  1. Yeah, I believe the dead end is "What happened after you became Chieftain?" Before starting WM2, he just replies, "Enough to wear out your ears, I'll spare you for now." You have to revisit it after starting WM2.
  2. Crank up your stronghold's Prestige, that results in more adventures. I found that they tend to come in a flood towards the end game. Eventually I "used up" all the named adventures without even trying, and was just getting generic ones like "major adventure" or "grand adventure."
  3. Exceptional replaces Fine, Superb replaces Exceptional, etc. They don't stack. This goes for the enchantment slots as well. Therefore upgrading from Fine to Exceptional will only cost 2 extra slots. I try to get everything up to Fine and Exceptional quality ASAP. The materials for doing so aren't that rare if you know where to look, and the cost isn't an issue by mid-game and later. Superb and beyond is very limited because the enchanting components for them so are limited. Therefore you will have to choose carefully. Note however that you can't replace attribute bonuses with
  4. Yeah, character creation says, "Ciphers can directly target allies and enemies with powerful soul-focused effects." That's a little vague, as the player could reasonably assume the Cipher him/herself is included in that. More direct and clear is the description on the Wiki: "Powers require Focus and a nearby target other than themselves, one with a 'housed' soul. In practical terms, this means that ciphers must always target a nearby ally or an enemy with their powers. It is impossible for them to target themselves, a distant target, or open ground"
  5. The traps on the chests in the room are at level 14 and 10 with upscaled content. That's disarming level, detecting level was lower. No trouble there. I couldn't detect the door trap even at Mechanics 15. v 3.04
  6. Not right away, but it matters in the ending slides. Be reliable. Yeah that complaint bugged me as well. Also, though it may be a small consequence, you can convince a Dozens member at the hearing that animancy isn't so bad and he will be trying to help animancers escape the riots.
  7. "Time" is also used to indicate a period of time, i.e., duration. I would hesitate to change the names of some basic game terms unless they were really misleading. BTW, great work with this idea. Project is looking good so far.
  8. I made these from the artwork that came with the game.
  9. That is not right. The Devil of Caroc can be healed like anyone else - she only can't use food, drugs or potions. For example: give her Veteran's Recovery or use Lay on Hands on her and you'll see that she heals like any other character. I'm talking about healing endurance here of course. But even health can be regained via Woubd Binding or Field Trage. Not with a potion of Infuse with Vital Essence though. I'm talking about health, not endurance. Field Triage doesn't work on the Devil. That's right. Wound Binding works, but Field Triage doesn't. I recently used Wound Binding on DoC
  10. That is not right. The Devil of Caroc can be healed like anyone else - she only can't use food, drugs or potions.

Field Triage doesn't work on the Devil.
  11. Lazy here. I keep two weapon slots for each character, but switching doesn't occur too often. The main cause is when I need to switch between melee/ranged. For example, when the Devil gets low on health (since she can't be healed), I'll pull her back from melee to a ranged position. If an enemy breaks through the front line and is pummeling my Priest he will switch from a scepter to a staff. That kind of stuff. Another reason is enemy immunities. No point in having Zahua go punch Crush-immune enemies like Ice Blights. Time to switch. The final reason for switching are those inst
  12. According to this thread you have to talk to all 4 spirits and exhaust all the dialogue options.
  13. The eye strain from this bug is killing me. Does anyone have any other ideas on why this is happening or how to address it? Changing resolutions has not worked. It's kind of ruining the game for me. I've come to terms with all the myriad combat bugs, but when I can't even bear to look at item tooltips I don't see how I can play this game.
  14. The point I agree on is the messenger telling you about Raedric. I think he should initiate a dialogue when you enter the tavern, or at least have an overhead text pop-up like "hey, over here!" I never missed him myself because I talked to everyone the first time through, but I could see how it could happen.
  15. A popular mod called IE Mod allowed for reduced XP as one feature. It will likely be updated for the upcoming game version.
  16. Actually, they did. Companions' voice sets in \PillarsOfEternity_Data\data\audio\vocalization\vo wav include this barks but for some reason they never trigger. Pallegina says, for example, "Do you think if you click on me enough that I'll lay an egg? Sorry to disappoint you." Yeah, listening to the video Sannom linked above, all the characters had a few lines like that. I wonder if you have to click repeatedly in quick succession, but I never heard them before. Actually there were quite a few lines I'd never heard before.
  17. In my game, after defeating Raedric, the fampyr simply continued to say, "Lord Raedric is right this way, he's waiting for you."
  18. Well, it's an improvement at least, however late. "Major adventure, Minor adventure, etc.," seemed like such a soulless, unfinished placeholder kind of thing. Since the rewards are connected to the quests, I suppose now I'll be excited to see the corresponding quest pop up at the stronghold, rather than, "ho hum, something for Kana to do."
  19. Really outstanding painting! I love having more pictures of the godlikes on hand, in fact more portraits altogether is great.
  20. I wish that the merchant inventory filter buttons were worth something, so that if you pushed "armor" all you would see was the armor, not have the other items slightly dimmed but still in the way.
  21. The ambush mechanic is kinda cheap, especially with enemies that teleport among your ranks at will. Wait until you're level 10 or so to do it, you'll cut through them like butter.
  22. Yes, for sure. The impression I got from the developer posts and interviews about this is that they didn't want to punish or alienate players who only had the time or energy to play the main story line, so they made sure to have main story be easy enough for low and mid-level characters. It rubs me the wrong way though, as the "completionist" gets framed as a sort of neurotic with too much time on their hands, grinding away doing tedious things that average players wouldn't want to do. But all I'm doing is exploring maps, meeting characters, solving quests, fighting enemies (in other wo
