    A6 - Question about Tower Colony barrier...

    Thank you! Edit: I put one more point in Spellcraft and she was able to dispel the barrier. Mage Spells = 15 Spellcraft = 7 Dispel Barrier = 3 Maybe someone else will benefit from this info. (I might need a reminder when I replay the game in a year or two.) 😄 Would it work with lower skill in Mage Spells and higher Spellcraft?

    A6 - Question about Tower Colony barrier...

    Hmmm...I'll increase those skills and try again later. Do you have any idea how high these skills need to be? I think her Spellcraft is 6 and she has 15 in Mage Spells.
  3. Hi. I just got my Dispel Barrier spell to level 3, but I can't dispel the barrier behind Djokov's Lab. Does my skill need to be higher than it is? Here are some screenshots from my Steam account. Thanks in advance for any help. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1410214512 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1410214603

    Thank you! I didn't realize there was more than one group of scavengers.

    A3: RW - Questions

    I can't find the spell book in the Filth Factory. My sight isn't the best, and all that junk on the walls doesn't help. I'd like to find the spell before I set fire to everything. Help?

    A3: RW - Questions

    Okay, thank you! I feel better now. Before I posted, I was worried about having to start over. Anaximander has just given me the quest to investigate the New Formello murders. I wasn't sure if I needed to go there now or if I could finish dealing with the roach plague first. ???

    A3: RW - Questions

    Oh, that's good to know. Thank you! I have a rush quest to deliver a mirror to someone in Moon. How far is Moon from Kneece? I'm about to talk with Purgatos about the roaches and I only have 5 days left for the delivery.
  8. I seem to be taking too long to solve the plagues. Since I've had experience with the other games in the series, I decided to play in hard mode. Maybe that wasn't such a good idea. The town of Colchis was destroyed. I'm not sure if that would normally happen or if it's because I went to the Isle of Bigail before I discovered Krizsan. I believe part of my problem is that I stole a book from Ernest and he sent me to "hell" for my crime. Since I haven't been able to survive that battle, I've been doing lots of running back and forth. Now that I've reached level 13 and gained a few extra spells, I think I might be able to handle it. How many days should I have spent to eradicate the slime plague? It's day 38, and I've finished with the slimes. I'm working on the cockroach plague now. Any suggestions about where I should go after I finish with the cockroaches? I'm so accustomed to taking my time in the Avernum games, and I probably do things differently than other players because I feel that I have to explore quite a bit in one area of the map before moving on. I'd probably feel like a failure if anything else is destroyed or innocent people die due to my taking too long. Thanks in advance for any replies.
  9. Spiderweb's website says, There aren't any links for the download. Odd. Edit: The date on the site has been changed to reflect that it'll be available on January 31st.

    A2: Crystal Souls - Questions

    I was thinking that it was a spell my priest didn't already know, and when I went to train, I was only able to buy one level (after finding the first level somewhere out in the world). However, I may have just forgotten that I'd already trained once. Thanks for explaining all that. I thought someone had posted that if you kill Limoncelli to learn Dispel Barrier or train with some other NPC (Aimee?) before getting the first level at Pyrn's Tower, it wouldn't count. I'd hate not being able to learn more than 2 levels of that spell.

    No, I only have a few points in Bows & Swords for the same reasons that you mentioned. I don't want my mage and priest to be completely reliant on their spells when they run out of energy or when the melee characters die. Now that I think about it, I believe the post I was reading about casters benefiting from Adrenaline Rush may have been someone's advice on playing as a singleton. I have my casters' spell skills maxed and now I'm putting points into Spellcraft. I appreciate all your tips for an optimal build. When I replay the game, I'll probably train different skills. The first thing I do when I start one of these games is give everyone at least one point in Priest spells because I don't like having to run back to town so often to revive fallen party members. I must be doing something right because the Cotra eyebeast is the only foe I haven't been able to beat other than the roaming ogres near the Tower of Magi before my party leveled up a bit. They don't die after the first blow anymore, thank goodness. My priest has learned Divine Fire now. I just need to find someone who teaches Fireblast. If my party learns the first level of a spell in a dungeon, will they still be able to train twice? If I recall correctly, my priest was only able to buy one level of a spell with the trainer in Fort Dranlon. I switch back and forth between the games in this series, so it could've been Avernum: EftP instead.

    Okay, now everyone in my party is level 21. I tried taking on the eyebeast in Cotra. Even with Invulnerability potions, I can only get its health down to about half before I'm annihilated. I'm hoping I still have time to raise my casters' weapon skills high enough for the benefit of using Adrenaline Rush. (?) (It never occurred to me that that discipline would be beneficial to them until I started browsing the forums.) I just read somewhere that characters don't get as many traits after level 30, and I haven't been putting any points into Resistance. Any thoughts on whether I can make it through the game without having many points in that? Now that I've got my melee characters' weapon skills built up, I'm putting more points into Parry/Riposte/Quick Action/Lethal Blow/Hardiness, etc. I truly hope I don't have to start over. They don't have many points in Gymnastics and Blademaster. Tool Use is 12, Cave Lore is 11, Arcane Lore is 13, Vahnatai Lore is 2, and First Aid is 8. I haven't invested in Luck or Sage Lore. My casters still need to learn Divine Fire and Fireblast. I suspect that will help me defeat creatures like the eyebeast. (?) Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I've had better luck with Dual Wielding in previous games (A6 & Avernum: EftP) than with sword and shield, but my characters were getting killed by ogres and giants before they even had a chance to attack. I started equipping them with the shields and increasing endurance so they'd have enough hit points to survive those massive blows. They're able to withstand a lot more damage now that they have 170+ hit points. My mage and priest can actually do as much or more damage with spells than my warriors which is fine by me because the warriors can survive long enough to keep them alive now. I have a ring with +2 to Dual Wielding, so I'll probably get rid of my sword fighter's shield and try increasing strength more often than endurance to see how it goes. I'm playing on normal difficulty. Maybe I just tried to complete some quests I wasn't meant to do until my characters were at a higher level.

    Thank you for replying. I don't understand what you mean regarding the stat increases. My characters are currently at level 16 and 17. How would the increases apply after level 6? To clarify my comments about stat increases above, I meant that sometimes I will see different stats above the characters' heads when they level up. The text is purple. Sometimes my warriors will get a point in strength and other times they'll get a point in dexterity, and if I recall correctly, they occasionally have an endurance increase. I mostly see bonuses of intelligence for my mage and priest, but sometimes they get dexterity bonuses. Also, I was wondering if intelligence has an effect on how much experience each character gains. My mage and priest level up faster even though they all have Quick Learning and Great Wisdom traits.
