    Ah. Yes I agree. Was saying more or less the same to Thac0 on the Shoutbox today, I thoroughly enjoyed Drezen. Did it entirely TB, only switched RT for the brief times it derped. Fuck those giant tho, they definitely kept playing RTwP.

    There's mind fog spam which might hurt you if you rely on that strategy.

    I tried playing Drezen tactically with turn-based, but it was so slow, buggy, and laggy. Game is made for prebuff max and murder everything quickly in real time. Only time when I used TB now is in ambush battles and random encounters.

    The game is quite easy in turn based mode. Since I prefer it over RTwP (its a nice mode also), I recommend playing on hard.

    RTwP - Core Difficulty

    Turn Based - Hard

    That X in Drezen Dungeon that summoned demon was a tricky fucking battle... had to reload few times and click through all options to kill x. Had to really on Ember with a scream to kill X. I liked how you can (need) to interrupt it. That is particular case where TB can fuck you over with initiative.

    Blackwater isn't any more fun the second time around.

    I think it's my joint-least favourite location.

    1. They decided to fix respec on a case-by-case basis. It means more game breaking bugs and patches are ahead. Don't use respec if you want to play without problems.
    2. They are quick to react to deep architecrural problems. This is very good.
    3. I will play the game after 2 weeks without patches. Promise!

    Looks kinda optimal. One caster can give other buffs and you'll be golden.

    I still find it unclear how someone could do, say, the Jeslyn fight on Core without knowing beforehand what it entails AND with the bugged out swarms at release.

    People say a lot of shit yet I see no evidence of any of it. Making a short video of these fights wouldn't be hard...

    So far all I've seen is
    "Fight x is hard how did you do it? - - - > Silence
    " How do I build y optimally?" - - - > Silence

    Weird, huh

    Do they fix bugs faster in this than in kingmaker? I've waited two years for pathfinder "refined" edition and there were still obvious bugs. I hope i won't have to wait two years with this one -though it looks more coincise in its scope, so possibly less stuff intertwined to patch.

    I have 2 casters and 4 melee chars. I also have 3 pets which you can give crusader buff and cold iron buff to and buff their AC to 40.

    Yes but by that time you're level 9 and have access to rod of extend or metamagic, that means attributes buffs last 18 minutes. You need 2 casts x rest top. Barkskin lasts one hour and half with no fuss needed. The few buffs that are counted in rounds like haste or Divine Power are either plentiful (and swift, in case of haste, you should have the hat) or very situational and personal (DP). As I said, I thoroughly enjoyed playing it TB. I gloated in it. It lasted as long as the whole ToEE, probably had more fight in it, was less (lol) buggy and I really, really, needed it. Gawd that was good.

    This game is a lot more like Arcanum now than Kingmaker, don't worry.

    Uh.

    Depends if you have inquisitors to help you. I had them, saw jeslyn use summon spell and charged her with everyone before she could cast anything because you have haste unless you failed to save wizards.

    I did it first try

    I don't see why Jeslyn should be a fight that you can do on the first try no matter what, especially since he is the closes thing ch.1 has to a boss.

    Somewhere on page 40 something, I posted a few screenshots of how I did the Jeslyn fight on core fast and easy. People were bitching about that fight even then, but nobody cared or asked anything about what I did and since I consider myself a poor player I thought it would be wiser to mind my own shit from then on.

    First, when I got there I encountered no bug iirc. As how I did it, I have a merc Druid. As soon as I realized what was happening, I ate a round of AoO and retreated. Used all the summon consumables I had found (the Mug, the Ability on my main to summon a Babau and a couple scrolls) and started using my high level summon, which all bypass DR, as does my animal companion.

    No, use a scion with outflank as Battle prowess, much better!

    On those you’re just helping the Crusaders and cleaning up the stragglers the oh shit Shadow Votary stop the PhantWeb or pack of Evokers at 2 O’Clock fry that Enervation! But I mean by then Daeran has Spontaneous Resto so nothing you can’t deal with.

    The Shadow Votary in the Tavern did manage to wipe my team in Alpha with PWeb and Fireballs so you can’t just mail it in but you’re never in serious danger if you don’t.

    That said coming in the Temple the back way is… not good.

    I'm playing a Quarterstaff Master and just noticed it's actually a double weapon. Does this means it's affected by Two Handed Weapon AND two weapon fighting strategies at the same time?
