Tomice Posted September 12, 2015 Share Posted September 12, 2015 (edited) TLDR summary: Even when not looking at the attributes (which we can't change for any voiced companion and which might be good or bad), the devil is worse than any other companion considering gameplay. Pros & Cons for the devil: - can't switch armor, is stuck with a variant of breast plate (without any unique trait or advantage) - is therefore stuck with unenchanted armor when most of your other companions already wear uniques at that point - can't use food, drinks or drugs (potions work) + Immune to disease and poison That's it. The minimal, situational advantage of poison/disease resistance replaces the far more useful racial traits of other companions. Yet we still have to live with all the disadvantages. There are no extra attribute points, no other unique traits, no special skill. Considering all the downsides, I would at least have expected her to be free of armor recovery penalty (zero development time!). She would have offered so many opportunities for unique gameplay, but there's nothing. Her story is cool, but her gameplay is very disapponting. Suggestion: Make her armor 0% recovery in the next patch. It fits with her "living machine" trait and would compensate for her armor-related drawbacks. It would be a very quick fix (changing a value for a single item, maybe change the the text for her unique trait). There's no unexpected consequences or balance issues (she would only be a bit quicker in her actions, nothing out of the ordinary) If you think 0% is too much, remember that other armors have "second chance" and other useful, unique traits. Also remember that her current racial trait cancels itself out (having at least as much negative as positive effects) - meaning that she actually has no racial advantage right now !!! The resulting extra attack speed would have to compensate for both the lacking unique racial trait as well as the lacking unique armor trait. EDIT: She even has two stat points less than all other companions (those two you get for your race)!!!
