Looks like the Chanter + Barbarian multiclass combo will be called Howler: https://twitter.com/jesawyer/status/867574277083721729

Sawyer also mentions that one of the barbarian subclasses is named corpse-eater... also something about needing sufficient supplies on your ship or your cannibal  crewmembers will go wild... (https://twitter.com/jesawyer/status/867465172339703808)

 

 

Fampyrs! ;) At least that's what I'm thinking. Would be a fun thing to play an entire party of undead.

 

My priest of Berath wont like that... no no she wont!

Some Aloth payback on Pallegina there (reference to an earlier vid of Pallegina trying to poke Aloth with spirit blades), heh.

 

Whatever that blobby enemy is, the devs certainly like using it in that testing sandbox room that we've seen them use.

Yeah, I thought it was interesting too. The part about IWD especially struck me as true. For me many of the DnD games are completely impenetrable, combat is frustrating and impossible, because I do not understand its principles. I do not know when I make a right decision or wrong one. It's not a learning curve, it's a learning wall. You either brought tools to climb it or you stay right there and can't move on.

 

And I think a lot of Josh Sawyers love for balancing stems from the fact that he likes challenging gameplay and wants to provide that to players. If you do not fix balancing errors, you can't make a challenge for the people who know the rules in and out.

Why do I have a feeling its a polpovir?

 

 

 

Well, the ingame description of their mouth sounds a heck of a lot like that of a shark, or maybe a deep sea fish (which seems to be the original inspiration), so, I can see them deciding to go with a hammerhead shark style head to further emphasize the sheer strangeness of it.

I have a slight hunch that we probably won't be spending an inordinate amount of time in knee high water...

 

But I've been wrong before.

All I'm saying is, they came up with a wading animation for a reason.

It doesn't look like a Polpovir at all if I look at the ingame description:

It looks as if some blue-footed, soft-tissued something stepped on a marble. Ouch - we all know how much this hurts. Only thing worse is to kneel down right onto a lego brick. ;)

Given the floating corpses and (I seem to recall) wading through thick sand, I think knee high water might be something we do from time to time. I think we're very unlikely to actually swim though.

As someone who never play tabletop D&D game, I can agree with Josh. I remember having to restart games after couple hours as I would find out that my character just wouldn't work. It happened even in Baldur's Gate 2 (1st one I played) which all things considering was quite a cakewalk.

A shark spiritfiorm would still be awesome, regardless if it's literally a fish out of water.

 

That said, I agree that it's very unlikely we'll actually swim or even submerge entirely. All of the situations that involved swimming in PoE1 were dealt with using CYOAs.

 

I do recall one of the Fig updates showcasing wading through sand as an example of environmental factors that would affect combat. For the floating corpse thing, it seemed much deeper than knee deep, more like chest deep water, unless that's just how the animation starts.

 

And injurai has a point that all we have is a crop of what looks like part of a hammerhead shark shaped head, or per boeroer, a soft tissued something stepping on a marble.

 

editwhiletyping: I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but look closely at it and you'll notice that theres the pixel grid of a visual media editing program. So, this isn't a 3D model (though whoever did it, did a good job of giving the appearance of 3D), it's most likely a piece of concept art.

For some reason, I remembered something about a hammerhead shark look on the polpovir... Thanks for clearing that up!
