First of all if i posted this in a wrong place - i apologize. Please move this topic to appropriate section.
I'm pretty new to this game, have 100 hours clocked on Steam. I always play on normal difficulty adventure mode. i almost always play Cornac Berserker. And i always suck at some point. Please help me understand what i'm doing wrong.

1. How am i supposed to deal with magic? All my deaths except really stupid (like auto exploring Lake of Nur) were from magic. Be that thunder giants in Daikara, or mages at Charred Scar, or the last time i died almost instantly at Rak'Shor Pride. Some people say to stack resistances. I tried to stack (and prioritize above other stats) cold and lightning for Daikara once, got around 25% each and was wiped. Other people say that one should use corners. But damn mages can shoot you with their magics around the corner just fine. And those in Charred Scar just teleporting you or themselves around no matter how you're trying to hide. Should i really go Antimagic as a pure melee?

2. Does Arcane Disruptive forse on my equipment help with enemy magic users? Does it ruin their casting or something?

3. What prioritizing stats on my equipment should be? Should it be Armor>core stats(str, con, dex etc)>P.Power (or S.Power for spellcaster build)>resistances or maybe it should be HP>Armor>core stats?.. This part is very confusing.

4. What is better: purple, orange or unique gear? In general i mean. Also does tier of the item matter? I mean i found unique tier 1 Mighty Belt with HP+40, seems very good for berserker, should i keep it till the end? In other words: can it happen that you complete the game with tier 1-2 equipment just because of its good stats or you supposed to change to higher tier?

Also i have some general questions

5. When i hover over a core stat(str, con, dex etc) there is a tooltip "stat gives" but it almost always shows 0.0. I read that it is a bug but will it be fixed?

6. Talents and the balance seems changing bit by bit from update to update. Will there be some changes in 1.7.0? Talents changes? Armor rework maybe? I'm asking because

7. Some faqs seem a little outdated. For example one Berserker guide advices to get the Ogre and his ability to wield both two hander and a shield but i read talent description and it seems it was nerfed. Now i'm noob and may not understand its viability. So. How the guides actually relevant to 1.6.7 and to upcoming 1.7.0?

Last i post some screens of my wiped berserker at Rak'Shor Pride. Why, why he was killed so easily? I had such a cool equip and armor.. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but i don't know how to upload the dump and this dump actually wasn't uploaded to the server after lvl 37 due some connection issues it seems.
Finally i apologize for my bad english.
This game is wonderful i really want to understand it.

1) Not only for magic users but : don't fight multiple enemies at once. If an enemy can shoot around a corner (not common) just go a little further past the corner. They'll have to come to you and then you can deal with them. You can also dig to make the perfect terrain. Stacking resistance is meh, only do it if you're not giving up much in other things. And 25% in Daikara is definitely not "stacked", just one T1 green ring give 20+% ! You can go antimagic, there are pros and cons.

2) it does not

3) as a rule of thumb HP > Armor >>> rest. Rest would depend on what class you're playing, though everyone loves crit chance and crit mult, and their main power to apply status.

4) it will depend a lot but yellow/orange/pink >> purple > blue/green. Tier matter for lowest/highest values stuff can reach, but you compare the stats items give, not their tier. If a T1 has better stat than a T3 then use the T1, having a higher tier item does nothing.

5) it's not a bug. next time you level up, put a point in the stat and look at the numbers. it shows how much what you are currently investing gives. once you have validate the increase, it doesn't show anything.

6) yes, the game changes with every update, that's the reason there are updates :p Some class will see changes in 1.7, but there won't be any major change like 1.6 saw.

7) user made content is dependent on user to be updated. most people do not update (me the first). Look which version the guides say they're for, the older they are the more likely there are some inconsistencies with current patch.


i looked up your char in the vault : https://te4.org/characters/181584/tome/ ... 807a317fec
it's not updated to your last couple deaths apparently, but it gives a bit more info.

Talking equipment : that's a lot of pieces not doing much. now, this is normal and i'm out of touch with the loot you get but... your belt, tool, boots do basically nothing for exemple. A good thing is, you seem to prioritise armor though, good !
You have 2 great runes in your inventory : mirror image, a rune that just about everyone want to inscribe ASAP. It creates clones that taunt (irresistible) which means for as long as they stay alive, you shouldn't get each by non AoE things. And rune of dissipation, which is used to remove magical sustains from enemies. For example, you died in necro pride ? well, removing the necro aura make the necromancer a lot easier ;)
You have NO status resistance. status are big killer, get some immunities.
Speaking of immunities, you should go to Angolwen and talk to the ring merchant and craft some rings with your gems. Easy stun resistance with quartz/bloodstone gems and possibility for a great ring.

Talking talents : if you're gonna play a cornac berserker, you should reaaaaally get a full tree from an escort and unlock it (chant, augmented mobility, scoundrel, ...). Actually, i see you saved some and took stats every time. A lot of the time, a talent will be better. For example there is 0 reason not to take disarm from a loremaster as a weapon class. Or lacerating strike from a thief if you're not taking the tree.
put at the very least 1 in adrenaline surge so you can use any talent you need to in a pinch. Zerk doesn't have stamina issue but 1 point just to be safe is a good idea especially considering how expensive Unstoppable is.
Which brings me to my next point. Unstoppable is a talent that reads "you literally cannot die for 3-7 turns". You decided to put exactly 0 points in it. This should be maxed ASAP. You have no talent more important than this one, again you CANNOT DIE WHILE IT'S ON.
You unlocked warcries and put just one point in it. Well that might be because you're level 34 but well. I'd advise not unlocking warcries anyway.
Combat veteran is a tree you should just go full 0 in. Every other talents will just do more.


There is probably more to be said, but i think the most important is covered ?
Oh, you are in prides, so you must have done the quest to go back west ? Then you should go talk to the merchant in Last Hope (assuming you saved him in the tunnels). He is North-East of the town and will craft (potentially) powerful gear for you.

Alright
Seems i still don't understand this game. After a couple of bad runs i managed to build really good character..Or so i thought. I used all my talents on the last bosses and barely scratched them. If this char
https://te4.org/characters/181584/tome/ ... 043641f65e
wasn't able to do it then i don't know what am i supposed to do.
But hey, thanks for advices, i really enjoyed building my last char^^

Edit: Did some quick research. I guess i failed because i forgot about mages' sustains. Again. Damn. But i thought that i'm almost OP.
