    I just ran into a glitch where a guy I was supposed to kill went immortal. His health bar was at zero, but he wouldn't die no matter how many times I hit him.

    This quest is starting to frustrate me.
    Is it Prescott Cormic? Cause I've been having an issue with him. Apparently you have to load up a save from before taking the quest to fix it.
    Ah hell.

    I really do not feel like doing that.

    I've reached I guess what is almost the end of the game (just got out of the Swamp), and I can't seem to find anymore quests via Job Boards. The only rep 'questline' that I've finished is the Mages one, while all the others are sitting in the 90's/100 right now.

    Did I miss a job board or something? The only three that I know of are in the Mage Guild Tower, in New Ashos and outside of Hatmandor. So what gives?

    There's a job board in the Swallows, from before the catastrophe. The jobs don't give any reward, but they still count toward the guild rep. I don't remember exactly where it is, but I think it's in the old university ruins.

    For the Thieves' Guild, there is a quest-giver named Scythe in the Hatmandor/Cheznaddar sewer; she is somewhat off the beaten path. Also, you may have killed her in a previous storyline quest, in which case you're SOL Here is a link to a list of all the guild quests you need for 100/100.

    Yeah. TopWare backed off that already according to Destructoid's source Beefjack. Destructoid just hasn't updated.

    http://beefjack.com/news/topware-denies-blacklisting-allegations-more-info-leaks-in/

    EDIT: Also, TopWare's head of U.S. marketing (James Seaman) has been apologizing for what happened in the comments of the Destructoid post. "My team needs to take a step back as the UK has been pretty harsh on our game, but such is life. I will make sure that nothing like this ever happens again, but some of my guys have put their heart and soul into this game and just need to take a step back."

    They messed up. But it looks like they're cleaning it up.

    EDIT 2: Huh. I guess Destructoid did update. They just thought TopWare's response was a denial where I saw it more as an explanation for why they did wrong. Regardless, I think we can all agree that "I will make sure that nothing like this ever happens again" is a pretty concrete statement of guilt and contrition.

    Now if only they release a statement and explain when the heck the UK Steam market gets the game.

    Props for admitting to the BS though. Atleast they came clean, which is more than what can be said of some studios.

    Yes - and thanks for that link earlier. Turns out I missed the job board at the Old University, but right now I'm still missing 100/100 for the merchant and thieves guild.

    Also, the Fortune and Glory achievement (25 dungeons) can go fuck a hat. Beat the game, found everything (according to the online released map) and I still only have 18/25.

    Alright, I am loving this game way more than I thought I would. I mean, I was pretty sure I would enjoy it despite it's flaws (I'm good at that) but honestly there aren't nearly as many flaws as I actually thought there'd be, and it's just better, in general, than I was expecting. It's kind of blowing my mind.

    I'm around level 20, still on the big Savannah island wrapping up every quest I can find before going forward. This plan was working really well for me, but I was a little curious when I would get the skill books to unlock certain skills that seemed important, until I accidentally did a story mission and by the end of it I had like 3 or 4 new skill books. Maybe I should have done that one first afterall. :P


    Echoing what's been said by others before about how most of the armor and clothing looks really stupid, no matter what color you dye it. I do love that you can customize your equipment like that though.


    The way the game doesn't take itself too seriously and is more than happy to make fun of it's self w/r/t typical gaming tropes is really refreshing to me. It feels good to play a deep, complicated RPG and still be able to laugh at every other line.

    Anyway, I'm really glad I bought it. During the first ten minutes or so I was sort of questioning my purchase due to the at times janky graphics, the frame rate drops, the bad VA/writing/translation, and the drunken way the camera wobbles when you look around; but all of these things faded to the periphery rather quickly, allowing me to enjoy all the good things about it.


    I'd actually recommend this game to people, which I wasn't necessarily expecting.

    I think my favorite thing about this game is it's sense of humor about itself, and the genre in general.

    For instance, the guy that sends you off to murder the apes that stole his tools. The resolution to that seriously had me laughing at how absurd it was, and how it wasn't at all what I expected.

    Oh yeah. I like how he says he was hinting at you the whole time. I was tempted to re-do the quest and see the outcome if I went that route, but I didn't.

    Speaking of which, let's say, hypothetically, a certain someone misplaced his horse....how am I supposed to do that quest if the Call Horse function only works if your horse is, like, right next to you?

    When I see that there's a "call horse" button I assume it calls it to me from wherever it is, not that it brings it from 20 feet away to 2 feet away, and that's it. Bad idea, that.

    You can fight and kill Selen (the local crime boss-ess on top of the island tower). Depending on what level you are, this may be pretty difficult. She killed me in two hits, but after a couple reloads I was able to hit & run enough to wear her down.

    This choice will also lead to another short quest once you get to Hatmandor.

    You just unlocked the best part of the game! In chapter 1 at least!

    I love my fireball that rains anvils.

    and my missile with a whirlwind finish that flings bodies and rocks and etc. around.

    and my ice ball that blinds.

    and my water walking.

    and my scorpion/spider/skeleton/earth elemental/varn/scapalari or whatever summons. Love those too.


    e: Clarified 'in chapter 1' statement. I haven't left chapter one... still running around doing quests and blowing dudes up and exploring caves.

    spoiler for outside Cheznaddar:
    I wish I could further develop the craftsman coop thing.

    I got this off Steam the other day, because while I've seen the 360 version in stores, I haven't seen the PC version anywhere. Anyway, I went pure mage, leaning heavily on Water spells with just enough fire and air to use some of the other spells. Is it better to try and focus on one or two elements, or spread that around evenly? I've been dumping most of my other skill points into the magic support skills (battle clarity, wisdom, etc), with some more in the crafting skills so I can use all these gems I've been finding.

    You get so many skill points it won't hurt you to raise them all. I've got 7 points in Air/Water/Fire right now and -finally- just found an earth book. (Stupid earth book was hiding from me)

    I'm gonna gem for the last three points in each and focus my points in other areas now. Probably crafting areas and flesh out the rest of my magic skills. Sitting at 7 points in lockpick too.

    Morrowind is my favorite PC game. Melee combat is kind of boring though, true. I prefer archery (without the crosshair... that just fucks you up) and getting those nasty sneak attacks. Magic is also pretty hilariously good.

    So last night I actually realized the full potential of the magic system here. I was wondering what those extra spell amulets were doing below my spells in the spell crafting screen :P

    How foolish I've been putting only 1 point into Willpower every level up so far! I'm pretty much gonna be invisible and buffed at all times from now on, preferably with a Dark Knight assissant to help me.

    I love this game. I think I actually like it more than Oblivion, which is saying something because I freaking loved Oblivion.



    ...and I haven't even gotten past the Savannah island yet. :shock:

    It's been mentioned before, but its' worth repeating. When on horseback, only hold the 'w' key and use the mouse to steer and space to jump. Don't hit A or S at all. It improves the experience somewhat.
