Alice, if you're exporting your characters into an empty slot then you are duplicating. If I understand you correctly you want to update your exported character. If you click on your old exported character and then click on export, the game will ask you if you want to overwrite the existing character/file. Click yes and you keep updating your present character. You can then use the other slots to export other types.

VHLMagic I read somewhere on one of the Sacred boards about characters turning into rabbits if you used cheats. As a guess I'd say that that's probably what your characters will look like if you use them in Multiplayer mode. I don't think it effects the Single Player though. I can't find out first hand cause I can't get the cheats to work.

Well, I've gotten my Vamp, Dark Elf and Wood Elf to the end of the game and they are all over level 40.

I'm now working on my Seraphim and have her at level 12 and just got Wilbur. So far, it's between Wood Elf and Seraphim as to who progresses to the Underworld. After I get Sera up to 40 and finish with her I'll probably give Battle Mage a chance just to be fair. (He does have powerful magic). Anyway by the time I get them up and ready maybe Underworld will be available at retail stores he says with tongue in cheek, holding his breath.

I'll be interesting to see if anyone notices the sounds in Underworld. I have none from my character, but the backgroud noise and the chatter from the goblins and grunts from the orcs are way loud.
I can't figure out which sound I need to raise or lower, has 3 settings..I tried voice, that got the goblins mutters to full volume..like "me lazy".."oh mama" "me see hospital in future" cute, but I miss my mage and his wit..along with the dwarf's ooh-rah before battle, anyone figure it out let me know..probably should check out the forum ... sugarjets, I don't like that thing though

Has anyone been to the Inn in Braverock, the one with the Ascaron sign outside? I remember this place from when I played a long time ago, but this time my vamp spoke to one of the NPC's outside the locked door on the right side and suddenly they all attacked! One of them had a key to the door and I was able to get to the basement levels, I dont remember doing this before..I won't spoil it but there is some pretty good loot down there, and the bottom floor seemed to be Vampire-specific...it's pretty amazing how much there is in this game if you just tool around.

I'm compiling a list of the most annoying enemies, feel free to contribute:

-goblin shaman: run away and summon help, very hard to target
-skeletons: won't stay dead
-sakkara priests: helium-voiced runners that summon help
-anything that flies: again, hard to target
-those guys on the horses: waaaay too many hitpoints, and you have to kill the horse first!

Hi all,

I agree with all the choices of annoying enemies and also add tall Ice Giants that swarm you and they take a while to get rid of.

Wow I had a surprise yesterday when a very big Dragon showed up near Frostgard Castle.

Has anyone noticed the different speed at which the different caracters run?

My fastest runner is the Vampiress next in line is the Seraphim. The next fastest is the Battlemage and then the Gladiator.

I wonder why they run at different speeds?

Hi all, wave
I like your list Schwab, but I would so have to put those blasted golden goblin champions on the list..
Finally went into the forum and figured out the voice and sound thing..turned off the 3D, reset the volume controls to default and hey, we have characters that speak.
I've had to start over as I said, so here I go again.
Using Mage and Dwarf-which btw has the funniest start cut-scene than any other character..it is a riot.
Got to get him a horse, talk about running slow..he waddles.
I think my Mage is a smoker, if you could hear him wheeze away after a little running you'd see what I mean.
There are a lot of little "extras" in this game.
I remember that tavern, but not the rest of that Schwab, interesting..wonder if it depends on which character as to the goodies you get?

I found a great piece of equipment and on the look-out for more..it's for the Mage..titled
Dogrite's Ghost..something like that, shoot should haven written it down. When I go back in I will and Edit to spell it correctly.
It is canary yellow..right now have the helmet, the stats are unreal and has 2 slots to boot.

Schwab, thanks for sending the information again, I saved to file instead of print out which I always seem to lose.
I'll send you all a snap of the Dwarf when I can.

Hi all,

I don't know if anyone else has, or had, this problem but I was missing a lot of stuff (possible set items) because I was getting too lazy to hunt for it after I killed oodles of baddies. I have discovered the take all key and now I just pick up everything and when I get too full and can't get to a store I throw away what I don't want/need that is taking up too much room. Have found several set items for my seraphim by killing everything that moves and takng everything that is dropped.

In case I'm not the only dummy that missed this cool key the default is A on the keyboard.

That's a big dragon! Yikes! I'm presently being incinerated by the dragon in the desert. My fault, I have only really worked on the fireball spell, and it's so strong it is able to wipe out even those with big resistance. But not this dragon. laugh I'll give it a few more tries, and then head off to try another strategy, trying to find more spells dropped to get my ice shards up...

Nickie, I've noticed the game gives you a lot more runes when I play the mage, I guess they did that because that characters relies on them so much. Just run around the desert area and you should have quite a few after awhile.

VHL, I've seen a lot of items, like boots, that have +(#) to "speed" which increases your movement speed. Not sure if one of the attributes contributes to run speed also.

John, that "loot all" key is certainly handy, been using it all along. Did you know you can also go into Options and set limits on what your character will auto-loot? You can choose to have her just pick up special items and/or gold instead of everything.

That set I've got one piece of for my mage is the dagowit's ghost..dagowit's mind trick is the name of the helmet.

Nickie, lol
I don't think he can climb on a horse..should be interesting anyway.

rotfl Ingie, sounds like more good writing in the expansion - such a riot! Mine's on the way, so I can have a dwarf too. Oh, and I just picked up part of the set you were talking about, isn't that funny! I think I have two pieces now, good stuff.

Thanks Schwab, yeah, I'll be desert hunting. Kind of reminds me of the endless desert in DD.

I didn't know you could make the game do that - only pick up gold, etc. That's great! You do know that you can just click on the little hands and it works like the "A" key, right?

Hmmm, I'll have to check that out. I'm really, at this point, only looking for special items so that would come in handy. Thanks Schwab

My seraphrim has partial of two sets on her now. Man, those set items are cool. I went for ages not finding any then found two in one session. I used some slots to add poison resistance which is handy when headed through Drow Elf territory.

Hi all,

My Vampiress is the only one so far that has 2 pieces of a set.

There are 6 pieces to this set and it was weird because when I picked up all after killing a bunch of baddies in the north I found a 2nd bracer which was the same thing I was wearing of the set.

The set is called Thorwyn's Set.

I for the heck of it started a new game just to see what the imported person with the rabbit ears would look like and they looked normal so not going to worry about it.

It seems the that only one person (My Seraphim) has a ruin for a teleporter in inventory with which I don't know what to do with.

I will keep it for now but it can be sold. Not sure if i missed activating a teleporter somewhere so have to keep an eye out. Sometimes the teleporter is shown on the map but you haven
't activated it yet.

Hey Nickie wait until you see the dragon guarding the Frostguard Castle. Now that is what I call a really really big dragon. yipes!!!

Oh and the Battlemage has a funny thing he says when you let him stand there for a while. Wish I could remember the exact saying but it was something about the pause button being used. Have to let him stand around again just to see what it was hehe. smile

My Mage usually, says, "hey anybody there?, Are you asleep?"
Can't remember some of the others, but so cute.
I love the Vamp when her inventory is full "What do think maids and servants are for? I refuse to be a pack mule" Ms High and Mighty, I guess. wink

Nickie lol

Hi everyone.

Ingie, further back on this thread you mentioned your horse is not changing colour as it did in the early Sacred. Well, I'm nudging level 20 and still have the same horse - Lucky Jim is his name - lol - called him that when I found a jeweled saddle early on which gives him protection of 100. Last time we played my horses not only didn't turn up after a while - the one which took his place was always a different colour, but also minus his saddle.

Wish the character's inventory was like the one in NWN, with several pages.

At the moment I've just started escorting the kidnapped wives back to their husbands. Be difficult as there are still a few Hill giants around.

Soon after I was told to go to Icecreek Dale I found a portal behind Crow's Rock Castle. (can't find it now!) I saved and went through to be faced with the huge dragon. Soon discovered I need more XP so went back and got myself up several levels before heading north again.

While in Slater's Grave some time back I'm dashed if I coould find the nasty merchant I have to dispatch. Can someone give me a nudge in the right direction please. Would appreciate it.

Am I mistaken - thought the mini-map showed the whole of the local area. Feel sure it did before the expansions, etc.

It really is fun playing Sacred this time. Have difficulty tearing myself away. laugh

Be back.

Hugs,

Alice
