  1. I read everything, literally everything in the game that's presented before me, not just all the dialog, every book, every bestiary entry, everything. I had no idea I was joining the Crucible Knights when I started working with them. I just kept going on what felt like a sidequest thread. Now you're saying I've actually joined the Crucible Knights as what, a member? I don't recall ever agreeing to that, or getting any sort of ceremony or anything indicating that was now the case. And I know it's certainly not because of my reading comprehension. I haven't really seen it im
  2. This is just an idea that struck me, like a thrown tomato. What if camping supplies, instead of being completely consumed as soon as you use them (I don't know anyone who throws away their bedroll and pots after one use), actually allowed you to set up an actual campsite? The campsite would remain at that map permanently, and could be treated like a makeshift inn, although without the bonuses, obviously. Also, only one allowed per map. You would have to severely reduce the number of camping supplies available throughout the game, of course, otherwise every map would wind up with its
  3. I'd also like to see the lab, fountain and kitchen in the lower floor of Brighthollow be something besides just cosmetic.
  4. I too agree that each class needs some kind of resource. The best classes are the ones that are built around unique mechanics: Cipher and Chanter rule the heap, with the ability to alter the entire battlefield with a single cast, but which require buildup (either generated by hitting, with the Cipher, or over time, with the Chanter) to use those abilities. Monk is also a great idea, once again being based on a resource built up through gameplay. Barbarian is almost there, with a very well-defined role, but no particular mechanic unique to it. They could give the Wizard a mana resource,
  5. I thought the same thing. I expected those bonuses from repairing all those buildings to stack. "Oh cool," I thought, as I shelled out thousands of copper and waited weeks (of in-game time) to put up several buildings with bonuses I particularly wanted, "once I get the whole placed fixed up, I can rest there and get a +1 to everything." ... except no. The hedge maze or woodland paths or whatever it is gives you a +1 to, um, might and survival, I think? It's the only multi-bonus in the entire stronghold, everything else is piecemeal single stat buffs. For Woedica's sake, spending the ni
  6. Give me a few days' time and I can make one. Been planning to make a fire godlike portrait anyway. What base race? Can't tell if he's an aumaua or human.
  7. I think you should just play the game. I've encountered no bugs that were game-breaking or, frankly, even noticeable.
  8. ^Faulty English. Assumes present tense. And misses the point. Edit: And ends with a lie (I seriously doubt you're curious, since your first post on this thread was a blanket dismissal of all the critics, and their viewpoints, and their experiences) Berath's balls, you are a pedant aren't you. Also, you'll notice I never made any personal attacks in my posts, the way you just did. Argumentum ad hominem is useful in one way, though; it publicly demonstrates whom to ignore in the future.
  9. So how did you do fights like the first level of the lighthouse in Ondra's Gift? Or any fight then? How do you 'tank and spank' when enemies come at you from different directions and don't attack the 'tank'? I'm really curious because I find quite a few fights challenging and satisfying when I eventually win. What are these people who complain the game is too easy etc doing differently, or just doing, that makes it so easy? What am I not doing that I should be? I'm with you, philby. I find the game enjoyable, and fairly often challenging as well. You and I must be playing
  10. No, my stance is not "It's not D&D, therefore it's awesome", that's just an advantage to having an original IP. If PoE were a D&D game, I'm sure I'd enjoy it, since I enjoyed Planescape:Torment so much it's still my favorite computer game ever made. My point was that not being tied to an existing (and fairly kludgy) RPG system is an advantage, because it allows Obsidian to come up with something new and original. That people can't seem to separate themselves from the old games that PoE pays homage to but is not based on is not Obsidian's fault. I accept the game for what it is... a
  11. Engagement is not "the entire problem with this combat system". I agree it's not utilized to its full effect, but at the same time, it's a core mechanic of this game's combat system. If you feel like Engagement fundamentally breaks the combat in this game, it's because you're trying to play another game, not this one. Free your mind and let go of the past, accept the mechanics and figure out ways to use them, and things will get a lot more enjoyable.
