    She's annoying as fuck. Take her out of the party and use Octavia for your thieving needs.

    Linzi is the stereotypical bubbly sidekick. She doesn't have enough personality to be annoying.

    Yea you'r right Normal isn't Pathfinder core rules. Challenging is, except one option.
    [​IMG]

    For some reason "Enemy stat adjustments" isn't on Normal, put it on Normal and you have core rules difficulty...I guess it's a little late for this, isn't it?

    More like "applause please" vs. "you can count on me!" One is narcissistic, the other cares about the team.

    She's got more personality than "Live Laugh Love"-tier Octavia, who is literally just an average lefty Western woman (which makes it particularly egregious that her Int score is higher than 7).

    Question. In the infinity engine games setting the difficulty to normal reduced incoming damage by 25% while setting it to core rules would not, as in no damage reduction bullshit, is it the same here?

    Like if if i selected "challenging" it would be the real normal as in core rules for the infinity engine games.

    Almost, except on "Challenging" the enemies receive a little bit of a stat boost, which is a separate difficulty option that you can knock back down to have unboosted stats.
    Wrath of the Righteous has "Core" like you are saying, but Owlcat seem to have improved the AI quite a bit in that game.

    We’ve all tried to engage him at one point or another. He wanted to tank and spank* a game whose whole point is transcending tank and spank and he’s too arrogant/ignorant to understand why any game would want to.

    Many such cases.

    * - his first big complaints were from the Hargulka fight where tank and spankers first hit a hard wall.

    The fact that this game can inspire such butthurt speaks to its qualities if I'm being frank.

    Linzi:

    (1) primary attribute is CHR
    (2) gets racial bonus to Perception
    (3) Bardic Knowledge makes her better at Knowledge/Lore than any other companion

    That’s seven skills she’s better suited for than Trickery. Stealth even beats it since she can splash Thug and start every fight with an irresistible Mass Fear with Stealth + Dazzling Display.

    Best Trickery specialists are:

    (1) MC
    (2) Octavia (she starts with Skill Focus and ends up with infinite skill puts)
    (3) Jub (same w/o Focus)

    Linzi sounds like ¡Jeb! because he’s a teenage girl.

    The best Trickery specialist is an Arcane Trickster, because his or her Ranged Legerdemain allows infinite tries without save / load. -5 to DC is a minor penalty comparing to infinity.

    My MC always has trickery. I don't like not being able to pick locks during the solo segments.

    Not the way it’s implemented unfortunately. In any case by midgame you should be at the point where you never set off traps even if you don’t auto-disarm yet.

    Most of the hardcore butthurt is PnP fans so I do hope they put a good PnP emulator in WotR so they’ll talk it up instead of trying to undermine it. No reason not to really.

    Pathfinder Kingmaker is no longer a CRPG confirmed.
    You'll never capture the console market next to D:OS, fuck you doin' Owlcat?

    I never thought I'd see a proper D&D RPG get its console port... Oh well, at least they're implementing turn-based mode. That's enough for me to swallow my dislike of the game's mediocre characters and give it another go.

    Don't you consider Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment proper D&D RPGs?

    I never knew they made console versions of them. How do you even manage RTwP on a console?
