Couple MM8 Questions

Postby Double_Trouble » Apr 7 2012, 0:28

Hi, I was wondering if in MM8 the always run also increases recovery time like in MM7? And also if regeneration skill stacks with regeneration spell? Thanks in advance :)

Yes to both.

Regeration skill, regeneration spell, and regeneration items all stack together.

BTW: MM7 's regen spell is so ridiculously overpowered that I stopped using it. MM8's is much more balanced.

As far as I remember, it does. It's not worth investing points in though, since it's practically useless later on. (And the fact that it DOESN'T SCALE AT ALL doesn't help.)

I also have a question, How do I get to Regna? I can't seem to find transportation there.

Dagger Wound island's pirate outpost is your way to Regna, but IIRc you cannot go there in early game/ before a quest send you there.

Another question, what is the purpose of the banks? I didn't seem like they payed any interest to me after I put 40k there.

Gold put to bank does not disappear when your party is dead, as gold on hands does. Actually it has no sense if you don't die, reload after death face, or simply treat this death as a total failure, and start over.

Money in a bank cannot be stolen. I seem to recall that I had money stolen at a shop or by an NPC many years back.

I am not sure, but I would not be surprised if you lost money if you went to prison. I have not had that in a very long time, so can't recall.

You have to go to a Light shop. IIRC the desert has one, so does Celeste and Murwoods.

In MM7 thieves rob your bank, if you don't please their master, Niles Stantley. Besides that, I can't remember anyone who steals your money.

Murmurwoods. There's no Celeste in MM8.

P.S. Fix marked.

I was not sure which game was being addressed. I should have checked the title of the thread lol.

Never heard of a bank getting rob though in MM. The MM6 manual says the banks are safe.

Far safer than a dragon hoard guarded by a legion of ancient-mega-dragons I guess. U'r money stayed there no matter what (unless u'r game crashed for some reasons :-D )

Again, if you have a small agreement with Mr Malwick, you will be quested to do something for Niles Stantley at certain time. If you won't, one of consequences is zeroing bank account. As I rarely put something to the bank, the only money they got is awards of the Queen and the King.

The Arena, or you can summon Light Elementals and then kill them.

Money should never be a problem in MM8 once you get town portal and around 10000 gold. Do the trading triangles (yes I know it is tedious, but it is actually pretty fast). There are 3 total, but the mid level one requires going to a city without a town portal and is only unlocked fairly late in the game. Also, when I say buy, I mean buy enough to fill the packs of all 5 party members.

Early game: Tobersk Fruit
1) Dagger Wound (buy fruit)
2) Ravenshore (sell fruit and buy pulp)
3) Alvar (sell pulp and buy brandy)
4) Dagger Wound (sell brandy)
5) Repeat as necessary.

Mid/Late game: Mysterious Triangle (should have at least 50k before starting this. Doing a few rounds easily cranks the money out).
1) Ravenshore (buy forged credit vouchers)
2) Ravage Roaming (sell vouchers, buy wyvern horn)
3) Shadowspire (sell wyvern horn, buy silver dust)
4) Ravenshore (sell silver dust)
5) Repeat as necessary.

That one is the best, since it can be done with Town Portal too. Once you've rescued Balthazar lair, of course.

How often are store inventories refreshed? They havn't sold town portal in ages
