  • The choice of a class at the beginning doesn't have much significance - you receive just one ability and +4 points to defence against attacks connected with the class you have chosen;
  • The bow is useful only in the early part of the game, think twice before investing points in archery skills;
  • Falling down from any heights doesn't affect you health;
  • By pressing the "Q" button, you can transform your character into a dragon and the other way round (only after getting the ability itself, that is after capturing the Battle Tower);
  • After pressing the "U" button, a menu will appear on the right, using which you can instantly move to your Battle Tower (only after gaining such an ability, that is after capturing the Battle Tower);
  • The "F" button activates a pause which you can use at any moment in the game. During it you can change the skills shortcuts;
  • Some teleports don't offer the possibility to choose the destination;
  • Not every mission has to be completed by using physical strength;
  • You can meet illusionist, who are able to completely change the appearance of your character;
  • Talk to everybody - you can always get to know some interesting things. Read minds as well, you'll get to know passwords and item localizations etc. The higher the "price" of reading one's mind, the more interesting the information will be. If it's very low you probably won't learn anything useful;
  • Unfortunately you aren't able to assemble a team to help you out;
  • You can, however, create your own minion, which will fight alongside you and attract enemy attention. You will be offered the possibility to make one by a necromancer (after completing one of the early missions or later, after obtaining the Battle Tower). You can also summon undead/ghosts/demons;
  • You only need to have a scroll with a formula in your inventory and an alchemist will be able to prepare a potions;
  • Plan in advance in which skill you will invest - you can view all of them from the beginning of the game;
  • Try to gather every plant you find - you can later use them to create potions and enchant items;
  • While in dragon form, you are able to dodge ballista missiles, but you're defenceless against self-guided missiles;
  • You're not able to attack land units while in dragon form.

shadowsong 22/04/2011 19:13

To all of you players who criticize guides and walkthroughs - If you can do a better job, then ante up! I have played video games since Pong came out way back in the dark ages. In addition, I have written many of my own guides from tid-bits gleaned from multiple sources and my own experience. Writing a guide is NOT an easy job and requires beacoup hours of work and dedication; especially when everyone want one yesterday when a new game has been released. I applaud the contributors to this site for their efforts - they do a fantastic and seemingly thankless job. I think that their guides are the absolute best available and suggest that people who find something that was missing or that can clarify an aspect of a quest that was a little vague, to post it for the rest of us. Be constructive, be a team player, grow up, and stop whinning! Great job guys -keep up the good work

timmi - If you can't get past the skeletons by Lovis' Tower then you probably need more experience and at least one level up. If you haven't done so yet, go through the Derelict Tunnels to gain some exp. first, then try again. I found the best initial approach to these tunnels to be in the north - by the waterfalls. If your level is a little low - lure the goblins out one or two at a time and you can get there without too much hassle. While there complete the ritual for the Talisman and equip it.

how do i get past all the goblins and Skeletons to get to lovis tower

i'm wondering if it has much use to use wisdom, yes for completing a mission you get more xp but during the game its like the extra % is deducted, example you normally get 500 xp, now you get 450 and 50 by wisdom and i do think its best to start as warrior, it gives strength and the whirlwind, the strength you need when you first explore before doing missions and the wirhwind is always handy, they will come close always and its an easy way to destroy all crates in an area instead of looking them one by one, please comments on my wisdom idea please

Hints: Don't sell Rothman's bow (M2.14), it's has +1 wisdom skill. Buy for 1000 gold the ring from well of wishes (at the Dreavan M2.9) +1 wisdom skill, instead of choose 5000 points of experience. This is very good ring, with 2 places for enchants. When you get revard, allways use both items to get 4% experience more.

In my opinoin, this game was created to pass it 4 times as characters: priest, magician, warrior, archer. For that reason, there are many sollutions of the quests, to not be bored. If you choose one profession, don't use the skills from other proffession. You can only choose skills from Dragon Slayer tree. At the first look, the skill from other professon tree look usefull. But only at the begining. To get this skill usefull later, you need to invest skill points in it. But you loose skill points for your main profession skill tree, which skills should be more powerfull, when you level up. Some skills from different profession exclude themselves. Par example: Evade skill from Archer is very bad choise for worrior, which has very good skill Reflect. The worrior is strong and fight close with enemy. He gets many hits. Reflect help him to make additional damage to the opponents and win. For other profession Reflect is useless. The other profession allways need to evade hits ! For that reason if you choose archer profession, you can finish game using bow. You have many special skills for the archer. Different profession, different tactics to fight with enemy. The priest don't fight. The summoned creature fight for him. Choose next time other profession and the game will not be the same !

Piotr 08/07/2010 18:22

Another advice: When you level up, visit the traders. They have new items for sale. Before talk to the trader, save the game and look if there are items (usually the most expensive), which can be usefull for you. Do it 2 or 3 times. You can buy enchanted items, to take enchant from by your enchanter. He will learn it, and you can use it to echant your equipment. In this way, you don't need the scroll with enchant, which is more expensive than item and hard to find.

Piotr 08/07/2010 18:03

My advice: allways read minds, but before doing it SAVE the game. After decide if you need that information. Par example, you can get 22561 experience points and from that you level up! Not all minds reading are described in this walkthrough. Another example, you can read minds of Talana and find not far away her weapon on the path to Maxos Temple. For minds read use Lovis neclace +1 MindRead and buy itemes with this skill. The bigger level you are, the bigger price for minds read is.

I used a bow for the entire game, including the end battle. Was level 10 in exploding arrow by then.
