Title: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: Cat-Star4 on February 18, 2011, 02:01:59 PM
Well, I have Fand's candle lit, and the Arch Druid is gone, but I'm not sure which candles to light, and every time I try to use the magic circle in the large rock circle, I get fried. Also have no idea what to do with the live emot crying thing that I have.

Have you tried looking for something that helps you know
what those symbols mean?  They're all to be found somewhere else in the game with explanations.

Yes, but I haven't found the thing that is supposed to help me understand the symbols.

Try looking on the outside wall of the local news office.

Also, if you've got the crying emoticon item, you should submit a screenshot and your save file to our 'Everyone Needs a Little Suffering' Contest--you could win stuff!

Ok, that I will do!
I know what the symbols mean now, but I still have no idea what I'm doing and keep getting fried

You need to light specific candles for each item.

I figured that, but I can't figure out what candles need lit for what items. I've been at this for 2 hours now.

Oh, I can't seem to get the screenshot to paste. I do press the print screen button don't I?

Head back to the Isle of the Crown and try doing some reading. :)

Also, it's Ctrl+Print Screen.

Well, I know for the Nightshade flower I need Life, Air and Water, and even for extra measures I wrote down the zodiac symbols and which element they represent, unless fire or earth is supposed to the life part, and I went back and read up on the Samson and Delilah story, but I'm not making the element connection

Ahh, ok!

Comma placement is important! :) That sentence is stating the elements of Life are Air and Water--Life isn't an element. Once you get the right signs lit up, you'll need to enchant the proper item.

Well, I lit up all the air and water candles....unless I only need to light one of each...

I just get a black screen when I paste the screenshot in paint.

Yeah the screenshot will only work if you do it in windowed mode instead of fullscreen.  But you've done exactly the right thing there.  Now just

go use the flower on the glowing firepit.

Ok, this time I have it figured out on the items.
earth and fire candles for the shears and water and air for the flowers!

After i got the Cry Baby Emoticon, i have no idea how to activate the Correct Symbols, i dont even know what Zodiac signs are.

Besides, what am i suppose to do with this Emoticon anyway
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: Cat-Star4 on February 18, 2011, 04:36:57 PM
Well, the zodiac signs are posted on a certain New Paper on the Isle of the Crown. You might wanna get a sheet of paper and write the signs and symbols and what they stand for down, that's what I had to do. With the emot, take a screencap and email it!

I saw the Signs and i still dont get it, because its also Frustrating to go back and forth to see what Candle to light and then Guess what im suppose to throw in.

Please give me the Right Symbols

By the way, i havent even done One Ingredient in the List from the Scroll and are we even gonna go to the Isle of the Beast

Might be easiest to just get a piece of paper and a pencil, draw the signs, then write what element they go with next to them?

daventry, make sure you have read all of the books in the bookshop on Isle of the Crown. There are a couple of useful hints there.
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: KatieHal on February 18, 2011, 05:16:28 PM
You're already on the Isle of Mist. :)
Read the books--and the newspapers that are posted on the bulletin board as well.

I have lit all of the right candles and saw a note in this thread that I need to use the flower on the glowing fire pit.  I tried using it on both the firepit outside of the tree house and the one by the gem tree, it won't let me for either.  When I use it on the firepit inside of the Stonehenge, there is a blast that kills me.  How do I infuse the flower with life?
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle

The flower will already have the life force in it at this point.

Post by: gobrien1 on February 18, 2011, 06:27:40 PM
OK, but I still die when I put the flower on the Stonehenge pit.  How do a do this and stay alive?

Post by: Cez on February 18, 2011, 06:29:48 PM
You have to be very exact with the signs you light up. Try doing some research in the Isle of the Crown. You should be able to figure it out by doing some reading in various places.
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: Talos on February 18, 2011, 06:59:34 PM
There is more than one symbol per element, though...
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: Cez on February 18, 2011, 07:03:52 PM
Yes. so.. if you wanted to get the full power of each element, what would you do?
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: Talos on February 18, 2011, 08:45:57 PM
I guess less-than-full power kills you!  ;D

Did all this, still got fried.
I just corrected a symbol. Now it works.

I read the Symbols about Air and Water, then i lit up the Candles according to those Two Symbols, i drop the Flower in and i get Fried.

This is Frustrating and Wasting My Time, Please give me the Answers.
Title: Re: Having a hard Time with the Arch Druid's Candle Circle
Post by: drunkenmonkey on February 19, 2011, 04:30:29 PM
You are definitely using the wrong symbols. The way I remembered the symbols was to think of what they reminded me of. So earth and fire signs were:

question mark, heart, knife, infinity, bull, antlers. And air and water were all the others.

On the arch druids circle the the earth and fire symbols and the air and water symbols will have the candles lit and spaced out in groups of two lit candles together. Good Luck. :)

There are three symbols for each element, so you should be lighting far more than two.

Maybe you solved the "door to the Dreamworld tower" puzzle #2.  I am inside the tower, but cannot figure out how to use the opened door against the 2 ghouls outside.

Try closing it :)
