This week I took a break from bug fixes to work on some new content for Vidar, because it's always nice to have more game to play. This week, we're ready to preview how "Make it Work" will, well, work.
This quest is designed to do a few things:
And so, if you happen to be pushing Arpad along his leadership plot, you'll have the opportunity to get "Make it Work" in two different ways. First, if you happen to have "Den of Darkness" but Etel doesn't join you in entering the Wolf Cave, Arpad will step up to join you instead. Trade a coward for an indecisive hero? I'm not sure it's any better, but it's something. Second, if you can't get either "Scared of Shadows" or "Hunting Party" (the two current paths into the Wolf Cave), then Arpad will offer the quest to you as well.
Arpad has some extra tools up his sleeve in the Wolf Cave, and can be used in ways to make the puzzle a little bit easier. People trying to avoid Etel's....lack of usefulness...might angle to try to get the quest this way instead.
"Make it Work" is one of 4 new quests we're adding in the upcoming patch, hopefully you'll find it rounds out our game a little bit more!
In addition to new quests, we've got some new mechanics cropping up in the Water Cave. Generally speaking it's been a good idea to try to "drain" each map to move forward, in order to reach levers etc. That's not a safe assumption anymore:
We'll have more previews ready for you next week!
