View Full Version : Quest help! "Honors to The Victor"
12-26-2012, 07:32 PM
if anyone has already played through this please lend me a hand because I've tried too many times and lost too many troops to this quest. I'm not sure if it's the quest's problem or just me but Tirranek ( the guy i'm suppose to escort ) keeps trying to "help" me defeat the orcs but instead of helping he keeps dying to the orcs' AOE damage. If it's possible for the devs please make it so that Tirranek doesn't fight?

... I lost the main guy several times as well.
The mission description says Ogers lie in Ambush ... but you simply get invisible enemies.
(Small squads which you cannot see or target while they live. When dead, look humanoid. Strong in melee, weak against arrows, apparently.)
I brought three or four squads of Goblin archers and three Marauders squads (plus some melee).
At the beginning of the mission, the quest guy runs off towards town, into the first ambush. Send your guys right after him.
You won't be able to click on the enemies, so to keep the quest guy covered keep moving your archers and telling them to Stop (Hand icon) near him. When they fire at the ground and corpses start appearing, you've found an enemy.
Once the first ambush is done, you get a short pause (several minutes). I kept my melee and Marauder units next to the quest guy, and used the 4 Goblin archer squads to clear out some more invisible enemies. Be wary of ambushes, the invisible guys seem to move around the map.
Enemies, from what I can tell, move around the map while cloaked and try to reach the quest guy. After a while, possibly after you've hunted down all the stealthed mobs, he moves to the next location. Keeep the quest guy covered until he reaches town (or possibly until you've found all the enemies).

@Nobodave - the enemies shouldn't be invisible in this quest, they should just be normal Ogres. If they are invisible for you then that is through some sort of glitch. Re-validating your game files might help with this issue. We've had a few reports of invisible Ogres for a few players and are looking into this.
@pisir - Orcs like to fight, so there is no stopping the Tirranek from joining in. Take as many units as you can. I recommend using several battalions of Impalers supported by Marauders and some goblins (for healing). Send your Impalers ahead to intercept the Ogres while the Marauders fill them with arrows. Use your Hero as well to take out the Ogres and heal units after each ambush.

mission is frustrating beyond reason. This isn't an escort mission, it's a mission to try and prevent a character from killing himself. Good to know he likes to fight but you programmed him with a death wish. :\
Try number 11...

This is ridiculous.... been doing this for hours with no success. army make up is 1x Hero 9x Impalers 6x Murauders and 4x elven enchanters for healing (which the escort wont seem to take). This is a cubic pain the @#!

Alright, alright, sorry I didn't reply my solution...I suppose that's a tad selfish, but I figured out the method to this madness of a mission.
PIKEMEN. I brought as many Pikemen units as I could and some archers for good will. Pikemen and archers the best against Ogres, but you need to move quick.
The mission is as such:
Start > Ambush > walk > Ambush > walk > Ambush > end mission.
So you just need to be ready three times. Once you're done killing the Ogres immediately head to the next ambush spot and get working. Be faster than the NPC but don't tread too far ahead as you want to make sure he has the majority of backup when/if the fights. He generally goes straight or to the right.

Going to try this been at the missiion for two days now. And yes Dev's brought Goblins for healing. As the supposed "King" he's damn weak. my hero is WAY tougher than he is. Tirranek should be diving into the fight but he should not be so weak, low of health and no combat healing. He's weaker than my maurauder battalions. . . How is he still in command?
