  1. As the title says.


    I played the game as soon as it was out, but i uninstalled it after only a few days.


    The reason? Even on PoTD the game was disappointingly easy.



    So, some months have passed. We reached patch 2.0.


    How is the game now ?


    Should i give it a try or is it still the same as before?



    ...it's just great that i bought a game that requires months of patches before being enjoyable...

  2. Ok, first of all thank you.


    Now, i have to ask you another thing related to this. The Obsidian site told me :



    This is the "season pass" for all downloadable content being released for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, which includes the Beast of Winter, Seeker, Slayer, Survivor, and The Forgotten Sanctum content packs!

    Note: Keys redeemed prior to release of the DLC packs may not appear on your platform of choice. Once the DLC is released, it will appear.""""



    I redeemed the key on GOG, used it, and now i have the Beast of Winter DLC.


    But the other ones, from " Seeker " to " Forgotten Sanctum " will appear by themselves in my GOG once each of them is released, or each of them will appear in my Obsidian account as a redeemable key, like i did just now for this DLC ?

  3. Druid.


    I just discovered that my warrior / druid can with 21 INT can morph not only 1 time.


    1 time for each animal form.


    ... so i have a druid / warrior with nice life points, able to take a small beating without dieing.


    But it does not end here. This druid also, thanks to the cheese , can morph for more or less 34 seconds in each kind of animal form. 5 animal forms, meaning a total of 34 * 5 seconds of animal form per fight.




    Next time i know how to cheese the game.


    I will do a party of 5 Warrior / Druids.


    2 with ranged weapons, 1 that cast spells, the other 3 instead will keep morphing all the time in order to melee the enemyes.


    Sure win.

  4. Oh, sorry about that.


    My monk in easy fights simply is a melee fighter.


    Else, i use her to go and destroy the enemy mages / archers, with the support of my ranged archer and druid.


    Priests are very nice, but i find them not essential. In fact, even if they makes your life easyer, i greatly dislike that class.


    CC is critic ?


    If so, yes. I prefer dealing damage and doing teamwork to destoy my foes, even if it takes more time.


    I use barbarian in multiclass because of frenzy mainly, but also because of the bonus to life points on level up.


    Oh, i instead prefer the teamwork. Sure some characters works well alone, but my way of playing PoE is this one. Work togheter and win all fights. Sure, i have made some plan B.


    For example, archer and druid can work as a separate party.


    The idea is that i make the archer run away and fight in distance, while the druid / warrior cast on himself a healing over tiome spell + the heal over time bonus of warrior class + metamorph in cat form.



    Anyway, as an America, localization is not something that affects me, but I've heard the Italian is bad.


    Yep, native italian here.

    Italian is traslated badly.


    1- Some things are missing, like the description of Perception attribute


    2- I have lost count of how much times my female main character is considered a male by both people and the narrator.


    Point 2 especially breaks the immersion, but there is nothing we can do.

  6. The language spoken by people like Palegina or Governor Clario.


    I have always found it entertaining that it is more or less 25% latin (Palegina's Verus, that mean true in latin) and 75% italian with usually a letter or 2 changed in order to make it seems a different language.


    It's nice to keep seeing a tribute to my native language in this game :grin:



    (Most recent example : when you clear a certain mission, Clario will say "perfect" in Valian dialect. It is " Belfetto " . In italian, perfect is " Perfetto ", and it is pronunced exactly like Clario do. But with a P and a R instead of a B and L)

  7. Hello,

    as the title says, i have started a few days ago a blind run of this game on Path of the Damned.


    Why? Because i have already cleared PoE 1 on PoTD many times, so i think i have what it takes to clear PoE 2 for the very first time on the highest difficulty.


    But the problem lies in this simple fact. I have no idea what awaits me in the future, this time. (While on PoE 1 i started PoTD only after i cleared the game on hard...)


    So, let me show you my party members.


    I hope you could give me tips or suggestions, if in your opinion my party is not suited for a PoE 2 PoTD run.




    1- Eder. Warrior single class


    I use him as a tank focused on crowd control , not as a damage dealer.


    Meaning that i gave him Defender, Sword and Shield Style. And the best Armour and Shields.




    2- Amaleari, Multiclass Barbarian / Ranger.


    I use her as my main Archer. (Barbarian in order to give her more life points per level, and the trademark barbarian buff skill for higher damage and attack speed for a short time)


    Also, she goes without an armour because she needs to be fast.


    Her stats are:


    Level 3 , 54 life points


    Str 19

    Cos 5

    Dex 17

    Per 18

    Int 15

    Will 5




    3- Ayrn, Multiclass Paladin / Barbarian.


    She is my main damage dealer. Dual whield a Mace and a Sword in order to target all kind of weaknesses ( slashing, piercing, crushing )


    Paladin for her skills. Barbarian for more life points, trademark barbarian starting buff, and the passive ability to hit more that 1 enemy at the same time.


    Level 2 , 82 life points


    Str 18

    Cos 18

    Dex 18

    Per 10

    Int 4

    Will 10




    4- Frejya, pale elf Monk single class.


    Level 2 , 71 life points


    Str 19

    Cos 16

    Dex 14

    Per 10

    Int 6

    Will 3




    5- Serena, Multiclass Druid / Warrior. Moon Godlike. Ranged with 2 guns.


    No armour, because i need her to be fast.


    Multiclassed as a warrior for more life points per level and because warriors ability + high Int for the druid are useful ( for example, innate heal is 6 life points for more than 60 seconds ).


    I use her as :


    A- an healer, thanks to druid skills.


    B- A body guard for my main character, the barbarian archer.


    C- A glass cannon to eradicate annoying or dangerous ranged monsters.


    Point B and C means that she, having 20 Int, can morph for a long time into cat form. Run into the monsters and maim them in a short time.


    Her stats are :


    Level 1 , 56 life points


    Str 18

    Cos 17

    Dex 10

    Per 10

    Int 21

    Will 3




    Notice that for the stat points of my party i added also the stats from items. That's because i'm so early in the game that my " items " are like only 1 or 2. Meaning, mostly of the stats that i wrote are Base Stats, not Base + item stats.




    Party formation :


    Front row is Eder and my Paladin/Barbarian dual whielding mace/sword


    Behind is the Monk


    Even more behind there are:


    1- my Barbarian Archer


    2-her wolf pet (pointless. I use it to block monsters that try to attack my archer)


    3- The healer/bodyguard druid with 2 guns, with 18 STR and ready to morph in cat form to protect the archer






    So, what do you think of my party ?


    Could it works or will i be in trouble later in the game ?



    Critical weakness of my party that i'm aware of are 2.


    1- All have low Will, so my party will suffer from mental attacks like charms.


    2- Druid and archer are more or less naked. These 2 girls may have some bonus of life points thanks to their multiclass ( barbarian and warrior), but i am sacrificing their defense in order to make them more fast.

  8. As the title says. I have no words to express my disappointment.


    1- Perception in starting screen has no description


    2- The main character is considered as a male during all the dialogs of the game. Or at least for a good part of the beginning


    3- Overhall, it feel like a rushed traslation. Especially during the character creation. 



    Please, fix it. Especially point 2, because the gameplay is ridiculous.


    The characters of the game talk to my female character as if she is a " he ". (I really hope it is not going to be like this in all the game)

  9. As the title says. I have no words to express my disappointment.


    1- Perception in starting screen has no description


    2- The main character is considered as a male during all the dialogs of the game.


      I created a female character and both Eder and the Narrator refer to my female main character as if she was a " he ".




    Point 1 i understand, but point 2 is not acceptable. It means the traslations was or poorly done or rushed. No much time, so everything was traslated only as if the main char was a male, because adding a traslation for a female main character would have taken too much time.



    In all of this i ask myself : why publish a italian traslation if it is done like this? It's not some minor grammar mistake. My female is considered as a male during all dialogs. This turn my gameplay from entertaining to ridiculous.


    I'm forced to switch to english language i guess...


    Well, if you need a better italian traslation, i'm available. For hire.

  10. So happy to use GoG. It always seemed better than Steam. Afterall, what is Steam good for? Showing achievement to other players?


    But i am, and i have always been, a lonewolf kind of player. I don't play videogames with other people nor i care to show them in real time what i do.


    Anyway, download for me on GoG is going on without a problem.


    Even if 20 Gb of game + 4 backer DLC is going to take some time.


    Let's wait for when we will be able to download our already bought season DLC

  11. I think that people should get what they desire.


    I could argue that guns are wrong and so on, but i know when a battle is lost.


    So, i say : let americans have their guns. They are happy.


    I don't know why we Europeans do not allow our citizens to buy fireweapons...i guess we are not intelligent enough.


    Good, so here in Italy at 5 pm finally the game will be released.


    Italy gets the game at 7 pm.



    Oh well. As long as the game is delivered on my account on GoG, i could wait even for another month or more.


    In fact, i would have been perfectly fine if the developers delayed again the release date.


    Better having the game later but with less bugs, than having it earlyer but with more bugs

  13. Good, so here in Italy at 5 pm finally the game will be released.


    I really, really hope that this game won't be a disappointment. I really hope that it will be as exquisite as the previous one.


    Mainly because it is the first time i trusted some people (Obsidian) enough to invest money on their project as a backer. And it was a lot of euros.

  14. Well, i think that companions are one of the few weak points of Pillars of Eternity.

    And one of the reasons why i started this topic.


    Because afterall if companions are made well, why searching for exotic or unusual companions ?


    People search the unusual in the hope to see something refreshing.


    When i play Baldur's Gate 2, i always take my time to think about who am i going to recruit in my party. Because each Companion you miss means less interesting dialogues and other things. ( Like, for example, Aerie's words against Irenicus in the last battle or Minsc during all the game)


    When instead i play Pillars of Eternity, i don't even try to recruit " companions ". I always prefer to create a whole party of hired adventurers. ( Obviously i already did a few  whole gameplays with each of them in my party)


    Why? Because somehow PoE's companions are in my opinion too bland, they lack that something that make you care about them.

  15. Peanut butter should be a snow cone flavor. Discuss.


    I don't know if you are a troll or if you simply think that being a backer in evry possible way ( judging by your badges) gives you the right to do whatever you want.


    Clearly good manners can't be bought with money.


    Anyway i refuse to being dragged into a pointless discussion. I asked politely to stay on topic. You don't want to do that? Then do what you prefer, i tryed.
