    Norton Antivirus quarentined my copy of Silentpatcher.exe -- this kept the game from launching. Once I beat up on Norton, it let me use the program under protest. I am using Norton 360, version...

    So long again, until next time

    I seem to have a five or six month limit on my sojourns into Istaria. I love the game, but I think I over grind crafting and adventuring and then need a break.

    Re: Improved Revitalize Formula

    From what I can tell, forms that are 1-99 skill level are sold; 100-199 are drop only and I assume the same is true of Jman levels.

    It can take a month or two of checking every day to find most...

    Re: dye removal

    The idea is based on one dye replacing another as colored dyes already do -- Clear dye (or as some games call it, dye solvent) would replace any existing dye with the base color of the item.

    Re: Prove your mettle, warrior quest

    There are Ruxus south of Dalimond and for all their size, they aren't a bad fight (not social). You might as well not throw away the potential XP.
