    I just started playing from the start as I didn't like my previous party development paths. Anyway this time instead of Glaive I chose to specialize in Guisarme so I wanted to get a masterwork one to upgrade it later on. Unfortunately something is wrong for when I try to purchase it from Otis MasterWrork Battle Axe appears in my inventory instead of a guisarme. This looks really bad as I have already reached the Temple. Can someone help me? I can edit files if I knew what to change. Or perhaps someone knows where in the game is a MasterWork Guisarme? I have both the 1.1 officia patch and the Co8 2.0 patch installed.

    In terms of gameplay, this is one of the major drawbacks of ToEE - the masterwork items, or rather the lack of them. It's truly a bitch that while one of the most worthwile feats that exist in the game requires those items, they are near-impossible to come by in most cases.

    Still, I think I've owned a masterwork guisarme. In the first level of the temple masterwork weapons appear randomly in barrels. If you're lucky, you may get one from there.

    Other than that, there's the Co8 patch, which will stock the smith in Hommlet will all masterwork items. :)

    Please show mercy! :cry:

    Well, if you don't have any savegame prior to the temple, and if nobody can direct you to the files you want to fiddle with here, I suggest that you take a look at the Atari boards. I personally dislike them, but the chance is bigger that someone around there knows what to be done than here.

    I didn't want to register, well I did after all, albeit not without tedious "we don't accept free email addressess" shit.

    If you want a magical guisarme, get a character who can craft magic arms and armor and a character who can cast either magic weapon or greater magic weapon. What you want to do is cast (greater) magic weapon, that will add the normal guisarme to the craft list. Add as many +'s as you can, then add a non enhancement bonus tag, such as keen or flaming, then hit create. That will make the guisarme magical permanently.
