Valen Doomed?
« on: August 20, 2005, 06:02:54 AM »
When I played with Valen, I discovered alot of lowlevel priests (I have seen this mentioned) who used sunray and false dawn as soon as they see her. The problem, as I see it, is that the priest that attacks you in Garrens Cabin can hit Valen with a sunray even if she leaves the house.

No problem, of course, I reloaded, and killed her quickly, but her targeting gives me a bad taste, cause I wonder if Amelyssan will do the same? If she can target Valen, then Valen is doomed, cause there is no way you can kill Amelyssan before she pulls off a sunray.

Also, is it possible to keep Valen hidden from most of the neutral clerics in TOB?

I assume that invisibility won't help?

Don't know, I don't have much experience with people using priest scrolls. I'll have to try on that one.

That'd be logical cause they wouldn't see her. But Weimer seems to like powergaming and provides a lot of "challenges" so they may see through the invisibility...

Yep, and I must say, I like those challenging mods, but the Kensai and the Dragons in Small Teeth Pass caught me offguard. That Red Dragon got some range, it seems. Ups, off topic.

Valens personality makes her mod all the more interesting, specially in different dialogues.
It will be tough to remain neutral with her along. Great challenge.

This may not be quite the place, but my Valen (v41) is usually "doomed" because of her daylight debilitation. Every time the sun goes up, her STR drops enormously, but her DEX drops even further and makes her immobile. That's rather annoying, because unless she's close to a door so party can get inside (and hopefully rest until nightfall), it leaves the whole party just standing around until nightfall. Valen's immobility has forced me to use the teleport cheat more times than I care to remember, though it has saved her from a few daylight fights.
