Re: What's the purpose of sabres?

It's probably just because in the real world swords were the most common weapon. Same reason there are so many spear types.

There are no hidden stats to them. All swords have the same recovery time (as far as I'm aware).

Re: GrayFace MM6 Patch v2.0 [Sep 21, 2015]

Even though the last update was in September and I'm way late, I still feel obligated to say it's awesome you're still patching this game Grayface. I just found another little bug in MM6 (but it might be in the other games too, haven't tested): apparently the Scholar NPC does not actually give an ex...

Re: MM 6 & 7: Does perception help?

I just ran through the Sewer with a level 1 party (was hoping to find some gold to buy a spellbook to test something) and apparently you don't need Perception at all to find the sewer key. Just click on any grate; you'll find the key in the first one you click. Clicking more times gives you random l...

Re: What's the purpose of sabres?

I guess what you're asking isn't "why are there so many different types of swords?", but more: "why is there a sword weaker than the starting sword?". Well, you could find one and learn the skill at a guild. Plus it makes crappy loot more varied.

Re: Tolberti and solo druid

^ I seem to remember that Tolberti can shoot through the pillars in his room.. Not sure though, and it could just be a bug in earlier versions only.

Re: Tolberti and solo druid

GM Mace can paralyze him iirc. I agree with Baronus, you'll have to savescum to defeat Tolberti. I had to do the same thing when I solo'd a ranger and didn't want to spend 30 points on the stealing skill. Yeah... i dont even have the stealing option lol! Well, you don't get the blaster when you ste...

Re: MM 6 & 7: Does perception help?

I know this an old thread, but I didn't see this mentioned yet: in MM6, the Perception skill is also required to pick up crystals, like the ones you can find in Snergle's Ironfist dungeon. Some crystals will say "useless crystal" when clicked on. These aren't lootable, and really are usele...

Re: A Few Newb M&M 6 Questions

Luck is no better or worse than any of the other stats. What it primarily does is protect you from conditions caused by enemies (ex. poison, disease, instant death, etc), so it is more useful than it may at first appear but like all the stats it scales badly at higher levels. As for Learning, like t...

Re: MM6 NPCs for SSSS

For the NPCs, Mystic/Spellmaster is of course ideal for this party. But aside from that, I think the Duper is the best NPC in the game. You need master merchant at skill 16 to trade at value anywhere you want. The duper gives you 8 extra points in merchant so you would only need to master the skill ...

Re: [MM6]What exactly did the guy say??

By the way, the guy in the Buccaneer's Lair (New Sorpigal, opens at night) sounds a lot like Jon st. John - the voice actor for Duke Nukem. Except he's not credited for the role anywhere.

Re: Strange numerals in spell table

The question remains what the last two numbers are for.. They don't appear to be always hit/depends on attack, spell duration, range, number of projectiles, or area of effect.

By the way, it would be cool if someone could tell me how to access these to look at them for myself. :)

Re: How exactly does Disarm Trap skill work? (MM6)

Each map has a Trap Value that represents how difficult it is to disarm all of traps on that map. To disarm a trap, a character must have a Disarm Trap power higher than the current's map Trap Value. That's what I always thought, but it appears not to be the case. I reloaded to an earlier save to t...

How exactly does Disarm Trap skill work? (MM6)

I always thought that it was just a check to see if your level was high enough, but I've been finding that sometimes I can open a chest and other times (with the same level) it explodes. It does seem to be the case that having a certain level makes it so that the trap never explodes, but it seems th...
