  1. Respecced my lvl 6 Trickster and managed to get 1 - extra - skill...I didn't check if I lost any Watcher skills though
  2. Why do gods have bad memories? But of course, who could forget "Lloth"...
  3. Just get your pet killed and when it revives the debuff should be gone.
  4. I'd suggest playing the game normally rather than reading where everyone is first...
  5. I think what he meant was your post is a rant and in no way helpful to yourself or anyone that may have any issues. If you actually want support, maybe try breaking down what happened and what you were doing when it happened?
  6. Add me to the list with this problem I'm going to go out and let my pet get killed again in the hopes that resets it. Edit: it worked...though my wolf nearly soloed the troll I sent him up against so it took a while
  7. Yup. Loving Wasteland 2 atm. No, I'm not in a hurry for a BB patch but will try it as soon as it drops.
  8. I think this is a case of mountains and molehills. So they're going to balance town encounters as if you'd got all your abilities and resources available? So what. "a heavier emphasis on efficiency and tactical precision" That stands to reason, and does not suggest to me that all fights in towns will be much much harder than anything else. Obviously it's something that needs a balance, and that's something that they'll do on a per-encounter basis like the rest of the game. As to the fact that it's being done because of another game mechanic that's in the game? That's the way it is. Sure they could scrap the rules on resting and healing and getting spells back...or they could just tune a few fights.
  9. I disagree on point 1. More options are always best, and it's the reason why contextual inputs are very often bad, particularly in console-to-PC ports. It's good to have these actions split up. Say for example you know you just want to attack a certain unit, having an 'attack' command means there is no way you can accidentally misclick and move your squishy wizard into harm's way, for example. The keybinds using modifiers don't currently work for Shift/Ctrl/Alt- i.e. you can't set it to 'Shift+' (or 'Shift+None' as it's displayed) though other keys mostly work. No doubt they'll be fixed before release. I'm sure the same goes for extra mouse buttons being bindable too.
  10. Yeah, Ranger's not much fun at the moment. I experienced the same issue with my wolf companion. Moving and relocating it somewhere else in combat would sometimes fix it but not always.
  11. Never mind double-clicking, if I'm selecting a party member I want to use them. Centre the camera with single-click.
  12. Straight from the "How To: Game Basics" link in this section of the Backer Beta forum: "The amount of Camping Supplies you can carry is dependent on the difficulty setting of the game. Higher levels of difficulty will have more restrictions on supplies." Edit: I'd imagine in the full game it'll be introduced early on as well as be in the release manual.
  13. Yup, 1.7 GB of juicy patch goodness on Steam now.
  14. I haven't seen mention of it, but I think as the Slow option is generally something you'd want to use in combat - can't imagine many cases for using it outside combat - it'd be nice to have it in the Autopause options. Yup, that's all for now.
  15. Which, as we've tried to point out, doesn't matter yet. If it was heard in-game and sounded naff, then sure, blame away. As it stands, there's nothing to say that it's not placeholder. Placeholder stuff is generally rubbish. Hell, I've worked on games where the placeholder VO isn't even done by someone of the same gender, usually just a dev for example.
  16. You mean it sounds almost like it's...placeholder? Sigh. Guys, seriously, could you at least just limit yourself to slagging off content that's actually in-game.
  17. This is good news. I'm still in a holding pattern after several setbacks and restarts (fighting 10 boars and losing all my shields etc).
  18. Not being picky (well, maybe a bit), but which region are you basing the release date on (EU/US...or just the first). I know it'd be nice to hope for a universal release but well, these days...
  19. Ignoring the particulars in the first post...quite a lot. It's not like we are playing the same build of the game the devs and testers at Obsidian are.
  20. More options are always good, especially when it's something that'll be present almost all of your game time. As far as the selection circles, it's like everything else associated with combat feedback - there needs to be more of it. So, like shrubber said, feedback for targets of aoe (flashing models/circles etc) and as Sensuki says, selecting/mousing over a friendly should also highlight their target's circle/model.
  21. My main combat concerns are not about the difficulty or amount of micromanaging but simply...feedback. There's not enough information currently displayed when clicking on party members for my liking.
