If you've won the game before, an adventurer can unlock stone warden by level 5.
I haven't.. hence my longer route with Archmage..
I think someone mentionned that rune/infusion count toward the number of points required, maybe that's why you needed only 9?
Possible.. he does have a Wild and a Regen infusion on him.. maybe one or both counted for the Wild-gift..
And yes, stone warden used to be a donator perk before possessor existed.
Ah, hence the somewhat confusing thread I read in the Steam forum.. Thanks Cathbald.
Growing old is mandatory..
Growing up, is completely optional..
