Help on Level 6 (D3)

Post by JohnnnY » Mon May 24, 2004 6:00 pm

Hi, I'm the new member here( Heres comes the bashing =/ ). Anyways, I just started doing single player for the first time in d3 because PXO is down. I'm having a hard time in level 6. I found the first two items, which are the collectors and and builders item. Now, I gotta find the high priest item key because the door won't let me get in without it, but I do not know where it is. Any help on finding it? Thanks..

It's been a long time since someone asked for help finding the priest icon.

Have you tried using the automap function (press tab key) or using the guidebot to help you find something? If you can't find the room where the icon is in, face the locked door, turn around 180 degrees go straight (well, you do need to go around a column.) Once in the room, there are visual clues on the floor and ceiling, so turn on your headlight.

oooohhhhhkaayyyyyy...

This is a little involved. .. first. Have you placed the first 2 icons in their appropraite alcoves? To do so, use the "use" key. cycle thru they items list.

The high priest icon is thru the door in that little area. There is a "path" you need to follow or trace to disable the shield-wall at the back fo the chamber. The Path is revealed by 2 ways: 1) Arrow on the cieling that you can see highlighted with the headlights on, or 2) follow the blood dropplets on the floor. :)

*hint* paths starts off by going right off the middle row thatyou come in on.

Thanks for the help. = ) bad thng now is that I had 160 sheilds and 0 Energy with only Lasers lol. Ok, now for the 2nd chamber, I see a bunch of arrows on the walls, but I gotta fly in a certain way I guess.

correct. The arrows on the ceiling. You need to face up and slide in the direction in the way you need to go.

Like I said, there is the blood on the floor too, but its a bit harder to see.

Hmm, by blood stains, do you mean those pink marks on the floor? I got a little confused with the arrow parts because of the directions of them heh.

You just need to stare at the ceiling for a bit. I think navigating with the ceiling arrows is easier than staring down at the little blood droplets. Maybe the Automap would also help to reveal the path, since it simplifies the geometry, so you can more easily tell which ceiling tiles are arrows and which aren't?

If you have 0 energy, you can get a fill up. There is a guidebot option to locate energy for you.

Just turn on the headlight and look at the celing, thats what makes the arrows stand out.

Ok I know about the arrows on the ceiling. But what are they trying to say? Fly in that direction? I noticed that they go in a quarter-pipe motion all 3 arrows, but they face a different direction each one.

When you're looking at the ceiling arrows, you'll see one that is lighter than the others. Fly in the direction of that arrow. The easiest way is to point your nose at the ceiling and slide in the direction of the arrows. Turning off auto-leveling, if you haven't already, will prevent your ship from automatically pointing back down again. As you follow the arrows, you'll come to one that points in two different directions, left and right. You'll have to choose either direction and follow it; you'll come back to the same square later, and then you take the opposite direction. I'm not sure which direction is right, so just pick one; if it doesn't work, start over and choose the opposite direction.
