Marauders are intimidating large blue lizard-like monsters found in many locations of The Cycle: Frontier. They drop many good materials required for things like better armor and the like. On top of that, many of the Factions’ quests will ask you to hunt them. But how exactly should you deal with them in combat? Here’s how.
How to Farm Marauders in The Cycle Frontier
Farming Marauders is actually easier than you might assume at first. Marauders are large blue lizard-like creatures that can be found in many locations in every map. You should have no trouble finding lots of them naturally. There are some key tips to keep in mind when dealing with them, however.
Know Their Attacks
Marauders have a limited pool of attacks. This means it’s easy to get to know them, which you should so you can avoid them easier.
Their first attack is a toxic ball of spit. They will stop, open their mouths and shoot a ball of toxic spit at you. They are vulnerable as they expose their mouths while they prepare to spit. You’ll notice their mouth glows bright orange when they prepare to spit, this is your moment to shoot. Don’t get too greedy though, remember to dodge the spit.
Their toxic spit will deal damage to you over time but also damage your armor, so you definitely want to avoid it. Also, if it hits the ground directly, you want to avoid standing on the spot it hit or you’ll take damage.
Secondly, they have a lunge attack. They mostly do this attack when they are close to you. Keep your distance and move away from them fast if you get in close range. This attack can be a bit hard to read, so it’s harder to dodge than the spit. Generally, Marauders will try to do two lunges back-to-back. Keep your distance to prevent them from even doing this attack.
Of course, having the proper weapons is always key to winning a fight. In the case of Marauders, one of the best guns you can use is the Voltaic Brute. However, the ICA’s Guarantee and Osiris’ Flechette are also really great weapons. You also want to have a converter attachment on any gun you use, as this increases your damage. Additionally, any attachment that increases damage to monsters is a great option here.
Use your Environment
Generally speaking, Marauders are always attempting to close distances so they can use their lunge attacks. One simple trick to avoid this, is to take advantage of any elevation in the environment. Being at either a higher or lower elevation than them will force them to use their spit attack instead. The spit attack is a lot easier to deal with once you get used to it, so this makes them pretty easy to kill. With this in mind, killing lots of Marauders will be no trouble at all.
How To Get A 4th Ingredient Slot For Necromancy In Spellforce Conquest Of Eo
Make the undead fight for you by using this guide!
The Frozen Throne was one of the RTS games I previously played, and I recall playing the campaign and going up against the undead only to discover that you actually sided with the undead in the end. Given the discussion of the undead, some of you may be familiar with necromancy in Spellforce. If you’re lacking the fourth ingredient and are unsure of how to obtain it, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered.
The 4th Ingredient Slot For Necromancy
It is important to note that you may complete all Necromancy concoctions, even Tier 3 units, with just the initial three ingredients. To make some of the more challenging undead, you will undoubtedly require higher quality ingredients.
However, if you have advanced in the game sufficiently to obtain the more valuable resources, you do not need the fourth ingredient.
Open your Grimoire to see the location of the fourth ingredient for necromancy. When you’re in the Grimoire, use the tabs at the bottom of the screen to go to the Necromancy page; the icon is a malevolent hand emerging from the ground.
There are a number of challenges there, and each one provides a prize. The first three tests concern spells. After successfully completing the first three tasks, you receive the Summon Necromancer Minions, Soul Cage, and Soul Catcher.
But the Soul Well, a unique room, can only be accessed by completing the final task. You will receive new prizes as you unlock this room and add it to your tower, such as weekly souls, an extra army stack space, and the option to utilize a fourth ingredient when summoning undead creatures using necromancy.
