IIRC Josh mentioned most tooltip information is procedurally generated by the engine. BMac would likely be the guy for this stuff.


Ok, thanks. I will try to contact him (at least he should be able to implement Int-updated abilities duration).

I agree with every part of the opening post, but the lack of attribute values in the tooltips in particular is just weird.


Weird but true(

I especially like the descriptions (mostly in equipment) where it's not clear whether the damage or effect is being applied to the player or the enemy.

That's something that Deadfire inherited from PoE1.

 

 

I still remember that Comtessa's Cage, lol!

 

PS:Yes, in some cases the descriptions are not clear. With some abilites you get a gist of what it'll do but can't really gauge performance. With experience you learn, but that may add a few unnecessary(for some people) hours.

SO WEIRD!!!!

The abilities that are suggested to be important to a class in character creation are not too accurate for the most part, imo.

I also don’t know how anyone is expected to play this game (besides story/normal/no challenge mode) without digging through the forums for help.

At least inform us during character creation that we’ll definitely need perception in order to hit something... Across all classes pretty much. Sheesh.

Yeah, I would like to see this resolved as soon as possible as well. It's one of those things that doesn't look like a big thing but which enforces the impression that the game did not get to the level of maturity to be considered a polished game.

 

PS: please do something with the description of Armored Grace as it has nothing to do with the actual effect of the ability (same for the pets that have the identical effect)
