    Defeating that plant creature cuts Knossos's life by half when you fight him.

    It actually took me till the end of the game to realize there are scroll buttons when you "look" at an item so I didn't see the actual combination from the bridge book for the puzzle. I was there for like 30m just trying random combinations till I got annoyed

    Which is the better weapon, one with a save of 50, or one with a save of 20? (assuming them equal in other respects)

    Since he will demand tablets from you when you meet him, if you turn off critical item lock and drop them on the ground, you'll be able to bypass this.

    Not that talking to him reveals anything too interesting, but "Havoc Seed" at least can be... enlightening.

    I guess 50, since it's the save that monsters have to perform against that weapon.

    Man, this game DESPERATELY needs a balance pass... I got four tablets and combat for a while now has been just either "auto-attack to win" or "who launches the nukes first".

    Not to mention shit like money being irrelevant, the world having only one reliable source for ranged ammo, status effects stun-locks & working on everyone (I killed Ahriman with a Critical Strike on the first turn), Raise Dead spells reducing my party's CON to 10...

    The feeling of adventure & exploration is still great (despite some lame maps that are mostly empty), but everything else... the game is begging for a balance mod.

    There's only one to balance everything perfectly, probably too expensive for Cleve though

    I have to say, climbing is pretty fucking retarded. Sitting at 60 climbing overall, failing a climb that I MUST make to complete the game.

    Absolutely no challenge, just mashing mouse until skill is high enough.

    They aren't using D20 then :P
    Yeah, that's what I assumed, but still... I doubt we'll ever know. Oh well, ta :)

    Welp !! I'm stuck in Crescent Wilderness with a petrified character. Exits leading to other zones require climbing/falling and it's not possible when a member of your party is pretrified. Any solution to that which wouldn't involve travelling to another zone ? My previous save is many hours before.. pretty please.. ?

    Dismiss your character. get a cure or go to shrine of the raptor healing shrine , recruit your character again and heal him - you won't lose anything.

    No, it works. I just wondered if I get any special reward for actually "saving" him as he begs rather than ignoring him. Apparently not.

    Started spamming locate item from my sage. No more need to reload after using the orb :smug:

    Speaking of NPCs, why doesn't phoenix feather work on Medea bones?

    Huh? That's stupid, the item description explicitly says it works for that.

    Kinda funny, it worked on every bone I found but Medea. Then I tried Raise Dead on her and it worked.

    If you save that mage on Cathedral Bell, meeting Ahriman after it will make him send you to Oblivion. THEN after you leave that and meet him again, he will just talk to you and ignore the tablets

    Does Ahriman ending require you to give the tablets to him or can you just turn in the Chaos Seed?

    What's the normal way to learn the catechism? I stole a copy off of Coffergus as a by-product of my innate kleptomania and never had to bother with the encoded catechism book to get Caliburnus.

    Cleve said that if you someone took the tablet from you, later on you can find the tablet at the owl's place, white owl gives it to you. You can't get to the seed without using the tablets to open a passage, thus only the seed is required for Ahriman ending. Just take it and give to him(I didn't, I had killed him by the time I got the seed).

    Giving the encoded catechism book to Coffergus. He gives you the book you stole from him.
