Quick Money?

Post by mrprmiller » Sat Dec 17, 2016 6:36 pm

Is there a faster way to get 50 centime (or a free map) than the "sell beard" glitch?

I need 50 centime after barter with the map seller to get the map. I can get everything else to beat the game completely for free. I did a trial run as a test, and with one "sell beard," 150 gold and 14 dinari and 50 centime remaining, I killed Ad Avis - 20 minutes on first try.

Lamp for 0 if you "tell about fire elemental"
Incense for 0 if you barter
Cloth bag for 0 if you "tell about earth elemental"
Bellows with the Fetch spell
Earth from the plant seller outside of the Magic Shop.
Map for 50 centime, even with 250 communication skill.

5 into magic gives you Flame Dart, Calm, Open, Fetch (and more, but don't need it).
The rest into throwing puts you in the range to throw earth successfully into the Air Elemental.

At the Djinni, "wish for magic" + "wish for health" in that order to recover your new Mana Points.
Guards at the end are each killed in one-shot with Flame Dart (no Dazzle or combat needed).

Thief starts with 5 daggers, one of which can be thrown quickly at Ad Avis's brazier to trigger the win.

But where's the fun in winning the game so quickly and avoid the regular stuff you get to do, while spending hours instead of just 20 minutes? ;)

Oh, sweet, sweet Elsa... Always so worried about preserving the story. :) I have no intention of spending 20 minutes. I'm going to make the game go much, much faster. :D

Speed runs are something people who have already played the game extensively do. It's a challenge, a test of their knowledge of the game, as well as their reflexes, in order to complete it as fast as possible.

Sounds like it, yup! :) And I do find it impressive that people - including our own friend, Miller, manage to finish the Qfg games so fast! (Y)
