  1. I play on PS4 and I am new to pillars. I am playing the deadfire ultimate addition. I like to start with a good Paladin (single class), a shieldbearer. A tank with a shield and mace. I’ve deducted that the attributes most beneficial to me would be; might, constitution, resolve, intellect. Am I correct, and what are the best numbers for those stats?
  2. Hi, I have been trying to make a Intelligence speech check. I have high Intelligence the check required very high intelligence. I have tried consuming different kinds of consumables that offered +1 to mind attributes like 2 Hour energy drink. For some reason the Intelligence and perception seem to be unaffected despite the use of consumables i. they don't move to very high from just high. Consumables that offer +1 always raise my strength to very high from high when I consume them so I don't see why the mind attributes are not being raised. Did someone else notice this? is its a bug or intent
  3. Hey guys, Is there some kind of mod or save editor that allows you to edit your characters attributes, since they can't be changed through a respec? Is the best way to do this by using the Iroll20s command in the console? I ask because if at all possible I'd rather not disable achievements but I can live with it if that's the only way. Basically the reason I'm wondering is because I started a new playthru on turn based mode and I'm quite enjoying it...but I didn't quite realize that the builds wouldn't translate as well as they should between real time and turn based. So I'd like
  4. Does an item with +1 int stack with an item that has +2 int for a total bonus of +3 int for example? What about inspirations? Do they stack? How about weapon proficiency modals? What among these things do and don't stack with each other type? Is suppression still around in PoE2 or will all items' effects stack with each other?
  5. Se each one of these grants +1 to an attribute, which you can simply adjust for in the previous screen of the character creation flow. E.G. I want my char to be from the White that Wends, which grants +1 perception, which I don't need, so I just press back, set my perception to 9 (which will be 10 after I select my culture), and move my attribute point to whichever attribute I happen to need. I never liked culture bonuses because they force me to make a decision between my stats and bonuses and the dialog I will get when playing the game. The system in deadfire solves this problem,
  6. Hello! i get frustrated every time i remember that physical and spiritual strength are inevitably related, The other characteristics included on the other attributed are more logically related, but physical and spiritual strength? Someone else bothers this? Hope this is changed. I had this idea:(sorry, cant avoid it :v) Might having two branches, one for physical strength and one for spiritual, if you have 16 might, you have 16 on physical and 16 on spiritual, you can relocate points from physical to spiritual and vise-versa, of course the bonuses on combat would be really small, but n
  7. The biggest issue I´ve always had with pillars 1 was the ammount of "obligatory" items required to pass at least most statchecks, wether they were in scripted actions or dialogs. You were punished by the game, if you chose different than an item with +3 or +4 attributebonus. Whats even worse, those items were rarely worth the effort, since they both exhibited useless or even downgrading second enchantments (speedpenality or spellbound) and occupy itemslots better used on other items/effects (bonus spells for example). However what makes these items so terrible is the fact that they ha
  8. New to PoE and I'm having a hard time figuring out which attributes are important for a barbarian. It seems like there is a lot of conflicting information about stats on the forums because they all support different builds and play-styles. Back in the day I would have just restarted a thousand times to try out all kinds of creations but I don't have the time or patience for that anymore. So if you don't mind, a little help to get me started would be much appreciated. This looks like a great game and I can't wait to dive in. So far I think I'm set on a pale-elf two-handed offtank barbar
  9. Hi all, I just started the White March DLC and really wanted to incorporate zahua into my party. I wanted him to take Eder's role as main tank. The thought of an ascetic tank was just too much for me to resist. The tank is gonna take a beating, so why not make him the guy who uses pain as a pathway to enlightenment! Furthermore, monk looks to have some pretty cool CC abilities that may be a bit more interesting to play than Eder's fighter class. Anyway, it's pretty obvious that using zahua with the attributes he comes programmed with wasn't going to cut it, as he was balanced around dp
  10. might 18 dex 15 Con 10 int 17 per and res is 9. Will this stats let you stand a chance during combat? So question is weapon choice? Should go for 2h or dual wield? Because of per and res, deflection is not that good. So comes the armor issue. Cloth or medium armor? comments, ideas, other build suggestions are welcome.
  11. The new Druid spell Natures Bounty increases might and perception permanent by incredible high amounts.
  12. Hi Dev team, Please help to fix the issues below: 1. Swamp slime is getting way more damage than it is supposed to. This essentially breaks the flow of the endless path exploration for me since these poor creatures fall like flies while the battles are supposed to be much more difficult: 2. When the attributes provide a negative modifier to a particular defense, the subtracted amount is X-1 instead of X. For example let's take a Dargul. By default it has 40 (Defl) 35(Fort) 35(Refl) 30(Will). Its attributes are: Per 12, Res 10 --> + 2 Defl Mig 10, Con 22 --&g
  13. Greetings, I just ran in to a bug with the game, where my characters attributes are ruined, http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/716413223222274622/0580A9B8A6ACA01CC1E6A98C7B0234E058557F8A/ screenshot of my characters attributes after loading back in to the game. Basiclly how it happened and what is casuing it as far as I can tell, I had Wild Leech used with my character, so I had very high stats when I saved, then I left for a while and now that I got back to play some my characters attributes turn in to that after a few seconds after loading in, when I get in and instantly paus
  14. Making a melee Wizard for hard + expert. I could really need some help not to make any terrible mistakes. The following post is my logical train of thought for making it maximum viable. Could you give me any advice or tell me if some of my decision making here is off? Race It seems that fire godlike and moon godlike are the only good choices here. Which one would you consider better? With moon godlike, you heal endurance 3 times per encounter at 75/50/25% hp. Seems to favor: Might (+Damage and benefit from the +Healing) With fire godlike, 4DR at 50% health and below. However:
  15. First, let me start off and note that there is most likely going to be some spoilers mentioned as I write this. The reason I'm still posting it in General Discussion is because this is a very general topic, but if someone is feeling particularly stingy today, a mod can feel free to move this thread to Character Builds, Strategies & the Unity Engine, despite the thread likely having nothing to do with any of that. Second, before I start, I expect to get some flak on at least some of the points, or possibly because of the entire thread, because I'm overly critical, and maybe some accusat
  16. These are what the current ability score bonuses are: Might: + all damage (spell/melee/ranged), +fortitude Constitution: + Endurance, + Health, + Fortitude Dexterity: + Action speed, + Reflex Perception: + Interrupt, + Deflection, +Reflex Intelligence: + Area of effect (all abilities), + Duration (all abilities regardless of physical, mental, or magical), + Will Resolve: + Concentration, + Deflection, + Will As a result most characters focus on might and int, except for a couple of builds. Why should all potent mages, priests, ciphers, archers, all damage dealers look like arnold sc
  17. Hi, I was just wondering - and my question is aimed at those of you who have already played PoE (backer beta or press release) - about good/bad choices of Attributes for making survivable characters. Let's discuss two characters - firstly a close combat character, then a character who is mostly out of CC but close enough to the fray to be hit by enemy AoEs and similar. How important is CON (with bonuses to health and Endurance) for you survival in both cases? Is it a small factor or a big factor? The attributes can be divided into three groups depending on what they give defense bonu
  18. Hello Fellas, I have a problem about PoE character creation. This problem could be my particular problem but still may help you when my problem is solved. I opened the game with great enthusiasm it was a good feeling I like the graphics and etc. The nice sweet memories of Baldur's Gate appeared in my mind. I always play with wizard so I watched videos how they created their characters, what they choose etc. Then I created a character it was Coastal Aumaua Wizard. I thought 2 Might would be good for damage. Then I proceed to Attributes section. This is where my problem starts. Which One
  19. For those (myself primarily) that wanted to try it out and see if our theory was correct, I have modded in our proposed attribute system. Might: +% Damage and +% Healing Constitution: +% Endurance and +% Health Dexterity: +% Action Speed Perception: + Accuracy and +% Interrupt Intellect: +% Durations and +% AoEs Resolve: + Deflection and +% Concentration This one I've actually thoroughly tested and it is working properly . It required a bit of troubleshooting to get everything correct. Download Link: http://www.upload.ee/files/4278808/sensukimatt516.rar.html Instructions (
  20. Here's a link to a (non Beta-specific) post I made about a new system for utilizing INT bonuses for AoE abilities. Would love some feedback. http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/67742-how-to-solve-the-aoe-problem-while-making-the-int-stat-more-compelling-and-int-characters-smarter/
  21. Greetings, all. Today we’re going to talk about the Attribute system in Pillars of Eternity. Traditionally, CRPGs have suffered from certain issues with character attributes that PoE’s Lead Designer, Josh Sawyer, believes detract from the character creation and gameplay experience – namely, the problem of certain classes being pigeonholed into pumping certain attributes to function properly, and the existence of dump stats. To that end, the attribute system in Pillars of Eternity is designed with a few fundamental design goals in mind: All attributes should be useful (in some way) for every c
  22. Hello all. As you probably know, there is currently a problem with area-of-effect abilities and INT - namely that the inability to adjust the AoE of certain abilities can actually be a disadvantage instead of an advantage. With really high INT, you sometimes end up in situations where you are hitting yourself with a negative AoE spell. This disincentivizes INT as an attribute - and disincentivizing an attribute is never a good idea when building RPG systems. Some have proposed a system in which AoE is adjustable. This is a great idea. And it seems obvious that they'll have to implement it
  23. GOD DAMMIT. I had this really lengthy post and then I accidentally closed the window. Okay, second try. It's time to accept that Might is not accepted by many players. I love the idea of an attribute system where every attribute is useful for every class, but many people just don't like the idea that mental and physical power are based on the same attribute. And I can understand why. We want our fragile old wizards who deal tons of damage. We don't want "muscle wizards", no matter how wacky and fun that sounds. There is a disconnect between the Might attribute and our understanding
  24. Pillars of Eternity is a Role-Playing Game. One would think that role-playing would be important in a game like PoE, and that it's systems would be designed around it. That is however just not the case with the attribute system. This thread will be about the attribute system and it's effectiveness in making a character from a role-playing perspective. It will not be about attribute balance. It is also aimed at PoE's lead designer, Josh Sawyer. I'm going to compare Obsidian's Neverwinter Nights 2 attribute system(d&d) to Pillars of Eternity. I'm not saying the former has a perfec
