Sacred Gold, TO EASY! Or how do I make it harder?
Hello, I've enjoyed Sacred quite a bit...but one thing that just bugged me was that it's to damned easy! I almost never use potions unless I'm fighting a dragon...and I two shot a dragon on some island...

During the early game I was fearful of bandits...BANDITS, no one in thier right mind has ever been fearful of bandits...

Now I oneshot all regular mobs and 1-2 shot elites...

I wish the game retained it's difficulty during the early game truthfully, which brings me to my question.

What it says on the tin, how do I make the game harder? Is there a mod or maybe some files I can alter? The game has just become boring at this point.

Im playing on the highest difficulty available to be, which is silver. I cannot imagine it would get much harder if I got to the higher difficulties, much less me have to slog my way through the game multiple times just to have fun on the higher difficulties...

There are 5 difficulties: Bronze 1-60 level, Silver 20-100 Level, Gold 60-140 Level, Platinum 100-180 and Niobium 140+. The max level you can get is level 200

Yeah, been looking for a long time and it seems the only way I can make the game harder is to beat it about 3 times or mod it before I can have fun...IMO this is terrible game design in terms of difficulty...

Export your character into Underworld and complete the game from there. It's a little harder than Ancaria and shorter. Then you can move on to gold. But you have to be at least level 25.

play hardcore, they higher difficulties are challenging when your char gets deleted on death.

just finished with my battlemage on platinum (which comes after gold, which comes after silver)
enemies are usually about 10 lvl over you so it pretty hard
and if you finish that you unlock Niobium (and enemies start out at lvl 129 in the starting area) they need several 10k+ damage fireballs
thats how hard it can get

Have you done all the sidequests? I can assure you if you haven't done the Plains of Tyr-Hadar side missions you wouldn't be saying that Sacred's easy. Not only did I have to fight two Ice Dragons at once, but also at least twenty Ice Elves. Surviving that took all my Lesser Health Potions, and my Health potions.

I have, and the only reason I died 3 times was because I didn't take it seriously because everything was such a joke compared to how powerful I am.

Once I put some effort into killing the dragons they went down like wimps...

Oh and those Ice Elves...I round up 20 at a time and kill them with one skill...

Things just don't have enough HP and just don't do enough Damage to be a threat to me...even Dragons and that's just weird...

Are Dwarves just overpowered or something?

Just depends on the frequency of your skills dropping and how you built your character I suppose. If you started silver, then head to gold and upwards if you're looking for a challenge. This is an old game that was meant to have multiple playthroughs on each of the difficulties. Also, remember what other people have said, that the other difficulties unlock when you have a character reach a particular level requirement.

After I beat the game upwards of 3-4 times before it becomes difficult...I understand beating the game once to unlock something like "hardcore/insane" mode where is't stupidly difficult, but to have to unlock each difficulty by beating the game so many times is just boring...exactly why I've edited the files to make things harder...best I could do for some sort of challenge... :/

then go play a different game and leave this one. either you play and enjoy it or don't and move on, simple.
