DwD -- which skills are best & High Level Char. Generator? in Blades of Avernum

Hello All,

I was wondering if there was a PC version of a high level character generator so I can do some experiments to figure out which skills are going to actually be useful when you get to the high level areas? I was playing with the character editor and adding skill points and items, and I noticed that Assassination, even at levels well into double-digits, doesnt seem to do ANYTHING to these undead... And I guess Anatomy wouldn't do anything either? So just Blademaster and the relevant weapon skills? I'm wanting to be able to chop down any given fodder on the highest difficulty in one hit, which is part of my character goal... I'd like to know some of the skill levels to do that. Thanks!!

Fire near river @ SE Morrows Isle (Rebellion)? in Blades of Avernum

Well, the whole idea of this character is to get a HIGH number of AP, and fire a WHOLE LOT... so with fast on feet, haste, divine aid and ultimately, a high level of first strike, a helm of speed, a ring of speed, slippers of speed, and a black dress of speed. *Evil grin* Also, to make this character more "ultimate", could anyone help me figure out the Morog's Scepter question in the other post? Thanks!!

WIERD - How does Morog's Scepter work? in Blades of Avernum

Anyway, I was playing around with putting a character in all of the scenarios, and giving her all of the best equipment from every scenario to figure out an "ultimate" character to work towards, and I found the wierdest item.

It's Morog's Scepter, it's a thrown missile (so it goes in the slot you would otherwise put a sling in), it has unlimited ammo, it's cursed so you cant sell or unequip it, it does 6-30 points of damage plus 1-5 points of damage per level of mage spells and dexterity, and it adds +2 to pathfinder.

Talk about wierd!!

So... does Thrown Weapons help you be accurate with this item? How about Sharpshooter? Are Mage Spells and Dexterity the only ways to be more accurate and give higher damage with this? Do items that add "+ 1 level to missile damage" work normally with this? Or is it so unique that those bonuses dont stack? It seems to be a really puzzling item... any help would be appreciated! :)

Oh, my character is a Nephilim Fast on Feet Divinely Touched archer specializing in thrown weapons...

She normally uses her blessed sling, and she uses the only thrown weapon that's better than that in a noticable way -- blessed javalins -- when she REALLY wants to kill things quickly. She's gonna specialize in having lots of AP's so she can kill things quickly!

I know that. and Im talking about those specific doors, lol... I know that at least ONE blessed sling is there, and that is pretty much the ultimate weapon for my character...

And that still doesnt answer my question about the fire.... :(

Heya, I have a few questions about A Small Rebellion. North of Liam, next to the river, there is what looks like a small fire which I cant get to. How do I get there? Also, where can I get unlock doors level 2 in this scenario? Or do I simply need a certain mage skill and intelligence to unlock some of the more difficult doors? If so, what is it? Also, what is the earliest place where I can get a blessed sling? Thanks!

Walkthrough for BoA in Blades of Avernum
Warrior
Member # 2147

Well, the sort of walkthrough that I would like to see would include where to find useful items and spells and stuff... things that are worthy of staying in your inventory. Also, walkthroughs for sidequests and useful things to do in the scenarios after VoDT would be *really* useful... as would be some of the encounters and things you can find on the world map, and the skill level you need to get things (luck, arcane lore, nature lore, etc.)

Mostly, however, info on the best items would be great!

Also, a question, are there ways to learn to make potions OTHER than the ones shown on the potion list? Like Resistance Potion? Thanks!

VODT: drake fang & magic pants in Blades of Avernum

...I still cant find the pants of power, and how to get to them. Help? Which level is this on? Where is this journal? Where are these pants and how do I get them? Thanks!

EDIT: from reading a bit, they are behind those (seemingly unpassable...) pools of acid from which a demon hid behind in one of the areas of the school itself (not the waste containment area). If this is true, how do you walk past the gook?

Well, lets see...
The *normal* picture, G1819, shows her in white. The picture of the other nephilim in Blue, G1671, shows him in a light blue shirt with an ugly dark blue outline to it. Perhaps if you could just change it to some of those light blue hues in g1671, but without the ugly outline? Or something lighter, to seem whitish-blue? Just as long as it looks professional, i wont mind, lol! :)

I tried editing it with MSPaint, and it wasnt working *at all* :( :(

That really sucked, all the colors were off, even as I tried to set the display to 256 colors and find the basic colors that were used there... I couldnt get it working. It was weird, and quite annoying. Anyone able to better edit these pictures somehow? Thanks!!

*sighs* Boy, I wish I had the skill to edit that bmp so that its not pink. What am I talking about? The in-game icon for the only feminine looking Nephilim that we can choose a character for! The portrait of this character shows a nice thin Nephilim in some dainty white clothes... but when you get in game...its... *pink*... PINK..

*siighs*

Is anyone out there capable of perhaps making, uhhh, g1819.bmp in art graphics and g1669.bmp in the same folder (of course, this is the windows version) look more, you know, the same? and dont tell me about G1671.bmp, the fur on that nephilim isn't the same color, and besides, I dont like the dark blue outline his shirt has. Now, if there was a way to make the pink shades on g1669 into the equivalent light blue shades, I would be forever thankful... any help? Anyone??

Also, try a Nephilim Divinely Touched Fast on Feet character...

when that character goes haste/blessed/divine aid, they get, like, 12 action points and can attack three times... hehehe. Of course, you'll have to take armor off to cast high power mage spells, but thats no biggie as you can do that for the noncombat spells that youll need, and you can still cast haste with all your armor on..

Nah, just Haste and Light and Slow, really. She's gonna be more of a priest..

And is there *any* way to have, standard, enough movement points for three attacks? How much Dex and Quick Strike would one need for that? At what point is it that more Dex wouldn't matter? I'm trying to figure out the balance of "most benefit at any given time" here...

you sure? 100% sure on that?

Hmmm... *ponders* maybe I shoulda given her "Natural Mage" instead, so she could get Haste eventually, and still wear armor...

I'm trying to figure out what she would get, if it would be possible to have her only wear light armor as part of her character... that might be neat... is the mage wearing armor thing just a percentage to fail? Or when they are encumbered (in the number-way) period? How does that work?
