Transform Into Vampire cut short

Recommended Posts

So, for some reason "Transform into Vampire" used to last for at least 2 minutes, but now, all of a sudden during a new underworld campaign, about several hours into the campaign, my TiV has been cut short by several magnitudes. It only lasts for roughly 30 seconds now. I have not been changing gear or eating any runes or anything. It has just cut short on its own, during an escort main quest. 

Are there any known bugs for this?

Okay, so TiV is even shorter now. 15 seconds.

It feels like someone is trolling my game :lol:

Sacred was always one of the tougher games...  lol many times in HC servers with others, especially when losing a toon it felt like the gods had all rolled against me :4rofl:

I wish I'd spent time with the vampire, I was mostly seraphim and daemon, but the Vampire's CA's were so gruesome and cool-looking...

:oooo:

:spider:

I have found the problem.

It seems that having all your weapon slots equipped with gear does this. I only use the additional slots for extra storage, but they were filled with 2h swords and shields also with 1h swords.

At first I thought that maybe the "bloodlust" skill was glitching, from equipped armor which gives points into bloodlust.

But I am more inclined to believe the weapon slots being filled with gear did this. Though as I am not entirely sure, as I cannot actually see how the game is "thinking" inside. Clearing my additional weapons slots and removing/re-equipping armor did the trick. It could have been fixed by any of those two things I did, or a combination of both together.

To be honest, at first I thought this was a CPU problem. Given the age of the game and other factors, I thought that maybe some kind of timer or variable within the games programming, or engine (have no idea how the game is actually coded), was not calculating correctly, or calculating too fast.

I have a ready installation of windows XP on older hardware, just for older games. And setting the affinity to a single core on this older system didn't change anything at all.

Update:

It still happens, but much less frequently.

Could there happen to be, by any chance, a debuff spell or CA the enemy is using to transform me back into human again? I know Sacred 2 has debuffing.

Alright, so I figured it out,

While I increase the CA normally by eating runes, the CA within the combo stays at the level when it was originally made! You have to update the combo, as you update your CA.
