  2. Yes indeed, damage on top, armor on bottom. These bars represent the values that the enemy possesses, the same as when you look at your own character's tooltips. It is also reiterated in the Last Opponent Window: In this case we see the Sakkara inflicts 230 damage, about 50/50 physical/fire. It is armored against physical, magic, fire, and poison, being most resistant to fire, and most vulnerable to the absent element (ice).

  3. Greetings! I'm sure it could be viable, though the magic staff exploit introduced in I&B is fixed. This bug caused every thing on the screen to be hit simultaneously when staves were used with Darting Assault. Correct. They always shoot magic projectiles now. These projectiles are still subject to attack vs. defense values like any other weapon. For skill purposes, they do not count as ranged weapons like bows, etc. (EDIT: They do gain increased projectiles from mods though). Sinister Predator works for staves, because in EE I changed the buff to affect all weapon

  4. Hey @Andrasael, pretty short term solution but should do it for now: I mirrored the file NegativeOne shared to my server - that should not be blocked in your region, hopefully ;) With that fix you will see the OpenNet button in the multiplayer menu again which will allow you to play (assuming your CM Patch is 160 Hotfix on game version 2.65.1, older versions may work with self hosted servers, but I am not sure about it as I never tested it).

  5. Hello. This is a basic game mechanic. You will only get partial levels from reading runes, once you level the combat art too high. This is what the in-game term "highest combat art level without penalty" means. This ceiling can be raised by learning the appropriate aspect focus skill (in this case, you need to level up the Death Warrior Focus skill). What's happening is that as you level up your character, this penalty also decreases, so that is why you see the combat art level slowly increasing as you play.

  8. Hey all, first post - so let me know if it's in the wrong section. Started playing Sacred 2 (CM1.6 + EE) again and started with Int Dryad, loosely following Viper's guide from way-back: http://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php?/topic/10100-the-dual-wield-int-staff-nature-dryad/ Since a lot has changed since then due to I&B/CM/EE, I have a couple of questions that I hope a kind soul could help me with: Do you think that kind of build can still be viable? Do I understand it correctly, that Magic Staves are now always ranged but don't count as a ranged weapon?

  9. Hy steinerrr, I´m also a big fan of your Survival-Mod. So there is one thing, I´d not understand about it. If I activate it and play for 2 h and suddenly die because some Elite troops hit me to death, the game is saving automatically and me (High Elf) is going back at some "save point". So, and now all the Enemies are abruptly not 10 or more levels above my own level. No no no, they are the same level like me ?! In addition my states like damage with my staff or spells are reduced. From 2500 fireball to 2340 dmg. Pls coud your give me some advice because I´m tired of u

  16. It all seems fine, five of my characters got to level seven already in the short time I've been using the mod. I love all the changes done. Music and portraits installed, which really makes a wonderful change. UI is awesome, much better quest log colors, etc. Much easier to read. Really enjoying all the changes. This is excellent work. One issue I had is I like to play more zoomed in but with the enemy aggro doubled, I had to zoom out because they were attacking from all over, detecting me behind hills, etc. Sure, made it more difficult and hectic, my Dryad died three times trying

  17. Thanks! You can always back up the save file and then try it in EE. Starting a new difficulty level is a good way to avoid any quest-related bugs from the migration. However you may still have re-rolled bonuses on normal/magic/rare tier items. There is another very rare bug where combos and the Divine Gift become unusable for legacy characters. This is the main reason I say back him up first, before you risk anything. This bug would be apparent immediately if it occurred.

  18. Feather -> Anubis One of the roles of Anubis was as the "Guardian of the Scales." The critical scene depicting the weighing of the heart, in the Book of the Dead, shows Anubis performing a measurement that determined whether the person was worthy of entering the realm of the dead (the underworld, known as Duat). By weighing the heart of a deceased person against Ma'at (or "truth"), who was often represented as an ostrich feather, Anubis dictated the fate of souls. Souls heavier than a feather would be devoured by Ammit, and souls lighter than a feather would ascend to a he

  19. As far as finding them naturally, you get the same way you'd get any rare 2h sword. They're just more rare since they only come in rare and unique tier. I guess we could add a Download button to the wiki page, since I did upload a grab-bag chest of random rare 2h lightsabers a while back:

  24. jiggly cheesecake -> De gustibus non est disputandum. You can't discuss about taste (only talk). We prefer a base from thin yeast dough and a cover from a mix of Quark, Schmand, eggs, potato stark, salt, oil and sugar. Because 'variatio delectat' (doing lot of variants is more fun) the kids can add on the big plate their own stuff: pure, raisins, rhubarb (ripe now), cherries (not the time, just blossoms right now), Waldmeister (master of the woods, woodruff), ....3

  27. Sorry for being a little late here or commenting later on at this guide. As a recent Inquisitor player (really started spamming him since early 2020 when pandemic hit and we had to stay home) I have to admit this is a nice build overall and pretty much on point for my taste of play. Still remember I've had not long ago a pretty similar style (was using the Soul Reaver buff instead of Doppelganger, which I left as a stand alone spell) and was one piece away from completing the Disgraced Gods set... all until I took a one-hit-knockout from the dragon champs on the Seraphim Islands.

  28. Guys and Girls, Greetings all! Long time no see Since it's 2021 year and I have a new interest in Sacred 2 got few questions on multiplayer side of PC version, since my ps 3 gone with and years gone I want to ask you how I can play for multiplayer? I gor gold edition of it and got CM patch also. The main question is - how to get files which you upload to dropbox or mediafire, because in Russia we got blocked at those sites, so we cannot go for them. Sincerely Andrasael.

  31. Welcome to DarkMatters, Garry. Regarding the camera bobbling when entering edifices, caves, dungeons and the like, you may want to uncheck the box "Camera Collision." This will eliminate the automatic top-down view. Also, by adjusting the sliders, you may be able to secure a setting that you find more to your liking. I play on a 44" 4K TV and in 4K as well.

  33. Unfortunately, I don't play Sacred 2 on the OLED. I use a 43" 4K monitor to play Sacred 2, that being my gaming mouse/keyboard setup system. Titan Quest Anniversary Edition just came out with a public beta that supports native controller, so that got moved to my PC using on 75" OLED, because it is a recliner with controller setup. Can't use mouse/keyboard there except for kicking off games, etc. Not complaining, Sacred 2 looks great on a 43" 4K and just being able to play at that resolution is amazing. It looks really awesome. I saw all the complaints about Windows 10 and Sacred 2, b

  34. I went for Kha-Beleth as well, I find it the best in terms of aspect-utility. As for the weapon I personally prefer Heridon Jade Saber since it gives +all combat arts, -regen time, +chance of finding special items as well as +damage physical (and GoW is full physical damage). This coupled with a Stalworth Safeguard that provides a lot of resistance.

  36. Comment from our third: 'It is like LEGO. Lot of elements for house building are close to the ones in LEGO. Instead real life battles with monsters (your siblings) for needed parts you have to fight monsters.' To be fair she has to finish a school project with LEGO mindstorm (self balancing robot moving on a single ball) and the twins (4 in a row game) too.

Was the favourite song of the german national soccer team in 2012 and played a lot at public viewing the european championships games. Young kids would call it Fantasy knowing nothing but corona. The band name translates as :the dead trousers The title as: days like these

  42. Because I am organizing my private projects time very poorley - again, even though I know how lame that sounds in repetition after such a long time, I can only say sorry for that. Instead of getting stuff just done somehow, I tend to do various things at once and cling to completing neglectible details, which in the end, especially since the everyday life started to consume more and more of my time, just led to way too many things staying unfinished and even sometimes got out of my mind and sight, like those instructions I wanted to prepare for you. So instead of other awkward promises - I jus

Today our female Leonberger finished its training to keep her away. Luckily as soon as the dog pushes her with its nose Mara turns from climbing to playing with the dog. Noone knows why her grandgrandma from father side was named Marada, but she is named after her and another grandgrandma: Marada Runhild Runhild is germanic for she who defends (hild) her family with Wisdom (runes) Marada was a tribe of fierce oriental fighters,

  45. lookout -> kid room Our house was build centuries ago. In Napoleon times a small tower was added planed for a never installed semaphore telegraph. The tower was later used as lookout for forest fires. We use it as a kid play room with a wonderful view. But for sleeping it is too hot in summer and too cold in winter.

  46. I hate virus's. When I was close to 14 I was growing a lot. Short after the summer breaks I got high fever. As a young kid I was immunized against measles, small poxs, ... so the docs didn't know what got me. Months later it turned out it was a measle variant from northern africa/mediterran someone in the class brought home from vacances. The virus was worst for people in the growing age and I grew real fast. So I turned into a monkey. Arms and torso grewing normally, legs not. Instead becoming 2m+ I stopped at 192cm, with an arm-span of 220cm with 17. The arm-span went to 230cm with swim tra
