Exam 5 Tips and Tricks

Use this thread to post solutions, secrets, and other items of interest you've found in the fifth 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 lava and a portal.

I used a mostly white build to some success. You can use communication to speak with the guardian, and he'll give you some info then it's all about getting over there. Which I think is best done with some combination of red, green, or blue. By the way I haven't gotten a black build far enough, but Could you use stone shape on the lava? I mean it is molten rock. By the way unrelated, but If a stuffed animal based on the guardian was ever made I'd buy like 20 e is so cute.

Sure, Communication + Seal. For pure black you can get away with just Seal + Inspect (and similarly Freeze + Inspect for a red mage) but you won't get credit for not turning the guardian hostile. I don't recall if there's any merits tied to that.

What was that about a Guardian's hostility? :?:
Here's what I have:
Not absolutely necessary, but helpful: White (Communication)
Probably necessary: befriending the Guardian(not sure, never went through without doing it) and disabling the trap. Inspect or advice from the Guardian needed for it.
Crossing the lava: Blue (Teleport Self), High Red (Freeze lava), Good Red-Green (Long jump), Moderate Green (Boost strength and Heal, applied in a timely fashion).
So far, I haven't been able to do anything with just White, and never tried Black.

Anyone who knows how to disable the trap will generally prefer to do it that way because it's cheaper, but it is also possible to move the pedestal out from under the shaft so that the trap can't hit you.

I was able to get around the trap by using Televoke to set it off while staying safe myself.
