You know what I wanna ask, don't you? ;) (hint: will there be a Sanguine Plate to go with our Sanguine Blade in any future DLC?)

Will the hilt texture for inventory version of the Watcher’s Blade be fixed for 2.0?

There’s been a thread open for 3 weeks and no indication from QA that a bug has been opened.

This is a really basic and maybe dumb question, but :

What does being a game director /producer entail? Are there any parts of the job that are especially tricky, or any parts of the job that are way different than what people would expect?

E.g. People might be surprised by how important people skills are in some tech support jobs.

With the first DLC approaching and two more in the pipeline, will the XP gain from quests, traps etc be rebalanced? As it stands, leveling up feels quite fast already.

Are community-reported typos being looked at for patch 2.0?

I hope they talk about balance improvements. Combats in general are too easy.

I just want one QoL improvement: please give me a UI on our ship where I can simultaneously access the inventories and paperdolls of all of my companions and not just those in my current party. PLEASE?!

I agree with this balancing. So the questions are:

1. Will Obsidian take another look at game balancing? Especially making it harder for high level? Currently, the only challenge I feel is only in the first island. After that, it's smooth sailing... Maybe except some Fampyr encounters.

2. Still related to balancing, actually, I prefer more editable entries related to game balancing in the override folder (modding access). Currently, we can only edit Armor and Penetration gain (scaling) per x level. Can we have more variables to edit in the GlobalGameSetting, such as damage multiplier per level, health gain multiplier per level, etc?

With full attacks, action speed bonuses, and double passive weapon enchantments, two-weapon style is far and away superior to one-handed and two-handed for most builds. Will we see some weapon style rebalancing in 2.0?

Should we wait only sidekicks in future DLCs or we will get high-grade companion?

Possibly not in the form of further speed nerfs, seeing as recovery is already way too long across the board.

Have the various history-import bugs been fixed for 2.0?

 

How many hours of content in the DLC approximately?

 

Will there be non-sword, non-saber weapons in the DLC?
