Do you play Game! too? Maybe you should discuss it in here.

Is there a particular place you have to go to get a stick? I assume that's what I need to make something with the clumps of ox hair I have?

Sticks are available anywhere level 20 and up (and with increasing frequency at higher levels).

Wouldn't you know, ONE MINUTE after I read your answer, one dropped for me! :lol:

And, my surmise about why I needed one was correct! :D

Asking for some hints

Post by Yeti » Wed Sep 11, 2013 6:04 am

Hi folks,

I'm still missing one pet (and three camp improvements). I'd like to get a bit of clue where to look...

As for pets, I've got:
4 various knights (still one mising?)
BSA
the dusty lady
the flying rock
GAC#2 (is there #1?)
the green-hat guy
the noble steed
the weird thing with a keyboard
the animated bedsheet
the lady with a broom

Anybody with a cluebat still around? :)

You're still missing one Black Knight variation. You'll need to get out your Duct Tape to make the last one.

For campground improvements, they all come from [ using ] items, try to figure out what items you're missing (and/or try exploring areas you don't normally visit, many items only drop in one area).

Ahh, thanks! Will check that.

OK, I know I have to [use] them. So there's none that can be obtained by combining (i.e. they're all drops)?

BTW I still don't know how to [use] the Mint Leaf (but I did cook a tasty meal with it).

Anyway, thanks for the pointer!

Errrm one more beg for a clue: do I use the "plain" Black Knight or some more fancy one?
I tried to combine BK with Stick but had no luck making "Sticky Black Knight" :shock: Gonna try Balling Wire to make "Wired Black Knight" :D

They're not all drops. Many campground improvements require combining other items to produce a new item. Of course, you'll still need to [ use ] the resultant new item.

As for the Black Knight experiments... well you'll just have to experiment! You're on the right track though.

OK, thanks!

Sometimes, I have to wonder what's going on in your mind when you're "inventing" new options for Game; e.g. the recipe for Pecan is kinda... mind blowing :D
Oh well...

Yeti is off ruining a few more Black Knights :lol:

Edit: YEAH, got the last missing BK (now WK) without ruining anything in just ~4 tries! Woot! :lol:

Edit2: Okay, what does the WK do? I didn't notice any change in my stats and apparently it's not involved in monster killing...?

No, he's involved in monster killing. Try a few more battles...

Well... got him to level 15, tried magical attacks and manually bashing monsters with my Especially Magic Dagger, nothing. Tried easy levels, nothing. Tried Prison, nothing.

At least, *I* didn't notice a single apperance of "Your WK blinds Evil Pinata by reflecting sunlight for 432 damage" or something :lol:

I'm quite puzzled about this.

Try paying closer attention when you get critical hits.

Ooooh! OK, I finally got it. I normally use Major Life Drain and get few critical hits. that's why I didn't notice the effect.

Thanks for your patience :lol:
