Unlocking Bazaar Level 3 and Other Questions

Postby francoisvn on Mon Nov 18, 2013 1:23 pm

Hi,

Played DD Alpha a long time ago and so far I am trilled with the full version. Started on the Friday after release and have since put in about 70 hours or so (lost count). I really enjoyed trying to figure out thing myself, but the wiki was invaluable when I decided to up my game. I've unlocked quite a bit, and unlocking more definitely provides a nice goal. I believe I just have the 3 monster classes, bank lvl 4, witch hut lvl 3+ and bazaar lvl 3 left to unlock (ignoring other dungeons).

According to the wiki, to unlock Bazaar lvl 3, I need to beat Hexx Ruins and then I will get a quest. However, when I just beat it no quest appeared. Is the wiki correct (i.e. is this a bug?), or how can I unlock Bazaar lvl 3? I currently have 16 pending quests, so there could be something there, but I can't recall from when they were introduced and none of them mention the Bazaar or other dimensions or shops. Any help here would be appreciated.

Another question: I find that a run will often take me 30 min or more. However, I do find that I win quite a large percentage of my runs (I would guess around 70%). Does this sound typical for a relatively new player, or am I taking too long?

One last thing: is the term "salting your popcorn" a thing? I was just thinking the slow debuff from WONAFYT kinda has that visual effect, and it sounds cool.

I have a question as well. Does the Alchemist have an upgrade to level 3? If so how do you go about unlocking it?

Alch doesn't have lvl 3 upgrade. I think? If you have the gree, blue and pink seals you have all of them.

Salting popcon :) Makes sense!

As for the question, I think the bank and bazzar quests alternate one with the other so you have to complete one to get the other. I'm not entirely sure, though. The final bank quest is, I think, clearing out Shifting Passages, so once you complete that I think you should get the Hex ruins buyout quest or something along those lines.

And no, you're not taking too long, depends on the run.

Thanks Lujo. I checked and I only have the "Confusion!" quest on Shifting Passages and my bank is lvl 3, so I will try finish that next and see if it works.

If it does work I will be sure to update the wiki :)

It's not "Confusion!". Something about teleporters. You already did that though, because you have the bank at lvl 3. There should be a Hexx quest where you have to buy everything.

I think that you need Ick Swamp unlocked before the last Bezar quest triggers, even though said quest is set in Hexx Ruins. Ick Swamp is unlocked by a special subdungeon encounter that can randomly spawn in any dungeon after Hexx has been beaten. You'll know it when you see it.

Thank you, the subdungeon encounter that unlocked Ick Swamps was the trigger for the Bazaar quest. I have updated the wiki to reflect this.

Beat the final boss over the weekend. Although it was fun, it feels more like a welcome to the 'actual' game now. Not that I'm complaining: I finally feel like I'm a somewhat competent player now. Now just to finish the final 90% of DD :D

I have got the Bank to level 3 and unlocked Ick Swamp but do not have the Bazaar level 3 quest yet.
I completed Hexx Ruins and then got the sub-dungeon that unlocked Ick Swamp before completing the Bank Level 3 quest (ATM)

Edit : Defeated Hexx Ruins again and then got Bazaar quest (this was my next successful run, so maybe it could have been any completion)

Try playing another adventure, it's been a while, but I seem to remember the quest triggering after one more adventure.
