Wonder if these will influence achievements, i.e. can we use them and still get Triple Crown when it gets added?

The +2 to skills is not just to make the game easier, it's so you can open more interactions on your second play through. They should probably Implement a second version of this that doesn't affect gameplay. I.e will +2 alchemy will affect dialogue but not potion effects.

Where are the options that would make the next game....somehow different? This....is a weak implementation. Even if it was a dlc of....goofy stuff, give us something to spice it up. Your team is capable of more than what you provided.

I don't see why not?  They don't affect any of the current achievements.

I wouldn't be surprised if those achievements specify not using (positive) Berath's Blessings.

Thanks for putting this together, Karkarov. Looks like a massive amount of cheese, so don't want to use them, but nice to have the overview nonetheless.

I would be surprised.  I have never seen a game developer spend time to build a gameplay element, and then penalize the player for using said element.  That is the definition of bad design.

Also just to be honest, other than the skill bonus, and stat bonus perks, there is nothing these perks do or give you can't already get in game anyway.

The console disables achievements entirely. Just saying.

There is a difference between a gameplay element that gives you +2 all stats cause you earned a bunch of achievements, and a console command cheat that makes you unable to die, can max all your stats, give you infinite money, etc etc, and requires being enabled through text file editing.

Ah. I reread your post and I see. Since BoB is a reward, it counts as a gameplay element where as the console is merely a part of the game. Yes.

 

The console, by the way, doesn't need to be enabled. Its available by default.

I was thinking Eternity 1 for some reason, but yeah you are right, no need to use a text edit this time.

In PoE the console is enabled by default as well. You can use commands like hiding helmets without disabling achievements, only ones the need iroll20s first disable achievements.

Can crewmembers reach legendary? I don't think so... It appears that master is the highest for them, and even then only crew who don't have any ranks in any other skill seem able to reach master. For example, every crew that had novice in one skill (i.e. deckhand) could not get past expert in another skill

Yeah this is true, looks like master is the top rank for regular crew, and they can only have one set skill or they wont even get that. I desperately need a new gunner, cause of their mishmash they are stuck at seasoned.
Tutorial states that crew max out at 4 (Master).

True but you can also hide helmets in the ui itself now.

Hm for some reason two achievements are not unlocking for me tonight. Recruit all the companions and put a crew member in all ship slots. Do I need to do something special, or is it being weird for some reason?

Could you post screen shots of both your companion roster and ship?

Does anyone know where I can check what my captain rank is?

It is on the ship menu, the weird icon under your portrait. 

No stars is unskilled, one star is novice, two stars is journeyman, three stars is expert, four stars is master, four stars with a large center star is legendary, and at least for captains there is a sixth rank that is a large blue star with five small green stars.  Let's call it Legendary Master Captain for now :p.

 

to my best recollection, my character has a green star surrounded by silver ones as her captain's rank... or am i just remembering it wrong? though i'm pretty sure i'm not.
