Re: Surviving the Dragon?

If you put every single point in constitution and use every item with hp bonuses it's possible to reach over 700hp at lvl30 and survive the dragon's breath. However there's nothing you can do after that because Malkur will intervene directly (you basically skip the dialog with the dragon) and the en...

Re: most powerful weapon you've ever seen (or had)

With the nerf of +skill bonuses I don't consider them the best option for the most powerful weapon because +3 skill adds at best +1dmg/ToHit. For me the best option would be a mithril weapon with +4magic/elemental damage (from shop) which can be enchanted further with +3dmg and +3ToHit.

Jack of all trades challenge

The description of this challenge says you have to raise 20 skills to lvl 5. There are 14 skills that can be raised using trainers. There are 6 other skills which can be learned from books and then raised to lv5 using bonuses from items - does this count for the achievement or do you have to raise a...

Re: [Ranger] - Critical chance and nefarious attack

I started as a caster to get a scroll at the beginning and have a little more money (to be able to train foraging as much as possible). But really the starting class doesn't matter. Also since I started with 15INT (the requirement for learning Portal later) I figured being able to learn some element...

Re: [Ranger] - Critical chance and nefarious attack

I don't like to be dependent on feats; investing heavily in bow/dex allows playing with power mode always activated and keeping the tohit high at any range. As for optimal builds I still believe the pure archer offers the best damage/armor overall while having good versatility using trained skills a...

[Ranger] - Critical chance and nefarious attack

I was planning to use the same build as I used in the book 1 (ranger with pretty much maxed bow/dex) however I was a little disappointed by the various nerfs to critical chance and nefarious attack. The critical chance was increasing by 1% for each skill point invested in your weapon (I had 97% crit...

Ranger build

Nefarious therish ranger with 30dexterity, 15concentration at creation. The idea is to put (nearly) every skill point in bows and (nearly) all attribute points into dex (you might want to invest 2skill points in alchemy for the best enchantments; 2skill points in elemental magic and 5 points into in...
