    Would you believe it. I started a new game, got the updates installed, and created only one character. FIRST, I got killed cause you know when you have only 10 or 15 HP points from start at default, even at normal mode you have to be VERY CAREFUL while advancing. Arrived at first level against Sherican at ICE level, got parallized then charmed and while they continued to hit me---> good-bye. SECOND, I started another game as before, new character, this time I edited the hp points, modified into 700 hp points !!!!! everything else let on default, and AGAIN they killed me in level two in Ice Temple while fighting against first princess Lysara I guess, anyway first I got the armor of faith spell activated on me + a potion of agility and protection from evil, I killed to hunters, but the princess casted HELD on me and right after it CHARMED, and finally I was finished. So how the hell should I play the game ? What the hell to edit, this, that ---> bad luck again---> good-bye. Now I deleted but for how long will I keep myself calm....? What do you edit most ?

    [​IMG] Perhaps enabling the console to level yourself up may be more successful.

    Or actually having more than one character.

    Or enabling cheat keys so you can use Ctrl+R to heal your person.

    You're soloing? On the first time you're playing the game? Or, for that matter, any D&D game?

    Load up six characters. Use a pre-formed party if you don't want to take the time to figure out all the character selection stuff.

    Also, you can use Dalekeeper to give yourself powerful weapons and armour.

    The learning curve for this game is steep. There are an extraordinary number of different selections and choices to make, which can overwhelm you. Turn it down to easy, and just figure out the engine and interface.

    Um, are you aware that you can save your game at any point as long as enemies are not near by? If you die, just reload and try again.

    I see that your character has problems with enchantment spells with will saving throws. He/she often fails this saving throw.

    This problem can be solved or lessened. Just increase the possibility, that your character can withstand these spells. How?

    The hint depends on your D&D knowledge. You need to increase your will saving throws. With an item that increases saving throws (or just this one), with a feats that increases will saving throw, or put more points into wisdom - saving throw adds wisdom bonus.

    If you min/Max your character and put wisdom to low values, your character will often fail will saving throw and suffer under these spells.

    Will saving throw is also based on character class ... fighters, barbarians have low starting value in this saving throw.


    Sorry, I can not write whole story on saving throws ... first I have not remembered everything (especially tables) and second this a place just for hints.

    [​IMG] Perhaps you should lower the difficulty to "Easy"...

    I'm sorry Blackthorne TA (your Majesty (he-he)), but that's enough for me, I don't want to become again K.O, come on, put yourself in my place. Not a chance at all, I'm going to get a vacation, as for Herdron Kerdos and his terrible ma I reccommend themselves to dig some tunnels underground to escape from the damnable golblins.
    Anyway I just wanted to say tha you have a nice forum, many interesting things I've found here. Good for ye ! Keep up the good work !

    See ya !!

    Don't give up Sergiu.

    Is it your first D&D based cRPG?

    I played PnP RPG in my younger days. Then computer RPGs came. Not D&D. I found that mana system (like Diablo) is better for spell based characters. It recovers. You can cast so many spells. These games were piece of cake for me.

    Than one of my former PnP RPG friends told me about some good cRPGs. I tried them. I was dissapointed because of my previous experience with Diblo and co. It was a hard time. But what a chalenge. I like chalenge. I like new systems. (Where is 4rd edition ;) ).


    Try again. Lower to Easy (as Tal recomended). Learn. Try harder. Go Normal. And one day: HoF awaits you.

    Try NWN with rogue first, then with sorceres. It's good, and I think with one character it is easier then IWDII.

    Dude, Baleful Armor.

    That will seriously Help you. If you have dalekeeper, Set up a fighter with that armor, the Mooncalf's shield, the Golden Heart, and the Hands of helm.. Get some rings of spell resist or what not..

    If you are gonna cheat, try Items first..

    Also, How to be An Adventurer 2nd Ed. ^_^ Might help those Levels abit

    And you are try to solo your first go through?> Use a part of 4

    Fighter
    Rogue
    Cleric
    Wiz/Sor. (Either or, not a Multi.)
