Larian games are a trainwreck at release. Enhanced edition or bust.

I don't know about that, the game is plenty playable. The nice thing is there is quite a bit of replay value, so the second time you play you will get a smoother experience with some nice fixes.

I gotta agree with this as well.  For the complexity of the quests and their possible ways to complete them, I don't think this game launched that bad.  Honestly, there's games with 1/5 of the complexity that release with a good amount of bugs of their own and Larian has been pretty apt to release hotfixes and patches so far.

I believe I've put about 18+ hours in so far and am still on the first island.  I don't know if that's playing slow, but I am trying to complete all the quests I can, scour every inch of the map, etc.  After 18 hours, I will say, that I am constantly impressed by the level of detail in this game.  It astounds me how many different mechanics are running in the background and how smoothly the game plays.  It impresses me just how good this game looks from every angle and the amount of voice acting.  I will also agree with those on the forums who say that the story is good as well as it's definitely held my interest and even some of the side quests has been very interesting to play through not only due to the puzzles/combat, but also the addition that it gives the overall story and lore.  

 

I will also say that some of the quests left in my journal that seemed to be bugged have been fixed with the patch and I have not run across any game-breaking bugs, let alone any bugs that are hampering my game that I've noticed.  So far, with this much time in, I will say that this is a solid title and contender for Game of the Year.  It definitely seems like there is a lot of good press around the game which is great because this game deserves recognition.  Anyway, will stop gushing for now, but this is my party now, currently at level 7.

I made my own multi class rogue aeromancer and it sortof works. The biggest problem being dependent attributes, if you are a rouge you are kinda stuck with daggers, otherwise you can't backstab. I had to sink a point into strength as well because all the leather armors are ugly.

 

A lot of classes benefit from tier one skills from other classes provided it's governed by the right attribute. More options is often more important than more damage.

I prefer Classic Original Sin over Enhanced Original Sin, to be honest.

Why is that?

I don't like the changes they did to balance things and whatnot.

DOS:EE went down a lot in my estimation when it crashed during the final bossfight and I had to do go through that whole boring chore again.

I tend regard final boss fights as final. If they aren't interesting I'll just give up and let the game win.

I have to say I'm enjoying D:OS2 more than I did D:OS. There's a bit of a Divine Divinity vibe to it and the game play keeps drawing me back. There's less goofiness and more of a heroic role-play feel this time around.
