Exam 4 Tips and Tricks

Use this thread to post solutions, secrets, and other items of interest you've found in the fourth exam. Or, if you're stuck, post your list of spells and ask for advice.

Please do not post bugs here, those go in the main development thread!

This exam features gates and a monster.

Up to exam 4 I've been able to do with a high focus of blue magic. Same here.

With Red, I was able to just nuke the monster down with lightning and other attack spells. Easy, but you only get a "pass".

With Green, I was able to use Vines and Blind to stop the monster from following me to the end, gaining a bonus for a non-lethal solution.

For extra credit, you can just Push or Force Push the monster away whenever it gets too close. It can't go faster than you, and you only need a couple of extra turns to cast Light and pull the lever.

At least I thought you could, but trying again, I get the following error:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

For those with low magic stats, it is possible to escape the dungeon without any magic or strength at all. Just open the gates and wander around the dungeon. You'll probably get hit by the monster once.

You'll also want to use some form of magic (like Inspect) once in order to pass the exam with merits.

In my blue/black build it was pretty easy Although it was before the update, and I just teleported him in the hole. Which yeah I agree isn't very pacifist, but it is kinda funny. In my most recent white build I had to resort to mostly just out smarting him. Although I'm sad I was hoping I could be friends with it as the theme I was going with my white run was friend to everyone. I even tried to talk to the plant dummies oh well at least I can befriend most of the students.
