    After solasta left me itchy for good tactical rpg, i made the mistake of going back to pathfinder kingmaker. The combat design is so atrocious, it's basically diablo with 6 characters. 90% of fights (maybe more) are just bags of meats going for you, the most lazy design in combat possible.

    I kinda regret not backing KOTC2, i want to play it.

    - Arcane Weapon Enhancement buff for Magus now shows on portrait. At last!

    - Some previously blocked routes have now been unblocked. For example, there was such a blocked route south of the wolves at Stag Lord's Fort, and another one to the southwest of the Ruined Watchtower location (among the trees).

    The unblocking of the latter route is an issue, afaic, and it should have remained blocked. One possible tactic against the worgs and wolves in the south used to be to stand on the higher ground and rain arrows on them. The worgs/wolves would come after you, but they had to go around the trees, so they would never reach you, and you could go on with your archery practice. Now that the tree route has been unblocked, they reach you all right, so said tactic is no longer possible.

    Imo, this is bad for the following reasons:
    This was one of the very few cases in the game where this tactic was possible. Why make it completely disappear?
    You just got Ekun, so that tactic was about him to shine early. Now that's gone.
    It is not like you were going to miss fighting worgs and wolves elsewhere.

    You probably can write Pierre at enquiries@heroicfantasygames.com to ask him to buy the game now before it releases publicly.

    Do you have the option "class specific clothes" or something like that turned on?

    Nope. This is a real bummer tbh, wanted to play kingmaker a bit before moving on. Maybe I should just revert to pre TB patch.

    Should this ever happen to anyone else, the bug is super random and hard to reproduce. Just keep reloading until it disappears.

    TB is a very fun way to add more gravitas to important fights.

    Short question about mechanics. Do (aasimar) wings work when shape shifted? Logically no but Kingmaker being what it is, i'm not sure.

    I know that when you choose angelic aspect and then poli into dragon, you end up a dragon with angel wings, which might as well be the coolest thing I have ever seen in a videogame ever, but I have never tried druid shapeshift from an Asimar.

    Someone in the chat asked her why there's no "dismiss spell" in the game, and her answer was "oh, yeah, that would be helpful... let me write it down. I don't know why we haven't that in the game yet, maybe it's too hard to implement".

    I've been saying exactly that for a while. Hopefully this'll motivate them to ask to copy the modder's homework.

    Imagine if "Call of the Wild" becomes inherent part of the game, and you can neither remove it nor tweak.

    That "someone" was me. I watch their live streams a lot. I usually distill your (the participants of this thread) autism into 1 or 2 ideas, and try to subtly pass them on. They, generally, pick up on stuff. Like this one.

    Plus... their streams can be a lot of fun. Especially when this item dev hosts them. She can be really charismatic.

    oh yeah just fixing continious spells with a dismiss spell which only works out of combat like 99dc dispell.
    I remember I wrote them that into message system too in a year a
    when did game come out?
    yeah same year when monk abilities were still bugged
    unless they still are and it's this year...

    Considering that there's an ENDLESS dungeon, I'd say no.

    Turn-based is much more fun in this game. Too many trash mobs for that mode tho
