Need some tips for thralls in the well of skelos

So my wife made a wager that if I could finish the game without killing anything she’d consider playing with me. We agreed that not completing the journey step “slay” would qualify. I’ve managed to get all pieces for the keystone by having a thrall fight on my behalf while not following me. I can’t quite seem to get a thrall to the last boss of the well of skelos due to lava. Any tips?

If u do not play on single any friendly human that will join u in volcano can be ur “thrall”, so ask in chat…
If u play on single, try using gas orbs to see if u can kill npcs with gas without getting the slay journey step… Btw for volcano boss i think u wont need a thrall… Get a good stamina build and just run around till all minions spawn… Then king dies of exaustion, without hitting him… Not sure the last tip is still valid as i have more than 9 months to try it, but worths the try

This story is hilarious!
If you are coming from the obelisk, descend to the well of skelos by taking the route on the right. Until you reach the well / dungeon itself, you should be able to bring your thrall securely by not having it follow you but continually placing it on safe spots on the ground before / behind you.
After that, in the dungeon, you will not be allowed to place anything. From here on you can rely on the new commands perhaps: “Move there”, maybe “return”. Fill its inventory with high level food and have some healing arrows ready. Good luck!

I totally respect you for trying this. I tried it myself, a long time ago. I didn’t get past Darfaristan before my inner barbarian took over.

So many people are complaining about the lava and companions. The last time I did the Well some months ago, so don´t know how this has changed, but then running fast at the dangerous locations did work. Recently I´ve experimented with the “move” -command, and liked it . Still risky if the AI bugs out , but normally this works. Farmed several Erii, Kisthis and Daicas (this week) with my thrall- companion. If you pass by lava, just don´t stop and then “move to” at the next secure spot.

By the way: No killing challenge, nice!

For the record, I’m currently playing on official pve. Would prefer not to rely on other players to get the work done. All of these are great suggestions. I think the way to go is gonna be using the new commands. I’ll have the thrall stop before I get to lava and call them once I’ve gotten way past it. Failing that, maybe running fast or having a spare to place might work. If I can make it to the boss without a thrall I’ll try the outlasting him trick. I’m eager to take another stab at this. Thanks for the tips!

Let me know which server, i will hop in there and if u pass me an armour, some water, a stack of food and a weapon we can do it today… I think i will be over 35 in a couple of hours…

There have been some updates to pathing and thralls since I did this video, At the time I was able to get my thrall all the way through the dungeon to the end without losing too much thrall HP to lava. It was possible then and should be possible now. The hardest part for me then was actually getting my thrall to the well of skelos without losing it to lava. Barring any wild changes to pathing what you are asking about certainly can be done. This video is from an official server on PS4

darfaristan!!! roflmao

just tested , u cannot place a follower in there and u cannot either “rescue” one ( i took a second armour and weapon with me in case u can do it) , as u can rescue one only in owned land… also the trick i suggested does not work , the minions no longer disappear and the boss wont spawn a new wave if u have not clear the 1st… so not valid anymore… also inside volcano u need to kill 1 person (the one that opens the gate before the final jump to enter the inner volcano halls)… u can only risk taking a thrall with u , or try if u do not get slay with orbs and use the gas (and whenever needed the demon fire orbs , as i am not sure that the minions can take the negative effects -as gas dmg, sunder bleed etc). U can try em on single player 1st by creating a new game and with admin mode u can instantly go there to check (or spawn some orbs and kill any npc with those). and if nothing else works , always remember that i am willing to help out if u need to

Otro consejo sería si tu seguidor no tiene mucha vitalidad sería crearle una armadura pesada con bonificacion de vitalidad o si tiene mucha pero carece de supervivencia pues colocarle una que le suban sus 9 puntos su regeneración no se verá afectada con alimentos de supervivencia
