magic/Dispel and it never works, which is to be expected based on the small % chance it has. It just gets frustrating because it's impossible to progress without cheating.

 

The weird thing is the rest of the game is nice and balanced. The Juggernaut Golem in Firkraag's lair was tough, but it was doable with proper strategy. But the next room has a bunch of Elder/Ancient Vampires and even with Negative Plane Protection cast I get wrekt so bad it isn't even funny. Come to think of it I *could* sneak past them perhaps, but I'm wondering if I'll just end up running into some other high level mage who will make me have to retreat and leave the area anyway.

 

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here. Here's my weidu.log if you'd like to take a peek at it. I'd appreciate any help because I'm loving the EET so far (played through BG -> SoD -> early areas of BG2 so far) but it's getting really frustrating.

Maybe there's bugs or something? Every time I cast Breach I get no Saving Throw message of any kind. It just doesn't do anything. Usually the same thing happens with Remove Magic/Dispel, too. It's as if I didn't even cast them at the mage. ONE time I got a message about it being absorbed by Spell Turning or whatever that one is called (the one that absorbs spells), but that only happened one time. And I'm using some +3 weapons and still can't hit these mages. Also, they do take damage, weirdly enough, from the magical effects on the weapons (Flail of Ages +3 will occasionally do 1 point of fire, acid + frost damage to a mage, but rarely.)
I also tried "weird" tactics like going invisible and shooting a mage with a paralytic bolt from the shadows. Doesn't work. Also tried buffing strength incredibly and backstabbing, never works. So I dunno what else to do, haha.

There is a rakshasa in Firkraag's dungeon, in the cave. With the suiciding kobolds :p He's quite annoying even in the vanilla game.

 

Yes fluent, SCS is meant to be hard. The planar sphere isn't meant to be done that early in SCS I think, as Lavok is much, much stronger here than in the vanilla game.

 

Breach is supposed to work on mages, maybe they have spell shield up? Remember that it doesn't dispel everything. You should be able to Breach then attack though.

 

Don't forget though that unless you installed the optional SCS component, Breach doesn't work on liches and rakshasa since they are immune to 5th level spells.

 

I recommend spamming dispel magic too. It won't work much on high-level wizards, but mid-level ones it should do some work.

Thanks for taking the time to help, I appreciate it. Here's my thing. I'm fine with it being hard, I'm fine with rakshasas being super powerful (I like that actually, it fits the lore), but it seems every turn I face impossible challenges. Not just hard, impossible.

 

The Planar Sphere, okay, I realize it should be tough. But the Cowled Wizards put me on a time limit to find Valygar. So my RPG Intuition told me I should complete that ASAP, find him and then help him with the sphere. Otherwise, why would Tolgerias tell me to hurry or there would be bad consequences for me?

 

If Breach worked I'd be fine. Not sure about Spell Shield, I get confused by the different protections and it doesn't matter much which ones they are because I throw the same Breach/Remove Magic/Dispel/Spell Thrust at them anyway, to no avail.

 

I'm fairly sure I turned on all the hardest options in SCS, so I probably have the lich/rakshasa immunity on. Which is fine, because they are supposed to be dominantly hard enemies. But the spell doesn't work on any other mage much, either. Human, halfling, whatever.

 

Spamming Dispel seems like something to try. So memorize a bunch of Dispel/Remove Magic spells and just fire em off ASAP? I guess it's my only hope.

Sorry I didn't see your post, I think we posted at the same time?

 

I'll try to delve deeper.

 

First of all, I think you should install Spell Revisions (and optional: Item Revisions). It will give you more options, and the new spells are nice. I think the fights will be more balanced that way. It would require a re-install though so yeah... think about it :p

 

Second, have you tried using summons? Enemy spellcasters in SCS will still target you, but with summons they will have to deal with them too so they will waste spells on them. I find that summons work quite well overall.

 

Third, yes Spell Shield basically protects you from Breach, so it's very important to look for this spell. If it's on, use Secret Word or Spell Thrust, don't remember which. Spell Revisions changes some of those spells so I might be confused as to which does what.

 

Fourth, spellcasters in SCS will prioritize dispelling your buffs, so try to have some up and they will waste time dispelling them. During that time, you might be able how to figure out how to dispel theirs, and then attack them. The flail of ages does multiple elements damage, try it as much as you can as it may disrupt their casting if even a single damage from ice/cold/lightning goes through

 

Fifth, try using scrolls. Protection from Undead, Protection from Magic... They're meant to be used!

Just to clarify, since you always mention EET - EET only is the platform to make all the parts into one game. It does not change challenge level by itself.
