Any use for those seldom used nature magic dd spells?

Though i found lightning a dissapointment when it came to dmg and such, but apparently the thing does damage to any enemy it passes through on its way to its target. Combined with its low mana usage it seems to not suck as hard as i orginally thought (would still rather use flash for higher dmg and ...

why so many mules? when you're solo just transmute'n stuff gives you more than enough cash for the best gear. i'm solo'n with a nature mage (30) who's got 10 in combat magic (for mana chant, practically impossible to play w/o it for a solo caster) and i've only got two mules (who i'm seriously think...

Pet dmg counts toward that magic school's skill increase. Its the main way group nature mages level, and the reason why they get such good melee oriented pets. I've went through many skill levels with my solo nature mage by just chain healing my pet while it killed. I could also just do it the lazy ...

Solo is possible and fun, but its alot easier with a group. two healer/nukers and two hitters will run through ds at an obscene rate on normal. Solo play usually involves both heavy potion use and/or a great pair of running shoes. When dealing with inventory in solo play i say transmute any and ever...

Its definately possible to solo. A popular way i've heard about was folks going pure melee till they get really high str(40s i think) then work on a magic school (have'n high hp and defense makes level'n spell levels on high hp monsters easy). I'm do'n a nature mage (with a little in combat so i can...

2 pure tanks(can make due with just 1) and 2 nature mages who have around level 5 skill in combat magic(for low level explosive powder). With all the healing at low levels you're pretty much unkillable and at high levels you not only get pretty good pets but a spell that lets you use all the cool co...

all magic levels on the damage you inflict. No matter if its nature or combat. If you want to level up nature i suggest you use a combination of pet summons(their dmg go to increaseing your nature magic), damage spells like flash(set a quick key to healing spells so you don't just stand around when ...

Do your summoning with protect image. I think you can still go over the 5 summon limit with that.

I'd try my best do do all the casting from a projected image. For low/mid level battles i'd use mislead and either send the...

I don't think people solo the game for the challenge, just a change of pace. Often you get to such a high level so quickly the game is often made alot easier than if you had a full or partial party(except for beastmasters, its possible but they blow... hard). Often only chapters 2 and 3 are challeng...

Get Celestial Fury ASAP. You can get it pretty darn early, all ya need are some potions of invis and a katana for good backstabs. Spoiler Its in the temple district, in the guarded compound. For the first floor a few monsters will spawn when you get close the stairs, just be hidden in shadows and ru...

Spoiler As for how ya lost it, i'd say it was prolly in a dream sequence when you're in the asylum. Other than the tears of bhaal thingy at the end of the game i don't think you can get it back. If you have TOB installed you can get it raised a point in Watchers keep. If i were you i'd just make due...

For healing you only need potions. All the potion only vendors are pickpocketable so drink a potion, use gloves of pickpocketing and rob them blind in safety. Its alot easier if you have TOB installed so can buy a potion case from Watchers keep vendors. Most of the time you'll be easily able to make...

Aerie would, but the dual classed one would have to get the holy symbol before you dual it, but... thats a butload of xp to get, but i guess its doable if you use shadowkeeper to up your xp.

Hmm, i wonder if you can use holy symbols from other clerics if you have the right alignment...
