  2. Disclaimer: This will be long. Very, very long. This is not quite a build guide but rather a more in-depth look at the Fury Druid and all its components. Most of it comes from my own personal testing and experiences playing it and the game, as well as some other sources, such as the Pillars Discord and C.LE's An Almanac for the Deadfire. As such, I'll be discussing a lot of things in more detail, so if you wanted a short concise guide, this won't be it. I'll be giving my opinion on pretty much everything about the class, from creation, to leveling, to gameplay, to itemization. Of course,

  3. The first problem for me is that casters profit way more from it than other classes. The second problem (that is connected to the first) is that Brilliant lets you regain uses of Wall of Draining and Salvation of Time which both can be used to prolong Brilliant again - which is an OP cycle. I guess we all agree on that basically. Now there's just the question how to solve this. Anyway: my question regarding "foe-only" Brilliant was answered. So thanks all.

  7. There are two things that work in favor of casting Great Maelstrom naturally: 1. It's main strength is more in dealing with trash fights. You cast Great Maelstrom, fight ends instantly. I wouldn't actually use it in boss fights where Touch of Death might be more powerful. Of course this isn't mutually exclusive with carrying scrolls. Scrolls, on the other hand, are a bit too expensive to spam every fight. 2. A good bit of the damage comes with high intellect leading to longer AOE duration (more damage ticks). Scrolls don't take into account any of your attributes aside from dexterity

  9. I got some good news on the housing front. We are renting from some friends. Eventually they want to develop the property. It is zoned residential/commercial, and they plan on putting a business at the front and condo units behind or on top. I was worried they were looking to break ground in the next yeae, but it sounds like they are waiting. They are also interested in letting us buy a condo unit, which might be perfect for us. We love the location, so hopefully we can figure out a way to stay long term.

  10. I've been driving all over the midwest making all the money I can to build for a downpayment. I hope to buy a house in the North Carolina/Tennessee mountains later this year. More likely than not it will be on the Tennessee side, but that's not 100% yet. Mortgage rates are still at very low rates because of the pandemic and I'm one of the few lucky enough to not he crippled by it because of my job, so I want to take advantage of the situation as best as I can. On the one hand it feels kind of weird to try to use a crisis to my advantage. On the other hand, I had nothing to do with the crisis a

  11. Back to games people actually care about: Evil Genius 2 will have Brian Blessed as the voice actor for Red Ivan. According to Rebellion, this means the game is also an official sequel to Flash Gordon.

  13. I haven't played Exodus yet, but I enjoyed both 2033 and Last Light well enough. Metro's biggest failing is that it's not as good as S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but, well, nothing is.

" other than elvish, or perhaps australian, we couldn't think o' a likely challenger to the klingon guinness title, so not a surprise at all. and don't tell us australians predominant speak english. have listened to a group o' australians speaking more than a few times and we need a freaking translator as often as not. HA! Good Fun!

  15. Made a new (hidden) Keyword, added it to one of the Brilliant effects. Made a duplicate of the Fireball_Aoe attack named Fireball_Aoe_Brilliant, made it hostile-only and added it as an extra attack to the original Fireball_Aoe. Added a conditional to Fireball_Aoe so that it will ignore all targets if the caster has an effect with the new Brilliant Keyword. Added a conditional to Fireball_Aoe_Brilliant so that it will only fire if the caster has an effect with the new Brilliant Keyword. Basically makes the original attack ignore everything and puts a hostile-only duplicate on top if it whe

  18. You're not saying the same thing. 1) 'Strain' on natgas supply was not the problem, it physically freezing and reducing supply was. Even if wind power had been at 100% nominal power- which no one should be relying on- it would not and could not make up that difference. Wind power only reduced first, it had no influence on natgas power dropping. They wouldn't have had Scotty shouting down the lines about not being able to give it more or his natgas plant'll blow cap'n, they'd know it can produce x MW of power- and you cannot run the turbines out of spec. 2) a,b are conflation, at best

  19. No. https://www.eia.gov/beta/electricity/gridmonitor/dashboard/electric_overview/regional/REG-TEX http://www.ercot.com/news/releases/show/225369 "As of 9 a.m., approximately 46,000 MW of generation has been forced off the system during this extreme winter weather event. Of that, 28,000 MW is thermal and 18,000 MW is wind and solar." It wasn't "wind farms failing" because wind provides a small fraction of Texas power (under 10% compared to about 65% for gas in total dependable capacity). It was, in fact, mostly natural gas pumping systems freezing because Texas NG

  20. something I realized recently in case it is not already common knowledge: I think that to avoid the first risky fight in the Oracle of Wael small room, you should not steal things in the rooms with big Wael Eyes looking at you and not use the mages quest scrolls on the machine in the Memory Hoarder room until you have already talked with the oracle

  21. When you're 16, summer can't come fast enough and lasts forever! When you're 30, summer boils down to a couple weeks of vacation that's fun but over in an eyeblink. When you're 50, by the time you notice it was summer, it's already winter.

  22. Actually, loosing the memories wouldn't bother me too much, they'd make things a whole lot easier actually. It honestly would probably suck balls to be a kid today, but it certainly wasn't bright and rosy in the 90's either. No, I'm thinking a pretty extreme makeover that would've been alot easier before puberty. I'm probably, health permitting, going to change my gender. Something that wasn't allowed or even considered possible when I grew up was for someone under the age of 18 to start the process, and it was extremely rare for puberty to be halted, something that is allowed and more often t

  23. Last night I dreamt about this (maybe because this thread was the last thing I read before going to bed) and in my dream Obsidian hired "the whole gang" as consultants for their next RPG. You know for the next Pillars game (I feel it will come some day) we should really set up our own website/wiki.

  26. Yeah, although Facebook estimate was "News makes up less than 4% of the content people see in their News Feed." , so they don't see news as something that brings them lots of revenue EDIT: I like that they call it 'News Feed' when 96% content in it is not news

  27. Several people asked themselves a similar question about Tuotilio's Palm DPS and came to the conclusion it was half way between DW Unarmed and Unarmed + (small) shield. That's because the main hand get a huge DPS bonus through DW speed increase. I think this is a reasonable design and should be kept as a reference for all bashing shields. That is what I call the "Tuotilio's DPS ratio" compared to DW Unarmed. Unarmed has approximatively the same damages as a normal speed 1-hander (0,5 higher actually) IMHO the DPS of "Normal 1-hander + Bashing shield" shall be equal to "Tuotilio's DPS
