Betty is just gonna have to accept shes an orphan

Post by nunnbt473 »

So how do most people do this quest now that illusion is worthless? With one person I mean, like below cob sized. Seems rather impossible. Infact, one person of low cob level size even seems like theyd have difficulity. Even if you used pass wall you still have PSI to contend with and high respawn rates.

I tried invis with my thief. Youd call it half a success really. She is safely home with Art, who will never see her but always hear her.

I thought about psi mirror+fireball twig, but I dont know if itd last long enough to get her to Art. And its not 100% and might kill her.

I considered something along the lines of fire prot + chip and + fireball twig or FP or something, but thatd require at least a skill 17 ment, 18 if you want chip.

I considered illusion walling her to create some kind of explosion. But apparently dropping walls and exploding things kills small children.

Also, apparently, she has a future in the Fantasic 4 because her invis basically never wears off.

Could a healer with scry bracers charm her to kick something while invis?

Does MT work on her?

Maybe I can reverse pick pocket her and she'll leave a corpse and I can go CC her on her fathers feet =X. Also, side note.. shouldnt reveal or detect or both or both together let you see invis things? Just saying..

There are people who are going to say it is do-able. Heck there are people who will SAY they can do it at level 1.

I haven't come up with a plan yet that will beat the quicker regen times and rounds. Absorption and haste might be a couple disc's (that you did not mention) that might help. There might be a path for illusion wall that dodges the regen spots.

2 ments with illusion is the ONLY way I've ever been able to successfully do it... or 1 high level ment and a mid level barb/something that can kill mass amounts of crits with control, relatively of course.

Way way way back in the day, like 10 years ago I could take a 1/6 ment through with a few zaps or high ep/a couple uzi and wall in from the NW corner. It was difficult and had about a 40% success rate, but was doable. Now Im pretty sure I couldnt do it with a ment if I was 75/15 solo

I ran Betty quest with a mentalist to move her and 1 escort to run interference.
It is feasible to do with just a mentalist, but less chance of success.

How big was this escort though? This nork quest went from 1 low-mid level norkian to 2 mid-large cob sized critters..

As long as the escort can stay ahead and check sides while being able to kill with one to 2 shots, it will be fine. The two I used was well over powered. I may do a test with smaller though. I have a level 23 Mentalist and a level 16 healer I can check with. key things needed for my strategy is Illusion, respirate, passwall, and 2 accounts. Preparation before attempt is vital.

In Challenge Nork, I was able to complete betty on an 18/16 or 17 ment solo. Success rate was probably only about 50 to 60%, but it was doable. You kill everything, make walls to betty, wait for re-spawn, kill everything, then lead her out before next re-spawn and sometimes have to kill a few things on the way back out.
