The archive we were trying to make would contain the last official release of the CD by Bethesda... So yeah.

But it is up for discussion.

Darth - yes, that's what I meant. I meant to hit UD, and somehow ended up with UL. That's what I get for not reading my own posts.

Seems it was a false positive after all. Good to know. Thanks once more, all.

Does anybody know how the weapon skills, besides HtH, in Daggerfall work?

Hand-to-Hand increases damage and chance to hit but what do the other weapon skills do?

Do they also increase damage or is damage solely increased by the weapon in use(+str modifier) and the weapon skill increases only the chance to hit?

How do they work?

Thanks.

Well if the skills hold true to Morrowind, which I think they do in most ways, then increases in the other weapon skills increases the damage of the weapons related to that skill.

The archive has been replaced, since at Abandonia we aim at preservation. If you look at the files inside the CD image included, their last modified date attribute is set at 1996. That comes from Bethesda and it must be legit.

After a thorough examination we have every reason to believe that the files discussed above are harmless. We do not want to discourage in the least their usage, you can find the fan-made Windows-friendly installer with mods at:

Thanks, I really can't find anything about that particular part of Daggerfall's game mechanics. Not even at uesp.net.


Does anybody know where to get Soul Gems, to trap souls to enchant items?

You can buy them at the Mages guild (or was it Wizards guild?) after you have advanced few ranks in there, from this guy who sells magic items there.

I must say, I always loved the Elder Scrolls games and this was one of my favorites. ReDLing for a good time!

Thanks, found them. They don't seem to be really necessary. An ancient vampire soul give 1000 EP, just as much as "damage from holy places". I just gave my gear "damage from holy places" 4/5 times instead.


Are smaller weapons really quicker in Daggerfall? I compared short blades like daggers and such to 2-handed weapons like warhammers, war axes, flails or dai-katanas and couldn't see a difference.
