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

Divinity 2 - Ego Draconis is a third person roleplaying game with action 
elements, lots of random generated loot like in Diablo 2, a base for 
yourself where you can upgrade your equipment and last but not least, 
the ability to transform into a dragon.

This all combined with the intriguing storyline, and the very strange humor
it sometimes displays makes it a good game.


And so the story starts...


You recently finished training on the Dragonslayer Academy and now you are 
ready to have the knowledge of the dragons imprented into your mind.
Unfortunately has this the side effect that you forget everything you 
learned so far, but hey, you at least get nice blue glowing eyes and you 
are now a Dragon slayer.
But then reports come in of a Dragon being sighted in a nearby village.
After some investigation you meet that Dragon.. and from there it goes 
even further down the drain and in the end you have to save the world.







=============================================================================
========================2. Character Generation==============================
=============================================================================

Character generation is rather easy.


The name: Its rather unimportant, and the default 'Slayer' is 
not my first choice to be honest.


You then select between a 'Male' character, or a 'Female' one.

	-Male-
You get three hairsets, with two colors each.
Then you can chose between five different faces, or rather beardstyles.
You then get to chose between 4 voicesets

	-Female-
You get to choose between five different hairstyles, and three 
different hair colors for those styles.
Not that this influences a lot, because most of the time you will be 
wearing a helmet that covers your hair.
After this you can chose one out of 4 different voicesets, which will 
only be used for combat cries at best, and mostly for deathcries.
To round it off you got 7 different faces, plus another 3 who are 
just the same as before but are now with a scar over the eye.



There are no classes at first, but once you have the Dragon memories 
imprinted you can chose between three teachers, to get some of your 
abilities back. However you can always learn whatever you want to make 
the character just how you like it.

=============================================================================
========================4. The Dragontower===================================
=============================================================================


Eventually you will receive your very own Dragon Tower, complete with an 
Alchemist, a smith, a skill trainer and a Necromancer.
Each of them can be upgraded twice for cheaper potions, better 
enchantments, better skills, or a better Minion.
It also comes with your own Bard, your own Dancer, three scavengers 
who will get you everything you want, with more or less success depending 
on their equipment, and your very own corpse trader.
You can send the scavengers out to find stuff for you, like jewels or 
herbs, that you then can use to create Potions or enchant equipment. 
However you need to equip them with gear so that they success is more 
guarenteed. They can't die however, but if they are hurt to badly they 
refuse to go out until you send them to the alchemist to let them be healed.


========================4a The Alchemist=====================================

How to: To upgrade the Alchemist just talk to him and he will give you a 
	quest, fulfill that and you can perfom the upgrade.

Level 1: The basic Alchemist. Nothing special about it.
Level 2: Now you can ask your alchemist to brew yourself Superior 
	 potions of Strength/Dexterity/Intelligence without having to pay 
	 ingredients for them.
Level 3: The Ingredient cost is reduced, all potions are much cheaper.

========================4b The Smith=========================================

Level 1: The basic Smith, nothing special about him.
Level 2: You have three choices:
		-Weapon
		-Armor
		-Trinkets
	 Depending on what you chose it will be cheaper to enchant these items.
Level 3: Same as level 2.

========================4c The skill Trainer=================================

Here you can pay to enhance your skill past the original limit of 5 points.


Level 1: You can raise your skill to 7
Level 2: You can raise your skill to 10
Level 3: You can raise your skill to 13

Note: I'm not to sure about these stats, but it does sound quite good.

========================4d The Necromancer===================================

Level 1: Your average Necromancer.
Level 2: Depending on your Necromancer has your creature increased Magical 
	 Resistance or Physical Resistance.
Level 3: The effects of Level 2 increase.

You can also buy corpse parts which you can use to assamble your very own 
necromantic minion and shape it to your liking.

========================4e The Necromantic Minion============================

THe necromantic Minion, by collecting body parts of your slain enemies, 
which is sort of misleading since they are not really collected from 
your slain enemies but you can find them rather on corpses, in chests, or
special enemies after killing them. 
You already have access to it far earlier than he Dragontower,
but the true potential comes out with the Tower and the specialized 
Necromancer you choose. 

That doesn't means its bad at first, in fact is it quite vital.

However the Corpse Part Trader that comes with the Tower makes 
creating your minion far more easier.

When making your minion you have four options to chose from.


			The Head
The head can either be purely cosmetic, or something you want, like a head 
of a goblin so the minion will at first throw fireballs at the enemy. 
Or a head that allos them to use devastating warrior abilities. Generally 
is the head useful for skills and save for that has no other use.

My choice: Fresh Disgusting Head.
 Class:	   Fighter
 Skills:   Charge Attack 9, Death Attack 9

			The Torso
The torso is mostly important for the Close Combat Resistance, 
Ranged Resistance and Magic resistance. Save for that no further use.

My Choice: Perfect Goblin Torso
 Features: +100% Melee Resistance
	   +100% Magic Resistance
	   +130% Ranged Resistance

			The Arms
THey not only govern the damage your creature causes with a hit, but also 
the additional HP it has. Some of the arms just give melee damage, others 
give purely health. So it is to your own choice to decide what you prefer 
and what is appropiate, a creature that will primarily attack with magic 
will most probably not need any melee damage.

My Choice: Seamlessly cut of arm pieces.
 Features: +100% Melee Damage
	   +100% Health

			The Legs
They govern the Strong Body, Enhanced Reflexes, and the Indominable will 
of your creature. Again are there some legs that are more specialized in 
one aspect, but so lack other aspects.

My Choice: Seamlessly cut of leg pieces.
 Features: +90% Strong Body
	   +90% Enhanced Reflexes
	   +90% Indominable Will


Also note that the Minion will always be the same level as you, and 
level with you and so increase in power. The body parts are only 
there to enhance his abilities.

			My Level 34 Minion:
Damage:			54-54+(27-27)
Melee Resistance:	66%
Ranged Resistance:	66%
Magic Resistance:	66%
Strong Body:		34%
Enhanced Reflexes:	34%
Indominable Will:	34%
HP:			2736

=============================================================================
==============================5.Tips=========================================
=============================================================================

At first using Mindread is quite expansive, some people need more than 
3000 Xp to read their mind. Often is it worth though because you can get 
Skillpoints from them this way. Or alternatively, quests, which in turn are 
worth XP too.

Later on its not this important anymore since many enemies are worth 
1000 XP, and so you easily get it in again.
But at the start is it quite heavy.
 
No matter what skills you opt to use, take Mana drain, especially when you
are a melee oriented warrior. That way you never run out of mana.

Summoning your Minion takes 50% if your maximum mana.

You can't have more than one summon (Ghost/Zombie/Demon) out at a time.

Charming your enemies works wonders, they have one less combatant and you 
have one more. The higher levels of it allow you to charm more enemies at 
the same time.

Equipment plays an important role, always aim to have the best gear 
avaible.

Since the items are generated randomly can you save and reload for maximum
efficiency in getting the item you want. It does however take time.

Always keep seperate saves, you may never know what lurks around the next 
tree.

The Dragon Skill 'Summon Ally' doesn't work as described. At the highest 
level (5) should you be able to summon 3 level 32 Wyverns, but you are
only to summon 1. Each further use of the ability will make the old Wyvern
explode.

Confused on how to reach the other platforms in the Dragontower?
Press 'U' and you get a choice between the different platforms.

If you press Q will you automatically transform into a dragon, if there is 
enough space.

Once you leave the first level, the dale, will you not be able to come back.
So do everything you can.

The Dragonvoice is not always correct, with the right tactics you can beat 
even stronger foes than you should. If they are alone that is.

===========================8. Frequently Asked Questions=====================
=============================================================================

Q: Help! I can't find that tree in the south in the quest 
   'You sow what you seed'

A: Its a bug to be honest. The map pointer should be further in the north, 
   near the island in the middle of the sea.

Q: What does that "15/18/..." mean you type in the skill effect section?

A: It shows the varios effects of it of the skills, the first one is the 
   first level, second level, third level, etc. As far as I could test it 
   with my character. So "15/18.../ seconds" would mean that it lasts 15 
   seconds on the first level, 18 on the second level, and more then on 
   the third.

Q: You typed Damage 54-54+(27-27) when describing your encromantic minion, 
   what does that mean?

A: Weapons, and damage, can also cause magical damage which is displayed 
   in extra blue numbers behind the normal physical damage. This only means 
   my minion causes 54 physical damage with each hit, and 27 magical.

Q: Will you write all the skill damages and effects up to maximum level?

A: Doubtful, considering you can train your skills up to level 13, and you 
   need Level 35 to be able to invest the 13th skillpoint into the skill 
   then. Not only that but it will be a lot of work to write it all down, 
   and if it should be changed in a future patch would it all be good for 
   nothing.

Q: I heard that there are Dragon abilities too? Why are they not in the 
   skill list.

A: There are overall 7 Dragon abilities and you get enough skillpoints 
   to max 4 of them, and boost the rest to reasonable levels with equipment. 
   I also didn't want to start a new game to find out what the first level 
   of those skills does and then wait until I get my first point to see the 
   second level of them, and so on.

Q: Where can I find X?

A: I don't know, this is not the reason for this FAQ. I just give a general 
   layout of the game and offer some tips, not an exact guide of where to 
   get what.

Q: I can't get past the Statues in Keara's Flying Fortress.

A: The trick is that they are all lying. Not that that helped me much to 
   begin with, I also had my problems with them. Anycase, here is the
   solution.

    The Loen statue is Devastation
    In the Plant room is the left one Waste , the right one is Chaos
    In the Lava room is the left one Havoc, the right one is Mayhem

=============================================================================
===========================9. Evaluation of the game=========================
=============================================================================

Graphics: The Graphics are quite nice and fluidly looking with a love for
	  detail. Sometimes they are off though. Chasms of a castle that has 
	  been subject to rain for decades and there are edges that look 
	  razor sharp and ready to impale someone if they should fall onto 
	  it? Not really.
	  The landscape is great though, and the sun glaring too.

Difficulty: Tricky that. Often are battles either to easy or to hard. Very 
	    rarely is there anything inbetween. Fortunately you can always 
	    go to another place and level there slowly, until you feel ready.

Gameplay: Turning into a dragon? Awesome!
	  Flying around as a dragon. Double awesome.
	  Not able to spit fire at ground enemies.
	  Not so awesome.
	  Ground anemies that become invisible when turning into a dragon?
	  Boring.
	  Having an undead pet that urinates everywhere, even in cutscenes?
	  The best of all.
	  Safe for that is the battle system quite stable, sometimes aiming 
	  is a bit tricky but you get the hang of it quickly.

Bugs:	  In the time I played it I barely encountered any groundbreaking 
	  bugs. Occasionally will random baskets and scenery items, 
	  which you can destroy, move around over the floor as if moved 
	  by a ghost hand. Once I had to end the game via the task manager
	  because the quest NPC who was supposed to open a door, got stuck 
	  behind me and couln't open it. The cutscene never ended because 
	  of that, but that was the only time I ever encountered something 
	  like this.
	  Another time allowed a bug me to proceed further ahead, without 
	  displaying any enemies nor buildings, which caused me to kill a 
	  boss. After leaving and returning were the buildings and enemies 
	  all of a sudden there. But after I destroyed some of the 
	  buildings were the effects they displyed still there, and 
	  unfortunatley that meant that the barrier ahead would not 
	  disapear. Sadly did reloading the game did not fix it. But 
	  fortunately I could still pass using a teleporter.
	  There is one massive gamebreaking bug at the end of the game 
	  though, after the end scene rolled and the credits played will 
	  the game simply freeze and lockup. Only via the task manager can
	  the game be shut down. Fortunately is that the only gamebreaking 
	  bug, however if there is a new game+ then its quite severe.

Overall:  It is a good game with lots of fun, interesting quests, 
	  interesting characters and lots of possibilities for your 
	  character to be developed. Not to forget that there are various 
	  things throghout the game that are very amusing, like a book 
	  called 'The universe, life itself, and simply everything' 
	  (Hitchikers guide through Galaxy), or a feracious devastating 
	  Killer Rabbit (Monthy Pythons - The holy Grail).
	  I am sure there are more eastereggs like these, that will 
	  make you laugh quite a lot.

	  Only problem is that eventually you killed every foe, explored 
	  every cave, and there is just nothing to do anymore. 
	  Respawning enemies would've been fun.

	  Another thing, the ending... I won't spoil anything, but it 
	  is quite a surprising ending.

	  My guess is that there will be an expansion, or perhaps a 
	  third part of the series. But who knows.

So here is my second FAQ. Sure been some time since I last wrote one. In 
either case, I did my best and might or might not update it. Depending on 
the feedback, demand, and what else.

So long, dark_scourge
