    Since posters in another thread miss my trolling in this one, I'll keep going.

    First, Vincke backpedals hard:
    https://twitter.com/LarAtLarian/status/484709298975813632
    Today
    Hey Vincke maybe you should take some advice from Def Leppard. There's a world of difference between "Everyone should get them this week" and "We'll be shipping them all this week." Tomorrow's a holiday for me so this week isn't happening.

    And to think people said I lived in Antarctica when I told them how long it would take to ship. :roll:

    And now for a blast from the past http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/inde...g-codex-to-larian-studios.82421/#post-2616914
    Prediction: True. Speed is the best stat for all characters, strength, dexterity, and intelligence are necessary for melee, rogue/ranged, and mages respectively and perception is also a thing from which rogue/ranged benefits much. Con? Meh.

    Also many stats can/should be dumped depending on the character you're making. :P

    Haha remember when mana was a thing? Prediction here: Not quite accurate, but only because I couldn't predict that they'd scrap mana altogether and give you unlimited cost-free healing through a spell you can use between battles.

    Since I haven't seen anyone mention anything about shattering, I'm glad they came to their senses regarding this issue. Prediction: Thankfully wrong.

    Of course I have seen someone bypass HP mechanics by stacking a bunch of exploding barrels, stealthily moving them to a boss, and then blowing them all up but I don't really care if people want to indulge in that kind of pseudo-sim tomfoolery. I doubt there's enough barrels to do that to all the bosses.

    That's just like the thing i was talking about. Funny how i gave up on this idea when they actually bothered to implement it. Looks like tey did a really good job taking notes from the Codex :salute:

    Taking time to fix Global chat and add moderation seems like a waste. What value is there in global chat?

    Exactly what I was saying, even with a relatively weak character in the slot 4 > 3 .
    Although he wasn't complete dead weight, lucky charm/sneak/pickpocket meant everyone was pretty decked out.

    Not all items can be boosted though. I think there's a cap or maybe same resistances don't stack.

    Resistances are applied by Essenses (shiny orbs). Like Fire Essense > Belt = belt with fire resistance.

    Guy I don't think so. You should have found him while still having the stone?
    Gal... not sure. But probably not, since she says she doesn't want to.

    I used it on animal from Morrowind.

    Whole game is zoned by character level. That's how you go through it I think.

    When we get an influx of reviews the game should get a good boost in sales.

    Larian isn't like the AAA Publishers, so they aren't sending out checks, Doritos and Mountain Dew to Professional Gaming Journalists™ to get 11 out of 10!!!!11111!!! Reviews.

    So it will be a while...

    Even though this game is objectively a 9.5/10, I expect 80% on gamerankings.com / metacritic because game reviewers are so God damn retarded.

    It's not 9.5. There's not enough epic narrative to please the crowd.
    It's not mainstream enough to be considered a safe 9.0 verdict either.
    I'd say getting 8-8.5 is pretty much the best hope.

    User's scores are above 9 in most sites, by the way. Metacritic, IGN, Gamespot, whatever.

    Honestly, I'd personally go with hybrids as you'll easily be able to obtain a strong fighter and mage (with aerotheurge) early on (and teleport is the bees knees).

    I just ended a pretty tough quest battle with most of my characters at only level 3. At the very last minute one of my main characters died. I luckily had a handful of resurrect scrolls so I cast one immediately after the battle. What I didn't realize is that like teleport, you can choose where your resurrected character is going to land. Since I didn't realize this at first I resurrected my character right into the pile of poison goo she died in.

    :x

    If I had patience to restart I'd make at least one character use bows, there's a lot of magical arrows and they have a variety of status effects
