Bard's Tale 3 Hints and Walkthroughs
Tips and Guides
Clues from the box:
is in ruins. Roscoe's Energy Emporium
stands vacant. The Equipment Shoppe
went under so quickly Garth
was crushed. Your Bard hasn't stopped whimpering since he realized all the taverns
Someone - or some thing
- has sealed the city's fate with an evil so vast, so unspeakable, that a host of Paladin
s and an army of Archmage
s are outmatched. Smaller is better. Sneakier is better. What the world needs now is a thief
The Mad God ravaged Skara Brae.
|Arboria: Valarian's Bow and the Arrows of Life are only two of the prizes you'll gain from the strife.
||Kinestia: Spells will cost you dearly to cast, so find where Umbrech is hidden real fast.
|Lucencia: Red monsters are trouble, but the blue ones are double.
||Tenebrosia: Blackscar is where you'll want to go, before the shadows deepen your woe.
|Gelidia: The ice storm whips up a terrible chill, so hurry to Lanatir or be frozen still.
||Tarmitia: Travel in time and between the wars, survive the battles and the Strifespear is yours.
|Malefia: Evil evil, from the cracks they tee, when will you wake from this nightmarish dream?
It lies in ruins unto this day.
Death is assured to all who dare
Invade his domain to challenge him there.
Ancient runes have long foretold
Of a thief worth thrice his weight in gold.
He moves in shadow across the land
With the fate of the world in nimble hands.
Take a level 1 character (who has never visited the review board) along with your strong party down to Brilhasti. Kill Brilhasti while making sure to keep the level 1 character alive. When teleported to the review board the character will advance to level 35. What a trick!
Unlimited Experience Exploit
If you can get into Arboria, complete the quest in that universe, and get back to the review board, the old man awards everyone 600000 exp. Now in this game, that isn't really alot, (about 2 to 4 levels?) but here is a glitch: if you go back outside, conjure up an air wolf or another creature and put it in slot 1, then go back in again, you will get another 600000 exp!! This can be done forever, so it kind of makes the rest of the game pointless. After 20-30 trips and your characters have enough hits and magic to destroy a world, the only battles you HAVE to fight are in Malefia ( where Tarjan is ). But you have to solve each alternate universes quest to get the spells allowing you to get to the next universe. I would like to know if this glitch is present in any other version (ibm, c-64, etc) besides the Apple IIe version I used.
