  2. In case anyone was wondering, yes the mimic fight freaking sucks. So much worse than the Goblin fight. That one was actually really fun

    I found the mimic fight much easier and did it first. Mimics don't throw fireballs. Web from the wizard to keep half stuck in place and Grease and Entangling Ectoplasm from the Psion to disable the portcullis while I hit it for 2-3 damage at a time. Can't remember how I dealt with the gargoyle. Sleep maybe. Having one dude with a reach weapon makes Web great, by the way.

    That reminds me, can you ever find ranged weapons? I think you find one plain bow early, but the rat dude doesn't sell any.

    I didn't get any ranged weapons until I got the prize from beating the goblins in the arena, nice bow too. Oh, friendly reminder that the grey goblins are selling an arrow of slaying, probably a good idea to buy that.

  6. Ok guys I know we all have great party suggestions, I have another one for the pile.

    Strongfist Half-Giant Fighter with a reach weapon and Mantle of Frazzagar with Flashover +1 means that he hits very hard when he hits and he is able to trip very well. And when he does get hit, he hits back with fire thanks to Flashover +1. The Mantle means he’s invulnerable against most low level spells which means that fireballs ain’t no thing.

    Plus, he triggers AOO from two tiles away. It feels like cheating, except that Pierre made these encounters so hard, that he’s basically the one character who can stand a chance.

    I think having a high CON + Toughness is mandatory on everyone.

    Don't know so much about CON and Thoughness, but I sure as hell can't play without Improved Initiative.

    It makes a huge difference, at least for me. But yeah, I too can't play without Improved Initiative.

  12. Man the freaking crypts. Ok Pierre what kind of bullshit is this? Haha I mean seriously. Five DIFFICULT battles without any resting?

    Oh oh and my cleric was absolutely gangbanged by the phantoms, so I have to try this encounter again.

    Oh man oh man! This is making me EXCITED! I want to get to that part of the game. But I've been constantly replaying the first part and trying out different party combos :(

    From what I've seen so far, you are just a band of adventures that randomly finds a cult in a sewer, have a little fight/banter with the cult leader, get sent to a dungeon and then have to escape it & find the cult leader again. No big story set piece or anything, KotC1 had more story.

    Module description says you can reach Lv 21. Considering Pierre's encounter design so far, you probably end the game by fighting all the evil gods at once.

    I've downloaded the game but haven't had a chance to play it yet.

    I have to say with all the discussion of difficulty and bugs it must be a pretty decent game at its core or people wouldn't keep trying.

    Go into the spec tab on the character screen and find the auto cast option for it.

    When you level up and get feats the game offer you only feats eligible with your current level / stats. So if a feat requires level 6 you wont get it offered on level 6, only on 7+. But as mentioned before you can just use the respec option after you level up to fix this. ( I thought at first it's one specific feat but apparently it's all of them )

    Most likely at once and they ambush you on higher ground.
