    Which weapontype is the best for a dwarfen Fighter to do much damage?

    Which domain gives the stoneskin spell?

    If you don´t want to use Scather and Fragarach as "cheating" then why do you care what weapontype does the most damage? Just take a weapon that you see as fitting for your dwarVen warrior and play the game :beer:

    Something else: When I first played ToEE I did so with a PC that only met the minimum requirements. Worked fine at the start but slowed to a crawl in the first large battles or in the Temple halls that have visual effects. So if you want to enjoy the game at the best visual setting in the options be sure to exceed even the recommended settings:

    And you might consider downloading a portrait pack too for some extra pictures

    Try the Dwarven Waraxe as it is a D10 weapon while being onehanded and a nice crit. You can still use a shield as well. You won't find an artifact version of it but you can buy a masterwork version and then upgrade it.

    Did they ever fix the Scather and Fragarach bug in the fire realm? If so, I may have to reinstall this game and see all of the improvements. I had a great time playing it back in the day.

    Any advice?

    ---------- Added 1 hours, 43 minutes and 5 seconds later... ----------

    I cant see the special dwarven proficiency of dwarven waraxe in my feats screen.

    How do I know this feat is actually in place?

    ---------- Added 1 hours, 38 minutes and 20 seconds later... ----------

    Edit: And I hope you made sure to download and install the NEW CONTENT version of the Co8 modpack and not the STANDARD version.

    Yes, I got NC edition, dont worry.

    What is the best and/or cheapest way to identify Items?
    Do potions also need to be identified?

    Hmm...
    Do you think a 2handed weapon and a buckler (even with -1 on attacks) is better than a 1handed one plus some shield?

    And I made a mistake with my dwarven cleric. Because the dwarven handaxe is not automaticcaly proficient, its only converted to a war weapon for him...

    ---------- Added 19 hours, 12 minutes and 49 seconds later... ----------

    Is there a way to see if an item is already identified or if it needs identification?

    Identify costs 100 gold. Most shops can identify your items and your spellcasters can learn and cast the spell too for the case that you won´t be returning to a shop soon.

    Some do. However for scrolls and potions you can use the "Read Magic" spell for that purpose.

    Yes. Or no - depends on my changing moods. :rolleyes:

    Thank you!

    Do you have some tips on how to beat the priest(final boss) in the moathouse?

    I have a level 3 party of Fighter, Cleric, Rogue,Bard and Sorcerer...

    What is the best place to go after completing the moathause?

    Open the logbook. Go to the quests tab. Active quests are blue. Solved quests are green.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 8 minutes and 15 seconds later... ----------

    Well, the obvious tips: Before challenging the boss first clear everythinng else on all levels of the entire moathouse. Before solve all quests you can solve in Hommlet - which means speak to everyone in Hommlet to get all sidequests like clearing the Deklo Wood Grove. In other words farm every bit of easy XP before. And open all possible barrels in Hommlet.

    Reporting that you completed the moathouse to the questgiver. Some people have the stomach not only to give you a quest to complete but expect you to report to them when you have done it :cool:

    I meant which are the next bigger quests that I can access after cleaning the moathouse?
    What about Emridy Meadows?

    Do you think the bard and sorcerer can become good tanks later(thinking mirror image and stoneskin)?

    Try Nulb.

    I wouldn't recommend tanking the Bard or Sorcy.

    Is there a good place to rest in so that creatures are spawned when I sleep that give some decent xp?

    ---------- Added 18 hours, 54 minutes and 38 seconds later... ----------

    I have a big problem: the game always crashes when I want to go to Nulb.
    Do you have an idea how to fix this bug?

    The rest button is green when it´s safe to rest so what you want is to rest when it´s yellow and there is the risk of some monster waking you up. :tobattle:
    However that only makes sense if you already completely cleared all areas known to you and completed all possible sidequests for XP.

    That depends on why it crashes. Any error message?

    In general:
    Don´t run any programs in the background while playing. It´s comfortable to have a dozen programs running and to alt-tab through them as wanted but older games don´t like that.
    Run the game with administrator rights.
    Do you hav version 8.1.0 of Co8 installed without any errors during installation?
    Do you have the newest drivers for you graphics card?

    From what i've found on the co8 forums :

    - might be a corrupt save game, try one of your older savegames first.
    - reinstall co8 , also delete cache files and .pyc files.

    As you mention savegames - sloty do you have "auto-save" turned off?
    Co8 recommends to turn it off as it can wreak havoc with scripts.
    And never save/reload DURING a battle.

    Hi Sloty,

    I am interested in your corrupted save. I'm working on a new ToEE engine mod called TemplePlus, and I'd like to collect corrupt save games so I can diagnose the problem and hopefully fix it.

    Also if you or anyone happens to be interested in helping with testing (currently alpha - see changelog), your help would be most appreciated:
