    PoE 2 did it because spells was EXTREMELY weak on PoE 1... I mean, having 2 casts per rest when your wail of the banshee can kill a army of high level creature is one thing. Having 2 casts per rest when no spell can take 1/4 of enemy hp, is a no no....

    If they announce cooldowns in ANYTHING, i will insta remove from my wishlist. Despite all problems, i still believe that BG3 worth be played(but will not be good aas PF wotr or PF:KM or IE games)

    We don't need another game with boring cooldowns. This mechanic makes no sense.

    short rest in 5e tabletop is just "we sit for one hour and heal our wounds"
    ability that recharge on short rest are supposed to be "spammable" each fight.

    a warlock have 2-4 spell slots in total but the spells rechage on a short rest.
    Full caster have x5-6 the number of spell slots but rechage on long rest.

    Infinitron, if you're going to move discussions to GD, that's one thing, but retardoing the fact that one of the lead devs is an Islam-loving libshit is killing a legitimate discussion outright.

    Resting for a day after every few fights in a dungeon was always retarded. I like the idea of more stopping to rest for a short while, healing wounds with magic, then moving on. You can assume longer overnight rests on the world map.

    The game seems like DOS2: Baldur's Gate flavor, which isn't a bad thing entirely, provided the story is less retarded, but there are some popamole implications. Maybe that's why I can't help but suspect cooldown timers.

    I guess we'll find out in early access.

    I take it you're not familiar with how the Codex was back in the ~2005 era.

    The Codex used to hate BG with a passion. Fallout and Arcanum were the ones universally revered. PST was also appreciated for its writing.

    100 years after BG2, the only companions alive are going to be elves and dwarves. At least they say they will appear in the game. Now we have a connection with the old games. BUt that 100 years difference it's not a coincidence, they'll make the old characters a bunch of goods for nothing. BG3 with new bad characters. XD

    5e magic system is kinda popamolified as you waste slots while doing magic and most spells, specially the powerful ones require long rests. Some spells, specially class spells, they only require short rests. It is kinda popamolified in comparison to 3.5e because it allows more spamming but nowhere close to the cooldown retarded system. It is possible to balance things so fireball or chain lighting require long rests while you dont need 8hs of rest to cast minor cure wounds. However, there is nothing stopping Larian to just allowing rest everywhere as Bioware did.

    Newfags have no idea how the codex was on 2005. It was far more elitist, even the raving lunatics of that time were more inclined than of today. It is pure decline.

    pretty sure we covered earlier that some of the old companions are still alive through various asinine coincidences like being turned to stone.

    It seems the only thing this game has in common with Baldur's Gate is the slogan they keep forcing into every single trailer, web page, and anything else that has anything to do with the game.
    Gather your party. Gather your party. Gather your party.
    Doesn't it just tickle your nostalgia when we use this one line as our catch phrase while simultaneously ignoring everything else about the originals?

    As the poster said, elves and such are likely still alive.

    I haven't kept up with 5th edition, but someone else itt had a list of the living iirc.

    Plus, Minsc and Boo are two characters, not one. :M

    I have to admit though, I wouldn't mind Edwin returning as a lich. Thavians are known for such things, after all...

    (As if these simians would even bother to learn such a thing. Bah.)
