Sabres of Infinity help?


#1

Ok, since Guns of Infinity came out, I really really want to beat this game but I’m stuck on battle scene. It seems that what ever I do, I get killed. Not sure if its the choices that I made are to spread apart or I’m just fairly unlucky since I am usually able to beat the game in after a couple play through. My soldiering is at 59%, charisma 5%, and intellect 50%. My unit is 25% discipline, morale is 55% which is the highest I was able get so far, and loyalty is 35%.


#2

Your unit stats are what’s getting you killed. Your men will abandon you with loyalty that low and won’t perform very well unless you get higher discipline. There’s a guide I could send you if you’d prefer that to experimenting on your own.


#3

Yeah if you could. So far I’ve died like at least 20 times at end and all of my stats are around like those above.


#4

I went ahead and sent the guide. Good luck in Guns.


#5

Thanks man, hopefully I won’t die this time.


#6

If you could send me a guide as well, that would be fantastic, I’ve been looking to perfect my officer.


#7

Sent you one too, good luck.


#8

Could I please get the guide too? Want to make sure I got everything


#9

I would suggest putting the guide link here that way you don’t need to keep sending it to people individually.

Jack of all trade nets you a 50/60/69 23 year old or 30 and 50/65/74 all medals thunderer and lanzarel.

Here it is for anyone who wants it, put together by @Player


#11

Why not start with a 30 year old? I can get 61 soldiering 69 intelligence and 70 charisma that way,


#12

You’ll start get stat hits from old age way sooner.


#13

How bad are we talking? And wouldn’t a stat like int go up not down?


#14

We don’t know. The next game hasn’t come out yet lol.


#15

As @Drbg said we don’t have any exact numbers but considering a 30 year old could very well be in his mid seventies by the end of the series, they could be quite substantial.

Also, intellect will also decrease. After all no matter how smart someone is, eventually their mind will dull somewhat.


#16

Am I supposed to lose health during the charge? Having faith allows me to come out unharmed.


#17

Yes, but Thunderer grants you far more in the way of rep. While Faith is great, Thunderer is simply the better long term option if you have 30 soldiering or more.


#18

Why is thunderer better? Does the horse allow you to pass certain checks? Besides reputation (Which scales down) I don’t see the benefit.


#19

That scaled down reputation can mean the difference between being able to commit to the Forlorn Hope with Cazarosta, or being forced to do it alone.

And yes, Thunderer does give automatic success to at least one check in the battle of Blogia. It also (iirc) makes winning the battle at River Kharan against Loch slightly easier

That, along with the reputation boost, makes him more worthwhile than faith


#20

You’re correct, Thunderer’s able to do some impressive skull-bashing against the Antari peasants.
