I need help with the Quest - I entered the area and an archer downed me rather quickly (he was far away too).
It was a waste of food.

So, advice please. Stategy etc. How many archers and what else is in there. (I'm already thinking about the weekend).

Cheers!

Ok I had the same problem and I was rather annoyed a lot with that quest.

As it turned out thought it was really....REALLY easy.

You only need to sleep them. Nothing else. Sleep any of those archers you see until you find that jar. Once you do that there will be a small fight but nothing serious.

Hey GM!

I will say someone also gave me the sleep them hint and while it helped me I still wasn't able to win (although sleeping them still turned out to be part of the trick.)

The real trick came with running to gridania and unlocking CNJ and just taking it to level 2. Once I had cure unlocked, I used sleep on him and then cured myself in between...

I'm also a Lalafell so I'm extra squishy Smiley: lol

Edit: I reread what you wrote, if the archer is the one you're having trouble with... try not to jump right into the battle, let the other guys grab all the hate first then pick off the enemies one at a time!

Your edit is pretty much the LNC lvl15 quest.

Went after those wolves spear blazing the first time and had my fluffy tail handed back to me in an instant. Smart play was circling the outside and picking off the aggro wolves until I could safely pull away the pack leader.

Another tip, the mobs are sight-based for agro with a little bit of proximity. You can slip behind them as they patrol, too.

Getting CNJ to get Cure (and Protect!) before stepping in the instance significantly helps your survivability, yes.

THM Level 15 quest is basically like this.

You get put into an area with 4, mostly spread out, archer enemies.

You can sneak past the first two easily, if you want to. The last two are linked and are usually facing opposite directions, so it's frustrating sneaking past them.

What the NPC quest giver tells you to do is just Sleep and run. So that's what you're supposed to do -- Sleep each archer and run to the next.

Once you've bypassed the 4 archers, you have to run to a pot and interact with it. Because Sleep is only 30 seconds, I recommend Sprint here to get to the pot faster. (It's not like you use TP anyway...) Cue Cutscene.

Phase 2:

Once you finish the cutscene, you'll be stuck in a fight with two enemies. It is highly recommended that you Sleep one to cut down on incoming damage. A Lalafel Alchemist NPC will be there with you tossing heals on you, but his healing is a bit unreliable. As you are killing, Archers will start showing up in the fight, one at a time. Just Sleep them and keep killing. You should be able to deal with all of them easily if you are defensive.

You can entirely bypass the last two archers without even needing to sleep them as well.

If you take the dead end right path at the fork you can stand on the ledge and just jump down when their backs are turned and walk on without touching them.

That is definitely pure luck then, as when I tried that, they aggroed me immediately.

Ahhh sorry GM I thought you were talking about the lv 15 main quest fight! Either way, sleep and cure is still the way to go!

What server are you on? When the game starts up again I'd be happy to show you were to go to do all that if you haven't been to grid yet!
