    Wait, so a Berserker will, at some point, cast healing spells, or something?

    Hint
    Show Spoiler
    You need to get a certain item from the Deepsink Project and process it to be able to cross the chasm.

    Get the weird ore from the Deepsink Project and then place it into the hydraulic press in the same level. Doing so will create the stepping stones, which you have to drag up to the use button at the edge of the chasm to actually create the bridge. Clicking use and then on the stones doesn't work - I wasted a lot of time due to that!

    I had a post about the rules for multiclassing (major point: each class only has three allowed outgoing multiclasses, regardless of how high your stats get; I made a list). Someone said it should be stickied and put in its own thread, so it was put in its own thread and not stickied, which was a nice idea but probably means fewer people will see it. Anyway, here's the link.

    Extra tip (since the question was already answered above (click nameplates)): you can do this during combat to switch out damaged frontline characters. Really useful!

    New info (I hadn't read/heard it anywhere yet at least): A Vampyr Bite seems to be able to curse (just went in for lols a bit with a very weird party composition and it procced a few times, eventually I deduced that it's very likely the curse is due to the Vampyr bite), which is quite nice actually.
    This mimics the behaviour of the Naga Bite which poisons (Lash Coil seems not to poison, but I could have had bad rng luck, but seems to get more additional attacks and if so it gets you 2 additional attacks).

    I am quite interested in hand-to-hand combat and its viability later on actually.. Probably not seeing the '6d8' weapons in some screenshots here. Still, anyone know if Iron Hand is obtainable outside of a Sanctuary start, and, more importantly, what it actually does (I did read the description)?

    Also, can the Drake Firebreath for example improve so it can hit multiple targets if you use it enough or with higher level or so?

    Blindness and Insanity also have chances to hit your own allies, as do confusion and charm. Disease essentially spawns paralyze, confusion and insanity.

    How do you open the gate to Samhain after crossing the chasm ? There's an iron gate, a pile of bones, and the royal seal does not seem to work..

    People were asking about spell lists for non-spellcaster classes; I updated that on my thread. Relevant portion:

    Additionally, it looks like the interaction between multiclassing and spell learning is weird, by which I mean it doesn't exist. Spells available to learn on level-up are based solely on your current class. If you're a level 10 cleric and change your class into templar, you don't get to count your cleric levels toward the spell list; you start learning spells again at templar level 3, and you learn them as a level 3 templar.

    Can someone give me a hint (not a spoiler) about what to do?

    I 100% mapped the spirit caves, but I can't figure out how to proceed. I can't open the door in either the Cenotaph or the Tomb. I feel like I must be missing something obvious and dumb.

    Have you been to the catacombs below the temple in the town yet? Ask the librarian for the key.

    Oh, and as I mention that...

    I haven't found the book he wanted me to bring him yet; where is it? I killed the lich and cleared out the Cenotaph

    a secret room in the Cenotaph, by the library, where you can find the Tome of the Spider.


    A question of my own: Does Sir Coffergus do anything if you

    hand him the Amulet of Astrixus, which apparently is the secret goal of his quest
    ?

    I think he can join you after that.

    You need to get something in the Ukluk Mines for Smithers. This will give you what you need to proceed.

    Yeah Coffergus can join you if you give him the amulet.

    I just charmed him and stole it back, right after I made him overjoyed at giving him his quest goal :M

    How do I get infravision to see in the Deepsink Project? Light spell doesn't work, so that's not the way.

    Are you referring to the amulet ? I already have it. It seems like I need to combine it with a mediallion, but I have no idea where that one is. First guess was to go back to Ulkul but I've explored everything and I don't think I missed a secret, so I no longer have any idea where to look.. more hints please ;)

    The book you fond there on mausoleum, give to him and he will explain it for you, then you can convert your party to catechism(big mouth there on mausoleum tells you how)and get the sword

    There is a gate in NW Ukluk where you need to use the King Loogmar seal.

    So I ever since the last patch I'm having an issue with anything I buy from NPC's. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a bug. Even after identifying an item a NPC sells me when I go to equip or use it it is no longer identified and I can't. For example I identify a spell book at the NPC selling it then I assay it once in my possesion but then when I go to scribe it, it is no longer identified. Any help?

    I think you just have to wing it in the dark. It's pretty easy with the automap. As to infravision, maybe Vamphyrs have it, or something?

    That's an old problem which Cleve said should be fixed in the newest update.

    These patches are getting ridiculous. He just patched it again like ten minutes ago and now it won't even open. I'm getting tired of restarting. I know I can download an older version but, you would think patches should be stable. I keep losing save games.
