Puzzle weapon

Post by Hibernator » July 14th, 2018, 6:30 pm

I’ve got the puzzle axe and finally figured out you can click on parts of it after the inspecting it in the inventory. The black, yellow and green elven things curse the weapon when I try to insert them into the top, but the white one causes a crash to desktop. Anybody else get this?

I got the Elven Sword. I added the purple seed and got a CTD. Maybe I'll try it in windowed mode or something.

DISPELLING DISCIPLINE - white gem: (1)Attacks remove 1 spell point from enemy and (2) Hilt = restore 1 spell point to attacker

ACIDIC ELVEN LONG SWORD - purple gem (1) Reduce enemy armor by 2.


...and a dagger from a previous game, but it crashed when i put in the white gem.

You pull the dagger out of the face of the guy being sacrificed by the cultists in the square.

Yes I got an Axe called Discipline --> always crashes and bringing up a Fatal Error Window when I try to put in the White Elven Stone .

I got a dagger (rogues and practitioners only, +1 sp, +1 int, +4 str) called Discipline, which crashes for me as well. It's bizarre that some people got an axe while some got a dagger. It's also bizarre that some people get a fatal error while others do not.

The Acidic Elven sword, on the other hand, worked just fine.

For those that got the dagger instead of the axe, is it maybe tied to the class of your PC? I could see it where they made it so the weapon that you get is something the main character can use.

I got the warrior/bard axe/mace thingie and my main character is a caster.

For me I get the CTD when trying to put the thistle seed into the sword, but was able to solve both puzzles on the axe just finr.

I think it's just random since I had a Bard as my main PC and I got the dagger. I gave it to the Green Lady to use.

i've just picked up a elven bow, doing the second part of Kylerans Tower, after the silver triangle. The Stone at the end was easy, but the rest of the puzzle is a bit of a b*tch

I still crash every time I place a correct stone. I'm going to set windowed with lowest settings and see if it helps. I have the bow and the sword. both crash the game.

Nope. Still fatal error regardless, on both weapons.

Which version of Discipline, and is it any gems or only the white gem?

Dagger. Only the white gem. Curse mechanic works fine.

I even tried splitting the gem stack beforehand but it doesn't distinguish between piles. Then I tried selling all but one of my white gems. That had no effect either.

I got the puzzle long sword from pulling out of the guy's head. I put the violet gem in and it unlocked to an acidic blade. I then saved my game and played some more before stopping for lunch. When I re-launched the game and loaded my last save, the blade was back to an unsolved version, and any time I try to insert a violet gem now, the game immediately crashes to desktop.
