Re: Defense strategy for a Mage?

What are the fights you're getting into where you're being forced into close combat? You shouldn't be doing that so much that your spells have a chance to fail. I think I had big problems when I did rush into a horde of skelletons down in Emayu Witch, but with dazzling flame / haste and dense nimbu...

Re: Defense strategy for a Mage?

Sure. Meditation and perception will help you regenerate mana, which will allow you to cast higher level spells and kill things more quickly. The engine didn't really change between Books II and III, so all of the helpful articles in the Book II forum (like this one ) still apply in Book III. Thank...

Defense strategy for a Mage?

Hi there, I started with Book III just now, and while I was a fighter in Book I and II I decided to start with a mage (Female Druidic Magick User) for the first time. I reached Level 9 now and mainly focussed on Perception (37) Intelligence (20) and Wisdom (17). The others aren't very high up to now...

Re: Getting Ambergris or Willow Bark in Late Game

I am done now with book 2 and startet with book 3 already. I turned around and went back to finalize the Secrets of Fathamurk first of all. I had the feeling that I found more Willow Bark and Ambergris there, but if you say the location doesn't matter it was maybe just luck. But what definately make...

Getting Ambergris or Willow Bark in Late Game

Hi there, just wondering a little bit, I am in a late game stage now (area east of Picaroon Island) and want to prepare with some Mana or Healing Potions. But it seems to be impossible to get Ambergris or Willowbark anywhere. I have a foraging skill of 10 and switch to two foraging rings before buil...

Re: If you achieve Destroyer, post here [spoilers]

The normal endfight was way to easy. I used an demon oil 3 (I had a few of them with Alchemy Skill > 15) on Gramuk and he died immediatly and turned into the Dirachnid. I still had the incinerator fuel (I thought I need it outside, but the Giants did all the hard work), so I used it on the Dirachnid...

Re: How much INT do I need to identify most items?

I also have a fighter with not too much Intelligence. For weapons or amor the lore spell works well. But I also find potions which are unknown very often. For these there is a nice workaround, if I find e.g. a "unkown" blue potion with two golden rings I just stack it with another Mana Potion III in...
