Hexen II is kicking my ass......

Hey all,

I just got Hexen II working again on my PC and I'm attempting to get through the first act on hard. Not the highest difficulty but the one right below it and my Necromancer is in no way able to defend himself.

I'm thinking of starting over again from scratch with a tougher character like the Crusader or Warrior.

hah. I don't remember much about the difficulty, but I remember when I first played the game, at one point I couldn't figure out what I had to do next and endlessly traversed between all the maps..........I ended up never finishing it at the time.

The main difference between Hexen and Hexen II is difficulty. Since the AI in first Hexen isn't so smart it goes for massive swarms at highest difficulty. Cleric clears that up in no time with no mana problems. In Hexen II enemies do not tend to swarm, but they are deadlier and have a smarter AI (evade the attacks, crouch, etc) and you are in big trouble with mana. Hexen II is a challenge :)

Well,in Hexen, I think with fighter against a few ice wendigos in first hub was the largest challenge...

I found navigation the most difficult in Hexen II. Going over the same steps over and over to find out you've missed one corner somewhere. :?

I never bought Heretic (although I've played the shareware version) and I can't imagine D'Sparil being that hard. I mean, he's just one guy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but to me he just sounds like the equivalent to a Spider Mastermind.

Korax doesn't always attack you directly, but will instead send swarms of Ettin and Maulotaur creatures at you. It's hard to fight the final boss when you're being flanked by other creatures.

Oh, and BTW: the wraiths, while awesome, were really cheap :p

Well battle with D'Sparil looks like this (hardest difficulty ofcourse):

Area is huge. He rides a serpent with lots of health that shoots one fireball. When you get it to some % of health it shoots 3 or 5 at once. Disciples are spawned in the process. You kill the serpent, D'Sparil gets off and shoots you (he uses the tome power from time to time). More Disciples are spawned in the process. In this huge area he has teleport locations which are far far away. As you take his health down he teleports insanely fast. Most of the time he didn't even finished teleporting to one location, he goes to teleport to another. Insane ammount of Disciples are shooting you, while you barely can land an attack on him (because of teleportations). I went out of ammo and get killed by uber swarm of disciples.

Not only am I playing as the weakest character but there is absolutely NO ammunition.

I have been attempting to avoid fighting but when I'm in a bind I just have to unlease magic missles and get out of there. I don't even try using the sythe.....it's automatic death when dealing with archers and golems.

That's nasty. Just read about it online. Though surely if you horde powerups like I do, he couldn't be too hard... Right? :|

Woah! The more I look into this, the more I think that I'm totally off my rocker. D'Sparil sounds pretty tough. :?

Oh yeah. On the hardest difficulty i turned the god mode on and ragequited a bit later because i couldn't get a single shot at him.

Ha! This is so funny to read! While i agree that at the beginning of you play the bosses are hard, when you play this game many times they are nothing and you actually make fun of them by trying to beat them lets say without taking damage or as quick as possible.

I agree with most everything I've read here. Hexen II is hard as hell with the Necromancer at the beginning of the game, and D'sparil was possibly the most challenging boss in the entire series. You just have to keep chipping away at him, and eventually, your persistence will be rewarded. I still remember the first time I beat D'sparil on the hardest difficulty setting---I lost it. I was so elated, I practically started speaking in tongues.

Ah, the sweet memories of my antisocial adolescence.
