I am playing Two Worlds 1 again just for nostalgia. I made a full play through before with a melee hybrid: Strength of God, Grapple Ivy, Reflector Shield, Berserk, Defensive Combat/crit guy.
Now I am playing as a pure mage using all schools of magic (4 elements, necromancy)
At level 17 now playing only middle difficulty (not hard mode) because higher HP in monsters didn’t sound fun for a mage in a game that damage spells not so powerful.
I consider the enemies my test cases and try different magic strategies! I found water has crowd control I didn’t know about and also found the best direct damage strategy isn’t to spam your best spell, but rather to alternate a booster spell (overpower or concentration) and then damage spells.
It was my first RPG and I really enjoyed it, though I only played the easiest setting. I loved the way you could improve your gear/weapons (?) by stacking an identical piece on top of the one you were using.
Voice acting never bothered me, maybe because it was my first game of this type. Before that I was a city builder.
Never could get into playing a mage though. Iirc for one thing you couldn’t shoot fire/lightning, etc, from your staff which seemed a bit odd to me. :undecided:
Haven’t really tried TW2, do have it but it doesn’t have quite the same appeal as the original.
yeah I ended up jumping onto GOG.com last night and reinstalling TW:Epic Edition. Perhaps I’ll fire it up tonight and see if I can remember why I stopped playing…either that or I’ll play some more Batman:AA or Rebel Galaxy
I have to say, I’m finding myself enjoying Two Worlds - I also find myself blasting through the dialogues and just reading the quest log…
When I get to an area where I’m being overwhelmed, I head back and take a different path. Finally found some decent armor, and learned Stoneskin…talk about a nice passive skill
Money is starting to roll in nicely now as well.
I need to come up with a strategy for fighting the Glacial (Glacier?) Orcs - they’re a little hard to kite than the Groms…and I just came across the Dwarves. Perhaps tonight I’ll learn how badly they’ll hand my arse to me
Oh, I’m mostly concentrating on fighting skills. I have Water, Fire and Necro magic skills, but I only use firebolt to stun archers when they’re trying to run away, or to distract them from shooting me as I run at them - Water is fantastic for healing…and Necro? Well, I kinda learned that on accident
