BB4 felt much better than the previous beta versions, particularly the introduction of passive abilities. A sprinkling more of these might be good, and perhaps tweaking a few to have more transparent effects (the various +1 penetration elemental traits might be easier to understand for players as a straight small +% to damage?).

 

- With the extra abilities for single class characters, I wondered if dual classed characters could get access to power levels at a marginally higher rate than at the moment, without quite catching up with the single class characters and still capping out at power level 7?

- The pace of ability use/combat feels a bit too slow now. Armour penalties are a bit too onerous and recovery times a little too high. This isn't just a "pace of play" preference - it also makes the game feel a little clunk and limits your ability to respond to changing conditions (damage, characters being charmed etc). Getting closer to Pillars 1 in this regard would be ideal.

- For a number of classes/abilities "Power Level" doesn't really do much, as noted above. Appreciate tweaking this is difficult, but it means for some classes "Empower" is almost always just used for getting extra abilities, removing a potentially interesting tactical option.

 

Keep up the good work Obsidian, thanks! :)

@Doppelschwert:

 

Eh?

 

I would do the same with less passives if I was min-maxing. The situation of active abilites hasn't changed at all. Only now you are not forced to take competing actives as a single class character because you already took all passives so far (if you had any to begin with).

 

Now the situation is FAR better for single class characters and the level-ups are far less boring and frustrating. Also more passives add more build options which is always good in my book - even if a lot of players won't touch several of those new passives.

 

My internet sucks so I'll need to wait another 3 hours for the patch, so this is for the most part baseless conjecture, but I have my reservations about all the passives being added being such a good idea.

 

In games like this, I always pick few active abilities and a lot of passives, so it felt refreshing to me that I was actually forced to pick up some actives once in a while, or had to multiclass to get around this.

 

Before, you could take several active abilities for different situations / strategies and use them on a situational basis without losing on anything on the passives side; you had a greater toolkit without sacrificing anything. The ressource pool worked as a way to let you choose the power that was the most useful, since you had several choices by default.

 

But now that you get access to enough useful passives (?), it just makes more sense to make characters that excel in one or two specific powers and load on all the supporting passives, which makes for very one-dimensional characters, and makes the ressource pool feel limiting rather than empowering; in principal, it's the same as the spell levels from PoE1 (they also had a common ressource, casts per spell level), which only feel like a choice rather than a restriction simply because they don't allow you to sacrifice spell slots for passive effects.

 

I also think the incentive for going multiclassing has been diminished greatly by this move, which I think is disheartening; I'm not even sure if there is a benefit in multiclassing for the character concept I had in mind now, but again, I'll have to look at the changes in details myself first.

 

At the same time, the change probably increased what you can achieve with min/maxing, which is not necessarily a good move in my book either.

 

All of this might all be just me being scared of change, but I'll get back to this thread once I had some time with the patch.

I think this might be you overstating how powerful the new passives are. I'm sure there are some situations where picking up another active ability is worse, but in practice my experience is that the vast majority of passives are not useful for my specific character build, so over the course of the backer beta I get like one or two of the new passives and put the rest into existing actives or existing passives. At least from my quick cursory look at some classes, an example power level of passives is like:

single weapon style, two weapon style, two-handed weapon style

OR

bear's fortitude, snake's reflexes, bull's will.

 

I mean... I *guess* you can just pick up a couple low-level active abilities/spells and spend the next 3 levels picking up all those passives, but in reality you'll probably pick on average one at most from that row of passives. They offer opportunity for diversification and a little fine-tuning of your character, but generally not much more.

Ok, I had a look now and I'm relieved - they mostly added new talents instead of making the class specific ones accessible to everyone, and I'm totally fine with that. I like in particular that each class gets a custom selection that is taylored to its class abilities.

 

I'm convinced now that the passives they added are a great addition to the game, although I have to say that they deviated heavily from their initial announcement that shaped my pessimistic outlook.

Boeroer, you are right and wrong at the same time.

 

In fact, if you WANT min max, you pick one or two active abilities and the rest of passive.

 

Problem there is no more full list and simply less passives than before.

 

So, that's was there is this feel of "passives garbage remains". (Snake reflex, disengaging etc.) (and the true reason of my thread the other day : because I waiting true additionnals passive. Where I put my Point ? I want to hesitate you know ?^^ Hesitate when I choose x or y.)

good

 

performance has, in general, improved

graphics look cleaner and more polished

ship combat has improved

single class accelerated power acquisition

 

bad

 

most o' the gameplay "improvements" are not

a few old bugs persist and new bugs emerge... as one would expect from a beta.

 

ugly

 

nothing genuine ugly

 

gonna start with (not) ugly as the current beta is darn close to release-worthy in our estimation. sure, is some bugs which cropped up in the recent build which we would hate to see in the release, but the current build is more playable than many releases we has played in the past decade.

 

the good includes, first and foremost, improvements to ship combat.  am finding with the recent release we need be much more involved in ship management than were the case with the earlier build.  fire-jibe-fire is no longer a default tactic and changes to the costs for move actions is much appreciated.  sure, is still a mini-game, so am not expecting a full-featured, tactical, turn-based ship-to-ship combat simulator.  ship combat is a useful gold sink with moderate fun and unique tactical gameplay inserted into a crpg. good.

 

additional powhaz for single class players is a good.  multi-class weapon havers is still outclassing singles in terms o' pure damage potential, but the additional rate o' power acquisition is a major boon which significantly levels the playing field. playing single class no longer feels like voluntary self gimping. however, there is the possibility this change will result in High level single class eventual oustripping the relative efficacy o' multis. is tough to make such guesses based on only  having access to mid-level gameplay, but more is typical better, and by high levels, single class will have much more. 

 

more subtle good is the noticeable improvements in performance is also appreciated.

 

bad

 

the passive abilities is bad.  the passives is either o' negligible usefulness, or they is functional essential.  bad.  tanks is gonna choose weapon and shield.  most weapon-focused single and multi-clases is gonna choose a weapon style.  etc. as with poe, functional no-brainer options has been returned to the franchise in spite o' the fact the earlier beta builds showed how such stuff were anything but necessary.  paladin single class tanks, for example, were extreme effective in earlier deadfire builds.  weapon-focused single and multis who did not take fighter has nevertheless been doing impressive dps w/o the advantage o' weapon styles to bolster.  yes, the caster classes suffered from a dearth o' passives in earlier beta releases. as such, providing the casters with a few useful passives were probable a good idea. provide those classes which suffered from a paucity o' passives were a good idea, but the more universal addition o' passives is wholly misguided.  

 

likewise, the reversion to might is a mistake.  return o' might is resulting in multiple bads.  the current op multis is those combos which exploit the passives or low-level abilities o' paladins, monks, barbarians, rogues and whatnot to be resulting in often ridiculous damage outputs.  not take more than a little imagination to be seeing how the damage potential to sages and witches and paladin/_______ has just increased substantial with a return of might.  again, is a situation wherein a fix were not genuine needed, but is nevertheless being applied. 

 

and yeah, resolve is no longer a clear and obvious dump stat for all builds save tanks, but such were the case when might were switched to strength.  instead o' strength/resolve, we now got might/resolve, with capped attribute scores made necessary by the obvious exploitive potential o' high resolve players and Foes.  a player votary tank with easily obtainable +30 resolve at mid-high levels will no doubt choose clarity o' agony to halve the duration o' already brief adverse effects. 'course is not so funny when +30 resolve deadfire enemies is laughing off any effect with a duration.  additionally, does anybody genuine think artificial caps is good game design? nevertheless, caps is made essential by the might reversion.  is not as if Gromnir is fundamental averse to might-- we liked poe might.  the thing is, the switch to strength were reasonable given the functional dump status o' resolve in poe.  the switch back to might does not appear to be similarly reasonable.  as with passives, the problem being fixed is less concrete.

 

bugs is also bad.  a few oldie bugs remain in spite o' fact they has been 'round since first beta.  ixamitil plains scholar background is still borked, becoming arcane apprentice (+2 arcana) following a reload. seems minor, but one would expect the fix would also be relative simple.  converse, new bugs such as the one involving two-weapon fighting has significant impact on gameplay. nevertheless, is still a beta, so bugs is an expected bad

 

regardless, in spite o' the badness o' the return o' passives and the ill-conceived implementation o' a return of might +resolve fix+attribute cap, am largely happy with the current build.  the change o' casting times hasn't altered our gameplay overmuch save for our casters run out of spells even quicker than they did in earlier beta builds. am still able to interrupt foes in spite o' quickened casts, though micromanagement necessarily has increased-- smaller window o' opportunity. is multiple minor changes am needing familiarize self, but overall am impressed with deadfire progress.  

 

HA! Good Fun!

 

ps kinda miss the previous sinister voice set compared to new.

Beta is really good now, starting companions though still suck, rerolled two chars into multiclass (of course) with the starting money and game got enjoyable, even one level lower. Didn't find any bugs except the souldbound item, though maybe I didn't understand how it works.

 

Looking forward to playing, if I hadn't backed, I'd buy it now. Too bad we still have to wait a month.

-Sleight of Hand being so tightly coupled to Stealth feels strange, since most of the other skills can stand on their own. (I.E. you don't need stealth to disarm or place traps.)

 

-Riposte has the same issue now that it did in Pillars 1- it procs maybe once a fight. This feels like a holdover from when Misses were 1-49 rather than 1-24. Any chance of Riposte being upgraded to include grazes like in Pillars 1?

I'd agree with that. Pacing of combat does feel better overall, but it's still a little bit clunky. I don't really like to use the combat slider to speed things up, because that speeds up animations as well, meaning that everything look like a timelapse video. Therefore, I'd still prefer the default combat pacing to be a little quicker than it currently is, especially for physical damage classes. I will admit that this might change as you get better gear (with recovery & action speed benefits) and skills in the final game.

 

Ship combat does feel better, but as others have noted as well, I mostly end up trying to get into a good shooting position in the very beginning and then just cycle through the same actions every turn, which seems a little boring. It also means that if my ship and the enemy ship are equally well equipped and staffed, the combat outcome mostly appears to depend on who gets more luck with the RNG.

 

Otherwise, definitely excited to see all the improvements. This is looking very good already!

• Polished graphics - the game is looking beautiful!

• Hair - I think hair looks better now. It's different, but an improvement.

• UI - The enhancements made to the UI, especially the Empower button, are great. I did find myself forgetting I had Empower in the heat of battle before.

• Passives for everyone - My only gripe here is that Ranger is still hoarding Marksman and Gunner. Otherwise I thought all of the shared passives were good choices, especially making unarmed combat an option for all.

• Resolve - Really glad Obsidian decided to try out affliction duration for Resolve. Might/Strength/Resolve is a situation where there's no perfect solution. The current meta doesn't gimp hybrids and makes Resolve less dumpable, which is good enough for me.

Hello,

 

I wanted to take my time playing a little bit before posting. I played through the game again almost two times now, and had a bunch of mechanics tries.

 

The good:

  • I feel really comfortable most of the time regarding penetration and armor. Now it doesn't feel such too much penalizing and on veteran difficulty choosing the right weapons and gearing towards adequate amount of penetration is sufficient and balanced.
  • I only tried Spells with the given companions, therefore priest and wizard, and casting times/power ratio in many cases seems adequate. There are numerous spells which feels useless, but that is due to the small number of cast times/combat.
  • Combat pacing seems ok too when you don't use any excessive abilites, modals for example. Enemies and characters are adequately slow, and I don't feel the arcade style gameplay I was experiencing 2 patch ago.

 

 The bad:

 

 

Weapon modals:

 

Previously I couldn't put a handle what's really wrong with modals and how should they be fixed. So there is a 'disclaimer' that weapon modals are situation and they are not essential to gameplay. This is where a dissagree. Weapon modals which makes a weapon typ unique, which - other than special enchantments - makes it desirable when building a character.

 

I have a problem with modals which target recovery time with penalty. With the current weapon recovery times and armor penalty, adding an extra penalty seems too excessive. 

I constantly disregard weapon proficiency because by the time I can swing my weapon for said proficiency bonus, the enemy usually dead, debuffed by a faster character, or I could use the said character doing something other than standing there doing nothing for large periods of time.

 

These modals should target actual attack speed instead recovery time. That way you get penalized, you will swing much slower, and overall you will be slower, but not that excessive amount, and that amount is controlled. You will be much more vulnerable to interrupts, but you will not feel your character will suck if you activate the modal.

 

Resouce management + empower

 

This is one of my main issues still. Too few resouces to use abilites, and cant be increased possibly (the pool) because of empower.

Empower is a cool mechanic if you use it to empower your abilities. But it sucks because you can also use it to recover resource. I'm thinking because of that, your resource pool is balanced to be small. In fact you have so small resource pool that it discourages the player to use high level abilites except if they are really really powerful.

 

Empower needs to be what should be. A resource to empower your abilites, and only that. + remove the 1 / combat restriction.

Your power pool have to be 4pt starting and 2 pt. / new power level.

 

I was wondering how should I make my case, and here is the answer: 

I am a lvl 9 single class rouge. I have hobbling strike (1pt, Blinding strike(2pt), and withering strike(3pt).

 

First case scenario(current iteration):

I have 7pt power pool.

I will use 1-2 blinding strike on enemies and 3-5 hobbling stike in combat. I wont use withering strike at any given time (costs too much).

Second case scenarion (suggested iteration):

I have 12pt power pool.

I will use 1-2 withering strike, 2-3 blinding strike and the rest hobbling strike.

 

Basically I will always want to be more optimal. If I have less I will find the optimal choice of abilites and disregard the rest. If I have more resource I will use more expensive abilities because it will be more optimal. I wont spam hobbling strike if I have the pool to use a better ability. Especially if you can use empower on that said ability.

 

 

Ship management and ship combat:

 

I like it. I have two issues with this:

One is that when the crew gains xp I cannot spend it how I choose. It seems very random how the crew levels up, and I have no control over it.

 

Second is that sometimes when the one turn ends and a new turn starts sometimes the enemy ship gets two action in a row. Meaning one turn ends with his action and the next starts with his action. This is a ui problem and makes unavoidable damage sometimes.

Example: he ends the turn with a full stop, and theoretically at the start of the next turn I could make an action but no, he starts the turn he does a full broadside attack and I cannot do nothing to mitigate. -> double action. 

 

 

Passives:

 

It would be nice if casters could have passives which increases the number of cast they make, they would be less dependant on scrolls and weapons.

Not for high level spells, but for low level.

Also I would give the +2 quick item slot passive to all classes. 

 

The ugly:

 

Remove the moles(white dots) from pale elf face please!!!!!!

Everyone getting weapon styles cheapens Fighters and force specialization on everyone.

 

If you use weapons you will pick one of the styles, absolutely no reason not to. Now you'll effectively be shoehorned into a single fighting style. Before you could dual wield for greater dps and then grab a shield when you want more deflection or single wield when you want accuracy. Pure flexibility and freedom. No one was complaining that their Berserker/BleakWalker was doing bad damage dual wielding sabres. Now you will spend the point on a fighting style and stick with that to the exclusion of others because you spent a point on getting it.

 

Now your dual wielding will be 20% faster than before which was not needed. Adding a Fighter only gets you a stance, disciplined strikes and regen. All are good things but anyone can get the fighting styles now which cheapens the fighter.

 

They do need to give everyone Gunner and Marksmen so that Rangers aren't exclusive to them

 

I am pleased that they finally fixed the Monk unarmed damage bug where a save/load wiped it out.

Agreed!

 

As far as I understand it, Pale Elves are elves who have lived in very cold environments for long enough to adapt to them. Their current model makes them look almost like Frost Godlike's, with little bits of frost twinkling in their flesh.

All yes. Yet this argumentation found deaf ears, when people complained that they cant pick dual wielding perk for their characters who weren’t fighters. The fact that such perk wasn’t needed to be effective didn’t have much impact.

Of course, all unique passives for each class would be preferable, but let’s be realistic here - it was never gonna happen.

I don't agree that it cheapens fighter.

I think these changes instead outlines its lack of usefull capabilites the class had in the first place.

 

Fighter is the only melee class which doesn't have a single full attack abilitiy.

Fighter is the only melee class which only have buffs and no real variation of offensive abilites. 

Knockdown, a more expensive knockdown (useless), and into the fray (useless).

Aoe capability? none. Only clear out but that is a mid-end game ability.

Probably  with a short range 120° arc and low damage and 3-4 resource cost. Which I will not use.

The self buffs are eating up the resource pool, because those are 15 sec duration.

I will not go for intellect because the class has no aoe capability. 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong here but if you take away it's passives - which happened in this patch - and you get a half class at best.

Nobody else in here with camera issues?

Even when i disable smart camera scrolling on the edges doesn't work like before.

I never use edge scrolling (WASD all the way) so haven't noticed anything.

 

Is this map exploration mode or in the party level mode by the way? I noticed that the exploration mode has follow toggle which, if you don't unselect it, will make it so that every time you issue a command the camera will zoom to your location and follow you again.

Has edge scrolling speed in the options menu changed? I don't use smart camera mostly, and I don't have issues with the scrolling.
