I keep getting blown to bits by traps in the goblin fort and I suspect it's because my Tool Use isn't high enough. I know the Tool Use stat exists (instant help and tip boxes refer to it), but I can't find it listed anywhere when I bring up character info.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

I suspect you're playing as the Celts. Tool Use is not available to them at that time. Instead, increase resistance to physical damage. Luck should also be a godsend.

The base value for Tool Use without training is (INT + DEX) / 4, and I think this formula holds true even if you don't have the skill. Increasing a fighter's dexterity or a druid's intelligence will therefore help you deal with traps.

—Alorael, who has just realized again how much he likes the Nethergate/Avernum system of traps. Traps should never be circular blobs that are extremely visible. A4, that would be you.

So.. Tool Use for Celts must be one of the "???".

Interesting.. thanks. Will work in the meantime beefing up those other attributes.
