I dug up all the pits I could find, but I'm 1 key short. Any suggestions?

I can't find it. Hint, please.

I have enjoyed playing this game, but I'm at the final battle and cannot win it. Does anybody have some advice? What skills are most effective?

I had this, too. Also on Windows 10.

I tried deleting and reloading the game, but that didn't help. Neither did rebooting my laptop. PC, not Mac.

Is anybody else having trouble with the sound? After playing a while, the sound goes haywire with loud screeching and the voice tracks sounding like a scratched record: skipping & repeating. I'm playing on a PC with Windows 10.

Never mind. As usual, right after I post a question I find the solution. In case anybody else has the same problem, highlight below.
Take the chisel from beside the fire in the smithy. Knock the rust off it on the edge of the bricks. Use it and the hammer you already have to get the piece of the witch you need.

I have everything except for a 2nd piece of metal. I think I'm supposed to use a piece of the witch weathervane over the smithy, but I can't get it. I can't find the solution in the strategy guide. Please help.

It's in the elf town, Delamere.

The guide says Miles' house is in the southeast part of Delamere, but I can't find him in any house. Can anybody help?

The swamp you need is called the Silverspring Wetlands. It's the small wooded area on the west coast of the small island south of the one where the city of Halaina is.

I can't find the rope, either. I've looked in every scene past the dining hall, but nothing. Help, please.

Okay, I found it. If anybody needs a hint, highlight below.

Go back to the library and untie the rope from the podium.
I can't spot it. Any hints?

Oops, this is a bonus level - no puzzle piece. Sorry.

I had to start the game over because I was stuck with nobody left to fight in order to get any gold - or the chance to get any.

However, the second time through I did put together a set of equipment and it made all the difference. Thanks.

I tried it and it works! Thanks, gparadox, this is great!

Thanks, I hadn't thought of putting together any of the sets. It'll take a while to gather enough gold for that, but I'll work on it.

I'm guessing that you mean the spider mages. Those are the ones with the big splotchy purple body and the ruff of green hair behind their heads.

They're incredibly lucky, but not particularly strong. As long as you're the same level or higher, you should be able to beat them by taking all the healing combinations you can. Even if it means passing up the chance to hit them with a skull attack or letting them hit you with one, you should do everything you can to keep them from healing.

They don't have any equipment that lets them heal, so as long as you can outlast them, you'll win.

I've tried several times, but he sure packs a wallop. I'm at level 15 and can't get any higher it seems, at least for this stage of the game.

Any tips on how to beat him?

In case anybody else runs into this problem, I solved it by rebooting my computer.

I was nearly at level 50 when I got the message that my progress file had become corrupted and did I want to start a new game? That was bad enough, but I had more than 2600 gold coins, which I had purchased, and they're all gone!! That's real money down the drain!

How can I back up the progress file so this doesn't happen again?

I sent Grandma in to top off the water and all 5000+ buckets that I had stored disappeared! (I pump when I buy unlimited energy so I don't have to waste energy pumping water at other times.)

I have Window 8 on my computer. Any suggestions?

Follow up: Rebooting my computer solved this problem. Tech 101, right?
