  1. Conspiracy theorists reckon they were never really on the bridge.
  2. In jumping, Kevin fell headfirst. A E I O U. Steve.
  3. I like to sound my horn too. Usually when stuck in miles of traffic............................
  4. Oh btw..............2 things. Sorry, but I'm playing on the pc and I think this is a thread for console ?! Hope that is ok ? 2nd, I don't think that griffin de-buffs ALL the time. What I mean is, that he will de-buff you for sure, but if you immediately re-buff yourself he won't zap you again for a while. I'm thinking that he can only cast the de-buff spell occationally rather than constantly. I've beaten him with 4 or 5 classes now without too much bother. Like I said, just re-buff yourself and kick it's behind. Apart from the de-buff spell, he is a bit of a wimp. So much so that I can't even remember using a single health pot ! Go for it. Steve.
  5. Garganthropod for me. Why ......................because he just stole my survival bonus of over 80%, the dirty rat ! I got him in the end, but my sb is back down to 1%, and that blows ! Steve.
  6. OUCH !! Sorry to hear that mate, sounds horrible. No tips from me, as thankfully I haven't suffered with that injury, but I wish you a speedy recovery. Steve.
  7. Thankyou for the replies. Hmmmm, you are spot on with diminishing...................sheesh ! I checked my total, un-equiped items and checked again. The diminishing effect seems very harsh. I just got frustrated with the old swing 'n' miss, so spent ages trying to build up that mod to help out my SW. Wish I hadn't bothered now ! I'll keep a small amount, but switch to alternate mods from here on. Thanks again for assistance, much appreciated. I must stop scratching my head................these splinters really hurt ! See ya. Steve.
  8. Hi. Sorry, I have probably posted this in the wrong area, but was unsure where it fitted !? Ok. I have been boosting my "opponants chance to evade attack" stats by buying items with that mod. I have got it up to -69.4%, but, when checking the bonus overview, it says that it is only at -46.4% !! Not amused.............. Any idea's as to why it is saying that the stat is 23% lower than it should be ? Is the game playing at the -69.4% as it should be or at the lower % that it is displaying ? Steve.
  9. 1000X thanks to all you guys/gals doing the Wiki. Incredibubble. If it wern't for the Wiki I would be here all day asking questions instead of actually playing the game itself ! Cheers to you all, yer da best. Steve.
  10. I last got my class specific mount back in 2009 or 2010 so I really can't remember whether it was any good or not, tbh. Surely it has to be better than the horse ?!?! Can't wait to find out though. I can just about remember going to an island and having to do some quests and or an arena fight....................though, knowing me, that is prbably from a different game all together, haha !! Bye for now. Steve.
  11. Thankyou for replies. I love it, because the more map I explore, the more quests I find ! Groovy. Steve.
  12. Hi. Another daft question by me..................yeah I know, hehe ! Once I finish silver and move into gold, will my world dicovered total reset to zero ? I hope not. Thanks in advance for info. Steve.
  13. Hey there. I bought myself a horse today, and quite frankly was shocked and dissapointed ! Ok, I was pleased at the speed which I can now travel around the map, but, everything else is awful. I did not notice that I lost all my buffs and was puzzled as to why I was loosing so much health in combat. Why o' why can't we have our buffs active whilst on horse back ?! Secondly, as soon as I climbed aboard my horsie, I loose all 5 of my CA's !! What the........... One of the stats you see at the horse trader is the affect on CA's, which is kinda ironic. So, other than to speed movement around the world, the horse, IMHO, is more of a libility than a help. Not only that, but I paid ~400,000 for the horse and could only get ~21,000 back when I sold the darn thing back to the dealer. What a con. And they say that car dealers are ruthless, lol ! Hope I haven't hurt the feelings of any horse lovers out there (looks warily for Pevil !) But, you can keep yer horsie and I'll leave 'em munching grass ! Steve.
  14. Hi. When you hover your curser to bring up the bonus overview in-game, how do you view page 2 ? I want to be able to check on some of my stats and can't work out how to see the second page. Sorry if this has been asked before, but I would really appreciate any tips. Many thanks. Steve.
  15. Thanks for the responses everyone. Good to know that it is a known bug and not me being stoopid ! I hope the guys can fix this, as I want to see just how many quests I can actually complete. Bye for now. Steve.
  16. Thanks for the ideas Knuckles, but sadly nothing works.
  17. Hiya. I'm playing Sacred 2 with the Ice & Blood add-on & the CM patch. I'm playing a Shadow Warrior on the shadow campaign. The quest is The Usurer in the Old Naval Port in Thylysium. I did the first part, where you have to collect his money from inside the house which he is stood next to. No problem with that. He says that I can collect the rest of his money for him and walks off. The problem is, that when I follow the grey circle to the next part of that quest , I go to the next property and all looks fine from outside the house, but when I enter the building, the roof dissapears and the guy is floating way up in the air ! I can't communicate with him at all, so can't progress the quest. I have logged the game out and back in but to no change. Any idea's or shall I have to just forget this quest ? Cheers for now. Steve.
  18. Many thanks for you time my friends, but.....................YAY !!! "Ahem" I have managed to get the game going. I told my virus checker to allow the game, revoked the game keys again, restarted, and boom...........it worked. Thank goodness. Only trouble is, that it took sooooo long to sort, that I now have to go to work, haha ! I'll have to wait till tomorrow morning to play. Thankyou very much indeed for trying to help me. Very much appreciate your time. Bye for now, and I'll be back with 101 questions real soon, lol ! Steve.

  20. Hi everyone. Just bought a second hand copy of Sacred 2 Gold edition. couldn't find a new one anywhere. Installed it on my Vista pc. Patched to V2.65.2.0. Restarted pc. Clicked on desktop icon that the game made, but it won't start. Just get writting on black screen ending with game manager or something. Downloaded the CMpatch, hoping this might sort it, but same thing with now a different picture on the black background and red writting rather than yellow. Same words. Searched through loads of stuff here, and decided to download the revoke tool. But this only recognises the Sacred 2 key, and not the Ice & Blood key. No idea why. Anyway, after hours of trying, I'm hoping that some kind soul might have an idea of how I can actually play the game I have bought ?! Here's hoping. Steve.
  21. Wow, some great feedback there guys. Many thanks for all your words of wisdom. LL does have a visual effect on the PS3, which is a nice touch. You see a gold coloured line of death leading to your rapidly dying enemy. Lightning towers, yep, can't touch them on PS3 with blowpipe, but I have managed to get by with just ignoring them so far. Playing this game on the PS3 is a lot of fun, but in truth, there is no match to the pc. This game on the pc is 10 out of 10 IMHO. I have just upgraded my blowpipe, and the new one doesn't have LL, so I miss that, but I'll keep an eye out for things to socket or rings. IIRC, it isn't a good idea to go down all 3 lines of CA ? There are some nice things in Voodoo, but I was thinking of sticking to Hunter & Weaver aspects. I'm just hoping this is correct ? Dust Devil, hmmm, maybe I should have another look at that. Especially if it helps on bosses. On the PS3 you have to switch between 2 lots of action slots. Maybe I should think about a bow for slot 2 ? Hmmm, tough choice. Higher damage or higher speed................. One thing I had forgotten was how much time you agonise over item choices !? Whenever I come to upgrade my items, I fret over whether I can live without xyz so that I can have a higher abc, if you know what I mean ? I sometimes take ages at the merchant, because I can't decide between, say, 2 helmets ! Thanks again for all you have posted. What a fantastic community we have here. All the best, Steve.
