    Is there a Hintbook for PoE out anywhere? I looked on Amazon and can't find anything. Any advice?

    I am not sure what you mean. There is a guide book. The official forum has a WIKI section although it needs to be updated. If you are on Steam there is I believe a user made manual.

    I should have been more specific and thanks for your reply. I bought a users manual from Amazon. I found that and a guidebook they are selling for about 23 dollars. I thought what I bought was a hintbook like the ones for Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale. The book I bought just talks about the lands and has a bestiary and other things. I'm in a difficult spot in Od Nua with those crystal eater spiders and Vithraks and it seems every battle is going to be tough here on in. Plus Aloth cant cast spells and cant use his wands after I found a really nice one, and I need a forum or a Cluebook (which I looked for on amazon) but right now I have a lot of questions and I could use some in game advice. Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon...

    There's no hintbook as far as I'm aware, but you can always ask questions here or on the official forum if you're having problems.

    What level is your party? Od Nua gets more difficult as you go down so you may need to level up your party. Who is in your Party?

    Sounds like you may have a bug with Aloh. I also think I saw a thread in the official Technical Forum about the crystal eater but since I don't usually check if I am not having a problem I am not sure.

    My party is level 9 mostly.
    My Fighter 9
    Eder 9
    Pellagina 9
    Kara 8 (A Rogue I hired at the Inn)
    Kana 9
    Aloth 9
    I just checked my characters and Aloth still can't cast spells after I left Od Nua and the elawein ein wand he has can't be unequipped. When I click on it it says that item can't occupy that slot, and he only melees doing 0.6 damage when he does anything. I don't have any of the patches DL'ed because I didn't know where to find the official site until today. Hope to hear from someone soon.

    Yeah, first thing you gotta do is patch the game. Unfortunately, patches introduce a lot of changes along with the bugfixes, so I imagine it's gonna be quite disorienting if you're playing an early version.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 9 minutes and 22 seconds later... ----------

    I should also mention patches are uploaded to distributors (Steam or GOG), so they have to be downloaded from there (automatic if using Steam or Galaxy).

    I don't think Obsidian has their own FTP servers with patch files.

    I went to GoG and found the 1.05 and 1.06 patches in my library, along with some previous patches and hotfixes. Which do I install? and where do I put the patch when I find the right one. I dl'ed 1.06 and 1.05 and it went to my favorites folder but I started the game up and I still cant cast spells with ALoth. I probably didn't put the patch in the right place, I'm not very computer saavy. please help and thanks in advance.

    ---

    The DL of the patches didn't go to my favorites section...they went to my Downloads section of my computer. And when I tried to run them it said they weren't compatible or updated to my version of the game.

    That depends on what version your installed game already is. So what is the version number of your game?

    GOG should have a bunch of patches, but they should be installed in order.

    Each of the patches notes which version it updates.

    Do I install everything above? What about my current game I've been playing since I got the game? (pillars of eternity parts1-3)

    My game version currently is 1.0.2.0508

    I did all the patches and hotfixes but it says my game version is still 1.0.2.0508. Also Aloths spells are still greyed out when I hover over the spell levels with my mouse and his wand still says that item cannot be equipped in this slot. I went to Obsidians website and I don't know what Obsidian calls a secret project so I can't register for an account to post there. Dammit! what a newb request to ask of you people...If someone could send me a PM with the answer to that one I'd appreciate it. Sorry:)

    you mean the registration question you need to fill in during account creation ?
    question is different each time you load their registration form, but the answer is allready included.
    for example it will say something like "For what does WoT stand? (A: Way Off Topic)"

    A: means answer, so just fill in Way Off Topic, or whatever the answer is to the question you get...

    There is now an extremely expensive "Collector's Edition" Prima guide book, but if there has ever been a ordinary edition, none are available any longer. I would like such a thing, myself!
