sidewalk trouble

Jul 08, 2009
I noticed that the sidewalks get smaller on the streets with harder monsters. Shouldn't it be the other way around. And Marleybone has no sidewalks! Sometimes I get sucked in to fights and have to flee which emptys my entire stock of mana. Can someone tell me why and/or fix it.

I appreciate your dilemma, however there are no sidewalks on rooftops.

On rooftops, the edges are not the safest, but the middle of the roof is where you need to be. Try running down the middle of the roof to avoid prowling cats and other creatures.

Getting past these types of creatures is all about timing. Keep as far from them as possible and watch their running patterns before you dart out onto the rooftop.

You can do it, it just takes practice.

I hate to admit this Merle Ambrose is telling me to got to Nightside and Marla Stinger is telling me to go Sunken City. Sunken City has sidewalks but sidewalks are not safe! How do you explain that?

If you notice the monster guys are usually spaced out pretty evenly. If I can't run down the middle I just run kinda behind one of them. This takes more time because they run at a different pace than our characters but it helps in some areas like newgate prison where there isn't really a middle you just have to run through.

Well I always run INTO the monsters if I walk behind them. Some times they are slower and I have to keep on stopping or too fast to keep up. If they are fast, the monster BEHIND me gets me into the fight. Oh and raymon620, Sunken City is so hard. I run out of health from fights with monsters in like 5 steps.

Not really. Its not as bad as people make it out to be. Walk in the middle and not on the sides. Its safer in the middle. Timing is very important.

Thanks, Kieran
