Well, if you find a better shield... I have a Tower Shield that provides +4 Armor Rating right now. I defense of the game, I imagine that adventuring for real with a shield would be a serious pain in the ass, right? I mean, think what it would be like going through a heavy forest or narrow dungeon w...

Unfortunately I found this cave early on and killed the Bandit or whatever he was, outside of the entrance. Now (I SO wish we could have a map notes option) I am trying to find it again. Is it located in the Central Tangletree Forest area correct? I'm ripping my hair out trying to remember where th...

Hooray. ;)

I'd like to see all the automation GSV3MiaC suggested, with the possible exception of not auto-removing a weapon/shield when I'm in the middle of a fight.

Thanks, I did figure it out, but the Orge strength potion was "unidentified" until I took it to town, then all became clear. Now for the Giants! OK, maybe you can spoil me on that one: how in heaven's name do I get to the Giants? I have no idea where to go. The Blackwater map doesn't have a road/br...

I'm now in the tower trying to puzzle out the "give me strength" "heal me" chests. That one's not terribly hard, but if you can't figure it out: Place items that relate to the chest descriptions in each chest. I don't think it was a coincidence that other rooms on that level provided me with a Heal...

Re: Different armor, same stats?

Because having different icons/names for basically the same items doesn't make sense in my opinion. Why not? Such items are different in appearance, at least, and the variety gives the game world more depth. The fewer items there are, the more often you're going to find exactly the same thing in lo...

I'm not certain, but I think this is intended, the spell gives you a quick look and nothing else. I would say that it makes the utility of this spell fairly low in most cases. It's been helpful in a few dungeons so far. That's possible, but I think it's a poor decision, if so. The idea between the ...

There should be mouse wheel support already for the skill list in the Character Editor, and your Spell Journal. I know it's not "complete" support, but it does work on two things you mentioned. I would very much like it if scrollwheel support was expanded, in particular so that I could scroll the n...

Nothern Crakamir Early? No Terrain

Given the presence of a giant black gate (Mordor reference, much? ;)) I'm assuming one isn't supposed to be able to get into Crakamir too early in the game. I'm also assuming that fact is the cause of this bug: there's a spot on the Northeastern Crakamir map where it is, nonetheless, possible to get...

Thanks for the response. I can't imagine they're related - what sort of mercenaries hide out in Noximander-infested sinkholes - but it is, admittedly, the only place on that map I haven't been. Or solved the #26 pendant quest in BW. I wonder if they are related? They aren't related. I did that one a...

[Spoiler Request] Blackwater - Divine Ore Quest

Where is the group of mercenaries that has the blacksmith's ore? There's a group of mercenaries south of Blackwater, but they're related to a different quest, and I found two more groups in the area immediately to the east of Blackwater (one around some ruined buildings in the south-west corner, and...

I really enjoy the scarcity of gold. It makes me plan out how I want to spend it more that way. Absolutely. It's a too-common obsession of 'modern' RPGs to hand out ridiculously excessive quantities of gold because people apparently like phat lewt. :P Keeping the quantity of cash limited makes the ...
