And no Arcane Archer fixes either apparently -- still hopeful those are in the works (cause the lack of scaling on the Imbues is a serious bummer).

"Salvation of Time cannot be empowered anymore."

 

ohhh, does this mean I can no longer use spellshaping to adjust the radius of this spell for free? (since it doesn't PL scale)

Not sure if it was intended for this release, but I'm getting the new ship combat UI with missing strings for all of the text.

Out of curiosity, what was the issue with this in 4.0?  I've used Citzal's a bit, but haven't been paying close attention to the recovery.  Does the fix make it faster or slower?

I hope a fix is coming for Pallegina randomly deciding to leave the party because you offended her and the VTC.  Just happened to me in 4.0.1 shortly after receiving the missive from Llengrath that starts the Forgotten Sanctum, while sailing the seas and doing nothing else interesting.  Save game was a pre-endgame save state where the version of the save has been slowly updated since 1.0.

I think a priority needs to be fixing the loud Drake sound at the dig site and Poko Horo. It's nearly unplayable unless you beeline it to the Drake. Of course you can just turn off the sound...but Deadfire has such great sound :p

  • Only one Wall of Draining can be active at any given time.
  • Random encounters in Neketaka are guaranteed to appear after a certain number of transitions.
  • Reworked ship combat UI is no longer present in build.
  • The game no longer crashes on machines using Radeon graphics cards when the Beast of Winter destroys the bridge.

Crash fixes good (and making the random encounters less so, so they actually happen, also good).

 

Prioritizing nerfing Wall of Draining over *fixing* fundamental issues in the new sub-classes -- less good.  (N.B. -- don't get me wrong, the Wall of Draining thing was OP and obviously not intended, but still, harmless in the grand scheme of things.  OTOH you have 2 new sub-classes with major bugs in their core mechanics and nothing.)

WTF "fixing" Wall of Draining when you haven't addressed the fact that Arcane Cleanse apparently cannot be resisted and has no visible to-hit roll against any kind of defense, so we can't at all see how to block it (and Arcane Reflection doesn't work). 

 

At least give us that if you're nerfing Wall of Draining in a way that honestly makes no sense -- I mean, why can't I put 1 wall on a set of mobs over there, and another on the boss way over there?  You're basically nerfing tactical use for an attempt to fix something that is only broken in some corner case builds in a single-player game where, if we want, we can console our stats (!).

 

Some fix or info to Arcane Cleanse would at least balance this nerf.

 

Also - the fix for current bug for Clear Out / Clean Sweep + AOE Weapon like Whispers of Endless Paths or Citzal's lance.... i think it's not just recovery, it's the fact that each AOE hits in its own AOE.... is that working as intended?

Also - NO MENTION of the current bug for Clear Out / Clean Sweep + AOE Weapon like Whispers of Endless Paths or Citzal's lance.  That is *way* more game breaking.

This is indeed a very game breaking bug.

The good thing is: they wrote that they already fixed it (check the spoiler in the top post):

 

Attacks with extra AoEs (Citzal's Spirit Lance, Whispers of the Endless Paths) will now have correct recovery when used with attack abilities.

I think that's the whole point of Arcane Cleanse.

 

It mirrors the D&D spell Mordenkainen's Disjunction, which irrevocably dispelled and even disenchanted items with no save (and had a 1% per level chance of even disenchanting an artifact, which could attract the attention of extraplanar beings). like Arcane Cleanse it was only available at max spell level, and as such *really* had to justify being powerful over the much lower level AL3 Dispel Magic erm I mean Arcane Suppression.

 

Personally I think it would be great if Arcane Cleanse also at least blinked out or even disenchanted items, would make it ever more useful in high level fights. That's one downside of the per-encounter system versus the classic D&D style is that it's too afraid to make permanent or persistent changes to your characters.

That's one downside of the per-encounter system versus the classic D&D style is that it's too afraid to make permanent or persistent changes to your characters.

 

 

For me the biggest issue is that the tool-tip or mousing over the spell (Arcane Cleanse) doesn't give any clear insight into how it works or what it rolls against.  I've had it Miss against me (it did yesterday) but even mousing over the combat log did not provide clear detalis on what it rolled against to Miss.  I didn't even know Missing was possible for it before I saw the combat log.

 

It would be helpful for Obsidian to actually comment which nobody from Obsidian officially has done.

 

Plus, if they're going to keep it as 100% unresistable, at least some sort of telegraph or spell icon that makes is REALLY VISIBLE that Arcane Cleanse is being casted would be helpful.  Maybe there is one for mobs, but afaik the Sigils at Sigilmaster have no such spell-casting icons.  Plus in my testing the Sigils 100% resisted the effects of Writ of Sorcery (which should shut down all spell-casting) - it showed as being active on them, but the Cleansing sigil still kept casting Arcane Cleanse.  Shenanigans.   

 

(The way it is today, the Cleansing Sigil turns active and with basically no lag seems to cast Damper or Cleanse).

 

I have a similar issue with the Ooze megaboss attack that has Damper/Cleanse effect - maybe there is a really visible telegraph to it (like Doro's fireballs) but I haven't noticed it yet.

They have bigger issues than explaining one spell, when most of the summons and Vela don't work correctly and we STILL have modals for weapons we arent using. Plus the Forgotten Sanctum DLC doesn't even start for some ppl.

Just started a game in turn based mode and Eder doesn't get Constant Recovery as a free action like said in the description but instead it's launched automaticaly when the fight start .... . What is the point of a heal that only start a few round if it start before you're damaged? Especially since if you put your cursor on Constant Recovery in the skill tree it says "Free" so it should be a regular free action not something that trigger automatically at the start of the fight!

Constant Recovery already works like this in real-time-with-pause mode, why would it be any different in turn-based mode?
