Does anyone know how to solve the puzzle of the three balls in the Shark Archipelago? Several posts have stated to just click randomly, but that is not working for me so far. I know there has to be a logical solution.

Thanks!

Can someone please tell me the locations of the shaman masks? I only have 4 including the worship island one. I must have missed one somewhere. Thanks so much.

Jazz,

Sorry, I hadn't realized the last reference to the FOW command had been so far back in the comments. Go to:

the Totem Tribe folder: Totem Tribe\data\cfg\gamevisual.cfg.xml and right click the file. Choose "Edit" on the menu. Go down to about the middle of the page and you'll see a line that looks like this: <fow_dense_color>FF000000</fow_dense_color>

Change the letters in the middle of the line from FF000000 to CCCCCCCC.

Hope this makes sense. I'm basing the instructions on my computer, which may vary slightly from whatever you have.

Spoiler for Mist Island: finding thunder rune

To find the rune go all the way west. It is in between to western light devices. You have to head east though towards the center. If you have found everything else it will be the last chunk of black in the middle. It is in there. It took me and hour to figure it out and that was using other peoples help.

It wont let me charge more then one. Even after the first is done. The crystals are the same color as the comet and I have tried breaking them with fire,frost,and lighting.
Nothing is doing the job.

The bettles are pretty fast,so I would use mud towers for long range.Actually I built a few mixed towers.For the lighting runes,

near the starting point there's one.Near the pedestal to the North-that's another one-go down and at the middle of the south stretch near the pedestal there's also another one.Finally go straight and up ahead,near where the small rock path starts,there's the last one,partially hidden by the clouds.I almost missed it.

@Cloverangel317 RE: %77

All items that can be found in your treasure chest as well as their locations are listed in the FAQ section. The items do NOT count towards your percentage. You need to find ALL the small gems in order to get to %100

Reply

@copper50

Just click on the word 'spoiler' and the box will open showing you the contained text.

Reply

@Amy

DEFEATING THE OCTO/SQUID ALIEN:

I would suggest following the tips on beating the shades as a set up. You will also want to build a lot of towers so that they can battle off the smaller enemies while your troops are fighting in the 'boss' cavern.

Once the 'boss' statue is defeated and the 'boss' alien appears, walk-throughs are opened up in the crystal structure. Send your scout walking around to find all the hidden chanbers and pockets holding crystals that look like the ones protecting the alien. Click each one to destroy them and once you have found and destroyed them all the ones around the alien get demolished too.

Your troops will now have much more success getting damage through to the 'boss' alien.

If you get %100 of the gems and then complete the tasks on the moon you will be given two additional items that will help you with the final level. Guro will let you know when to use one of them and the other will already be in effect.

FIGHTING SHADES:

No matter what level you are and you encounter a 'shade' the easiest and fastest way to defeat them is troops.

Shamans, hunters and archers are best against any enemy since they don't need direct contact. The further away they can stand the less damage they take over a short period of time. Also make sure you have built a few witch doctor shacks so they can help replenish your army's life points.

If there is an area where you know you will be encountering them you can build a few towers ahead of time and I would suggest upgrading them to arrow towers.

Make sure you build a workshop and smithy and research all available upgrades for weapons and armor.

Reply

GEMS:

Count the gems as you pick them up since the number per island is 21. Only Volcano Island has 20 (or so I have read). Keep track and mark your figures down in case there was a part of the island that was inaccessible on the first pass.

Collecting gems after you have completed all tasks on the island is tricky since there is the likelyhood that you have built something on one and you will have to destroy your buildings in order to find them.

If you do not have version 1.02 you will not be able to find %100 of gems, you will be stuck at %99. When you start up your game and get to the screen where you can enter a name for the player, look at the lower-left corner, the version number will be stated.

GENERAL TIPS:

Be sure you destroy all enemy buildings and blockades, complete all tasks for island dwellers, read and look carefully around all guidestones, check back to islands that you could not complete on the first pass to gather up what was missed.

Check for outer land masses since they can contain gems, totems and other items. If you spot a destroyed building on the edge of an outer land mass then build a tower there. It will take longer since your workers can't get to it but it is possible and the likelyhood of there being something for you is greater.

GOING BACK TO PICK UP MISSED ITEMS:

Once you have finished Shark Archelapego and can send your scouts swimming you will be able to go back to previous islands and clear away the black in order to reach items on outer isles.
OR
You need to open all of the chests on Witch Island in order to get the Spehre of Clarity. Then go back to an island that has a 'globe', click on it to activate it and it will clear away the black from an area you cannot get to otherwise.

STUCK AT 'X'%:

Items do NOT count toward the percentage of completion of rainbow road. ALL small gems must be found in order to get %100.

Reply

@meg RE:I am missing 2 things in my treasure chest

You cannot get the top-right item until you have found %100 of the gems. Items do not count toward the percentage of completion of rainbow road. Once at %100 you will be given access to the moon above the rainbow which is where you will find that last object. All items and their locations are listed in the FAQ section.

Thx sabu99,btw nana49,there's a post somewhere and a link which shows where those ice shards are,or you can either

spray paint it,using an editing program(paint probably?)found in the Totem Tribe directory,usually the C drive.Go to:My Computer/C://Program Files/______(Enkord Games? Depends on where you saved your files)/Totem Tribe/data...One folder is named 'item' Click on it and you'll find most of the items.You can also spray paint them,but remember to save a copy if you've made a mistake.Save the edited picture at the same location.Do not 'Save as'

I have a question about the END:

I finished Inside the Comet without sacrificing the scouts into the mouths. I had every shaman mask, every building, every treasure item, including the thing from the Moon that gives you extra people, and the clarified tear of heaven crystal.

I didn't have to use the Fog of War cheat to find all the gems, instead I kept a tick list of every gem as I found them. This saved a lot of time searching for stuff.

My question is this:
The last screen told me I found 440 out of 440 gems, and completed 123 out of 123 quests. However, it also said I only explored 74% of the world.
Does the 26% represent those areas I didn't bother to clear of black fog because I already had all items?
Or are there some extra secret areas?
Anyway, I'm still disappointed that the ending wasn't very exciting. Still, it's a great game.

Reply

oke i'm completly done with this game :(
stuck on 96% gems and did all the help (painting the gem, taking away the black....
replay it for 3 times still cant get the 100%

KING SHADE RUINS OF DREAMSHORE:

You need to send your troops out to defeat the 4 groupings of smaller shades on the island. Once the largest one on each island has been defeated a black dot/orb will appear, click on it to put it in your inventory. Once you have all 4 go to the main island where your building are and place the black things in each of the brown stone figures. This will activate the pathway to the centre island with King Shade on it. Place your attack flag near any of the brown stones and your troops will transport over.

EDIT for Crystal

The one* on the right is the market.The one below is the temple.It's sort of like the idols,and you can charge magic,BUT you can only charge one at a time.There will not be any divination skill by the way,for clearing the fog.
Some people say you should build more temples on the last level is cuz you can use more skills at a time.
The downside is that it's time consuming,especially skills like Battle Furry or Shield.
