  1. Ok, so I know in an interview the dev director acknowledged that the current combat system isn't very immersive. However, the solution the devs are taking -tweaking the arthropod attack patterns to seem less robotic- doesn't, in my opinion, address the root of the combat system's issues. From my experience, the reason melee combat currently feels so mechanical and unimmersive is tied to the blocking system, not the insect attack patterns. In my understanding of arthropods (which was confirmed by peers more familiar with entomology), the mandibles are not only used for biting, but also for grab
  2. I don't feel like insects should be able to turn while in mid attack because it almost feels impossible especially when going against tons. It especially makes the bombardier beetle harder because every time it has its acid attacks it just keeps turning towards me then it hits me in mid air. I feel like this isn't suppose to happen and it's just a bug
  3. Combat against any of the larger creatures in this game is absurdly difficult. I enjoy a good fight, a hard one. I play Doom on Nightmare in my sleep and have beat Sekiro on more than one occasion. But the larger creatures here feel impossible. Poison arrows, smoothies, spike strips, armor, club II, parries...still it just feels like there isn't even a point to trying. Am I missing something? Is this how the game is supposed to feel?
  4. Can someone please explain to me why in turn based combat I will select an enemy to attack that is right next to my character and instead of doing this they f$&k off in a completely random direction so the enemies can just pick them off one by one? Also while on the subject how come the pointer mode on ps4 constantly breaks so you have no control over your party and on the best occasions they pi$$ off wherever direction they feel like often loading into completely different areas at a whim forcing you to sit through the god awful load times twice to get back to where you starte
  5. During radio free monarch, i decided i wasnt going to deal with MSI, so i killed Hiram to stop the MSI broadcasts and bolted from stellar bay with the guards hot on my tail like the badass space cowboy i am; i then completed the iconoclast missions and took the bay for them but now whenever i am in Stellar bay i am stuck in combat. Nobody attacks me because I'm cool with the iconoclasts, everyone acts normally but i can't interact with any NPC's. I have gone and done missions on other planets, generally tried to avoid the bay for as long as possible, slept, searched everywhere in the city for
  6. I've been playing now for several hours, died a few times, and am enjoying the game, learning the skills/perks/etc. Only two issues I noticed both deal with stealth. 1. Not sure when I am hidden. Am I missing an indicator or something on the HUD? When I'm in tall grass it fades so I can see through it. But it's also tough to know when I reach or PASS the edge of that grass and am now visible. 2. I kill a mob. The noise aggros a mob on the other side of a solid building/wall/etc. I run into tall grass and hide, or around another corner and hide. The aggro'd mob somehow knows right whe
  7. I have started a turn based game after installing PoE II with patch 5.0. My character is a chanter skald. Every time combat starts, my character all ready has 4 chants which means I can start casting invocations right away. Is this right ? In PoE I I had to do some chanting before I could cast any invocation. Being able to cast invocation at the beginning of combat make combat a lot easier.
  8. While fighting Jungle Lurkers in the Hohina Ravine on Tehiwai Islands I encountered a soft lock. My best guess is that Mage Slayer is successfully interrupting a spellcast but this is causing turn based combat to break. Unfortunately the combat log does not offer an indication of a spell being interrupted here, though it would if I was using the pet boar and still it would soft lock so long as there are spell disruption stacks. I have not encountered this problem before this point due to either luck or bursting down an enemy before or after their spells had been cast. This is on Veteran diffic
  9. KnockDown skills are only serving to delay enemies or to interrupt, nothing more. The enemy falls and raises on the same turn and still strikes as if nothing happened. Another important detail, the fallen enemy has the same deflection as if standing? Does it make any sense? Those who are fallen are not in a position to defend themselves, should have a penalty of 50% for attributes of avoidance as reflex and deflection. In my opinion who is knocked down should lose the turn and suffer avoidance penalty while on the ground.
  10. I was very excited to play the turn mode, after some quick quests, I arrived at one of the first challenging fights, Gorecci Street. In the Questlog appeared to be at the same level as mine, 3. At this point i have 3 characters. I started the fight, I noticed the astronomous amount of enemies, 7. I ignored mathematics and went up, got good damage and some few cures, but after several frustrating attempts I realized that it would be impossible by the mere fact of enemies ranged did not miss any attack, always giving more than 30% of my total health damage. In the flood, u cant reach in time the
  11. This is admittedly a very minor thing, but it can be misleading to annoying. While using the Turn-Based combat, just about every time I mouse over a target to check the chance to hit the character makes their comment about it not going to work. They'll say this even in cases where there's a 100% chance to hit and they'll be doing 130% damage. Not sure what the criteria is for them to say their comment, but it doesn't seem to make sense in a lot of the cases.
  12. Hello! I was recently doing some testing and I could not get damage shown to match numbers. I was under the impression that no penetration gave a negative bonus similarly to how damage bonuses, apart from lashes, are additive. I can not get the numbers to add exactly but it seems that no pen uses a .25 multiplier to base damage, then the game takes the .75 penalty again to reduce bonuses additively before multiplying for a final damage total. Using my monk/barb here are some numbers: 14.6base +.03+.2+.5+.15-.75 = 4.7 game Calculator= 16.498 Negative Reduction to bonus,
  13. The interface for changing the ai is "unoptimized" and it takes a few minutes to make a small changes because I have constantly move things one input at a time then re-adjust slider. Wondering if there is a file location to make my own faster.
  14. So, just a couple minutes into Beast of Winter and it looks like you can keep modal abilities active even when weapon u're holding is not the weapon that can use that modal ability. Here i have the option to Rapid Shot (pistol modal ability) while having rapier and dagger. Aloth can use his scepter abilities even if he swithces to arbalest. BTW Eccea Arcane Blaster is still broken and doubles the amount of projectiles (which is the only reason i was able to kill that annoying new dragon in this comp). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cgCechNlKBWK_4BeG41EvnafPSQLhlee
  15. As you can see on the screenshot taken prior to combat Xoti's Dismissal targets every undead in AoE except for Fampyr (same thing happened minutes ago during first encounter with local inhabitants, pointing out that this Fampyr named Zulka is not some kind of boss that should not be affected by spell, diary says that Fampyrs are lvl 8 creatures therefore lvl 18 Xoti should pop em in industrial scales with that spell). Even if we assume that upscaled Fampyrs are equal or higher lvl than Xoti they still have to take true damage on cast. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1eKsdraCyVicvBdj63TRfUN5Yy
  16. I recently finished my first run through the story and enjoyed it just as much as POE1. I'm currently playing through on PotD and focusing on tweaking the AI scripts... It's making the already enjoyable combat that much better. It got me to thinking that I would love to have a DLC Arena, separate from the story, where we could build custom parties and test different AI scripting strategies against endless waves of random enemies. It seems like it would be fairly easy to build (many other games do this) and would keep me playing over and over. If this is already in the future plans, t
  17. From time to time Amira's wing stops working. The attack animation goes on without problem, "projectile" launches but it never reaches the enemy. In combat log there is no entry for those attacks at all, as if Aloth did nothing that whole time (unless he casts spell, then corresponding entry appears in log). Bug occurs randomly, after some period of time (or after some action performed) it fixes itself. It appears that it fixes after you board your ship and land somewhere (but simply leaving and re-entering location won't help, neither will switching location, because on screenshot you can see
  18. During 2 of my latest walkthrough i've noticed that there are moments when FPS drops from the cliff in combat. Luckily the reason was easy to spot : for some reason every now and then Serafen's shots cause FPS drops. I've encountered this bug in The Hanging Sepulchers, and just a minute ago i got that bug again. The moment Serafen pulls the trigger (doesn't matter what weapon he has arquebus/pistols/blunderbuss) and the hammer hits the primer (or whatever that part is called on that flintlock firearms) and the sparks show up the fps drops (simultaniosly with the sparks appearance) and stays l
  19. Player Character freezes during combat after attempting and failing (abandoning) to perform an action from another class, most likely, that of the enemy. For instance, Marauder might try casting a spell or chanting. After abandoning action, the character becomes unresponsive until death or reload.
  20. So my first character in POE 2 is your, typical good guy, he helps everyone and generally tries to please everyone. I'm currently on good terms with all factions, even the Principi pirates and my problem is, I can't find anyone to engage in ship combat. From my understanding, all NPC ships are part of one of the factions, but if I'm on good relations with all factions, no one will attack me? I managed to get attacked by a slaver once but that was it. I don't want to attack pirates either since I want to stay on good relations with all factions (if that is possible).
  21. Is it possible to be close enough for an enemy to be revealed on screen, and still have a chance to stealth? Or is the only way to sneak up to an enemy (without abilities), is to pre-stealth and assume an enemy could come up anytime (which slows the game too much doesnt it?) edit:I realised if you have autopause on when enemy spotted, it gives you enough time. If this is turned off, theres no way you can do it unless youre always walking. However there are still times when you could be walking, have auto pause when enemy detected on and still be in combat before having a chance to stealth.
  22. Hi, Yesterday I noticed for the second time that enemies can become untargetable and keep you in combat, requiring a reload. Clip of this happening: https://clips.twitch.tv/PricklyStylishWebSmoocherZ Loving the game so far; thanks! poe2diag.zip
  23. I can not initiate ship combat anymore. I sail up to a merchant ship, click attack, hear the battle music, and no combat happens. I keep sailing and hear the battle music. I have tried to attack multiple different ships with the same results. Seems unaffiliated ships are the main issue. I can double click on ships that are not unaffiliated and initiate attack.
  24. I'm not too excited about the whole ships and ship combat lark, I mean i'm glad it's there just for variety but I really want a story that is much more intense than the first game, some good drama parts like with Yoshimo in BG2. I want to see some really hard fights as well. Even in Veteran/Hard or whatever it is called, I want some difficult fights. I remember the early days of BG1 the fights with... Mulahey and Davaeorn were really tough, I want some bosses like that. 'Normal' guys but really tough. I know it's probably because i just sucked at the game they were hard because now i understan
