So I'm 52 hours in now and level 27 (or 28? I have a horrible memory and it was late when I leveled and turned it off last night), working my way through the Plains of Erathell. This is officially the longest I've played a game other than World of Warcraft in at least 10 years. I've stuck with my pure sorcery build and Meteor is pretty ridiculous. I try to only use it for large aoe groups because one shotting everything gets boring after awhile. And I have 2 houses now, so screwing up in Canneroc doesn't bother me anymore. Except I'm a completionist, so I want to do that questline on another character eventually.
I have a couple of questions, however. I'm playing on PC (well, Bootcamp running Windows 7) and considering it's a 6 year old Mac pretending to be a PC, the game runs pretty smooth. My only problem is though, sometimes the game doesn't respond to a keypress. It's rather annoying to run into a fight and start trying to spam my heal instead of casting a spell because the game doesn't realise I pushed the button to switch abilities. So basically, I'm just wondering if this is something other people have experienced or is it because my computer is ancient and sh*tty? It's not game breaking by any means, just annoying.
And my second question is potentially a stupid one, but I have no experience with games that use this type of save file. Can I create another character without losing the one I'm playing now? I'm thinking yes, since "save game" from the main menu allows you to create a new save file, but the auto saves confuse me. I'm too wussy to try because I don't want to lose my character. Thanks for anyone who cares to help me out and apologies for being clueless.
