Re: Basilisk Update 2016

I recently had a dream that the new game came out but I was too busy to play it :(

Re: my current thief level 14 nefarious rouge

You may as well keep raising Dex. If you're not going for high MP or HP regen, it's probably your best use of stat points. Or maybe Strength if you want to wear heavier armor. The formula for lock pick success percent is skill * 3 + dex / 3 + 50 - lock quality * 10, and the highest level lock is 10....

Re: Quicksave Error

The shadowmirk_l1.ent file in your saved game is corrupted. If you remove it, you should be able to load your game with no negative side effects.

Re: Quicksave Error

Bad news, I'm afraid - all of the files in your saved game are full of zeroes, and no data. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing this same symptom once in the past, but certainly it's a rare bug. Sorry I can't recover anything for you.

Re: Quicksave Error

It sounds like you lost data because of the power failure. If you want to post your save directory, though, I'll see if I can do anything to make it work. I'm not sure where the saved games go in the GOG version - try searching your computer for the eschalon.cfg file. Then zip up that directory, upl...

Great to hear the RPG is coming along. I can't wait to play it! Maybe you'll need testers soon?

Re: A few thoughts from my latest play through

Well, at least it's open source. As soon as you release the Book I source, I'll take a look at fixing it ;)

Re: A few thoughts from my latest play through

For what it's worth, I also had some minor white squares issues on Linux in my last play through. I think I saw it mainly in the Hive Queen's lair.

Re: First time finished as a mage

That's what I do - 6 to start, actually, if you put 5 in then pick your class. I don't even get foraging, figuring I can learn Create Food before I run out of freely available food. But again, I'm sacrificing an easier early game for a stronger late-game character.

Re: The optimizer's guide to a mage/healer

The broad outline of the stats and skills is applicable, but the specific trainers and equipment available in Book II are different.

Re: First time finished as a mage

Put all your stat points into Perception except when you need them for Intelligence/Wisdom to learn higher-level spells. I personally don't bother with Unarmed and just wait until I have Lock Melt. Depends on whether you want to have an easier time starting out or a stronger character at the end of ...

A few thoughts from my latest play through

It turns out you can imbue unidentified items. I hoped that it might auto-identify them for you when you did, but no such luck. I've long considered Druidic the best axiom, since it gets you to faster HP/MP regeneration rates sooner and the game takes place mostly outside. This play, I noticed that ...

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

For my latest character, I tried to max out armor. I believe that by the end of the game, I had 98% chance to hit everything in the game, and they had a 2% chance to hit me, including the Dirachnid and Spire Guards. In theory I could have got a few extra armor points, too, if I could have found the ...
