Specific InformationEdit

The following information is specific to this challenge, and differs from the "common" information accordingly:

  • Foes' Difficulty Progression:
    • Stamina Points start at 39 and increase by +4 at each new level (i.e. SP = 35 + level*4).
    • To hit is 9+ at MR 36, and your MR has to increase by +1 at each new level to keep it that way. That is -- enemy MR starts at 36 and increase by +1 at each new level (i.e. MR = 35 + level). See Combat.
    • More frequent and damaging Specials, see table below.
    • The "Winged Bone Champions" are confirmed to have a low resistance to magic. It is assumed that all of the more difficult opponents (i.e. level 80 and above) also have some resistance to magic
  • Level Skips
    • require combat vs an Ironbone Marauder (with a varying number of arms - 3, 4 or 5). The Marauders have more Stamina than normal enemies. I just killed one that had 393 Stamina, skipped a few levels, and then fought an enemy with 375 Stamina (thank you, black orb!). MR rating is slightly higher too, about 2 or 3 points.
    • bypass 2-4 levels (combats AND rewards, if any)
    • after defeating the Marauder you do have the option not to take the bypass but then you will have to fight the standard opponent for the same level
  • Ghostly Young Woman - An apparition
    • To succeed at taking her hand, you must beat 60 on 1-100 + Spirit + Mind + Aura. Best success chance = 100% (Changed by GM on 11/01/09).
    • By far the most rewarding Random Encounter of the Challenges, this rare encounter grants you a variable amount of experience to All Skills and Powers. See the table below for available rewards.
  • Additional Random Encounters: Blue Orb, Black Orb. See here for the details.

TipsEdit

  • See Key Concepts on the Challenges page for tips common to all Challenges.
  • At lower levels, the Level Skip from Iron Bone Marauder challenges should be avoided because they circumvent easy rewards. However, at higher levels they can be advantageous...
