  1. Not sure if ps3 has it but look up torchlight. You can make specific builds for each character type, has tons of loot, randomized levels, and a never ending dungeon (levels never end)
  2. Sacred 3 not to be an MMO

    Why mess with what works? Sacred 3 should follow the obvious successes of the previous two games. No need to rewrite the script. I won't bother if it isn't similar to the other 2 games. I need to able to create my personal builds and wander freely.
  3. LocNar's Mob Ruling Inquisitor

    Update: Level 80 in platinum. No deaths and using Inexorable Subjugation to create a killing horde, usually around 5 active at most times. Even though there's no offensive skills, the dual wield remains a good and simple choice against most enemies while subjugation recharges [which is quick]. Mob killing remains simple and easy. Bosses/mini-bosses offer no difficulty. LocNar
  4. What level for bosses?

    Not only the Forest Guardian for me but the Tree Spirit in the higher levels; damn thing keeps healing itself. As for the boss levels; I think your character needs have a spell for protecting yourself and an attack that can stun them. Early in the game, I notice the bosses and mini-bosses have the upper hand as your life is low and attacks are low. As a temple guardian, the second arm can really help in close up fighting. Also, the beam attack seems to work well.
  5. Just an update. The toon is now level 108 and has completed the main and character specific quests in Niob. Little difficulty during his quick romp through Niob. In fact, the only tough character to beat was the Tree Spirit mini-boss because he kept re-casting the heal spell on himself. I have 75 hard points to get mastery in Death Warrior Focus Tactics Lore Benevolent Champion Focus Hafted Weapons Armor Lore Combat Discipline Now working on the side quests and will add points to the focuses and dam. He has over 100 skill points from +all skill gear and sockets. He hits hard and often with enough per hit regen to use demonic blow with every attack. Same goes for frenzied rampage. Still a fun player to use.
  6. Fastest Boss Killer

    My SW is a boss pwner: cast combo--> Rousing command+augmenting guidon+killing spree then frenzied rampage until dead. Normally he kills bosses under 20 secs without taking a scratch. The FR reboots itself every time so I just keep re-casting it. Funny thing, the only mini-boss I ever had trouble with was the Flame Lord. The other night I couldn't get any damage on him. So I ran away...
  7. Build Update: This one's for Axel! Here's some updated data: CA mods: Demonic Blow- Vehemence [works so well with a crit hit] + Poisoning + Trauma [for bosses] Rousing Command- Persistance + Impulse + Surge Grim Resilience- Foritfy + Readiness + Safeguard [Massive defense boosts for Noib] Frenzied Rampage- Double Attack + Double Strike + Vampire Augmenting Guidon- Elite + Tutor [works on consoles] + Leadership Killing Spree- Control + Burst + Sear Reflective Emanation- Backlash + Antimagic + Riposte Masteries and points: Master Death warrior focus, hafted weapons, and malevolent champion focus first Then Tactics, Armor lore, combat discipline, constitution and then toughness. Afterwards, place points into tactics and combat discipline. He's going to regen his CAs very quickly so combat disp makes sense as he'll be rarely hitting a non-CA attack. I still don't use any Spectral skills. This character should get in, smack 'em down, then move on to the next group. ZConnor
  8. Frantic, Welcome to the Sacred world! It is a great game! As for your SW tanker, there are some builds for this on the website. But to summarize the builds, you should begin with your 2 buffs, Grim Resilience and Reflective Emenation. These two buffs working together and modded correctly will give you plenty of health, defense, and survivability. The main CAs I've used with great success are demonic blow as the main attack and Frenzied Rampage while using Augmenting Guidon+Killing Spree+Rousing Command to clear large hedious mobs. Tactics and a weapon specialization is critical. You won't be using many offensive spells with a SW so your wep damage must be high. I put all points in strength. Grim gives you health bonus with a mod so I just use that. And constitution provides health as well. I see your on XBOX, look me up l33t_locnar. ZConnor
  9. Favourite Boss?

    I never found the minotaur lord, but I like the Werewolf lord, BloodFang or something? Just the way his body goes when he dies is pretty cool I think the Minotaur's name is Helios. You can find him in the NE section of the desert. Head into the Sands of the Thousand Antenna and go east and north around the lake. His cave entrance is on the north end of the map. Zconnor
  10. Howdy all! I've been wanting to create an Inquisitor. I had previously made a dual wielding offensive crusher and also a corpse exploder but was never really satisfied with them. Then I started this Inquisitor and found almost by accident that he's a very successful crowd controller and effective overall character. Some of the mods can be messed around with but the major points are laid out below. You may scratch your head a bit but he's proven himself well with no deaths and barely taking any significant damage. Attributes: Level 1-50ish: Vitality Post 50ish: Intelligence Skills: 1. Nefarious Netherworld lore [keep up with level] 2. Astute Supremacy Lore [keep up with level] 3. Dual Wield 4. Concentration 5. Nefarious Netherworld focus [as many points as needed to keep regen playable] 6. Astute Supremacy focus [as many points as needed to keep regen playable] 7. Constitution 8. Armor Lore [mastery] 9. Bargaining [get mastery at least] 10. Toughness [mastery level] ***Note: You won't see any tactics lore here but he doesn't need it given his high magic abilities; dual wield with CE is a very good attack*** Combat arts: 1. Buffs: a. Reverse Polarity: The mods to use are to reflect as much as possible [this really takes effect later on when half of the attacks are being reflected.] b. Zealous Doppleganger: This buff provides a great meat shield and can wreak havoc all over the place. ***Note: Given this character isn't a melee machine so Purifying Chastanement isn't necessary. Plus Soul Reaver doesn't work well with the Doppleganger's ability to cast it also*** 2. Attack Combat Arts a. Callous Execution: unmodded. I use it as my main attack. [socket your weapons in another slot] The damage isn't huge but with dual wield you get 2 strikes and can still cause significant damage. b. Clustering Maelstrom: mod for higher damage [not higher colision dam] and increased range. I also found the bleed mod to be useful. c. Levin Array: mod for increased range and crits. d. Eruptive Desecration: Mod for increased range and damage. [Great for cleaning up mobs] e. Disloged spirit: Mod for increased duration and dam [excellent against bosses] f. Inexorable Subjugation: Mod for increased dam and life of the 'subjects' ***Note: Paralyzing Dread is bugged on the console and will not work*** 3. Items: a. I really like Ker's Hand with this build. Gives you +experience and good sockets for those +all skills ammys and rings. b. Some of Idgard's are good like the helm, armor plate, and shoulders [stay away from the gear that promote GI arts as you won't get much use from those] c. Gear with increased run speed works very well to keep the Inquisitor moving and laying waste in a hurry. d. +all skills gear is necessary, hence the bargaining skill. This build requires high levels for health and regen and can use all the help he can get. 4. How to use: a. Callous execution is your main melee attack. Slot it as your main 'A' button b. Get your buffs up a fast as possible [obviously get the doppleganger first, then mod Reverse Polarity] c. For single or double enemies: cast an Inexorable Subjugation and take over one enemy, then CE the other one. Do this often! These 'subjects' will fight for you relentlessly until they 'die'. You get the experience from their kills. I haven't seen a cap on the amount of subjects you can have so create a mob of your own and watch them crush everything around them. Also, at times your doppleganger will cast IS too. When he does, assist in the kill as his IS isn't nearly as strong as yours. d. Mob control: Combo up Clustering Maelstrom with Levin Array. Then use IS and CE or blow up a corpse to clean it up. e. Bosses: Here is where things get a bit slow. If you have a mob, then things will be much easier. But combo Dislodged Spirit with Inexorable Subjugation on the boss, then CE him, and re-cast the combo. When your regen gets fast enough, you can re-cast the combo without even using CE. The boss will barely have enough time to swing on you. And with Reverse Polarity, there's a good chance that you'll reflect it anyway. Good luck and have fun with your own personal mob fighting in your honor! ZConnor
  11. Advices For A Melee Inquisitor

    Not sure if this has been discussed but my main problems with my dual weilding melee Inquisitor was too little life and feeling like a god CE'ing everything in site and progressing too quickly. I like the 4 levels per area method. Niob just crushed my first attempt when I got there. Any mob would make me run like a lil schoolgirl. Fortunately, I re-evaluated the build and made the necessary changes. Now he rocks the joint. Zconnor
  12. Favourite Boss?

    Ah, the dragon king! I like him. But! My fav is the Octoglamus. Freaky looking thing in my book. I like to watch him lose those arms one at a time while I'm smacking him down to my size. As for the mini-bosses, I prefer the Minotaur lord. Nothing like using my inquisitor to 'hire' the other minotaurs in his cavern to waste him for me! Zconnor
  13. XBOX 360 co-op help!

    Thanks for all the replies! With everyone's help I figured it out. To play co-op and on the same team, I need my son to log in under his mother's account and create a character [a SW]. He then accesses this character after I've started the game with an offline character only on campaign mode. This way we share the experience but no the items. I'm the host but he seems to get most of the drops. Even if I open a chest, he seems to get the drops! I can't collect them unless the time limit ends. Weird, but then again he's my kid so I don't mind him getting the drops. The no-trading bit really stinks though. Both of our players are offline! Please fix this with Sacred 3! Zconnor
  14. Howdy all! I have a question about the XBOX 360 co-op. My son wants to play co-op with me on the Sacred 2. But I'm having a problem. Not sure if this can be done but: Can he log in as a guest under my account and use one of my characters on the same team? So far I'm not having any luck with this. He can log in under my wife's account but she doesn't have LIVE and we can only play offline and we aren't on the same team, even with both characters playing the same mode [light or dark]. Thanks for any help! Zconnor
  15. Thanks for replies! I think I'll use the two skills for bargaining and toughness. As for the bosses. It takes longer to kill them but he doesn't have much trouble. Casting dislodged and subjugation really helps. Zconnor
