Ah, OK, thanks. I thought it was pretty obvious that you were supposed to use lightning to kill the golem, it says it in the bestiary entry on the golem, I think. I just wasn't smart enough to think to stand outside the triangle before using it I have to say I found the fight with the golem pretty e...

THANKyou. I guess I kept missing that very narrow window. How stupid to put her there for such a short space of time, and not give any clue in the journal or anything :rolleyes:

How do I finish this chapter 3 quest? SPOILER

SPOILERS I'm near the end of chapter 3, at the point where Triss says "Finish up any business you have in Vizima before proceeding." So I want to finish up, and the one quest I have remaining (that I know of) is that of the nurse in the temple quarter who says her grandmother has something in her ce...

Replies: 16

Not exactly. If you read some books or watch movies or play games with a medieval fantasy theme, there are some prejudices among each of the different races. Take for example the Lord of the Rings (both movie and book). One of the members, Gimli (a dwarf), dislikes elves very much. In Warcraft 3: T...

As far as inventories go, I think the less realism the better. I understand the natural inclination of game makers and writers to want to make things more realistic, and I've thought about this in regard to others games, but I can't think of any advantage of making things more real when deciding wha...

I just beat the golem myself, and I was never able to figure out what the pillars are for. I actually asked that in my own thread just earlier today. To awaken it you need to speak to a bunch of people. Chiefly Kalkstein. He (or someone) tells you to get two books, yes? I think you talk to the Antiq...

Wow, good responses guys (and girl), thanks alot About the autopsy thing, it is now in my journal as a failed quest.

Yeah, I think maybe I made a little mess of things by doing them in the wrong order. I got the quest to bring the gravedigger dwarven liquor, but it was at the same time as "get permission from the guards or Thaler to get into the cemetary." And I wanted to get into the cemetary, so I ignored the li...

Help in Chapter II, spoilers galore

SPOILERS Obviously, don't read on if you don't wanna know what happens in chapter II. So I think I'm most of the way through Vizima. I have eight of the ten Sepharthingies, I've cleared most of the suspects and know that Raymond is now actually Javed (which explains why my amulet gets twitchy around...

I didn't even know the grandma could cause problems or kick you out; first time I spoke to her she said something like "what did you bring me?" so I gave her something fairly valuable, like a ring or a chunk of cash, maybe 50 gold. Ever since when I enter the house she's all flowers and honey and sa...

I always hated how games let you select various abilities, only to make bosses immune to almost everything (NwN I'm looking at you). Totally, this is exactly what I'm talking about. What good is the ability to blast away enemies with fireballs and lightning bolts and stuff if it won't work against ...

Yeah, I guess I was hoping someone had cracked the game open and examined its brains. But falling short of that, people's inferences based on their own obervations are useful, such as those that have already been given. I'm one of those people who always wants to know how the game works, but I'm als...

Thankyou, it's not much, but that is the sort of information I'm looking for :)
I can confirm that I'm not too much further on than you, but later on against a boss-ish bady I experienced alot of pain and was rendered completely helpless for short periods, so that seems to be one of its effects.

Game rules and mechanics

I have a few questions about the mechanics of the game, mostly combat. There are spells and effects that cause fear, hex, pain, knockdown, stun and others, yet I'm not sure how these things work. Knockdown and stun make a creature vulnerable to a coup de grace, but is there a difference between the ...

I'm still fairly eary in the game but on the whole I have to agree with the original post. I, like the others in this thread who are complaining, do not have a problem with sex, violence or naughty langauge, but that is not what we're complaining about. The problem is the "adult" elements seem to ha...

If you haven't found it yet, it's very simple. Just don't give up your weapons with the first line of dialogue once you enter the place and get confronted by the handmaiden. Ask "who are you?" or something first, and you'll be fine. Hopefully you have a saved game in a useful spot...
