  • Places you think there should be something . . . but there isn't.

    So, in your travels along the Sword Coast have you ever happened on a spot where you think to yourself, "I'm sure there should be something here?"

    It happened to me on the wilderness map just north of Nashkel (AR4300)

    I'm convinced there should be a cave between where me and Imoen are standing. I can see the opening. It is so frustrating that I can't get in because I feel sure that there are thrilling adventures and wonderful treasures to be found in there.

    I will. But I've been playing for almost twenty years: I think the chances of me getting any better at it are a bit remote.
    Been playing since day 1 and I'm still horrendous. I have fun though...I have some fun...

    @Enilwyn
    It's good to know I'm not the only one. Mind you I actually seem to be getting worse. Last night I set a new personal best by hitting members of my own party with Lightning Bolts on three separate occasions.

    The first time I was fighting a pack of Vampiric Wolves and Dread Wolves. Kagain, my tank, was taking a battering. I cunningly moved Garrick to outflank the wolves hoping to take three of them out in one shot. Somehow I missed the wolves, hit Kagain and it bounced back and hit Garrick. The whole party then had to run off the map pursued by a wolf pack.

    The second time was even worse. I was fighting a mage and a couple of his henchmen but this time the melee hadn't started and Garrick seemed to be in a good position so I thought I'd try get off a Lightning Bolt before he could mirror image. I was sure I had set up the rest of my party to use ranged weapons but somehow I had clicked the melee weapon icon on my Charname. He walked right into the Lightning Bolt which then bounced back and hit Garrick.

    The third time may have been a bug. I hope it was because otherwise I am setting whole new levels of ineptitude. I thought my party was tough enough to go fighting Ankhegs (ho-ho). So we crept up Ankheg Road waiting for one to appear. When it did Garrick fired his Lightning Bolt again but as he did so the Ankheg disappeared underground. Despite there being nothing there anymore the Lightning Bolt rebounded off thin air and hit Garrick.

    Fortunately, the Wand of Lightning has only got a couple of charges left. It's the most dangerous enemy I've had to face so far.

    @Permidion_Stark the stones remind of the weird rock
    formations in game of thrones, maybe there is something hidden behind these patterns ;) .

    On topic this cave from Rassad's quest in cloud peak annoys the hell out of me, I want to know what is inside.

    I've never done that quest. And maybe I'd better not. I think not being able to go in there would drive me insane.

    How is cruel NOT evil?
    Sometimes you've got to be cruel to be kind . . .
