Only four heroes remain to protect Ehb. Our Dungeon Siege 3 Walkthrough provides you with details about how to build your heroes, info on the story campaign, and secrets to unlock.
The road from the bogs to Stonebridge are crawling with more mercenaries under contract of Jeyne. Among them is the pack leader Svarbog that attacks with a gang of archers. As with past ranged enemies, close the distance and come in close to kill them easily. Be sure to also walk off the beaten path and collect treasure chests scattered along the road.
You'll eventually come to the city of Stonebridge. Talk to the towns people to gain some extra sidequests and a bit of gold. The Merchant Ursula will ask you to kill the deserters east of town that stole her silk supply. Ext to the road again and backtrack near the swamp. The bandits are the standard Azunite lot and don't pose much of a threat. Taking them out is worth the footwork.
Regardless of whether you complete this side mission or not, your main goal is to free the Chapterhouse and open the causeway from Rukkenvahl to Stonebridge. The Chapterhouse is full of powerful demons and traps that blast fireballs. These enemies also respawn when destroyed, making things hectic.
Thankfully, your goal isn't to actually kill the enemies, but locate the scrolls hidden behind doors and cages. Grabbing these written pieces of lore will dispel any enemies within the area. To make it even more handy, all of the scrolls locations are marked on your minimap. Because of this, leave the fighting to a minimum, thinning the enemy only enough to keep them off your back. Use your dodging and movement skills to rush and gather up all the scrolls, which in turn will destroy the enemy.
You'll automatically open a path back to Rukkenvahl, allowing you to return back to Raven's Rill with ease. You'll also most likely be high enough level to gain the second tier of Talents. Some characters have some good advanced Talents, namely Lucas' Focused Strikes.
Chat with Odo and Marten and learn that you need to gain some new allies. Since you're already in Stonebridge it makes sense to deal with them instead of traveling elsewhere (Though you can use the Causeways to find other allies if you wish). For now head along the quest path and meet with the Meisters.
Wulf will automatically support the Legion, but you'll still need two out of three votes from the following lords: Kassel, Mudgutter, and Fiddlewick. For now, completing Fiddlewick's requests are the easiest and closest. The Meister is more about settling domestic conflict rather than major battles. For your assignment you will have to decide what to do about the imprisoned Krug.
Meet with the protesters out in the main hall that want the Krug to be free. Next talk to the Krug in the jail cell to get his side of the story. Make your final choice with the constable guarding the cell and return back to Fiddlewick. He will want you to hear a claim to land from two citizens over in the Chapterhouse.
Travel back to the Legion stronghold and speak with Hans and Baron Barrenbaron. Both have owned the piece of land in the past, one under goblin rule and the other from human governments. Talk to them both and get each of their stories. You can choose to side with either, or degree that both only hold half a stake and must work together.
With the domestic squabbles resolved, return back to Fiddlewick to gain his support. While he may cast his vote for you at the moment, your actions with Mudgutter or Kassel might change his mind. You can pick which lord to help now, but Kassel's request can lead to some quicker devlopments.
Gear tips- Don't rely on value of item to chose best gear. - Look at stats that compliment your favorite skills, is no point in having high will if you a tank and no intention of using magic. - Vampire and stagger are priceless - If you have desert expansion boost gear not weapons and it will boost both stances
I must be a moron if this is dumbed down controls, with the 21 combat options I am constantly screwing up :) my only issue with game was camera angle and controlling camera especially with ranged character. These whiners who say no playability have me dumbfounded, the skill tree makes it replayable
Have more then 1 save thought , cause they lock the gate on you once you get to Upper Ravins Rills. To the town Hall to fight Rajani. I didn't and now I'm stuck here and cannot level up anymore or leave for more equipement.
is this a skyrim type of game or do you HAVE to vs spiders that massive spider cause im afraid of spiders and im 12
there are a few spiders in here but can kill them pretty easy most times. It is a fun game. Have more then 1 save thought , cause they lock the gate on you once you get to Upper Ravins Rills. To the town Hall to fight Rajani.
I don"t hate this game if you shelled out 60.00 bucks i could see how that wold suck but how good did you really expect it to be i mean obsidian made it was well worth the $18.00 i payed and co-op is a blast
you can buy at Amazon or Steam. I got for 5 dollars form Amazon and you have to make an account on Steam to play. or they have a PS3 version you can get also. On the PC you can use the XBox 360 controler for the game. I used the keyboard for part of the game then I picked up the controller at Best Buy for 25 dollars, and it works great with this game.
@wikkiwild1: I got him with Lucas on the second try, with Katarina as the other party member. Concentrate on destroying the spawning chambers, not on the automatons themselves, maybe lead them away a bit so that you can destroy the chambers without being attacked. Heal from time to time and you should be okay. @derek_brown: Actually, the game is much too easy for a DS game and very simplified, so I can't possibly comprehend what you don't understand.
@wikkiwild1 It took me a while but i finally got the Dapper Old Gent, i got myself ( Anjali ) to lvl 24 and used reinheart in my party and i got him.... but it wasnt easy
I've been stuck at the Dapper Old Gent for quite some time now. All other bosses I defeated easily enough but this guy is challenging. I agree with some about leveling up. It should be easier and not so many choices.
@JJames3dCG I totally agree with your statement. You can honestly say this about QUITE a FEW games out there. Developers and such are willing to spend more money on advertisements on these mediocre games and put that cost to the consumers. There is so many things wrong about how the companies and developers work to put out these games and expect us to continue to buy them at such a high price.
I think the bottom line comes down to this. For a full fledged Disc-Based game at \$60.00 the game is too short and does not include enough content to warrant a buy. It's a definite rent, as playing through everything and searching everywhere as a "completionist" type play through, the game will only take around 10-15 hours max! That is the big down side. The argument can be made that there's 4 characters each with their own play through, but the slight story variations aren't enough to make multiple playthroughs as diff characters worth while. May be fun to tinker around with a 2nd or 3rd character type, but not an entire playthrough. If the game were released on PSN/XBLA for \$9.99 it would have received better scores and been WELL worth the money. I could even be persuaded to spend \$19.99 on it. Was a fun game. But at \$60.00 and disc-based....no way it's worth the purchase. Seems like it was either rushed out the developmental doors, short the other half of the game.....or more likely, the money grubbing companies wanted to release \$7.99 dungeon packs once or twice a month for the next few months to make MORE MONEY, and that's where the other half the game went to. ie: other 10-15 hours of game play (making the would be total hour game play a more respectable 20-30hrs)
Damn. Theres a whole lot of haters on this comment board. While the game isn't a brilliant masterpiece, its definately not Brink bad. Also, it's a good filler untill Skyrim comes out, if you ask me.
Games to hard i dont understand the level up system.......and the level up system is stupid....hey did anyone find any glitch or cheats.............
Play it with an xbox controller on PC and it's a completely different game. I was pleasantly surprised how much of my hate melted away when i plugged in a controller.
Dc universe is another example of the 'dumbing down' of games released on multi platforms. There was once a time when games would utilise the controller to fully enhance gameplay on each and every platform. Unfortunately it seems that in our present financial global climate, software houses have chosen to save development costs and maximise profit margins. Simply by 'porting' from the now more popular console market to the pc. If u wanted to play with a controller u still had the option in most pc titles to do so. But come on it's a fundamental HUI flaw by altering simple things such as; [left click to walk to and open chest] & replace it with [use keys to walk to chest then press action button to open it] there is no basic utilisation of pc controllers. 1 pad vs 1 keyboard and mouse for a dungeon crawler? Which has more freedom to apply keybinds? Pffft I now sold the pc version and rock the ps3 one instead
If a game is made so that it can easily support a controller, it's almost certainly dumbed down control-wise. I'm not going to debate whether or not simpler controls are a good or bad thing since I haven't played this game beyond the demo, but generally speaking, my experience with PC games that are forced intro controller-complex schemes hasn't been good. After all, this game might not be balanced for lean either.
Dumbed down for consoles? I have to disagree harshly on that point. If anything, it is made so that you can use a controller for the game (my preferred method for gaming today, PC or not) without much trouble or need for configuration. That is why they left a lot of things out that were in the prior Dungeon Siege games, to make it easier on people like myself who prefer the ease of the console.
My Wife loves the original DS so we got this and loaded it on her computer. Right away it is obvious that it is dumed down for consoles. The first clue is that you have to use the pre chosen names instead of your own character name. You cannot save at any point just at predetermined points. The graphics are fair but after all they have to be supported by ancient console technology. The controls are clearly dumed down. It is a fair game and I think the rating of 6 is about right.
Added Version 1.1 of the guide. Placed in a few sidequests I missed around Raven's Rill. Also the story is now at the start of Stonebridge.
@issizots: question buddy, did you even play dragon age series. first of all they don't even fit in the same category to be compared, just because both called RPG, doesn't mean they are the same. This is supposed to be a classic hack and slash dungeon crawler.... Dragon age is an action rpg with pause base combat system. The story in these 2 is not even comparable. Dragon age`s story is engaging, entertaining and the characters are far more interesting. You actually grow to care about every single of them. That was an 80 hours game... this game... lets just say length wise puts COD series to shame. Dragon age is what a PC game should be... This is even shameful for a console game. Eve DA2 is a far better game than this.
@issizots Are you kidding? Dragon Age: Origins was much better, longer, and more story-driven than this. Dragon Age 2 on the other hand was about as good as DS3 just longer.
personally i don't get it, this and dragon age 1 and even DA 2 look just alike, but this ATLEAST KEPT BIRDEYE VIEW IN CONSOLES AKA DS3!!! BUT how can it get such a low score when dragon age 1 and 2 weren't that great NEITHER and they bumped up to 8's and in some cases 9s in review scores from critics.... maybe they would find the game better IF they only played the whole game... some games suck at the beginning like i didn't like final fantasy VII much at the beginning til i got out of freaking Midgar to explore and get cool stuff and lvl up!!
Frankly, this game looks and plays like it should have come out about 5 years ago. The visuals are blocky and dated, and the controls are only passable on for the PC. It is, in many senses, the worst of the series. Sure, you can get used to the clunky scheme, but it definitely shows that corners were cut to meet a ship date rather than focus on quality.
You can get the PC demo from Steam. A number of people are complaining about the controls being too 'console' oriented, and while I would agree with that, I'm still enjoying the game and the keyboard/mouse controls aren't really a problem after you play for a while.
The first version of the Dungeon Siege 3 guide is up. I'll be updating the walkthrough in the next few days, so stay tuned, toons.
