  1. If you don't want to bother with the combat, you can also just select the charge option at the start to immediately board the enemy ship. You take some damage though, but that hasn't been a big deal for me so far.
  2. The blights are tougher than the damn titan itself. I pulled the titan away, then cleared out the blights later, and they gave me a much harder time. It doesn't help that when telling a party member to leave the sand AoE, my order would get canceled when the damage ticked and I'd have to keep repeating the move order...
  3. I'd love the option to pick a god without being a priest. With how important the gods are to Eora, it seems odd that you need to be a priest to be treated as worshipping one in game.
  4. I think it's a good idea to have some shared talents. They're generic enough that I don't think they should be limited to any specific class. I would like to see some class-specific improved version of these, however. Like the cipher gets a +15 will talent instead of +10, I think that could be expanded to more of the talents. For example, a better fortitude talent for fighters, reflex for rogue, and a better hp talent for barbarians? The weapon style talents seem to work for both melee and ranged, so if you're using an arquebus, you could pick up the two handed style for a damage b
  5. I think this is actually the single biggest issue I have with the beta at the moment. I didn't make my main character a wizard, but one of my party member's is, and it just feels terribly ineffective. Even if the long cast spells had effects worth the duration (they don't right now), it wouldn't really be fun to play a wizard if you can only get 2 spells off in an encounter. The speed of wizards felt reasonable in PoE 1. Yeah there were some silly combinations you could pull off, but I don't think that means most wizard spells should have such a ponderous casting time for such marginal eff
  6. Huh... I got the new portraits available, but the merchant isn't showing up. That's kind of weird. Reinstalling the Deadfire pack worked, it just seems weird that I was only getting some of the features. Also right now there's a hilarious glitch where if you select "bind soul" while shopping, you can bind the Crossbow to the merchant!
  7. Well, I don't think there's really a solution that makes everyone happy. PoE solved the biggest issue I personally had with the attribute systems of most games: a large number of stats that are useless for most builds. For example, let's say a system only has Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence. Strength increases damage with melee weapons, dexterity increases damage with ranged weapons, and intelligence increases damage with magic. Some people would have no problem with a system like that; it's simple, and straight to the point. I don't like systems like that because as a wizard, I could sa
  8. Weird gun spark thing: https://twitter.com/jesawyer/status/928394240484286465?s=17
  9. I'm wondering how good an implement focused wizard/ranger (sharpshooter?) would be. Blast with driving flight could be fun.
  10. Maybe she can fire twice as far as long as the target is near her bird... sort of like the bird is her spotter or something.
  11. Huh, I didn't realize pathfinding was such a big issues on the game. I have nearly 200 hours logged and have actually never noticed any significant problems with it o_o As for my most requested feature: companions with a backbone! Characters like Eder, Pallagina, and Sagani shouldn't stay in your party if you go around murdering random people, for example.
  12. I think the most I've ever been (pleasantly) surprised by the game was when this completely random diving helmet you find ends up saving your character's life at the end of WM2. Up until it mentioned I grabbed the helmet, I thought for sure it would be the end of my character. My favorite encounter has to be the battle of Yenwood, where you fight to control your stronghold. The 3.0 update in general solved, like, 70% of the issues I had with the stronghold system. The end of the questline was phenomenal, and even if it wasn't particularly challenging, it was amazing seeing around 4 times m
  13. Any advice on getting the blade unlocked without killing friendly NPCs? I think I've killed every deer in the game already, and I'm only at 300ish/1500
  14. Oh my god. A soulbound weapon whose upgrade requirement is killing backer NPCs. I imagine a number of people will be very happy with this.
  15. Holy crap, did everyone see the beta update? Lots of further cipher changes. Focus generation increased by 40%, and a bunch of cast time reductions, status effect duration increases, and base damage increases. I like these changes paired with the nerf to initial focus. It makes the effects harder to use at the start of combat, but rewards keeping your cipher alive and generating damage.
  16. Were quest exp rewards lowered this patch? I was working on a document to figure out the value of each quest level and type (minor/normal/major), and after the beta suddenly nothing matches up.
  17. How does PoE limit your gameplay choices more than the Baldur's Gate series? In BG2, I played a mage killer fighter which ended up being absolutely awful... late game he basically just waited around while my mages had to repeatedly dispel all the arbitrary physical immunity buffs that seemingly every enemy had. I've run three characters through PoE, 2 of them very unoptimized, and got through just fine without feeling useless.
  18. It's possible we won't be able to craft legendary weapons (or if we can, it's a one time thing), and will instead can only find them as loot. Keep in mind, there are only enough ingredients in the entire world to enchant 3 superb weapons and 2 superb armors. Unless, of course, WM2 adds new superb recipes or more ingredients.
  19. I'll check that out, thanks! Edit: Okay, so the whole thing disunity is rather technical, with batch files and jar executables and whatnot. I'm not computer-savvy at all, so I think I'll leave this to more qualified people.
  20. Anyone know of any good methods for getting the icons for new abilities/items? I'd like to add images for the new content in White Marches, but I'd rather not upload screen shots of the icons. I checked the data files, but the only usable images I found were character portraits.
  21. I like how Hiravias sort of notices Grieving Mother. You can ask him about her, and they actually have a banter conversation together.
  22. If you're doing it for the challenge hire your own priest at a tavern. Durance wastes a lot of his points in resolve, anyway.
