What?! You mean there are spells on 2k2 which aren't extremely powerful?

Woo .. so long as you have minor (or major) healing and a bit of patience (along with flaming aura), Balor is quite the god. :D

Re your sig:
1) It's spelled Nicotine
2) We generally go with Graalcoholism, Graalcoholics Anonlymous, and occasionally Graalzheimers. It works better.

He prayed to the altar firstand doubles his grace first that is the only way at that lvl even with rings will not raise it that high.

Is it true you need 300/150 grace to get Rage?

I'm assuming that you need to get up to 150 grace, unless they changed something like they did with Flaming Aura.

I'm sure someone must have 600/300 grace by now. It is so simple to get it.

You also need to have a wisdom level greater than or equal to the level of the spell. (example, aengus' defence spell is only 150 grace but level 40 spell, so it won't be gotten anytime soon.)

Since we're reviving a 9 day old thread, cyrin (;)) i'll post too.

It is simple, yes, but it is so amazingly, amazingly time consuming. For a start you have to go crazy with the stat potions so you got 20 wis+power. this is the second-most time consuming part and ohhh yes, boy howdy is it time consuming. I'm in the process of trying to do this, but it takes a loooong time, especially when other people are nabbing the quest items too =/ (plus i'm lazy and haven't been playing much/trying for quests much lately).
The next part is prepping a weapon; this i have done, 8 slots. Then you gotta get EVEN MORE, YES EVEN MORE POTIONS. about a million of them. For the first improve power bonus scroll you add, you need 1(or is it two?) power potions. Then for the next sroll, you need double that, and then double again, and then double again for the next scroll and so on and so on and so forth and so forth full stop full stop full stop

If you ever manage to do this, then you gotta switch gods until you're lvl1 wisdom again, then go balor for laming aura, turn it on and switch to your prepped weapon, then kill lords this way until lvl10. when you're lvl10, choose your god, switch to it (while staing at lvl10 somehow, maybe lvl up to 12 in advance) and then use avatar while holding the weapon to kill lords.

This is the method to get 600/300 grace. Not impossible, but amazingly lengthy, which i actually think is a damned good thing. If it was as easy to do as becoming a "pwning" pker with EAs and IWDs and stuff, everyone would be doing it and laming around with prayers instead, and prayers would not be special at all. If/when someone (hoping it'd be me...i bet it will be someone like Ed or Zoe first though o_o) finally does manage it, it will be kewl 'cause they'd be like "super duper priest person with unmatchable praying powers" XD

Uhm... why would I have to hold the prepped weapon? All it would do is raise your grace - not raise it permanently in comparison to leveling without one in hand. Maybe I'm missing a point here, but the main reason for a preppes wis/pow-weapon is to increase your max grace when you're actually praying, isn't it? And why go back to wisdom level 1?

I'm wondering why theirs like 5 pages for all other gods and only 2 for Balor ?

Do you all not like balor ? I for one follow the demon god.

Monkeyboy_McGee
08-11-2004, 03:27 PM
He sux, that's why. People (usually) use gods not because they're gods, but because they contain scripts that give good stuff. I worship aengus, for the luck+1..although my character prays to bile e.e

Dehitay
08-11-2004, 06:02 PM
Bumb, you worship Aengus for the luck+2
but back to the thing that surprises me
They changed the Flaming Aura requirements?
I thought it was 300/150
It's different now?

Nappa
08-11-2004, 10:21 PM
Balor doesn't suck, by far. I wwear an RoW and an RoS and I definately need the extra magic resist.. Even with balor im at -2 magic resist I think. I didn't join for flaming aura, that is just a good bonus

Flaming aura you get automatically when you start worshipping balor

.....maybe I should consider switching to Balor
to my knowledge, it's the quickest way to level wisdom

Balor needs to have a extra spell or something since that virtrol was de-powered.
Or at least make it low instead of medium to obtain the spell please.

You need 150/300 grace for Vitrol/Rage, But you can obtain Flaming Aura any time =)

Sam
10-23-2005, 02:07 PM
You get a higher grace by raising your wisdom lvl. To do that use a prayer to kill monsters. A good one is cause wounds. You will find prayerbooks like this in the northern shop in Tanartia.

Hey, shouldnt Balor have a Whip or somehting o_o
If someone can script it, just use the mourning star script but get rid of the spin o_o

Craigus
12-16-2005, 06:13 PM
Balor gets Flaming aura, vitriol, + 30 magic resistance and at the moment i believe it gives luck +1 (although its meant to give -1 maybe someone could check that)

I think some of the other gods need to be made more intresting such as Aengus and dian first.

jaws908
12-20-2005, 07:21 PM
If you ask me Balor is too strong, with a good spell from the begining And magic resist? I agree with Craigus, Aengus and dian should be "Uped" a lil more somehow

*further revives* At least make the flaming aura work, the god is useless otherwise. If that was fixed then the pkers would be more spread out, ogma, bile, gov and Balor. It would bring back the old fighting styles, where tricks were half the battle, such as scrolls and resistances.

Make Balor not useless. I wasted 40 wisdom level for Vitriol Splash only to find it was long disabled. ;[

Draenin

Vitriol should be re-enabled. It was fixed on Debug to be a powerful cone-shaped AoE instead of what it used to be.. a purely destructive spell that wrecked items. As long as it's safe, why not re-enable it?

Any plans to help balor followers in any way? I took time to read about flaming aura in older topics on the forum and how so many people complained about how "overpowered" it was, failing to mention the possibility that they MAY have had RoW or other combat based rings on when they were getting roasted, now it only lasts 15 seconds, and it is definitely far less effective in strength than when i last used it on lords before the magic system overhaul.

With two rings of fire equipped (shouldn't those boost how strong a spell or prayer is?) i still could not kill a Trex in one cast of FA, with the many penalties balor has, no relics, no angel class monsters and no effects for fear status, it's not a very attractive god to even follow.

Yeah, that was a really weird and unfortunate bug. But still incredible. That spell definitely needs to make a comeback, even in its current form on Debug.

10-15-2015, 06:53 PM
It is now 2015, and balor is the most unused god in all of GK, can flaming aura be changed somehow? Longer duration than about 10-15 seconds or some type of greater damaged to ice based monsters?


I just attempted to kill the heavils and ice heavils in the crystal dungeon to no avail, they just heal far too rapidly for flaming aura, the prayers damage has been driven into the ground thanks to abundant complaints by the idiot powerplayers of the past and is completely not worth following the god right now.
