There were also some inconsistencies with the translations and too many word-to-word translations as well. Like in the settings, there were values, Low, Medium, Up(High) and difficulty levels were named as Easy, Normal and Difficult (Hard). So those are fixed as well. And most of the special abilities were renamed since Drakensang 1, like Stormblade was renamed as Blade Flurry, so I also changed them back.

And since you can now pick up three advantages/disadvantages, I wanted to bring them a bit further and there is now new advantages/disadvantages, traits (0 cost) and background advantages (representing characters childhood/youth). All of them fully optional though.

And of course the speed up for walking/running speeds as well for herb gathering and skinning made return from Ergo's Fixpack for Drakensang 1.

It's a really nice game. I recommend it to all BG-style lovers.

Great.

If you guys happen to notice any issues with AddonPack or find any other localization bugs (with translation), report them to me as well.

Wait, what translation are you talking about? A fan-made translation, I guess. To my knowledge, there has not been an English release of D:TRoT yet. So you're playing a German version with a fan-made English translation/mod, is that so?

Oh damn, I've missed it somehow then. Unless Nordic countries are getting the UK version (which is often the case, AFAIK). I sure haven't seen any copies on shelf in any game stores here (Finland), nor do the local net retailers have it yet (those that actually have it in their catalogue list it as 'To Be Released'). Ergo where did you get your copy?

Yeah, it's not available here yet, except for pre-order from www.cdon.com.

But you can order it from BeNeLux countries.
Game Mania - 39€ or maybe from one of these: http://www.budgetgaming.be/game-prof…f+time_PC.html

Most of the features will work, but obviously things like new advantages will be out of scope if you are already playing. Won't break the game in anyway though.

PS. And updated to v1.35 with some fixes.

If you liked Drakensang, then you're going to love TRoT. Most of the issues have been fixed, since Drakensang 1 and there is couple of new archetypes as well (Tribal Warrior = Barbarian and Dwarven Geode = Druid). Though I've only played it for few hours, but it just feels better, not stretched too long as Drakensang 1.

Not too bad reviews from Metacritic either with 84 average from 9 critics, though most of them are from Germany but not all. Translation is not perfect though, but not bad either.

And it's been confirmed that it will be available from Steam too.

Though, you could still order that from EU, like Game Mania.

EDIT:

And little update:
v1.40
- Added new traits "Ancestors Blood", "One Hander" and "Talented"
- Restored "Astral Block" disadvantage
- Casting times adjusted to better follow P&P
* Clarum Purum (cure poisons) casting time increased to 7 rounds (was 1)
* Balm of Healing casting time increased to 5 rounds (was 3)
- Renamed "Arrow Tempest" to "Rain of Arrows" as it was in Drakensang 1
- Renamed existing advantages like "Vitality Bonus" to "Vigor" to follow P&P naming
- Balanced and fixed the new advantages
- Minor localization fixes

I started playing this game the day before yesterday; I'm a female burglar still exploring Narodet, did my first two chores for the Thieves Guild. Today I learned about your (and other) interesting MODs.

Do I have to start anew after having your (and other) Mod(s), or is it possible to integrate my saves?
