  1. I didn't really have a problem with loot. Just farm the shops like mad
  2. Excellent, thanks! Also glad to see new item tiers, got some upgraded stuff already in the main campaign on my way to the DLC.
  3. Just wondering if I can look forward to a new shop set up in the Aranoi desert.
  4. Discussion Thread Starter on the topic of the Treasures of the Sun DLC's Enchanting mechanic. My impression and suggestions: Although the addition of Enchanting is a great way to add a world of customization to DS3, it seems unbalanced to be able to add effects to ANY piece of equipment (despite my usual support of building overpowered characters through innovation). The balancing factor is tremendous Gold cost of enchanting and the rarity of obtaining Essences through transmutation or drops. SUGGESTION: Possibly make some Enchants equipment specific and add caps for the value of the attribute bonus. Or add a chance of failure after a certain threshold (reduced cost) Major Essences are cost ~50% less per point of added attribute than adding Minor Essences. SUGGESTION: I would really appreciate the ability to combine Minor Essences into Major Essences. SUGGESTION: Transmutation of Enchanted items always return at least 1 or 50%+ of the current Enchantments on the equipment. So Enchanting its exclusive for late/post game Also, Transmuting Legendary items (Gold naming) results in a 100% major essence obtainment rate if the item had a viable attribute (Doom, Chaos: Vampire, Retribution, Stagger and Warding). Additionally, if the Gold item was bought from a shop, then it will return to the shop and be able to be purchased again. I am also saddened that Enchanting is limited to adding only a few attributes: Doom, Chaos: Vampire, Retribution, Stagger and Warding. SUGGESTION: I hope to see future DLC's that add to this list of possible Enchantments.
  5. Having played only played the main campaign with the DLC augmentation, I can say that enemy hitpoints seems to have doubled on Hardcore. Also, Enchanting can be a limitless endeavor that can create truly awe-inspiring character battle outcomes. I stopped progress just to farm the Gold and Essences I desired to add to my equipment. However, I am saddened that Enchanting is limited to adding only a few attributes: Doom, Chaos: Vampire, Retribution, Stagger and Warding. I hope to see future DLC's that add to this list of possible Enchantments.
  6. New abilities: Players are now able to attain mastery of the arcane through powerful new attack, defense and healing abilities. Are there actually many new abilities or is it just those 3 "Ultimate abilities" from the shrines?
  7. Being bored on the forums I noticed you were online and are pretty avid on the forums. If you don't mind, what are your impressions on DS3's DLC?

  8. Hmm Complete implies that this will be the only DLC for this title So enchanting is added to the main campaign as well? Confirmed: Enchanting & Essence drops implemented in the main campaign. See my Reinhart Thread for more impressions: Greatest Legion Hero: Reinhart Manx - DLC initial impressions
  9. At least that means we'll be getting news this week right? RIGHT? ....
  10. I've gotten to level 30 in all my gameplays. It is true each area has a level cap. The time at which you may start gain experiencing through level 30 is the Jeyne Kassender boss fights. When you re-enter the Mournweld with all its corruption, you can grind those areas to 30. You may have to save and reload a few times to get there. You could also try to collect Anjali's super rare legendary items from monster drops if you like. That will add hours for sure haha
  11. Pick Reinhart. At least you got it as a gift; just play the game and buy Skyrim if you want character creation. Guide to the Greatest Legion Hero.
  12. I do see what your saying. Caress of Suffering uses Ability DPS and so does Warding Ritual with Painful Rebuke proficiency. Katrina was apparently intended for agility builds only. You mainly use Dual Wield Stance to gain focus and use the abilities before switching to Rifle stance for greater damage. Interesting point however
  13. Reinhart's ONLY flaw: his 2 weapon stance is actually 1 weapon and 1 armor. The game treats his Dynamic Stance Belt weapon as a piece of armor so it never spawns with any Chaos Effects or Doom. Please fix this Obsidian. Besides that, he's ridiculously awesome. Check out my guide to greatest legion hero, Reinhart Manx. The Greatest Legion Hero: Reinhart Manx
  14. I fully understand your desire to fully understand the game at a fundamental and intimate level; however, because this game isn't a competitive one or even a true multiplayer RPG it's easy to see why Obsidian didn't prioritize detailing the formal damage calculations. They offered an in game help menu that details many things about the game and also in their guild book that included developer's commentary. For those of you without the guild, its hard to appreciate the effort they put into the game and the character's especially. I believe that if they choose to do so, they can use the current DS3 model to create an awesome game the could rival Diablo 3. Being a perfectionist and enthusiast, I have great respect and appreciation for the developers. Through testing and careful analysis of the available written insights on DS3, I've come to understand the game, the characters and it's damage mechanics well. If you have a question on a certain build please ask. I may or may not produce a guild on it soon. Bottom line: Obsession with numbers and optimum damage output will make you miserable. Enjoy the game don't be afraid to try new things.
  15. Wow dude, I'm sorry to hear that. I've only played local co-op with a friend and I can say that the difficult seems to scale, even if slightly. Rajani was super hard the second time playing through with a friend but not the first. Weird. Fortunately, in the upcoming DLC you may reallocate skill points so hopefully, that will alleviate your issue. Cheers!
