  1. I did not use aloth much, but I did do his quest. I told him to chill out and accept hearing his personal business in public at the sanitarium. what do I have to do to have the ending where he does not join leaden key?
  2. I got this spellbinding combusting wounds ring. it does not show up in abiltiies like the ring for arcane dampener does. it does not show up when equipped in PC's character sheet like other spellbind items. only me? or does combusting flames just happen automatically?
  3. lets see. 1) Rinatto is inside the bar, even though I used deception to run him out of town. 2) while walking, not in battle, my party went into combat and instantly killed a noble by the celestial hotel. no one seemed to notice. then my group tried to attack the head monk but I stopped them. I saved game and restarted. no random murder yet. 3) not a bug, but Serel fought off bad guys, he barely lived, and then he says the same thing he said before the end of act 2? seemed not-immersive. surely the fact that he lived through a mob, fought that mob off, and saw me help him would merit new dialogue.
  4. Aedrin's Wrecker is in endless paths level 10. needs high mechanics. look around!
  5. So I saw a pair of boots with consecrated ground. any class can wear them. But when I equipped them, the spell did not show up in the characters hud. for example, when I have added other spellbind items, they show up by the talents. is this bugged?
  6. Maybe a better player than I could make a good melee rogue, but it is hard to do so if you want to use an attack to sneak up on them. they instantly go for you. one thing to do would be to have your other characters melee first, then engage after they attack. the goal with a rogue is to always attack "when the target is Blinded, Flanked, Hobbled, Paralyzed, Petrified, Prone, Stuck, Stunned or Weakened, as well as when any target is struck within two seconds of combat starting." if you melee, you can also use the invisible thing twice per encounter. that should help a melee rogue out. personally, I have used my high sneak this way 1) scout. find enemy. 2) array my party a bit behind me, or by a chokehold. 3) get as close as I can, and lay a trap (if it is a big toughie) and then sneak with my arbalest. 4) run so that the hostile triggers trap. 5) run to party, who are now all engaging the hostile. by the time they get near the part, my ranger has wounded it from range, and my priest has interdicted the area. often the first hostile is dead by the time the mob hits my party, so I use rogue or other means to hobble another target, and take down that one. I try to hobble first and save my blind for the hostile that is the toughest. blind is great. All that to say that I go with medium armor for my rogue, though I think a really finessed hardcore gamer would take light armor, enchant it, and play with lower dr but faster reaction.
  7. It all depends. The one thing with rogues is you want to max criticials, and you want to do a lot of damage with that critical. given that rogues do lots of crit, borresaine converting crits to stuns is really good. I would pick borresaine for RR. but I personally like the arbalest I found on level 11 or 12 of endless od nua
  8. I am not sure why, but it took 11 for me. I had 10, did not see it, rested to get plus 1 bonus, got it.
  9. So if anyone knows a place online or in their own experience I would love to know where all the food/item vendors are. I have found mr. gemstone who sells diamonds in and the ingredient vendor in your stronghold. But I really want some cocoa! (and knowing where other stuff is would be nice. anyone find cocoa? or can list food vendors?
  10. My take: 1) Ayn was very clever. she thought a lot. She explored new ideas. I like that in a person. I think she and I would have fun sparring intellectually. she is not a moron. 2) However, she was a "sophmore". Which means literally wise-fool. She was one of those people who think big, have great ideas. But she never moved on to the next level. what is that level? In getting a master's I learned the importance of curiosity and humility. There are far more brilliants minds than me, and though I have to decide for myself, I do not fall into the folly of dismissing other people's work/data/stats just because I like mine more. Ayn lacked humility. She never took seriously the idea that she could be wrong. She had the "I am the smartest person in the room" syndrome. I know I am not the smartest. And knowing that actually allows me to learn tons more than she ever could. A story to illustrate: Ever argue with someone who has no humility? They don't listen to what you say, they only prepare a defense against it. I once argued with a new friend about gun control. I am a liberal, he was right wing. He argued that if I think the first amendment is so sacred, why not the second? Ayn would not have listened to someone who disagreed with her. I did. I realized he was right. I said, "you are totally right. I really like gun control but I now agree that gun control is unconstituional." He almost fell out of his chair. I said, "I don't debate, I discuss. And I can change my mind." This conservative friend of mine then started to really LISTEN when I talked. because I had listened to him we both had better discussions and we both learned and changed our minds on things. He told me I re-defined what it means to be a christian for him. So we both changed. (side note: the issue of gun control is an example..so if you think I am wrong, fine that is not the point of the story. the point is Humility/listening) 3) she misunderstood how human selfishness works. if people were always Rationally selfish, and also working from decent intel/information then objectivism would work better. but we are frail. it don't work But people constantly do things that are not in their best interest. she assumes we will be good at being selfish when actually we actually do it pretty poorly. we do something because of impulse or fatigue that is not what we really want. If I was good at being selfish, I would exercise everyday for myself.
  11. So Hervy the druid is wearing armor that has DR of 10. and it has an added 3 reduction to pierce. but when he got hit by a pierce from a beetle, it said the DR he had was only 8. a) is the number just wrong data? or b) is some other factor lowering his DR? he had no negative effects on him. just confused.
  12. so I bought a cloak for fighters only that ups their constant recovery. called the cloak of tireless something,. but I don't see it added to the active effects on his character sheet. is it active but not showing up? or not working? is this a known bug?
