Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Part 2


Recommended Posts

Omg one thing I noticed about romances was how similar Lann's was to Casavir's from NWN2. The difference is the latter was written by someone who hated this type of content with the sole purpose of making it as unpleasant as possible, and Lann's is 100% legit. He literally says at one point "Let me protect you", "stay behind me during combat". First of all, what the hell? Second of all, buddy, you're an ARCHER. Calm down. 

At some point you get to talk about kids and if you choose the "grr kids bad" dialogue option, the game will keep triggering this exact same conversation until you say something else. Lol.

Pretty basic overall but some parts were mighty weird.

Sorry Nenio, your final quest isn't happening this run. That place is a slog.

Anyways, I'm approaching the end of the game unless it pulls a Kingmaker and has a hidden half act.

My game bugged out and characters were moving through walls, if not for that and the guides I would never finish this quest, and Nenio is my favourite companion mind you.

with the crusade, 'cause the rules is hidden, am not even certain what is busted. we no longer get a prompt to upgrade forts to bastions. is this a bug or is there a max number o' bastions for logistics five? we got a fortress upgrade option and from the patch notes am now suspecting such were a bug. am also thinking that were the point we stopped getting fort-->bastion decrees.

our current run is likely borked in multiple different ways and am not actual expecting retroactive fixes. might need to reload a save from the start o' chapter three.

HA! Good Fun!

So far as I could tell, there was a bit of a hold over from KM; x number of forts unlocks a bastion, y number of bastions unlocks a fortress.

If memory serves, I think I had three bastions and one fortress at the end of act 3

Have you looked at his AC?

have not seen it mentioned in patch notes, but as far as we know, ranged weapons, when mounted, is not functioning in tb mode. am mmaking this observation 'cause were our intention to stick lann on a dog and have him rush forward into melee range and snap shot the stuffing outta everything. with excellent ac, lann is an ideal frontline archer.

HA! Good Fun!

Man I'm glad I'm waiting at least six months before giving this a go.

It seems to be an improvement over the previous game, so that is good at least.

Damming with faint praise I see. 

55 DC is insane. For laughs I looked up CR 30 creatures from PnP (who typically have mythic stuff already) and a lot of them couldn't even make those saves. You'd have to munchkin to a crazy degree or outright cheat to be able to reliably survive that.

They did some neat things, looking forward to playing it myself. Although I dislike that they severed some of the mythic paths from the true ending, especially the legend path (I wanted to play that one)... although I guess it kind of makes sense.

Oh, I'm definitely looking forward to playing it....after they fix the game to actually work. Personally I'm torn between Azata or Trickster.

Probably one of the biggest mistakes is not having Legend be a starting path. Being able to reject becoming a mythic creature at the beginning would be nice.

This seems to be some kind of cultural thing. I could be wrong, of course, but that's what I'm inclined to think.

I cannot comment on WotR, but P:K also had stats bloated to a ridiculous extent. The game also cheated against the player quite a lot. This was mean-spirited, ungenerous and completely uncalled for. Now, my question to you all is: have you seen anything similar in any other cRPGs anywhere? I have not. Games should be neutral, but to the extent that they divert from neutral, they tend to divert so that the benefit is on the player. P:K's approach was totally the opposite.

It would be too overpowered as it significantly boosts your XP gain and doubles you level cap.

But I agree from a RP aspect I would have liked to take that path from the start... I'll probably go Aeon, as I heard it has the best interactions, but only if I figure out what the renegade counter is.

The most important question about Romance in RPG  is are their aesthetically pleasing companions ( translates  to being hot )  that you want to Romance and are they interesting with their companion quests and personal views ?

Those are always the most important factors when I pursue optional Romance arcs 💞
