I was watching Mr_Zadok on Twitch doing an Ultima Underworld 2 play through and he encountered a hostile spectre at the lake where the acid worms are in the Britannia sewers. I have played the game through countless times and have never encountered the spectre. Has anyone experienced this before? If so, is there an even trigger?
Note: I'm not referring to the ghosts or haunt in the sewers. It was the transparent mage model with spellcasting and poison.
I'm not sure what "transparent mage model" you are referring to. The only transparent monsters I remember are ghosts, and maybe that ice golem in the ice world.
Which lake? Are you referring to the lake on lv. 4 of the sewers (http://www.usecode.org/ultima/uw2/uw2msewer4.html
), or the lake on lv. 5 of the sewers (https://www.usecode.org/ultima/uw2/uw2msewer5.html
AFAIK, there are no ghosts in any section of lv. 4 of the sewers. There are two ghosts in the bottom-left section of lv. 5 of the sewers, guarding the Green emerald, and a couple of other items there if I remember.
If you remember correctly, could you point to which video and what hour/minute you saw this spectre? (https://www.twitch.tv/search?term=mr_zadok%20ultima%20underworld%20II
I think this link should take you to the timestamp where he encountered it.
If not, its his Ultima Underworld II: Part 3 video, 1 hour and 20 seconds in. He is swimming towards the island in the lake on Lvl 4.
