Maybe I'll move those lockpicking points to sharpen points and keep my other repair skills. I do like to be able to repair while in the middle of the dungeon. It is also hard to decide do I want to give points to two handed or one handed? It depends what weapon I come across that I like. And then once I decide that, do I go for damage or accuracy or something else?

Hi Tamia:

I don't really know what the best way to distribute the points is, but what I do is go for the two-handed, and each time I get a skill point award it to one of the sections in the two-handed skill, like damage, critical hits, etc. I've pretty much awarded the points evenly that way. That's not to say it's the best -- it's just the way I do it.

Maybe some of the rpg combat veterans can tell you more. I'm always a mage first, warrior second. laugh

Zanthia - about sharpening weapons. If you only have the one sword for DK be careful. The first time I sharpened a sword discovered DK wasn't allowed to use it afterwards - he needed more strength because it was a more deadly weapon. That is what happened when you discovered your character no longer had a weapon - only a shield. The weapon should be found in his inventory ready to use later in the game.

This was so frustrating I stopped sharpening tools, bought back the skills and just put them into increasing accuracy etc..

Hope that helps.

ALice, for me i have since seen that the agility requirement rather than the strength goes up when the weapon gets sharpened. so now before sharpening a new weapon i save first and slowly sharpen to make sure i have the agility to handle it. this sharpens skill is great. i wish i had started using it earlier. what a differencce it has made.

I've finally finished Dungeon 3 in Act IV. I must be the slooowwest person around, even though I'm playing at least an hour a day during the week and two to three a day on weekends. rotfl

Anyway, has any one figured out what the permanent stones are? I found them in one of the Academy levels, but don't remember which. I tried using them like charms, but they didn't work. I'm assuming they do something, or are they a quest item? think I jump from the Academy to the Pipes to the Dungeons, so don't always remember what I'm doing.

Oh, and the Holy Water. What do I do with that? I know I can make potions with it, but what is the difference between those and the herbal potions?

I finally got rid of the Remove Curse spell once and for all. It kept crashing me to the desktop. The Black Cleric Mage was able to use it with no problem, but I sure couldn't. Sold it and bought points in Paralyze and Ether Rain, and one point for my Ranaar Skeleton summoning doll. Yes, I finally found him. He's sure good at carrying equipment around for me. laugh He's a pretty good fighter, too.

One more question -- the jewels for the imps eyes statue. I read the earlier threads here which said to use a red and yellow jewel, but when I put them on the ledge in front of the statue nothing happens. How do I work the darn thing?

Jean, open up the statue like you would a treasure chest to put the jewels inside, and then walk to the door - it'll be open.
The holy water with a potion give you permanent raise in statistics.
Sorry, can't remember any permanent stones.
And hey, there's no award for finishing first! Just savor, the fun games don't come along every day!

Thanks, nickie! I'll give that a try tonight. I thought I had already opened it since it looked like there was a shelf there that I was putting the gems on, but I'll check it out again. lol

Hmmm. I must be doing something wrong here. I put the gems on/in the statue and nothing happened. The gate is still locked. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? Am I supposed to use more than one red and one yellow gem?

Jean, isnt that always the way? The times I screamed for help then solved the problem almost immediately lol

The gates were opened for me (no idea why)but the statue's eyes never changed!!!!!!!

I played this game without using the dolls or sharpening weapons. I didn't make any potions and as for the 'permanent rocks' - well, just before the last battle I threw them to lighten the load.

Hi Alice:

I'm glad you're still checking in here! Do you miss the DK? He sure has a unique sense of humor. rotfl

I still haven't figured out the Holy Water, so if anyone can tell me what to do with it I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,
Jean

Tamia, wave
Take from one who tried that one, does zip..might spruce up your armor, but that's it. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />
I bought mine back, I thought I needed it to charm my stuff, but nope...just makes it pretty. wink
Saw little difference in cost after embellishing an item and never saw what I did to it frown
