ES4: Shivering Isles - Hands-On @ IGN

by Dhruin, 2007-02-07 10:05:48

IGN is the next site to offer a hands-on walkthrough of some of their Shivering Isles experiences.  It's a detailed three-page article and here's a sample of their experience:

We first came upon Jayred Ice-Veins, an archer with a plan. If we raided the nearby Gardens of Flesh and Bone, we could fashion bone arrows of the same aspect as the Guardian's, and therefore do more damage, somehow. To the Garden we headed, picked the lock on the front gate, and had a battle against some fierce skeletal guardians to procure the arrows. With the new ammunition in hand, we headed through Passwall again and found another villager who, after a sufficient amount of bribery, spilled that the Guardian was especially vulnerable to the tears of his mother, who allegedly visits the monster every midnight. Sure enough, she showed up right on time and wept beside her horrific child, and, luckily, dropped a soaked handkerchief. We darted in, snatched the handkerchief, and applied it as a poison to our sword. The ensuing battle with the guardian was over pretty quickly, and with the keys to Dementia and Mania in hand, we proceeded into the world of the Shivering Isles.
