    Title: Dungeon Siege 3 FAQ/Walkthrough (PC version) by Andrew Her
    Date: 06/25/2011
    Version: 1.0
    Current Status: In Progress for completion
    Contact: the0nekassyni@hotmail.com
    -Initial release (took a while to release cause it's my first FAQ
    and using tab delayed the release).
    -Fixed FAQ formatting
    -Expanded on each Menu option
    -Expanded Abilities/Proficiencies/Talents
    Personal Comments
    -This should answer most of your questions regarding gameplay and mechanics
    and allow you to, hopefully, comfortably play the game using the keyboard
    and mouse. Updates to FAQ forthcoming still.
    -Almost done with game mechanics and gameplay. Walkthrough for each character
     will begin once this portion is completed.
    -Completed most updates on 07/02/2011 but did not have time to release until
     today. More formatting changes to come as the Abilites/Proficiency/Talent
     section looks too messy for my taste.

    Lucas Montbarron (Warrior)
       Lucas Montbarron is the son of the former Grand Master of the Legion. He
       is the last of a anoble and respected line. Raised in a series of 
       safehouses by families loyal to his father's memory, Lucas will not rest 
       until the Legion is rebuilt, and his family's honor is restored.
       Lucas is a skilled swordsman, and a master of two combat stances. He can
       fight sword and shield, which allows him to attack quickly, deal heavy
       damage, and interrupt and stun single targets. When outnumbered, he wields
       a massive two-handd sword. While slower, to swing and less practical for 
       one-on-one combat, he can use it to strike multiple foes and knock them
       back, making it an ideal weapon for crowd control.
       1st Stance - Close combat with 2-hand sword; AOE attacks
       2nd Stance - sword and shield for short/long range attacks
    Anjali (Warrior/Elemental)
       Anjali is an archon - a legend, come to life. In the old stories, archons
       were spirits of fire, who served the long-lost creator gods. But Anjali
       was raised by friends of the Legion, and she does not know how she came to
       this world, or what happened to the others of her kind.
       Anjali can shift freely between her human form and an incarnation of 
       elemental fire. In human form, she fights with a spear or a spear,
       allowing her to fend off multiple attackers while leaping in and out of 
       the fray. In her fiery incarnation, she can hurl bolts of flame at ranged
       targets, flood areas with heat and fire, or inflict searing wounds that 
       injure her foes over time.
       1st Stance - Close combat with spear weapon
       2nd Stance - Elemental (fire) form
    Reinhart Manx (Magic)
       Reinhart Manx is descended from a long line of Legion mages. he has spent
       most of his life at the Collegium, in the city of Stonebridge, immersed in
       the study and practice of magic. Reinhart is known for his onconventional
       thinking and innovative magical techniques.
       A scholar of arcane magic, Reinhart warps the forces of creation and
       destruction to his will. His Entropic magic can blast a wide area with
       life-extinguishing force, though it leaves him open to attack. It is
       perfect for destroying crowds of enemies, as long as he keeps them at a
       distance. His Dynamic magic is channeled through an arcane gauntlet and
       capacitor. It creates deadly currents of energy with a mere motion of his
       hand, allowing Reinhart to quickly incapacitate a single target at close
       1st Stance - Close combat stance
       2nd Stance - Long range AOE combat stance
    Katarina (Gunslinger)
       Katarina is the illegitimate daughter of Hugh Montbarrown - the former
       Grand Master of the Legion - and a Lescanzi witch. her mother's people
       are nomands and wanderers, distrusted by many people in Ehb... but they
       are skilled in 	both warfare and magic, and Katarina has been trained in
       their ways.
       Katarina takes a thoroughly practical approach to conflict resolution:
       stay out of sword's reach, and settle your problems with firearms. With
       her rifle in hand, she can fell distant foes, and even the most resilient
       enemy can be brought down by her ensorcelled bullets and debilitating
       curses. When forced into close combat, Katarina uses sorcery and a pair
       of short-range side arms to repel attackers.
       1st Stance - Rifle; short/long range attack; high damage per attack
       2nd Stance - Dual guns; short range attack; lower damage, quicker attacks
    [02] Difficulty
       Casual Difficulty is intended for players who are new to Dungeon
       Siege III, or other Action RPGs - or those who just want to experience
       the story without too much fear of dying.
       Normal Difficulty is intended for players who are at least somewhat
       familiar with action games or RGs and want to the game to be
       challenging - but not brutal.
       Hardcore Difficulty is intended for skilled gamers who want a
       challenging game that pulls no punches. Warning: not recommended for
       the faint of heart, or those prone to throwing controllers.
    [03] Controls
    Right Mouse Button
       Hold down button to move your character freely around map. You can

       A and D keys to pan the camera around.
    Left Mouse Button
       Pressing the left mouse button initiates your attacks. Continue
       pressing to go through different attack animations. Note, however,

    ALT key
       Holding the Alt key allows you to move the camera freely with your
       mouse. This elimates the need to use the ASDE keys if you so choose.

       while using the buttons to navigate simultaneously can produce a
       headache :)

       corresponding skill to activate the empowered version of the skill.

    [5c] Abilities
    *You have access to 3 Abilities depending on your level. The first level is
     Recruit, the second is Legionnaire and the third is Master.
    *For each level you have access to one Ability for each stance (1st, 2nd and
     Defensive). Each Ability has a numeric number beside its icon 
     (1, 2, Defensive) which is almost useless as they do not really correspond to
     the Icon display in the game. This is because the game switches the 2-handed
     and dual-wield stances and I rather much prefer to refer to them in this
     fashion to make things easier to understand.

    [xx] Tips
    NOTE: Most of these tips are really only possible because of very poor game
          design in my opinion.
    1. Save/Reload at save locations to gain XP/loot. Be careful not to do
       this at an unsafe save location unless you intend to :)
    2. Try not to put yourself in a spot where you can be knocked back and get
       stuck. Avoid corners, edge or U-turn shape roads, between objects like
    3. Switch to Stagger and Knockback on fights with limited running room.
    4. Use Vampire stat on NPC and allow hate control before attacking. Very
       useful for Lucas as you can stack plenty on him.
    5. You can always backtrack and let the enemies return to their spawn
       locations. Chipped away on their retreat and repeat. I consider this a
       cheat myself.
    6. Time your attack intervals so you have the chance to avoid projectiles!
    7. Always try to fight with the enemy at one corner and your character on
       the opposite. This maximizes the distance between you and the enemy as
       well as allowing you to see more.
    8. Run and shoot is a cheap way to beat anything in this game.
    9. Depending on your character build, use the Focus and Power Orbs as much
       as possible. Characters like Katarina excel in killing fast with the
       use of both.
    [xx] Possible Bugs in Game
    1. Choosing NOT to destroy the "Heart of Nagog" will not allow completion
       of the quest "A Wayward Soul." After the choice is made, I have not
       found a way to be able to even hit the Heart. Quest remains open.
