There I agree with Erpy, CHEATING never pays as you, frankly, never learn to really play. But while in Spielburg I played straight characters, a Fighter which I think is the easiest of the three available, then as a Thief which I gave up soon enough when I discovered that I have rob innocent and honouable people like the Sherif, and particularly old lady on the rocker, then as a Magic User the most difficult <hahaha> smile.gif! Then I tried a combination of the two...A Fighter cum Magic User which I found to be fun smile.gif!! Maybe Erpy will not approve it?

Actually, I don't condemn cheating when people have completed the games a couple of times the normal way already. Some people like to play through the game for the story/dialogues without doing any grinding and in those cases, cheating is understandable. I'm just saying that for me, it'd take away from the experience as I like the feeling of raising stats through one's own efforts, even though the significance of stats decreases as the series goes on.

I don't condemn hybrid-play either, though I think it's tedious beyond belief if you want to max all (or even most) stats due to the fact both the thief and mage take a long time to max out.

Well I DO NOT condone cheating in any form or at anytime, getting and following a walkthrough, yes, when you've stuggled through a game smile.gif!
I agree an hybrid game is more difficult when you want max your skills. Even in that I go in for maxing my skills as a Fighter, especially in Spielburg as it is so very difficult to beat the Braggart smile.gif!!

Yello!

 

New commenter here who's greatly enjoyed reading the forum topics since the beginning of the year. I recently started playing through all the old QFG's after 10 years for nostalgia (mainly), and remembered that QFG3 had a number of consistency problems (i.e. total points, skill practice). I've got the official hintbook and have scoured numerous sites onlines, but Sierra seems not to have thoroughly playtested this one. I still can't get to 500 points at game end (came close w/ 497 as an imported Paladin).

 

Anyway, being a compulsive WRT maxing out skills, I've been trying to find ways around the game's difficulties. Currently playing as a Thief, I was able to max out my Lockpicking skill in only one place: at night, right after breaking into Laibon's hut. Though it uses a lot of Stamina, I found that by clicking my Thief's Toolkit repeatedly on his chest, even when it's unlocked, increases the skill. With a couple of waterskins from the Pool of Peace to replenish Stamina, I was able to max out the skill in a very short time, and then sneak away after stealing the Drum of Magic.

 

Just a small contribution. I still cannot find any place in the game which allows the Climbing skill to be increased by repeated use, even in the Lost City. I'm assuming that's a lost cause.

 

Thanks again!
