Quest: The Hive
Received from: the oracle, I guess. Just go to the hive after you free Archibald
Special Problems: Town Portal and Lloyd’s Beacon do not work; you cannot rest inside the Hive.
Difficulty: hard to very hard
Description: Frankly, the final quest in the game is pretty darn easy at this point. If you choose to use blasters, I strongly recommend using real time combat, not turn-based. I don’t have any hard scientific data here, but when you enter a room packed wall to wall with demons, the blasters seem to work better in real-time than in turn-based combat. Also, don’t forget your spells. These are not special demons immune to everything but blasters (forget what the oracle said, he lied), so kill them anyway you see fit. However, remember that you cannot teleport out of the dungeon, so you won’t be able to do any of that “cast like crazy, then teleport to the temple, then return” monkey business. Finally, the hive queen is a pushover (two dragon’s breaths killed her), but her minions come to her aid, making the battle more difficult. If you are tired of slinging demon meat around the room, enter the queen’s chambers and back into the corner so that only she is visible. The other demons will become confused and you can take her out with ease.
