Finished off my final legacy last night, what a great game. 76 hours including idle time.
Sheriff was definitely the hardest of the bunch. I expected it to be easy with the great lounge skill bonuses and field hospital’s +50 health. Yu-Wen, the Incompetent musician, was up against a group who took over a large factory, and set themselves up with snipers. I left my followers at home this time around. Most of them died whenever I took them out against hostile enclaves.
I wasn’t expecting the factory to be surrounded by giant fences, hordes and freaks.
Rushing into the building ramboing wasn’t an option. I sneaked up and called in an artillery strike to kill off a sniper. Fired back at the other, and… did not go well. Immediately attacked by hordes of zombies. Two screamers, a bloater, and a feral as well. Thank god I still had firecrackers from the last plague heart assault, and napalm from a survivor group I assisted. It still wasn’t easy though. The feral had Yu-Wen down to a sliver of health, and I was barely able to crawl away to cover while still being shot at by the remaining sniper.
That radio call for medical assistance was a lifesaver. Got the sniper down. Yu-Wen patiently took out the rest of them stealthily, one at a time whenever they went on patrol alone. Almost got gunned down by Shame, their leader, surprising me as I killed another, but a quick Gunslinger perk saved the day.
Totally felt like I earned all the “Your sheriff friend saved us, here’s some goodies as thanks” in the next game I played as a warlord. Surprisingly the final enemies in that quest line were survivors from my game as sheriff.
