    No you won't. I didn't expect anything and it still scarred me.

    I personally really liked Risen 3 although it is pretty easy and the ending feels half-assed, I recommend you give it a shot, it is dirt cheap anyways.

    The moment I heard main characters voice I knew I don't want to play it. :lol: Uninstalled not long after that. At least main dude in R2 was enjoyable. If they kept the same guy for R3 I might've actually played through it.

    Hello there. Do stats in this game work like in Gothic, where you need more and more skill points for one attribute point? I remember that in G2 I stopped putting points in when the cost was too high and drank elixirs to max out stats. I will probably make a melee char if it matters.

    Also, is it wise to join a faction asap for the benefits? I know PB games are brutal at the start so getting an armor and a better weapon make a huge difference but I would not want to miss out on xp and content just for that.

    Thank you.

    stats are used as requirements for weapons, they dont add additional dmg.
    for max xp you should travel to each faction and do their intro quests.

    Disclaimer: I have not read this topic since a few weeks after release of the game.

    Are there any mods out there that change/add gameplay? Not just visual crap like armor and shitty enbs?

    There are mixed signals on this. I recall reading that somebody had tested and found no impact, but somewhere else I read that they do have an impact, but it's so negligible until it accumulates to large amounts that it's not worth building around (IOW by the time they make any noticeable difference the game's nearly finished).

    I can't imagine that they would outright lie on the stat blurbs, so I should think it's probably the latter. But in either case, even if they're not outright lies, the blurbs are horribly misleading.

    There is rebalance mod called "Elex Overhaul", which I'm inclined to try eventually but first wanna do a second vanilla run. Which I started not long ago. Damn I forgot what an absolute pain in the ass the early game in this is. Trying to go with melee combat this time, which I gave up on during first run very fast and went for Clerics and their laser guns. This time gonna be a Berserker.

    Its a shame, but good weapon have stellar stat requirements regardless. And yes, you do need many more stat points to buy attributes at higher attribute levels. This is why stat boosting accessories are so nice - they allow you to meet some equipment requirements without paying insane amounts of stat points for high level attributes (like 10 points for 1 raise).

    Clerics are perfectly fine for melee also. They don't quite have the raw damage of Berserkers BUT are much safer to play in melee range. I'd even say they are better for melee then Berserkers. YMMV.

    Yeah ok, but why would I play the same faction two times in a row? Gonna stick with the hippie idiots. If they let me in, that is, because I already done some things they don't like. Like killing one of them who was perma butthurt about Albs and ended up pissing me off.

    Berserkers are the best faction because their women are barefoot.

    So after all the work I did running errands for Berserkers and even making some decisions I didn't want to make just to stick to their Law I ended up having to bribe Ragnar with 2000 moneyz to be allowed to join. Damn hippie faggots. So I killed one of them who attacked me first and gave few of them diarrhea by giving them moldy bread, big deal. Also I supposedly failed Angrims test by picking up a weapon he told me to pick up. But then I didn't see any other option to progress that quest. I saw that I would be breaking the law by following his orders, but game wouldn't give me any dialogue choice when I returned to him without picking that up. Was there some hidden way to solve that?

    Just join the Clerics, friend. We have laser guns and autism. What more could you possibly want?
