To minimize eversprawling speculation threads, I decided to make this one. I put links from information from Josh Sawyer about new mechanics and other interesting stuff.

I do believe we'll get more detailed updates for what's new in Pillars 2 by the devs themselves soon enough, but untill then we can use these and talk around them.

Fell free to link any other info I might (probably) missed!

- About racial bonuses & godlike types (From Fig comments section, contribution by IndiraLightfoot):
1. Are racial bonuses going to be changed?
​2. Will there be different types of Godlikes? (Wael, Skaen, etc)
Feargus: Racial bonuses are not going to be changed, and (2) For right now, there are not going to be different types of Godlikes.
 
- About party size (From Fig comments section, contribution by IndiraLightfoot):
Faergus:  I can say the party being five people is something we will stick with.
 
- About system requirements (From Fig comments section, contribution by PrimeJunta):
System requirements unchanged from Pillars 1 (sorry for not providing a link or a copy-paste crom the original post but it's lost in the 2k+ comments in Fig and I though it was important).

"In most circumstances, party members can grant bonuses to the main party member performing an action. The math is a little complex, but the end result is that nothing is really redundant. It the very least, you’ll gain a marginal bonus if multiple party members have points in a skill."

 

Reminds me of that injured wolf in White March. Iirc you could not heal it, if you had Field Triage on a companion but not MC.

I just asked Adam, and he said it is the one called "End game save".

And on racial bonuses and new Godlikes:

 


Got some questions.


1. Are racial bonuses going to be changed?


2. Will there be different types of Godlikes? (Wael, Skaen, etc)

@Baramos (1) Racial bonuses are not going to be changed, and (2) For right now, there are not going to be different types of Godlikes.

@Sedrefilos: Feel free to add my info and of course others to your OP. That way, it's even easier for people to see the known info (It will be a bit of work for you, though. In my case, just add fig links).

Just an idea, if you have the time or the inclination, as it were.

I am willing to of course, it's just that the links so far are from the fig forums and when you click them it takes you to the top of the discussion, so one must navigate lienes and lines of posts to find it. Also, about copy-paste posts (which is better imo because one can see directly the information) they take up space and I wanted the OP to have just easy links so one can see the title, click the link and voi-la.

If I find a way to do it as to be easy I'll definately place info from posts directly to the OP. It might be a way but I'm not familiar with this advanced technological stuff :p

If you know how to do it and you're willing to show I'd appreciate it! :)

Perhaps you don't need those links then. Just copy and paste the essence of my posts, for instance, and add this at the end (Source: Feargus, Fig).

Wonderful, Sedrfilos! :)

 

Just add my info from post nr 3 too, since it's pretty important: PoE2 will have 5 party members instead of 6, and they will stick with that decision (Source: Feargus, Fig).

- STREAMING: Feb. 1st live streaming Q&A: https://twitter.com/WorldofEternity/status/826258400774287360

 

 

Do we ask our questions during the stream? Anyways, here's some of mine:

 

  • Will we still have the QoL feature Follow Selected? (I actually refunded, on Steam, Tyranny because this was missing)
  • Will the formula for spotting hidden objects remain the same as PoE1? I can deal with it, if so, but I found it awkward at best.
  • Will the main attributes still work mostly the same as PoE1? I found the attribute system is top notch, rational, and makes a lot of sense [especially for the setting]. Absolutely love it and hate for it to morph into something unrecognizable from the first game.

Via twitter or during streaming. Also in Fig comments. You should say "it's a question for the stream" I guess. At least that's how others did it :p

Apologies if this is not quite right thread to post but a follow-up about importing save games.

 

Any official comment about whether incomplete save games can be in any way imported into PoE2?

[About 85% of the way through the main game, got stuck into the DLC then RL/work/study etc.... made 2-3 hr gaming sessions impossible.  And given the amount of time away, when I tried to return, found my cRPG muscle memory just not there anymore!]

 

I suspect the answer will be no official comment but don't hold out much hope.

:mellow:

Anyway, perhaps the new game will act as a spur to get back into the Dyrwood.

[Certainly prodded me to make my first post in over a year!]


- Project Eternity, Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera; quality cRPGs are back !

I'm 99,99% certain this will be a "NO" but you can ask this question to the Q&A today I suppose.
