Greetings all

I was asked by my guild to build an original arena style quest... I think its original.

Qualkek's Cube: NW-DTV6JQVPH

Arena type combat quest with a little story.
Average duration: 16-18 mins
Very heavy on combat
Starts in PE at an old rain water barrel

You find an artifact and decide to find out what it does.... Then the adventure begins.

    Update: Rechecked grammer issues , Added lighting and some new affects, Changed some affects so they made more sense, and Included Qualkek's rant at the end. Side 3 encounter has been slightly reworked and side 6 is a bit more challenging.

    Update: Completely redesigned side 4 (The party level) mage suns were replaced with effects that were easier to see and the party was placed a little closer together to make the encounter a little tougher.

    Hello all

    Update: Grammar checks continue, but thankfully there isn't a lot of dialog in this one. :)

    Greetings

    Update: Allowed most of the critters on all sides of the cube to roam a bit so they're not just target practice for all you Rangers out there.

    Hey Eldarth,

    Didn't know of a bug no, but I discovered how to properly place one after and hour or so of cursing and pulling my hair out :). That was for another foundry "A2-On the Road" that's what made me go back and remove them. Qualkek's Cube has always been my testing grounds for new effects and such because it was designed for the hacker and slasher in us all, the effects and story are just frosting in there. Although I do think it has a cute story. :)

    Thanks for the advise.

    Hi Hellshot, I tried to play your quest but got stuck for some weird reason on side 4. I found a few small typos on the way there, though.

    -In the first quest objective "Shiney" should be "shiny"
    -when responding to my Qualkek's first dialogue "Whats going on here?" should be "What's going on here?"

    I got stuck on side 4. When I tried to touch the cube to summon the guardians I got the normal interaction but the guardians didn't appear. The quest objective still instructed me to touch the cube but the cube was not interactable. The quest path was leading me to the cube and it appeared on the map. Not sure if I had a weird glitch or if the old cube didn't despawn to reveal the new one to summon the guardians?

    I finished it this time. Side 5 is really neat looking it would be nice if all of them were that visually interesting. The only other quick fix I saw was that on side 6 "Dog's" in the objective should be "Dogs" since it is a plural and not a possessive.

    Greetings everyone

    I just wanted to say that I updated side 4 so that it's more in line with side 5s otherworldly appearance.

    Update: It is no longer possible to trigger the Guardian encounters before the primary threats are dealt with, so there won't be additional encounter stacking which may prove to make it too difficult. Resolved some minor costume issues on monsters.

    Thanks for your Interest.

    It is quite possible you were simply standing on the wrong side of the cube. The six sides are on different sides of the cube after all. :)
