Warhammer Quest Cheats And Tips
If Warhammer Quest's got you stumped, we've got the answers.
Struggling to get to grips with Rodeo Games' Warhammer Quest? We've put together some essential hints and tips that should help even the greenest adventurer set out on the right path.
- If you've tried and failed to beat a dungeon in the game, you'll probably already know that you should use your heavily-armored melee characters to protect your softer magic-throwing friends. Muscle at the front, magical brains at the back, and do whatever it takes to prevent enemies from getting too close to your squishier characters.
- Don't forget to take out the trash. When you reach the ultimate objective room of a dungeon, you're likely to find the main enemy, and a small cluster of assistants. Don't be tempted to just whack away at the bigger boss, as those smaller units will whittle the team down faster than you think. Make sure you're thinning down the smaller threat at the same time as the boss.
- Here's how the Pinning system works in the game. If a monster is adjacent to one of your characters at the start of the turn, there's a chance they'll be Pinned. If that happens, they won't be able to move from their current position, but they can still take swings at the enemy involved.
- For a melee party member to make a successful attack, they need to be in a square that's adjacent to an enemy. Ranged fighters cannot be adjacent to a creature if they want to make an attack, so move them back a little if they need to find their necessary range.
- If you're wondering why one of your melee fighters has taken a second swing at another enemy, they've gained the Deathblow ability. Put simply, this special power grants the wielder a devastating initial attack that kills the enemy at hand, then lets the fighter have a second attack at a nearby enemy. Don't build these into your strategy though - they're just a result of good fortune.
- Keep an eye on your party's health bars, but don't waste any bandages or healing spells you have unnecessarily. Wait until they really need assistance before making use of these precious resources, but at the same don't forget they're there if you really need them.
- The Hardcore mode adds an additional degree of danger to proceedings, but you need to be aware that any characters that die in battle are gone for good. In other difficulty modes, any characters that are wiped out will appear again outside the dungeon, but will lose any experience they'd gained in the process.
- Any time you find yourself in a Settlement, be sure to check the market thoroughly for any upgrades that could make your next adventure a good deal easier. You can buy potions, scrolls, weapons and armor in these town areas - don't forget to sell any trash items you've collected if you need a little more cash for your next major upgrade.
