I went through DS2/BW once and got to level 100, and played a ton before that group of characters, and haven't ever once used Summon Provoke lol. I don't let monsters come from behind, and if you have a tank attacking something on screen, it draws aggro. Usually if something slips by it takes 2 swin...

[color="Red"][...][/color] Combat Mages drop...ridiculous fast..it takes like 3 hits to take down a combat mage, it shouldn't need any explaining. I have Finala auto-casting Corpse Transmutation, adding like 60 armor. Still drops in 2 hits from a mini-boss. And I don't use add ons so the Aranna Lega...

Because once you use a power it has to recharge lol. Let's say you use summon provoke (merc/vet), by the time it has recharged there is no point in Aether Blast because either everything is dead or less than 1/3 life...serious setback considering you would be wasting anywhere from 50-90% of Aether B...

Change in Tactics

When I first started DS2 (and for almost all my RPG's involving multiple character control) my main is a tank. I have run through with a few other types but I don't like the weakness against bosses or constantly drawing aggro on a non-tank (i HATE that). And for anyone who has taken a combat mage in...

Simple. Magic Resists is ALL magic resists. An example of non-elemental magic is grasping vine. Physical damage is both melee and ranged. That "Hero's Amulet" you get from the start (and from Taar after her first quest) is Magic Damage reduced by 4% (i.e. 4% Magic Resists) And is a damn good startin...

Yes I tried doing that. I get the busy mouse-icon forever.
And yes everything worked fine before I moved, the DS2 is now reinstalled and my voice.ds2res is fixed. Still no BW :(
BW is so much better with the skills :(

Can't imagine it being anything significant at all. If you watch you could be standing still casting and you're CM gets lucky and DOESN"T get hit just in time for you to realize "I need to move him/her fast" I find it hard to believe that armor rating does little more than soften damage taken.

I think... First and foremost is "chance to be hit". If successful, chance to dodge the attack if it were successful. Chance to block if still successful. If blocking failed and you are finally hit...damage reduction from armor/spells is calculated and you take a numerical damage. Damage reflected i...

Broken World Problems

I have successfully installed DS2 on a new computer (no voices...error installing that file every time..but I don't care...music playlist FTW) I place BW in, click "install"...and nothing happens. I right click the icon and click explore, open the autoplay...nothing happens. Why can I not install BW...

The level 1 Nature Magic+Healing Magic skill Aquatic Affinity.

Level 24 Combat Magic skill Quickened Casting is just as effective.

My 2-3 member parties never have any trouble with any characters. Ganths/Dark Wizards/Valdis. Only the Overmage (with his completely overpowered fire ability that 1-hits every mage) poses a problem, and only his glacial aura hurts a tank. Brutal attack by the time you get to Ganth should recover too...

I don't ever play with more than 2 players so I don't know what to tell you about huge parties.

NOT HAVING TAAR USE GRASPING VINE IS A HUGE MISTAKE.

Grasping Vine IV is the best spell in the game, and not having her use it is just unthinkable.

Ice is effective, however, damage on grasping vine can get to like 15k+ maybe? And can be used on monsters on a higher plane (i.e. upstairs in dungeons/snowbrook haven). and on other sides of doors/walls. If Taar finds something upstairs/downstairs/someplace I can't reach..i just give her a few seco...

First and foremost, do NOT go Ice with Taar or any nature mage. Grasping Vine is the highest dmg output per attack there is...period. And it holds in place. Also, mages need quickened casting...it's the same as increasing damage output. Other than that, if u have a tank with max +defense skills the ...
