    Can the TB mod be included into running saves? Can you un-install it again if you don't like the overall experience?

    I was in parts put off how busy the Combat on this could be. Too much resolved at once, in particular on the higher levels (true to the source rules, mind). There's multiple attack rolls, saving throws, checks on concealment (only to be followed on the Combat log), concentration checks, and so much more. Forget about the feedback clutter. This is game-inherent. However, I'm cautious as to the combat encounters. Any real-time /with pause game tries to stretch the playtime with added trash mobs, and this is no different.

    You can install it mid game. You won't have any real reason to uninstall it though, because you can toggle RTwP and Turn-based modes in game with the command alt+T.

    As people including myself have said, we will often times toggle off turn-based mode if we're coming up against a lot of trash mobs, then turn it on again during more interesting encounters.

    The Royal Ascension DLC is just a bonus DLC available to those who purchase the Imperial Edition bundle. It just contains some special stuff:

    Yeah, I know. And it's not new. I bought it last sale to give poor russians more potato to spawn more kingmakers.

    My 2nd playthrough is as a disabler Wizard. I started as a Universalist, but Universalist sucks and I restarted as an Enchanter. Opposition schools are Divination (LOL) and Abjuration. Abjuration duties are going to be covered by Harrim and Jubilost.

    So, I will be focusing on Enchantment for targeting Will, and Necromancy for targeting Fortitude. The Illusion school is probably going to be helpful against late game enemies (Phantasmal Killer/Weird targeting both Will & Fortitude), but we will see if I can spare the feats to specialize in it.

    I am not sure what to specialize in for targeting Reflexes. Conjuration may be good for the awesome Chains of Light, but it is only one spell. Transmutation has Web & Obsidian Flow, but such spells are irritating, as they affect my party too. Evocation generally targets Reflexes, but it is mostly for nuking, not disabling. Icy Prison is a disabling spell though.

    I may go Evocation for Reflexes or I will live it completely to Jubilost to deal with Reflex-challenged enemies. Let me know if I am missing some good Reflex-targeting spell.

    Grease works like Web, right? Meaning that the ground is going to be unavailable for my party too. I do not like these spells, they are annoying.

    Stinking Cloud looks like cheese due to the way Delay Poison works, so I will probably be staying away from it. Still, that is legit good info, I am not complaining.

    Glitterdust is good and I am using it, but it targets Will and I am overloaded with spells that target Will. I need to figure out how to target Reflexes properly. That said, between Glitterdust and Chains of Light Conjuration may indeed be a decent 3rd school for my needs.

    Not like Web. The aoe is much smaller and the duration is 10x shorter. Much less annoying.
    Plus if you aim it well and park your melees just outside the radius, they will get Attacks of Opportunity on enemies that try to get back up.

    I think to come to this conclusion one must have his own interpretaion of the words "veteran", "crpg", and "player".

    One of my favorite combos was having an abberant bloodrager (who is immune to nauseated) in a stinking cloud smashing the enemies who were getting intimidated and taking penalties to their follow up saves in return. Even if the AI was smart enough to leave the cloud (it is not), they'd eat AoOs for doing so.

    Also, I wonder if the people who use Steam statistics as the foundation of their bragging rights know about GOG users with the Galaxy client, GOG users without the client, and torrent "buyers"? How well does Steam statistics work for them?

    I don't remember, was it the EE version or one of the patches that brought that feature?

    It must have been right before the EE or so.
    At any rate, my point was that you should be able to talk to the Wild Hunt, at least on a few occasions, because they aren't Int 3 critters. The game did a good job of allowing for skill tests in the chapter RIGHT before it after all.
