Desert Treasure Guide Re-write

Recommended Posts

lol, I see your point. I do point out that magic is the best way but maybe not as clearly as I should. I'll fix that and I think that I'll put all the less effective ways of killing the bosses in like an index just in case someone doesn't like the way I give right off the bat.

 

Thanks again :s

Thanks again <_<

I think it's even more messed up now, i have another suggestion of organizing the guide. Thise table of content should explain a bit what i am thinking:

 

1: Getting started

2: The Diamond of Shadow

3: The Diamond of Ice

4: The Diamond of Shadow

5: The diamond of Blood

6: The pyramid of Azzanadra.

7: Short quest section

 

The diamond sections should contain all of the ways to kill the demon of that element, all possible inventories and stuff like that. The short quest-section should include more text then the usual short-sections, and perhaps a few inportant pictures like the map of the ice path and the map of the Mort Myre swamp around Desseous' Coffin, but not asll those inventory picture and all those not-that-necessary pictures.

 

Be it's mate or give it hate. :aware:

lol.

 

1) i'll look at the layout again

 

2) the index's are 3 different parts with extra info. one part is about each boss, another part is the short version of the quest, and the last is just extra ways to kill the bosses and other suggested stuff. stuff that isn't vital to the guide.

I agree with Morty, you should make a "Fast Quest Walkthrough" section too, because that was really a lot to read and it could be that people goes to a other fansite to get less info instead of a major info about everything :P

You should have more space at the start at the "Items Needed and Where to get them"

 

Instead it should have space like this

Do you know what I mean? (sorry for just saying the bad stuff, I'm new! ;))

 

(Could you tell me how to make a qoute? I try the Wrap in qoute tags but when I try to put anything it, it just get normal text again)

thanks,

 

theres a quote button right beside the reply button at the end of each post. that means you quote the whole post that that person made there. you can also copy and paste something in and then add

[/quote.] (without the periods) around it like this

 

how to make a quote[/quote.] (but without the periods)

 

or you can highlight all the words you want to quote with your mouse and press the quote button, it's right below the fonts button. put your mouse over each option and it will tell you what each one does.

Just thought I should add that dessous is weak against earth spells, and it appears that damis was weak against water spells, I am not sure of the damis one but am sure of the dessous one...

i actually just put to use claws or any high level spell against dessous cause i had heard from different sources that air or earth worked, and i know that claws works.

 

i don't know if any spells are effective against damis but water if effective against fareed. i don't that they would make two guys week to the same spell.

 

if you can get anyone to confirm that dessous is weak to earth spells than ill add it.

 

how do u know he is vale? you used melee.

Well, since this guide takes a long time coming together, I have started on a trial to see if I can make this guide into something a bit more organized. I will publish it here once I have finished it, but that will take some time. I blogged it, so progress should be visible there.

Sure: http://runescape.salmoneus.net/forums/blog...?showentry=5656

 

[Edit] I just found a vital mistake in the guide: Damis WILL NOT follow you outside the multi combat area to the 2 blue marked safe spots you mention.

 

[EDIT 2]

Damis' Layer, Safe Spots and Multi Combat Areas. NOTICE! Damis may not be able to leave the multi combat area, use this technique at your own risk!!! note: if Damis won't leave the multi combat area than you may be able to attack him from just outside of the multi area, he will run away and you will have to re enter the multi combat area to get him to attack you again but it may work

You can't put this in a guide: You either help people complete a quest with accurate information or you make a guide with all the rumours you can find. If you opt for the last method you can't call it a guide, but rather should call it a guessing game advisory.

Thanks, the guide is pretty much forgotten now so I don't know if there's any point putting these pics in. It's nice that you took them but there are already pics of each of these places in the guide anyways. But thanks

This guide has definitely not been forgotten, I just haven't been able to read it over first and decide on what to do. As you can probably see, a lot of other "complete" guides haven't been accepted yet, but I'm working on checking them out and moving them to the accepted forum. However, there's only one of me and a lot more of you ("you" as in members, not "you" as in Njl :P ) so it might take awhile.

 

Regarding your guide: I think the detail in it is amazing, however the sheer length of it is... perhaps a bit disheartening for most readers. :o Some of the sections seem unnecessary, such as the "Extra notes" - guides should not use abbreviations for things like "each", and many of the other things are self explanatory and most people who have managed to start the quest would already know. For things like the sceptre and the suggested strategies, they should be mentioned along with the boss in the main guide. The section for other methods of killing the bosses isn't entirely needed, just explain the main ways to kill them, as you did in the main guide. The descriptions of each boss isn't exactly needed either; general descriptions belong in the main part of the guide along with the boss battle information. I also think that certain parts of the guide are a bit "too" thorough - like the required items section. The items should simply be listed, with links to the item database entry to make it easy to find info on it.

 

In short, I think that although the guide is detailed, it might be *too* detailed for many people who might just want the facts and not all of the extra "clutter". Other than that, excellent guide! :P
