    On the subject of magic schools; What are the best two overall specializations assuming you have to choose? And what are the two schools that you lose the least amount of spells from by dumping? (What are the worst two specializations? like divination, divination sucks)

    And I'd very much like to rp a necromancer character, but the necro spell school is a bit lacking. What are the best necro school spells and best strategies using them?

    Hi Winston
    My two favorite Magic schools are Evocation and Conjuration. Of late I tend to go with Conjuration as I find "Stinking Cloud" to be the best all around "Crowd Control" spell in the game, especially if you have a Cleric cast "Spiritual Weapon" right in the middle of it. The two schools that I almost always give up are Illusion and Necromancy. There is no way to dump divination (believe me I tried).

    Divination cannot be barred per RAW/pnp. That's as intended.

    Evocation is the easiest school for beginners probably; not hard to understand blowing stuff up or zapping them.

    Conjuration has become my favorite school overall (not for summons; let a druid do that); although Enchantment is fun, it's way too easy to abuse/overpowered in TOEE currently with the save penalty missing.

    If Co8 ever puts in the popular line of Orb of x spells from pnp, and perhaps Evard's Tentacles, Conjuration would hands down be the winner imo.

    My apologies if this is not the correct thread for this, but I am having trouble installing the 6.1.0NC modpack. I installed ToEE to a custom location from GOG. When I try to apply the Atari patches (per the instructions on installing the mod pack) I get a "Cannot locate ToEE, Any English, on your computer" message." I assume that the GOG version is already patched, so maybe that's not a big deal.

    Anyway, when I try to install the modpack (aimed at the custom directory, F:\Temple of Elemental Evil) I get this error message: "F:\Temple of Elemental Evil. An error occurred while trying to rename a file in the destination directory. MoveFile failed, code 2. The system cannot find the file specified."

    I can run base ToEE fine, but I'd really like to install the modpack. Any ideas? I'm running Win7 with SP1.

    See the thread in my signature for a checklist of things to try (run as administrator, etc.). If none of that works, let us know here and we'll see what we can do to help.

    (The GoG version is indeed pre-patched, so don't worry about that.)

    Attempting to Install V6.1 NC and McAfee is spitting up all over the updates. Complaining about the Artemis Trojan being installed during the update. What gives?

    What gives is that the nocd that the project uses is blacklisted by antivirus (probably because of publisher payola, but it might be confused because of the code injection technique).
    And no one else bothered to make a new nocd that doesn't trip all over antivirus.


    Well, it might even be true, but i doubt it.

    McAfee is well known for having issues with the ToEE no-cd executable, though its alerts are a false positive. See the link in my sig for what to do about it.*

    I use AVG-Free myself and have no issues whatsoever after adding the executable to the exceptions list once.

    *Namely this part:

    Gaear,

    I appreciate the quick response I told McAfee to take a flying leap.

    Thanks again,
