What do you know, they fixed Sword of Heavens activation when mounted.

....but more importantly, Dazzling Display still doesn't work mounted :(

Mithral Heavy Shields were too heavy – fixed

No Mithril Heavy Shields were fine. It was the Tower that was too heavy lol.

The Promise of Power ability was granted by the wrong relic – fixed
No, it wasn't on the wrong Relic, it was Standard Action instead of Free.

Seriously, can they get anything right?

The above are the first relevant fixes I've seen in a year and they still fucked them up, while leaving complete classes non-functional.

Are the DLCs even worth bothering with? I saw from online discussions that Inevitable Excess was considered to be absolutely shit.

Has there been an estimate as to when the roguelike DLC#3 is out? I haven't kept up with this game but I want that before starting play.

What spells should i pick to deal with mind-immune? Im going to play Demon DC ILLUSION Sorc. Hard and maybe Unfair if it gets too easy.

So far i think Sirocco, Hellfire, Slow and Baleful. Never used the latter two much, is stagger from Slow as OP as it seems? Does Baleful works on everything?
Then maybe i should grab another Expanded Arsenal: Transmutation, for Slow and Baleful both need it. Maybe even pick EA: Transmutation first, because Baleful is = Phantasmal(level higher but works on mind immune) and Slow is AOE(Wierd is only level 18)?

Any other spell suggestions? What do you use the most on DC casters?

Wolj makes a decent Transmuter. There’s a hat that lets you cast Slow swift and Obsidian Flow + Feather Step, Mass is a pseudostagger plus it turns on Fire Items. You can also go Conj to bypass SR. Stagger is great and there are a couple things that apply it no save. Freedom does override it in vanilla tho (fixed in TTT).

In general though beating mind-immune enemies is mostly about just nuking and bashing I think. CAM’s Hampering Hex is not mind-affecting (Evil Eye is).

I wanna go pure no mods. Maybe instead EA: Transmutation i should go Expanded Arsenal: Evocation for Sirocco, Chain Lightning, Stormbolts against mind-immune?

You'll probably want an ascendant element to go with that.

There's a pair of rings that give a spontaneous caster access to fire and ice spells on top of their chosen set, and also set of bracers that you can find that gives access to lightning based magic spells and allows all damage to be converted into electricity damage, which pairs particulatly well with ascendant element.

I haven't been following this. When can I expect the Codex review?. All I want to really know is whether the game's story is tolerable, or too woke to bear. Or is the writing just crap.*

Features and gameplay sound pretty awesome.

*Wasn't there something about stretched out asses in this game? Or was that the Obsidian one? Tyranny I think. Trying to remember the line someone quoted on the Codex. I think it was: "I'm gonna fist your ass till it prolapses". Yeah, think that was it. So just wondering if Owlcat played that, got inspired, and said "We will give the Codex what they want: butthurt".

The writing is crap. The wokelism is mostly quarantined, one-dimensional, and forced (so entirely unpersuasive and not even trying to be), though in your face up front it can after that largely be avoided depending on party comp. Of more concern it crowds out whatever good writing may have been there so that little survives (mainly in Daeran and Reg's companion stories, and Lann is what Eder's should have been though pretty perfunctory. Greybor underdeveloped as well despite promising fodder). Likewise in personnel decisions such as skimping on editors and axing Avellone/playtesters.

If Ascendant Element is relevant you're not doing enough damage. If you want to go Evo I'd focus on Meta and the Meta Mythics over Ascendant, unless you want to go Lightning. There's a Rod that converts all damage to Unholy (and for whatever reason all the foes are Evil but still take full damage from Unholy) while also Maximizing it.

But isn't he better off just using rods for meta? He's playing a sorcerer who focuses on illusion primarily and thinking of something to use in specific circumstances when facing mind-immune enemies. Isn't it more of an investment to buy a feats and a mythic feat for something you're doing as a secondary function of your character? Also, casting metamagic as a full round action can be annoying when your target is sitting just out of range. Just spending one mythic ability seems much cheaper than buying feats that aren't as effective for most illusion magic on top of a mythic feat (which are more valuable than abilities) which only works on them rather than his primary function for his caracter.
