Quest help! "Honors to The Victor"
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...
