    You know, I think I might roll my own characters and start over, now that I have a feel for the game.


    Do rogues really suck that much? I kind of get the feeling they do, since it's not as though there's a lot of trap-finding or lock-picking, and really, how often do you luck out and happen to attack an enemy from behind


    PS fuck all spider nests

    Fuck, man. I need to buy this when I get home. It looked so good and it appears to be pretty pimp.

    So far the main draw of Rogues (for me) is the Assassination skill ladder letting them make melee attacks from the back row

    hmmm

    I was focusing on bows/slings/crossbows with my Rogue, but yeah, I can see the appeal of that.

    Also, thank god arrows aren't consumed in combat.

    i noticed that when i threw 'a' rock, it seemed to throw like 4 at once
    did it do 4x damage potential too?

    granted, i've only played for like 20 minutes or something

    Did you throw it by dragging it to the top part of the screen and releasing? That's more the "throw it for a puzzle" throw. To throw as a weapon (and one at a time instead of the whole stack) put it in a character's hand and right-click.

    If you attack with a stack of rocks (equipped in character's hand, you click on weapon like you would a melee weapon to attack) then you only attack with one at a time. If you pick up the entire stack and the gesture at the top of the screen to throw it, then yes you will throw the whole stack.

    here is how you min/max your rogue

    make him a minotaur with headhunter and aggressive

    pump every point you can into str and the rest into vit/ene (dex is meaningless since ranged weapons hit 100% of the time)

    get the secret bow on level 3

    collect skulls

    destroy shit utterly

    I think I am going to try two fighters up front and two mages in the back, efficiency be damned. Also decided against mapping the dungeons myself as I will actually want to finish the game.

    okay so yeah

    rerolled as a tank-y fighter and a dex-y fighter who will sometimes use a bow

    pair of bug wizards, one frost one air

    hello ice-enchanted arrows all the time forever, I love you

    Man, this game is tough sometimes. I really like it, though. It's literally everything I wanted it to be. Too bad I keep getting my ass kicked by these fucking mushroom fucks.

    The fuckers.

    Frost bombs and Fireburst are basically a win button for tiles occupied by multiple enemies

    Not that I've actually been able to play this game for a couple of days

    earth is the worst element for a mage since roughly 60% of the enemies in grimrock are immune to poison

  • Options
    redfenixredfenix Aka'd as rfix Registered User regular
    yeah, i may reroll
    and that's sad, cause my rogue can just now attack melee from the back row

  • Options

    it really doesnt take that long to reroll and get to level 3 or so

    At the very least if you're fighting things immune to an element your mage can make you take less damage from that element and just throw rocks or something.

    I can't wait until there is added content for this. The base game is great, sure, but the potential even more so.

    patch coming later this week:
    - vsync is enabled by default
    - borderless windows are no longer topmost
    - pressing ESC closes character sheet
    - fixed unlimited frost arrow exploit
    - bug fix: topmost menu item don’t work reliably in 2560×1440 resolution
    - bug fix: wall text translations are not dismissed when right-clicking
    - bug fix: inanimate objects can be backstabbed
    - bug fix: projectiles go through doors in some very rare cases
    - improved display resolution auto-detection at first launch
    - fixed a couple of typos
    - removed check that disables high texture resolution setting when running low on video memory (some graphics drivers seem to report available video memory incorrectly)

    There's also a map editor coming at some point which will be amazing to have.

    I can't wait for the inevitable Eye of the Beholder remake that comes out when the map editor is released.

    I wonder how possible it would be to add new creatures/models/items to the game.

    I beat it yesterday morning

    I'd rather fight an army of fucking spiders than deal with some of those puzzles again

    But


    Awesome game. Hooked me better than Skyrim ever did.
