The single thing that would make you happier with POE.


Recommended Posts

Okay,

 

I thought about this and many people have loads and loads of positive and negative comments to make based on their experience with the Beta. I've put it into perspective that in most areas of the game there is a healthy debate where people are disagreeing with each other. The developers won't be able to implement sweeping changes before release but they will be able to implement a healthy amount change and I'm sure they are paying some notice to the discussions.

 

It'd be nice if there was a topic where people could share the "ONE" area of the game that if enhanced would make the game more enjoyable to them personally. Please don't comment on the suggestions of others and just share your own personal suggestion politely without saying why your suggestion is better than somebody else's.

 

NB: try to elaborate a little bit on your point by saying how that area of the game doesn't currently satisfy you and how it could be enhanced, as briefly as possible of course.

 

Here goes:

 

 

I'd like the 2D art assets area to be beefed up as it currently feels a little light and the character/item screens don't look very attractive; mainly item pencil sketches to be implemented, and character/inventory screens beautified with 2D paper dolls. This for me brings an element of nostalgia to POE and reminds me of the old IE games; it would certainly make me feel happier.

Better pc models and use them as pc icon as an alternative to portraits.

(The game already feels a lot as a spiritiual successor to IE games. Heck, even Dragon Age felt as a spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate for me).

I was being pretty serious! :biggrin:

 

Well, one area it is, then. Surprisingly, perhaps, but I'll go for exploration and encounter design, including its reward incentives.

Character creation:

- feats. perks etc.

 

- some change to stats:

Might: melee damages

Resolve: concentration and heal

Dexterity: accuracy (which would be/feel critical for range)

Perception: maybe some %crits??

 

With some meaningful tiers to them. For instance if you get one stat to 20, you get a neat perk àla Arcanum.

 

 

- Having more say on your starting skills for some classes: druid, priest etc.

I don't think every priest is just as good as any other priest in one spell or one category of spell. 

 

 

- and a shop ending character creation where you can buy your starting equipment.

Mechanical improvements to the combat, mostly lots of small light touch ups.

 

Runner up: Far more detailed and accurate character panels/item descriptions.

 

Honorable Mention: Seriously tone back the poison/dot effects.  Either make dots only effect stamina not health (preferred change), halve their damage, or halve their duration.

Oi, don't compare that piece of **** to Baldur's Gate. :bat:

Baldur's Gate was pretty bad. Play BGT without any AI mods(which is a waste of time, tbh) and the difference in quality going from BG to BG2 is pretty startling.

 

Currently playing BGT-BWP with SCS right now and without the enhanced AI and encounters, the BG section would be pretty boring.

Reactive fish AI.

 

 

But seriously - Larger, more seamless, more functional, more aesthetically thematic UI, especially item pop-up windows and main screen control buttons (camping etc). It could be almost a straight rip-off of BG/IWD and I would be much happier than I am now.

I'm afraid we're going to have to put you down, old boy.
