  1. Has anyone converted Aribeth yet? Or how about some NASA love? (Wasn't sure best way to crop)
  2. It's easy enough to just play in offline mode to ensure no changes to your character during a playthrough. It's what I typically do and I've never run into issues. For any game I fully support gameplay balancing since it opens additional options that you may not of considered before.
  3. I enjoyed the cipher so much in the first game that I played that class for each playthrough. In this game though? I tried it at release and then rerolled into a different class a few hours in and haven't looked back. It just feels...boring, lackluster in POE II. And I don't care how strong soul annihilation is/was, I'd rather stare at a wall than press a single button the whole game.
  4. It can never hurt to polish more. Also, I just recently tried the original on PS4 Pro and it was way better than I expected. I think I'll just wait for the console version this next go around (even though I already have for the PC - I just hope saves transfer properly between games for console). So they should spend as much time needed for bug fixing as I won't be playing for a year or so
  5. This is not a new trend and has been this way since I was a child in the early 80s. It's simply referring to a group of individuals regardless of gender and is commonly used by both sexes. In fact, my mother and both my sisters' use this term constantly; from personal experience I think it may be used more often on the west coast.
  6. Could any kind soul help out with converting these two characters? Thanks!!
  7. Lol, the game is not even out and console users are already asking to dumb the game down. GG Obsidian, this will turn out nicely. Can't wait for multi-platform, 4 team member sized, with cooldowns, and hugely dumbed down in everything PoE3. Are you handicapped or something? In addition, I clearly backed the original game on Kickstarter (i.e. I play on the PC) since the icons are front and center under my user name.
  8. I hope they allow you to control the amount of experience required to level or this is a total no-play on consoles. Hitting the maximum level dozens of hours prior the the end of the game is ridiculous.
  9. Honestly, I wouldn't even worry about Act 3/4. Both those acts are so short compared to the rest of the game that by the time you do everything and then get to those acts (if you do them last) you'll be over 90% done with the game. Sure, you'll be overpowered, but if you do everything you're well over 100 hours at that point and I felt is was good to wrap things up quickly (even if it was easier than the content before it). Also, to the original post, I would recommend 'expert mode' - it really should of been renamed to BG nostalgic mode.
  10. "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The power of this 4 teraflop 128 SIMD core 8GB graphics card is insignificant compared to the power of language and your imagination." -- Darth Vader Speaking as someone who was playing computer games before computer graphics existed, when games printed text to paper, I do not buy into your equivalence between "game" and "visual medium". I love the PoE graphics as much as anyone, and it is a hugely important part of the game's experience. I am frequently in awe of how beautiful it looks, and it makes exploration of
  11. Maybe try satellite internet, or create a mobile hotspot if you have 4G connection on your phone. 20 kb/s is insanely slow, around dial-up speeds ... used to have that in the early 90s. Nowadays, in the U.S., I download at around 3 MB/s, so about 150 times faster (ouch). There are many places that can go quite a bit faster, up to 10 MB/s in cities.
  12. Don't these contradict one another? By what you said above, if you are appreciating suffering then you are enhancing pleasure, but then this would mean that you can't be spiritually free since you're chasing pleasure. By that token, perhaps there are no stoic Buddhist then ... or maybe Zahua is confused (could be the drugs, man).
  13. lol... wtf are you talking about? This forum specifically states the following: Pillars of Eternity: Stories (Spoiler Warning!) Discuss your favorite stories about your playthroughs of Pillars of Eternity & what makes a good cRPG experience. Spoilers are permitted in this forum, but please warn the reader in your title. Right.
  14. The biggest spoiler in the whole game is sitting on the 'No Spoilers' forum - holy ****, give me a break. I would be pissed if I was/hadn't played yet. The TC only posts trolls topics, not sure why anyone responds, but I think this is worthy of a ban.
  15. Sorry, I don't agree at all. In fact, one of the first things I look at when deciding to purchase a game is how long it is. Since I only play RPGs, really anything less than 30 hours kills my excitement, and less than 20 hours is almost a guaranteed no buy. The reason is simple: to me the purpose of an RPG is to build and roleplay a character, and to interact and investigate the lore of the world - something that is difficult to do in a short period of time. I'm looking for something similar to a novel, but with gameplay. It's the same reason I don't read short stories - not enough meat on the

  17. I disagree; I don't like GM at all - I found her to be the most boring character. I particularly liked Durance's reveal and how his story was deeply intertwined with the backstory of the game. I also liked Eder as a bff, Pallegina as the moral compass, Hiravias as the comedy relief, and Aloth/Kana as the insightful lore companions.
  18. I received just over 160k experience with a full party doing everything. Since it's 120k to reach level 16 normally, a 33% increase in experience is around 159k experience required for level 16. So, you would probably reach maximum level with 35%, but may have trouble at 40% - I may have missed a couple quests, but I talked to everyone and went everywhere; this would only be likely if additional quests open up in old places after advancing the plot. Of course, if you played with less than a full party you could probably make 50% increased experience work. That said, level 15 should be the
  19. You could always turn on the increased xp multiplier at level 8 or whatever. This would require a lot of experience to reach the next level, but you would effectively stall your character growth when they started to feel too op. Or you could not, and just complain about it.
  20. This is good news. I don't like the idea of writing dialog to the lowest common denominator.
  21. I completely disagree with this. I've played games since the 80s, love to read huge fantasy and sci fi books, and I vastly prefer voice acting. Why? Because it adds depth to the characters. While the first voice acting attempts in the early 2000s were so bad that it was almost impossible to prefer it over straight text, these days voice acting is quite good and add a lot to games ... it's as simple as imagining those you interact with on a daily basis having no voice - communication would be through either writing or (I guess) sign language. Whether you realize it or not, you attach emotions t
  22. Honestly, having a keep like this does NOTHING for me. Not a thing. I'd rather be a pure adventurer, roaming free through the land, exploring and looking for treasures and doing quests and so on, rather than having to administer some boring old castle. I will say that what I've seen thus far does seem to be what I suspect some will see as an improvement, and that's ok. My gripe is with the major challenge "quest" for ownership of Caed Nua. It seems to come far too soon after you've taken Caed Nua and I'm constantly wondering how long I can put this quest off, because the first 3-4 time
  23. Mychal thanks for your post. I was wondering can you tell me in which order did you do things, what did you upscale and how challenging did you find act 3 and 4? I started with 35% and find it quite satisfying. I'm only lvl 6 atm tho I progressed as follows (includes grabbing and completing all quests in each area): (Act I) - Gilded Vale and all surrounding areas up to Caed Nua - Raedric's Hold - Caed Nua - Endless Paths 1 - 4 - Woodend Plains and Aedelwan Bridge (Act II) - Copperlane - Endless Paths 5 - 6 - Brackenbury - Endless Paths 7 - 8 - Ondra's Gift - Endless
