priests (and upcoming update, no more restricted spells, bonus spells based on deity !)

- rangers

- rogues

wizards

 

 

GAME MECHANICS

- action speed

- afflictions (old thread, newer thread)

backstabbing

MISCELLANEOUS

- beta worst builds (powergame reverse mode)

- console commands (it's not really cheating, right... ?)

- mod to add gold, and items on the merchant

- training dummies (how to spawn one with the console)

- walk toggle ( 'cause RP and implementation !)

 

 

SUGGESTIONS

Heh, I forgot a thread of my own (no shameless plug), about difficulty:

https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/94681-its-not-you-its-the-current-beta-on-difficulty/

 

I imagine that this thread may become interesting and useful along the way, when new patches get released.

Iirc the full list of inspirations wasn't posted yet, so here it is:

EDIT: Fixed typo in MIGHT (old img), and since this post is still occasionally being linked to, adding the updated list for v1.2.2 (22 july 2018):

Erm... Why do you need Concentration if you can't get interrupted anyways (looking at you, Courageous)?

Technically concentration is now discreet. One charge would eat one interruption. While during courageous you could ignore all interruptions, nevertheless of their amount.

But yeah, something is feeling redundant)

We need a thread to discuss balance of Inspiration for sure, as the Tier 3 Int Inspiration and Tier 3 Con affliction are unfamiliar to me :)

Afaik Brilliant, Enfeebled, Resolute and Energized are not associated to any spell or ability in the current beta.

Have found them in the game files.

EDIT: I had posted here the damage formula found by MaxQuest in beta version 2.

 

Now in Beta version 4 a different formula is used.

I have posted the new damage formula in a new post in this thread.

 

I do not know if the formula of MaxQuest was correct in beta version 2 and they changed the formula or if he made a mistake.

In any case we have to thank him a lot for many things, in this case for finding out that negative damage modifiers get inverted.

MaxQuest also found the action speed formula:

https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/95847-attackaction-speed-thread/

 

Its the first post in this thread and its really complicated, so the link should be enough.

 

MaxQuest had also a table with all weapons (damage, penetration, speed, weapon specific bonus, what the profiency modal does, . . . ), similar to the stat effect table he posted above.

I would like to post it as well, but I cannot find it at the moment.

MaxQuest, oh grand master of game mechanics :bow:, would you please grant your infinite knowledge to the dump masses and post the table here too.

The blights are 1H ;)

 

EDIT: Whoa, the elemental claws need help! I like the Fuy's concept, but if the weapon is that bad (and counts as 2H to boot, instead of DW!), there really is no point in playing one.

 

EDIT II:

 

ZOMG! https://twitter.com/jesawyer/status/959152394692001792

^That's what I like about the blights right now. I can DW them with a melee weapon and fire at speed. Let's not advertise it too much or they'll take that away from us :p
