I'm crossing my fingers for an interesting Barbarian subclass and maybe a Fighter one.

Barbarian is my favorite class but both Corpse Eater & Berserker really didn't appeal to me. Mageslayer was decent but not using potions turned out to be really annoying over the course of the game.

Fighter could use an interesting class because right now Devoted is kind of a no-brainer because it has good buffs without any drawbacks (if you just pick sabre) maybe with the exception of the 2 mega bosses (who seemed extremely difficult to beat and might require specific weapon changes).

 

Also looking forward to do my third run with all DLCs after doing 2 vanilla ones.

I love you guys with all my heart.

 

PS: Looking forward to the free fourth archmage.

Exactly. Infinite ships would be a plus for who like ship combat, but a disappointment for who dislike it.

 

I hope the developers won't force it on us.

 

I cringe at the idea that whenever my party sail there is a good chance to be bothered by a random pirate.

 

Not to mention that to people like me that do not enjoy ship combat mechanic...a battle on the sea is simply :

 

1- Skip the whole minigame by simply keep going straight and ramming against the enemy's ship

 

2- Start the battle and hope you are not facing a ship with a crew of 2+ levels in comparison to your party.

 

 

its pretty easy to outrun them if you stick to deep water, you can also tell what level they are if you mouse over the ship. further all ships pause on the map when you stop your ship, and they are always visible on the map if you have removed fog of war. lastly there's only a couple times i couldn't disengage without incident that i can remember and none on my last playthru

 

the ship mechanic isn't ideal but i'm fine with it, we can't graft sid meier's Pirates! mechanics into an RPG unfortunately

If you get the palm sail, you can outrun basically every time. I get it early on for convenience.

Well, the good news is, it releases at 7 pm local time for me. The bad news is I'll be at work until 1 AM.  :banghead:

I got it in my list, yet steam says "not installed". Anyone knows how to force that darn client to install it?

Steam client is awful when it comes to DLC.

 

What I do that sometimes work is un-check the DLC, then re-check it. Sometimes that kickstarts steam to start downloading it.

Yeah, the unchecking rechecking sometimes works. Not this time though. It simply sits there, doing nothing.

 

Edit: So now, out of the blue, it could be arsed to download.

When you wrote this the expansion wasn't released yet.

And this was two minutes after it released.
