    Is this game a more finished product than the first one? Also have they removed the city building stuff?

    Tbf having a deathtouched pet is kind of a corner case (sane would apply to Dhamphir tho) and there aren’t many foes after the beginning with Neg energy attacks and that is kind of the distinguishing feature of those guys.

    It can be an annoying threat to rest of party.

    Its more widespread than initially appears. Many of the mythic paths give an immunity and if an enemy happens to use that particular damage type, they won't change their tactics to accommodate it. There are also items that give immunities (1 cloak for acid resistance, 1 cloak for fire resistance and probably other items I am unaware of) and there are spells (fiery body, icy body). I would guess Lich is probably the point where its the most noticeable since they have spells to give such immunities to the entire party, but as I have not played lich and only looked at its spells (it has 1 spell which confers undead immunities to anyone it is cast on) I cannot comment further than that. All I would really like is in the situation when an enemy is hard countered in such a way, either it actively seeks another person to attack, or if it does have other options available to it, it uses those. Having a cleric continuously use harm on someone who is healed by it whilst looking amusing, isn't exactly what I want the AI to be doing. It is as I said though, a minor issue and something I can overlook.

    I started a new game with a Kitsune Vivisectionist/Barb and so far its been easy.

    I have no real way of seeing if the claw/bite attacks etc stack though.

    All I know is my kitsune is smashing cunts.

    The good thing is, if you dont wanna bite cunts, morph into your human form and be sensible. (i.e against water elemental)

    I still feel a bit gay though.

    I do wish they had one of those things were it showed what each character did

    i.e:

    kills
    damage
    deaths
    cocks cucked
    etc

    A few things which may be spoilers.

    There are some reactivity things which I have found.

    Show Spoiler
    If you go demon path against Hosila, Wendaug will turn against her. This makes the fight much easier.
    If you do this, you have to figh a vision t at Tower of Estrod. (very easy)
    If you do not go to the library before the Defenders Heart attack, you lose allies and the ability to be a trickster.
    You are not punished for going to Daearans house in time.
    I have not ever left Horgus place for after attack.
    If you leave the Square for after attack, you can not save Ramien.
    if you do not use light of heaven when talking to Hurun, you may have to kill him.
    You must recruit Woljif for Finnean (please correct me?)
    If you dont rescure the thiefling before attack you lose them for the Grey Garrison assault.
    If you are a rogue, tranny sue (thanks desidurus) will give you some shit
    If you beat up Staunton as a demon by failing will check he gives you a +3 will cloak (not bad)
    If you visit Library after attack, you just find story teller - which is bad if you wanna be a trickster
    If you only open bridge at Town Center and dont talk to Hulrun before Defender Heart attack, Hulrin kills the faggy aasimar

    You do. It’s right there in the Combat Log. Mouse over the attack and it will show the number.

    Bites stack, claws don’t.

    I want hit chance visible on hover, its a shame they are incompetent to introduce this or just doesn't care.

    Desiderius Im not a fucking autist who will right click info every enemy char on screen, look at their defences, open my char, compare it, calculate the hit chance and memorize it. You have to be nuts to do this everytime.

    Dumbfuck Shitpost take.

    It's fine so far. As with KM people are going to negative theorycraft themselves out of even trying it and miss a good chunk of the game. The Illusionist really needs Magician's Ring for instance.

    You only need to look at the ones that you're missing and figure out a better strategy.

    That's the fun part.

    Every modern tactical game which have dice rolls have also hit chance on hover. XCOM, Underrail. Apparently serbians are more competent than russians.

    No, just their players.

    They put it on locks now so they'll probably do it on attax too soon if you keep whining enough.

    Kingdom Management was so boring and lacked so much interesting potential. I had hoped the crusade system would be better because of battles but from what I’m reading it’s poor and tedious like KM.

    I love HoMM, so if it’s a lighter version that’ll be much better than kingdom management, guess I’ll have to see next month.

    Love how they tinkered with the crusade system this time 'round

    Queen Can't-do-shit Galfrey: "We're marching straight to Drezen!"
    Me: "Isn't Drezen like a massive, heavily defended fortress? And the only path to it blocked by demonic hordes?"
    Queen Can't-do-shit Galfrey: "Yes. So?"
    Me: "And you guys managed in 70 years to gain less ground than the Germans did at Verdun?"
    Queen Can't-do-shit Galfrey: "Verdun? Germ...Commander, are you drunk?"
    Me: "Listen, what I'm trying to say is that you literally declared a crusade 5 minutes ago and we have a 100 guys. Wouldn't it be prudent to, you know, wait a bit? At least until we get something more than half a fucking battalion?"
    Crusade: "Commander is a big meanie!" *-4 billion morale*

    Good to know that wanting a QoL change that decreases much of tedium, which is included in most of modern tactical games is considered idiocy. Keep at it, and you will soon hit the levels of pompousness and ridiculousness of Pope Amole aka nerd commando. He is at least smarter than you.

    Seriously Stavrophore you fight stuff then if you’re missing you figure out what’s going on and miss less. Then repeat a few times and before you know it you’re not missing much at all and no longer need to check.

    This is a fun experience.

    If you’ve got that floating number people are like WTF 10% nerf! We’re never getting decent games if people blame the game before they even know what’s happening.

    Trial and Error. It’s a good default that way to many people never learned in the first place.

    Of course I’m ridiculous - that’s the point. Someone with your intelligence acting like a retard is already ridiculous.

    And if you think I’m pompous we’ve found the autist here and is isn’t me.
