Re: Warhammer Quest coming to iPhone and iPad!


Just double tap on the default name of your Warrior and then you can erase and change it. Took me awhile to figure that out.

Re: Warhammer Quest coming to iPhone and iPad!


I finally decided to get an iPad 2 and the Warhammer Quest game! I shall soon be giving it some serious play testing.

Here is a Review of the game I found which includes several nice images from the game: ]Warhammer Quest Review at Softpedia

It seems the rules of the game are coming, though a bit late. That should help newcomers to get into the game I think. emoticon

And I still belive that the new mystery box from GW will be the WHQ - and this iOS WHQ is only to increase the selling score to the board game.

I hope you are right.

I find it very interesting that the Deathblow rule in the new Warhammer Quest game (for the iPad and iPhone) is worded differently than the original. Here it is:

quote:

Sometimes a warrior will kill an enemy with a single ferocious blow called a Deathblow. The warrior gains a rush of adrenaline when this happens, causing them to automatically attack an enemy adjacent to their previous target. This additional attack may also be a Deathblow.



Some differences I noticed follow, which are only observations on my part and not any sort of argument concerning the original rules of the game:

1. There is no clear condition on killing a monster that was previously wounded or not.

2. This rule specifies that the enemy must be adjacent to the one that was killed. Whereas the original rule just says "adjacent", leaving a slight bit of uncertainty (could have been interpreted as meaining adjacent to the Warrior for instance).

3. The "rush of adrenaline" idea seems to me to take away the possible interpretation that only certain types of weapons can result in a Deathblow.

I may find some of my observations slightly off as I play further, but these are some of my first impressions.

Thats a better wordering than in WHQ - keeping in mind that Gav Thorpe said that the monster can be on reduced wounds to make a deathblow. But i dunno why they stick to the "single blow". It makes a lot of confusion. Most gamers stick literally to the rules. If deathblow should work after each kill they could just write like that: After your warrior kills a monsters he gains a rush of adrenaline when this happens...
And i like the explain to make another auto attack not just slice through all monsters like we just to think about deathblow emoticon

Re: Warhammer Quest coming to iPhone and iPad!


With how promising this new game is, I am beginning to wonder whether we should have a new forum added to this board so that people can discuss different aspects of the game.

I got all the DLC for it so far.

Though I know you can switch out the Warriors from one Adventure to the next, I prefer not to do so as soon as I can swap for the party composition I want.

That being said, my third party -- after swapping -- is Elf Waywatcher, Trollslayer, Archmage, and Warrior Priest. I am finding this a very delitefull combination. I am learning NOT to leave healthy Warriors adjacent to the Warrior Priest since the Ring of Jade is used automatically in this at the end of every turn -- whether anyone needs healing or not emoticon .

Then, in the midst of posting this, my Warrior Priest got hit by a wagon in a settlement and lost 2 movement on top of losing 1 (from loss of a toe) during his travels. So, he is at 1 movement for the next adventure! This could be interesting...

EDIT: Oops! Something happened in traveling to an adventure and leaving the game and coming back. All the movement penalties and other "next Adventure" effects were somehow removed. So, I did not get to play with the 1 movement yet...


EDIT 2: Well, my first Warrior died! My level 3 Trollslayer had just slain a Troll, after being saved by my Elf applying provisions to him. Then, end of the turn, the Warrior Priest's Ring of Jade killed the Trollslayer! I am only playing Hardcore difficulty for now, since that is the only difficulty where your Warriors can truly die.

I got a little overconfident perhaps, while going on a level 4 adventure, and let the Warriors get a little spread -- not being close enough together to minimize incoming attacks. I lost a level 5 Elf Waywatcher and a level 4 Warrior Priest to a room full of orcs and goblins! The Archmage and Trollslayer (both level 4) cleaned up the mess. Then, I recruited two level 1 replacements.

I do recommend a separate forum just for the iOS! If it's like my Facebook Page, you're going to get an influx of people wanting to talk about the new iOS Warhammer Quest!

See, I don't know you very well yet. I thought you might object. emoticon

I thought it would be good myself, but thought it important to have some support for it.

I can see all sorts of potential discussions...

I am even thinking of running a game with a private group based on the iOS version.

Not that i think it's a GOOD thing! emoticon But it will be inevitable that people will want to discuss the iOS. Might as well separate - or at some point it might get confusing as to which one people are referring to.
