Second City Adventures

From Hobowars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Second City Adventure set is the first of the major Adventures and take place in Second City. The story is a rough parody of "The Lord of the Rings". The adventures require some level of thinking to complete a couple of the tasks, but for the most part, they are fairly easy to navigate. You are sometimes required to use any area(s) that exist prior to Second City during the course of the adventures.

Adventure Guide

It has been determined that the wiki will NOT contain a descriptive adventure guide. If you have an questions regarding what you need to do during a specific adventure day, please use the Adventure Talk board.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most frequently asked questions by those having trouble completing the adventures.

I cannot defeat xxxxxx on Day zz??

Probably the most asked question. 9 times out of 10, the problem is you do not have enough battle stats. Most NPC fights during the adventures require you to have some battle stats, and fights will become harder as the adventures progress. So:

  • If you are not getting any hits in during the fight:
    • You need more speed. Either train speed at the uni or get one of the Status Effects that give a boost to your speed stat. Getting a ring (and higher respect levels) will also give you a boost.
  • If you are not doing any or very little damage
    • You need more attack. Either train power at the uni, get one of the Status Effects (see link above) to give you a power boost, or get a weapon that does more damage.
  • If you are getting the crap pummeled out of you when you take hits
    • You need more defense. Train strength, get a strength boosting effect, or a better armor.

Note: The adventures were initially setup to allow anyone to progress through with minimal battle stats. Recent changes have introduced more difficult opponents deeper into the adventure days. So while you might have only needed a dozen battle stats with no special effects "back in the day", that is no longer an option.

Where do I need to go to complete my task?

  • If you get lost and cannot figure out what you need to do or where you need to go, simply backtrack to the last place you was at. If you need to, backtrack all the way to the opening task of the day (ringing of the payphone) for hints and clues about what you are suppose to do. If you get are so lost you cannot figure out what you need, search the Adventure Talk Message Board for an answer, or if you cannot find it there, make a new thread to ask it.

Adventure Days

The adventure set was originally released to HoboWars only. It was added to HoboWars2 after a few years using the same format. Later on, it was slightly altered to combine the original days 1 and 2 together into one mission as well as other minor changes and added to the Facebook version while the originals remained for HoboWars and HoboWars2. Finally, in beginning of 2013, Cube updated HoboWars to use the newest updates and made adjustments individually to those whose transition mid-season was impacted. During the summer of 2013, Cube updated the codebase of HoboWars2 and now all game versions use the same adventure setup.

There 19 days to this adventure set. When the adventure set originally came out, there was 20, but after years of updates and changes to the setup, two days were merged together shortening the adventure set.

Note: To any of the "old" players on HoboWars or HoboWars2 that still have not completed this adventure set - if you are stuck on a day, you may need your adventure day reset with all of the changes done over the years. Ask first on the adventure board to make sure the procedure you are using is correct and if staff will help in getting you reset if necessary.
