I did not have the blast sling beforehand. I did not yet realize you really needed to set up traps in advance.
It was not a pleasant fight. Took me several tries.
I later went back to try it again and it was easy once I knew what I was doing. But yes, its a game that demands you get all the weapons.
BEAT BELLOWBACK FIRST TRY WOOOOOOOO (not trying to be an ass, just feeling super happy and adrenaline-y, it helps a lot when you buy the blast sling beforehand and know the tricks to set up the wires and stuff beforehand)
The ones I've found so far have pretty much been on the way. And should probably take priority over basically any other side quest.
Are cauldrons part of quests or do you have to go out of your way to find them?
Yeah, the girls were sort of terrible to Matt in that one. That's something that lingers for a looooong while and I never liked that. The next one is pretty good as I remember it. You're almost to the point where I caught up to the series as it was releasing! (#8 Path of Daggers was the most recent one when I started.)
Book Six done. Seven arms under breasts, one arm under chest. The book really ticked me off, even for how insufferable the women can be, they were REALLY insufferable this book especially with how they treated Matt who, while yes he can be a prick, always had the best intentions for them and the girls always treat him like dirt. Not a lot was accomplished in the book in terms of plot though I'll give it credit, that ending with the Asha'man was easily one of the best and most memorable endings, Jesus Christ they were turning people into red mist!
Well onto Book 7!
Well I have only been tracking variations of arms under breasts. That's not mentioning the countless times of "the necklace between her breasts" or whatnot. Nevermind Nyaeve's braidpulls, how about how women constantly "sniff" their disapproval (I didn't know that was a thing) or someone screaming (especially Matt) "bloody ashes"!
Really? Only seven total by book 5? I swear it was more. Either he really starts hammering it in later or its just such a distinctive phrase it stands out.... but its defnitely been a fandom joke forever. Shame you haven't been also tracking Nynaeve's braid pulls.
ANd yeah, that was the volume with no Perrin. WHich I never cared for since he's one of my favorites.
Book Five...done! Again, three months, I need to get quicker! The story decided to focus on just two major plotlines, Rand and Nyaeve's. No Perrin or anything. I liked it alot, had a really nice climactic battle though some events did kidna happen out of nowhere. Bet you anything Morraine isn't dead. Arms under breast count: Seven! (Counting folded arms under bosom as well as folded their arms under their breasts!)
Book Four done. It took me...3 months? Geez, I'm getting slower. Which is weird because book four is my favorite so far.
It felt like the most well put together, I was engaged with all of the plot threads, especially Perrin's and it had a nice, climactic finale that was well set up and not another random Balzamon battle. The women are still infuriatingly annoying but that's par for the course.
Arm under breast count: Four
Onto book 5!
