So, I finally got around to trying AVWW out as it's been part of my "pile of shame" for a while now. I've seen the controls. I've managed to find and equip a few enchants, including a light one that allows me to see in dark places. I (eventually) worked out that the green spot on the minimap was a crafting source that I could obtain by hitting with a spell. Yes, that took a while to work out what on earth was going on. I managed to work out how to use wood platforms to get places. I swam through a pool of acid to get something called a Consciousness Shard. And then I met a red slime.
Now the red slime is well telegraphed via numerous signposts as being dangerous, and that you can't take it on with a fire spell, but all I have is a fire spell. I've explored everywhere else I can reach, including every door I seem to be able to reach and I still only have one fire spell.
I can't fight it, I can't go around it, I've been everywhere else, I have one lump of granite and while I admit I have no idea how to do crafting, I can only assume that it's not sufficient to make anything.
What am I supposed to do? This game is a tad too obtuse. Not difficult (or at least not yet), just difficult to understand.
