Story Mode too difficult?

Question

It will no doubt amuse and bewilder some to find that my wife and I have been playing on Story Mode (with scaling turned on), and have found it much too difficult--having been surprised with how often we seem to be dying. It wasn't a problem in the first Pillars, where we didn't ever have to think much about combat.

 

In some battles in POE2, when our ships are boarded, our characters die almost instantly, and I had another encounter today on an unnamed island that seemed unwinnable after multiple attempts. I was led to believe that I could auto-attack my way to victory after my experience in Pillars 1!

I've double-checked, and scaling is definitley set to "All", but island encounters and ship encounters are almost always guaranteed death for me.

That does sound very odd. Boarding ships tend to always be much much harder from my experience and it seems like they balanced it more around sinking the ship. In any case have you considered using console commands to  make things easier? You press the "~" key, type in "iroll20s", and then "god". This will disable achievements but will make your characters invulnerable so you can enjoy the story.

Hello ganbarigarry,

 

Thanks for the post! Ill get it in as an issue for ship combat as this does not sound like what is to be expected, so no worries!

 

Best,
