    Nope. You're not the only one. ;)

    It's just a game for a slightly different audience than let's say... GTA V. Hm, how to call it so I won't offend anyone...

    ... hmm...

    A game not for the masses... ?! :3eyes:

    :p

    Still playing but taking it slow. Oh btw am on hard diff dunno why I kept saying very hard...how noobish.

    Not quite sure re the attacks on my stronghold...auto resolve or manual?

    Think am keeping to Pally/Wizard/Rogue/Ranger/Druid/Priest. Whilst I'd like another pure tank the ranger's bow skills are good and the rogue is just 2 damm usefull.

    Plus if used right he hits very hard and has some surviveability. Kinda wished I had chosen wolf form for druid...bear ok has dr but misses a fair bit.

    Also I made a druid with lowish int which I should have put higher for spell durations etc..still I wanted him as a second tank hasnt quite worked out that well...

    p.s My main tank is pally who can miss but is very tough.

    Sounds like you arent using stealth enough. Get a char to spot the enemies and then have your tanks form a wall with casters behind...

    Also set up a trap ideally just through a doorway.. then use your mage to cast a spell at the enemy, chilling cold or rolling flame a good opener (or lightning bolt etc)

    Then hide the mage and I generally start buffing the tanks (armour spell) and then get my ranger to mark target then wound and send in the pet.

    Then if you have a druid something like tangleroot or barkskin (another buff for your tanks).

    After that get focus on one at a time but dont let your tanks move from doorway, this will stop the enemy going for your caster.

    In open areas you arent going to be able to use a doorway but general principle is the same.

    If in doubt use all your spells you can always get another campfire but yes I know this is a bit of bore.

    One level of a dungeon I had to go back to the inn x2, still now I just got the confusion and firewall spells the hard fights are a lot easier.

    Make sure u have some enchanted weps.

    Ahh and if you spot an enemy caster use your ranger or someone with a fast spell to interrupt.

    Why did i double post? Sry strange move there..

    I'm still waiting for there to some kind of sale or special deal for this game. Anyone know of any sales going on for this one? Promo codes? Everyone still seems to have it at regular release price...

    It's actually $18 on there but that's a way better deal than anywhere else, so I attempted to purchase it! I say attempted, because although the site claims to accept American Express, it declined my purchase right at the end saying "Sorry, but only Visa or Mastercard are accepted at this time". Wtf??

    Their site says they take Amex and has the logo plastered everywhere, so why would they deny payment? I emailed support. What bs. I was hoping to fire up the game tonight :(
