Testing Directives on QA: Lord British’s Castle

The QA server has been online and buzzing with people testing and trying out some new features.

Sannio posted some things that need tested and to get some feedback in Lord British’s Castle.

Test scene entry
Lord British’s Castle is accessible from the Mistrendur overworld, slightly north of the cross-continent galleon used to access Mistrendur.

  1. Only players with Episode 2 access should be able to enter this scene.

  2. Enter Lord British’s Castle and confirm you can do so without error.

  3. Exit Lord British’s Castle and confirm you appear in Mistrendur near where the castle is located.

Test wave battle areas/rooms
Once inside the scene, play through the wave battles. The wave battles are “challenge dungeon” style, similar to those in the Compendium of Pain and Suffering (beat a room to access the next, and each room is tougher than the previous).

  1. The start is through a doorway in the hedges.

  2. In each room, there’s a plate on the ground near the center. The plate has glowing effects that stop while the room’s wave battles are ongoing or finished. Everyone in the scene must stand on the plate to start the battle.

  3. You’ll get messages in each area to let you know when a wave or area is complete.

  4. When the area is “won,” the wave battles will stop, doors will open, and blue lights will activate to guide you to the next area. Important: No wave battle should respawn after the room is complete.

  5. When the throne room is clear, all wave battles are complete. Also, some additional doors open throughout the area to allow for bonus exploration.

Test the quests
There are 2 overlapping quests.

  1. There is a guard named Marisha near the scene entrance. Say “encoded cards” to her to start that quest. Also, say “key” to her to start the other quest.

  2. Proceed through the wave battles. Because you are on the Encoded Card quest, you’ll have chances to collect Encoded Card #1, #2, and #3, as well as vault Key #1, #2, and #3.

  3. Encoded Card #1 and key #1 will drop in the early areas, Encoded Card #2 and key #2 will drop in the middle areas, and Encoded Card #3 and key #3 will drop in the last areas.

  4. You can only have 1 of each quest item.

  5. Note that if you started the Encoded Card quest but not the key quest, the keys will still drop for you anyway.

  6. You can turn in any individual key to Marisha.

  7. Both quests are repeatable, but all quest items will cease to drop for the rest of the day after you hand them over.
