    Guess that explains my level 0 dwarf that replaces the entire party, the headless Lann, the level 1 skeletal champion that can only wear bardings, etc etc.

    For Demon in particular, its the very first Mythic Quest, Insistent Summons. After you make the Mythic Path Choice for Demons, Hepzamirah speaks your name and summons you, to imprison and torture you. You can resist her summoning for a while, either by doing a Will or Intimidation save, but they get progressively higher. (Last Will Save I had was 44, with a 57 Intimidation save). Eventually you'll succumb and have to flee the prison (while getting some help from another demon, ofc)

    The bug here is that respeccing after choosing said path, will remove a flag or trigger that you are in fact a demon. You will still get summoned, but instead of being teleported to your cell, you and your entire party will be summoned to an island in the middle of nowhere, or inside a wall. The quest simply cannot be completed, and its literally the first Demon Mythic Path one.

    I'm not usually edgy, but I think I'm on the same camp here. I can't understand respecs. If you made a decision in your char build, stick with it, and see what happens.

    They didn't need to provide respec at all. One of the reasons P:K didn't have it is that it's hugely conplex. Obviously.

    Just because you're impressed with halfwits who talk baseless shit all the time doesn't mean everyone else is.

    I think the most consistent way would be to block in-game respec completely after some stage of Mythic progression. Otherwise, people will keep the flags of the path, but remove the consequences, like alignment shift.

    The point of no return, of course, should be shown very explicitly, with the confirmation screen. Also, in Kingmaker in-game respec changed any difficulty to "custom". They should continue this in Wrath.

    And then you find out your class ability is bugged.

    Or an interaction doesn't work as advertised.

    Shelve a playthrough or respec? Or just push through?

    respec should stay until they are sure everything works.
    It also makes it easier to test possible synergies

    That's a good point. To expect it not to cause some problems though is just hard to imagine thinking that.

    Is it?

    They prevent you from switching Mythic paths, unlike in the Beta, so there really shouldn't be anything connected to the plot in it.

    I might be inclined to agree... were it not the level of complexity, bugs and game length.

    In the beta you could. Wasn’t aware you couldn’t since I’m doing Core no respec run.

    Wish I could lol.

    I'm still in chapter 2 and have already seen multiple references to race and deity in dialogs, afair even class. Most in a proper context to specific race/deity, not just some random "In the name of %deity%!". A rare feature in this kind of games, especially considering the staggering amount of said customization options.

    Idk what is wrong or right, but if I dress Lann in that nice shiney mithral chain shirt (0 armor penalties) or even in studded leather, he retains the same number of bow attacks and he gets no penalties. I can't find any button to switch the Flurry of Blows manually, it seems it's always on. Unlike the holic's mod on Kingmaker. So I presume this would be the same for the close combat monk.

    I didn't know this was a problem. I did that yesterday. I picked his +4 strenght and +10 feet movement ability and then took Mythic Weapon Finess so I wanted a more useful Hellknight ability. Most of them are kind of bad, even domain ones.

    Well, to be fair "double reactivity", which you might be experiencing, was a stretch goal in the Wrath Kickstarter. It is nice to see that they actually implemented it.

    The funny part about respec issues, is that using the one from toybox apparently does not cause the Mythic Path trigger issues, compared to using the ingame respec.

    Full respec also allows some feats that are indirectly unlocked to serve as proper requirements for other feats. I.e. you cannot choose Shatter Defenses when leveling up regularly, even if you have the Hex that grants Dazzling Display. But if you respec and pick the levels all at once, it does work. Dazzling Display still stops working after a reset/reload, but Shatter Defenses stays usable.

    It's sad that the Demon Path main mechanics are so underwhelming, because the Demonic Charge is really fucking good. Even at Rank 3 its already 6d6 unholy damage in an aoe, usable every turn, as a move action. Has the same issues as regular abilities that count as move actions though, as in you need to cast it as your last action, or it will keep you from getting a standard action in at all.
    Part of me wants to cheat high saves to see if there is another solution to Insistent Summons if you repeatedly pass the saves, or if its inevitable that Hepzamirah will overcome your willpower/rage and summon you to the Abyss.
