I was going to ask you how to beat The Guardian, but I found out a super-LULZ way: Just sneak past him until you're on top of the stairs, fire off a pot-shot to lure him onto the lava grate, then trigger any of the buttons. Insta-death.
In the outdoor Immaculate battle by the big door, the wolves are not glitching. They become neutral once you kill their wolfmaster and apparently are programmed to hang around their fallen master out-of-combat. You probably re-aggroed them with some AOE. I wonder if they'd actually fight on your side if the Immaculates aggro them with AOE...never tried it. Also, Jahan was at about 2/3 health when you started the battle which contributed to his near-demise. :)
So the only way to get Tenebrium around level 9 would be to sneak into new areas? And even if you sneak into a new area to buy a Tenebrium bar from a vendor at low level, you wouldn’t be able to use it unless you complete the quest that allows every one to handle Tenebrium weapons and also have the Tenebrium on your craft mule as well. Why don’t you mention this or even dedicate an entire section to specifically getting Tenebrium and torments souls for when you craft weapons at level 9?
I do appreciate all of the hard work you’ve done on this guide. And I’ve spent countless hours reading it and learning. And I’m thankful. But man it’s by far the most confusing experience I’ve ever had with a guide. It seems like this guide isn’t meant for new players I guess?
Yeah, there's a lot of great stuff in this guide, and admittedly I haven't watched ALL of the videos, but I don't know how he gets Tenebrium at level 7? 8? something like that. It's funny how sometimes he's fighting a Level 9 boss at Level 11 with crafted tenebrium damage and says how it's not a really hard boss. ;-)
1. The guide is designed for the hardest difficulties in the game, so no, not for beginners unless you wish to start on Tactician/Honor mode in which case you SHOULD expect pain. I wouldn't think it "wise" to jump into a game you've never played on the hardest difficulties and expect it to be "easy" even with a guide.
2. The huge comment you added in one of the build sections will be deleted, it is way too long and everything you posted is located much more clearly in the Spells/Skills/Items/
Abilities sections as well as written on the bottom of every visual in the order in which it appears on the visual...
3. There is a crafting section of the guide which talks about where to get the items and how to craft. There is an "opening up areas" video which explains everything you are asking, as well as including the information about gaining the ability Tenebrium which can be acquired by a book as well as the quest
4. The guide is designed to make even the hardest difficulties as easy as possible. This obviously means being over leveled and over geared. I explain in great detail in thousands of words and visuals as well as videos how to do all of it in the order in which it will appear in the game (chronologically). You couldn't make it any more organized than it is. Adding even more information would be overkill and as it stands it is already too long for people to read all of it and/or watch the videos before posting how (A) they haven't read/watched everything and (B) are confused. Adding more content would clearly be a waste of time.
Hey, Ssenkrad_II. Thanks for replying. I think what Midma and I failed to convey is just how awesome the guide really is and how much we benefited from it. Midma just happened to touch on the whole tenebrium thing and it's one thing I never quite understood. But I hadn't watched the "opening up areas" video because I didn't want to "spoil" the natural discovery of those areas and didn't want to invest in Charisma on my Pet Pal character (I discovered your guide after I'd already played a bit and didn't want to change certain decisions I'd made). Sure enough, it's demonstrated later in that video...mystery solved. I agree that the guide doesn't need any more content, it just happens that this little detail (tenebrium acquisition) is only described in one place (to my knowledge) and maybe not in a place one would expect. AT MOST maybe the YouTube video description (blurb) could point out things that are covered in the video beyond what's obvious from the video title. Cheers, and thanks again for all of your hard work.
