  1. I understand. It was about a character skin to be honest. Something that is out of my reach. That is why I asked. I shall give it a try one day. Hope you stay here this time and dont dust off for the next six months.
  2. Well, I am glad that there is no infighting. I must admit that I had some doubts now and then. As I mentioned already, I will give credits to everyone involved, does not matter how much. And before you make it finally back to your rock Ysendra, Id like to throw some files after you with the plea to take a professional look at them. I am too clumsy for it. PM me if you got some time left.
  3. So, I used Ufos Hero Editor to create a Cannon Dwarf level 40 quickly. Difficulty is Silver. Cannon Blast is only used as boss killer. I made a level 80 Cannon Blast combo. That would be 2 runes each level in theory. No problem and realistic. Desert Dragon goes down after two combos. No sets, uniques, or special gear were used. While I was fighting my way through the Goblin flats, I had a lot of fun with the Dwarf. Just as you. He is definitely the next on my list, as soon as I got enough of the Vampire. I want to give Dwarven Armor a chance + Entrench. Combined with a high level Hard Hit combo it will surely work, but I need to find, or buy some special weapons first that cut through the Dragons defense. As MetaL said, you have to know the Dragons soft spot. I agree that currently the amount of builds are a bit limited for a single character. I have difficulties to variate my Vampires since they depend on certain uniques. Rings, mostly. Currently I got two viable builds, the rest are either tiny variants, or not viable. But I believe as soon as sets get a rework and class related uniques too, the amount of possible builds will increase. Time and a lot of testing is necessary, who am I telling that, and it is of course a matter of motivation. Since I have cursed the game more than one time, I roughly understand how big reborn really is. EDIT Tried Cannon Dwarf vs Ice Dragon. No problem.
  4. Maybe, just another method is necessary. I turned all runes I have found into Combat Kick, learned them all and made a combo. Works very well. Runes can be farmed in vast numbers between Silver Creek and Porto Vallum. (The nameless settlement.) Since kill nr. 25 drops a rune guaranteed, you just have to make sure nr. 25 is a boss. Then you get up to 5 runes. A Combo Master is directly nearby and a trader too. One hour of gameplay should be adequate. I think that a certain knowledge of your hero is necessary. What are your heros soft spots and what are you good at? Of course I can try to enforce a certain gameplay vs powerful enemies at all costs, but it might end painful. IMHO Dragons are simply a test of your current build. I will try a Dwarf today. Silver difficulty, cannon combo level 30-50, widd sockets, critical jewelry. Lets see how it goes.
  5. ALK, dont you think you go in too hard? Played unmodified Sacred for quite a while until Thorium introduced Reborn. Since then I play it. Ok, the very early versions were a bit clunky, but it became better with each version. And the mod isnt finished yet. I always keep in mind that there is no source code and the team digs through assorted code. I believe in reborn. It will be pretty good when it is finished one day. The Vampire performs well against Dragons using Blood Bite and reanimated Wolf. Later, when you got your specialized weapons ready, you skip all that and go in with Hard Hit or Combat Kick. Melee vs Dragon adds some flavor. Speedy fingers are useful, though. PS Did you try criticals + widd + as-high-as-possible cannon blast combo? Back in the day I read that cannon blast does unresistable damage.
  6. An import is not necessary. Just start the game with reborns own .exe and have fun. It is a bit rougher though, and many bugs have been fixed already. Arles Tgaws Net wont cause double damage anymore for example. Btw, meet Bel, on the way to Bravewall currently.
  7. Riding Vampire is enormous fun. I would even say it is the most flexible, viable build. The reborn mod, Flix has mentioned, is absolutely recommended.
  8. Oh, ok. Thanks for the heads up, lacr! Learning never ends.
  9. Let me add a puzzle piece to the list. Yagyu is a quite famous and often used surname after the lone wolf and cub series came out. The hideous, treacherous Yagyu clan vs Okami Itto, the murderer for hire.
  10. Well, yeah. I had something like that in mind. Too bad. Oh, btw do you give me permission to snatch some of your hero screenshots for my project? *(Night.Wolfe gave me her ok already )
  11. Ahm, I dont want to be nosy but, are you Pevil from PevilsPlace? I visited your website more than one time.. (..and am still looking for the Mystdale Golden Warhorse.) Looks like the old guard returns one by one. Good to see you here!
  12. level 50 is the last skill you get. You can use Ufos Hero Editor to change skills if something went wrong somehow. Trading is quite useful, but it is better to create a special trading character, a dwarf for example. He can pick the Trading skill very very early. After your trader bought the necessary gear, swap it in a MP session and give it to your main char. The skill itself lets you generate tons of money which can be useful if you work with the take-gold-instead-of-health modifier. Depending on the amount of points you have put into Trading, the merchants offer better gear, sometimes 1-3 yellow items. Rings and Amulets are your best bet. You cant buy uniques, or set items. There is a special mission that generates two traders that got new gear every time you talk to them. Braverock Castle, right in the middle of the market place. It works in Porto Vallum too, there is an abducted trader in a cave near the river. Just bring him home and talk to him. His counterpart is a few meters to the south.
  13. Outstanding work, Xrystal! Lets see when the first recorded MP sessions arrive on youtube.
  14. Starting skills can be changed by editing the settings.cfg. In a limited way. Picking level restricted skills is not possible. Ufos Hero Editor cant help here. Besides, you will have access to all hero related skills at level 50, that is not that far away. Assigning non-class related skills to your hero, like Vampirism to a Battle Mage, does not makes sense. Ufos tool is useful to test a build quickly, or a certain set, that is true. It is also useful to rescue a screwed up hero. Happens now and then when it is your first run. I suggest to get a guide and to build your hero step by step. After a while you will drop everything and go your own way.
