The lost Map of Lost Vale Challenge


Like i wrote earlier, i created a complete map from Lost Vale. You may have already seen the teaser, below is a new one from the final map. As creating a proper map from an outdoor instance has been more work then the other smaller dungeons, I'll not just post it, but you can unlock it! I'm launching the Challenge for the lost map of Lost Vale:

The Rules:
The challenge will have five parts. Each sub-challenge will have certain tasks/questions. Once all sub-parts are solved I'll post the next sub-challenge. To solve a task, just post your solution in the comments to that task (if you post your char name, you'll get credit for being the first solving it). It's not necessary to answer all at the same time, I'll update the post with those tasks that have been solved already. If necessary post a screenshot to support your solution. There is no time limit for the challenge, but the final map will only be unlocked (posted) once all five challenges have been solved. Sounds like fun? Then get started right away...



The original map to be unlocked is 1600x1900 pixel in size, shows all three wings with necessary points of interest and has some basic guides where you need to go. Orientation inside the outdoor instance is pretty easy once you found your way around, but many players like the other dungeon maps for initial orientation.



Challenge I tasks:
We'll start off with some easy questions...
Which of the magic winds do Necromancers that turn into Liches learn to master? Wind of Shyish/Purple (Yavvy & Walo)
How do you call a hybrid creature half chicken, half lizard? Cockatrice (Snafzg)
Who or what is a Shartak? A Dragon Ogre (Mileena)
Which creatures do Ogres use as mounts? Rhinoxen (Snafzg)

The third challenge is up...

I know the chicken/lizard hybrid is called a Cockatrice. I'm going to guess that Necromancers have mastered Dark magic. I'm also going to guess that Rhinoxen are Ogre mounts/beasts of burden.

How did I do?

Awesome contest idea btw! :D

Not bad actually 2/3, only the Necromancer part is wrong. ;)
If you like the first part, there is more to come.. hehe.

Snafzg said...

Ok, then the Necro must use Death magic. Or perhaps Shadow? In Warhammer Lore, Necros and Vamps use Dark magic. I guess it's different in WAR?

No clue about the other ones though. I'm still a ways away from Lost Vale! :P

#1 Is the wind of Shyish.

I believe the magic necromancers use is (this is pretty much a complete guess) the winds of shyish? most magic users use a wind of something, and shyish is the wind of death, so my vote goes for Shyish

Walo of Ironfist

aww I was beaten by 2 sec lol

Thulf said...

Yavvy & Walo are correct, the winds of Shyish/Purple. Check here for more info on the Winds of Magic: http://warhammeronline.wikia.com/wiki/Winds_of_Magic

With the upper body of an Ogre and the lower torso of a scaly quadruped, the Dragon Ogre is a fearsome sight. The Dragon Ogres, or Shartaks, as they prefer to be called, are revered by the Beastmen and other worshippers of Chaos.

Maybe i am wrong, but Shartaks should be Dragon Ogres

cheers

A Shartak is a lesser type of dragon ogre

Edelhelm, WH, Ironclaw

Mighty Muffin said...

If i remember correctly, Shartak is another name for Dragon Ogres.

Thulf said...

Dragon Ogre is the correct answer. That was quick guys, I'll post the next challenge later today. ;)
