Switch Characters

Upon meeting an unreliable or vague NPC, try to switch character. Once you change character, the conversation starts all over again. Since each character has a different interaction.

This can be useful as your character’s race can prove important depending on which character you are having conversation with. If the player in wrong race, then the complete quests will halt and even not start.

Gifts to Merchant

That may sound weird at the moment. But here is what happens. When you find a merchant that you like and would like to do a lot of business in the future, giving gifts to him can be profitable in the long run. As you gift the mechart something valuable, without balancing out the gold, you create an option to earn more later. When later you come and sell items, you get a higher value for the items. You can even buy the items at very less value when  the merchants’ stock refills.

Take the Pet Pal Talent

Skills and Abilities

Hydrosophist ability is awesome but so is Regeneration. It will serve as your survivor in the big part of the game and is your basic healing spell. As there is lot of damage in the game, it is important to heal quickly to get to back into the game and move ahead. Regeneration can help you in removing flames. It has long cooldown in combat. So if there are two characters with access to it, things will get easier.
