Heard rumours casters in AER are A DEAD LOSS...


they just don't know how to play casters.. they are stuck to old guides spoonfed to them from TQIT and are too unimaginative to think new builds/playstyles for themselves

this version of new players (with their thinking) cannot succeed the efforts put in by the old guards

btw, did you get your TQvault to work?

Probably should have started with my normal Conjurer, but I wasn't enjoying that much last time I played it. 

Well, I tended to be mostly TQAE and less GD, but since the expansion was released to the playtesters it's been all GD since beginning of July.  I did manage a couple of TQAE days when there was a testing bug which meant it wasn't worth trying to play, but otherwise GD full on.  I got the Ragnarok expansion a few days after was released since GOG got it later than Steam and I've managed to take my overlevelled Guardian from Act 3 Epic back into Normal to try it out and also started a Runemaster mastery toon, but haven't really been into the game proper for some weeks now.  I don't have any toons close to Act 5 at the moment so no idea how casters may fair there.

It means you're using stuff from your Vault collection - and/or if you have TQDefiler for the IT version of the game if you're using things like increased drops from chests, increased unique chance from chests, being able to socket unique items with relics/charms, etc.  In  other words, not self-found items only.

Yeap...its a co-op now ... she's only six yet she got the hang of it really quickly...i wish she were so quick about picking up english and spanish...anyway...it's gonna be now the warrior since the caster is too fragile and i don't want to risk accidental death so later on i will post an update on my...well... on OUR...warrior...

and no...I cannot create another toon just for her... >:( i explained it to her already that Jacek (OUR warrior) is a contest toon so she is hellbent on playing THAT one not some other toon...

I used to run all yellow conqueror in a zero death challenge...but got him only to act 1 epic.... forgot how strong and cool typical warriors are...there were other possible combos...i liked draem and spirit best but with a little -recharge and permanant QR I belive we will go for a Conquerer...just to be on the safe side...

and yes...TQVault is u and running...on 2nd machine where TQIT is installed  8)

I couldnt get it to work with AE  :(

This warrior is real fun...cannot wait to get him to Epic...rumour has it expansion on Normal is really hard...

Now, we have maxed warfare mastery with 1 point in Onslaught tree...1 point in BS tree and 1 point in weapon training. Maybe second mastery tonight...

Jacko try these:

http://titanquest.4fansites.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12241

https://github.com/NorthFury/TQVaultAE/releases

I installed the first one yesterday and it does recognise the Ragnarok items.  Don't know anything about the second except it was posted over on the GD forum Ragnarok thread.

And don't forget to provide me with Jacek's details so I can add it to the leaderboard.  :)

Ah I just assumed that TQ Vault was not allowed for the challenge. I have tons of gear in my vault. Especially considering I just successfully transferred my TQ Vault and characters (pre steam) from my old laptop to my desktop. Really helped flush out my vault. Was nice to see all my old gear and toons again. May give this challenge a go in the near future!

Okay sauruz, I'll add her to the leaderboard.

How are you posting your screenshots?  If using Imgur you can choose their size before you upload them there.  Under Images where it says Auto Resize - None you can choose several different sizes.  I use the 640x480 message boards and forums one, but 800x600 might be fine too.  Choose the size and then upload the images.

Code: [Select]
[img width=950] link [/img]This is if image is bigger than 950 width, so I reduced image which sauruz posted from 1366x768 to 950x??? where ??? is automatically reduced and proportional. In other case if image is vertical, another size can be used. Use Preview button to see how does it looks when you enter dimension, you can add both like width=950 and height=xxx , but in that way image may lost quality.
