  1. From the description it seems reviving command is supposed to drop the character down half the regained health after some period, however it is killing my full health characters after a short period.
  2. It can't possibly be designed. I had to use a mod to go back to PoE 1 scaling to get rid of having +4 disposition in almost everything.
  3. A third of the people on the forums that saw and could be bothered to reply to that poll, not the entire playerbase. We don't have any idea of what the actual numbers are. OBS might, if they get that sort of telemetry. (I know Paradox has some idea of the stats for their games, but even then, they're steam only). We don't know - unless anyone does and would like to bring some statistics to the table - for example, how many copies PoE2 has thus far sold/backed verses how many folk posted in that thread. The truth is that you are going to get a much larger proportion of PotD-players on the forums because a) PotD is not satisfactory yet and b) by their very nature PotD fans are going to be those that are naturally more keen (and thus inclined to care and voice discontent) than the average player. (Heck, all of us that can be arsed to post stuff on the forums are). So it is more than likely that, out of the number of responders to that polls, the numbers are disproportional to the overall number of players. How much? I have honestly not idea. It might be a lot lower. It might be a lot higher (though that seems less likely). But let's not assume that is an entirely reliable figure, given there is a fair amount of selection bias. All we know is that OBS is working on the problem and they'll get to it. After all, making the hardest difficulty actually hard (not just lazy-hard with increased monster stats, like the tedium of Heart of Winter in IWD2 (I got bored after the first part and gave up)) is going to require more thought - and honestly, the extra eyes of the mechanics optimisers that will see things that the Devs won't - to get balanced right. I wouldn't think it is even reasonably possible without a good couple of iterative goes at it. Obsidian said it is the least played difficulty setting, which I'm assuming is why they threw it down the line in their priorities.
  4. Yeah I don't even think I've done anything cruel and I have Eder telling me I'm not a nice person and NPCs telling me not to get high and mighty because I'm a jerk. I have everything maxed except aggressive/cruel/shady which are at two. I'm only level 10. I'm sure they'll all be maxed soon.
  5. I still end up with the created history of Eder being mayor of him insisting he went home to his parents.
  6. I rarely swap off my main for all the little fights, and if I take too long a blink she's wasted half her spells. I manually turned off her AI and kept the others' on, but it would be nice to be able to swap when necessary without having to either turn back on/off her AI every time or micromanage every tiny fight.
  7. Whaaaaat. Okay, I'm perfectly fine with Eder not being an option for the Watcher, but THIS (if true) really does seem like trolling on the devs' part. What the heck. It's in the game data! I dunno the rules on image linking on this forum, but I can screenshot all the Eder/Iselmyr stuff and chuck it in an Imgur gallery or give you the directions to the data file itself for you to read if you need the proof. Ok can I just say that while that sounds super stupid my new POE II goal is to set up Eder and Iselmyr while romancing Aloth. Challenge mode engage.
  8. Hotfix could be out next Tuesday if i am not mistaken. So its not in fact Hotfix . They just renamed 1st patch to silence critics. Well what's just nice Yeah that was when they already said the 1st patch was happening. Rude to lie. Better to just say a hotfix would cause more problems than it's worth
  9. While I certainly agree in general that not including romances is not a slap in the face, this particular romance was the most asked for. Making it one of the only two that is not available is a poor reading of their playerbase at the least. This is especially true since as mentioned his reasoning is he's not in the right mindspace right now, which is clearly an excuse on the character's part/writers not being able to come up with a better reason seeing as he gets with apparently another party member. It's super weird to take one of the most requested romances and say not only can you not romance them, but this npc can.
  10. This is one of the clunkiest things I consistently see with game romances IMO. Sometimes it's done well in a believable way (like Aveline in DA2 - she is just *so* oblivious), but when an NPC's sexuality and general interest in relationships is established in game, and they turn the PC down for nebulous "you're like a brother to me" reasons, it kind of comes off as arbitrary dev "because we don't wanna" reasons. In that case, I tend to prefer that the flirt options just aren't even there for that character. It does seem a bit weird, especially seeing as he was the favorite companion from the first game according to their little survey thing. Also because he's always the one who looks out for you rather than giving you the same "omg you crazy person stop staring into space." Maybe that is what they meant by nuanced? That such a relationship can just be platonic. Still, I want to kick whoever made that decision. Especially after making this. I mean come on Obsidian.
  11. That video is from when they were on the verge of bankruptcy which is no longer true. It feels like they didn't even play their own game for 15 minutes as the save game import/create history problems seem to be universal. How did they not notice them when you only have to play that long to hit two of them?
  12. There are three dlc that are coming out over the course of the summer/fall. There is nothing now dlc wise except the free critical role pac
  13. C'est tres bizarre parce que beaucoup d'erreurs sont correct avec google, mais avec Obsidian, non.
  14. I would guess that the game is reading it as you set the story manually, hence the option to ask who he is. Also I got that response when I said something about Berath I think. I never asked who he was.
  15. I don't know that the creator will fix it. People turned to the creator to fix the Eder problem and that didn't do anything different. Also man I heard Vela had problems but god choice too? I feel like they didn't think this import/creator thing out.
  16. Yeah I hope this isn't a problem with other things too and this is just early enough and obvious enough that it's what all of us noticed.
  17. Weird because I don't have the dlc listed as downloaded. Gah.
  18. When patch notes are released anyone know where we'll be able to find them? Like I know steam downloaded a 1.9GB file an hour or two ago but I can't find any notes as to what it is. I haven't started playing because everyone's saying it's buggy and I'd like to be able to keep up on things.
  19. I would prefer it the other way around since it is supposed to be for the community, but I had to enter in the codes myself. Only then did things unlock.
  20. But what if he ever becomes not a statue? Can I keep boning him then? And anathanielh, that Steward romance
  21. I know absolutely nothing about what you are talking about But I am going to ask questions to learn more. That's not falling on a LGBTQ spectrum is it? Like I would be straight but only interested in sex. Or homosexual but only interested in romance. That's not my sexuality it's more like a behavioral choice? Like just to me it seems like aromantic is code for someone with a form of sex addiction. And if not how would you distinguish between sex addiction and aromantic? What? Oh, no. You're jumping to pretty much the exact opposite end of things. Someone who's asexual doesn't have interest in sex. Generally when people use 'aromantic' they mean someone who isn't interested in sex OR romance. No dates or late nights cuddling on the couch or whatever, but also not mindless boning. They've friendzoned the world (if they're social) or tend to be work/project focused (if they're not) Think of it as more like the vegan/vegetarian spectrum. One is excluding more things than the other. Actually, there ARE people who are aromantic but not asexual, just like there are people who are asexual but not aromantic. (As well as people who are both, of course.) Sure. But, but -generally- when the topic comes up, they're connected. Aromantic sex often just gets a shrug and 'Eh, college.' Not everywhere of course, and it isn't universally true, but I've meet a lot of people who think avoiding casual hook-ups is aberrant behavior. It's certainly well represented in tv and media. And politics of course, with those darn kids and their lack of morals destroying the country. Or some nonsense like that. That isn't what being aromantic is. It's looking at everyone and feeling no romantic attraction (so like they're cute/handsome/sexy, I'd want to hold hand with them, etc). Adding the sexual means, but still having sexual attraction (I know I only want to have sex with x gender). Never met someone like that before though. Romantic asexual yes, aromantic sexual no.
  22. Yay! I think they have officially de-pudgy faced everyone now.
