Sacred 2 - 11/16/08 12:30 AM

Hi!
Carol here. I have a question about Sacred 2. Do you have ride a mount in the game? I remember riding a horse in Sacred but didn't like doing that because it was too cumbersome for me. I know that walking everywhere is much slower but I am afraid of missing out on some quests otherwise. I always try to get every quest if I can because of the experience and items found.
Thanks.
Carol

You do not have to ride a thing in the game. I have a green tiger that I love and it is no different than walking. It is not the same as having a horse in Sacred 1.

Oh Ana how cool! Can you post a picture of you on your green tiger?

Carol here.
I have another question about Sacred 2. Is there any kind of walkthrough available for this game? I have been searching the Internet but haven't been able to find anything.
Thanks.

Hi- grin

Can anyone tell me how big the world is in Sacred 2? I am not in a hurry, but have to deliver some gems to a guy in a big town, starts with a th and that is all I remember, but, there are not maps like of different stores, I see the ones, icons like for the traders and all. But how do you find spicific places?? By the way I am playing two games and two different characters, want to see how it goes.

Thanks

Re: Sacred 2 - 12/07/08 04:18 AM

Nope Maggie, haven't played it yet. I'm playing The Witcher. I can't play multiple games at the same time. My brain overheats rotfl

I found a site (Daily Game) that said
Quote:
This size is reflected in the game world, as well, which has 12 distinct regions spanning 22 square miles, plus two levels of underground dungeons. For those of you taking notes at home, that equates to six hours of real-world time walking from one side of the game world to the other. Fortunately, Sacred 2 also includes the ability to teleport to other areas of the map once they've been discovered, so players won't have to worry about spending 20 of those 25 gameplay hours traversing the world. Sacred 2 also includes armor-capable mounts ranging from tigers to horses, which further helps with the transport time.


Does that help?

Maggie the Sacred 2 world is pretty big. For a map to see just what is what you can go here.

To find where you are supposed to go you can hit the L key and find the particular quest and then a white triangle will appear on your mini map and you go in that direction although it gets confusing when you have a lot of quests and the game doesn't separate completed so you have to hunt for the quests. Also if you look on the world map (M key) the white circles will show you where you need to go to complete which quest.

You have no idea how much you helped me with this game, first it was the riding animals, then the camera, how to change it. Now this. Thanks so very much, do I need to print out that map do you think or will I find it on my game??

Thanks again

Carol here.
I have a couple of more questions. I just installed the game today with the updates and the patch. Why can't I choose another character besides the Seraphim and why is the game SOOOO slow? I click on the Shadow Warrior and I never get him. The screen is just stuck there so I have to physically shut off my computer and start it up again.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

Sounds to me as though you're having problems with the last patch 2.31. I had similar problems after updating and had to uninstall and reinstall the game with all the patches except the 2.31 and the game works all right for me now. I've avoided the patch ever since.

A lot of other people seem to have had trouble with that patch and some don't. You can read about some of the fixes here.

Re: Sacred 2 - 12/15/08 07:18 PM

Thanks, Guys!
I decided to uninstall the game and then reinstall it. This time I can't even get into the game because I get a "Startup Error." I sure don't know what's going on. I have a powerful enough computer to handle the game. I think I am going to have to put more RAM on my computer but that doesn't explain why I was able to play into the game when I installed it the first time. Also, I was not going to install the updates and the latest patch the second time. I guess I will have to call the Nerds on Call people to help me.
Thanks. again.

Sorry you're having a problem Carol! I'm not tech savvy, but are you sure you uninstalled completely ? You can go to your start up menu, select search, and put in the game name. Also, have you tried our own bugs and glitches forum? They're very helpful.

Re: Sacred 2 - 12/16/08 08:50 PM

Hi!
I have another question about this game. I uninstalled the game and then reinstalled it. No go! I did a Search and found that some of Sacred 2 did not uninstall so I deleted those files. I have not reinstalled (for the third time) yet. My question is: I looked at the requirements for this game and saw that 1GB of RAM is required. I do not have this amount of RAM so could that be part of the problem? If so, I will upgrade my computer and try again.
Thanks for any information you could give me.
Carol

Re: Sacred 2 - 12/17/08 01:59 AM

Carol I'm no expert but I would say that you do need at least the minimum requirements, especially in RAM, which in the case of Sacred 2, is 1GB. The game might load with less but you're bound to have problems.

Also how current is your Graphics card? That sometimes creates problems as well.

Specs are:

Windows XP / XP64 / Vista / Vista64
2.4 GHz Processor
1 GB Available System Memory
256 MB 3D Video Card (Nvidia GeForce 6800 / ATI Radeon x800)
DirectX Compatible Sound Card
20 GB Free Hard Drive Space
DirectX 9.0c

Upgrading your RAM is a good idea in any event because the newer games are all requiring lots of RAM.

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/04/09 01:06 AM

Hi, Guys!
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you about my problems with playing this game. I installed 4 G's or RAM and then discovered that I needed a better Graphics Card. So I got one of those. What a difference!!! I have been playing the game now for a couple of weeks without any problems whatsoever and really love this game. I am playing as a Seraphim and am Level 27.
I do have another question though. If I played as another character when I am finished as the Serephim, are the quests the same (I guess I mean the side quests)?
Thanks for any information that you can give me.
Carol

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/04/09 03:41 AM

That's great that you got it up and running mAMMU!

The quests are the same you can just approach them in a diffrent manner since your character has different attributes.

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/12/09 01:52 AM

Hi, Guys!
I am having so much fun with this game. There really are a lot of quests which makes it more fun. I do have another question, though.
I seem to have missed a whole chapter somewhere along the line (Chapter VI - Visitors First). I went from Chapter 5 to Chapter 7 (Throne of Conflict)even though Chapter 6 did show up with just the title of Visitors First. Can I go back to Seraphim Island and continue from there to do Chapter 6? Is there a lot of quests, etc., in Chapter 6? I will finish up Chapter 7 first and then go back to other places if that is possible.
Thanks for any information you can give me.
Carol

Sorry, Guys!
I screwed up. It's Chapter 5 where Visitors First is listed as a quest.
Sorry.
Carol

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/14/09 02:44 AM

Sorry Again!
The quest is Victims First. Boy, do I feel stupid!!! You are all probably wondering where my mind is. One of those senior moments, I guess. Forgive me. I will do better with my next questions whenever I need help.
Thanks for not replying and asking me if I am loony or something.

Posted By: threads

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/14/09 04:18 PM

Carol - now it is my turn to show how stupid I can be lol

Yesterday had to get a technician to help install this game. So it is up and running. In anticipation of starting the game some day I got a local firm to copy the manual into A4 size. It has come out rather dark and there are still parts I cannot read, especially the small icons, even with a magnifying glass.

On page 12 there are two sections - A/In the upper left corner (of the full game screen I assume) is a portrait of your character with information notification.
1) The red bar shows the current health of your character.
2) The green bar fills up with the experience your character has earned. When it is full your hero/heroine gains a new level.
3) A small number in the circle to the left shows your character's new level. (I've been trying to discover how to level up grin
4) a blinking cross here shows you have unspent skill points.
Sooo.....where and how do I spend them? This reminds me of the Witcher, and I never did get the hang of that. rotfl

Part B on that page concerns the map - my trusty magnifying glass may be able to cope with that if I send the manual back to be printed in black on white.

One more thing - am meeting characters who just want to talk. There are several tiny icons - am guessing which you click starts the conversation needed. Haven't yet held a conversation headscratch

Thanks in anticipation that someone, somewhere enlightens me. kissy

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/14/09 10:02 PM

Thanks, Nickie!
Yes, everything is fine now. I just went back to complete that quest. I just didn't go far enough when I was there the first time. As they say, you always learn something new all the time.

Reply to Threads. I too had to get a technician to help me with the install of this game when I had the new Graphics Card installed. Since I am not technologically minded, I need all the help that I can get, especially at my age. Sure hope you enjoy this game as much as I am.
Talk to you guys again, especially when I get on another game after this one. I have The Witcher to play yet and I understand that is another long game.
Later.

Please,please mAMMU stop a moment to explain how to use the unused points. Asking on bended knees. grin

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/15/09 08:35 PM

Hi, Threads!
In answer to your question about distributing unused points. I just put them into where my strengths to be. Just click on the teeny triangle in the right bottom corner of the strength you have chosen to increase (Strength, Stamina, etc.).
In the bottom part of that screen, just choose which attribute you want to increase and click on that teeny triangle to do so. I am not the smartest person to tell you which attribute you should choose. I just do what I think will help me in the long run. As for choosing which lore to pick, it is up to you. I chose Sword Lore, Shield Lore, Constitution, and 3 more (I can't remember right now what I did chose). It is all up to you. Just remember that you have to click on that teeny triangle on the right bottom corner of each attribute or strength to increase it. Hope that this answers your question satisfactorily. If not, I will try to explain it better.
Later.
Carol

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/17/09 12:17 AM

I'm BACK!!
I have a couple of more questions. How do I get into the city of Dyr-Laigh on Green Island? It's part of the Main Quest.
Also, where do I get the quest of Christmas Island which I have been reading a lot about? I haven't come across anything to do with this island.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/17/09 02:02 PM

Mammu, Oldman provided a great link in the other thread for a walkthrough. It's only partially completed, but I saw it does have stuff on the main quest and something about Christmas Island, saying the quest giver is Christmas Island Kobold, does that make sense? Here is the link.
Posted By: mAMMU

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/20/09 06:56 AM

Thank you, Nickie!
Just to let you know that I finished the game as a Seraphim and never did find the Kobold for Christmas Island. I am now playing the game again but as a Shadow Warrior. His Main Quest and Chain Quest are different but the Side Quests are pretty much the same. I don't play a game twice even on different levels of difficulty but I enjoyed this game so much that I decided to play as another character.
Thanks again for all the help that you given me so far.
Carol

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/20/09 07:03 AM

That's great Mammu! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself so well you're playing again with a new character. Now that's getting your money's worth! Can you tell yet which character you like better?
Posted By: mAMMU

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/22/09 07:39 PM

Hi, Nickie!
At this point, I think I like the Shadow Warrior better although both are very good. I actually like playing a male character better.
Now I have another question about the Christmas Island quest. Is there something or someone else that triggers seeing the Kobold in the Thylesium Port to start the quest? That Kobold is not there so far in playing the Shadow Warrior either. I never did get that quest playing the Seraphim because that guy never appeared in the Port. Sorry to be so stupid but this has me baffled.
Thanks for your help.

Maggie I'm not sure what your question is. There are a lot of other places to go than where the orcs and elves are. You just follow the colored triangles on your mini-map. Especially the orange ones.

Re: Sacred 2 - 02/27/09 12:02 AM

Maggie, the orange pointer shows you the direction of the next step in the main quest and the blue pointer shows you the way to the active side quest. You can change the side quest any time by clicking on a grey circle on you main map or on a quest description in your log book. What I usually do in a new town is to collect as many side quests as possible. Then I check the main map to see where they play out. I try to do all the close ones before I venture further. So I click on the circle/quest whose location I favor. The active circle enlarges a bit so you can tell it apart from the other ones. The only thing that messes up this system is when I get an escort quest right off the bat. I prefer to leave them until I've cleared out the area a bit. I've lost too many escortees.

You make perfect sense to me, it has not before. I know what you mean about escourtes, I have had two guys with me forever, who want to learn how to kill deer. I do not know how to get rid of them. Thanks so much for your wise answer and help. Appreciate it.

Hi! Loony4labs!
I would put this game up there with Diablo and the Gothic series and most of the other really good RPGs. I just read today on Gamebanshee that there may be an expansion to Sacred 2. Bring it on!!! Can't wait.
Thanks again for all your help with this game and all the others I have needed help with. Your guys ROCK.
