  1. No, it's good and actually amazing and fun to see how far you can push yourself even on PotD with 3 casters (mage druid priest) even before level 11. I usually clear dungeons with one rest only or no rest.
  2. No, it's onky related to your mechanics skill when in stealth mode. No influence of perception!
  3. A rumor I just started says that if you very quicky change between the Black cat, the Orange Tabby and the Obsidian wurm so that all three of them are briefly on the screen at the same time, an easter egg triggers and they do something biological and after three turns the Black cat will give birth to a hamster named Boo...
  4. I'm a hardcore BG veteran with hundreds of hours sunk into the game and I like PoE - more so than Wasteland 2 in fact but I know I will never spend as much time on it as with BG2. BG1 yes, but not 2
  5. Btw, for all those old school fans who don't know the site: absolute must read is http://crpgaddict.blogspot.de which is documenting playthrough of all RPGs ever commercially released.
  6. I don't know you, but if I did you'd be dead to me. You should be ashamed. And just to make sure we're clear here: Not "dead" in the PST-just-get-off-your-slab-say-hi-to-Morte-then-we-start-again-type-dead but the BG-God-of-Murder-sucks-your-soul-to-the-Abyss-never-to-be-seen-again-variety.
  7. Hard to compare against real old school games (I started with Bards Tale I on a C64) but if we're talking modern oldish school I'd rank it PST >> BG2 > ToE = PoE > NWN 2 > BG 1 at least for 1-2 playthroughs to explore the companions and try out all the classes (plus maybe a solo afterwards). But even during my second time around I find very few new things / surprised in features, quests etc. Simply cannot compare to BG 2 from a replayability aspect.
  8. Amost through second time, not a single crash or story breaking bug. A few graphic glitches, e.g. I once had an animat appearing at the same spot on every map, started calling him Forest, but all those go away aftera reload. Also no scaling or similar problems at 2800 resolution (imac 27"). Very fast patching and overall amazing maturity and response especially compared to BGII EE where it took almost a year for the first patch to come out.
  9. Absolutely, prevents that stupid rush to get them all at level 3 before they mess things up
  10. Exactly, blunderbuss is the weapon of choice for his one, at least till patch 1.05
  11. Generally go for crowd control over damage, especially confuse / paralyze / blind and then some nukers for finishing things off. 4 guys fighting each other confused is worth more than a fireball...
  12. OK, finally got carnage to proc and things seem a bit more manageable now that I have reached indoor areas. But it seems you really need a reach weapon in the second row, generic two hander not enough. Does the DR bypass of an estoc and other weapon modifiers get applied to carnage or is it flat damage?
