    Cleric of Asmodeus, do you still have your savegame testing setup? It would be interesting to know if loot sold to Enneo (the traveling merchant who is involved in Jaethal's quest) burdens the savegames AFTER he leaves the capital.

    If his inventory is deleted when he leaves, then selling loot to Enneo might be a thing: player gets the money from the loot, and still that loot won't burden the savegames later.

    Not sure I have a save game close to that; mine are generally around stuff like stag lord fort, trobolds, vtomb, etc. Interesting theory, though.

    I speculate that items on vendors don’t take as much space as those on bodies. I would have to do some reverse engineering but I would guess that the data storing an item on a vendor just increments a count=x field each time you sell them another masterwork item. Otherwise things like diamond dust and camping supplies would generate a crapload of data.

    For corpses, however, people have suggested there is an independent Json element for each and each unique item. I haven’t confirmed this myself but the cleaner mod’s implementation suggests this is how it works, too.

    No, it should not. It is one of the save game optimizations that I have read somewhere. However, I have not tested it by parsing the saves.

    Also, I know that using Bartholomew in the throne room to sell junk is absolute no-no.

    It looks like it for some items (dust, scrolls etc), but I am not sure whether weapons stack like that. Eg, selling 2 daggers to a merchant leads to the daggers appearing one under the other in his in-game inventory IIRC. I will have to recheck.

    Right, I sell my loot in the tavern. But I am going to try selling to Enneo from now on, for the limited time that he is available of course.

    Not sure what to play for my next playthrough [​IMG]
    • Righteous paladin with zero tolerance for lawlessness and evil (and women :cool:).
    • Nature loving druid with perfect Sawyerism for balance, and yeah, his friendly pet cat Frank.
    • Fun-loving charismatic rogue but with a bit of a greedy touch, as in: show me the [​IMG] ! (and power).
    • Chaotic evil sorcerer with no friends, or purpose beyond being an asshole to everyone and everything. Might die in chapter 1.

    Let's decide:
     
    Choosing from a list

    From the options:

    • paladin
    • druid
    • rogue
    • sorcerer

    Random selection is: druid

    I'm playing that Speaker Shaman too. I took Life Mystery for the Channeling. If you take Channel Smite then there's a Feat that lets you take WIS to AB. Maybe not worth it but fun. If you enjoy the Hex action economy you can take Chant (Move action that extends all current hexes one round) but Witch is probably better for that since you get access to Major and Grand Hexes. Shaman has a lot more utility Hexes so you can use your action economy attacking most of the time.

    You'll see that dichotomy more clearly in Wrath where the Shaman gets Sword Saint style weapon enchants while the Witch has a curse that makes her bad at attacking.

    I went with Lore spirit, so I ended up with the feature that gives me some wizard spells, too. So with that, the cleric spells as a favored class bonus, the shaman list, and the hexes, I have a spells falling out of my ass! Not sure how effective it is, but kind of interesting to have one condensed character that can do all of the shield of faith, barkskin, hasting etc.

    I like Mental Acuity (the Revelation that gives free INT), but yeah this time that felt like too many directions. You get Medium Armor + 3/4 BAB so felt like mise we’ll go Shelyn and Glaive it up. Guess you could just cast all the buffs (although Speaker is the one without the Familiar so doesn’t get Share Spells) then just Hex in combat, but then you’re wasting Divine Power + Luck trait.

    I was doing the mysterious shrine puzzle and I couldn't find it, so I looked it up but I can't pass the perception check to reveal it on the map.

    Am I screwed, is there no way to pass the check once you've failed?

    I forget now, but didn't upping Perception via stat/skill-boosting gear also count for a fresh roll?

    I think that the "Scout XXX region" card in kingdom management reveals the locations you didn't reveal yourself.

    Played a druid in a new Varnhold run, saving the Paladin for the main campaign. Anyway, was a really fun class. Never played a druid before - in any DnD game. Starts rather weak I think, but got really fun a couple of levels in. Versatile class. Just wondering one thing. I maxed out dex on her because of ranged attacks, but I noticed that a lot of the animal transformations gets bonus from strength. And then we have long-bows that gets more damage from str... so is it a better idea to balance those things out, or just go full in either? Str or dex? And if you run a full str druid, I assume you can become a pretty formidable fighter on its own with some cool weapons and armor?

    Been trying to choose a "pet" class for my new playthrough, been jumping between various summoner subclasses(from COTW) sacred huntsman, animal priest and Druid for a while.

    But I think I'll go with undead lord priest(from COTW), I haven't done a priest playthrough yet. Any tips about must-have feats would be welcome. Also been thinking about dipping into Drill sergent fighter that gives teamwork feats to allies, does he also give those feats to summoned undead?

    Anyone played with the AI mod by Holic92 found on nexus? Is it any good?

    Did anyone play with the Craft Magic Items, how does it influence the game in practice? Does it make the game significantly easier or not?

    I didn’t learn how to play Kineticist until 1500 hrs in. They could use more class specific items/feats. There are a couple of both in Wrath.
