    I'm still true to my "Never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game" mentality but I'll definitely pick it up on a Steam sale. It's probably better to wait anyway since they are still patching it.

    It is one of the best games from the last year,it is worth the 20 bucks. Had a lot more fun with it than with D:OS2

    Being more fun than D:OS2 isn't much of an accomplishment but the game definitely looks very interesting. I like that THQ Nordic are somewhat single handedly bringing back AA productions like this and Elex, allows smaller developers to put their idea in a game without things like Kickstarter.

    Played through it the last few weeks and quite liked it. The only problem I had was the gay dwarf (really?) and the German "schuldkult" which poured out of every zest (reeee genocide sorcerers just because they are different).

    Also as soon as the worldmap opened I thought this game must be HUGE, was quite disappointed that there were only "a few maps" which you have to visit a few times, but perhaps there will be an or more addons to fix this.

    But damn those beautifully crafted maps.

    From what people report, it's obvious it's a bit unfinished and rushed. Launching with only 3 races is eyebrow raising as well, since the RTS part isn't so in-depth to sustain that (unlike, say, Starcraft), Spellforce 1 launched with 6 (!) races. I do hope they make enough money for expansions, though, and to be more daring in terms of creativity and design.

    How do you kill the monsters in Mulhandir afterwards when you are alone? Can't take on a 2000 HP Golem on my own.

    level up more, get better items and don't be afraid to use your consumables. Also it depends on your main character, I got a two handed warrior that leeches life when he hits.
    If you are a ranged char or mage kite a lot.

    Is there a way for mages to be able to use more than 3 abilities?

    One of the most often brought up criticisms of the game.
    No idea who came up with the nonsensical notion that you can only have three abilities at once.
    Quite baffling, really.

    In other news, there has been quite the update:
    More items and fixes are always good, of course.
    But the balancing changes seem a bit odd, given that there should be more urgent things to focus on - like the 3 abilities restriction.

    Yea the 3 abilities limit is irritating but I don't see them changing it since their default control scheme is about using keys on keyboard 3 for each of 4 heroes in party and there are not more than 3 keys on keyboard for that.
    Best they could do is like in Diablo 2 expansion create synergies where leveling other skills gives general bonuses for different skills.

    I think they thought you'd use all your heroes as a sort of meta-hero, combining their skillsets as if that. It mostly creates a MOBA-like feel, though.

    Now that you mention that, my A team was dwarf (Isgrim?!), elf healer (Yiria?!) and the Guild Mage guy (Untranth?!) and my character. And then when you reach middle point of the game, game removed all of those (that I also gave best items and even bought those expensive permanent potions for) and gave me 3 other random party members LOL for that one mission.

    How does it remove them ? Only one that left for me was the gay dwarf because he was retarded and wanted to become Zuckerberg and control the world. I even became lover with the elf girl.

    What do the two special potions you get from your commanders at the greyfell attack do? I noticed nothing when drinking them?

    It just gives you more focus and health, it just doesn't update right away.
    How does the extra damage work tho? Lets say you do light and fire damage, does it split 50/50 or does it pick the best damage considering the enemies res?

    Even 750 ml of vodka, if drunk fast enough, can get you into the toxicology department at Pirogov and may possibly kill you, regardless of your tolerance. You'll be dead long before you've drunk 3 litters.

    He’s clearly been at it all day, so divide that by sixteen odd hours? Since whenever his posts started to get wobbly. He’s still posting now, presumably not dead. Maybe an imperfect grasp of the metric system? I know that’s really unusual in Europe, but he loves Spellforce 3 and that game was such a huge goddamn letdown.

    Less than the sum of its parts.

    Edit: I take it back, he’s been dark for a few hours—probably asleep? I doubt he’d really drink three liters. Alcohol overdose is so passé.

    A lot of people post drunk on the Codex. I like the fact they think about it while drunk, if that's not true love, I don't know what is.
