    I am just doing the Threshold map. It is very irritating for Lich due to

    I have an in-depth mechanical question here:

    Show Spoiler
    Is the Demon Graft affected by Magic Nullification and/or Aeon Crystal Mind?

    If anyone knows if it is a mind-affecting spell, let me know as well.

    I just checked the WotR wiki and noticed that there are no new spells for the basic sorcerer/wizard. Are there a lot of new spells via other means at least for the original base classes? I guess mythic paths and some other stuff offers some new spells.

    I kept thinking DC gaze does not help Aeon himself due to description of the ability. But it seems it does.

    There is some new spells, but not a lot of them. Magic/Greater Magic weapon is important addition in its ridiculous implementation (even +1 version stacks with your weapon enhancement bonus), but those were already present in Eldritch Arcana/CotW mods, so I had not even considered them "new".

    Not as ridiculous as Magic Armor spells. Magic Weapon at least stops at +5 total weapon enchantment, Magic Armor goes beyond and if you also use a shield that is easy "free" +10 to armor bonus

    I had a similar random encounter, except without the lich. Right from the start, the mammoths were so close that they didn't need to take a single step in order to attack my party. Very realistic.

    Unfortunately, poor encounter design isn't limited to random encounters. Far from it.

    I can't hit them, and they can't hit me. The only thing that made it bearable was trickster intimidation stun and negative energy dmg on MISS Scythe.

    How am I supposed to deal with his unstopable 2x lighting that ignores all resistances and murders half my party in one turn? Do I need to turn off TB and just run back until duration of that shitty ability expires?

    Playing Cavalier, I will say this game feels better balanced than Kingmaker. Not that that's a huge accomplishment.

    Cav is still pretty bugged, in TB you frequently get stuck on corners and lose a turn, and half the time you can't even attack at all. On the plus side spirited charge is completely busted--if you score a crit you're supposed to add the multipliers then subtract 1. So a 2x charge and 2x crit becomes a 3x hit, but this game doubles it twice for 4x damage, or 6x with a triple crit weapon. So it's mostly gimped but occasionally hilarious. We'll see how much I can min max once I get Mounted mastery (add mount strength to charge damage) and switch to 2-handed fighter for Overhead chop.

    Once again I see the game is a betray-a-thon and you are actively punished for using premade characters. While the NPCs seem to have better stats their builds are arguably even worse than KM, since they come into the party later they're harder to salvage. I do applaud the game for giving you quite a selection of spellcasters off the bat. On the other hand that means if your main isn't melee then Seelah basically needs to carry the whole team.

    And FYI for anyone wondering yes crane wing is still stupidly broken

    ACT 4 has major memory leak issues where everything becomes unresponsive and sometimes can't even access/enter a door. Can't play for more than an hour before having to exit and restart the game.

    I had no problems with memory leaks in Act 4. But Drezen in acts 3/5 was unbearable, this whole fucking city is just one massive memory leak.

    Just a few points from what I have played with azata if you want to go for it. Most DC increasing stuff from azata just flat out doesn't work.
    -Ode to miraculous magic does not increase will based DCs (the spell pen part of the spell works)
    -Believe in yourself you apparently only get in your spellbook if you fulfill certain sub-path : I followed the subpath that acts according to the advice of early sunset and I did not get this spell. It might be that some of the choices you make during the act 3 mythic quest also are involved in this. Regardless you can access the buff through 'Chaotic Healing'. And it also does not work properly, should be giving you +1 stat/ 4 azata caster level, instead gives +1 stats/4 mythic ranks, which is a lot worse.
    -The azata spell that restores spellbooks up to level 7 doesn't work either, I have read (havent gotten it yet)
    -Haven't gotten to the song that is supposed to buff DCs of the whole party yet but it could be borked as well.

    Even with all that the path still strong very strong for DC casters. Favorable magic is insane for DC based stuff, however, any spell that leaves a hazard (so most conjuration crowd control spells) will not be affected and any saves that are triggered after the initial cast of any spell will also not be affected.

    Probably the damn Unity engine is the culprit.

    OK I finally finished the game on core difficulty with a Lich. I've done whole Threshold and what happens after with only one rest. The last battle was crazy and overdone.
    Show Spoiler
    Areelu has like 5000 HP with all the automatic heals and then that shit with 3 copies where each has 70 armor, wtf is that. . In the end I could not kill a single of the copies, and all my characters died except the Lich in the battle vs those 3 lol. I suppose you are meant to kill all 3 copies before Areelu dies so you don't need to sacrifice yourself but they overdid the battle. I don't remember any previous BG like game with such crazy overdid last battle.
    Luckily Lich can sacrifice his thingy with part of his soul so he gets the "good" end.

    Finally decided to respec and respec is broken. It lets you pick feats and then they disappear. Next level up you get offered the same one.
