  1. I agree. It isn't for a sense of accomplishment or anything, I started a PotD because I wanted more challenge. On Hard I never used a scroll or food or laid a trap. Hell, I skipped finding the awesome equipment out there. That told me that Hard didn't require me to use all the game's systems. I wanted to have to think, build well and created a party that isn't niche or abusing some mechanic (actually very different theory of team makeup than I usually see, very much MY creation). The party needs the synergy I created to work on PotD, and from the very minute I started the campaig, I f
  2. In my new run through on PotD detting, my druid uses a war bow, my Cipher uses an Arbelest. The Cipher is a ridiculous damage dealing machine and DR doesn't scare me at all. The druid is more steady, less dramatic, but keeps it going. The above post makes a lot of sense because that is how they are most effectively played, supporting the whole fight strategy. Cipher obviously aims at the highest armored guy and tries to drop his HP massively right off. The Druid cleans up near death guys, or focuses on easy-to-hit weaklings (other archers) while my rogue sneaks over to wipe em out. O
  3. I played on hard, so not sure how if differs, but the only one that was ridiculous to me was trying to beat Thalnos at lv 8...shouldn't have rushed..
  4. My main character was a slave, and the Skaen guy had special dialogue for that and I really kind of wanted to go with the Skaen plan from a roleplaying perspective, but I just couldn't go through with letting the girl be a slave to serve Skaen's purposes, so I released her and killed the Skaen priest as well as her uncle. Now what I did try was to release her AFTER letting her return to her uncle that way I didn't have to kill the Skaen worshipers since I did agree with them in principle, but unfortunately the game didn't allow me to do that. Also for those of you who said that the Skaen p
  5. I find the world to be wonderfully designed, with great balance between the familar, the new, and the "familiaresque," which I think is what is bothering OP. Of course, I am, "that guy," who tries to pronounce the names of all the Spanish named streets and cities in their Spanish/Mexican pronunciation...and am considered a complete outsider by the locals even though I was a local (lol). But what has been said above by some rings true, try to learn the culture and then you will start to recognize the words as not abnormal at all. Sure, maybe this world is similar to past worlds, but it
  6. Well said...lol Fair enough. Being male I can't imagine I have much perspective shift toward noticing the gender bias in video games, but I am sure it is still there.
  7. I just finished my companion based run on hard, and created my party for PotD: Hearth Orlan Skean priest: Hearth Orlan gives 10% higher chance to crit when attacking an enemy who is being targeted by another teammate. On top of that, the baby backstab and +10 accuracy with clubs and stiletto round out this little melee machine. Oh, but that’s just a bonus, he’s still all about spell support. High STR/INT for massive AOE range and duration and high healing (and melee, incidentally, this dude pops weak minions hard). Interdiction will be raised to debuff enemy, and later weaken them which
