Re: How to get Vampire's cape??(MM7)

Yeah, I've never seen a Super Vampire. Is the cape he drops proof that you've completed the dungeon for the Advisor quest? Because I think the way it works now is if you just enter the place you've completed the quest.

Re: Why are Cuisinarts called that?

http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Cuisinart_(MM2) Cuisinarts are incredibly strong, capable of dealing an average of about 2000 points or more of damage per round to their opponents. They also have the deadly frenzy ability which allows them to attack up to six party members at once with a similar...

Re: GrayFace MM7 Patch v2.0 [Sep 21, 2015]

I don't know. Xfing mentioned that bug on the previous page, and I don't see a fix for it in patch 2.0. This is just speculation, but it's possible that it just doesn't show the reduced armor class on the enemy's stats (with Identify Monster), though I don't know how Xfing came to the conclusion tha...

Re: GrayFace MM7 Patch v2.0 [Sep 21, 2015]

- GM Axe effect of halving enemy's AC - I didn't even know enemies had AC values at all. Can anyone confirm if they do or not? If not, perhaps the devs just intended for GM Axe to apply an effect of applying damage from all weapons/spells by 150%, giving the illusion that enemy AC was decreased. I ...

Re: Need help with transition texts for GrayFace MM7 Patch.

'Not sure what the plural of medusa in mythology is. Medusas? Medusae? Either way, I hope both these transition texts are satisfactory enough. Feel free to edit them as you will. It doesn't have a plural. Medusa was a name, not a species. She was one of the gorgons, but obviously that's something e...

Re: MM7 2 member party

Not sure about Armor. Less points spent on armor means more spent on bow skill - which may stunlock enemies so your armor class doesn't matter. On the other hand, that GM bonus on Chain may save your hide. Hmm. I would just GM chain for the heck of it, but that's me. I could see experting leather be...

Re: MM7 2 member party

No other way to increase bow damage.. But it's speed will make up for that :) Is using Spear in two hands better as descritption says something about it being more efficient when using in both hands? The damage is comparable, but with spear + dagger you have an extra enchantment to use. any suggesti...

Re: MM7 2 member party

Yeah, Armsmaster is only for melee. It doesn't help bows Melee may not be nescesary with Invisibility, but it won't cost many points to at least expert some skills. Dagger + Dagger early on, then switch to Spear + Dagger later if you can get close to the recovery time cap (with Haste). Hmm, multiloo...

I don't have time for a long reply right now, but since no one responded yet.. Yes, bow skill is amazing with Archers, put your extra points in that. If you get anywhere close to the recovery time cap you will be an absolute beast. Think blasters but two projectiles at once and more damage. Keep an ...

Re: MM6 vs. MM7 vs. MM8: My review (May Contain Spoilers)

As for annoyingly long and boring dungeons, the Barrow Downs annoy me more than anything in MM6. I think it's because it's also a multi-level maze. It might not take as long to get through as say Castle Darkmoor, but while you're going through it you have no idea if you're making any progress, and i...

They do look like pictures, but one of them is a Xena lookalike. Even her outfit is the same. It makes me wonder if perhaps they are CG after all.

Re: There is a cap on the Eeofol wishing well

Interesting to know there's a cap on the well, though I agree I would prefer if the cap was smaller. - A fully-promoted Thief will still have more hit points than a fully-promoted Paladin at the same level, endurance level and Body Building level, even though the Thief will be an Expert, and the Pal...

Re: mm7) Plate vs dodging vs unarmed GM effect

The extra resistances from Leather Armor might be good enough to make it somewhat even, but the Monk still has to spend more skill points and doesn't get all the bonuses until he has his skills GM'ed.

Did you start the game once yet? I believe the ini is written when the game is run for the first time.
