Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Ok, I know what I'm missing now:

    * Ability to build up strength by repeatedly throwing boulders.

    Yeah I figured it out. Sadly, apparently I need the Bone Amulet for an item and I have no clue where I dropped it. Doubt there is any way to even remotely find out, either.

    A unique item with no apparent purpose and you threw it away? Self inflicted injury.

    I found it 2 hours later on level 4.

    - Don't worry too much about party configuration. 1 melee character to focus on evading, 1 melee character to focus on protection, 1 ranged character, 1 magic character. Bam. That'll get you through everything.
    - The first 6 floors are taxing, things get easier later when you have skillpoints under your belt and decent gear.
    - Look for secrets, there are dozens and they contain ammunition, gear and consumables. The more you find the easier things get.
    - Use consumables. There are a lot of them to be found and they make life a lot easier. Do not hoard, the game isn't that long.
    - Ice magic is cheap: the third spell freezes things. It makes life a hell of a lot easier.
    - Save frequently: ambushes and traps are frequent and fatal.
    - Fall down every hole: there's a ton of loot to be found at the bottom of pits.
    - You can return to previous levels and there are waaay too many torches in the game. Don't keep 20 in your inventory.
    - Don't worry about food, there's plenty to go around. There are 2 spots in the game (levels 6 and 9) with respawning monsters that drop food.
    - Don't worry about levels, kill everything you can but bear in mind you can grind xp in levels 4, 6 and 9 (infinite monsters spawn).
    - Queue up spells before fights by activating the runes, but not clicking the cast button.
    - Only characters that contribute in a fight get xp: make sure everyone does damage.
    - Pressure plate behind doors usually lock them and unleash hell on you: throw a stone on them to see what they do BEFORE you step on them.
    - Go through every teleport you see, activate every switch you can, check every wall for a hidden button.
    - Read every note and scroll: most give hints to secrets or puzzles.
    - When new monsters appear in areas you cleared it could be because they came from new areas. Check around, see where they came from.
    - You can drop things to pick up later. So fill containers with supplies, drop them near stairs/crystals and mark them on your map as a supply cache for later.
    - Keep moving: don't stand in front of monsters and slug it out. Attack, move away, repeat.
    - Don't drop monsters down pits. You don't get xp and now they're sitting down the hole waiting for when you fall down next time.
    - Spellcraft has a Light spell that makes torches useless. There is Mage gear in the game that glows as well, making the light spell useless.
    - Do not give your characters a mix of evasion and protection. Stack one of the two, it's better to specialise than to try and cover both

    I only just discovered dropping down pits wasn't an instant death/game over, 3/4 of the way through floor 3, while trying to figure how to open the iron door there (still didn't figure it out, I think I need to drop down from floor 2).

    It is also possible to achieve >100 evasion and 100 resist [to at least fire/cold/shock]

    I also thought that sleeping would be a great idea. Woke up to Kalia and Morning bleeding rather heavily.

    This game is fantastic. I am just starting Floor 3 and am utterly in love. The gameplay is just the right mix of classic, the art is gorgeous and a special shoutout to the sound design - the ambient (and sometimes not so ambient) noises of the dungeon are amazing and really add to the immersion.

    I definitely did not put enough thought into my party. May have to reroll eventually. TNTrooper's - my Minotaur warrior - accuracy (2) is terribad. He's not hitting anything. Thank God Kalia (my Mage) is freezing and burning everything in sight.

    Great job, Almost Human. Great job.

    My unarmed Rogue at evasion 102 is damn near unhittable by things on level 10. But I agree: he's doesn't have a 102% chance to evade attacks.

    That's handy. I haven't found any skulls and I made it to floor 5, so I knew I missed some. Also haven't found out how to access the iron door on the third floor or how to get to the book that's behind an iron bar gate on the 4th floor.

    Just finished the game. Everything up until the last level was complete gold. Things just went a little...predictable? silly? in the last segment. The end fight in particular felt out of place with the rest of the game.

    I beat the game and am going over it again because i feel like i missed a HUGE secret. This time with 3 rogues and a mage.

    Mage going down air for a good bit(then either ice/fire/spellcraft or protection, thinking protection) for a certain spell, 2 rogues in front go unarmed/daggers/dodge + 8 ranks in assassination. Rogue in back goes full assassination.

    Just get behind things and shred them. Also all humans to maximize skillpoints

    I find it odd that you basically can't max out a tree without focusing entirely on that tree and even then.. not maybe. A level 14 character will only have 45 points to spend (43 if a minotaur) which wouldn't max out a single tree! How odd..

    Is 14 the level cap or just the level you'll probably reach by the end of the dungeon?

    If it's the latter I imagine longer official dungeons or long user-made dungeons (or maybe even "campaigns" of dungeons if you can import/export parties) would offer the ability to go higher.

    impale.png
  • Magus`Magus` Registered User regular
    It's what people seem to generally hit by the last level. There are areas with limitless (but slowly spawning and low XP) monsters but the amount of time it would take to even get one level from them (past 14 that is) would be in hours.
