Hi Thief_Morich,

Do you mean the amount of hours you can play with <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" />?
--> depends if you solve every quest or not. I did, and I think I was busy for definitely 100 hours.

Or the total amount you can play in your entire life? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

[color:"green"] Well I mean is this game like Diablo or do you have millions of possibilities of playing it like they say in the manual because I only had it since 3 days and im only in Aleroth. It's normal for me, I do all the quest (without cheats)

Well all I want is the opinion of everyone!!!

Don't compare to diablo. Diablo's hack 'n' slash, this is *role-play* and for Gods' sake it is a role-play game. Although I like diablo and i've got the expansion as well, well, it's nothing much really, besides good graphics and lots of monsters and a well-organised online network. Divinity may not be 3d, which is best imho, and it may not have the coolest graphics ever, but it's interesting, it does not limit your choices [thousand ways to screw up] and you can very well finish the game with a less than ordinary suit of armour, which is frankly an achievement compared to other role play games out there. How may hours? Take your pick, it's up to you. You can even finish 12 lvl, someone has done that.

You'll have to fight quite a lot in <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> , but you also will have a lot of Quests.

So, playing through this game it will last long.

How long you'll exactly play greatly depends on *how* you play: Playing all day and all of the night (wasn't that a title by the Stones ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" /> ) it might be shorter, whereas if you don't have that much time, it might last a month or even longer.

(It's late, and I notice making more & more grammar errors; it's time to go to bed for me now ... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> )



When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

First of all, please stop writing in green, I can barely read it.

Second, I would say that if you tried to do all quests, without cheats or guides, and tried to explore all the land, you can have more than 100 hours of gameplay. That's quite alot. Just think, if you played 2 hours a day, you'd be settled for almost 2 months.

One thing this game has a lot in common with Diablo is the trawl for good items, so repeating the game with your best loot and searching for more is always a good replay adder. If you copy the .inv and object files from one saved game to a new one, you'll "inherit" all the loot from your previous character, and you can really enjoy starting out with mithril armor, + to high level skills (a Demonic Aide really tears through the catacombs!) and sweet gear.
Swords and axes are plentiful enough that it's easy to get a good one of those early on, but spears and bows that are anything but crap are nearly impossible to come by, so shop Kroxy often to find some good ones. That way, you can enjoy being an amazon with a worthy enough weapon. Also, don't gobble up every spell book you find; those also make a good inheritance for a baby spell caster. A few Burning Wall books and you can make mincemeat out of just about anything.
I'd still be replaying if not for the bugs in the game; I can't seem to get a character which can save in the Dark Forest (or, recently, Verdistis), so I'm awaiting a patch, same as everybody else.


You will rue the day you opposed me! Begin your rueing! I'll just... sit over here... and watch.
