    I find new 2-handed weapons (Stormbringer, Massacre) -- but when I equip then -- the action prompts are: Bite, Claw, Punch, Kick? Is it a STR requirement? Bug? Unsure why it's not working.

    Hide is probably per cent based: 20 in the skill equals 20% chance to hide.
    Backstab is nice, triple damage doesn't hurt (not-knives most likely get smaller bonuses).

    Is there any point in recruiting that whiny ratboy in Nerukruel pyramid? Does he give any special benefits, or his speech about helping is simply a recruitment offer?

    Also, is there any special reward for "saving him" as opposed to killing Grendel and disabling the orb on my own? If yes, at what point of completing the dungeon he should be taken into the party for that "saving" to count? Like, "before walking out", "before final boss battle", "before ascending floor 2" or whatever. I really don't want to backtrack to shrine of the raptor, but I will if I am sufficiently motivated to keep the rat but only for a little while...

    I think it is a recruitment offer, the same as Lilith saying she will help you get to Shelach in Skulheim.

    How do you get the key to the catacombs from Gorlo without killing him?

    Ask him about things. Mindread him if you need the keywords. Charm him and rob him, maybe. If the subject comes up he's willing to give it to you and ask you to go get a book for him.

    Noob question: I noticed in my character screens that I have some skill boxes that are highlighted in pink. What does the highlight indicate?

    I have no fucking clue, cross class skill? Possibly class specific skill? Dunno. It could also just be a bug. I'm p.sure that everyone's seen it tho.

    In the end I recruited him after completing the dungeon and went through the circles again. He does reveal a map of path of the elders, and speaks a few lines about feeling better upon leaving Grendel domain, but that's it. No xp for taking him outside or whatever.

    How much inspection is needed to take the orb from the top of the pyramid? I brought Rosy there (58), but it's not enough.

    Not entirely certain but the spellcasting skill that your class currently uses seems to always be highlighted in pink. So if you were a Bard you have sorcery highlighted, I am guessing if you class switched to Cleric Litany would become highlighted instead and Sorcery would be essentially useless.

    Has anyone been able to use the workplace as a blacksmith? For some weapons, the option "sharpen the edge" is available, but clicking on it does not give anything.

    That doesn't explain why alchemistry would be highlighted tho. Unless I'm missing that that's a spellcasting skill.

    It is, at least for thaumaturges and rangers.

    Warriors get wizard spells later on.

    Alright I'm tying up some loose ends in Crowl (looking for someone to translate that encoded catechism so I can get Caliburn and answer the riddles in Samhain) - where the fuck is Clara (Raghilda's sister)? I've scoured the baths and found clues and signs of struggle, but I've examined every tile and can't find the ruby broach she was carrying. I can't seem to open the gate at the end of the baths either.

    Clues?

    The answer is to

    stop wasting your time trying to solve that mystery in Crowl. Proceed with other quests, and you'll eventually find the Ruby Broach.

    As for myself, I've been playing with the release version of Grimoire, but I've now reached the Hecatombs/Reflekshun/Knossos area
    Show Spoiler
    , and I think I might be encountering bugs. There's a looking glass in the Halls of Reflekshun that I need a book for, but no book anywhere. By sleeping on the plant square in the Hall of Knossos, I can make the plant creature ("sprout from hell") appear and kill it, but this doesn't appear to change anything else. Do I need to give up on the release version and update?

    There's a counter that keeps going down on Caliburnus even if I don't invoke it (I'm just swinging normally). Why?

    I think it's supposed to be for invoking fireballs, but the charges seem to be messed up on melee weapons in general. It also happens with necrostaff.

    I'm near the end of the game and completely stumped as to how to progress.
    Show Spoiler
    I'm at cromlech of the clock and I need to cause some sort of emergency to pull the lever, I think it involves interacting with the computer screen across the room but I've tried everything in my inventory. Do I need to go all the way back and activate the bridge in the barracks, or am I missing something obvious?

    Yes, you need something from beyond the bridge. When you wear it, you can see the Matrix.

    Caliburnus seems to pop off Fire damage and Irritation until it runs out of charges, then just wrecks face with no Irritation afterwards. Make sure your Durendal is using it if you have one. It's the only thing they'll be getting for a while

    The book exists in Knossos. Or it did before he fixed Knossos.

    I think the Rhattu fleshsack and Lilith are both supposed to lead you through their respective "dark" areas without causing instadeath pits. Once you can no longer spam Locate Item with Kroondergraf, this might actually be an issue. Probably disabled in V1
