    Best of Ancaria

    Took me some time to gather the data and decide my favourite for every category. The Music Mod is fantastic, I think you deserve a special award! After a single complete playthrough with the mod installed, I'm certain that Sacred 2 is no longer whole without it, the enhancement is beyond expectation and the atmosphere in most regions is changed for the better. Your choices fit the surroundings and greatly flavour the gameplay; also, gaming veterans will experience nostalgia and melancholy for old titles. I believe the best tracks are those for the Swamp, they reflect the uniqueness of this region(perhaps the most original), the desperate existence of it's inhabitants and the horrors they have to face. As for contribution, it was not to individual items listed, but to the entire game. Seeing this flawed gem fixed and perfected convinced me to post this humble tribute.

  3. Here it is, only a sketch, at level 49 after completion of the campaign on bronze difficulty and exploration to the last corner of the gameworld. I followed it to the detail, including my own spreadsheet of skill points distribution(up to 75 and the possibilities beyond). http://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php?/files/file/630-rayna-the-exalted-warrior/

  6. Rayna the Exalted Warrior Version: Gold Edition 2.65.2 Community Patch 0150 Community Items Mod 1.2a Elite Mounts Mod 1.10 Flix’s Music Mod 1. Preamble: Why Rayna? First time I saw the Seraphim in Sacred 1 my mind associated her with the character Rayna Kapec in the Star Trek TOS episode “Requiem for Methuselah”. I believe them to be organic androids, their power comes from bio-engineered strength and advanced technology, and since they can’t age or die from natural causes, it’s the same person in both games. I wanted my Rayna to be roughly the same in Sacred 2: a fast melee fighter with protective spells and a balanced mix of skills. 2. Attributes & Skills: Are calculated for level 75, taking into account the points received as reward from the quests “Ancaria Airlines” and “Feed the Poor”. Willpower +76(+1 at every level) Vitality +26(+1 after level 50) Tactics Lore 75(kept with level until mastery) Exalted Warrior Focus 40 Armour Lore 40 Pole Arms 40 Enhanced Perception 1 Concentration 30 Toughness 30 Sword Weapons 30 Riding 10 Warding Energy Lore 2 3. Combat Arts, Modifications & Combos: I use only seven so they fit the available slots without ever changing them or bothering with combos. CA1 Pelting Strikes CA2 Soul Hammer CA3 Assailing Somersault CA4 Dashing Alacrity CA5 Divine Protection Buff1 Battle Stance Buff2 Cleansing Brilliance Modified in this order: Pelting Strikes Thrust/Focus/Precision Battle Stance Premonition/Drill/Retaliation Dashing Alacrity Bloodlust/Delay/Impatience Soul Hammer Wounding/Battering 4. Inventory, Item Modifiers & Mounts: Pole Arms, Two-handed Swords or regular Swords imbued with the four damage types, the fifth slot reserved to a ranged weapon(Energy Lance or Pistol). Armor sets suitable for this build: Megalcarwen’s Garments of Mutation Virtues of the Seraphim Impressions of Sophia Twilight of the Gods Niokaste’s Blade Dance Most useful item modifiers: +All Skills -Regeneration Time +Chance to halve regeneration time +Chance to evade(also by socketing Celestial Magic runes) +Chance to find valuables +Chance for critical hits +Experience per kill +Attack speed +Run speed +Visibility range Mounts: Charger(+Chance to evade) replaced by Unicorn Saber-toothed Tiger(-Regeneration Time: Exalted Warrior) replaced by Volcanic Tiger 5. Combat Strategy: Simple and obvious, nothing sophisticated here. Use efficiently the most damaging weapons while reducing CA regeneration time as much as possible. For defense, other than attributes & skills, use Battle Stance permanently, Divine Protection when needed and increase the chance to evade.
