Couple of questions
Is there a way to ungroup items (potions, crystals)?

What are the wapons later in the game? I have few runestones. Should I save them for more powerful weapons? I wander, if stronger weapons later in the game can be upgraded?

I'm not too far myself, but I can answer a couple of questions. Shift-Clicking an item will bring up a little window asking how many you want to pick up.

From what the instructions say, all weapons can be upgraded once. I'm not sure about later weapons, but try not to wait too long. I have a habit of saving items for a "good use" and end up never using them. :p

Just in case you didn't know, There are stairs leading down into a private forge in Nicodamus's shop back on the main floor of Avadon, and you can use the Runestones there. There are other places, but that's the only one I know of right now.

@Gavener Haha, since posting that, I made it my mission to use the items whenever I'm fighting more than 5 enemies. A lot of them are really useful(which is why I was saving them), but it's more fun to use them that "wait" for the time that'll I would have used it before. :p

@HoneyBadger I don't know how much you've played since posting this, but I've put in quite a lot(50+ hours), so I can give better advice now.

Don't bother saving runestones. ♥♥♥♥ers drop like candy. Well, maybe not THAT much, but often enough and honestly, their bonuses aren't THAT great. If anything, you'll be getting replacement runestones and better faster than you get better equipment.

As for what can be upgraded: All Weapons, Body Armors, Pants, Rings, Hats, gloves(bracers) can be upgraded once.

I played some 10 hours. It got too tedious. I don't like party-combat, tried to play with only two characters all along. It's a good RPG nevertheless.

I cannot seem to upgrade distance weapons (bows, razordisks, javelins), Rings and Pendants/Necklaces. What am I doing wrong, or is your information incorrect?
I think the game rules are just intransparent and nonsensical in the details.

By this point, it's been a long time since I've played. I think you're right about the Rings/Amulets, now that I concentrate on the Issue. As for bows, I never really used them enough to warrent the use of a gem. Especially since the unique bows were pretty good.

I played a shadowwalker for my main...pretty sure a titanium razordisk drops for you (maybe halfway throught the game). I googled my way through this game, had a few problems with mechanics and I suck at strategy so needed help with the distribution of stats. I had a titanium javelin to give to Janelle too, the titanium ones drop later in game. Bought a good bow for my sorcerer (Natalie) from Questa in Castle Verbeaux. Heavily relied on the annotated maps to get around. http://keepersofavadon.com/Pages/Lynaeus.html. Seem to remember that you cannot use runes with distance weapons, rings, necklaces.
