Loving the remake, but now I've hit what seems like a bug and can't move forward in the game! I'm playing as a Wizard, and have done everything possible to defeat the Air Elemental, but nothing works.

If I throw dirt into the funnel, absolutely nothing happens. Seriously, nada. I've even tried throwing dirt AND sand, and nothing happens.

When I cast Levitate so that the character can throw sand inside the funnel, he gets stuck there and can't do anything.

If I try to walk inside the funnel (as the walkthrough on this site says to do) it just spins the character around because he isn't strong enough. (Being a Wizard and all.)

Help?

Is your throwing stat high enough to aim at the center of the funnel with accuracy?

Also, have you tried doing this in both plaza screens to see if the Levitate issue only occurs in one screen but not the other?

When you say "gets stuck" what do you mean exactly? Does the game freeze up? Or can you still access your inventory items GUI?

Hi,

Thanks so much for your response.

Taking your questions from the top:

I'm playing as a Wizard, so I don't have throwing skills. In my vast experience playing Quest for Glory games, the Wizard is not supposed to need throwing capabilities.

When I say I get stuck when I Levitate, what I mean is that while he's up there, I don't have access to my inventory, which is what I would need in order to throw dirt into the funnel.

How on earth do other Wizards do this, in this game? What am I missing? (I should clarify that in the distant past, I finished the EGA version of this game in all the character types...I am not ignorant. This looks to me like a bug.)

Oh and yes--I have tried all these actions, including Levitate, in both screens. Thanks so much again!

Ah right. Well, the official Wizard method (without throwing skill) means that you need to build up your strength stat high enough to be able to force your way into the center of the funnel.

Buy a bunch of vigor pills and train with Uhura... to focus on raising strength.

That is very helpful, thank you!! Do you know how strong he needs to be for it to work?

Uh, no... you don't need to force your way into the center of the Air Elemental as a wizard.

You have to levitate and wait until the Air Elemental passes under you (in a reasonable approximation) and then drop the dirt into the elemental. No throwing skill necessary.

If I recall correctly, sand doesn't work in this version of the game.
