  1. I quite like the relatively restrained look of lots of the unique items in Deadfire and Pillars 1. They look practical rather than the bizarre over-sized weapons/armour you often get in other games. I like the game's relatively realistic aesthetic. That said, the odd aura/glow might help satisfy both camps here.
  2. I'm personally not a fan of +1AR/+1 Penetration for enemies on Veteran, as it changes the symmetry of mechanics that applied to me in Veteran: both enemies and the player are playing by the same rules. Indeed, this is generally a point Obsidian have made in both Pillars 1 and Pillars 2, noting that it is only PotD that alters opposing stats. That said, I'm glad it is an easy switch with mods for those that it appeals to even if I take the opposite side and counsel against this change being the default on Veteran.
  3. Isn't this a fairly major change that should be optional? I always enjoyed the Veteran difficulty in PoE 1 and 2 for having standard mechanics but more difficult encounters.
  4. Sent a saved game to the bugs address (as file too large for upload) with this issue.
  5. Sent a saved game to the bugs address (as saved file too large) with this issue. Sometimes need to click a new NPCs and wait 30 seconds or so, then loud noise plays every time option menu is selected (whether via escape or click the options button).
  6. I have the same bug - the main character has +5 Spell Resistance buff from the Lantern, the others have +10 Spell Resistance Lantern buff.
  7. It's the Altar on the same island you need to go to on the 16th for the Sanguine Blade, not the cave.
  8. Cheers, look forward to hunting those down. The Sanguine Greatsword is NE of Crookspur, in the NW sector of the map but much further south than Nemnok's Island.
  9. The Sanguine Greatsword is available from an altar on an Island in the NW of the map. You need to visit the altar on the 16th of a month and wait until the sword appears during the ritual. Any hints on how to find the Blackened plate and its helm are much appreciated!
  10. Good question! Whispers of the Endless Paths looks like it does lower damage, but can do a lot more as it rolls two attacks against its original target - the normal attack plus an AOE (the latter of which can hit other enemies too). A quick field test should demonstrate both the "double hit" on the original target and the AOE. Hope this helps.
  11. One way of addressing this might be to slightly accelerate the pace at which multi-class characters get access to abilities of a given power level, but to still cap them at power level 7 access? This would let them use more of their ability choices on interesting mid level abilities while keeping the highest level abilities for single class characters.
  12. Sympathetic to shifting some of the passives around a little, particularly to make multi-class choices more interesting (as these characters spend longer at lower power levels) as long as it doesn't make multi class characters too strong.
  13. Adding my voice to the others here. I was playing on Veteran and the fight was still very difficult indeed - I had to cheese it by drawing the Titan away. Multiple Greater blights using scirocco makes for a fight that goes from "under control" to "everyone taking damage and essentially stun locked, unable to respond" in alarmingly rapid fashion. Both that ability and the number of greater blights might be an issue. Ability is generally manageable, but only because other packs only include one greater blight at a time. Might also be an issue later in the game if there are packs with
  14. I like the Keyword use with abilities, makes things transparent. However, as noted above by others +1 penetration makes it difficult for players to see and judge the impact of during play. I think it might be better to give a small % damage increase, similar to Pillars of Eternity. Also thumbs up for adding more passive abilities and giving players more options on how to build their charcters!
  15. BB4 felt much better than the previous beta versions, particularly the introduction of passive abilities. A sprinkling more of these might be good, and perhaps tweaking a few to have more transparent effects (the various +1 penetration elemental traits might be easier to understand for players as a straight small +% to damage?). - With the extra abilities for single class characters, I wondered if dual classed characters could get access to power levels at a marginally higher rate than at the moment, without quite catching up with the single class characters and still capping out at power
  16. Seconding both the general concerns above about recovery times being too slow, particularly in heavy armour, and the specific concern on armoured grace being nerfed. Long recovery times make the game unresponsive and reduces fun - your PC might have just attacked/cast a spell, prompting an epic wait to be able to use a potion/rapid recovery/spell to respond to changing conditions elsewhere on the battlefield (for example, if an ally is injured/charmed etc). I'd much prefer things to be closer to the pace of Pillars 1. The combat slider doesn't really help here, as this is a balance/fun
  17. Enjoyed diving in to the beta so far. Clearly a product of love and care, so the below is intended constructively! First impressions: - Characters feel far more samey due the loss of the Universal Talents. This removes much of the fun/creativity from leveling up and creating characters. Adding my voice to similar feedback from a number of other players. Multi-classing alleviates the problem to an extent, but missing out of fast/top tier abilities just to have some character build choices is a shame and multi-classing still doesn't have the breadth of talent choices that POE I had. Ther
  18. I agree that characters feel far more samey due the loss of the Universal Talents. This removes much of the fun/creativity from leveling up and creating characters. Adding my voice to similar feedback from a number of other players. Multi-classing alleviates the problem to an extent, but missing out of fast/top tier abilities just to have some character build choices is a shame and multi-classing still doesn't have the breadth of talent choices that POE I had. There were all sorts of interesting ways you could build characters in POE I (explicitly noted by design a few times as something they
  19. Shareable link on google drive to upload the files I can't upload directly here: hope this works, please let me know if it doesn't! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B71fbjrz5Oz0NHdWNmd1MGlOUEU
  20. Hello Obsidian, I've had a largely smooth experience with pillars of eternity since launch, had my first crash to desktop during the opening logos today. 1 file attached - afraid your uploader doesn't allow me to upload most of the filetypes in the error folder, sorry! output_log.txt
  21. Hello rheingold, This is listed in the 3.04 patch as a fixed bug list. I think the patch is due out very soon (this week?) but you can download the 3.04 beta if you want to play with this fix now.
  22. Thanks for the update Aarik D! I've tested things and they're working fine with additive bonuses - apologies for any players I panicked unnecessarily and your other testers. Sorry again and thanks to you for your clear communication. Keep up the good work.
