Title: Immortal Throne
Post by: Righ on July 02, 2007, 11:53:42 AM
Anybody play it? Somewhat intrigued by the sites that claim it is better than the original.

It would have to do some super-duper shit to bring me back.

I did, no it isn't.

Well, the shared bank is good, but other than that its basically more of the same. If you liked the game you will like the expansion. If you didn't, the expansion won't change your mind.

I picked it up and it's pretty good. Not really mindblowingly so though. The engine seems improved in terms of speed, but I think they may be because they removed that crap where every enemy drops a gigantic pile of broken armor and weapons.

Ah, I see. I think I already had that removed in the original game with a mod, so it didn't register for me.

And I had added a shared bank with a mod, so meh.

Melee probably still fucks dogs and blows goats, so meh from me too.

Actually, my Warrior/Rogue WTFPWNed in Melee.

Well, as long as I didn't take too many hits.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Tebonas on July 06, 2007, 01:20:49 AM
I played both the original game (Warfare/Defense) and the Expansion (Nature/Mind) as a melee.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Ironwood on July 06, 2007, 03:10:30 AM
There's a thread somewhere, but I played War/Def and got consistently owned by the last boss.

People advised me to 're-run some of the zones for items and levels' and I thought 'Fuck That'.

I admit, maybe me always being an Resistwhore in Titan Quest helped.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Yegolev on July 06, 2007, 09:33:48 AM
I, too, played a WAR/DEF but I never got as far as the last boss.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Tebonas on July 06, 2007, 11:00:45 AM
I never tried him after he got buffed, but before that I remember using Collosus Form, Pulverize, Rally, and Battering him like mad. When he raised his arms for the Meteor Strike or whatever I ran around him and went at him from behind. Template was about 90% Defense, 10% Warfare (For Ignore Pain and Dodge Attack).

And I used up numerous heal potions, obviously. Oh, yeah, and I sprinted through the last level, only stopping right before the boss to dispose of the straggler Cyclopses that didn't find their way home.

I just realized I still remember WAY too much about that game.

I didn't get very far in this game.  When I heard I would have to play the same game only harder three time, I completely lost interest and never looked at it again.  I'm probably too easily put off.  Doesn't matter, I would have cheated soon anyway.

Post by: Furiously on July 09, 2007, 04:03:47 PM
I picked up the expansion, it adds a additional mastery that is fairly fun to play and a shared bank and also a new way to buff yourself.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Yegolev on July 09, 2007, 04:19:46 PM
I don't need a new way to buff myself, thanks.  The tried-and-true method works great.

Yeah but I'm in a good rut.  If there's room for improvement, I don't want to hear about it.

Noticed this while looking for something else, but they have Titan Quest + Immortal Throne for $30 on Steam (http://steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=package&SubId=402&cc=US).

They have them for $20 separately (same as Amazon), but you'd need to buy it together anyway as "Titan Quest Immortal Throne requires the Steam version of Titan Quest to play" apparently.

Eh? I use immortal throne with the boxed version with no problem whatsoever.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne

Steam IT on top of boxed TQ or both boxed versions? Since TQ was released on Steam maybe two weeks ago at the earliest (http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/47992), I'm assuming the later.

Imortal Throne Steam page (http://steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=game&AppId=4550&cc=US): "Titan Quest Immortal Throne requires the Steam version of Titan Quest to play."

I think they're being specific to the Steam versions of both games. So, I for example couldn't install the Steam IT on top of a boxed version of the original (and possibly the other way around). On the other hand, the D2D version (http://www.direct2drive.com/3070/product/Buy-Titan-Quest:-Immortal-Throne-Download) says it's compatible with boxed and "digital" versions as long as the original is patched (1.30).

:headscratch:

Oh, IT Steam. No, I have both versions as boxed.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Morfiend on August 07, 2007, 05:40:42 PM
I picked this up yesterday.

I played through once as a War/Thunder, but the two didnt mesh well at all, and Hard mode creamed my character. Also, my old computer didnt handle it well. My new system is running it great, and so I started over as War/Dream. Its ok, but the main problem is that I dont have any one to play with. This game needs other people to make it interesting.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: schild on August 07, 2007, 06:05:46 PM
Hah, I just played through War/Dream. I have a total of 4 skills, all maxed out. I am a fucking melee god.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Morfiend on August 08, 2007, 11:55:58 AM
What skill trees did you use?

Duel Wield, Onslaught, Lucid Dream and the AE Stun Dream one?


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: schild on August 08, 2007, 12:09:18 PM
I don't know what Onslaught is.

Duel Wield is the only Warfare one.

For Dream I have the summon. I have the alternative regular attack. And uhmmm, the support skill for that attack.

That's it. Everything else went into the core tree for the class for the stat and HP bonuses.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Morfiend on August 08, 2007, 01:04:40 PM
Onslaught is the main Warfare attack. From what I was reading its much much better than the main Dream attack, since the dream attack only triggers every 4th hit, while onslaught builds up and then effects every attack.

Huh. Wonder if they stack.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Morfiend on August 08, 2007, 04:58:23 PM
Kind of Onslaught builds up to its max. I think it has a max of 8 ranks. So each time you hit, it adds a rank of the buff on you. Each time adding like 10% damage or something. Also, with some of the other onslaught skills, it also adds attack and movement speed. The stacks wear off very quickly when not attacking some thing. So you could build up 8 stacks, then do a few hits of the Dream attack, then go back to onslaught, but from everything I read, just using Maxed Onslaught is better damage. And then you can spend points some where else.

This is my planned build.

You should try swapping out Psionic Touch for Onslaught and see how it does. Also, I heard Phantom Strike is just awesome.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Tebonas on August 09, 2007, 02:08:44 AM
That was my build before I quit. At first I wanted to go the Pet route with this combo, but then I went for the "I have so many fucking hitpoints and damage absorption enemies die out of boredom before they can kill me" route. Itemisation was Resists and +vitality damage. With a fast weapon Psionic Touch is ungodly.
Ritualist (http://www.titancalc.com/TitanCalc.asp?mastery=Ritualist&master1=4&master2=9&sa=0&m1=24-0-0-12-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-0-0-0-6-0-0-0-0-0-0-0&m2=30-0-12-0-0-8-0-6-0-0-0-0-12-0-8-0-6-0-0-0-0-0)

Of course, Warfare/Dream would have been the more obvious choice, but this works surprisingly well and with a quick reskill you can go the pet route and let your pets do the work for a change of pace.

My regen is what makes things work well. I'm a tank - not like an MMOG tank so much as a bulldozing cuisinart with dual epic swords that can not only take damage but deal good damage.

Thats the beauty in Single-Player Games like Titan Quest. Too many broken builds to count and nobody cries for a nerf!  :-D

Reinstalling now.


Sigh.

I don't want to.

Stop talking about this game.

lol.  I laugh because I know the feeling.


Title: Re: Immortal Throne
Post by: Xerapis on August 19, 2007, 04:48:28 PM
Yep.  Playing.

Had to steal Immortal Throne though, so no multiplayer I'm guessing :(

~sigh~

I really need to find somewhere decent for game shopping here.  I absolutely refuse to buy every game through eBay.  D2D and fellows won't allow me to download because I'm in one of the piracy capitals of the universe.  Most publishers won't ship here. ~insert stabbing here~

On the other hand, since I'm single player only, I have no qualms about hunting down a trainer, giving myself access to all skills, and destroying whole screens of enemies just trying out the different abilities.

MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Where are you? If you can verify that you won't screw me for cash, I could send you games. I don't mind helping people out.


Call me a sucker :)

Stupid Titan Quest.  I tried a storm person but I am not sure I "got it", so rolled a bow user.  More fun than it should be.  Might try that dream thingy as secondary.
