I had much fun in BW until I realised that chances of finding good items to wear had got reduced so much due to the introduction of new attributes and items for the 2 new classes. I think I'd postpone BW for now and level up my original characters so they plow through everything in BW. [color="Red"]...

Was it a bug or not, I'm not sure but why did the Vai'kesh Seer receive no damage when I triggered Aether Blast? Other than that, it's truly so damaging that it seems unbalanced. 2 Summoners walking around = instant crowd clearing (with Powers ready, mind you ). About a NM with maxed Summon Bond and...

I was very frustrated by party moving in "Hold Ground" mode too. What you would need is the "Wait" command, which wasn't hotkeyed by default so you need to assign one for that . Your way of playing sounds familiar, i recall doing similar things during the ride with Finala through veteran. Personally...

My party had the Lap Dragon's Aura and a Nature Mage so it was constant Invulnerability :D .

I used Static Bolt to slow down his swing so I could get out of the way more easily. The curse used on him was Drown since I had NM using Frost Beam (Vine wouldn't get the benefit though it would reduce micro). He ended up chasing my CM around for awhile then decided to slug it out with my Dual Wiel...

Sadly to say, Vine is single target. The only possible mass immobilizing spell I could think of is Encase with chances to freeze due to the Freezing skill (quite effective actually since casting's very fast). Each Combat Mage build has rises and falls throughout the game which is fair enough. I have...

Nature mages do not get targeted as often as combat mages because they don't use curses, they don't do much damage compared to others. Although I agree that Vine is the most damaging spell, look at how long it takes her to cast it . She could be killed before the vine comes out . Nature mages simply...

I stood and fought for 2 secs, realized that my fighter was gonna die in the next so ran like hell again :laugh:. Healed, came back with Elemental Rage and Charged Shot triggered, ended it in 10 seconds with no one dead and great loots. Start to love them now, I even saved before fighting a mimics i...

Give the mages more attention I find the game much more enjoyable when handling glass cannons, not just going up and whack however you want because you just can not die with fighters wearing godly armor or ridiculous % health steal items. As of now, I have 3 glass cannons in my Vet party. They plow...
