    If you have two tanks in your frontline, does the AI still switch between them endlessly as part of their 'seek higher threat' mechanic? Or did they improve that?

    Hm, since Critical Focus allows to meet feat BAB requirements with full SS levels, guess I will go SS19/M1 after all... and install the Craft Items mod to make me some Lead Blades wands.... Should be about optimal. Getting Improved Vital Strike at level 12 should be pretty cool also.
    Although will really start to rock after beating Armag and taking his sword.

    WTF, I just equipped Staff of Whispering Souls for the first time on my Evil Necro. This item is amazing. +4 profane bonus to Int and you just need to have it equipped, you don't need to have it currently selected..
    Damn, my Necromancer is going to have awesome necro DC in end game, Wail of Banshee whole day on the fey packs :D

    Cool. Having the effect without holding the staff sounds like a bug (not a first one like that). Sadly Wail is capped in how much damage it can do per target nowadays. Still 2 of those (or a combination with something else) should work.

    And then right after that staff I found necromancer's staff that turns weapons of animated dead and create undead into +3 weapons :D
    I don't remember these two items last few times I did Vordekai's dungeon.

    That is cool. I have that staff in my inventory but don't have it on Octavia because I assumed it would replace her ranged weapon and didn't want to lose that. However, I hope it isn't a bug since I hate using exploits and bugs to give myself an advantage. Speaking of bugs, it's somewhat amazing how far this game has come in that area. The only slightly annoying, seriously noticeable bug I've found in 1.3.0 was a cleric/priest's inventory in one of my towns being empty when I wanted to get some scrolls and diamonds at a discount. Not bad for such a complex game that started out not too balanced and stable.

    You can scroll it up to see store content.
    Game saves scrollbar position from previous shop visit but this one could be wrong for shorter list.

    And there is no need to use bug for getting Int bonus from Whispering Souls Staff. Any Wizard/Sorc with melee weapon can put cantrip on auto-cast instead of shooting with crossbow. I even prefer this to shooting - longer animation makes it easier to stop them halfway if you changed plans for this round.

    I equipped Octavia with special bracers that allow her to use bows, and found one that deals significant (but not OP) fire damage. Still would hate to lose that, but thanks for the tip. It never occurred to me to use cantrips in autocast for an effective cheap range weapon.

    A very accurate, although slow, weapon. Damage is quite poor, but if it carries sneak attacks, its not terrible.

    Octavia cannot use it, the character needs to be Evil. But you can give it to Fire Kineticist companion and keep it in her secondary slots. She needs both hands free to use Gather Power.

    Yeah, I just thought of that after I clicked Post Reply. With an item with a name like "The Staff of Withering Souls" it's not likely that a cheerful, bubbly, queer hippy chick like Octavia can use it. i should sell the fucking thing and make a nice bundle, but I just can't bear to part with it. I mean, The Staff of Withering Souls?! I want it close to me.

    The fact not every spell appears as scroll, by a long shot, is kind of silly though.

    I'm not even sure they are all in the game files, certainly the vendor doesn't offer the full range

    scribe scroll is a crafting feat, you create a scroll from the spellbook

    New trader has almost all available scrolls with Arcane X. I tried to complete collection on wizard-AT and in the end she was missing only 2 lvl 8 spells (and 1 of them had priest version in the shop). Each scroll has 1-5 copies there.

    I answered it. This one was much better than the last one and focused on content and not if we want a console version or not :D
