  1. My class was a Ravager (Shattered Pillar Monk/ No Subclass Barbarian) So i finished the game on POTD with stats : Might: 18 Con: 11 Dex: 10 Per:10 Int: 10 Res: 19 the game went fine using robes and light armor, Mohora Tanga and Tuotilo's Palm. I spec into both two weapon fighting and sword + shield fighting. This makes me very tanky. Only issue I ran into was missing a lot of my hits. I had enough life and i was attacking more than fast enough. A lot of people don't know this, but with Shattered Pillar Might is just the way to go. Dex is good, and it yields superior dps but you're alre
  2. Well to be fair I actually like this story better than many others. The narrative of poe 1 was over-complicated. BG1 had a good but over-complicated plot as well . BG2 and its expansion are some of the best story lines in gaming. Icewind Dale 2 was good as well. Some of the characters are bland and caricaturish in Deadfire but the story is good overall. My main criticism is the end. It really sucks the life out of the adventure but the direction is okay and i loved the way they explored sociopolitical themes.
  3. So i loved the ride to this game but that ending was awful. 1st of all, we never get any answers about what the world was like before the wheel. Travel through Ukaizo was so fast. All they would have needed to add were maybe some murals or some lines of dialogue but we dont even get that. The beast of Ukaizo. Gives us this confusing explanation involving outsiders and old ones. If the beast is going to be using our language why would it name the the Engwithans and Huana something we cannot readily identify? The last big problem is the final confrontation. It puts the protagonist in the positi
  4. I want to save her, you just know her love died at sea or something and shes just trying to fill an empty heart with strange men.
  5. Seriously, go to the Wild Mare and talk to her. Literally the most attractive NPC in a CRPG i have ever seen. I dont even like girls that skinny either. Doll has a sexy voice, loves poetry and is wild. Lol yeah i know its random. Just saying bro...
  6. If this is true, what devil did he deal with to be good at both? CAN I DEAL WITH IT AS WELL?! You guys talking about Brandon Sanderson made me think: do they have Highstorms in Rauatai? Does that mean Ukaizo's a conduit for Stormlight between the cognitive and physical realm? Is animancy the study of Investiture? THERE'RE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES HERE! also, inb4 the gods turn out to be some weird shard offshoot Or a Shard comes to show what a "real god" looks like. huh lolol i hadn't thought of that
  7. If this is true, what devil did he deal with to be good at both? CAN I DEAL WITH IT AS WELL?! Lol Sanderson says he can do both but i really feel like he is more of a worldbuilder himself
  8. So in my last post I complained about how badly the characters, namely Pallagina and Xoti, were written. To balance things out i wanted to complement this game on its worldbuilding. The factions and cultures are extremely well drawn. I have trouble deciding whose vision to side with. It all seems very realistic and there is very little if any bias weaved into the narrative. Brandon Sanderson once said something to the effect of 'there are two kinds of writers, worldbuilders and character writers. I think Obsidian must just do a better job at he worldbuilding. There are noble natives with backw
  9. Also happens at poko kohara. Wurms again i think. Does anyone know if the beta patch fixes this?
  10. Right now its 10 base +might bonus. Which means like 13 if your might is at 18... I think it would be fair at something like 15 base + level + might bonus. Might seem strong but again that's losing you a helmet.
  11. i dont need it to be like it was in poe 1, but right now its practically useless. i think its just a flat 10+ might modifier from what im seeing.
  12. I tried *SO MANY TIMES*. Literally like a *dozen* times, couldn't manage to do it. They run up to him to damn fast, I couldn't even get close. Position Aloth and Xoti in the front of the party. Use Aloth's Call to Slumber to sleep the three guys near Giacolo. Rush Xoti forward and have her cast Withdraw on Giacolo. U have to pause fast right after the conversation. Do it manually because it has to be faster than the game's default.
  13. Think they will bother to buff the Silver Tide? Ill be sticking with this race, but the amount is so small i cant see a reason to pump might.
  14. Seems like Silver tide is a flat 10 healing. I was pushing might on my character thinking i could get a nice heal out of it but im noticing the base is really small...
  15. Wow I just finished Pallegina's companion quest... Very manipulative game-writing... You basically have to say abortion is okay in order to get Tatzatl to let Giacolo live. I personally think abortion should be legal but jeeze that's preachy writing. Stories should make you think, not tell you what to think. Not only was that situation awkwardly themed but it's not realistic at all. Why would a group of pirates be floating around thinking so hard about the greater good that they feel the need to kidnap a dude who has done nothing but help their kind?
  16. I haven't gotten too far into the game but I kind of feel like the characters are a bit needlessly polarized. Eider has always been very nuanced in how he questioned his faith. It kind of makes sense that he lost much of it from the events of the first game. Pallegina, on the other hand, didn't seem to have any issue with Hylea until council of stars when the Goddess ignored her. Fast forward to deadfire and Pallegina seems to have some vendetta against the Gods and we find out she had her Godlike connection severed when she was very young. It seems like they added a bunch of new details to h
  17. Im only up to 10th level on potd but i I just focus on getting healing and protection spells. I slapped some heavy armor on her and she still does fine. I have her using a cross bow but she does great in melee to protect my backline when enemies break through the tanks.
  18. So in the original Pillars i remember that all specializations work on soulbound weapons. so for instance you could use two weapon proficiency on a twohanded weapon to add 20% attack speed. I wanted to do the same thing with Lord Darryn's Voulge on my ravager. Do soulbound weapons still interact with proficiency this way? Im trying to make a resolve crit ravager build with shattered pillar.
  19. I have the same problem. It also happens in the Oathbinder's sanctum with the wurm's attack. I think it has to do with the projectiles they fire.
  20. It seems like the game has an issue with certain projectile attacks. In the fourth floor of the oathbinder's sanctum when a wurm attacks with its fire projectile the game immediately crashes. Similarly in the old city, when I fight cave bat's their green projectile crashes the game. This is getting to be incredibly irritating.
  21. I have an issue in the same area. The moment a wurm attacks and its projectile is in the air the game crashes. It happens on the fourth floor.
