Sacred series

Postby ThunderTitan » Mar 9 2008, 16:17

Oh yeah... Ascaron is working on Sacred 2... unfortunatly it looks like only the Seraphim is coming back.

But the interesting thing is the Light/Shadow paths you character can take...

thats the only game I could play instead of re-playing Diablo2, when I wanted hack&slash-type gameplay.

The persistent world map is the coolest feature... but boy could it have used a whole lot more portals... and teh Horses should have been faster... i mean the fastest horse i found at lvl 30 was barely a bit faster then the max speed you character can reach...

Another great thing was how your main stats grew by themselves but you could still customize them by 1 point every level. It made balancing characters much easier.

Couldn't agree with you more. Horses are nearly useless. They have like 25% more speed or so, and in some cases it just slows you down. Like then riding on a horse, slapping around orc's or whatever, you gain loot, you have to get of your horse, takes 2 seconds, then grab loot and the back on the horse agian. Also, fighting on a horse is a pain up the butt, when you are OF your horse you kill WAY better...

Install latest patch, and press A while on horseback... :D

To make horses more useful, buy them a saddle with + X Speed... and only buy them based on their speed.

They're not useless coz you'd go nuts on foot covering all that terrain, but i see no reason why they couldn't be faster as to make the boring run around pass quicker.

And the Battle Mage is just as effective on horse or off horse... :devil:

Didn't play with a Battle Mage yet. So i did NOT know that. Does the patch also apply on the Sacred Gold edition...

Not only that but it also makes it so you don't need a CD in the drive... 2.28 i believe.

And if you play BM i recommend Ring of Ice (the slow down is a big plus), with people on the tubes saying Fire Spiral is best coz it has better dmg (slow down seems better to me).

Well, in the diablo games i also have ice magic stuff, and itemsn with 10/15% chance of a lvl 3 frost nove. Slowdown of a whole groud is (in your words) teh best!!!

Recently got Sacred and Sacred: Underworld. Actually, to me, it doesn't feel like a Diablo 2 clone, which is a good thing. The graphics are very well drawn, especially the character models and the indoor environments! I'm loving those details and everything!

I'll probably have to play less Titan Quest, and more Sacred.

I'm looking forward to Sacred 2 and enjoyed Sacred. It has a lot more quests than Diablo. Everybody it seems calls this type of game a Diablo clone.

I liked playing a dwaf granadier but the granades sometimes made my machine crash. I haven't played it with my newest machine. I'll have to give it a whirl to see if I stll have that problem.

Sacred was a nice game, but it was the most buggy game I ever played, especially in Multiplayer :disagree:

And this is after the last patch! Look at the bug fixes in the patches and imagine how it was WITHOUT them.
No matter how powerful one becomes, there is always someone stronger. That's why I'm in a constant pursuit of power, so I can be prepared when an enemy tries to take advantage of me.

I don't remember many bugs after the patches but it has been a while since I have played. I only played single player though.
