I've played Sacred 2 probably over 500 hours by now, mostly on the PS3. It's just the most fun to relax and mindlessly kill enemies for better loot and explore the world. I most love developing builds. I've tried so many!

 

My most successful character in that she was fun enough to play that I didn't get distracted by other toons was my Ranged Magic Coup high elf. So many ways to play that one. And I made her a bargainer, so she's spawned a host of more complex builds, hybrids, and so forth that use the overpowered All Skills on the PS3.

 

In playing all these characters who use a host of CAs, I got into Combos and Combat Discipline. I realized that combos are really fascinating because they can change the automation and behavior of spells and abilities. I have an inquisitor who I'm using with a main combo of Ruthless Mutilation, Levin Array, and Raving Thrust. This allows me to hold down the button until everything is dead instead pressing it once per cast like a spell.

 

Are there other things you only learn after playing for a huge amount of time?

Love your love for the game.  I think I was where you were...but for years, and when this game first came out.  The number of builds possible is almost endless, and for a single stand up game, there's ridiculous value.  For Sacre 2, my favorite was the Dryad...have you played with the dyad's blow pipe? I found zero travel time fascinating, and could never get tired of it.  The concept of pressing a button and multiple vectors of life leech and damage instantly spidering out from me and landing  upon a target would never fail to thrill me!!

I'm not quite sure it qualifies as finding something new but if you mean you are looking for something new how about "Hardcore". It adds a whole new way of playing and perhaps new builds for survivability.
