  1. Greetings! First of all, english is not my native language, so please forgive my spelling and/or grammar mistakes. I call myself Speedoom, because I had a battle mage named Speedom after Eminem's mindblowing part in Tech N9ne's track titled 'Speedom'. My concept with him was to level up as fast as possible, he was level 70 in 30 hours or so, I'm not sure about the time but it was fast enough for me. He was fun to play, but after I swapped my HDD for a SSD, Steam somehow killed him. And my other characters, of course. So it is in his memory. I play Sacred since 2006-2009, not sure when my best friend at the time introduced me to the game. Since then I introduced some of my friends and family members to the Sacred series, too. My goal on this forum is to fix Sacred's lore. I only consider Sacred Gold and Sacred 2 Gold as canon and I have an overall poor opinion on Deep Silver, but it's a rabbit hole I won't go down. I'm deep in the Elder Scrolls' lore/community, maybe those experiences will come in handy. Thank you for reading and have a good day!
  2. [ SACRED 2 STARTUP SOLUTION HERE SACRED 2 NOT WORKING SOLUTION HERE ] Hi everyone, I bought Sacred 2 (for the second time because deep silver.......) and finally began to play it at the end of 2018 and I figured out a solution on my own for the starting problem. I use Win10 64 bit. I went to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\redist then installed all three programs manually: - DXSETUP.exe in DirectX folder, - PhysX_9.somethingsomething.exe in PhysX folder and - vcredist_x86.exe in VC folder. I didn't need dxsetup and vcredist, but run them anyway. THEN I set the compatibility mode to Windows Vista. WHICH YOU DO SO: 1. go to ...Sacred 2 Gold\system 2. find sacred2.exe 3. right click on it, click PROPERTIES, go to compatibility mode, set to win vista but you can try win 7 too, press ok. Another strange problem is with Wi-fi connection, as I need to turn off wifi on my computer (2 clicks, so not much of a work) before starting the game. When it loads to main screen I simply alt+tab and enable wifi again and no problems. This game deserves love and this is the way you can love it even if it's a bit shy at the beginning. Cheers!

    Whats your fave build?

    Hi gogo, thank you for the warm welcome! :) I play Sacred since... 2009? Something like that. I always played it in single player, but I talked about it a lot with some of my friends and with my little sister too, to whom I introduced the game. So I know builds - but not with the names you mention them, I guess. My favourite Vampiress build's first priority is to conjure as many bats as possible and then the wolf companion. Skills are the ones with regen time reduction and the rest are like armor, agility, sword lore, I don't remember the others. This build is extremely fun to play, as you usually just stand in one place, summon new minions when needed and watch your confused foes perish. You probably know that Sacred 1 calculates your chance at finding runes like: Your Level x (an unknown number) - The Number of Runes You Used = %chance of getting runes out of monsters. So a level 50 Seraphim with 50 runes spent is going to loot more runes under an hour than a level 50 Seraphim with 100 runes spent. Figuring that out changed my early builds a lot, turning this mechanism of the game to my advantage allowed me to build my fav daemon: 1 rune on Flying Daemon, most of the runes on Hell sphere and some on blazing disc. With this method in mind, I could build a daemon with skills way abowe her level and so above her opponent's level. A 4-combination of high level Hell Spheres solves bosses just like Alexander the Great solved the Gordian Knot. All I needed was a good supply of yellow potions. Skills are all defensive with sword lore, so sword and shield combo protected my daemon further. I use this method in Sacred 2, but not sure if I need to.

    Whats your fave build?

    Sacred 2 all-def Seraphine with all runes spent for bfg and some for pelting strikes. Sacred 1 I’m experimenting with an unarmed gladiator build... well I beat up the DeMordrey dragon pretty easily. Fist of the gods are good for enemies who like running away, otherwise assault or whatever the name is. Points in strength, skills: constitution, armor and unarmed for now. Sadly, the BeeEffGee build isn’t that usefull like in Sacred 2, but there’s always a shard mage... until something hits him ONCE and he perishes. It’s fun on lower lewels, though.
