Henchman question + Inventory

Postby Stilgar » Sat Jun 29, 2002 8:18 am

I have 1question. and one statement i like to hear some opinions about.

First. when i have a henchman how is the experience handled, do whe share experience like in baldur's gate? or do I get all the experience and dous he level up with me (i believe it's this way) or do I mius experience for his kills?

Second, what do you think of the new Diablo like inventory?
Not the 1item takes up 1slot but the "longword is 6slots and a potion one"-way???
I liked the old system better, much better, i think the inventory looks messy, even compared to diablo.

That's all folks!

The experience is not shared you get it all to yourself, although as I have seen in my game and heard from other people you do get less experience for playing some easier classes, for example a druid will get less XP then a wizard.

As for the inventory, well I think it's more realistic, but I do agree that it is very messy, I never played diablo so I don't know the inventory interface there, but I had a short experience with Dungeon Siege and it has a similar inventory with a button that reorganizes the inventory to be neater, while I think DS stinks as a rpg, I did like the inventory that they had more then I like NWN, but this is a minor detail that I can certainly live with.

I liked the BG inventory better too.
This is just a bit chaotic. But it's really not a big deal.

Pick up an item in inventory and while holding the item, click on the inventory page where you want to put it... then drop it on that page. I spent hours making my inventory look neat.

I don't have any problem with the inventory - my character now has seven magic bags of various qualities and 2 bags of holding (should've gotten a third one but I didn't) Anyway I organize stuff with the bags - I have 2 magic bags for potions, 2 for various quest items, keys, and ingredients, and then some more and the bags of holding for loot like weapons and armor. I have one row of quickkeys for armor, weapons, ammo and combat feats like rapid shot or power attack, one row for spells, and one row for potions. Everything is neat and organized, I can find things quickly, and I don't have to go back to base often at all to sell of loot. I love it. I will carry over my quickkey arrangement to multiplayer and be able to play in real time effectively.
May you walk on warrrrm sannd....
