Trying to get through the secret door (#6) on the left side of St Admus. Just can't trigger it. Is there an awareness check I'm missing? Something else? Thanks

Love the game. Appreciate your time.

For clarity, that's the secret door down to the Hellish Cave.
What's your "find secrets" rate? Companions? It's a higher level secret door so it might be harder to locate. You can always uses Scrolls of Detection or secret finding equipment (through traits etc).

Also:
Since the game does a secret check every few seconds, you can just wait by the door till you get a lucky roll. It could take awhile depending on your level and secret finding rate.

I tried this once on the next secret door inside Hellish Cave. Around 5 minutes of waiting on hot lava... and not the door didn't appear, while I had 30% of revealing them :D

Yep, some of the higher level secret doors practically require using a Detect Secrets scroll or a higher level of finding secrets. It's one time the pure physical builds get edged out by secret finding builds (high mental traits, equipment etc).
I try to have my 2-H Warrior builds include trap finding abilities which carries over to finding secret doors.

Good secrets shouldn't be easy to find :)

Tried to justify that tactic in role-play. :)
"Hey, Companion, we're going to stand around in flames"
"Um... why?" asked the increasing frantic Companion."
"I had a psychic vision there might be a secret door here someone"

The things we put our Companions through....

It was clearly like that, while she was spamming her heal to keep as both there alive, so I suppose I was pretty convincing :D
I've done with Hirge so strange things already, that I am quiet surprised she didn't left me yet. Maybe they will get some free will stuff soon and I will have to start caring about her :D
