I've used the gold glitch. It came pretty handy for getting Bodhan's axe. Reminds me of the item dupe n Oblivion. Makes you wonder if it's really a glitch or its there on purpose because most of these WRPGs always have such a glitch or maybe its just Oblivion and DA:O
Best armor for arcane warrior is Wade's superior dragon medium armor. Best armor for non-arcane armor for defense is reaper's, best for offense is the armor right below reaper's at the same merchant, the one that offer +spell power and + mana regen. For blood mage, I prefer the the robe you find in the mage circle off a blood mage, the one with + hp regen and + armor.
Reality is defined by your imagination, the catch is to convince yourself what is and what is not.
