    In Hammerball, what are you supposed to do with "Sharp-Toothed"? I'd assume score, like any other ball, but it moves around on its own.
    And how do you avoid getting killed by its shockwave attack?
    All the times I've encountered it it ran away when I first approached it and ran towards me right after, which is when I smacked it, of course.
    Okay after actually playing the mode a bunch I know you're not talking about the little buzzy thing, but in fact the giant monster thing. You kill it before it kills you, then play using the gold orb that comes out.

    Huh, this game is a tiny bit hard. Which level comes after GAIAR_sophit? (Chapter I, part IV, when I fight a thing like a worm in darkness)

    Drop your "mouse sensitivity" in options to 100, that should make it easier.

    Why would you want to skip that?

    It's the only good level in the tutorial.

    I wish there was some kind of gem rack. I have unwanted gems coming out of my ears but I never get rid of them because I'm worried I'll need them later.

    Its what it exactly sounds. Its an abyss. But im not sure actually how it came to be, its very confusing. What I have got from the story, is that it once was part of the world, but thanks to the Mainframe called Seraphim, it got sinked into the depths taking the cities and many people with it. Im not sure when this happened. It says 300 year before the last boss fight, but I also think the Gaiar was there, and been the only one surviving it, but that will make him be 300 years old too... The written story is pretty confusing and not really much related to the one you see in the cutscenes.

    On another note: I would love to try the HIB3 one =( Tribal Wars does sound very awesome.

    no the gaiar was the only one who survived the massacre at the start of the game
    you know, the fight where all your friends are slaughtered and you are enslaved and shipped off to the arena

    I know, what confuses me is the part where it says that the abyss collapsed bringing the gaiars with them, and that they explored it and etc. So that would mean that the abyss is also where we begin? And not only the hellish-type of zone that we visit later in the game.

    Thats what confused me, it says the gaiars after been defeated after the end of the first empire, they had to live in the abyss, in fear of the other 2 houses.

    Gaiars are just a faction. And in the story, the Gaiars sank with the Abyss.

    Yup... so why are we in the surface? Or are we sunk in the Abyss? Remember that we are the last of the faction of the Gaiars, . And I know everything about the story that involves the actual solo mode.

    Its the text that comes after and before every chapter that is confusing. Basicly its the event before the last of the Gaiars was born, right?

    Anyway, I have been experiencing A LOT with hammers lately, I even managed to beat Hammerball after few tries(Not that its hard, its boring and stupid) just to get the Relic Hammer. I find it sad that hammers have very few kinds, compared to swords and maces. They are good to, just a bit more difficult to use.

    They're up on the surface because it's a better place to be.
    That's like asking why we are not living on a graveyard.
    The Abyss is a place with demons and stuff, I think.

    And yet your ignoring what is been said. Which is kinda my problem too. My problem is connecting the past of the story, with what we get to experience on the Solo path. Mostly because its a lil bit fussy.

    So first 3 houses, factions, whatever, then the Gaiars take over the other 2, giving birth to the 1st empire, Then they got beaten, and moved to the abyss( If it was such a bad place they wouldnt have went there in the first place, and instead would have fight for their own place on the surface.. After that is what I dont get, well the 7 years of the second empire of Kadish. But then... what happened? That was when Ghaneesh Ghavaat(?) did a pact with the Seraph and attacked the upper kingdom? Ughhh you know nevermind. I will go back to go all smashy smashy with my hammy

    Alright, Guns are the most OP pieces of shit in arena mode. Especially the ones that shoot 1 bomb a second, and the ones that shoot clouds of explosive piss. Those shouldn't be in arena. In Solo? Sure, but Arena just ruins everything.

    My current weapon setup pretty much makes me a dragon with a bladed chain weapon with a ruby as tail attached to a strife with topaz orbs as my head that breathes hot fiyah.

    I went with it since I lost my totally awesome relic axe with that purple gem that kills iron users. It was pure bliss to see 'shattering blow' continuously.

    Also, how do you guys move so fast? I adjusted my DPI but the flares the enemy shoot out gives me slow shitty motion. Slow motion everytime. I already disabled it in the config along with shake, but no.
    Still slow motion. And explosives ruin the game for me completely, I go around parrying strikes, sometimes disarming the enemy by doing so, then I go catching throwing weapons and throwing them back, when I suddenly die for no reason.

    Explosives :<

    k so i don't have any effing clue how to get gems, and I completed the story mode without finding any

    also I played up to the point in tribal mode where it says im going to get a weapon but never gives me one

    Tribal wars gives you a weapon for every round.

    Gems are from grim mode, try making a new character and go do the worm hunt.

    Getting it from humble indie bundle doesn't make a difference.

    I suggest you go Desura to use 1.05.

    You go hunt worms and bees, then there's this tentacle boss that dies in one hit. After you kill him, be sure to grab the shiny shiny stones.

    That's why I always use armor, no matter what weapon I use. Sure it's different and hard to get used to but what else can you do to protect yourself besides using a green stone to sneak out of there, then possibly get pelted again before you can get a hit in?

    I have 4 imperial armor bits and I still get raped by explosions. I will go an entire match without getting touched, then at the end someone throws a siege bomb at point blank and I lose.

    I currently have a hammer with one fire gem that you get when you fight the two people with fire weapons and the sword with two ice gems you get in the fight before you fight the khadish. Sadly, the effects are apparently counter-active.

    Edited:

    Well, if you don't couple them. I don't couple weapons, I'm terrible at it.

    If you want to get rid of the loud squeal after an explosion, remove post_explo.ogg from Media/Sounds in the Hammerfight folder

    Can you put multiple gems on a weapon? Or at least replace the current gem with a new one? I want to put a weak gem on my colossus, but I want to put a large one on it later on, when I get one.

    You can put multiple gems in weapons with multiple slots.

    Once a gem is in a weapon, it cannot be removed unless you freeze the weapon and break it so the gem can be recovered. Destroys the weapon though.

    If you destroy a weapon via freezing in hall doesn't it return? Or does that not work if you reclaim the gem from it?
