  1. Curious to know if lore factors were considered during the choice of new keywords. Some consequences like keybreaker scepter allowing to reflect a skaens finishing blow raise an eyebrow, although I can see an argument as to why it might be justifiable lore-wise. Just one example. I know this board generally favors gameplay considerations over in-universe consistency, but I personally don't believe Obsidians choices were all completely random or mistakes (although some clearly were). If a spell / ability can never benefit from any +PL due to faulty keywords, it's bad, sure. But if new interactions created by adding keywords don't make sense, it's also bad, imho. I don't think there's a perfect answer or that Obsidians approach was 100% consistent either, but I'm interested to know if anyone else shares this concern.
  2. This is the type of feature that belongs in a mod but not in the game, for lore reasons.
  3. Actually unlike other priests xoti has some high impact at low levels in the form of blessed harvest
  4. great passives when multi classed and great actives when single carnage is inconsequential but that's ok
  5. bellower + sasha scimitar + all the "on empower" gear from FS + every source of PL you can grab is funny if you wanna see big numbers
  6. You might wanna consider item acquisition order, in particular for soulbound items (you wont level certain items if you have no content to play after acquiring them). Of course, you'd have to read spoilers.
  7. I love doing this with him, it's dumb but it works extremely well: fighter regen + ring of regen + ring of greater regen + troll cape + troll belt + whiteleaf That + resistance to every affliction through fighter passives and items, the 30% medium shield resistance, and the rogue reflex and his hp is permanently stuck to max. With a sabre or warhammer and deathblows he can also do respectable dmg. As far as making things stick, it works this way in my experience: fighter-type enemies never disengage, rogue/barb-type enemies will disengage to pursue low hp or low armor targets. There's nothing you can do to force rogue-type enemies to stay stuck to a tank, ie. no deterrence, only punishment. Just focus them with your dps/cc. The point of a tank is to lock down the pala/fighter types and bosses.
  8. There are a lot of synergies you can compound when multiclassing him, but they take a while to realize barb + chanter + morningstar modal + chant that debuffs might/weakens + brute force + barbaric blow + bloody slaughter + eld nary is pretty good
  9. The math doesnt work that way, look up "inversion", for example here. https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/pc/227477-pillars-of-eternity-ii-deadfire/faqs/76599/inversions base roll : 14.6 inversion of negative mod: 1-1/(1-.75) = -3 addition of all mods: .03+.2+.5+.15-3 = -2.12 inversion of final mod, for negative result: 1/(1+2.12) = 0.3205 final result: 14.6*.3205 = 4.679 = 4.7
  10. The objectively best part has to be fort deadlight. That is the peak rpg experience in terms of approaches, choices, reactivity, freedom. My favorite is the bridge in BoW. Very ambitious to decide to present such an iconic moment of the lore and it was well executed. Reassured me that there was talent left at Obsidian
  11. Yeah, removing the bonus acc from spells made this even worse. The dps provided by spells isnt high enough to justify using limited casts on them rather than improving infinite auto attacks by casting debuffs instead, especially when enemy vulnerabilities and weaknesses are flattened by the potd bonuses. Whenever you can do decent damage with a spell, the fight usually didnt matter anyway.
  12. chanter is always great to have in the fights that matter, but having that foe aoe chill fog as early as possible is so good it's hard to pass
  13. these early encounters are designed to teach you non lethal ways goretti street is cleared after dealing with the mob boss, diplomatically or no, the other thugs will disappear upon returning to the area the excavation mobs are placed in such a way that you can sneak past them into the ruins, deal with the adra pillar and come out and they'll be gone. The fights inside the ruins are either sneakable through or doable by a party of 3 with proper tactics
