Werewolf in shipwreck (TOSC)
Hi all.. Im a bit desperate..
I was fighting the Wolfwere/werewolves in the Balduran Shipwreck.. and all went fine, untill I came to the point of fighting the Greater Wolfwere (Karoug)...
I CANT harm him.. and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s seems immortal.. I once fled outside and then battled with him forever, using ALL my wands 'n stuff. but I only got him 'Barely injured...'
This ♥♥♥♥es me off immensly..
I do have the necklace and the Amulet that helps fighting against wolves.. but.. It wont help..
I dont think one can even leave the island without defeating Karoug..
Anybody knows what to do here???

Hmm, im a cavalier , so i just pouned his ♥♥♥♥ with my swords. Before i went in there i casted all my protection spells on my group. Then i go in there and casted all my monster summoning spells to help fight with me.So its duable, just keep trying different things . good luck

Yeah.. OK
I used many swords, magic.. Magic damage weapons..... everything..
Just now I stunned him with a wand (dont remember the name) and started hitting him with everything I got.. But I couldnt get further than 'barely injured'..
Now, I read he regenerates health, and it seems to happen way too fast, becouse I just CANT get him Injured past slightly..
I also read you can only hit him with +3 weapons, which I somehow dont have.. (only +2's..)
I think Ive tried everything by now..
Might it be possible to leave the island without comleting this quest??
The other Wolves were pretty easy, but as soon mr Karoug is left, I can take however long I want, but I CANT get him down...
And off course, I saved when arriving on the island.....

The Sword of Balduraan is a chest in the same room as Karoug. I used it along with haste and mages casting spells to take him down. It took a could reloads, but it is entirely possible.

Also the dagger that helps to kill him. I think the mage in the house near the ship has it.

I remember what i did now , I alone with my cav fought him , waited till my group finished the other wolfes off . Then we all ganged banged him till he was dead.

Werebane , thats the dagger. Find it and kill that wolf son a b .

There are only 3 weapons that I know of that can hurt Karoug:

The Burning Earth (AKA Flame Tongue), which is found at the bottom floor of Durlag's Tower
Werebane +4 which is found on Balduran's ship just before Karoug
and Balduran's Sword which is in either the chest or the desk behind Karoug himself.

Unfortunately those weapons are longswords, daggers, and b@stard swords respectively. If you've got anyone who's capable of using them, equip those and haste those people. For everything else, you're going to have to use magic to kill him.

A good strategy I use is to cast Greater Malison + Doom together at him to lower Karoug's saving throws, then use a Wand of Paralysis on him. With the spells and wands put together, he'll have a +9 penalty on his saving throws and when he's stunned, attacks from those 3 weapons will automatically hit.

Once he's stunned, I usually have two mages unleash a barrage of magic missiles, clerics using Wands of the Heavens, and anyone else who can't do anything else throwing exploding potions. Pause the game and order all of those things to happen at once and you've got a fried greater wolfwere. Send in the guys with the 3 swords if he happens to survive the assault and continue pounding him with all you've got, making sure that wands and spells and such strike at the same time to counter his massive regeneration rate.

im having an issue with this quest as well, but i killed karoug easy as hell even without the werebane gear (just beat him to death with vercona +2, greywolfs sword) but now that him and all the other werewolfs are dead, everone in the village reconizes that i killed him.... just not kaishas..... when i talk to her i only have the "havent killed him yet" option.... sadly i cant reload a old save.... anyone know if i can use cheats to teleport to the ship to leave? (origional had this issue as well sometimes, fixed it by using cheats to teleport over and talk to the scripted kaishas to leave)

Well... I finally did it :)
I got Imoen to take the sword of Balduran, gave it to my main character who also used the Dagger (the one that works against wolves) and stunned Karoug..
Then I killed all the others, and made sure Karoug remained stunned.
Then I started hitting him with all I got.. In the end the Sword made the difference :D

@ Hikoh... when I went to talk to the village leader woman, I could say I killed them all.
Strange that you cant.. All I know is that you should talk to the leader woman, not the man..
Good luck!

i fixed mine, its a glitch that happened on the original. i just had to turn on debug mode, respawn him and kill him again. Alls well and he's dead..... along with the rest of that back stabbing ♥♥♥♥ ant hive of flee biters. =3

If you cast the Slow spell on him, it'll halt his regeneration a bit, too. Just may take a while since he has magic resistance and fairly good saves. Greater Malison may help, too. Good luck!
