  1. If you plan on being any kind of front liner then don't dump CON, there are supposed to be plenty of CON checks as well. If you are tank it has been put forth that you actually do better maxing RES over CON for deflection purposes. I don't know how much more efficient it is. ETA: for tanks* and b/c ambushes, Engagement, and optional permadeath
  2. Have to admit I'm a Lil baffled over this line of discussion. Backers gave to the KS in return for (quite explicitly if I'm to be honest) an old school isometric party-based cRPG, which is exactly what Obsidian is giving them. The only specific promise about release was that it would be out March 26th and it will be. You can't move the goalposts from what was originally promised to whatever you feel like is right, for obvious reasons. They didn't let you do level design so why would they give you reign over any other tasks of development? You (presumably) don't know how to design a game like this which is why so many gave money to Obsidian to do it. They're game developers and this is a stage of development, let them handle it. And in response to whoever it was "only see[ing] the same names on this forum" happy with Obsidian... R u jk? Willful ignorance isn't an argument it's a lifestyle choice. What a weird thing to argue so long and hard about, the game comes out tomorrow. Be happy, take deep breaths.
  3. DL'ed in like ten minutes, but was disappointed to see a placeholder icon instead of the pillars icon on my desktop. Does the icon have to be embargoed?! Anyway, so excite.
  4. Thanks for the vid, I was really just watching to see the Stat effects but they kind of show their own effect. A couple of questions: Worthwhile to lower any stats below base? Con on ranged for instance? I know you can't test every build but any thoughts on the Swift Aim + Gunner Ranger with max dex? (I know you are not big on ranged ranger) And I know you said you would cover it in the next vid and I will wait for that if it's too much trouble but for the love of god can someone please explain to me how interrupt works? _ interrupt CHAR with _ interrupt GEAR vs. _ concentration MOB = _% for interrupt Ty again.
  5. I don't think this is really a NBA crowd but rest assured at least one person got it. Anthony Davis to OKC! ETA: but KD to the Wiz Sure it is. https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/68989-pro-hoops-2k14-2k15/ Leferd is a Sawyer-Lowe propagandist and not to be trusted.

  7. Wild Orlan Ranger, (Lil?) Bripa, with the antelope. He was hunting and wuz bout to shoot the antelope when a huge ol' monster burst out and he kills it, then feels pity and nurses the antelope back to health from where the monster got it. Now he rides the antelope into battle and shoots things. Ranger with arquebus. Bc wild orlan, rujk?
  8. I was like 10 the first time I played FF7 and that was such an amazing experience because it was like a movie or a book I wanted to play all night just to find out what happened. I know jrpgs are the devil around here or whatever. Played pretty much every jrpg to see a western release for 6-8 years probably. The Fire Emblems and Wild Arms and pretty much any Nippon Ichi title. Uh, when I was a kid I got Baldur's Gate and liked it. Playing it now I appreciate it a bit more. Just have always been into swords and sorcery. Being the hero, epic scale, climactic battles, etc. Now I kind of just like fantasy settings for the face they can put on universal issues. Also monsters. I love monsters, monster pseudobiology, monster design, etc. As an adult I just started hating the mostly boring conventions of jrpgs and played mostly 4X or StarCraft/War Craft 3 (like everyone else I had like a 2 year Dota phase when it first started). So Steam. Some witcher, aow3 definitely. I was big into Awesomenauts (and was league 1 tyvm!) And then Divinity Original Sin came out. Blew my mind/devoured my life. So I Google upcoming rpgs after I was done with that. It sent me to this 10 RPGs to watch for in 2014 slideshow, Pillars of Eternity was #8, I googled it and here I am.
  9. Conveniently sidestepped the questions about Josh Sawyer's relation to Rob Lowe that so many in the community have been demanding answers for. First cousin? Second cousin? Brother?! We can hear your cadence sir, and we want answers.
  10. In every instance where this q has been posed to the dev team including this past PAX East panel, the answer has been basically no. I don't know what minute of the panel discussion but I believe someone asks, in the context of Minsc/Edwin the same q and the answer has been no, your companions won't fight to the death. I have never heard a hard no to them leaving your party but I would assume that they probably won't unless you REALLY want them to (kill their family, tell them to leave, try to kill them, etc) Eta: this was in responsee to the will companions leave you thing not the rep thing cuz yeah there is
  11. Ok so did Josh Sawyer grow up in the same area as Rob Lowe? Are they related? Cuz I couldn't put my finger on it but those two dudes have the exact same cadence.
  12. I call for romance threads to be renamed flame wars vol. __ and the actual word "romance" to be filtered to "cucumber" so anyone who reads it can laugh.
  13. As someone playing through BG EE atm, the Neera "romance" is not really a support for the pro romance crowd.
