Re: Which puzzle made you Facepalm? :D

Shooting the fire ball to access the portion of level 6 that has the Sword of Nex and the entrance to Fighter's Challenge eluded me for quite some time. And the damned thing was that I tried shooting a poison ball at it early on and then discarded spells for a long time. You should've seen my party...

Re: Analysis of Grimrock

When talking about the dodge skill you should mention the fact that for investing only 2 points you can get an evasion+5 bonus. For any offensive rogue there is no reason not to grab this bonus. 5 points of evasion is pretty significant and you won't be locked out of maxing out your main offensive ...

Re: Toorum on Hard

finding protection not as advantagious as evasion was for my monk, but its really hard to tell comparing a member of a 4 char party to a singleton. Def seems to be eating more food now that I have heavy armour on him. Is that my imagination? Hi. As Liam mentioned, I can definitely confirm that Evas...

Re: Analysis of Grimrock

After four full playthoroughs and fifth almost completed I agree with most things in your analysis but the one thing I really can't understand is an underrating of Missile Weapons and Throwing Weapons. These are very efficient weapons in terms of damage and survivability (dealing damage from distan...

Re: Analysis of Grimrock

@LiamKerrington, @DarkLord, @Greco: Thanks for the kind comments. Greco, You make a very interesting point about the synergy between the Invisibility and Frost Bolt spells and the backstab attacks. I wonder, though, that in cases where you are faced with swarms of Scavengers or Herders, whether havi...

Re: Analysis of Grimrock
