    Another irritatingly specific challenge, this one. The Ability is Ranged Poison Strike - Poisonous Powder Trap does not work. The kills have to be due to the arrow, not the poison.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @SpirantCrayon22 Ugh, yeah... I remember seeing this challenge at least a couple times in the last few months. It's not always easy to literally make the kill with a poisoned arrow... sometimes you hit an enemy and take them down, but then the poison kills them. This challenge is pretty ridiculous... up there with killing enemies while ramming with a mount and assassination only when hanging from an open window.

    @Ubi-Keo

    I note you moved this. I thought about the category but the "player support" one includes "gameplay" and the nature of the situation is that players might go looking for support on this one as it's not obvious. So I am indeed attempting to help others by posting the requirements, it's less a discussion point, and more people look at the player support section as far as I can tell.

    Hi @SpirantCrayon22 apologies, I had moved the post as the challenge 'Plague Shot' is working as intended, however I have moved it back to the player support section as you intended this post to help others who may experience issues completing the challenge.

    @SpirantCrayon22 that's why you go hunt sheep 😂

    Sleipnir's challenge sucks so hard. I stayed in the same area so long trying for stuff to count that I not only finished all the others (save for Orlog) but I also got to avenge two players.

    @bielik01 @SpirantCrayon22 There’s also the go-to snake spot down the river from Glowecestrescire.

    @bielik01 Sheep count for the poison one?! Well, the enemies are not that much brighter than sheep, it wasn't too hard, just annoying and a little stupid that the poison itself doesn't actually work.

    @XBL_Laberbacke you can punch everyone unconscious and ride over them with the horse.

    Do you have some kind of secret superfist? Takes ages.

    @XBL_Laberbacke

    You could always drop the difficulty down so that enemies can easily be knocked out by simple punches. Personally, I find punching enemies on the highest difficulty while wearing no gear the most fun... it‘s the closest the game gets to being challenging, short of reseting all skill points, as if you’re in a survival mode.

    @XBL_Laberbacke you can equip something to your off hand, so you can deplete their HP faster, but you still won't kill them.

    Sleipnir: The only way this worked for me is to switch difficulty to "Saga", and then try to go for the herons. I need to use a real horse, no other animal is high enough, and crouch in the saddle for additional height. Wait for a heron to sit down on the ground. If they are in the air already, they'll be too high when you arrive. Once they're on the ground, try to speed the horse and then somehow try to estimate their trajectory to get them. Of course that seldomly works. So I senselessly rode around the herons in the swamps in Swartalfheim for a while to finish that challenge lol

    Plague Shot: I tried that go-to snake spot on the river near Glowecestre. The snakes got me the remaining kills for the predator challenge, but the miasma kills the other snakes too quickly for the plague shots. I raided bandit camps, and finally decided to go river raiding. River Rhine, Ferrieres with its many guards got me the remaining shots. Those guards are tougher than the snakes. Miasma takes forever and gives you enough time to place more poison arrows. I had to use regular shots in between to refill the adrenaline lol but it did work.

    @SpirantCrayon22 sheep are a great idea. Will try next time. I remember doing the light bow challenge with sheep since they die of 1 or 2 arrows from that bow. Lots of sheep in England.

    Sleipnir: Difficulty = Saga mode (didn't tested other ones)
    Grantebridgescire > Meldeburne > oustide of the Camp (North-East) :
    near the river there is a 'little kind of house' with 6 roosters
    and then
    some herons along the river : prioritize those who look at the bank of the river where you are > easier to get
    (pigs seems to no doing the job properly)

    @azullFR Awesome tip! Thank you. Other modes: regardless of settings, as soon as the level-setting is others than "off" nobody you hit with your horse will be impressed. They just show their health bar 😄
