Human Flesh +5

Postby Xo Martel » Tue Feb 13, 2001 4:41 am

Hi, i'm trying to figure out how to get this armor.
......
from tanner shop at bridge district i got human flesh and letter.
i went to umar hills, talk to guy name "fael", bought book to trigger his reaction. he asked question.... i answered 5 (after trial'n error). but then he said it need one more ingridient to make the armor.
he asked for blood of a silver dragon.

Question: where can i find silver dragon? also what level does killing dragon considered good time? (currently lv 10's)

Any other pointers are appriciated and thanks in advance.

You shouldn't really kill the silver dragon(unless you're evil,that is)

You need to get a fair way into the game - after you sail to rescue Imoen, and finish Asylum is the first chance to get to Underdark. Silver dragon is good - helps if your party is evil. The armour, when you eventually get it is not that good and you'll probably have better already. Better armour can be had earlier by taking red scaless from Fierkrag, or shadow scales from Umar Hills to Cromwell. Image

It's your choice really.It is the best leather armour,but you must remember how high a normal leather armour's AC is

Actually, Shadow Dragon Armour is the best leather armour in the game. Although it might be classified as studded leather...

Really depends on what your going to be using it for.

I heard someone say that you could find the Blood on the SHADOW dragon- Mr. Toidsafhoigh. But maybe the guy is mistaken since no one I know has find any blood on the Shadow Dragon.

I have a question. When you confront the Fael in the Umur Hills about the Human flesh, he says something about you will get whats coming to you if your cross the rune. Then he walks off.

Anyone have any ideas on what he is talking about, and if anything else occurs with him after this?

You've got to give him the right answer, which you have to figure out by reading the note you got from the tanner. Then the human flesh leather armor quest opens. That armor is good since it's +5 and gives you magic resistance, but you can only use it if you're evil and it becomes available quite late in the game.

Killing the silver dragon (any dragon) is piss easy.

The easiest way is to get a wand of cloudkill and recharge it.

You may find a wand with something small like 2 or maybe 8 or 10 spells in it.
Sell it.
Buy it back, you now have 50 spells in it (stealing it is better though - I now have over 1 million gold from selling and stealing 16 wands back and forth - took 15 minutes though)

When you find a dragon, stand just out of reach so they can't see you.

Repeatedly cast the cloudkill near them but not close enough so they can see you (this is very close to maximum visible range of the character).

About 20 will drop any dragon easily. 10 if you are lucky.

The first baraage doesn't do that much, but if you cast a hole lot quickly, the dragon will heal him/herself once or twice, but then they seem to completely loose their immunity to magic (so they can cast heal on themself).

There is nothing useful on the silver dragon apart from her blood though. You have to have an evil character to wear the flesh +5 aswell. Oh, and you (well at least I) don't loose any repu for killing the dragon, and you do get experience.

And no, you can't pickpocket the blood off her (like you can with carsomyr apparently) - yes I spent 5 minutes trying, you can't get close enough.
