    What? Oh, I'm definitely screwed then! Hadn't come across those yet.
    You must be joking. They showed up quite early in the game for me.

    This afternoon I started up Home to start some Skyrim and there he was, at the top of my friends list: Brian Wildt: Playing In Death

    'Of course!', I thought to myself...
    I saw that as well but a few days ago. He ADDICTED TO IT. LOL

    Hmm, well, I've been through a couple of levels and not seen them. Couple of levels is probably bugger all, but as I said, I always take one chance too many  :/

    It's your achievement percentage that unlocks the various enemy types - not how far you get into the levels of the game.

    Really? I have no idea about achievements, so I'm still none the wiser :D

    As I mentioned - if I knew more about the game, I'd probably do a lot better. Maybe I should look for some vids on YouTube or even a guide somewhere.

    Edit: Hah ha ha! When I put "In Death Guide" into Google, it gave me a load of results about funeral services and wills!

    It also gave me this, though:

    Which is a start.

    @Wildt you’re losing your touch...you’re no longer in the top ten.  ;)
  • WildtWildt Posts: 1,791 Valuable Player
    Yeah, I've stopped playing leaderboard runs, untill they fix the long distance headshot achievements. They cannot be achieved in the current build, and its a massive handicap not having them. 
    Been playing ladder challenges instead - here both players get the same unlocks.

    I must have missed that.  Ladder challenges?
  • WildtWildt Posts: 1,791 Valuable Player

    There are 7 tiers of players who can challenge eachother in a 30 minute async game where the both players get the exact same seed for level layout, same unlocks and arrow drops etc, so it's a fair game.

    Oh those. No one ever follows up on them. I can complete a challenge and nothing comes of it. Quite annoying. 
  • WildtWildt Posts: 1,791 Valuable Player
    edited December 2018
    The low tiers are quite inactive, but if noone responds to your challenges, they count as wins for you still.

    So just challenge everyone on your tier and score a few points, and at the day of reckoning you"ll get a nice bump up the ladder.

    The top tiers are a lot more active.

    I need to get back in to this game soon. Wildt's 1-hour video inspired me! Although I noticed in the first 2 minutes of the video a mob dropped a health potion. Fake news, the game never gives me health potions. Haxx

    Lo and behold - the game suddenly fixed itself, and all the previousy unachievable achievements unlocked, and I'm now rocking 100%. Time to go for a leaderboard run - now I have no excuses!

    Hoping to re-enter top 10!

    I'm gradually getting better at this - must be all the archery I'm doing in SkyrimVR.

    When I started my sesh tonight, I was at around 8,400 in the all-time list (Brian was at number 10 - slacking?). When I quit I was at 7,012 - so that's something. For the first time, I got an upgrade - flaming arrows, which I really like. But I'm getting a lot more headshots in. Despite that, sometimes I feel incredibly inept, as I stand there, launching arrow after arrow at something only about 20ft away and miss with the first half-dozen. :s

    However, I'm getting a lot more tactical - using the pillars for cover and just leaning round them and ducking back to avoid the incoming arrows and axes, plus teleporting to about 6ft away from the bad boys and shoving a load of arrows into them before they can react. I also managed to kill quite a few with the shield - hadn't realised that was even possible.

    My better scores may also be down partly to the fact that my arm isn't getting as achey as quickly as it used to.

    By the way, Brian - when I watched your video, at first I thought the repeater crossbow was an exploit!




  • Digikid1Digikid1 Posts: 1,836 Valuable Player
    That crossbow is awful. I’ll never use it again. I use the bow but in a crossbow like way. A lot easier and very oddly enough.....feels natural as if I did it before. Weird. 

    I played a bit today. Bad day for it though as I never even made it to Anakim. Ah well. Got four achievements though for a total of 61%.

    This game is just fantastic. Had another random go just now. Was looking through my library, even though Elite was calling to me, when I spotted this again, I couldn't resist. It makes me laugh and want to cry - all at the same time! :)

    Got further than ever before. What makes me laugh, is that I aim at the same place, but first my arrow will go just to the left of his head, the next one goes just to the right - so, yeah, I think the next one will go right between his mince pies - but no, it flies over his bonce! :D 

    Today, I finally realised how to add the extra arrows to my "quiver". I learned the immense joy of explosive arrowheads. I actually got into a bell tower and upgraded (double arrows of one type) and gained extra health bonuses. I was so close to the end..... but I missed the barsteward who was only about 2 feet away and his axe ended my round. I'd be pissed off, but it's just so much fun!

    oh - it also has the dubious accolade of "game that makes me punch solid things the most"




  • Digikid1Digikid1 Posts: 1,836 Valuable Player
    My trick is this. When aiming look PAST the arrow and at the enemy. Your vision will change so that you are seeing two arrows. Put your target between them. Works every time for me. 
  • JD-UKJD-UK Posts: 2,287 Valuable Player
    edited January 17
    Right - I'll give that a go. I do look at the target, anyway, but I'll make an effort to get the arrows aligned. I was thinking they put in a bit of aerodynamics and thus no two arrows ever hit the same spot - but I'll be fuffed to chuck if that's not the case.

    Another thing I got today - but no idea how - was the slow motion thing. That was just awesome, combined with the exploding arrowheads (and I had the frozen ones, too). Jumped on the top of the roofs and took out loadsa baddies :)

    PS - also met those annoying floating skeleton things. Ugh - gave me the willies!




  • Digikid1Digikid1 Posts: 1,836 Valuable Player
    Yeah the flying skeletons are creepy as heck. Go for the heart area for them.

    Been playing this a lot lately, and happy to see my placing dropping by a few thousand - now about 2,800 ish.

    I seem to have unlocked something that means I now have harder enemies right from the off - and many more of them. Don't know how I managed that - I did get 3 unlocks since yesterday, but on my wall, there are 3 remaining to be unlocked - just as before. So don't know what those unlocks were, as all the waffle on the notice is too much to remember.

    Finally, finally got to the big Boss at the end of the level - twice now, but how the hell do I kill that and all the other nasties that show up? I'd need a large supply of the most potent arrow types!

    Anyway, improving my tactics all the time, so getting better scores. Not reached 50,000 points in a round, yet, but am very close. That's my next target. I also found that hidden levels can be reached by shooting a teleport arrow (something I regularly forget about when traversing the level) at a murial on the wall. That's chock-full of nasties, too!

    Getting really addicted to this game - even getting better with the crazy crossbow, though it's not my weapon of choice.

    @Brixmis

    Either try to kill him off real quick (with headshots and/or special arrows like I did in the video posted in this thread), or go for the slow burn method.
    The monks who spawn in the walls, do so for each 20% or so damage you inflict on Anakim, so you can take them out slowly one wave at a time. 
    What you DON'T wanna do is quickly bring him down to e.g. 15% health and then attempt to fight the combined 5 waves of monks.

    Every monk and zombie dies when Anakim does.

    Here is a comprehensive guide.

    The best and easiest way to kill Anakim is to spam him with explosives.  After you teleport down place those mine arrows quickly on the stairs them start spamming him with catalyst arrows like crazy. 

    I’ve done this many times now.....without getting shot ONCE by his white robed minions. 

    Works EVERY time. Just be sure to get and save your catalyst and mine arrows for him. 
  • JD-UKJD-UK Posts: 2,287 Valuable Player
    Sounds like great advice - I'll see what I can do... :|

    After purg 12 not even a full quiver of cat V will take him down.
