    Potions are also found in loot and in supply bundles, so this is probably your best bet to have enough in the offline game to do Grannus Colossus the "easy" way.

    Beli - Today at 9:19 AM -
    Samael's loc. Loc: (149.7, 49.1, -191.3) use your compass

    Thank you @Beli I will use Loctrack and find that spot!

    ___

    Original Question -

    Path of love - Brookside - Where is Samuel's house? I am Playing the offline mode. This is for the Ring quest that has to be completed before continuing on the Love quest.

    First, I want to thank everyone who already has helped me by providing a location to look in, I must be not understanding something as I cannot find the house in the given areas.

    Locations to look in:
    - Left of the Ruined Castle by the headless horseman in the plains area - I cannot find it around there.
    - NE of the map - This answer is correct. I took it as more in the wilderness and not in the city. My Bad.
    - Skip looking and continue on the path of love. This one made me laugh. hehe

    Total time looking 2.5 hours of real life time.

    Good point. It's very hard to find anything in Brookside, between the size and the fog. When it was new in QA and I wanted to get out via the rift (weight computation was borked, so I couldn't just recall), it took me two hours to find the rift.

    If you want to add Samuel’s Farm location, it is 153.5, 48.8, -186.0

    This is right at the entrance to the small graveyard.

    Tried to follow your guide to the Grannus Colossus on QA today but found a few issues (not sure if bugs):

    [​IMG]

    That's all the buffs I have on me, nothing that would in any way slow me down, and of course I have a potion of wolf speed.

    I have tried 4 times running through the 2 open gates, but the second one closes too soon. This is with a potion of wolf speed AND using a Level 40 Dash.

    Did they possibly change this? Or I need some other speed enhancement? I have Focus/Health/STR/INT/DEX skills all are at 80.

    Also, once the gate has closed, I assume the gate is on a timer? Just re-entering the area does not open it. It seems to be on a timer? Possibly 10 or 15 minutes.

    @Sannio is it not possible for players to get through the second gate without fighting anymore? See previous comment.

    No changes have been made to that area/situation as far as I know.

    The guide is proving very useful - many thanks.

    I have however become a bit stuck at the Sequanna Collosus. How do I ask a question within a Spoiler so I don't erm spoil anything for anyone else ?

    I wasn't able to make it through the gate when I did my run through back in March, regardless of what buffs I had available.

    The gate is not on a timer. You have to kill all of the barbarians to trigger it to open. One run it took me a half hour (solo) to clear that area, and it popped open immediately. The next run I helped with we had a full group and it was maybe 5 minutes, gate popped open right away.

    Ok thanks. I guess I just won’t be able to do the lenses for a long long time...

    The gates can close early if you get too close to them, then you have to use the ivy on the doors to get in.

    I like to try and pull the mobs away from the gate, take them out and then run through there.

    Mac has a video showing how to run through there, but he has a fleet flute combined with other buffs to run that fast.

    Are you possibly wearing something that is lowering your movement speed? I go in cloth armor all the time.

    I go back there every month or so just to chill in the backyard area killing barbarians. With only Dash, I usually pass through the locking gates area past the beach long before they close. The first area (second gates) I often barely squeak by. I also use Lv 80 Dash, but I'm not sure I've needed it as much as just the potion.

    I also have -0.5 move speed on my shroud, I think that's from high Courage? I may try removing my shroud in the future just to optimize my move speed during the gate runs.

    I am wearing Augmented Bronze Chainmail. None of the armor pieces states any type of movement decreases. I then have a backpack and a necklace with + Focus and Strength, a ring of focus and a Bronze Halberd.

    1 potion of Wolf Speed and even a level 40 dash will not get you through the first 2 gates at all. I now have tried 7 times. Even tried Bezerker stance.

    So to be able to do this quest, you then need either a Group or several Items or gear with speed enhancements on them.

    The secret to doing this is:
    • Enter the area and kill as many enemies as you can until you die.
    • Go out of the gate and resurrect at the ankh.
    • Use the vines to hop the wall.
    • Repeat until you have killed all the enemies (multiple waves) and the other gate opens.
    Hint: use the terrain to minimize how many can attack you at once.

    Beli said it was (149.7, 49.1, -191.3) and that is where I found it. Interesting we have two different numbers. Or is the difference so small it is the same spot?

    It's about a 5 meter square difference, so not much.

    Chain is heavy armor, so you don't get the move speed increase from the light tree. I use leather and still can't get through.
