Nimue said:Just to play the Devil's advocate here: that might be a spoiled girl's normal reaction to a conversation that isn't going the way she wants. It's pretty much clear from the start of the conversation what she has in mind, and Geralt bringing up serious topics probably bores her. Mind you, I'm not saying you're wrong, just that there are other possible interpretations.Nimue said:Well it didn't seemed like the amulet is reacting on Triss for instance Adda grab it and droped it on the floor . Why would she do it if it's reacting on Triss ? Plus in first conversation one of two options is saying something like : The necklese with inclusion you should be wearing it , the curse my be still active ( I don't excatly remember the words but it was something like that ) , later Adda said :" we no longer wish to speak with you " . So she was hiding something about the necklese .
As they said, there's light from the candles. If you really want a Cat, though, there's a fireplace in the crypt; if you have ingredients on you, you can meditate for an hour and make anything you want.I thought Quen vs. the Striga was a lot of fun -- she exhausts herself trying to get you, while you just stand there and smile at her. But there are lots of ways of handling it.Winstar said:Lame thing is.. that I don´t have any Cat potion left and it sooo dark in the crypt. Is it possible to fight with the striga in darkness? If sparing her life, just run around with torch?
It's up to you -- you can choose to kill her, or you can choose to break the curse. If you decide to break the curse, there are several different ways you can go about it, some of which are a little more fun than just circling the sarcophagus all night.One of the things I considered when deciding whether to kill or cure was the past -- what did Geralt choose to do the last time Adda was a striga? I figured he'd probably do the same thing again, but that's just my take on it -- part of the beauty of this game is that you can think about it in whatever way makes sense to you.pepez said:O.k I am in the room and I am going to face Striga.Now do I have to kill her or just running around the sarcofagus??I think that the point is to kill her right?? or not?
It's not her fault she's a striga. I decided to save, because witchers aren't just about slaying monsters, they do try to lift the curse when possible. However I must say that I really dislike that spoiled brat. Killing her might even be more worth it (striga potion) on the other hand the witcher's code binds me to at least try and save her.gamewidow said:well if he went with his last experience with her, i'd say he'd be more inclined to kill her. a) she slashed his throat and he very nearly died and b) clearly it was a waste of his time as she's a striga once again ;D
If you'd spent the first seven years of your life in a coma and the next seven years as a striga, you might not be too civilized, either. *smile* Nobody actually raised Adda -- I'm surprised she can even talk.Hamenaglar said:However I must say that I really dislike that spoiled brat.
b) clearly it was a waste of his time as she's a striga once againworse.... she has business with the ones who stole the Witchers secrets, all in all criminals. She is beyond hope ;D Who knows if she falls into relapse once again.... the 3rd time then.gamewidow said:well if he went with his last experience with her, i'd say he'd be more inclined to kill her. a) she slashed his throat and he very nearly died and b) clearly it was a waste of his time as she's a striga once again ;D
I think this is the main point. Getting in good with the king by saving his daughter also helps the faction you choose. And, you probably get a better reward? I found the easist way to spare her was to camp at the fireplace in front of the room with her sarcaphogous and prepare potions, etc. until 2 hours before dawn. I built up my Quen skill (the shield one), created the Endurance and Vitality boost potions to use. Enter room to cut scene. Cast Quen and simply waited it out til dawn. Had to keep casting quen of course and she still did damage to me now and then so took apropriate measures to heal. Even had to knock her on her arse a couple of times to give me time to cast quen again.Tobariah said:As for the -decision-, it was no contest at all .. I'd choose to lift the curse every time, MYSELF, and as I was choosing to play Geralt as a "true..ly complex .. Hero" to the hilt (as -I- understand it) .. so of COURSE I saved her. Politically it's the right thing to do, as it gets you in good with the King and helps whichever faction you sided with (right? on my one playthrough so far, I went with the Elves, of course).
