  1. He is a professional - he aims for any hair you may possibly have. Anywhere.
  2. This is a very broad question. I think any race is ok, there are no critically important traits among race bonuses, but there are indeed some powerful combos. For support - a nature godlike who is a lifegiver druid can synergise both racial and class bonuses to reach a very high power level to do extreme healing. For striking - Hearth orlan has a nice useful bonus for those builds where you need to crit often. At the same time you can max resolve with him. In general - I think moon godlikes have the most versatile and the easiest to use bonus. Healing with autotrigger is always good be you a support, be you a damager, be you a tank.
  3. If cipher can be seen as caster - turn-based is great for him from level one! Finally the Anticipation Field can be maxed out = targeted properly. I fried the whole pirate pack in prologue with 2 rays. In RtWP you had to cast it and start running in circles trying to catch targets. AF was the best lvl 1 cipher spell, but only on paper. Now it is comfortable to use.
  4. The mentioned figurines are once-per-encounter items. They recharge after each battle and can be used again. They add the shaman fetish flavour to chanter + allow non-summon classes to still summon smth Has anyone tested chanters in turn-based mode? Do they feel different, like firearms? There were complaints about troubadours not working correctly.
  5. I'm a summon freak! But summoner was way more fun in Divinity OS 2. Can't say that PoE is a summoner's dream. In any other aspect I prefer PoE, but summoner was cooler in D:OS 2. My additions 1) There are figurines. They allow you to summon creatures ASAP. So any class is able to summon immediately without chanting and waiting. You can make hunting for these figurines a cool roleplay flavour. 2) I don't like beckoners. Their creatures are x2 in quantity, but x2 smaller and weaker. Sometimes it's hard even to see them! I go base chanter (no subclass). Minmaxers should go beckoner. I prefer to summon 2 huge ogres, than 4 ogres half-sized. They look stupid. 3) Ppl are right about Herald being the best combo (you heal summons and you are very sturdy). But mind the fact that you are locked from 2 top levels of both classes if you multiclass. Top-tier abilities are usually unused anyway, too expensive, but top level summon is a DRAGON. If your goal is to "get the full zoo" it may be a thing. 4) wizards and druids get summoned weaponry (think conjuration daedric weapons in TES) 5) there is a companion she can also be a herald if you choose
  6. you're still standing around for a whole turn with no ability to react to whatever is happening around you yes, you are already standing like this in the core RTWP game. if you want to reload - you stand and lose a period of time equal to ~2 average actions. if you break the reloading process - you lose it and start anew A battlemage can buff-cast himself to heaven and swing a sword while you reload a gun. but this makes you adapt - you switch weapon slots, you drop empty guns and start ciphering, using other class abilities or go melee Be this system good or bad - why is it turned into semi-auto fire in a system supposed to be the analog
  7. I like the idea of TBM. I enjoy it a lot as it is. Thanks a lot for this mode. But. Gunners seem to fire each turn. Yes, they have more initiative, and they fire last, but they reload immediately at the end of their turn. So now firearms feel like semi-automatic and are way too powerful for early gunpowder era. In RTwP you fire (let's say aiming+shooting = 3 sec), then you reload for let's say 6 sec. This ratio (1:2 or 1:3) makes good renaissance feel. The gun is devastating but the miss is a huge loss and while reloading you feel like you miss a lot of action. Some classes are able to do A LOT while you just reload your primitive gun. In my current run i feel more like I'm playing fallout 1-2: gunners exchange shots each turn, like their guns are semi-automatic with clip load. Their shooting pace is too high for any single-load weaponry. I'm not sure if I get it right - maybe there is some counter-balancer I don't see? Shouldn't the gun be loaded as at least standard action (consume a single turn or even two)? Pros: - bows and x-bows will be a strong alternative (reload immediately, fire every turn) - player will be forced to choose between reloading the gun OR doing something else - early era guns will be early era guns (they are already loaded too fast even in real time) - there will be the need to carry a pack of pre-loaded guns and switch (standard action) to shoot them all (as it was IRL). Pistols can be switched faster (free action), finally giving them some usefulness. - shooters will be very effective in packs (as it was IRL). You can even set volley fire! It's really strange I can fire every turn. Is it a bug or a feature?
  8. I can play both PoEs even on Air 2015. You just install Steam client for OS X and get the same library Of course mine is heating like oven and the cooler goes insane, but they run surprisingly smooth Pretty sure Pro will do
  9. FreeCiv is an open-source crowd-development project, runs on everything, incl. Linux and Android. Has an option to use core Civ 2 rules. Also free.
  10. At the moment 5 is the best for newcomers. 6 has good potential but is very raw it will take 1 more huge DLC (coming 14.02.2019) + some patch period to complete it. Better try it in spring/summer. 4 is very hardcore, has some doubtful mechanics I don't like and looks a bit out-of-date. Still it is the deepest and the most mature one. I suggest 5. France, Korea or Russia are very solid.
  11. Hmm, they launched a twitter poll where 42% vote pro, 7% against and 51% say "don't care". Huge difference with this forum's general mood I wonder what is the purpose of this poll +1 to those who suggest a thematic flaw. Like you try to romance, get several rejects and get a complex A good joke on romance in games and fits the general mood.
  12. Her good personal story + maybe a good personal quest for her is way better than "do stuff she is programmed to like, get X points, watch boob cutscene or dark screen or read some wet text" romance. New Vegas, KotORs and Planescape did it well. Hope we'll get the same level in ToW.
  13. They say the game has been in development for 2 years. Still they will need at least a year to polish imho So Q3-Q4 I guess. I don't expect it earlier but will be happy to be wrong
  14. I don't like shooters and I wouldn't play modern fallouts at all if they didn't include vats from old fallouts. It is a crucial feature. So this topic is very important to me. Slow-mo will never equal a proper tactical pause. Fallout 4 proved it. Any kind of "time warp meter" still leaves me with this nervous feeling that it will soon deplete. Action is still going on, bullets are flying, you are still at risk. Active pauses are comforting. You know you can take your time. At the moment it is my only major concern. Anything else looks amazing to me. No tactical pause = I take "leader" build and let companions do all the fighting. Maybe will throw grenades.
  15. I'll take Ondra's TBH I've never had any feeling of dangerous and unpredictable ocean I'm crossing A new subclass for EACH class is jaw drop indeed +1
