Default Spreadsheet of Useful Equips with Minor Location Spoilers

Hi, all. I've been working on a list of all the useful equipment in the game so I don't have to parse through the enormous translated fan manual. So, I've made a spreadsheet of what I consider to be the most useful equipment, with the best at the top. It assumes a little knowledge of the game, but should be pretty straightforward even to new players. I made this for use with The King's Bounty Savegame Scanner that works on both this game and Armored Princess: http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=11780, with checkboxes for each savegame you scan at the start of a new game.

(And just FYI, I find it helpful to indicate in the checkboxes different symbols for when in the game a particular piece of equipment will become available like "S" for available at the start, a "*" for anything up to the Islands of Freedom and Kordar/Demonis, an "X" for anything in Ellinia/Land of the Dead and a "H" if it's as late as Haas' Labyrinth.

There may be a few cases in which I've named an item wrong, as I was using the fan manual translation as my guide along with my memory, but there shouldn't be too many errors. Also, a few terms in the Russian translation are a bit sketchy about whether an item affects damage or attack (both referred to as a "loss" if I'm not mistaken), so they might not be accurate. If anyone sees any errors in this document, just post here and I'll fix it.

Very nice collection. I don't really have the time to check all the items so I just browsed through them. I wonder how you determine what to put in italic and what not sometimes. For example you put the Full Helm which is utter crap in italic while you put the Marshall's Baton, unarguably one of the strongest items in the game, usefull for any class, not in italic. Nobody ever needs 4 Def. Ever. But a thousand leadership ? For the biggest part of the game that is 5-10% of your total leadership, especially as a warrior that amounts to 9.5% total damage...

Points, taken! Thanks, Vulture. I definitely should have had the baton in italics. This spreadsheet is definitely slanted toward my list of racial-playthroughs, so I put the Full Helm in italics even though in a normal game, I'd never want it, but if I'm stuck with an all-melee army like I eventually plan to be with "The Outcasts" in my topic in the W/P/M forum, then I'm going to need some defense. (I don't know that watching melee units dying en masse will be much fun, and if that's *9* more playthroughs away, I don't know that I'll have the patience for restocking troops constantly.

So, if you were just playing a typical Impossible TKB game, I gather that trying to boost some stat other than Def would be a good idea on as many slots as possible, even on armor? That's been my typical approach, too, as avoid damage altogether is far superior than taking hits.

Do you see anything off the top of your head that you think needs to be in italics? I already need to revise this as I didn't see the glaring typo in my heading of all places.

I'll look into that at some point. At the moment I can't be arsed, quite frankly xD Kinda lazy.

But yes, any stat is superior over defense. Even with a strong melee setup. Well, on armor you rarely ever have a choice. My last Warrior character wore two sun cloaks (Zombie Rina has an armor slot) Cloak Of Wizardry is an option and for a mage I don't think there's a way around Dragon Cloak.

Btw restocking isn't an option. Sacrifice and Time Back/Ressurrection are. No losses :>

Really? I'm surprised to hear that you wouldn't consider defense even for an all melee team.

And I don't see how I wouldn't have to do at least some restocking of troops as the races degenerate into worse units without having Inquisitors for the endless Rage during those late game battles with thousands of troops. Perhaps I still have more to learn about tactics, though? I thought Inquisitors + Lina's chargers was the only way to reliably achieve no losses when there isn't a no-retaliation enemy unit left!

Very nice. I dont see any symbols though, you mentioned to classify them as to what part of the game u can find them. Maybe thats a problem with open office?(I dont have excel), also u just separated them into different colors for sets right? Im only on my first playthrough of the game, and I have played AP, before, once, so Itll definetly help newbies like myself.
