I can't complete it no matter what I do everytime I try, I just end up dead by the time I get half way through. I only am able to get half way through.

    What do you mean are the monsters too tough?

    Giants are known to have a particularly weaker transformation during this RP for some odd reason.

    My husband had a really difficult time with this quest as well, I even tried for him and it was super hard to get by; the only thing I could figure is with the dungeon revamp, these RP quests weren't taken into consideration and are made more difficult due to a general dungeon difficulty increase without increasing the abilities of the RP characters.

    @SnowWar, unfortunately you will just need to keep trying, but it IS possible. Good luck!

    If you're lagging, the rock paper scissors combat is much harder to pull off.

    When I played this quest on my main it was back during my super laggy days (800-4000ms ping to California - yes, 4 seconds) and I didn't understand how anyone was able to fight until I saw a video of a lagless player and realised I was playing an entirely different game. The enemies moved so fast and the game just didn't register any inputs during lag spikes until it was too late.



    I'm on a better connection now (400ms, not great, just better) and I can actually respond in time to most enemy movements.

    So while it's possible that OP just needs to learn how to play, it's just as likely that there's another factor preventing them from using the appropriate countering skill in time... like the lag spikes that have been plaguing us for the past week, perhaps.

    That's a good point. If it is a part of the OP's problem they should at least denagle their PC (pretty much anyone more than 2-3 time zones from the servers benefit greatly from this).

    If you are new, getting to this quest and getting killed instantly with one hit making you revive at the statue and you are wounded, makes this not easy. You don't have soul stones, you don't have first aid, you don't have campfire, you don't have pets to heal you, etc. It isn't like you only get hit for 1 damage in this quest. From what I can tell, the dungeon revamp really did a number on a lot of RP quests; stuff I am going through now on new characters, was a lot easier in the past then it is now.

    I watched someone do the entire dungeon as a giant and only spamming smash.
    It took them 15-20 minutes to do.
    When i did it i didn't have a problem with it either.
    Just did the ol n2 counter, n2 smash, and throw in a few defends.
