[MOD] Tartarus EX (WIP) (7/29/13 update info)

    This post kind of sounds like it has a negative tone to it, but I want to assure you I had a lot of fun.

    Tried Tartarus tonight on my HCE beserker.

    It was a lot of fun...... for a bit. I had one really intense boss fight (http://www.twitch.tv/tieryal/c/1824556). It was awesome, that's exactly what I had expected from the mod. I had to pay complete attention to my position, and what was going it 100% of the time. My **** heart was racing.

    However, after that one fight, I found the rest of it to be relatively uneventful. Sure the mobs hit hard and it can spike your health, but clearing trash is still generally just as easy as it is in a normal mapworks. There is a LOT of trash mobs too (intentional I know), which is ok, but it simply isn't a challenge, so it became more of a hassle than fun. I was kinda let down and found myself wanting to skip all the trash. This wasn't helped by the fact that the bosses kinda felt few and far in between.

    Other Notes:
    -Also, I freaking ran into Vyrax A LOT. I think out of 12 bosses I saw him 4 times. Does he happen to have a higher spawn rate or am I just unlucky?
    -Guardian can be stunned from raze, other bosses can't be CC'ed like that.
    -When you get Aruk, he isn't a "real" boss in the game, so he doesn't drop any uniques.

    Not sure if you can change any of that or want to.

    Would it be possible to put out a modded PAK that literally just spawns bosses only? As long as it isn't insanely stupid or clustered where you get 3-4 bosses and die instantly. But I realize. MAN, I just wana **** pound on some bosses. **** trash mobs. I figured other people might want to do the same.

    Thanks for the fun time with the mod though :) +1, keep up the good work.

  • I tried it yesterday, its a really cool place, died a bunch of time even in the Lite version though.

    I have one question about the drops. I can find all the high level set pieces of armors there, like celestial and unearthly, right?

    Anyway thanks for the mod mate, its really fun and challenging.

    Where can I find this map? I'm using Synergies latest version and it's not showing up in mapworks, or in the merchant scroll purchases..

    I'm guessing this map hasn't been updated for GUTS yet and is currently not part of synergies
    shame though but synergies does have the derinkuyu or w/e it's spelled map now which has a similar function

    I assume this works when playing TL2 with other mods installed correct? I've placed it in the proper location, and rerolled numerous times and still can't find the map at any general vendor or the mapworks vendor.

    Hi, any way to run this fantastic mod in version 1.24?
  • Hello, I'm also looking for a fixed version, or a how-to for converting. I'd preciate it.

    PaulTM: are you using an alternate combat text mod? If it's so, could you please upload it to any server so i can download it? I'm asking because i don't have steam and i've been looking for this mod for some time.
    Thank you very much.

    I extract to PAKS file where install game, but i can't find Tartarus Extreme custom map in Mapworks. I already try to reroll game but still not work.
  • Hi everybody!

    You can find TARTARUS II on the workshop : http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=353767704&searchtext=
    If the link is wrong, just search it with the following filters :
    - Map
    - Bosses
    - Level

    Thank you so much! :D

    Hello again!

    Would there be a way to convert the newer versions of Tartarus as well? Tartarus II is with champions only, no bosses and has the same infinite map tileset.

    Could anyone who still has the v.5 Tartarus PAK. file convert it for GUTS?

    Thank you very much :)

    long overdue bump for good measure

    Anyone with the the latest tartarus converted for GUTS?
