    I was pissed about Black Water's enemies because of that high AC until i remembered that Ember is more than just a Fire Nuke and has AC debuff.. Black Water was a piece of cake with Evil Eye.
    Evil Eye is stonk.

    What are rogues supposed to do when everyone else gets access to the same skills, often better access?

    PF is pretty good at making rogues not be a dead weight.

    Meh, I don't like how a miniboss is time-gated, meaning that if you do TOO well and are too fast, you aren't going to see him. Obviously this is minor since it's very early game, but still

    I don't get it. They don't let you use divine spells from the lich spellbook if you merge it with an arcane class (they don't even give you the don't know arcane spells, only the lich unique ones), but they also don't let you use your favorite/specialized school spell slot on necromancy for the arcane necro spells the lich book gives. What it's the point of going necro specialist since the start then? You better go anything else (there are by far better specialist school powers that the ones necro get), pick any school focus feats that are not necro and then, when you go lich just pick the mythic feat that gives all the schools feats that you got to be applied to another school too(necro for the case).

    I was so hyped to be able to go beyond CL 20 but the more i understand how the game it's working the more i'm being disappointed. It was so much asking to no be gimped choosing the more obvious path? Like at last let me use the fuking school slots if the spells are all from the fucking necromancer school wich i was specialized since lvl1.

    I needed to rant. Sorry.

    The real under lying problem is HIGH FANTASY.

    There's several RPG systems that use a dual system: dodging + resistance to damage and they work properly, the problem though is when you go into high fantasy worlds. D&D3.5 and Pathfinder "epic" levels breaks all balance in any armour system and there's plenty of value bloat flying around just to race against ever increasing DPS.

    You can compare that to Runequest's system i.e., there while levelling held meaning, becoming a demi god was out for the question, meanwhile a level 20 character in Pathfinder can kill literally thousands of level 1 fodder.

    The game made this really neat setup of having to disarm generators to disable Tesla Canons and disable the force shield that Hundred Face is inside but then my character just Cast Haste, Use Demonic Charge inside the Field and two round kill him...

    LMAO Well Played Owlcat.

    Is it normal to suffer so much as a necromancer in crusader mode?? I get 5 units weekly reinforcement and sometimes after battle I get between 20 and 40 basic undead troops. I also got 15 vampires in an event but they aren't anything special so the whole time I had to rely on random mercenaries. A I doing something wrong here?

    And this, kids, is why you DON'T give stats to things that aren't supposed to be killed

    You will need to combine everything together as Necro. But in the end it does not really matter, your army leader mage will kill most with nuke spells.

    You must be a big fan of 5E, since the concept of "bounded accuracy" is built on that very argument.

    Speaking of weirdly statted enemies - I really don't like how they've implemented a Skyrim-esque difficulty set-up where late level generic mooks will be individually way more powerful than the bosses you fight earlier (who, by lore, should be far more powerful).

    The enemy difficulty don't directly scales to your level, but they do scale pretty linearly with the game, without care for narrative weight or immersion of any kind. I don't recall them doing this as much in Kingmaker.

    Show Spoiler
    The mooks you fight at the end of Act 5 will way higher stats than the Demon Lord bosses you fight earlier (Baphomet, Deskari, Areshkagal, etc.) The Gallu Stormcallers have 1500 hp (maybe double the demon lords?), and none of the Demon Lords have the 80-ish AC that the Vavakia Vanguard has

    Same what skirmish units do in wargames. They are useful, but can't fight heavy infantry of heavy cavalry.

    I probably shouldn't be carrying around 1500 lbs of chainmail and leather armor, but that's almost 1k gold!

    ...greed is truly a sin.
