Yeah exactly, when I exported Daemon and ran the no-mod launcher the Dragon was a piece of cake. And as you say, it is how it is because once discovered, that is once spawned, Dragon's stats remain the same no matter what. I know cuz this time I've made a save right before discovering D'Cay, and was able to test it out. ReBorn mod is the optimum difficulty and Veteran is once again impossible. And yes, I've been all the way back to north-west end of the map and back again since I met this fella.
At this point I seem to have that one choice of starting silver again OR, maybe there's a cheat of some kind allowing me to kill that bugger instantly, then continue with ReBorn mod?
About skill points: OMG I totally forgot about that!(as you guessed), oh it's been a long while.
About Combat Arts: Well do you mean, basically I should have just avoided all the other spells, except Descent and Infernal:) Or maybe even refrain from leveling those too? If I remember correctly I may have put just one point into all the others, just to check them out...
And when you talk about "farming better gear", I just don't see it happening, no matter how much time I spend looking for a better equipment.
Lastly, as I'm not really used to that kind of over the top gameplay; I wonder how much time should I spend on looting good gear along the way... doesn't seem like much of a fun to me. But hey, maybe that's what you actually do? What do I know?
Thank you guys so much, both of you. Looks like there's a real nice community here :))
