    Well, I am not completely satisfied with the outcome of this character. My great Armour helped me a lot in the first two Acts, expecially against King Louis (I still have to find a Mage/Rogue able to bring down that overgrown chimp without an outrageous amount of luck), but in the third Act there are so many enemies dealing damages at the end of every turn, that I should have increased Brawn, instead. I also spent time to find an item with Second Skin but, ironically, the enemy I had to kill for it was the last with Piercing I met (bye Gorgis).
    I only won the fight with Lorcan thanks to Kick Start and that means that my character was not very well balanced.

    This was my first character (after a Warrior prematurely aborted at the very Beginning of Act2). What can I say? Shadowstalkers rule! Shadow Speed is awesome because it both increases the average result of a die and prevents negative effects activated by rolling "1" (did anyone say "Flay"?).
    Seriously, I never met a real challenge, since I started Act3.

    I was literally swimming in gold, thanks to Mydas Touch. I picked this career at the very beginning of Act2 and never had a reason to regret it, even though I seldom use Good Taste. It is a pity that Act3 contains only a piece of feet equipment for Mages, as I still had those Rune Forged Greaves bought back at Pisa's Rest.

    Thanks for sharing Rygar. Heart of Fire next?

    There are mage boots available from Waldo and also a set in the Waking the Dead quest. Not sure what version of the book you have, but they are available on the Downloads page if they aren't in your edition.

    Anyway, happy adventuring!

    I am already playing HoF, with three different character in three different Acts. The writing style is excellent as usual, but the gameplay has greatly improved. The chance to "store" a few item enables to develop a different strategy for every fight. And, beside, the chance to side either with the Faith or the Wiccans give a lot of re-playing value.

    As for the boots, I saw them at Waldo's, but they gave bonuses to Speed and Armour and it looked to me pretty futile to have a single point in Armour, when the other greaves gave me +2 in Magic. I probably skipped the other pair somewhere in the tomb.
    By the way, "Waking the Dead" is by far the best and most satisfying quest in Act3 (with the only possible exception of the eponymous "Legion of Shadow"): not only it is fairly long, but gives so many background details about this or that character.

    My advice is don't always rely on stats, look at the ability too. Deflect is a really good ability. Less so with 17 speed I agree.
