    I had shared XP and shared skill XP on, and all my companions except Linzi and Jaethal survived, so I don't know what to tell you I guess.

    Oh god. I did the one Ekundayo quest where you go to the hunting grounds. The game returns you to the capital, but not really as it turns out. I wondered why I couldn't skip time in Kingdom View anymore. Turns out you're still technically at the hunting grounds map.

    That's some spaghetti programming right there.

    Found a throwing Javelin. I thought throwing weapons were going out of fashion in games, so was suprised. Also, because there's no ammo in this game, I guess that means they all have the returning attribute.

    she's probably stronger as undead because she can't die, but you can't have both her and Tristian unless she dies and reincarnates.

    it seems there's very narrow window of opportunity (and possibly path related issue) with Arthas - I loaded just after Armag's tomb and coronation, his next quest started after random encounter with cultists somewhere in the dire narlmarches. Probably i moved straight to the tournament in my first playthrough so the event did not have a chance to trigger, or it just bugged out in one of the hotfixes.

    Can't say I blame you. Honestly they should've made him a Sorc or something because his Wis score is definitely not justified. Well, that or give him a better reason than "oops I forgot not to be retarded."

    Finished the game. I have no idea how (if) are they planning an expansion considering the outcome. And if they make an expansion mid-game like tales of the sword coast, they need to change the timers for sure.

    well the enemy ai (actually companions etc all kept getting locked in place) wasnt working for the entirety of last chapter so i just left clicked every 10+ seconds while watching some video.
    i imagine it would be quite hard if they fought back.

    Am I screwed? Think I'm about to start chapter V, kingdom stats are mostly IIIs and IVs except Econ at VII and stability at I. Advisors are pretty rubbish with most of them under 10 skill and only 3 of them above 10. Putting all my spare time now into trying improve the stats. Kingdom just went from stable to worried, I have about 700bps and ~60bp a week income.

    Turning off sharing only matters when you have a smaller party. Every doubling of XP is basically 2 extra levels.

    A solo run will basically be 5 levels above a 6 man. A duo will be +3. A quad will be +1 and therefore does not get much advantage from advancing a long the power curve.

    A duo will probably comfortably finish the game at 20. A solo will hit 20 about 75% through the game or so. A normal party will probably hit about 17 if they fairly thurough.

    Personally I plan running a duo with sharing off and I will just manually save edit the followers I use as kingdom advistors up to the level they would have if they were in a 6 man party (i.e -3 off my duo).

    I can confirm it does work this way although there is one caveat I believe any xp you get in a place where you are run around as your main but the whole set of followers is around (capitoal, trading post etc) that any quests you turn are divided by 6. So a solo will not truly get x6 on all xp, and some of these are a good deal of xp so that is an important caveat.

    As far as I can tell you actually need to have left and picked your party to actually not share at 6 man rate.

    Pretty impressed with how many quest and NPCs' outcomes appear to be tracked for the final battle in Chapter 7. :incline:

    too bad chapter 7 still so incredibly buggy and doesn't actually reflect all your choices :decline:

    Way earlier than that if you re specced in trickery/persuasion. Thing is while you ll roflstomp everything in midgame, in lategame roles might be reversed with enemies getting closer to your level and you having no other means of improving your prowess than your primary gear. Very noticeable with the Pitax sorcerer who is easier to deal with with a lvl 16 full party than lvl 20 solo build unless you posess metagame knowledge and planned ahead for this.

    I just finished the game. I got to chap 6 as level 15, finished chap 7 as level 16 - had to put difficulty down because it wasn't fun.

    Show Spoiler
    I hated the level design in the last two chapters - wild hunt spam, seriously? Tedious and no fun, especially at level 16.


    All of my companions survived, no idea wtf happened to Amiri - even the ending states we don't know what happened to her.

    Ending was worth it though. I only wish I had at least one level higher, that would have made last two chapters more bearable (maybe fun even).

    When you hire a custom-built merc, are they level 1, or assigned the same level as you?

    They match your level, although the prices rises to match as well. No idea what a lvl 20 merc would cost.

    Holy shit boys. Solo up to level 20, then buy 5 mercenaries. Boom, level 20 party.

    According to the wiki, one level 20 merc costs 200,000gp. So that's one million gp to get all 5. Yikes.

    I suppose you could role-play selling your empire to the highest bidder and just console the cash in...

    They will come in at the minimum xp of your current level, they also cost more as you get higher.

    Not that much, actually, if you don't mass buy bp (I spent probably upwards of 400k+ on it) and sell all expensive unique gear that you don't really need (at the beginning of the Ch 6, I had probably 10 or 20 items that were worth 30k each, and I sold many of them before that to fund my kingdom-building initiatives)

    Or you wait to see which companions you cannot do without die and you load a save before that, get a merc that is same class and take that one into next chapter instead of that shitty companion :D
