    [​IMG] Well, I'm sure the experts are aware of this, but just in case anyone else falls in to the same trap...

    When you start ToB with a (solo) sorcerer, you don't start with any memorised spells. Thus, make a point of resting before you speak with the statues, and set events in motion.

    While we're on tips:

    Another tip is, in Saradush take your party to the top of the wall and move any party members with a ranged weapon to the very outskirt of the wall. Put Party AI on and your party fires upon the Giants outside even though you cant see them ^^.

    8000exp each kill and you can keep killing as long as you like.

    Is this cheese? :s :rolleyes:

    Would that be kind of boring though? A sorcerer wouldn't hit much. . .and you would have to keep buying ammunition.

    Seems like a waste of time to me.

    There are plenty of returning missiles, Gesen bow, Tansheron bow, Fire Tooth, Dwarven thrower,...

    I dont think thats cheese. You're just defending the city off walls.

    Whats is cheese though:
    1: There are unlimited number of fire giants... It could be easily don to... 200? Some limited number anyway.
    2: You dont get shot by the fiery giants. While there are NPC guards firing off the walls, they will get eventualy killed by giants. And when there are no more guards left... you are free to fire as you please.
    But if the barracks at the bottom of the stairs come into your line of sight, new guards will start popping out, walking up the stairs and get killed again.
    Only in such a blast can you get killed. ;)
