  1. I'd like to avoid playing a Paladin because of that class ability that requires you to respond to things in a certain way, but I can see how they would be a good fit otherwise. Does the Will bonus from Resolve make it easier to hit an enemy's Will defense? I forget how all the combat math works.
  2. Hey everyone. I made it about halfway through Pillars back when it released, but had to stop due to my video card dying. I'm finally getting back into it, and I decided that I'd rather reroll instead of trying to pick up where I left off. I'd like some advice on what classes/builds can work with a high Resolve character. I remember liking Resolve quite a bit for the additional dialog options it provided on my first character, who was a Chanter. I really enjoyed my Chanter, but I'd like to try something different this time just for the sake of variety. I'm particularly interested in a Cipher, R
  3. I'm happy to report that I finally fixed the issue! I completely removed all of my video drivers, and then downloaded drivers directly from ASUS (my video card manufacturer). ASUS technical support told me that those drivers are outdated and that I would be better getting them from AMD, but given that I had already tried using the ones from AMD many times, I ignored technical support and did it anyway. I played all last night and had zero BSODs, or any other problems. If any developers read this and would like any more information on my system in order to try and fix whatever problem Pill
  4. Giving this another bump. My hands are starting to shake from PoE withdrawal.
  5. True, pattern was likely not the right word. Anyway, from what I've been able to Google, it seems like it's more likely to be a driver issue than a hardware issue. I play a variety of other games, including Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Mechwarrior Online, none of which cause me any problems at all. I don't think that hardware would be the culprit since this issue only happens in one specific instance on one specific game. I could be wrong though.
  6. Bump. Another user replied to my original thread, experiencing the same issue on a 7850, which is he said was based on the same architecture as my card. It appears we have a pattern.
  7. Giving this thread a bump. I've tried a few more things and nothing helps. I ran a GPU test using FurMark, and my GPU capped out at 84 degrees and 50% fan usage. It's showing an idle temp of 37ish. I suppose that's maybe a little hot, but probably not enough to explain the BSODs, especially since they only happen for me in Pillars and only on the inventory screen.
  8. Well, it looks like it's definitely video driver issue. But the question is, how to fix it? I've uninstalled and reinstalled my video drivers several times, and it never fixes the issue.
  9. Alright, WhoCrashed gave me some good info: Crash dump directory: C:\Windows\Minidump Crash dumps are enabled on your computer. On Fri 4/3/2015 4:50:06 AM GMT your computer crashed crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040215-18688-01.dmp This was probably caused by the following module: atikmpag.sys (atikmpag+0xB848) Bugcheck code: 0x116 (0xFFFFFA8010E6A4E0, 0xFFFFF88002CB1848, 0x0, 0xD) Error: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\atikmpag.sys product: AMD driver company: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. description: AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver Bug check de
  10. BSODs can be a bit tricky. My reccomendation is to get a BSOD viewing tool (e.g. Bluescreenview), which should help you to analyze the error dump. You may especially want to look at the error code and then look it up on the net. Sometimes this already points you into the right direction (e.g. faulty drivers or faulty memory). If it's the drivers, good luck finding the right one. I once had BSODs due to installing some driver for some relatively minor component and only identified the cause because I remembered that the crashes only started around the time I had done the installation. If it'
  11. I've never had a problem with any other game. My GPU is made by Asus, but my motherboard is a Gigabyte.
  12. Good thought, but I don't believe that's the case. The crash happens all the time, whether my computer has been on for hours or if I've just booted it up in the evening. I just bought a new PSU, and the fan on it is working fine. My computer gets good ventilation, and I have a couple of "extra" fans installed. I even have one of those gigantic Zalman fans on my processor. The people I game with complain about how loud my fans are over Skype. And again, I play a number of games that I would consider to be a bit more graphically intense than PoE, including MechWarrior Online and Heroes of the S
  13. Not that it was supposed to, but the most recent hotfix (4/3/2015) didn't fix the issue either.
  14. As the title says, bringing up the inventory screen results in a BSOD for me. Here is a link to my previous thread: http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/73526-game-crashesblue-screens-on-inventory-screen/ Since then, I've updated my BIOS, uninstalled and reinstalled the game and my video drivers, messed with various other BIOS settings, and updated the game to the most recent patch. Unfortunately, the crash still happens. In kind of running out of ideas here, which is too bad because this game is amazing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
