Apart from big mines and backpacks, Legifer will also blow crystals to pieces. So will a wand of lightning, striking was already mentioned, Oily Orpiv will work as well, if the crystal is next to a wall or other target. Same goes for fireballs. A big mine is not necessary, a small one will do the trick. None of the other wands or items have an effect as far as I can tell, apart from the pickaxe of course. Silva won't do it.

For kicking, LStr doesn't seem to do much (but you still need a certain minimum, I guess.) Boots, and strong ones at that, are necessary. I finally managed to kick the shard with 1000 LStr and valpurium boots of kicking +5.

Also, this is what UT4 looked like in the end:


Summary:
Things that break crystals:
- Mines
- Big mines
- Backpacks full of Gunpowder
- Wand of Lightning
- Wand of Striking
- Wand of Fireballs
- Oily Orpiv
- Legifer
- Pickaxe
- Kicking, if your boots are strong enough

Edit - did I really type backpax?

this is awesome - question - could you kick it down with lower lStr and higher enchanted boots? I guess the bigger question is which has a stronger effect on kicking, enchantment or lstr.

I don't think this was ever definitively decided.

Also, I'm more and more beginning to feel like this thread should be moved to the spoily section...

Silva quake does not work. standing beside and praying to Legifer works. Pick axe meteroic steel will mine all except green light crystal. Mithril pickaxe mines all colour if you happen to kill a shopkeeper and back track or get a lucky find. Adamantium pick axe works like a hot damn if loricatus is feeling generous. I've never tried it but if you could get Vladimir the Giant mutant carnivorous bunny to follow you out of GC then he would ransack the place too. Damn now i might have to play Ivan again and see if I can get Vladimir to follow me into Attnam to smash up the cathedral. Anyone ever done this? does he follow you out of GC? I've certainly had him go head to head with Elpuri thats a lot of fun. helps if he dies and gets resurrected for the huge stats boosts (End)

I've always had trouble getting Vlad to follow me.

You can't be invisible. He has no infravision. I suppose you could feed him a bunch of mushrooms

he goes down to zero HP and has to heal which boosts endurance. you can get him up over 4000 HP (as much as elprui)

I've pitted Vlad against Elpuri and Vlad always gets destroyed. He hadn't died previously though.

I've had Vlad plus Ivan kill Elpuri once but never Vlad alone. A pack of baby mammoths works too if you tenderize them a bit first.
