Damn this game likes to kick my nuts
Just saying, I enjoy the difficulty. Brings me back to the old days.

Yeah, I remember playing the original Exile games on shareware. Glad to see they are still around.

Love how classic these games are. Brings me back to my childhood. If a game is really easy...is there really any fun anyways? :)

So far, I'm loving the game. It's my second game with Spiderweb; the first one was Avadon, and I'm not sure if it's because it was my first attempt with those games, but I found it more difficult than Avernum.

Avernum is hard, specially at the beggining. But there are plenty of side quests to gain exp. and money.

I'm just stuck on these damn Aranea spiders. OP spider mages.

Those ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s... the ones near fort draco? I had a hard time with those. The best way to slay them (for me) was a preventive ward of thoughts and some battle frenzy for my almost mental-inmune mage.

Yeah I manage to pass them eventually however I do remember that there were many times my party got owned the moment the combat started. Sadly I'm stuck at the Aranea Boss.

Figured it out. If you go north from the Avernum Fort that you start the game in, you will encounter those LARGER Nephil (I forget what they are called, but it's only a little bit different than the word Nephil...I think Nephilam?), and if you kill all of those guys, you get a lot more experience.

I did that, and then I went way back up to that Aranea cave and VERY CAREFULLY kicked their asses using my scrolls (which I hate using, I like to keep as many as I possibly can in case I fight REALLY ridiculous enemies later on), and beat them that way. Make sure you don't step on the runes, and if you can help it, make sure at least your Priest spell user has that spell that can counter mind effecting spells, BECAUSE DAZE IS ANNOYING AS ♥♥♥♥!

With almost 80 hours in the game it's much easier now ;D

Of course, I played Avernum 1-5 over the past 10 years

That probably helped :U

Playing on Torment difficulty because this game is too easy otherwise, try playing Exile. :)

If something seems too powerful for you, especially early in the game, chances are it actually is. The game appears to directly modify your damage done/taken and hit chance with the difference between your level and the monster's. On higher difficulties, monsters will go from being untouchable murderbeasts that smack you for twice your HP bar to completely manageable in just a couple levels, despite having gained almost no stats or gear in the meantime.

I remember the most flagrant moments like that were the worm summoner, the first aranea cave, the random slith warrior packs, and the aranea boss.
