I hope I don't need the latest patch to actually play this

Very nice indeed. But I am baffled, as I am not understanding how to start this DLC, nor do I seem to find any information on how to start it.

*shrug* I simply reloaded my first character’s pre-endgame save and went to do the expansion.

The first time you go to your ship after downloading the expansion you'll get a missive. If you're already on your ship just go ashore anywhere and get back on the ship. A good idea is to pop over to the Deck Of Many Things and see what they're selling, then when you get back on your ship you can start Beast Of Winter

Ok. 
Very sad, DLC is so short.
Island small :[ 
I still did not see snowfall :[
Main quest - 3 different time-lines just awesome!
New armor - cool, but i don’t see new robes :/
New "item for grimoire slot" sorry, i don’t play in eng. version - exactly what is needed for not a wizard class. (need more kind item in basic game)
waiting next DLC, good work!
Keep going!

Traps are very broken in BOW. End game level 19 party can't detect traps at all vs detecting them pretty much as soon as they came in LOS in base end game content.

Out of curiosity, what's the best PER score in your party?

Will Beasts of Winter be available for Linux? I only see Windows and Mac on GOG.

 

By now there should be Linux version too. And files do not seem to be corrupted :b

I kinda wish these expansion dlcs would be set AFTER the main game. As much as I loved the White March from PoE1, I wasn't a fan of how much it trivialized the rest of the game after playing it.

Trinket's abilities isn't powerful.
- Cast time and recovery time too slow.
- Area of effect  too short.

After you return to the backer portal, generate a Steam key for your season pass, and then enter it into Steam so that Steam knows you’re supposed to have access.

Thank You I forgot about needing to generate a key.

I really liked the DLC, found it a little short, and I'd like to see a true expansion after the main game. Loved all of the new armors, especially the Guardian's Plate, great for a White That Wends character. I was also hoping that the pale elf spirit, might have had a bigger role, she was quite interesting.

You get Harbinger robes at the start of the DLC.

trap are detected by perception

one 21 per character will always be enough

New DLC is cool i like it, too bad they dont fix beta bugs already reported before reach final patch, they focus on DLC/update timeline but not fixing existing bugs just hurt new people / new run playthrough.

Different people are working on the bug fixing. DLC team is a seperate team.

The text is kinda small, so it could be my eyes failing me but the current timeline image has "UPDATED 8/28/18" at the bottom. That would be in the future.  :blink:

 

Also mentioned this on the new update thread.
