I always wanted to play a game like this, so I bought it on my Xbox One X while it was on sale.
I've had it on PC before, but I was SO bad, I do not really think I'm good at it.
Any suggestions for a rookie player? I plan to play my first run on the easiest difficultly.
I would LOVE to make either a Cipher or a Hunter (Lion pet sounds fun) Cipher seems cool and I thought I read you can give them a pistol, which is kinda neat.
Any tips to get me started? Anything to help push me a bit. The farthest I ever got was a bear cave.
You should go to the bear cave once you have a companion or two, and gain a level.
Also, you won't die much (or at all) if you follow the paths step by step. I recommend this;
First go to Gilded Vail (rest in an inn, do some quests that are inside the village), then go to the sea sight (Anslog Compass) after you've taken the quest from one of the pregnant ladies (no spoiler ) , then go to Margren's Fork, recruit Durance and party, in Black Medow, kill bandits and take supplies back to the blacksmith in Gilded Vail. on to Cad Nua. Here you'll find Kana. Recruit him, then go inside the keep, then stairs down and find Merawold then go back to talk with the statue (steward), THEN you can go further down again, but just enough so you find Kana's tablet, finishing his quest. I recommend you return to Cad Nua and solve Master Below at a much higher level.
Just make sure you explore pretty much everything in the area, so you get XPs and stuff...BUT! Avoid the following at a low level or when you don't have many companions;
*Cad Nua bellow
*White March until you're at a decent level (If you think you're bad at the game, I'd wait till level....12. I think.)
*Don't do the dwarf's companion's (Sagani's) quest until you're at chapter 3 (after Defence Bay.)
*I guess you should avoid the Ethos temple in Gilded Vail until you have Edar too.
Spend a lot of time doing quests in Defence Bay, since they're easy, inside the city walls.
1. You can hire adventuresses to join your party at any innby talking to the barkeeper. (I personally don't do that but, you might want to do this early on in Guided Vail since you only get 2 companions there.
2. In guided Vail, you won't get the second companion until you've taken a rest. Anywhere, either in inn or or outside with camping supplies.
3. Before making your character, you can google which build is best for the class (best stats i mean).
4. If you play on story mod, you have unlimited camping supplies which is a big plus. Camping Supplies restore both health and lost endurance. And endurance is important because once it hits 0, your companion (or you) dies.
5. You should tinker around in option menu, giving yourself some advantages such as 'no knock down injuries'.
6. Click on your and your companions portraits then click on the button on them. Make sure Edar has 'Hold ground', Durance has 'Healing' etc etc.....and make sure they're all aggressive, meaning they'll attack right away (IF you have IE turned on - or what cha call it??)
7. With EI or IE or whatever it is, it's the blue head button besides your party portraits. Just click on it, and leave it green.
8. You can control when the game will auto-pause in the options menu. You can also control combat speed there, that should helps lot!
But really, if you're deciding to play on story mod and have companions have a mind on their own (even if they are a bit dum dum dum), half my advice will go waisted and you will probably end up playing in pretty much real time if you follow the road because well...easy peasy lol.
