Another way to get to the T'Rang transporter early on:

You may be lucky enough to run into some enemies as you approach the T'Rang Overmind and Assassin gaurding the way. That, is, before they become hostile (near Z'Ant, take a left to meet them). If you fight against the T'Rang they may be forever hostile. But if you slip by these guys while fighting centipedes and spiders, for example, no problem. It helps to throw a blind spell, as the enemies move out of the way. Otherwise they will block you and you can't win. You still can use the Mines or the Pulse Pick later on to get there, but not usually at lev 9 or 10.

once your enemies get very hard in spellcasting, silence is unlikely to work, so use element sheild and/or soul sheild to stay alive. having several spellcasters (even if they're hybrids) helps build resistances. hobbits, gnomes and dwarves can also build resistance.

in other words, defencive magic can sometimes be more useful than offencive.

eye for an eye can be one of them.

If you feel lucky enough to fight Marten, here's a tip so that your party isnt insane. after you get the destinae dominus, go to trade. this will allow you to enter your inventory so you can give somebody, with the helm of serenity, the DD. then slap the attack button and hope for the best. GOOD LUCK!

score a cool 1k exp in the graveyard by placing a holy water bottle on the dead spirit in the building. just go to inventory, click the H W and hit exit, then click on the spirit (you may need to get really close).

extra tip: there is a holy water where the trail to the graveyard meets the arnika-trynton road if u search.

HEY! WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE SENDING TIPS LATELY!?!?!?

Always make any gadgeteers or bards female as there are some female only stamina regeneration items. Once you've maximised their skill (engineering/music) then consider changing them to a fighter for extra stamina regeneration.

When assigning skills points upon levelling up, remember the following rule for mages: the realm skills (earth, water, air, fire, mental, divinity). are easier to boost up with practice than spellbook skills (divine, psionic, wizardry, alchemy). Here's an example - take the hidden passageway from the prison to the bank vault. Start casting knock-knock spells on the door at power 1. Do this about four times then quit out of the lockpicking attempt. Your earth skill will usually go up a point. Keep doing this and every so often your wizardry skill will increase as well.

Hence, when levelling up, put maximum skill points into your spellbook skill(s) as this will lead to your getting more powerful spells. For the realm skills you just need to practice a lot. This is especially important for the bishop at early levels. Pump every point into your spellbook skills, I usually go for divine, psionic and wizardry while practicing alchemy with spells.

When in combat, unless you are in a desparate situation or fighting for your life or out of mana, keep casting spells every round to practice your skills. Constantly casting a spell at power level one is a good way of practicing without wasting mana.

Quick tip for my first post here ...

Have a character that you unlocked the Iron Will skill with? Drinking enough Booze (the stronger the better) will raise your Iron Will skill. I got best results with Bonecrusher Brews.
