Really ? only ranger class have new abilities in 3.0 patch. So sad.

 

That's what they had promised, though, is it not? They said they'd add abilities for Rangers and they did exactly that.

can people confirm that 3.0 in fact fixes the final boss fight so it actually occurs? i've been sitting on a high-level party for a while now waiting for it to be fixed (though I guess I can run them through the new DLC in the meantime).

The bug that made the clones/phantoms/illusions spawn without weapons, meaning that they'd attack with their fists for very low amounts of crush damage. This has been a problem since the game launched.

What about the Gift from the machine bonus bug? (it was not transfering correctly from exported games). Any possibility of it being fixed in saved games that progressed far beyond Hasongo?

That was only the case for Dichotomous Soul - which got fixed with the last patch.

Why hasn't this game fixed the double-click an item and lose your racial bug yet? Or the lose your item abilities bug? I would love to love this game.

Never experienced that. But on the other hand - I never double-click an item - so... ;)

I double click all the time, and a quick look at my current party shows everyone still has their racials except Mirke. So it's an inconsistent bug at least. Still, worth double checking the rest of my companions...

Wonder what changed for 3.0.20. Clearly nothing worth mentioning, just curious

 

 

Per social media discussion by the developers elsewhere, v20 and v21 were just a couple hot fixes.

Would be nice if that info was posted here too though. I'm not interested in following any social media accounts to get official news. Edited by protopersona

Well..... If by that you mean it's no longer possible to view the Spiritshift model in the inventory screen, then yes, it is fixed :w00t:

After this patch and these new Ranger Abilities, I think the whole class system is pretty close from well balanced (which is great given the potential complexity of a system with multiclass options).

 

In my opinion the only semi-big issue left is the low ressource pool of Martial Single Class.

With this, some of them feel a bit UP, or more exactly not very sustainable for long fights.

Not to say the Devs can't find a completely different way to address this, but according to the following thread, this opinion is well-spread :

https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/105895-the-martial-single-class-pool-poll/

Sorry for the whining.
Respect for the job done.
