Red Alert is fine, so long as you don't kill anything.

how would you kill the named enemies that you arnt able to kite into a lethal trap?
I suppose lots of summon scrolls.

Umm... please no spoilers.

Try it. Let others speculate and work it out themselves.

How can you comment on this thread and not give anything away?

And how do you complete the Quest without killing anything, you need to kill certain monsters to complete?

Don't comment.

Post your completion.

It can be done, see above.

Let others work it out for themselves.

I have not yet received a verified winner for this challenge.

It may be a little harder than some folk initially thought. Not enough incentive?

C'mon Thelanis.

Hey this is a really cool contest, great idea! Not on Thelanis but looking forward to seeing some entries.

Just curious, has the OP done this?

im not on the server, and not making a clone of an old character of mine. But Ive little doubt a 1/1/5 rogue ftr wizard with good gear could easily achieve this challenge. Ive had no few quests where nearly all kills where misadventure with that build before I capped him as a 1/4/15 including fun ones like kobold assault.

The how is rather simple, but since you dont want spoilers, and the paticular style used is typically flamed on the forums as being a flower sniffer style, well GL thelanians Im sure one smart wizard with a swashbucklers since of flair will figure it out soon.

You don't have to level up a character to meet this challenge. Just to show it can be done, I completed the quest using a fresh off the boat level 4. I just gave her some healing pots and a couple other common pieces of gear. Here is the screen shot

Notice that I added a new wrinkle by getting ransack without breaking any boxes.

Flower sniffer? I suppose. Try to have fun; it's not all about grinding.

I've no idea whatsoever how you do it, but: awesomesauce.

It's funny, you start off asking for a ninja/ghost but in reality the only way to complete as you ask is a 1rog/xx who charms or agros and kites through traps, which is hardly ninja/ghost material.

This is for a single tome (+2 dex) as I did not do the traps/conquest stuff.

Great job. Never done this on a cleric myself. 22 min is not flower sniffing. Hope you had fun doing it with a twist, as I believe you have done this particular quest a few times already.

Tome sent, with regards.

There are several ways to do this. I always used stealth at least part of the time, but obviously others had different ideas. That's why I love this game.
