    [​IMG] Ok I finally got the game and intend on going through it as a fighter rogue or ranger rogue.
    Any tips? Anything I need to look out for with the current patches etc? (issues I mean) And please no spoilers, they can wait untill I've finished it off and then you can tell me what i missed ;) .
    Any tips on char creation would be aprreciated, but not too many, and I'll be starting it Sunday night about 7 or 8 GMT so the char tips won't be much use then;).

    WOO HOO!! I finally got it :p ;) :D :) :cool:

    I would choose the ranger rogue over the fighter rogue as the heavy armour your fighter will likely be wearing will severely limit your dexterity bonuses. If you're going to be swinging a sword in light armour, may as well use a ranger so you can swing two for free. :)

    Yeah, Ranger/Rogue with high DEX, good INT and STR, decent WIS, the rest average then add your additional points to WIS until it's at the point you need to cast spells (14 at least).

    Light armor to take advantage of your DEX bonus. You can buy the second best light armor (Shadow Legion Armor) and it's possible to find a slightly better one (Greenleaf).

    You don't need many tips as the game is pretty easy except for the beginning.

    Make sure to install the latest patch though... There have been a bunch since the release of the game.

    [​IMG] Hmm, I noticed someone saying about patching online, can the game do an autoupdate? (no, I haven't had time to install it yet, me and Jack have been doing very important things with food and balls:p)

    Hmmm perhaps forget the dexterous ranger rogue idea. Play a fighter/rogue bounty hunter type character. Do maybe 14 dex, 16 str at least, and good intelligence and const. Try maybe 5-7 rogue levels spaced out over character development, and if you really want to play character development for all it's worth, save those skill points when you level to add to hide/move silently/pick locks/search/disable traps/use magic device when you take rogue levels. Or, since there are just barrel fulls of gold in the OC, forfit the hide/move silently and just dump points in use magic device. Spend your gold on invisibility scrolls/potions, and of course bull's strength potions/scrolls ;) Keep a heavy armor set for melee and a light one for sneaking. You can quick slot them for a quick switch when needed.

    Decided on a ranger/rogue in honour of my last D&D character. The idea is a bounty hunter type person. Starting as the ranger and taking rogue levels as I progress, probably slightly higher as the rogue. Going to stay in light armour throughout the game so I'll be dual weilding two light weapons. Any idea where I could get a hand crossbow to add in the game, noticed it was missing from the equipment lists in the book.
