    First playthrough serves to test the waters, so I try to do all companion quests as to know which would fit better thematically on subsequent playthroughs.

    On my subsequent Devil playthrough, I'll use a custom party for the most part and either not recruit (e.g. Nenio and Ember) or execute a few companions (e.g. Woljif and Cam).

    Des did post useful info, but it's hard to deny he was a rabid fanboy.

    I never really understood how he avoided getting the fanboy tag. Others got it for far less.

    Dropping him is not that hard. I just facetanked it with 2 last standers on first try. Disabling regeneration is where things got tricky for me.

    Please, do yourself a favor and just spam those scorching rays and fireballs. At first, they only kill a couple of gargoyles (still speeding up crusade fights by something like 600%), but after a few level ups of your general they delete entire stacks in a single turn. The crusade minigame is unplayable without those direct-damage spells.

    There should be a recruitable general with Scorching Ray and Master of Maneuver (the "stone wizard" guy), pick him because those are both useful perks. The "black woman wizard" is also fine, since she has Scorching Ray and you can select Master of Maneuver later.

    It's pretty amusing, that in copying HOMM, they also managed to copy over the absurd OPness of magic heroes.

    I've spent a lot of time concurrently trying out lots of differerent classes and combinations out of curiosity. IOW I have two "main" runs (a good and an evil) and about a dozen other characters at various stages.

    Scorching Ray is hilariously OP. Surely they're going to nerf it at some point?

    And on that note, I absolutely love how they've written this devil character. He's just the perfect representative for a race of sly bureaucrats that know how to flatter when it suits their needs.

    You can't beat her in melee without minmaxing builds. What you can do is rest, remember all the summons/nukes you can and kill her with magic while she's killing the summons. She doesn't have the Evasion feat, so you can even choose which spells to use. (unlike the certain dragon later, which has the untouchable AC and evasion, so you have a very limited choice of spells)

    Also, if you have Cammy, be sure to use Creeping Doom, it ignores pretty much everything.

    Let's hope they don't. I can't imagine slogging through that pathetic excuse for a minigame without being able to instantly delete 3 stacks of enemies with a fireball. A nerf to direct-damage spells is what would probably convince me to download the auto-win mod.

    By the way, I'm guessing that rank V is the maximum for the various crusade stats?

    Just noticed my magic negro sosiel has domain spells for all his gods domains, including ones from his impossible domain. For example he has air domain spells like shocking touch and lightning bolt even though I didnt take air domain. Is this bugged?

    Desiderius was right about the literacy levels in the states, judging by how many didn't get the irony in this post.

    Impressions of rerolling with a lawful evil Cavalier:

    The game clearly hates me - second time I beat the water elemental on Core, and second time I don't receive the achievement. Probably a GOG-only bug.

    I read people saying here that the game is much easier if you start as a melee tank or a damage delaer, instead of caster, but I never realized how dramatic the difference is. My Wizard MC was useless compared to the cavalier.

    Indeed, stuffing a game with magic resistant and damage-reducing enemies right from the tutorial tends to diminish the already low utility of vancian casters or at least limit them to buffers and ground-casters of reflex-attacking spells which circumvent magic resistance.

    People meming that "oh you play on TB, so you play the game two difficulty levels lower hurr durr" while they are fucking up things left and right with their gay-ified versions of barbarians and rangers should try the game with a vancian caster - up to level 5 it felt like having one less party member.

    Core is actually not a big deal at all. Maybe only Fedora should stick to Normal.

    You can create a full party in PoE 1/2 not long after the tutorial. It's very cheap.

    You can roll custom party members in PKM, but I don't remember the prices, never tried it. In WoTR it's pretty expensice, I think one costs 4500 at level 3, when you first get access to the guy who can sell them to you.

    My Wizard is a little over 70 hours and I just finished Lost Chapel. Trying out the first two chapters with a new character felt interesting to try out, and I also had a character idea in my head, so I couldn't resist rerolling. I'll probably get back to the wizard, have to try out classical lichdom :obviously:

    Only in the act 3.

    The "stone wizard" and "black woman wizard" are your holy saviors from the Darkness of Crusade System, so they deserve to be mentioned by names - Setsuna Shy and Chief Ageboya.

    By the way I laughed hard at the UI design inanity of not letting you see the name of your general after you assign him/her. If anyone has found a way to see their names afterwards and I'm wrong, please correct me.
