    Here's what the Water Elemental Fight looks like - I thought it was fun:


    There's just too many encounters that waste your time. That is also ignoring how dumb the AI can behave in the mode too. This game was clearly designed for RTwP first and foremost. Otherwise, playing this exclusively for the 100+ hours it might be; in Turn Based, is going to be irritating. I think swapping between the two different modes is what people will do.

    Meh, if you're playing well your fights shouldn't be lasting 20 rounds.

    As I've said before if the fights feel like trash check your play.

    I cut this person's head off. Though. There wasn't any finishing death animation or anything. He just dropped dead then his head rolled off. Would love it if there were finishing animations, like in Age of Decadence.

    There's this ability called Charge. Maybe look into it.

    Well then. That was excruciating. The friendly AI completely compromised my entire right flank during a big battle. I was trying to reinforce the left flank, in hopes that the friendlies will come reinforce me. Instead, they ended up just sitting there ending their turns after the enemies on the left flank died. Then the recruits on my side decided to leave Seelah and Cam by their selves. So they can go on an adventure and rush the stupid back line - which achieved nothing, they ended up dying for that move. Suffice to say, it was excruciating to watch. I spent a better of my turns, repositioning and falling back. What is this AI.

    That’s one of the hardest fights in the game on higher difficulties. Need to find some way to slow down the forces to the SE while Irabeth is dealing with those on her side.

    Main thing is let them come to you and put Entangle or Grease or whatever in the way until Vharne/Irabeth are free.

    So, this "coming 2nd September" is the release date of the full game? Interesting.

    Indeed. People were also complaining about Turn Based combat in Kingmaker. Personally I've never found it annoying/too slow. Granted, there's too much trash, but its hardly much slower then Real-Time (with PAUSE).
    Maybe such people should focus more on the offensive rather then turtling.

    Looks like it. Man, this year is going to be huge for me. My three favorite games are looking pretty good. Ya got a big patch coming in June for Colony Ship. Plus Knights of the Chalice is getting loads of content patches each month. Aw man, what a day to be into RPGs.

    Turn-based in Kingmaker is much better than RTwP, but that's maybe because its RTwP is the worst I've ever experienced. The AI isn't ready for TB too.

    I see that the art of UI design has been irrevertably lost. Same for composing good combat music. Still playing it though...

    Fucking hell they borked Second Spirit and Second Mystery. Again. :argh:
    Also, there does seem to be a patron for Witch to go Winter Witch, it's just that the name is missing. Think I'll do a story mode run see if it actually works.

    Already way more playable, at least for me. I just wish they hadn't announced a date yet, or at least are comfortable pushing it back if need be.

    How is the AI in RTwP? I don't care about TB because that's not what they designed the game around (sadly).

    Quick, suggest me a decent melee class that also doubles down as a competent "face" for the party.

    Paladins are the obvious answer, although the game already provides one.

    *obvious loud cough* Monk can also work, if you choose the background where Persuasion checks can be passed from Wisdom. *obvious bias is obvious*

    Obviously the Bard is always an option, you know...




    This game is pretty great in this dept. Just explore each class, and see. I'm sure that's also part of the fun. :)

    Inquisitor has everything skill points, decent melee, can use medium armour from start + good divine spellcasting. Use the backgroundfeat that gives you Wis bonus on persuasion.
