Puzzle - "The four plagues" hints? (solved)

Post by spectre900 » Wed Oct 15, 2014 9:18 pm

Not really sure what to do. I'm not really looking for a straight answer, more like some hints n stuff.

I guess it requires some sort of items to represent the different plagues or something, but what?

Does battle mean I put a sword in there, and what about famine? I need an energy potion for that?
Cold means I put some clothes in there, or the necklace maybe?

I just can't figure it out... >.<


Edit: Finally got it.
Didn't realize famine had to do with hunger, thought it meant tired or exhausted at first. ._.
In other words, it needed a "cure" for each plague except maybe battle. But I suppose a battle is often "ended" by killing everyone else.

Err what's a cure for disease? If there is a cure disease potion, I haven't found one or the recipe yet ? :)

A healing potion does just fine. To sum up:
Disease: Heal potion
Famine: Food
Cold: Cloth(any armor?)
Battle: Weapon

Probably anything wearable works...including the necklace (guess). Thanks for potion hint...I was overthinking I guess.

That puzzle was funny. I saw it, figured I didn't have the needed items.
Went through the dungeon. Came back.
The first set of things I put on the alcoves worked. I didn't really expect that.

Fortunately there seems to be multiple solutions as there are more than one right answer to overcoming each plague.

I used the following items.
SpoilerShow
Famine: Turtle meat.
Battle: Rapier.
Cold: Frostbite Necklace.
Disease: Antidote.
