  1. Still no fix for AoE afflictions. Time to play another game.
  2. Hurray, thank you for confirmation that this is indeed a bug. Eagerly awaiting patch to continue playthrough with my rogue multiclass.
  3. Hopefully this is a bug; having just reached level 20 on my rogue/monk, this change diminishes my interest for finishing the game and DLC.
  4. This is still bugged Got to level cap and was wondering where this thing was, so I looked it up. To my dismay.
  5. My game has been getting progressively laggier (level 16 now) but it's usually been limited to the save/load menu. WIth 4.1, my blunderbuss user is causing incredibly choppy gameplay during combat - to the point that I'm secondguessing myself at times as to whether the game is autopausing off of some condition. Could this be related to the new floating combat damage numbers? Is there some way to turn this feature off to troubleshoot?
  6. Did some more casual testing regarding alchemy and crafted poisons. The above confusion happened due to leaving a fighter's accuracy stance on (oops). Poison accuracy starts at 20 and only scales off of character power level at a rate of +3/level, alchemy skill at a rate of 0.5acc/point and, seemingly, buffs that explicitly modify accuracy such as cleaving stance, exalted focus, deadeye, etc. +5% damage / point +2.5% duration / point So, at character level 20, with an average 10 point alchemy skill, that would be: 82 accuracy, +50% damage, +25% duration. Not terrible really, especially paired with blunderbuss.
  7. Sorry for the necro, but I felt this question belonged here: does alchemy currently affect [crafted] poisons in any way? edit: I tested it with two characters whose alchemy was 1 and 5 (impressive, I know!) The results are confusing... the accuracy for the higher alchemy went down? edit: I had the the accuracy fighting stance on for the first. woops.
  8. Right, I was curious about the actual attack roll for the weapon itself, since it would be using Fortitude. Sounds reasonable that it's just for afflictions. Darn.
  9. Rymrgand's Influence: +10 Accuracy with Body Affliction/Mind Affliction attacks ...does the above give standard melee attacks against Fortitude (Body) an additional 10 accuracy? Or only spells that inflict body afflictions?
  10. It seems MaxQuest indirectly answered this in his last post in the Attack Speed mechanics thread. Short answer: yes, the item effect stacks in this case. I think.
  11. Say, for instance, the action speed boosts on Frenzy (or Swift Strikes) and the modifier on the Chromoprismatic staff ? Or are they both considered active buffs, with only the highest taking precedence?
  12. Yeah, I had already looked at that page but the upgrades available aren't listed without having to go to each individual weapon's page. Both the Karabörü and Glacierbane both look pretty powerful at what they're aiming for (damage & buff-stripping). On a sidenote, it's disheartening to see just how many unique swords & great swords there are in comparison to, seemingly, any other weapon types. edit: oh, and sabres! Some weapon categories definitely got a whole lot more love.
  13. I was interested in making a berserker/devoted and was looking into possible weapons that take advantage of a high hit-crit conversion. I'm not particuarly set on a weapon style, though I would grudgingly admit that 1-handed style would make most sense. Top contenders would appear to be: Last Word - Amazing defensive weapon, 2 damage types, and more engagement targets. Rust's Poignard - Interesting weapon. Is anything available for reliably setting up Flanking w/ a Brute? Only one damage type Sungrazer - On-Crit Extinction Event; how much damage is this? Honorable Mention: The Willbreaker - Hit-to-Crit and Miss-to-Graze conversions on top of being able to run its Fortitude penalty modal to benefit Brute Force. Have I missed any notable weapons that better utilize and/or enhance critting? On a side note, has anyone ever run the numbers comparing overall crit frequency for dual-wielding(and additional chances for a critical) against the fewer attacks of 1-handed style (but with higher individial weapon crit rate)? I would assume it'd vary quite a bit from class to class, depending on accuracy values.
  14. It seems anything which someone deems fun and worthwhile gets nerfed into oblivion... Bought the game on release, only playing now, and the sheer amount of changes I see from in-game versus various guides is baffling.
