Rubeck Posted March 4, 2016 Share Posted March 4, 2016 See, I started playing this game shortly after it came out and even progressed quite a bit, but then ran into several game-breaking bugs, such as a temporary rogue buff permanently giving me skyhigh attack and negative defence, a ton of skills not working correctly, being locked out of some quests when I shouldn't have been, etc, etc. Sure, the patches came and fixed those, but often also changed the way a certain skill previously worked for balance reasons, which sucked as it meant I restarted my game twice as much: once for running into a game-breaking bug, then another time because in a later patch one of my skills was nerfed badly or a broken skill that I hadn't chosen before (due to being broken) was fixed and buffed to high heavens, making it ridiculously attractive. So I decided to take a long break and wait until the game was more stable and the patches started to be just of minor things, like a few visual effects on spells not activating all the time, maybe a sound effect or two bugging out occasionally, etc. Then and only then I'd go back to play it (because it eventually got tiresome restarting the game all the time due to either another severe game-breaking bug or another skill that was nerfed/buffed with a newer patch). But here we are, much later, and the update notes for version 3.01 don't inspire much confidence. According to the notes, the patches are still implementing significant balance changes, as well as fixing severe bugs, such as locking players in a certain location, accidental deletion of items, equipment accidentally granting buffs they shouldn't grant, etc. ---------------------------------- So I ask: do you guys know if the game is now finally finished for good? Is 3.01 the final, ultimate version of Pillars, or at the very least the last one to alter balance and fix the really severe bugs? Or is it wise to wait another year or two to be safe? I will most likely only play this game to completion once, as it's enormous, so I really want to make it count and ONLY play the final, most polished version (it's not an MMO or online game, so the constant balance changes in particular are REALLY grating).I've already bought the game + expansions a long time ago and don't mind waiting if necessary, so please give me an honest answer.
