  1. I got inspired to try a swashbuckler myself (thanks OP!). I tested out both paladin and rogue but am having more fun with the latter so far. Sneak Attack allows rapier to make significant damage, and dual wielding light blades makes attacking satisfyingly fast. What kind of character did you end up making, Thalion?
  2. I like the way you roll, supporting your favorite games like that! The big differences between the editions are outside the game; soundtrack files, wallpapers etc. Within the game the backers and pre-orders get only a few items, only one having other than purely cosmetic properties (the ring). So, not really missing much by buying the basic edition if you already have the extras in GOG. My guess is that you can't get the backer stuff in a newly bought game since backers had to pick where they redeem their backer code (GOG or Steam) and could only pick one.
  3. That would be the hotfixes: created companions' lockpicking fix and... what was the other one again... Anyway that patch fixes things that were broken by the earlier patch.
  4. There's more art in this thread than in all the tombstones of PoE put together. Thanks for saving my morning evensong and PrimeJunta :D I knew there was a reason I kept coming back even after limericking ended.
  5. Rogue would give the benefit of Sneak Attacks, which work when an enemy is flanked or otherwise hindered (no stealth needed). You'll definitely want to pair your swashbuckler with a good tanky friend (the first NPC companion you can pick up will do wonderfully) and attack enemies from the side while they have their eyes on the tank. This enables you to wear light armor - maybe only clothes, that can be enchanted to have some Damage Resistance. Très chic! Maybe throw in a pistol as the other weapon, open with a blast and then rush to melee with the tank. If you wish to face your opponents
  6. Barbarian is a cultural "other box" and doesn't describe what it it, only what it isn't.
  7. Well, it does say "spell striking" and the arrow touches when it hits. Sweet bow!
  8. So what should Obsidian devs now nerf to give us something new to start threads about? (Other than Ciphers, that's called already!)
  9. Cool, I'd love to look into it. Can you give me a pointer to the source?
  10. They are so very vulnerable and under threat that they write "kill all men" and "put them in concentration camps" on Twitter. Look up Erika's tweets (the offended person). That's the sign of vulnerability all right - openly advocating for killing the oppressors and receiving no punishment (even Twiiter didn't block her). But what do I know about oppression, I've been but beaten at work once some years ago. I drink my daily medications with privilege. I didn't mean Erika (I know nothing of them except that I don't like their tweets), I meant the people who suffer from the vilifying of e
  11. Thanks for answering! (Really.) Yup, I'm totally with you here. By which I mean that I understand your examples and I, as well, view with suspicion and distaste attempts at imposing beliefs on others. Where it gets trickier in my book is when we get to hegemony and vulnerability. To put it extremely simply, in a situation where one thing is repeated enough and conflicting things do not exist (or are vilified or are in extreme minority), this thing becomes de facto truth. It's the truth of the hegemony. Such a truth carries weight and is stronger beyond itself because it has the
  12. Weird thing that my comics, scifi and games continue to be full of good stuff. Well, some of them are rubbish, but no more so than they were ten or twenty years ago. What have your comics, scifi and games been converted into? I'd like you to ponder on what your cause here is. Why isn't it okay to criticize a content perceived in a video game, if one disagrees with it? We criticize PoE here at the forums all the time. We demand Obsidian to change this and that, do these and those things better, and sometimes call them to be embarrassed of making it buggy/too easy/too difficult/whatever. I r
  13. Kilts! Kilts are not revealing enough if you're a leg man. The point of a kilt is not in what it reveals but how it becomes. Then again, I think that of all attractive clothing.
  14. He said it himself that he chose to rewrite the limerick to "spare Obsidian a PR nightmare". So it was the Twitter comments which practically forced his decision. Also, the Twitter comments caused Obsidian to ask the backer to do something with the limerick in the first place. Yet they're "painted with way too much power"? Ask Mary Sue and PC Gamer then, they both ran articles about those comments and how they influenced "the offensive content" to be gone. I support free speech and part of that is that people are allowed to voice their opinions on matters, also when I disagree with them o
