Small eliot schrefer

Eliot Schrefer : author

Hello Spirit Animals (and their humans, if you’ve given them permission to read this),

 

I find Erdas pretty much the coolest place ever. I spent Wild Born debating which character was most like me (answer: Abeke, by a hair), then Hunted wondering how unexpected it was that I’d find a boar with such dignity, Blood Ties thinking how cool it would be to have a war elephant, Fire and Ice thinking about how even in fantasy worlds, family issues are still so important, and Against the Tide trying to predict the mole. (I got it wrong, btw.) I’m so excited to present Rise and Fall to you!

 

When I heard I got to write the second-to-last book, I was pumped, because in a series, all the most amazing plot stuff happens in that book (here’s looking at you, Harry Potter). And the events I get to write about in Rise and Fall didn’t disappoint. I hope you’ll agree.

 

The book also brought me to Nilo, which is my favorite continent in Erdas. The main reason is I’ve spent my last few years hanging out with and writing about great apes—bonobos and chimps and orangutans—and I find them totally fascinating. Imagine a creature who has emotions that are just as complex as yours, but who doesn’t try to hide them at all. (When they’re loving, they’re 100% loving, and when they’re angry, they’re 100% angry—one of the reasons Kovo is so scary!)

 

I’ve gotten to hang out with bonobo orphans in Congo, and orangutan babies in Indonesia. Here are some pics:

 

     

 

I’ve also been a big fan of the game (I’m Calvin Strifesight, with a penguin named Freya at my side), except that I can’t seem to make it past Drina. I find her deliciously evil, though, so it was with great pleasure that I brought her into Book 6.

 

Very excited to travel through Erdas with you.

 

Yours truly,

Eliot

You said you needed help for when fighting Drina? White ink, Mr. Schrefer.

Note: Equip yourself with Ninani's Swan, as you are deemed her champion. Also, equip yourself with Charge (as you have a penguin), Sticky Sap, Heal, and any Animal skill you want (since Penguin prison wasn't working for me, I used Penguin Blizzard).

 

1. Drina shoots poisoned arrows that are slow and easy to dodge.

2. Thankfully, her spirit animal is a spider (named Iskos) and Iskos has no poison, but he will shoot webs that will slow you down. During that time when you are on the bridge, attack Iskos. Try not to get stuck in the webs as you will need to dodge the arrows. Keep moving. Iskos has less health than Drina, so he can take six arrow shots before vanishing into passive state.

3. Once Iskos vanishes into passive state, Drina will be down for 16 seconds. During that time, use Attack and Animal skills. If necessary, use Sticky Sap, but I say it's a waste of time. DO NOT USE POTIONS AGAINST DRINA WHEN SHE HAS ISKOS OUT. POTIONS WILL JUST BE A WASTE OF TIME, AS SHE IS IMMUNE TO POTIONS.

4. After 16 seconds, she will disappear and big red circles will start appearing EVERYWHERE. Stay away from these, as the webs that form are meant for Drina and Iskos to appear. If you get caught, Drina will appear with Iskos and heal herself, while Iskos scratches the health out of you.

5. This is a scenario that I've faced. If you are on the courtyard thing, if you see Drina in the middle of the circle with a G on it, she is surrounded by webs that will not allow you in. There are a circle of webs on the outside of the circle, so be careful. Iskos will be launching slowing webs while Drina is firing her annoying arrows. Take down Iskos, then whack Drina with your skills.

 

Skills Drina will use: Possibly Fox Frenzy, as she will be immune to any attack you give her when she turns purple with an odd thing around her and she will be faster then you.

 

Hoped it helped!

Oh my god, those are some cute little apes! Did you know that the reason Bonobo and Chimps are different is because a few hundred years ago, they got stuck on separate sides of the Congo river, and the Bonobo got stuck on a side with more food and less predators, while the Chimps got stuck on the side with more predators and less food, so while Bonobos had to share things to survive, Chimps needed to fight with each other over things.

 

Ok, I'm done spewing ape info you probably already knew.

 

And your right about Harry Potter, The Half blood Prince was definitely my favorite.

 

Drina has got to be one of my favorite Conquerors, as strange as that may sound. :)

awesome! and to defeat drina, DON'T ATTACK UNTIL SHE STOPS MOVING. when your trapped between nets, shoot arrows at the spider, then once the spider is(temporarily)gone, regenerate your health(with a skill) then attack drina with your most powerful skill. try to stun her to attack her a bit longer. repeat till drina is defeated and drops behing haliwar's bronze eagle talisman.

Great! I can't wait to read Rise and Fall!

 

@catdragon2898 and cloudcloud170

Thanks for your advice. I am also having trouble with Drina.

I am already using Ninani's marble swan and charge for skill 1, but I still can't defeat her. I even tried using another computer.

I know that I'm supposed to attack the spider since Drina would be immune to arrows when I'm trapped. After I sort of got rid of the spider and attack Drina with charge and sticky sap, then Drina (some how she has a very long life) starts throwing nets at me and I run away from her then its all over again. After a few times, my hand just gets tired and I would have to abandon quest.

Could you suggest some tips?

 

P.S. Apparently there isn't any help page here like 39 clues, so I have to pose questions on threads all over the place. I hope that other users (and the author, of course) wouldn't mind me taking up some screen space here.

Wow, we finally get to meet Drina in the books! Yay games and books meet!

 

That's cool that you play the game too! There are a few guides to defeating her here on the forums, as for me, I remember running a lot. Pressed 1, 2, and 3 a lot for attck, heal, and slow potion. Focus on the spider then get Drina,etc. just be sure to run and heal up so your Staying alive! Staying alive! Good luck!
