I agree Ingie. Charisma, to me, is worthless in all the characters. You pick up enough stuff along the way.

VHLMagic, you are pretty far along with both of your characters having Wilbur. (Don't get too attached to Wilbur) I'm also playing two at the present, Vamp and Battlemage. I too am exporting as I go. I'm thinking of keeping a Dark Elf running at the same time and I really would like to try the Wood Elf cause I've always liked bows and ranged stuff in RPG's but she's so weak at the start.

The expansion is due out in days and I don't think I'll be ready for it. I'm really getting immersed in this game again getting my characters up to snuff to export.

Hi,

I now have Wilbur in all 3 of my games.
Why not get use to him? How long can I have his help?

I finally figured out how to use the shield.
I looked and looked in the book and couldn't find how to equip it but by accident I found out that all you have to do is put sword and shield in the same spot. Hmmm go figure.

Before I found that out I had them in sparate circles at the bottom so it was either I use the sword or I use the shield but not together.

Now that my people are getting stronger....I am beginning to enjoy the game more. smile

Oh Magic,
That's how I found out about the shield. Also found out if you can't accept a shield with a weapon it pops out. lol By the time you really get use to Wilbur and his company and fighting you will lose him.

I have now got them all loaded. Out of the 6 the hardest to start with is the Seraphrim..She is just not strong enough or quick enough until you can get her up in skills. The Wood Elf worked well for me John, I found a Wood Elf bow almost at once and she's good with it.

The gladiator, now there's a bus. I tell you, he's a mess. Reminds me of the guy in BG who had the pet name Boo..dumb as an ox and just about as strong.

Still like the Battlemage,Vamp and Dark Elf.all at Crow's Rock now.
Wood Elf has Wilbur, the other two just starting out, level 5 for them I think.
I think I'm going to have to make a decision and stick with one..between the 3 at Crow's Rock..hard decision though.

Are there more "magic spots" then before? I sure seem to be finding a lot of them.

i played the vampire in the original game and it was a lot of fun. there is not enough new content in plus for me to bother with it as it would be essentially replaying the same game which i don't do. will have to see if the expansion has a brand new main quest and new major areas to explore before buying it.

VHLMagic I was kind of half joking about Wilbur. When we played before several players complained about missing Wilbur when they lost him. You do get other help though when Wilbur leaves.

I really like my Dark Elf now. I got him going and he's really getting powerful. Using two swords in one weapons slot and that funny looking duel weapon in the other. I'm not sure which runes to concentrate on though with him. I have several saved up to trade (4 for 1) but don't know whether to get the explosions or the poison.

The characters I'm concentrating on now are Vamp, Dark Elf and Battle Mage and I have Wood Elf waiting in the wings (did get her up pretty good with multible arrows) and of course my old faithful Seraphim is always standing by.

Hi everyone
Sounds like you're having fun with Sacred. I have a few questions about the game:

Is there much npc dialogue?

Are there lots of towns with different look/feel and traders?

What are the quests like? Kill this, fetch that? - or are they more detailed.

I have the opportunity to purchase sacred plus - on special at eb games....

Thanks

Sacred is fun, very huge though..
Hi pantheon wave
Thought the best thing to do for you is hook you up to the offical website..can get all the information and screen shots there..then if questions, let us know..

We're now doing the Sacred Plus edition, which this gives details on .. along with details on the new expansion which I just got word today is in the mail.

this is the description of the expansion pack from the official site:

Quote:
Underworld contains 2 new characters within an even greater world of Ancaria, including vast regions such as the Pirate Isles, mystical forests and deep, twisting caves. Hundreds of new quests, monsters, weapons and new set items can be found for characters old and new.

Underworld also expands in the multiplayer mode with the addition of a friends list and much more.
based on that, i will be passing on it. while it says lots of new quests, there is no mention of a new main quest. the new small miscellaneous quests that are in each town in the new areas are not enough for me and i would not be starting a new character as that would mean replaying so without a new main quest plotline like other expansion packs have there is no reason for me to buy it. too bad frown this is disappointing to hear.

Hi all,

I am so glad to hear that I will have other help when I loose Wilbur. smile Although by that time I may not need help but we will see.

I am now beginning to think twice about getting Scared plus or the expansion if they are going to be pretty much the same stuff as the original Sacred.

The expansion is totally different.
At the website I provided you, click on the expansion..Sacred: Underworld.

The other thing that Plus did was correct a lot of bugs that the original had.like quests, especially the ones timed..that you couldn't do.

But, if you have Sacred, play that; I would download the patch for it as the patch fixed a few things.
Then wait and see if Underworld sounds interesting when some of us start playing it.

For me, Plus was worth it..and after having sold the original and wanting to play the expansion, knew I had to start over so did so with Plus.

It's a good game, I like the quests given and enjoy the characters..not so sure about the gladiator one(he's growing on me though), but I like the others..
The thing I dislike the most, is the constant re-spawning of areas you cleared..drives me nuts.
I like to explore a bit without having to always be fighting to take a peek in areas..but it's a fault I can live with and still enjoy the game.

Okay, playing today..Have to decide on which character I want to export to expansion.

John, wave
have you decided yet??

Ingie

Ingie, I'm torn between my Seraphim, Vamp and Dark Elf. I'm kind of leaning towards my Dark Elf as he is really getting powerful. His Sudden Fiery is awesome. Of course the light thingy on my Seraphim is pretty good as well.

My Dark Elf is going after Sheerifa in the plains now so I might got to my Vamp and catch up. Don't know how high a level you need in order to export to the expansion so I'll probably wait for a while to get it and see how other people are enjoying it.

VHLMagic, you'll be alone again for a while after losing Wilbur but you should be strong enough to handle it. I wasn't too fond of Wilbur anyway he kept dying all the time.

Well guess I'll get my Vamp to catch up with my Dark Elf. These characters are so uniquely different that it is fun to play different ones.

Hi all,

I just realized something in Sacred Plus. My horse never dies!!! In the original Sacred I gave up using a horse cause he died all the time. Now he's always there to transport me all I have to do is whistle. I dismount, of course, to fight but a horse is nice to travel the map.

Speaking of traveling the map, I seem to recall that there was a map someplace that showed all the portals locations but can't seem to find it. Anyone know anything about this?

Well back to my Vamp. She has Wilbur now and I'm just doing side quests and trying to find runes and build up experience.

ingie,

did you read what i quoted. that came directly from the official site which you linked to . what is so different. were you reading from a differnt part of the website. if so link me directly to that page. there is NOT one single mention of a new main quest--the initial game had one which was divided into several acts. why no mention of that. without a new storyline, the expansion is just more general exploring and leveling up and opportunity to try out new characters which hold ZERO interest to me as that is replaying as somehow i doubt that the expansion pack areas is made for level 1 characters as people like you are leveling up characters to bring into the expansion. therefore if i was to play the epxansion i have no choice but to use my vamp character if it is not geared for level 1 characters. and without a new plot, it is pointless for me.

i am glad you are excited about the expansion pack ,wish i could say the same.

Zanthia, happydance
I gave up on the gladiator and I think my Seraphim too..been there done that..wish my old puter hadn't of crashed, she was awesome, but a lot of work to get her leveled and spell worthy to do lots of damage.
Right now we're at Crow's Rock and I'm finding my way around that again..forgot how horrible that area is to get use to where things are..

Oh Magic, wave
wanted to let you know, you don't have to give Wilbur any health potions..he more or less faints and then bounces back full of health..so don't waste your potions on him. Give him a new sword every now and then as he levels and he'll get busy and be happy. He'll take a shield if usable, but sometimes grumbles about it.
Actually sometimes he gets in the way..but he's trying to be helpful. rotfl

Anyone been to Porto Draco yet? I have a side quest to get rid of the evil spirits at the Porto Draco Villa. I went into the house and killed all the spirits got a message group eliminated. Went into a grave type place and killed all the spirits and got a message Group eliminated. I can't find any more spirits but the blue marker is still on the Villa indicating that I still have more to do there. I don't remember having this problem before.

Has anyone done this quest?
