They are hard!! My answer was to skip that whole section and come back later when I was much higher level. However, one tip if I remember correctly: did you release the people from captivity to help you? I don't remember the specifics unfortunately. There is a good FAQ on gamefaqs.

Favorite iOS games so far: Dungeon Raid, TWEWY, The Bard's Tale, Swordigo, Aralon, Horn

Thank God for well-placed saves...

I think I might try that, and if it doesn't work, bag my game and grind in the wilderness for a bit...

Thank you so much for answering!

I give up.

Apologies for the double post...

Can someone confirm that the Wandering Trow who sells Treasure Maps exists in this version?

I've been trying to run into him for, well, a while now, and have yet to see him...

TIA!

Edit: Found him! Closing in on the last tower!

DBC

I give up.
