    Thank you, Desiderius.
    Hmm Aspect of the Wolf aura... interesting. Although at 14 it comes rather late. Still, very cool.

    14 isn’t nearly as late in Wrath. You’ll hit it in ch3. The other auras (+30 speed) are good too. If you let Lann be your Drovier though you’re looking at lvl 17. We hit 18 in ch 4 in Beta.

    TB or RTWP? I NEED THE BEST CHOICE.

    What are u guys going with? Im tempted to run full TB first run, since i did RTWP in kingmaker 1 since it wasnt avaliable at launch.

    But the trash fights... god the trash fights.

    I fear them in my dreams.

    RTwP, solely because I'm assuming that the game was designed with that in mind and that the TB mode was introduced subsequently by altering the original encounter design and what not. I doubt that it'll be just an afterthought as was the case with PoE2's TB mode, but it's still not the (primary) way in which the game is intended to be played.

    Disagree. Multiclassing/Prestige classes are great. Mainly when there is lore reasons for it.

    For eg, if I'm a DM and one of my players wanna to get a level in red wizard of thay, I would require then to travel the Thay, attend the red wizards academy and be accepted as a apprentice. Not something which a caster who spend his entire life in Waterdeep and never has been in Thay could do cuz "circle magic, cool magical tattoo and DC increase".

    Sadly most uses of multiclass is about creating pun pun builds, not about creating interesting characters.

    BTW, in 2E, red wizard would be a "kit" instead of a prestige class which is a better rule imo.

    I hope that there'll be some dialogue reactivity for the Hellknight (/Hellknight Signifier) prestige class, particularly with Regill.

    Stalker.

    A lot of games which were made by programmers who didn't get theirs education by self-education and relied on university education were quite bad. Games and normal software have bit different development methodologies, and standard software development is either 3x slower, or doesn't work well. I remember era from 2 decades ago, when programmers spend significant time on theirs own projects during weekends and theirs spare time, current programmers tends to be people who are going to work at hour n. Spends time by doing standard stuff. And leave office at time n2.

    Decades ago they made theirs own "engine", nowadays they fight with pre-fabricated stuff.

    Vampire Bloodlines 2 was so bad they kicked out team and hired new one. That's how bad are some modern developers.

    Turn-based for more challenging and intensive encounters, RTwP for trash encounters. Works beautifully.

    Need to actually decide what to play.

    Thinking Arcane Primalist Bloodrager, but then I need to pick a mythic path.

    Maybe legend with rogue levels for sneak dice.

    I'll roll simplest melee character. So many fabulously optimistic people in this thread thinking they can make something good from first edgy multiclass retard they create.

    I played the 1st chapter on Hard in the alpha, was thinking about playing on hard again, then I remembered the companions are weird as fuck and I have no idea how their classes work or how to build them so maybe not..

    Very difficult choice for first character, to be sure. Arcane Trickster will likely be my first, but the mythic path will be a close call between Trickster or Azata. Due to mythic stuff, I might actually go sorcerer, which is rare. This game is going to halt my backlog progression. There are so many builds I want to try.
