Defending Redcliffe (Spoilers)

#1link3505Posted 11/11/2009 10:47:54 PM
I have the sinking feeling that I'm doing this wrong. I've got Lloyd, the dwarf, the elf, and the blacksmith to help with the battle. Found the oil in the general store and got that trap set up. But I'm having a problem with the endless baddies down by the chantry. I feel like I'm either missing something, or something isn't happening when it's supposed to. Hell, at this point, I'm questioning whether or not it's even possible to successfully defend the town

Tell me, anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

don't think your doing anything wrong really, one thing that helps is to run up to the knights when things starts getting bad

I missed the oil and the dwarf, and I still managed to beat it fairly easily. One thing to remember is to loot the bodies of any fallen soldier before the battle ends; they have a ton of good studded leather armor that is great for a rogue or for selling.
How many emos does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None, they'd rather sit alone in the dark and cry.

A mage with crowd control spells (ie. Cone of Ice, Waking Nightmare) helps a ton.

I'm doing that right now. The only problem is when I return to the battle area, there are more undead than my party can handle. Plus, they keep dying... Do I just need to keep at it, or what?

There's nothing you should be doing other than killing undead for quite a long time. And maybe running around at the very end hunting down a couple stragglers who got caught on the geometry so that you can trigger the end of the battle. So yeah. As long as undead are still pouring in, just keep killing 'em.

What does your current party consist of?

yeah.. i'm kinda stuck there as well. i'll shortly be trying this out with 3 tanks (alistair, sten and myself). Leliana dies pretty fast

My current party is me (human male warrior), Allistar, Morrigan, and the wardog. Haven't actually picked up any new party members yet

Sounds like both of you just need a healer, yet you can't pick one up right now unless you like Redcliffe getting destroyed...

Have you consider turning the difficulty down just for this battle?
