  1. This happened to me but I just loaded a previous save and did some sidequests and Byzantium that raised my rep. It only took like one or two quests. I think one involved marking rats in the sewer? It was really easy. After I raised my rep a little bit, I then proceeded with the main quests that dropped my rep but not low enough to be kill on sight. So, I think your solution is to load a previous save and be careful what you choose going forward.
  2. Companion abilities are a thing? I went through the whole game one-shotting everything on my 1h melee build, so I honestly didn't know they had abilities.
  3. Are you talking about the giant robot? I don't know its name. But you have to defeat it before going in to confront Rockwell. I was a straight 1h melee build so I merced that robot really, really fast. Thanks to using time dilation. I just started a new playthrough with a handgun build and I'm finding the game a bit more challenging. I'm starting to think melee is OP. So, your difficulties might depend on your build.
  4. I haven't posted on this forum since probably 2004ish, around the time KOTOR 2 came out. But I had to reach out to say thank you so much for an amazing game. TOW was an old-fashioned RPG experience and it made me miss the days when this was how games were. No microtransactions, no paper-thin plot with generic and stock characters. This was story telling with great world building and three dimensional characters to live in that world. I'm actually going to playthrough it again! I haven't said that about a game in years. These days, most video games are one and done. But The Outer Worlds actually makes me want to playthrough it again, multiple times. Just like in the "old days". Anyway, just had to say something. Thanks again for taking me back to the games I love.
  5. BioWare developers are ****. True story.
  6. I uninstalled the game. Thanks for all the advice, I certainly used it. I turned Power Attack off, bought some healing pots and put the druid in my party. None of it worked I even tried the trick of running back down to the first floor. It worked one time, but on the second time it said I had to gather my party before venturing forth. Uh...my party was dead. So it came down to me and one rogue in the doorway who was near death. He dodged six consecutive times and killed me. The game got a prompt uninstall after that. Look, video games are supposed to be fun. They may be annoying at times, but they are not supposed to be so frustrating that it actually makes you angry. And if you're not having fun, don't play it. I was an ardent defender of Obsidian after the whole KOTOR2 debacle. If the search function on this forum goes back far enough, you can see my posts. I pointed the finger directly at LA for forcing them to rush out an unfinished product. I had heard some pretty harsh reviews from gamers about NWN2. I'll admit I wasn't too eager to play it, which is why I waited for so long before finally giving it a shot. But I see now why this game is so scorned and ridiculed. It is, very simply, full of fail. Of epic porportions. I don't care how smooth the game runs and how much better it playes if you have the expansions, if you can't play the game smoothly or if the gameplay is sucky on its initial release, then the expansions aren't worth buying. Say what you want about the original NWN, but just about everyone that played it could get through it. I don't recall a single level in that game that made me hate BioWare the way that NWN2 has made me hate Obsidian now. It's to the point where I doubt I'll even buy Alpha Protocol. Despite their storied past at developing PS:T and all that, these guys can't design a game to save their lives today. I see now KOTOR2's failure was Obsidian's. It is clear after playing NWN2. And no way in Hades I'm going to subject myself to more frustration in that game, where the mobs will be unkillable, the game will be buggy, and your skills don't work properly. I mean, what is this? Bethesda? So, anyway, thanks for the feedback and advice. But about the only good thing that I'll get out of NWN2 is the store credit for taking it back. PS. Here's a final screenshot for posterity. Looked like it was going pretty well, right? Notice all the misses. Literally about five seconds later, we were all dead.
  7. Here's an example of what I'm talking about. It only shows two misses, but there was upwards of about six or seven misses in a row. And the damage these rogues are doing to my party while dodging every single attack is just beyond lame.
  8. I know I'm like three years late, but I just picked up a copy of NWN2 to play. I don't have any of the expansions yet. Just the OC. And I'm seriously ready to quit the game and take it back. I rolled an Aasimar Paladin and find the class and the game in general extremely frustrating. I'm only about halfway through the game. I'm in Neverwinter and trying to find this NPC named Fihelis to take back to the City Watch. So I'm making my way through his estate, and around almost every corner are stealthed rogues ready to gank. They are all dual wielding and (seriously) dodge EVERY SINGLE MELEE SWING. Every. Single. One. Dead serious. At the same time, the do SERIOUS damage to you and your party. It's so demoralizing. Seriously, what the hell? Paladin must be the absolute weakest class in this game. It...can't...hit...for...anything. What the hell am I missing? When I rolled the character, I chose recommend for my stats because I wasn't sure which stats a paladin should favor. So, in other words, I didn't monkey around with my stats or anything. I did what the game told me to do, and it just straight up stinks. I should've gone with my instinct and rolled a cleric. That's the class I played in SoU and HotU and it was freaking amazing at epic levels. But on one of my playthroughs of the original NWN, I played a paladin and I don't nearly remember it sucking this bad. If it did, I wouldn't have played through the game as one. The only reason I made it this far in NWN2 is because of Khelgar and Qara. They do awesome melee and caster damage respectively. If not for them, I'd have quit a long time ago. Seriously, should I just reroll or is the game this lame?
  9. It's a picture, of a game. Good job! Could use some more anti-aliasing, though... Thanks. But anti what?
  10. Not sure if this is the right thread to post this (I think there was a screenshot thread somewhere?) but I'm playing both AoC and WAR right now. Not seriously, but messing around in both games. As well as LOTRO and a bit of WoW. But AoC has really captured my attention because of how gorgeous it is. The gameplay itself leaves a little to be desired, but graphics are just stunning.
  11. Well, I'm still shopping around a bit, but close to buying it. With Alienware, I'm mostly paying for the name, so I'm aware of that. I actually found another model that will cost about $1600. [1] Aurora
  12. They are charging me quite a bit for this, but I just wanted some opinions on the below specs. Will this be sufficient for PC gaming? 1] Area-51
  13. I've actually considered giving WoW another shot because of this, and how I keep hearig that casual gamers are having a blast playing it. Well, that and Jeff Kaplan, the lead designer, is gone now. I really didn't like the direction he took the game in. With a new guy or gal in his spot, maybe WoW will return to its roots of being a PvE game first, with PvP mini-games acting as both a different aspect for players to explore and experience and as an alternative form of end-game. Get away from this e-sport crap.
