Can i change hard mode from "hard" to "PotD"?

Recommended Posts

First of all i would like to say thanks to Obsidian for my gamer's essence rebirth (10 years ago i lived by BG/IWD/NWN and sometimes NOX, then it was WoW and then family starts...).


PoE is super game with due atmosphere etc., however just now i faced a huge problem i dont know how to sort out (and to be honest im scare to accept the fact i will leave the game soon due to below described reason)...


Basically...IS NOT INTERESTING TO PLAY anymore after reaching of 8th level:

- difficulty: HARD

- party of 5 members: my elf-ranger (along with Mr. Wolf), self-made paladin, eder two-handed DPS, aloth (DPS obviously) and durance as a buffer

- level of my party: 9 (but boring starts from getting 8th)

- my location now is just below the Cliaban Rilag ruins in the Temple of Skaen

- im done with Raedrik's hold, Defiance Bay and all of the quests there, however not entered Twin Elms yet, Kaed Nua is 5 or 6th level but boring as well


Guys, colleagues...i dont even need to built tactics and (what is worse) using abilities...i just use one button/command "ATTACK" coz all enemies are dying in 2-3 seconds, no hard battles, no saves/downloads, no fun/thinking how to place your chars, just "Hack'n'Slash" style where all of my mage/priest spells are not necessary at all. Even boss battles are easy (last one was Waymund inside this temple, he died in 1 minute w/o any fireballs/stabs/shots and any abilities, it was just Eder's sable's and my Ranger's DPS along with Durance arkebuza...).


I dont know what to do, i love this game and the reason of my post not to boast how i'm good, i just want to save the fun for myself. The only way i see so far is to change somehow difficulty level (now i realise im idiot being afraid to start at PotD difficulty, but how could i know...).


P.S. My last more or less interesting batles was just before i went to Dyrford, it was 'headhunters' quests i received in stronghold, however even there i felt im losing interest to this game...

Another thing was Raedrik's hold...sleepless nights, 100 saves/downloads, 100 hits to my keyboard, thinking on tactics and battle's approach, maybe Kaed Nua "Ogres" level was also good, but now...now you know.

In order to change difficulty to PotD on a game you've started on a different setting, you need the IE mod.
