Hello everyone:

I'm having a great time with this game! I have the strategy guide, so haven't had to ask anything yet here, but now I do have a question that I can't find an answer for.

I have 4 people in my party and want to add a fifth, a pet. The innkeeper keeps telling me that I can't add a fifth until I become a "true veteran". When is that? I'm assuming it's a level. think Or do I become one after a certain chapter?

Hi Jean, <img border="0" alt="[santa]" title="" src="graemlins/santa.gif" />

First time through the game you may only have 4 in your party-which includes a pet..so pet and 3.
After you beat the game, you can then move on the next stage I think Veteran and pick up a 5 party and the 3rd time 6 can be in it..strange and at first hard to grasp for me..
I used a Ranger for me, Got the half-giant,
Had Taar the nature mage and had Chilly..the ice element. Darn glad I had him by the end of Act I.
Fun too, watching him grow and get so excited over the goodies I fed him..but he and the half-giant were by far my best fighters in Act I.
Suggest also that you save at every teleporter you run across as you probably know my now..your game always begins at that Acts town teleporter.

Have fun, I loved this game and had a grand time exploring

Thanks, Ingie. I guess I'll have to play it through again, then, to get more characters. I didn't know that. I have a half giant, Lothar (a knight), Taar (a nature ice mage), Deru the Ranger (who also has a little nature), and myself, a combat fire mage. I sure wish I could have a pet now.

I'm leveling all my characters up the way the strategy guide recommends, so they're pretty tough. And, I'm trying to do all the secondary quests.

I think I enjoy this one more than Dungeon Siege I, since there are more characters to interact with. I'll know better the further along I go.

Thanks for your help!

Jean

No problem and I agree I loved this game a bit more, I think it's having a little more control over the characters.

Your party sounds good, you'll use Taar and she has the ability to freeze and heal..very useful.

That's the giant..man is he good..he was my work horse and did all and more than I could have thought possible.

You can always trade out one in the Inn and go to the pet shop and pick up a pet..just for the fun of it.

Some of the other characters in the story will have quest once they join your party..so some I picked up just to get their quests done.

After a bit, you'll be a pro..happy hunting

Hi Ingie:

So far there's no one hanging out at the Inn for me to trade. I'm still pretty much in Act 1. I haven't gone through the Kithraya Caves yet, and I have a feeling after I go through those more people will show up at the Inn.

I don't know who I'd let go, though. I really get attached to my characters after building them up. rotfl Everytime we pick up new equipment after a battle I shift things around, which is why it sometimes takes me forever to finish a rpg which is detailed. I really fuss over the equipment.

Ack, another me lol ..I do the same thing..I want everything neat and in order. I call it "going shopping" and I can spend hours doing just that if I find a lot of goodies. thinking DD here, egads wonder I ever finished.. rotfl

I try out so many different character's at first too.
That takes me a while because I have to see if I like their actions and manners. So, that will take me days..
Hey it's our little fantasy world and we want it like we enjoy it!!!! bravo

What I want to know is, where are the good looking men in the game? I was happy to see my red-headed mercenary at the beginning of the game, but all I see now are female dryads. duh Now, Sacred Underworld had male dryads, also, and they looked pretty good. As a matter of fact, that's why I kept getting killed -- watching them. woozy

Will I ever see my red-head again? rotfl

You two need to take a cold shower. rotfl Ah no, your redhead is toast, sorry to say.

You can dismiss one of your party at any time, and until you dismiss (or not take someone when they are available) you won't have anyone at the inn to choose from. Some characters are very helpful in a particular spot, and then a liability afterwards.

Ahhh, yes, the blacksmith! I remember him. laugh No more redhead? cry

That's a shame I have to dismiss someone to see a new person at the inn, Nickie. Right now I'm doing Taar's quest. Maybe in a little while I'll dismiss one of them to see who shows up at the inn. It's a hard decision to make.

My advise is CLICK SLOWELY threw the dialog. There's a active bug. If you click too fast threw the dialog your Quest may become UNCOMPLETABLE. It happened to me. The talk is too fast. Thats the bug. The save system should have been better too. So talk slow.

Thanks for the dialog tip, Maryjo! I'll try to be careful not to click through too fast.

Nickie and Ingie, I found a redheaded blacksmith in an underground hideout. bravo I'm trying to help him locate his anvil but my team isn't strong enough yet. Too bad I can't take him with me. rotfl

**Edit Here** Jean, that quest for the blacksmith is hard..and it leads to several others, so you'll see him for a bit..good luck..just fight everything behind the walls and doors

What I had in my group...oh lookie at the pretty snowmen!

Anyway, what I had was...myself as a Ranger, the half giant Lothlar, Taar and Ice Element for Act 1
In Act 2..I think is when I began changing..I put Chilly in the Inn..I later released him, just had to make sure I didn't need him again..and tried one of the fire element pets..I didn't keep him long though, changed him out for Finnala..who could complete a the Caverns-fixed the elevator down thingee- She's a fire mage, so I kept her with me..I would change in and out between her and the half-giant to get the other quests..
but always went back to that combo..It worked for me, and was fun changing to see how each handled the load..

The one you meet in Act II..Evangala I think-is very good at fighting..and you'll need her for she's part of the main quest..but just for a bit of time..

Hope that helps a bit..one of my joys in RPG is character selection..I love seeing who does what..

THanks, Ingie! scared

When is the other half-giant available? I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to take him for the blacksmith quest since the fighting is all close up, rather than my ranger.

You know, I think it's in Act II..have you run into in Act I??..

Making the half-giant a melee fighter is the best way to use him I thought, he was a power horse.

In the caverns, you'll find a lever and platform, it will be broke and will tell you, someone like Finila(however it's spelled) could fix it. You'll find her in Act II by a bridge..

Good luck,
I know what's lurking in those caverns happydance
