I JUST found out you can charm-back "charmed" companions!

Recommended Posts

my mind. it is blown. i can see the code now, the 1s and 0s.

anyway, started PotD today after finishing it on hard and i am having a blast. this is the way the game was meant to be played. i just recruited durance and encountered the blight near the wooden hut, and it's the first enemy in the game that can charm you AFAIK.

he charmed eder, and i just up and had aloth zap him with his low-level charm spell and my god it charmed eder right the hell back to normal.

tl;dr i'm all excited cos i thought i knew most of the game's stuff, good to know i don't.

I'm so glad someone else has discovered the joy of the Mind Control Wars. :D

I feel stupid for not thinking of this. Now I won't have to wait for the effect to wear off every time!

The counter-charm is very cool, but it was in the IE games, so Obsidian can't exactly take credit for the idea. Making charm and dominate otherwise undispellable, though? All theirs.



If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

...but it was in the IE games...

:mindblown: I didn't know that. Oh how I hated waiting for it to wear off.



Exactly. Mind control was a thing back then.


Now it's just an annoyance that wears off quickly. Characters using reloading weapons may not even have a chance to perform single attack when dominated.



Once i charmed my dude back but he still had charmed status effect. He was allied to me but controlled by AI. Anyone knows if it's intended?
