Default using scrolls?

June 7th, 2009, 23:39
Archer with mana = 120 and has 2 rings each +10 mana. I want to open imposssible lock with a scroll which requires 180 mana. I drunk a mana potion (50%) then left click. Didn't work. Is it because I don't have enough mana?

@rpgdude The mana potion doesn't add 50% of mana if refills 50% mana.

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

It would be very hard for a non-mage to use that scroll. Who want to invest XP to raise mana to 180? Is there another way?

Don't think so… Those impossible lock chests only contain money IIRC so they're not that important.

I'm playing a mage and I'm using these scrolls all the time. Learning a skill for a couple of chests isn't really worth it, I think.

Sure. Invest in thieving. <grin>

Still, I've never opened those chests, only going as far as "open difficult locks".

No, Zaleukos, it's only a requirement for the books, not for the scrolls. (at least I think so)

Then I dont really get what the thread is about. In 1.6 and earlier you could use the open lock scrolls without investing any LP in mana.

So what was the requirement in 1.6 for using the scroll? Is it the same as mana = 180?

I believe it isn't due to any patch at all. The requirement for mana of open lock scroll differs greatly depending on the role you play. For mages, mana=20, for archer mana=180. I just found out when I started playing mage.

Forget about the above statement, since it is not accurate And to answer to Zaleukos ' question:

So the patch upped mana requirements for scrolls?
the answer is, it is not the patch itself but if you turn on the AB then your mana requirment will shoot up from mana=20 to mana=180 for this particular scroll

I found it out by playing an archer with AB on at first, then later I played it with AB off.
