  1. I assume that given your (low) level you don't have Ancient Magic? If you're going against an ice resistant boss then AM should prove more helpful than casting Expulse Magic (though EM is always helpful).
  2. Custom settings should work on the same game version, regardless of where it's distributed. If it's the same game version (Gold, 2.65) then the files are the same.

    Stop now, you're making me want to install the game again to play the mod!

    Ventar's model is really really cool! The other two are based on the Sakkara demon, but is the face the same? Curious about that bit. The difference between the first two is just the colour scheme then? Ventar is boss-level and the other two are elites?

    You have Balrogs in your mod?!

    Yeah, CAs that need targeting don't work as intended when they're the second one in a combo. Shadow Step included.

    What are you eating

    I made some reductions with balsamic vinegar and fruit in the past as well. But those I've made differently, more to serve with grilled chicken breast for instance. I remember making one with lime, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and something else I can't really remember right now, and it was indeed syrup-like because of the sugar reduction. When served cold over the grilled meat, which tends to get a bit dry on the mouth, it gives it a nice fresh and sweet and sour touch. Haven't done that in a long time though. The thing with the coconut milk and the chutney is that is makes for a better cream on veggies than plain soy cream, which just looses texture and volume. I used to mix the curry with the cream out of the stove, but doing it like this helps the seasoning get tastier, and the texture of the chutney doesn't dissolve as fast as the cooked soy cream dries out after cooling down. So it gives it another taste and look. Even my mom asked me to send her a bit, ha ha. Now that was rich!

    Well, that "soup" is a chutney. I used to just drop soy cream on the veggies, but one day I wanted to do curry with coconut milk and while doing my research online I stumbled about the term chutney. So it's basically a reduction of fruit, coconut milk and spices. I used curry madras, spicy cayenne, ground black pepper and peach (I've done it before with both pineapple and mango, all of them work very nicely). That's what's on the first pic, which is then turned over into the wok and serves as the veggie's cream. I stir-fried the veggies, first with garlic, spicy cayenne, carrot, sweet red pepper and shiitake mushrooms. I recently bought a new brand of soy sauce and it's great, barely any oil in it and a lot of flavour, so a bit of olive oil and soy sauce for stir-frying the veggies. After those were softened I added the softer more fast baking veggies, courgette and eggplant, both from the backyard (thanks father in law!). Those get mushy very fast so it's just a bit of heat, stir a couple of times and on goes the chutney. Left it boil a bit and voilá, served with white rice (not sure if basmati or thai, but both work very well).

    Went all in with the veggie mood earlier this week, this was the end result:

    Try using Divine Protection, even without Warding Energy Lore it's a CA worth using as long as you can modify it.

    Newbie Help

    1. It's a bonus that grows the more you spend time without dying, making your enemies grow in level, which also gives you the chance to get drops from higher levels than your own. So if you have the proper skills and a good SB you'll get to wear better equipment. Also the SB value makes your attributes grow, so the more the merrier. 2. True, you should always do that. As far as your progress goes, you're level 5 and you haven't chosen a single skill? The agenda here is to get the skills on the spot, which means that as soon as you're able to unlock a new skill you should populate it. Same goes for attribute points, place them at each level.

    Dryad Attack Speed

    I believe that in CM Patch they still get three times as much XP as your toon, which was changed in the lates EE by Flix to a 1-1 ratio. I think Dimitrius did the same in his Addendum. You could get the unique mount as early as when you arrive at the Orcish Byway, if you head over to Artamark's Gate and do the quest to get it. Then when you get to The Jungle you can purchase the Elite mount for added bonuses.

    Ask Flix, but I'm not sure if it's hardcoded or not. He should know though.

    Sacred 2 Community patch 1.60 help

    Yes, it's removed in the patch. It's all in its changelog.

    Been ages since I played

    Yep, once you finish Silver difficulty you can jump onto Gold, then Platinum and Niobium. Bronze is starter's difficulty but doesn't unlock anything else. There are a lot of char guides here on the forum, many made with Ice & Blood in mind so it's probably better to get a jump start from one of those. You can grind to Lv. 200 but it takes a lot of time and effort, but then again the game is vast and full of content. I'd advise you to install CM Patch 1.60 because it makes the game stable (zero to barely any CTD) and does an enormous ammount of corrections to bugs. Can't answer about Discord though.

    Flix's Guitar Videos

    Actually the last time I've listened to Pantera a few months ago I jammed this album. You should totally jam Cemetary Gates off of the debut, great tune!

    Little help please with auto attack on PC

    Yeah, it's a world of difference when you get to that point. Try using regen per hit with weapon-based CAs.

    Flix, you've done it again!

    Little help please with auto attack on PC

    It depends on the CA you're using, if it's a weapon-based CA most of the time you just need to keep right-click pressed the same way you'd keep left-click pressed for continuous attack. Then hover the mouse pointer over the different targets. But if the CA is spell-based then you need to click-release-click again for acquiring new targets.

    Oh, ok then.

    It looks awesome indeed, but why six enhancements? I didn't even know that you could have more than the usual three.
  24. Hey guys. So here's the deal, I noticed over the past months that my time to play has become more limited and I usually have to choose between playing games or sleeping. I'll admit that I've never been a casual player so I always tend to immerse (loose) myself in the game I'm playing, so I tend to overstay with it and sleep less than I should. But I've been lacking sleep a bit too much and I've even done a break from games late at night . Thing is, sometimes I have like an hour or so to kill, and I'd love to have something I could play while hearing a record or two, but I've searched and searched and I can't find anything that I really like. Opinions? Something cool to play but that doesn't require that I play it three hours in row to feel like I've gone somewhere. Being able to listen to music while I'm playing it would be a huge bonus, since my time there is also more limited nowadays. So if I could combine both it'd be great.

    Need a new (or old) game

    Yeah, zilch. But thanks for the effort.
