View Full Version : Stuck with Malestos

04-29-2010, 10:10 AM
After playing less than one hour, I'm stuck with Malestos :
The first time I met him (and his minion), I've got back to town to buy a lot of health potions.
The second time (and after killing severals skeletons), his minion kill my character.
I've reloaded my savegame and now, minion's Malestos does nothing and I can't attack them.

Any tips ?

Thanks in advance.

Hello there.

Same problem here. The first time I meet Malestos, I run back to the town to buy potions, then I come back and kill all squeletons.

But nor Malestos, nor his minion move now and I can find nothing to fix that (quit game and reload...)

Any advice will be welcome.

You don't actually attack Malestos himself. The quest ends when you kill his minion, who just activated as I got close enough to him. Make sure you kill all those flame minion-things first since they spawn skeletons.

I did exactly as the OP described and am in the same position.

I have killed minion after minion going back and forth between Malestos and the chap who issues you with the quest in the first instance. I simply can't progress.

Can anyone shed any light, is this a bug or am I missing something?

I really do not want to have to start the game again if I can help it.

You are not supposed to leave the area. Doing so is what is causing the bug. Trust me, buy a lot of potions, kill all the casters first, then the archers and spawns, then the skeletons. Take a scroll of summon hire and/or exploding trap with you. After killing the main group proceed through the pathed area (NOT the back of the fence) until the cutscene happens. Then rinse & repeat. Kill the Fire Casters first, then Chill Mages, then Spawns, then Archers, then Skeletons. When you dwindle them down the Flesh Giant will attack. Target him and hit A once and you will auto attack him for the whole fight. Keep your fingers on your ability button and HP Pot button. And if you are playing a mage melee attack elites! I know it's strange but unless you have both AoE attacks you are FAR better off meleeing mano el mano vs single creatures.

I was flying through the game until midway through the third area where the boss stopped being targetable, a ballista disappeared, and a merchant stopped talking to me :p

It's a buggy buggy game but if you do like I said you will be fine.
