I finally loaded Sacred Plus. Wanted to play awaiting the expansion.

There is a difference so far in what I've played.
Couple of quests I could not get done before-especially timed ones-now can. And areas that just were not there before now are.
Didn't address the fact that respawn is overkill, shame on that one.
But, still I do enjoy the game.

Have 4 characters going to see who I'll pull over onto expansion.
I have to say the Vampire one is fun. Those spells are down right wicked. evil
Also have a BattleMage-very effective.
A Wood Elf, enjoyable, especially since I found her a Wood Elf Bow.
A Dark Elf-fun, pure fun..like the Duel weapons I have for the dark elf.

I know oldman is going to be playing; anyone else?

I didn't download the "Plus" I just bought the game.

Hi Ingie - yes I have played Sacred Plus and am waiting for the expansion. I was a dark elf and loved the game and had great fun, especially going to new areas. It is a game I would play again for sure but perhaps as something else.

I am now avidly awaiting for my expansion to be delivered - soon I hope.

I have been playing Sacred then Sacred Plus for months now. It takes a long time when playing only over lunch at work. Still playing a Seraphrim and she gets to be pretty wicked after a while.

I'll probably get the expansion and try a different class.

I keep looking at Sacred, but knew I want to get the plus version--Question, where on the box does it say Plus??? Is it prominent or does one have to read the fine print?

On the game I got it said Sacred + Plus+ thats how I realised that the Plus was included with a copy of the full Sacred game. I did however have the original copy of Sacred on its own, if that helps.

Sacred +Plus+ is a good game for beginners and those who have played for a while. It's easy point and click and the different character's are fun.

With the original you had the option of download of the +Plus+ but,I wanted the hard version of Plus.
The expansion for the game, something titled like "Under the city" is due out this year..and you have to have Sacred or Sacred Plus on board to play.

Pib, wave
I think we were playing together first time through, and I think Zanthia, oldman, Alice and..there goes the mind ..
The first time through I was a Seraphim, and Schwab helped me load pics of my gal..she was awesome and had some great spells.
Still need to add Gladiator. Right now, my two favorites are Vamp and Dark Elf I think.

L4L,
Please CYE with a location and description

Oh Ingie, how soon they forget! Sigh, you forgot me! cry At the time I was playing as a Battlemage, and it was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the Underworld expansion also. laugh

Oh Nickie, :kiss:

My true sidekick, me Tonto you lone ranger...
Battlemage, got him going now too..he's actually one of the better guys I got, I love the "Now you know why you shouldn't say bad things about mages" as he fries another goblin eater..His 'fire power' is one awesome show. praise
The Vamp has these lips you shoot at the bad guys and they go sailing through the air hitting one target after another..the bad guys look like a strawberry jam truck ran into them as they wander amok blindly before getting the kiss-"so sweet" she says. evil

Hi Ingie,

I went through the first time as a Seraphim and thought I'd try to get a different character.

I'm trying a Vamp this time getting ready for the expansion and I don't remember what the best attributes for her are when you level up.

Could anyone give me a clue?

Hi Ingie,

Those are skills and I've pretty much decided which of those I'm going to use.

But attributes are different for each class. For instance Vamp's Mental Regeneration is 0 when she starts so I assume she doesn't need (or use) this attribute. Since you only get one advancement point per level I was wondering which to concentrate on between:

Strength
Endurance
Dexterity
Physical Regeneration
Charisma.

I'm going to compare the Vamp and the Battle Mage and then decide which to do for the expansion. Although I really like my Seraphim and the Wood Elf is cool with her bow expertise but weak otherwise. Hard to decide.

Oh John, I'm such a nutter, I'm sorry. lol
I sure did misunderstand your plea didn't I? oops

Mine are like this:
Strength- more there
Endurance
Physical Regeneration
Dexterity-I use a bow, although not suppose to be that good at it and no skills for ranged weapon, I still like one handy..and good for the movements and kicks(she has one movement that is like speed walking)
I stick very few in Charisma and really don't need mental regeneration because she doesn't cast spells just uses her skills.

I like playing a different character each day. Right now trying to get everyone to Crow's Rock.
Got my Dark Elf there(have to say he's one of my favorites)
Vamp getting there today..
then tomorrow try either Wood Elf or BattleMage.
I still haven't loaded a Gladiator, but think i will and I loved my seraphim from the 1st time I played, but lost her when puter crashed, so may go ahead and try her again too.
Don't know at this point who'll I'll export into the expansion..but this Vamp is a fun one.

Thanks Ingie. It looks like Strength and Physical Regeneration are the two biggies for Vamp. My Seraphim I concentrated mostly Dex and Mental Regeneration if I remember correctly. My new Battlemage needs a lot of strength and Physical Regeneration. What's different about this game is that each character requires different skills and attributes depending on which route you want to take them. Can get very confusing.

I know what you mean John, I usually work with the skills and then eventually go in and do the attributes..I very seldom worry with Charisma when playing a single player..figure I would rather work with skills other than buying and trading, at some point(especially this game) you have enough loot not to worry about charming folks. And plenty of quests.

Started my Gladiator and Seraphim last night..talk about opposite ends of the poles..I think the Sera is still my favorite with Vamp and Dark Elf coming in behind her. Gladiator is..interesting, more like driving a Mac truck compared to a Honda accord rotfl

Hi all,

I have been getting back to play Sacred more these days and I have a Seraphim,Battlemage and Gladiator going.

I find that the Seraphim does better and has some good moves to servive longer that the Battlemage but I do like a lot of the spells the Battlemage has also. smile

I do have Wilbur with me in all of my games and hope he stays with me through the rest of the game.

I have been exporting all 3 of them as I go because can't decide which one I will use later on when I get the expansion. Hmmm maybe I will just keep 3 or more games going hehe.

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??
