Although it’s the third installment in the Expeditions series, Expeditions: Rome is still fairly welcoming for newcomers to the franchise and the tactical RPG genre as a whole. Still, if you need some help (or just want an early game boost), here’s how you can obtain one of the best early-game weapons – the Spear of Achilles aka the best starting spear in the game.
Once you have conquered Lesbos, your journey will then take you to Asia Minor proper.
Once here, you need to head northeast until you find Troas, a small fishing village – for reference, it is directly north of the Temple of Apollon
Once you enter Troas, take the first left and follow the winding road until you come to another fork in the road.
Take the left path again and head up the hill until you end up at a villa that sits on top of a small hill. Mouse over the tree and take the clue that is hidden inside of it.
Check your “Quests” tab in your inventory, the clue that you picked up should read “Symbol of the Warrior Stone Tablet”.
Now, leave Troas and head east to a small peninsula; specifically the southwestern corner of this peninsula. You’ll know that you’re at the right peninsula if you see three small islands off its west coast.
A pop-up for “The Statue of the Warrior” should appear when you’re at the right spot. Read through it (if you want to) and then close it when you’re finished.
Check your “Quests” tab in your inventory, you should now have the “Symbol of the Warrior Brooch”.
Now, to find the last clue you have to head all the way back to Lesbos, specifically the beach on the southeastern side. You’ll know that you’re in the right spot when you get a pop-up titled “Buried Treasure”.
Check your “Quests” tab once more, you should see that you now have the “Symbol of the Warrior Papyrus”.
Your final destination is now the southernmost tip of a peninsula that lies directly west of the Troas fishing village. When you’re in the right spot, the Tomb of Achilles should be revealed.
This area is fairly straightforward (literally) just walk forward and loot the tomb to obtain the Spear of Achilles.
The base damage output of the Spear of Achilles isn’t anything special, its main appeal is the reaper status effect that it gives at the start of combat.
“Reaper” replenishes all action points, resets all used skills, and fully restores movement, every time the character kills an enemy.
Terraria: How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update
The 1.4.4 update for Terraria introduces a handful of new critters into the game that you can find in various locations.
There have been quite a few additions to the 1.4.4 update of Terraria. One of these additions is the new critters that you can find in various locations throughout the game.
In this guide, we’ll have a look at what those critters are and how you can find them.
How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update in Terraria
There are around four new critters that were added to the game in the 1.4.4 update. They’re as follows:
The Stinkbug is a tiny, flying critter that can spawn in the Forest biome. It’s quite easy to catch using a bug net, and you can use it as bait with a 10% Bait Power. Apart from that, you can also combine it with a Platinum Broadsword in order to create the Flymeal sword at a Honey pool.
The second critter is the Toucan which is a bird that can spawn on the surface, particularly in the Jungle biome. It has very little HP and zero defense, so if you want to catch it, you need to use a bug net. If you’re not careful, you can easily kill this bird due to its low health.
You can keep it inside a Toucan Cage (combine it with a Terrarium) and use it as decoration. However, do keep in mind that the Toucan will no longer be able to get outside of the cage after that.
Cockatiels come in gray and yellow variants, and you can normally find them in the Jungle biome, the same as the Toucan. Also, they have very little health with no defense, so using a bug net to capture them is a must.
As with the Toucan, you can use them as decoration by creating a Cockatiel Cage by combining your captured Cockatiel with a Terrarium.
Lastly, we have the Macaws which share the same spawning point as the previous two birds. They also have the same stats and can be placed inside the Macaw Cage to serve as decoration.
