  1. When I first met Icantha I attacked and killed her (thinking I had to do that to save captives) she immediately respawned and I got the "she shows only minor scratches from the fight" and then she immediately became hostile. This time when I killed her she didn't get back up. Now I've finished the tower and I have to talk to her for the password but everytime I enter she attacks me again. Once killed the screen fades as if loading a cutscene but when it fades back in she's just gone.
  2. This is why I didn't like them dropping the weight limit for loot. Its far too easy to game the system and end up with near infinite money. Hell I only pick up fine or above equipment to sell and I currently have 16k. At level 5.
  3. The game isn't the hardest, as I'm sure the thousand or so threads calling it easy may show, so don't let the idea that your hero is sub optimum cause you to reroll or restart. My hero is utter crap stats wise but I've managed to muddle through on hard with the campaign NPCs. Cipher is probably closest to what you want. Though they are also notoriously OP. Their spells are as strong as a wizard, they don't need to worry about resting or spell limits and they are much more viable for melee builds.
  4. They're completely different games. They're not even the same genre to me. That said personally I prefer the Etrian Odyssey series to Grimrock. The DS was made for that game. Either way Pillars wins out of the three.
  5. You'll know when you've had his dream. Waking up to see him sitting at the campfire. Then waking up. I got mine at level 5 camping near Dyrford just after first unlocking Defiance Bay.
  6. My understanding was it healed a flat percentage of Stamina for all allies. Edit: according to the wiki it is affected by might http://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/Silver_Tide
  7. You are definitely missing DLC This is my list of DLC from the $60 tier Presumably the Wurm is the backer item whilst the pig is a preorder item. Go to your order page (where you got your original code) and see if there is a seperate code for Bonus Content or something. While you're there what edition is your order listed as? For example mine is Pillars of Eternity - Kickstarter Championship Edition
  8. I backed for $60 (+$10 for Prima Guide) and have the black dragon pet. Make sure you have all DLC downloaded and try starting a new game. He should appear as an item in your inventory along with the ring Gaen's Blessing.
  9. I just wish they'd stick to one damn thread. The front page of general right now has 7 seperate threads dedicated to haters.
  10. My guess is the growth of console gaming at the time. Publishers believed that to make a splash on consoles you needed pretty graphics and 2D isometric was never going to cut it. Certainly I can understand EA not wanting to spend millions of dollars and three years only to release a game that looked worse (because of the original Xbox texture/resolution limit) than modded Baldur's Gate.
  11. Are you sure you aren't thinking of Sanitarium? It had a very similar style to that
  12. Grieving Mother is Avellone doing his "cryptic old woman" thing again. Only this time she's hot. So I very much approve Durance is just great. With some wonderful nuanced twisty writing. Asking him "Is that why you walk with a staff?" was one of the better pieces of writing I've seen so far. I like characters who are hard to understand. Much more interesting than the standard "Kooky comic relief" , "Tsundere love interest" and "Inoffensively bland soldier" archetypes you get in Bioware.
  13. This is what I was thinking of. I haven't used it myself because winners don't use respecs. https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/68141-savegame-editor/ Good stuff. Keep us posted if any decisions are made.
  14. This is a first edition RPG. Of course its systems are going to be horribly unbalanced. Look at how long it took D&D to get to which ever edition is your favourite. Generally I like the system, I like that each point in each attribute has an immediate practical effect for every class. I like that it is based on real time rather than some esoteric turn based system cludged into real time. I like the seperate per rest/per encounter system. I like that every class has a ton of active abilities and feats unlike in old D&D where fighters just had one action they'd repeat every turn. But yes. There is plenty of room for improvement in PoE 2.0.
