  1. @Noqn Thanks! I thought it would be somewhere in the vicinity of about 25. My first time around the wheel I was eager to move on from SSS to FS so just did the mandatory fights and moved on, but this time I've ramped up the difficulty and I'm enjoying the challenging combat so happy there are so many optional fights (kinda wish there were more actually).
  2. Just a quick note to say that I just stumbled upon this (S4) whilst googling about S3, and I can definitely see me coming back to do this once I've finished my current playthrough of Deadfire. Very cool!
  3. Hi folks. A few quick questions regarding SSS. I thought I did a "complete" playthrough of Deadfire about a year ago but I now realise I skipped a lot of the content for the SSS DLC and moved on to FS before finishing the game. This time I'm challenging myself to completing the entire game including all 3 DLCs on PoTD upscaled so I want to do every challenge/trial in SSS. Can someone please tell me how many actual arena fights there are if you do all the memory-item hunts? Also, I've just noticed that I can re-do trials after already completing their fights; can you just endlessly repeat them? And do they give the same rewards each time?
  4. In my current run I've been playing PoTD with upward-only level scaling but not with Trial of Iron. I have to salute you, Watcher! Do you play pretty much the entire game (i.e. main story + most side quests + all 3 DLCs) on PoTD + ToI? I had to repeat a few fights in Arkemyr's Manor, the Hanging Sepulchers, and had more than a few wipes in BoW and SSS, and I'm sure I had to repeat a couple of other fights as well, and I think I would get very frustrated having to restart from the very beginning with ToI mode. I find just regular PoTD with upscaling challenging and slow-going enough for me. Out of interest, I presume your Herald is a kind wayfarer (my current main character is a kind wayfarer/troubadour Herald and it's healing is awesome through dual-wielding flames of devotion and chants).
  5. Hi folks. I'm currently doing SSS and then straight on to FS. I want to bring Fassina with me (to see her dialogue and relationship with Konstanten as I missed those in my previous run). However, I have no idea what to do with Fassina. Her conjurer sub-class seems to add little (as most of the conjuring spells don't benefit much from PLs) and remove a whole bunch of decent wizard spells. Any suggestions for how to build and use her (open to suggestions for her as conjurer, lore-master or sorcerer). Just for info, the rest of the party I'm running for the DLCs is Herald (main) + Howler (Konstanten) + Priest (Xoti) + Mindstalker (Ydwin), and I'm playing POTD upscaled and currently level 19.
  6. Hi folks. I could do with some suggestions for how to configure my party for the SSS and Forgotten Sanctum dlcs. I've done these DLCs before on an easier difficulty setting using the regular companions but this time want to take Ydwin, Konstanten and Fassina (to see their dialogue and barks). I am playing on PoTD upscaled, and finding it doable but rather difficult, and as I recall SSS and FS are pretty tough, so I want a solid party set up that works well, but struggling to think of a good combination that includes my main character, Ydwin, Konstanten and Fassina. For vanilla and Bow I used the following party: Paladin-Chanter (Main Character) + Fighter (Eder) + Druid (Tekahu) + Priest (Xoti or Vatnir) + Rogue-Cipher (Ydwin) (for BoW I replaced Tekahu with a Ranger-Druid so I could use Concussive Tranq on Neriscyrlas). For SSS and FS I'm thinking of filling the Druid spot with Fassina (Druid-Wizard), but I'm concerned that a multi-class caster/caster is not a good idea. What do you think, can Fasssina as Druid/Wizard (Sorcerer) work on PoTD upscaled? I'm also not sure what class to use for Konstanten and who to replace. Maybe remove Eder and configure Konstanten as a Barbarian-Chanter (Howler)? In summary, I could do with any suggestions for the party as long as it involves my Paladin-Chanter, Ydwin, Fassina and Konstanten. I haven't yet recruited Fassina and Konstanten so no class selection has been made for them yet (and I can use mod to reset the class selection for companions/sidekicks if necessary). Best wishes, Vas.
  7. @BoeroerDungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale were classics I also played when I was young (though I somehow missed Pools of Radiance). And I get what you say about MMOs and forums. I went through an MMORPG phase (mainly World of Warcraft and Elder Scrolls Online) but nowadays just play single-player CRPGs like Deadfire and Pathfinder, and other tactical/strategic games and get my gaming community fix through forums and discord rather than in-game chat.
  8. @BoeroerHehe, I can sympathise. When I look at the total time I've got invested in all the RPG games I've got in Steam then I start to feel a bit weird too.
  9. Quick open question for fellow visitors to this forum; how many times have you been around the wheel in PoE and Deadfire? I'm nearing the end of my second complete run-through and whilst I have a backlog of other games to play, I'm seriously thinking of immediately starting a third complete playthrough. (I'm usually a one-and-done player when it comes to CRPGs so for me this is quite unusual).
  10. What about Rekke? Does he get any dialogue content in the DLCs (or the vanilla game for that matter)?
  11. Hi folks. I've just hit level 16 in current run and about to start doing the DLCs. Last time around the wheel I did the DLCs without using the "sidekicks". This time I want to see their dialogue. Two questions: 1) Firstly, my understanding is that the following sidekicks have significant content in the DLCs: BoW (Vatnir and Ydwin), SSS and FS (Konstantin and Fassina). Is that about right? Do Ydwin and Vatnir get any content in SSS and FS? 2) I stumbled upon a post that suggests that Rekke actually gets a good amount of content in the above DLCs. I assumed in my previous run through that he had no significant content seeing as he doesn't speak any Deadfire language. Is it worth taking him with me?
  12. So I guided Xoti to the dark "reaper" path by encouraging her to keep the souls in her lantern and it's clear from her morbid dialogue about the things she hears, sees and dreams that her mind is quite broken now. I've been keeping her in the party to see if this manifests itself in any interesting ways but it just seems to be these occasional repeated darker dialogues snippets. If I keep her in the party, does it ever become anything more than these occasional snippets of dark dialogue?
  13. So one thing I've discovered is that if your hired adventurers who are not part of your current party die whilst defending the ship from a boarding attack, they are permanently killed. Had a battle against 18 people on the enemy ship, and whilst they all went down easily, not before they swamped my non-party companions on the edge of the battle. Guess it's a good idea to keep them all levelled up and well geared at all times even if they are not part of the main party. Not sure if that also applies to the companions (Aloth nearly died in the fight whilst not part of the party, had to heal him up quickly otherwise he would have dropped).
