  1. I noticed that Story Mode specifically states it has the same enemy composition as Normal Mode, is that true for Easy mode as well? Or did they change the number of enemies and what type of enemies you see in Easy mode vs Normal Mode?
  2. Is there a permanent log of what has been said to me in the past in the game? I am at a part in the game where I think these "ghosts" probably gave me a clue on what order to use these certain objects, but I can't remember what they said.
  3. So I am in the temple under Gilded Vale. I came to 3 Bells, and I figure that the "ghosts" I saw earlier in the temple probably gave me a clues on what order to ring those bells. The problem is, I don't remember exactly what the text said, and I cannot find anywhere where it was recorded for me to read it again to figure it out. So am I missing something, is there a way to see what has been said to me before? I don't want the order of the bells to be given in this thread, I just want to know if I can see what has been said to me in the past.
  4. I am going to be playing on easy because I am not very good at these games, but still want to play it. How stressed out do I have to be with character builds? I am trying to figure out how to build a Fighter tank, and I look at all the attributes and all of them seem important for a tank as well. So I decided to not drop anything below 10. This is what I am thinking I am going to have the fighter Tank as, and I plan on having 2 of them in my party. I have it set so I can choose companions stats when they join the group, so 2nd fighter to join I plan on doing the same build. Mig: (10) -Figured extra damage is not important for a tank, and I get Fort from Con Con: (14) Extra Health and Endurance seem very important, plus the increase in Fortitude Dex: (10) I get Reflex from PER. Wasn't sure if I needed more action speed or not. Should I put points into this? PER: (16) This felt very important, the ability to interupt, having tha accuracy to hit, and the reflex to move out of the way all seem very important INT:(10) Already getting Will from RES. Increase AOE and duration didn't seem all that important. Is this something that I am fine with dropping below 10 and putting more points into RES or something else? RES:(18) Has 2 of the 4 defense stats (Will and Deflection), plus concentration to help avoiding interupts. Seems highly important. I figure if I am 2 tanks, and at least 1 healing class I should be ok through out the game. Does that sound right? Any thoughts or suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated.
  5. Looking to find out what classes I should pick for the front line Tanking, and what class for healing? What stats to go with on those classes as well? Thank for any help.
  6. You need to change your thinking. The barbarian that can cleave everything in sight is intelligent on how to wield that sword to cleave everything in sight. You can still be a dumb barbarian, you just have to change your preconcieved notions about the stats in this game, and not compare them to old games.
  7. It is said that Steam holds ~80% of all digital sales for PC Gaming, GoG basically confirmed this with Witcher 2 shortly after release of that game. Assuming that Steamspy is somewhat accurate, this would put total digital sales around 321,000 +/- 27,000
  8. It's autopatched, not optional. How many times do I need to say this? It's Steam that does the autopatching, not Obsidian. Use GOG and you can choose yourself whether you install a patch. Don't try to reason with this guy, it would be like trying to reason with the SJW's.
  9. I don't have butthurt, I just don't see why Obsidian couldn't have made their position on speech and censorship clear before I wasted my $50 on their game. Now I have it sitting in my library and I can't play it because they forced an unethical game patch on me. If someone was offended, they could've created an optional patch for those people, not screw with my game. This is why I dislike digital distribution. Had it been a physical copy, I could've returned it or sold it, but on Steam I'm out of $50 and don't have a game I can play. 1- There is a mod that puts the original limerick back into the game 2- I cannot believe something as petty as this actually prevented you from playing the game that you already paid for. This makes you just as bad as those who were offended by something so petty. 3- Obsidian didn't do anything unethical.
  10. Again, this argument has absolutely no rational basis, the opposite is true. The pure possibility to use buff spells outside of combat do NOT make it mandatory, nor even possible to use them for every encounter. But with all spells being possible to cast at all times (which makes more sense from a character agency and immersion point of view anyway), you can decide to buff before an encounter or you can decide against it (either for conserving spells or simply not feeling buffs are necessary for this fight). With buffing spells prohibited out of combat, you simply cannot make that choice. It is a reduction of choice, nothing else. Nope, completely disagree. Pre-buffing is a reduction of choice during combat, that is less spells that you need to take into consideration during combat. Pre-buffing takes away from tactical choices. Pre-buffing is a no-brainer, and all it does is take away choices during combat, which in turns makes the combat even easier because of less decisions to make. Can you please explain how having more options results in having less choice? I sure don't get it. You seem to base this view on the strange assumption that 'pre-buffing is a no-brainer', a mandatory decision you have to make just because you can, yet I have yet to read a single reason for that. Pre-buffing is the obvious no brainer, it was the far superior choice to make that Not Pre-buffing wasn't really a choice in the first place. Just because some fights can be easy, doesn't negate the fact that a lot of fights are going to be obviously hard so Pre-buffing was the vastly superior option to take that the other option is basically negated and really isn't an option in the first place. Pre-buffing takes away tactical choices during combat, it makes it so you have less spells/buffs/whatever to choose from during combat, which means that combat is even easier cause you have less decisions to make. {Do I cast this buff spell, or do I cast an offensive spell} as compared to your idea {Cast offensive spell}.

  12. No pre-buffing was one of the better improvements they made over the IE games. When there was pre-buffing, there was less tactical choices to make. Now there are more tactical choices to make.
  13. I'm not commenting on the politics of any particular discussion, but if you think a third party created an injustice, don't let them create another one by denying you the enjoyment of the game on top of it. Whatever politics abound, it's still a game, you own it, and it would be a shame if you let someone else deprive you of its use. I know tempers are running hot on this issue, but I just hope you reconsider and at least give the game a shot. Hell, even if you really love it, I'm not saying come back and praise the game. Keep complaining if you want, but at least get the use of the product you've purchased. :Cant's Dutch uncle icon: It wasn't a third party that created the "injustice" though. It was Obsidian, who decided, to pursue a policy of censorship and displayed themselves as anti-free speech. It feels wrong for me that my money has gone to a company, whose values, are entirely against my own. I am a strong proponent and believer in free speech and dislike censorship, which is a polar opposite to the values Obsidian displayed in this situation. It feels wrong for me to play a game, knowing that it was produced by a developer who does not believe in the right of free speech and easily caves in to special interests just to make a quick buck. You do not know what the Right of Free Speech is. Everyone involved exercised free speech in that situation.
  14. I was thinking to myself "What the heck is Bloodborne?". I keep myself up to date on RPGs, so I honestly thought I somehow missed a major RPG that is releasing soon. But after reading the replies here, looks like it is a PS4 exclusive. I don't even own a console at all, so that explains why I have never heard of Bloodborne. I highly doubt the game releasing at the same time as Bloodborne is a big deal, completely different games on completely different platforms.' Also, Witcher 3 delaying had nothing to do with Bloodbourne.
