Sometimes, I feel like an idiot playing this game.

Postby Dagwan on Thu Aug 04, 2011 9:28 pm

Most of the time, I can figure out puzzles just fine, thank you.

But... I can't seem to figure out how to complete the "Positioning" puzzle int the starter pack. I run out of mana and health before I can kill the final LVL 1 Goblin. I've got some kind of a mental block on this one.

What's the trick here?

hint: you don't need to kill the zombie on the bottom-right.

Convert that WEITWUT glyph just after having used it on the zombie, for extra mana to kill that goat and extra damage, because you are a human.

Also check carefully how many times you would need hit each different monster with spell or normal strike. Try to find the sequence which will make best use of mana and health

The only trick is that you don't kill a LVL 1 Goblin last; the last one you should kill is the LVL 2. But keep in mind that you don't have to kill all the enemies, just the LVL 2.

Sometimes, I feel like an idiot after posting on a message board, too.

I figured out how to beat it, like 5 minutes after posting the above. If it weren't for the long lag-time between posting it and its appearance on the board, I would have edited it.

All the questions about this puzzle made me curious, so I went back and found out that it is possible to kill everything on the level as well ;)

Well don't feel too dumb. I couldn't figure it out at all. Messed around with it for about 10 minutes or more... blimey level. Had to come here to learn I didn't have to kill the last zombie...

For the life of me, I can't figure out this puzzle. None of the previous hints have helped me. Would someone be kind enough to throw me a bone?
