Re: What's athletics useful for?

Athletics trades skill points for stat boosts. As a general rule, this is not a good trade. While you can beat the game with all sorts of builds (including really bad ones), Athletics is a poor choice. There is plenty of food to go around and a couple places where you can get more any time you want,...

Your image is not displaying. I don't know if it's because it's in spoiler tags, or what.

Re: Enough daggers for 2 dagger rogues?

It's better not to double up on a single weapon type. While there are enough daggers by the end of the game to have plenty to go around, the best weapons don't have duplicates. I'd also suggest using an Unarmed Combat rogue rather than a second dagger user.

You write like Captain Kirk talks. That is not a good thing.

Re: whats with The Dismantler

I tried it, and decided to stick with the Sword of Nex. It's just a better weapon due to the accuracy bonus and better attack speed.

If an enemy dying in the poison cloud didn't give experience, it wouldn't give any to anyone, not just your Mage.

Re: Unarmed Rogue or Unarmed fighter?

A Dex-focused unarmed fighter can wear the Lurker set and survive pretty much anything. Putting armor on him instead doesn't really make him harder to kill; it might make him easier to kill due to the foregone evasion bonuses from the Lurker set. High evasion is decent, but really high evasion makes...

That's what I would guess.

I'm pretty sure it does instant kills on a backstab.

Re: Unarmed Rogue or Unarmed fighter?

I don't think anyone is recommending ALL skill points in unarmed. I am. Right now. Put all points in unarmed and don't worry about anything else. The evasion bonuses will make up for it. Seconding this. An all-in approach to Unarmed Combat makes you very difficult to kill, and your damage output is...
