1. Introduction
===============

This is a great game! A must have for all RPG players. If you don't do RPG, you 
may want to try it anyway. It's graphics, sound and almost everything is all 
very well done.
Apparently, I don't have all the information on the equipment modifiers and the 
set items. If you have any of those that I missed, kindly send them to me. I'll 
give you credits for it.

Skill-2     : Combat Masteries
Skill-3     : Combat Skills

*Strategy: Skill up this guy a weapon of your choice (Combat Masteries), then 
train him up all the way to level 20. You would easily be a force not to be 
reckoned with by then... There is more, after completing your choice of weapon 
mastery, continue to increase your skills in Increased Stamina, Increased Speed, 
Iron Skin and Natural Resistance.

Paladin

Dexterity   : 20
Vitality    : 25
Energy      : 15
Stamina     : 89
Life        : 55
Mana        : 15
Skill-1     : Defensive Aura
Skill-2     : Offensive Aura
Skill-3     : Combat Skills

*Strategy: Skill up using Prayer (Defensive Aura) and keep to this. After that, 
when you received a book (Forgot the name) that forces you to learn a new skill, 
learn Might (Offensive Aura). Basically, you should use Might and switch back to 
Prayer whenever you are damaged. You should switch skills using the your 
function keys to change them easily. Works best if you increased both Prayer and 
Might to its maximum level. Remember that you have to increase your Energy so 
that you won't run out of Mana easily. Use Healing/Rejuvenation (Potion) when 
the monsters are dealing more damage than your Prayer can handle.

=========

Act 1
=====

        Sells Wands, Staves and Scepters
        Sells Scrolls and Tomes

Warriv: Basically does nothing until the end of Act 1.
        He is the guy who sends you to Lut Gholein (Act 2)

*You can't get Cain until you rescued him in Tristram.
*Can't hire from Kashya untill you kill Blood Raven in the Burial Grounds.


Quest 1: Den of Evil
====================
01. At the start of the game, talk to Warriv.
02. Next, talk to Akara. She'll give you the first quest, Den of Evil.
03. Exit the town and to the wilderness, you'll enter Blood Moor.
04. You may come across Flavie, but do not go pass her! The Den of Evil is 
within the boundaries of Blood Moor.
05. Enter the Den of Evil and kill anything that moves (excluding yourself).
06. There is a unique monster found in the Den of Evil.
07. When you killed a certain amount of monster, the quest book option would 
appear, showing the remaining number of monsters left.
08. Just kill everything and return to Akara for the reward, +1 Skill Point.

*Always kills the Shamans first, as they can revive their minions.

Quest 2: Sisters' Burial Ground
===============================
1. Talk to Kashya. She'll ask you to kill Blood Raven.
2. Explore the Cold Plains, found on the other side of the map blocked by 
Flavie.
3. There is a Fallen Camp in this map and it's filled with Fallens, Fallen-
Shamans and a unique Fallen Shaman, Bishibosh. Kill Bishibosh first, as it can 
revive the Shamans.
4. You'll get two exits and a cave on the Cold Plains. Explore the cave first. 
5. Proceed on to the Burial Grounds. Start off by walking round the exterior of 
the map, killing off all monsters you found on the way. Hopefully, this may be 
enough for you to gain another extra level. By the way, when you level up, all 
your Life and Mana replenishes to maximum.
5. Make your way to the center of the graveyard, where Blood Raven awaits your 
arrival.
6. Ignore all the other monsters. Attack Blood Raven first as she can slowly 
summon for more undeads.
7. After Blood Raven is killed, holy lightning would emit from her body killing 
off the remaining undeads. Non-undeads are not affected, you'll still have to 
deal with them personally.
8. Return to the Rogue Encampment and talk to Kashya. She'll give you a free 
Rogue Archer and you'll have the option to hire them from now onwards.
9. There are two new areas for you to explore (Crypt and Mausoleum). Both are 
single level dungeons, and contain a gold chest guarded by a unique monster.

*You can only have one mercenary at any time.
*Mercenary can gain experience for your characters.
*Maximum level for Rogue Archer is level 10.

Quest 3: The Search for Cain
============================
01. Talk with Akara. She'll ask you to find Cain who is in Tristram.
02. To reach Cain, you'll need to find the Cairn Stones and obtain a Scroll of 
Inifuss from the Tree of Inifuss.
03. The Cairn Stones are found in the Stony Field, but you can't do anything 
with it yet.
04. To get to the Dark Wood, you have to enter the Underground Passage. The 
Underground Passage consists of two levels, the way to the Dark Wood is on the 
first level, but the second level contains a gold chest guarded by a unique.
05. When you reached the Dark Wood, find the Tree of Inifuss. Search it to get 
the Scroll of Inifuss.
06. Return to Akara with the bark and she'll decipher the runes for you.
07. Head for the Cairn Stones (Stony Field) and touch the Cairn Stones according 
to the sequence.
08. A red portal taking you to Tristram would appear.
09. Upon entering Tristram, you should walk around the map, slowing killing off 
the monsters.
10. The monsters are quite easy, except for Griswold and a couple of uniques 
which are harder to kill.
11. Try to find Wirt's body. His body contains many treasures and when you 
collected the whole lot, you can even take along his leg with you!
12. Release Cain. If you walked around the map as I suggested, there might not 
be any monsters left in the Town Center when you are releasing Cain.
13. Return to the Rogue Encampment. Cain will now identify items for you, free!
14. Remember Wirt's leg? You can't sell it yet, but it has a high durability and 
also fast attack speed. Can try swinging it at the monsters for fun.
15. Actually, I have no idea what use the leg is for. If you do find out any 
future usage, please email me.

Quest 4: The Forgotten Tower
============================
01. First, you'll to find and read the Mouldy Tome, I found it in the Stony 
Field, but it can be anywhere given the randomness of the game.
02. The quest appears after you read the Mouldy Tome.
03. Get into the Forgotten Tower located within the Black Marsh and kill the 
Countess.
04. There is a cave found in the Black Marsh, which contains a gold chest. You 
may want to explore this cave before heading into the Forgotten Tower.
05. The Countess is found on the sixth level of the Forgotten Tower. It is fire 
enchanted so having equipment with Fire-Resist may be easier.
06. Open the chest that's found in the room the Countess is in for lots of money 
and some items.

Quest 5: Tools of the Trade
===========================
01. Talk with Charsi. She'll ask you to find the Horadric Malus from the 
Maonastery Barracks and return it to her.
02. Head towards the Tamoe Highland from the Black Marsh.
03. There is a Pit, which you can explore in the Tamoe Highland.
04. Enter the Monastery Gate.
05. From the Gate, you can access to the Outer Cloister.
06. And from the Outer Cloister, you can reach the Monastery Barracks.
07. The Horadric Malus is found within the Monastery Barracks and is guarded by 
a Smith (Unique Monster) which is really strong.
08. When you finally defeated the Smith, get the Horadric Malus and bring it 
back to Charsi.
09. She'll give you an option to imbue an item that is non-jewelry, non-
socketed, non-magical and non-throwing item into a magical one.
10. Better cross your fingers and pray for a good item, as the item given is 
completely random.

Quest 6: Sisters to the Slaughter
=================================
01. Once you completed the previous quest, talk to Cain.
02. He'll give you the final quest, and that's to kill Andariel.
03. First, enter the Jail level 1 through the Outer Cloister.
04. From the Jail level 3, you can go to the Inner Cloister.
05. Then, from the Inner Cloister you go to the Cathedral.
06. And finally, from the Inner Cloister, you can access your final destination, 
the Catacombs. (Finally, that's over with!)
07. Andariel lies within the fourth level of theCatacombs and she has a weakness 
to fire.
08. After killing Andariel, return to the Rogue Encampment and talk to Warriv. 
He'll bring you to the next town, Lut Gholein.

*Warriv would also be at Lut Gholein and can bring you back to the Rogue 
Encampment if neccessary.
*Cain would also join you, and identify items for free in Lut Gholein.
*Updates coming soon!
