Orb of Undeath Missing

#1 Post by ProphetSHSU »

Long story short I've cleared all the orc prides but I only have three orbs...

I'm trying to figure out how to get the orb of undeath so I can proceed. I've figured out how to pull open the console. I cracked open my save folder and managed to delete the rak-shor pride levels to I can re-clear them a few times but the orb never drops. I think perhaps my character has been flagged in some way indicating I've already killed the grand necromancer there who is supposed to drop the orb so he's not spawning again? So the question is:

What can I do to get the orb?

re there some commands I can run that will allow the orb carrier to respawn so I can kill him again and get the drop? Is there some command I can run in the console to just add that specific orb to my inventory? Some other magic? Any help is welcome! Thanks in advance!

Please say my name on the ingame chat, if I'm around I can help, if not, try a bit later to grab me :)

To be clear, you did kill Rak'Shor but he didnt drop any orb ?
Also, are you using any addons? this is the second time in a short while I see an orb not generating and this is certainly not normal.

Yessir! That's what I did. As far as I'm aware anyway...

I cleared all the levels of the Rak Shur pride (3 I believe). It was the final pride I cleared. I cleared the pride that has the slime stairway in it second. Found the stairway, placed two orbs (and fought the guardians) then ported out to get the other two orbs. Fought through the two prides, went back to the slime tunnel to discover one orb missing.

Went back to RakShur and all the levels were cleared but no orb laying around.

I did some reading and discovered how to delete the .teal file from my save profile to cause the level to respawn. I hoped I could kill him again and get the orb - but I don't think he spawned.

So then I poked around in the lua console and found what APPEARS to be a count of how many of each type animal I have killed. I tried setting that back to 0 for the necromancer and regenerating all of the levels of RakShur but again he did not spawn :/

I have been trying to figure out how the console interacts with inventory to see if I can spawn the orb but so far not a ton of luck with my trial/erroring.

I'll happily try and ping you tonight (though I'm not totally sure how to do that) and thank in advance for whatever help I get!

As for add-ons I am running a few officials and one 'unofficial' - here's a screencap of the add-ons and the related versions.

The other thing I've since noticed is that I am running with a Prodigy called 'Meteroic Crash' - whenever it goes off the explosion radius seems to overlay walls with burn patches of ground and lets me (and other NPCs) walk through what is usually a wall. a few turns later when the burn marks fade the wall re-appears. If I killed something in that space that was a wall there is sometimes a pile of items unreachable inside of the wall. I wonder if the orb was stuck in a wall in that way and I didn't notice... Since I've 'regenerated' the level so many times I can't find out either :(

If you have access to the console, can't you just ask the Create Item debug menu option to create the Orb of Undeath?

I did scroll through the list a time or two but didn't see the orb on there... Is it listed under something I might not be seeing? I'll take any hints I can get!

Looks like quest items aren't in that list, so put this in the lua console:
game.player:addObject(game.player.INVEN_INVEN, mod.class.Object:loadList("/data/general/objects/objects.lua").ORB_UNDEATH:clone())

Thanks HousePet for the help. So far that command hasn't worked, but I'll keep poking at it to see if there's some way to make it function - there's a lot of good lua hints in there for me! Not sure if maybe that fact that I'm on a mac makes the objects.lua path a little different or what. I aim to find out!

Thanks again

Does it error or just not do anything? It should add an unidentified orb to your inventory.
I didn't check to see if it would be blocked by the 'only generate once' thing that happens with creatures.
