    Yeah, Fireboots worked here. But it's a charged item, so need to use it instead of wearing it.

    No stat increase skill gained, skill gained is the same roll each time multiplied by the bonuses from each races/classes

    Having started in the forest, I of course had access to the Shrine of the Raptor.

    Now, in the

    How you opened the Mandarin's first door(underground)? Using knock knock crashes the game, can't force neither lockpick it.

    Edit: Found it.

    Which skills are responsible for spell choices? ( which skills do I need to increase in order to get new spells? )

    It's just level-based, I think?

    Go to the locked skull door in the catacombs, you should have a key to open it (or already did). Use the look command in there and you will receive a poem in your journal, that has the clues how to solve the device in the museum.

    The gate in the baths will be opened from the other side later on. You need to do other things first.

    OTOH, it seems one of mental stats does affect skill gain rate for some skills that develop with use. When I was grinding climbing, my spellcasters used every climb to raise the skill, quickly maxing it. The less intellectually developed dwarven berserker and wolfin ranger were at around 50 by that moment, and it took them twice as many attempts to max it. By the time they did, my dumb as a brick saurian was under 40, I spent 3 times as much time grinding him alone, and gave up at about 80. He only increased in, like, 1 out of 8 climbs.

    Curiously, this is not true for swimming, everyone learns it at equal rate and finishes simultaneously.

    So what does the necromancy/Litany skills do anyway? I thought they enhance cleric/necromancer spells, the description in game doesn't tell me much

    Probably max spell power and the chance to cast reliably?

    I saw that Assassins learn necromancer spells at level 3+ but they don't even have the necromancy skill so I am not sure that's true

    What race class casters do you have? What sticks out to me is possible low intelligence on wolfin, dwarf, and especially Saurian. They also have low Metabolism but so does Aeorb and I'm assuming you have one of those as a caster.

    Yeah I got that but the clues are simply beyond me... I thought some of the puzzles on Wizardry 7 were kind of vague but this takes the cake

    Did you find the combinations for the chests in the SE Vanguard building in Kublai and the one in the Saurian cave?

    Also, did you get to the Titan Lake on the other side of the small lake? I wonder if there is another mode of transportation there or if it's necessary to simply swim the second lake.

    Have you crossed the Samhain gorge? Because that needs to come first anyway.

    The solution to the puzzle with the machine:

    Show Spoiler
    1. Crush the egg you got in the Eyrie by using the machine in deepsink project.

    2. Read the inscriptions in the catacombs. Then open your journal and click on catacombs and then on the bottom left on the recorded clues. Notice which words that apear in that catacomb clue also appear on the buttons in the machine in the Museum of Magic and enter them in that sequence.

    3. Put the omelett and the egg that comes out together and then put that back into the machine.

    4. Take the result of that to the nest in the Eyrie.

    I have not found any single combination for any chest yet. Also, I don't have a map for Saurian cave, what is the name?
    Titan lake would be Loch Titan? If so, there is a secret passage on Loch Lalain with a Harpie woman there, she need a book to sing for you. She will get the transportation you need to cross the waters. If not, I have not gone there where you are yet.

    The Saurian cave has one of the tablets. It's what the whole generator activation in Waterport is for - it drains the cavern underneath. Then there is a well there that you can use to descend into the cave.

    And yeah, Loch Titan. When you take that thingie over the first lake to the other side, there is a dark cavern there that you can cross to a second lake.

    So there's an enemy called Marshlight that can drain your characters' food bar. The status will say "X is starving!" but does it actually do anything?

    Apparently this doesn't do anything. Defeated the enemy, rested, food bar filled up to 100% on its own.
