thanks for reading my adventures
I read today this topic and I think I can survive, not easely, but possible :Archery as a warrior - my thoughts (from member:lego)
I have tried before Summon Vermin and summon Skeleton, but I didn't find it satifying ...
I go for bow Expertise AND Sword Expertise in case of emergency and by close combat. Love to use a bow, a sword or Axe. And sometimes staffs or spears are also fun.
I forget Know Creature (since I can see in "Throphees" the most of all kind of enemies their "stats" except their resistances, Known Creature L 5!).
I don't bother about money, so I did not spend a point in repair or identify. If I find a gear with a skillpoint in those skills, I keep them, for sure, but otherwise ... I love to "trade" with NPC's
... AND IF I let George repair and identify items, his reputation goes fast to 100 and his prices are lowered .
In my previous (Sue) play I find many good bows and I hope in my next I find at least 2 or 3 good bows from the time I have 25 in Agility. But first 4 levels I only put points in Constitution so my Vitality is min 150 HP ! After that putting points in Intelligence and from the time I'm level 8 (Poison Weapon avaible) my Agility grow to 25 (at level 8 or 9).
I make a plan for putting my stat -and skillpoints in .... curious I can survive
Three Simple Hardcore Rules are from now on:
1. Death? Game Over and starting a New Game !
2. Any kind of cheating is forbidden: reloading for better stuff: modding the game, cheatings like making more money or whatever with unfair tricks, ...
3. Naturally set the difficulty on "Hard"
Will be continued ...
