  1. You need a priest for this. And it doesn't work against debuffing foes. Priest = win almost by itself in this situation anyway (BDD + SoT + whatever source of Brillant, such as Robe of the Weyc)
  2. Although I agree with the opinion that Psion is not worth considering without Community Patch, I think that people to to overvalue "best case scenario" when choosing a build. Even Boeroer do this by repeatedly posting videos about his Dual Mortars vs packed Rotten Zombies . Psion has the most stable floor value of all Ciphers when you face foes that can't be hit or reliably or aren't good targets for Deception spells.
  3. Some status have child effects. But I mixed status and attacks indeed. I had this to my own list of changes to be made. I might start my own balance mod from the Community Patch basis, but don't be too hurry for the release Crushing blow needed a rework anyway.
  4. What is a se entry ? Child effect in the game data file ? Does it mean there is no extra crit damage in the regular crushing blow ?
  5. Bellower works with SoT ? Good to know. I don't remember the bounce period of Eld Nary's. That could easily be checked anyway, since the bounce period appears in the game's file. It might indeed be a pb only for SC. I think that additional jumps are more interesting for MC than for SC, since the upgrade already bounce so much that the +5-7 PL would proportionally matter less. Eventually, it might be worth considering modding bellower bonus duration.
  6. It also depends on which PoE version you've played. In PoE1, pets were greatly improved since version 2.0. So maybe your experience date back from this time and this is the reason you found it weak. I don't remember having troubles to keep pet alive since this time, given you shouldn't play it as a tank (more offtank or flanker).
  7. The problem is that Megabosses require specific way to be killed and are not fit to adapt other megaboss playstyle. Hauni O Whe will ultimately prevail against everything cause it will simply rebuild itself when split. Belranga has too high defenses, so will prevail against anything else than Hauni O Whe. Unless of course if her minions are spawned too. Dorudugan brute strength can't do that much agiant the 2 previous special defenses. Not 100% sure they can match its self-heal. Might lead to a draw vs Hauni O Whe and ultimately Victory vs Belranga. Auranic won't do much even if spawned with sigils cause her Crowd Control effects won't help much versus other megaboss.
  8. Hijacking this old thread with a random though about tank : A couple of days ago, I faced Huani O Whe and I had to choose a party member to lure away one of the Gigantic Black Ooze. I ended up using my Nalzpaca/Transcendant, mostly because his Nalzpaca side was able to spam the twins who did the actual tanking. Drugs, Food and item provided enough regeneration for the couple of ranged attacks he suffered. I didn't pick my Herald cause she has to remain within the party to help everybody regenerate. It seems that there isn't lots of class option for infinite regeneration which is necessary at some point for a self-sustainable tank. Herald seems the best choice here, but ironically uses a party-wide ability for this purpose. Other than that, it seems trick such as summons are actually better than doing the tanking by oneself. It really feels weird that fighter isn't that much suited for the role, but this is mostly because constant recovery has a limited duration. Limited duration hurts for a few fights, but these are arguably the fights where Tanks are the most needed. The question here is : should constant recovery have been... well... constant ? (maybe with lower base number though)
  9. Pillars of Eternity 3 : Arcanum of Steamwork and Animancy Obscura
  10. Problem is that the game is currently balanced around RTwP. TB isn't bad but it is mostly meant as a bonus. Since the TB Crowd is largeur, I think they should go this route from a sales perspective. Too Bad TB wasn't an ATB so both systems would be close enough to maintain TB and RTwP.
  11. Or Pillars of Empire, the New Microbsidian game. I would pick the Rautai, they are a powerful Gunpowder Civ. Have you ever dream of wololoing with a Cipher Rush ?
