  1. I notice that perception is being used a lot in dialogue...is it worth having it bc of that?
  2. I think rerolling...did not make perception high enough, currently lvl 5 and it comes up a lot in dialogues and especially watcher related issues.
  3. dont know if this has been posted before, just found it...i'll just put it here http://imgur.com/gallery/DGrzs
  4. On deviant art there are some awsome fantasy pics that might fit into the PoE, even art stylewise...just crop and there ye go hehe
  5. I had similar feelings towards magic system in POE as the OP, at least mage wise. I supposed grimoire is just more sophisticated tool than what we have seen earlier (which it is) generally blueprints, guide for making wiz more sophisticated in shaping those energies...unlike druid or other more intuitive, feel it, zen meditate, whatever...shape it and cast it. I was bit dissapointed that without the spellbook he is pretty much powerless by what we know so far. No matter if he can tome by heart so to speak. All magical energies are stored within the book. Wiz just sort of tunes himself /his sou
  6. Imo portrait art should be consistent in style. I dont like if suddenly mod introduces a character but gives him cartoony anime, manga style look. Some find that amusing and clever. It isnt.
  7. I liked the interview with Josh. Some stuff like reputation system. The way your character behaves, will come to be known. He mentioned if through dialogues your character is picking witty lines, that might be how people start to view your character. Whixh is great.
  8. Spiritual successor, uhm maybe. I just hated the magic vs tech after awhile. It didnt make sense imo. I wanted to be dual wielding techomage.
  9. My first pick human. Although I might go with demonspawn...i mean godlike!
  10. You are right, perhaps I should go replay Icewind Dale to revisit the epic tale of PC cleric #2, and the tragic death of his lover PC mage #1. If there is a plot to icewind dale, then it fell into the same trap as FF12, in that the story follows some random pricks instead of whoever the story is really about. You saw an amazing story, I saw a string of cliches that existed only to drag me from dungeon to dungeon, ending with a boring twist that doesn't really change anything. I seriously enjoyed IWD. Just becouse it was unlike BG series start where it all starts with shock and murky reve
  11. depends on the quality you're after - professional artist, you could be looking at a few hundred dollars (unless you want the copyright in the image too - then more). Semi-pro, a bit less maybe. You could find a hobbyist to do it in return for a GOG game or something. Or just wait til the community start churning out portrait packs for PoE sizes and hope one fits. Personally, I like to make my own portraits. They won't be as good as Kaz can do, but they should fit the style enough to not look out of place. Eventually (too busy right now), I'll add a few to the art-thread. At such a t
  12. Note that all the developers said was that this is a "cat" form; there's nothing about a werelion or a werebobcat. But I agree with you about the genderless appearance. I know...If that thing coupulates with another of those things...we would classify it! Now to capture us some male and female druids and have them go at it. Right. Nothing bizzare or pervy about that, it is all in name of progress.
  13. I think portrait should be most obvious disclosure of your characters most subtle features. So if one doesnt find decent portrait ingame depicting your character, how much you guys think a comission is for some artist to do ingame portrait?
  14. That would be cool, i think desert can fall near tropical enough as well. We might get some bigger picture of PoE world.
  15. Yeah i will have to do the same i guess, have to cheat in my mind tho. I feel you. I prefer the "I actually take energy/mana into myself and shape it into something else before releasing it" as well. And yeah, the Wheel of Time reference is great. The grimoire right now acts basically just like a ter'angreal; it gathers and manipulates the energy to do what it does (or, rather, each spell in the tome is like a separate ter'angreal. It's like a ter'angreal multi-tool, haha). But, alas, it seems we won't really see any angreal or sa'angreal-type devices that simply deal with energy being g
  16. Mhmhmhm...thats...thin. But I appreciate the effort I dunno.... I'd say the Wizard shapes magic, he just uses tools (namely, a Grimoire -- all the associated materials and techniques) to do it, instead of some innate ability. Also, if his soul energy is in no way affiliated with the operation of the Grimoire, then why does switching grimoires mid-combat result in a delay while the new grimoire attunes itself to the wielder? And grimoires use spells, but someone's gotta devise and "create" (in the sense of coming up with the "recipe/formula" for imbuing a page in a grimoire with the c
