Hi, I got a problem.

I've killed and looted Concelhaut in patch 2.00, but after updated to 2.01, there is no Concelhaut's Draining Missiles in Ironclapsed Grimoire.Hope it be fixed in the next patch.

the spell was not added retroactively. You'll need to give yourself the Grimoire once again via console commands if you want to get that spell in your current play through.


If you are concerned about disabling achievements, you can install the IE Mod to cheat without disabling them. You can then uninstall the mod, but I'd suggest keeping it because it's so awesome.

loading times do seem shorter and save screen and quick save are a lot faster... love the control over party members... individual scout mode is very cool.... UI is clearer...


i havent played more than 3-4 hours of game time so i cant really say about any bugs and i didnt start a serious game till after 2.01 patch. The patch was already being discussed when i purchased poe... so i just did some messing around till the patch was released....


thanks to all involved in this undertaking of a great old school feel game....
