  1. The new patch seems to have fixed it; either that or the expansion hadn't properly installed before.
  2. No, it should work from the saves you're using. I believe you get a notice that a letter has arrived for you, which opens up the quests/area. So maybe try traveling around the world a bit to see if it triggers the letter, then head to Caed Nua. I haven't seen that letter or notification, and I have travelled around the world a bit. I don't know if there's a specific area or event that triggers it though, so I'll keep trying.
  3. I've tried loading the auto Pre Endgame save, and various other saves, and I've travelled to Caed Nua and spoken to the Steward, but I can't get any quests or info about starting the expansion content. Do I really have to go wayyyy back to an Act II save around the time of the Temple of Woedica quest to get this to work?
  4. Think I've worked out the problem - I can't hit the f***er - keep grazing and missing. Need to work out why. All my weapons are exceptional, but the only thing that consistently gets through the defenses is Eder's Exceptional Estoc, prob cos it ignores a certain amount of DR. Edit: the problem is because my chars keep getting Terrified by the dragon and lose 20 accuracy. Need to get rid of that with Durance, I guess. Edit: finally got her. Used lots of Durance's prayer against fear, spread the party out, switched to weapons that ignored as much DR as possible, and potioned and spelled the f**k out of everyone. Still almost fully wiped, and both Durance and Eder are now maimed xD
  5. Dragons tend to have bad Reflex, and less than impressive Will. Hit them with spells which attack Will and Reflex, especially those which further lower some of their defenses. According to the guide book, its reflex is 91 and will is 87, still pretty damn high. :-/
  6. Thanks for the tips guys. I'll give it a shot when I get home from work.
  7. Any tips for taking out the dragon? I'm a filthy casual, but finding the fight really hard. I can get it down to about 20% health but with a fully wiped party. Party: Eder, Durance, Aloth, Sagani, PC (paladin), Barbarian.
  8. I'm casually wondering how the game length of PoE would compare to BG, BG2, Fallout NV etc. if it didn't feature the fast mode. I'm guessing it would be a lot longer, even though it's already long. Thoughts?
  9. Is there no longer a way to pre-order the expansion through the backer portal? Is there any other way? Would be more than happy to put down the $20 for it now, given that I know the game is good. Didn't want to before release.
  10. I know this is a troll thread, but I wish this game had less VO. Not joking. The writing is way better than most of the voice acting, and it's hard to read the stage direction stuff when the talking blasts past it.
  11. Kotaku's Jason Schreier and Kirk Hamilton like it so far, and go into some depth on the pros and cons. http://kotaku.com/were-really-digging-pillars-of-eternity-1693310820 (warning, mild spoilers)
  12. Looks like the RockPaperShotgun guy likes it. caps/italics are his
  13. No idea, but for Sid Meier's Starships, I only got my key from GMG a few hours before release. Thankfully that game is only like 500mb.
  14. More similar sentiments from Jason Schreier on GAF: and from Ian Cheong from Gameranx:
  15. More tweets from the deputy editor of IGN Finland. No specific 'good or bad' comments, but I think you can infer good things from what he says.
  16. Haven't watched Shevek's video yet, but my only suggestion is for anyone making a video along these lines not to completely **** over the game systems, whether they be imbalanced or not to your liking. That's what the fora are for :-p And if you just whale on the game's flaws on a newb-friendly video, it'll make people think the game is worse than it is.
  17. From the comments of the reviewer (I think?) at MMORPG.com http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/1029/feature/9510/Pillars-of-Eternity-Exclusive-Class-Preview-Part-1.html
  18. Just beat BGEE for the first time ... No way I have time to beat BG2EE before PoE comes out .... but do I start it? :-p
  19. Oh enjoy! Too bad there`s not much in the way of replayability there. But by Helm it`s fun the first time around. Agreed. Loved the game, but couldn't get any fun out of a second go through.
  20. Getting around to finally completing The Last of Us remastered, then might try the Left Behind DLC. Otherwise, finishing a run-through of BGEE and maybe starting a BG2EE play through if there's time.
  21. post your specs, plz. i7 860 (2.8GHz) GTX 970 12GB DDR3 RAM problem is not at my end
  22. My current two complaints based on 480: there are still occasional frame rate / performance hitches once every say 6 seconds or so, while moving the party about an area. and, there seems to be too much reverb on the voices. The volume sliders are awesome, so you can adjust how loud they are, but too reverberant - sounds out of place when you're outside.
  23. Someone mentioned it in the other thread I think, but the party selection / action barks are way too frequent. Hearing 'hmm?' three times in five seconds is fairly annoying, and that's only in a short demo ... imagine 60 hours of 'hmm?' 'aye?' over and over Other than that, looks like it's shaping up nicely. I actually like how the stronghold is looking, unlike most others. Hopefully there is a bit more to it than just bounties and managing the list though. Now we all need to spread the word of this game, so it sells and we can get more like these!
