Deadfire Polishing Thread has been opened for 3 weeks by now, and we gathered enough feedback for a dedicated poll. And the idea behind this poll is to filter through the community-originated fine-tuning suggestions and cut those that didn't make it past a certain threshold of unanimity. After that, the resulting list could be used as some sort of survey data, and maybe it will get attention from Obsidian, or it will be of use for modders (if these suggestions are moddable) Deadfire Polishing Poll (link to google forms) (google login is required to keep 1 submission per person account) (your emails are kept private and not shown to other participants or poll owner) P.S. Results will be posted in this thread. There is no set end date for now. But approximately the poll will last 7-10 days unless otherwise noted. Edit: the Poll has ended. You can check the RESULTS: HERE Or if google analytics is opening slowly, here are the screenshots: General stuff: Classes: Keywords: Bugs:
Pillars of Eternity 1 has achieved a pretty good state by v3.0+. And several bugs aside, it looks that Deadfire is slowly headed in the same direction. But at the moment, there are still a range of spells, abilities and effects that are what we can call: trash (or trap) options. And also there a few things that are either a little too good, or allow to bypass certain design limitations. And it's understandable that comparative power of talents/abilities/effects/etc in practice is not always the same as initially expected, due to overall complexity and changes in mechanics, plus emergent synergies, opportunity costs, variety of encounters, asymmetry in enemy defenses, armor threshold deadzones, max health 'policy' and so on. So the idea is: to come up with a collective set of fine-tuning adjustments to cut-off the least impactful ones and to end up with a list of community suggested changes. So if Obsidian decides to do any balance changes for v5.0.0, they could use this as some sort of survey data. And of course there is also hope that some of these could be modded. The workflow is gonna be as follows: There will be a preliminary list of suggested changes. And you can: a). suggest to add a change; b). suggest to remove an already added suggestion; or provide an alternative adjustment. Just don't forget to argumentate your opinion. After awhile, I'll make a poll based on these. When the poll is ended, a final list will be made. And it will include changes that have passed a certain threshold of unanimity. The preliminary list of suggestions (to start the discussion) is: Edit: Based on the first round of gathered feedback, here's the rev2 of the preliminary list: Edit: Here's the rev3 version of the preliminary list: Edit: The poll is up and in a separate thread: here P.S. Big thanks to Phenomenum for assistance and theorycrafting on the initial list. P.P.S. Hopefully I didn't forget/miss much)
