Beyond the general quality improvements, it seems that a main focus of this patch was to make the game a little more challenging overall. Which is good!  :yes:

 

Thanks for all of your hard work!!

For some reason I still have version 1.1.0.0034. Steam doesn't want to upgrade the game. :(

So do Explosives no longer scale based on Explosives skill? What does Explosives skill accomplish then?

The list of features and bugfixes is great.

 

However I look at some of the nerfs and just facepalm.

Troubadour with brisk recitation is flat-out a better summoner than Beckoner now. It was already close before this nerf. Beckoner summons might do more damage, but you wont be able to actually have 100% uptime on them like a troubadour can.

 

Not to mention the Spiritshift nerfs, which I can't fathom were actually warranted given their existing limitations and total lack of gear synergy.

Mirke is no longer so drunk as to be naked with a human body


I don't think I've ever been drunk enough to switch species, but then again there's a lot of my 20's I don't remember...

"Bounty heads can no longer be pickpocketed from their owners."

So how are we supposed to acquire them then?

 

"Mirke is no longer so drunk as to be naked with a human body."

That is very out of character for her.

Nice nerfs... too bad my whole team still has the permanent Zealous Focus (which they got from some random NPC in Queen's Berth) on them... Any idea on how to get rid of this bug? Any plans to fix it? Going back to some save from dozen of hours back is not something I'm looking forward to...

Wow. They absolutely GUTTED Beckoner. There is absolutely NO reason to pick Beckoner now. Sure, you have more summons, but they have a shorter duration and all it really gives you is just Burst really. Plus, they'll die quick and you'll be powerless since you have to wait MUCH longer for your chants to come back to even summon it again.

Do the several fixes to localization issues include English typos reported by the community?

This bug is still there:

https://forums.obsid...arasitic-staff/

 

Permanent Concelhaut's Parasitic Staff and no soul bound weapon.... This is really bad

 

PS. Also the italian translation is still broken, even on the main menu

 

PS2. Also WTF... My multi-character team is now broken because many abilities are now locked.... I don't like nerf on abilities.

It's the worst update ever made.

 

PS3. I still like a lot the AI scripting, well done there.

Minor issue, but would have been nice if that got tackled.
