You rely on potions too much, get Summon Ghost to level 5 and he will help ALOT and get Charm too, you can charm one of those Imp Shamans or Imp Healers and they will do a great job too smile

It seems like you miss out quite a lot of skill points from mind read. As warrior, raw damage is the main priority, therefore weapon mastery is the 1st that need to be max out when possible. When your base damage increase, your skill damage will follow as well. And as warrior, you need to soak up damage. Therefore your resistance on various damage need to be prioritize. At your current level, if you manage to get all 3 resistance to 40%+ range, you shouldnt had problem to survive fjords. So your point investment into vit and spirit should be stop by now for the moment, where you need to concentrate more into the 3 other stats, str, int and dex. Getting good armor with good defensive stats can help a lot as well. My rush and whirlwind are both rank 1 till end game, where I only put few more points on them with extra skill points. Bleed will be a good skill to invest for warrior. Put some points to thousand strike for taking down tougher mobs.

If all skills listed above is all you have and you dont have any more spare skill points, you will seriously be in tough situation later. I finish the game at lvl35, and when I reskill before end game, I regain back around 60+ to 70+ skill points. What you can do now is reskill and dont put points into wisdom 1st for now. Reduce both rush attack and whirlwind to 1. Max your weapon mastery, follow by bleed and regenerate. Get 1 point into thousand strike and some points into mana efficiency. Get 1 or 2 points into demon summon and firewall, but I dont use firewall much. With your creature and summons, you should able to face obstacles in fjords without much problem with appropriate gears. Try to get higher rank hp potion recipe from merchant for potion brewing.

What we provided you here is merely suggestions. Go make a save before reskill and try out different strategies and builds which suitable to your playing style. As long you can proceed on without much trouble, then you are considered as found your own survival way in the game.

Someone else said that even with Mindreading on level 1, you should still end the game at level 34-35 (which is the usual; highest I've seen reported is 38). I don't have the game yet (will today), so I'm not sure how much practical effect boosting Mindreading has.

Mind read someone for 1k exp and you are in debt for 1k exp. when you do a quest got 1200 xp you pay off the 1k exp debt and gain the 200 left on the end, hope i helped.

You can get quests from mind reading, that you wouldn't have gotten otherwise, or alternate solutions for some quests that give a better result. You can also get shortcuts for things you could have done on your own anyway, and sometimes useless musings. Generally speaking lower cost mind reads tend to be useless, while higher cost ones are more valuable. You can get useless stuff even from high cost mind reads (such as equipment that doesn't match your playstyle), but generally speaking it should average out as a net benefit.

You can save up before mind read to decide yourself whether the content is worth wasting the exp or not. There are a lot high cost mind read which actually provide items which totally useless. And when you reach later game, even mind read some stupid merchant for discount also will cost you few k exp, so it will be hard by just judging through the amount of exp needed for mind read.

Wow lvl38, I bet that guy had extremely high investment on the skill wisdom. Else I dont think is possible.

I find most mindreads are very good! Some expensive mindreads gives "new insights"! (skillpoints or statpoints!)

I haven't do all quests (missed the bandit quests in Brocken Valley + vigor Mortis for Naberius too) and to the end I have level 35 + more than half the XP , so I'm exactly level 35,5 wink

That's not to bad if I know I missing some quests!
And I've missing 5 archievements too!

Missing few quests in the early days wont impact your level at all, as those quest merely providing few hundred exp as reward only. Majority will capable to reach 34 to 35 with completion of all areas after the battle tower fight.

Ohh I guess its mana efficiency. Its an important skill which need to max no matter what class or playing style you apply to your character. The revenge aura should deflection if I not mistaken, which basically is an useless skill. Not recommended.

mindread works with a debt so if you mindread someone for say 33 exp you have to pay it offf then continoue lvling but the good thing about it is kill exp os dependent on your lvlso if you get 100 exp from kill something when you lvl goes down to 70 mindreading really doesnt affect you because of the kill exp going doown thing because it wont until you lvl so by the time you lvl youll have paid off the debt and more exp in the long run Hope that helped

Question #1

on mana efficiency, its says it decreases the amount of mana you use for your spells an whirlwind, does it work for any other warrior skills like thousand strikes? or any of the ranger arrow shots?

Question #2

which spell is better for crowed control, whirlwind or confusion?

Question #3

does "destruction" ( increase magic attack damage) only work for mage spells or any warrior, ranger, spell that does damage as well?

Question#4

Whats the best resistances to have, melee, ranged, or magic, and should you try to max out only one of them or spread them out?

Question #5

Go's along with question #4, How much body, reflex, will, do you need to not get stomped on? and do you need to max out one or spread them out as well?

I am warrior built

I don't think I checked mana usage on any warrior skills, but I assume it does. It cuts the mana needed to summon your creature.

I used Whirlwind a bit; never tried Confusion.

Destruction just works on magic spells, AFAIK.

The best resistance to have is whatever your opponent is currently attacking you with. I kept them relatively even, but at various points in the game one could be significantly higher or lower than the others, depending on equipment I found, etc.

I kept strength and dexterity relatively even. I boosted intelligence for the magic resistance (and indomitable will), but my next character I'm going to see if I can get away with neglecting intelligence.
