    Trickster into legend for those juicy crits and mirror image. Or deamon for the first part then trickster then legend for the gore attack.

    for long term, trickster for the crit feats. Otherwise go Azata. you get a dragon companion (with spells) which can carry you a long way thru.

    You can't go wrong with Angel. Angelic Halo boosts your entire party's defenses and lowers your enemies' saves, at high levels you also never have to care about energy damage and mind-affecting stuff. The spells are insanely powerful, even if you only use buffs. You can heal, dispel conditions, and become outright immune to everything Communal Ward Against Weakness. Abolish Guile increases your damage by 50% against 90% of the enemies. Overwhelming Flames with Great Cleave clears crowded encounters in a single swing.

    If you're worried about having to be a goody two-shoes, keep in mind that 99% of the times you can lean more on the Lawful part than the Good one of your alignment. I can't remember a situation where you can't act as a merciless punisher.

    Took me 2 months due to a busy work schedule, but I've finally finished it with the 'Legend' mythic path.

    Near the end, I was overthinking it and just ended up sending in my dude solo to clear packs. The carnage was beautiful.

    Big laff at being able to interject during Areelu's judgement by Pharasma, and getting her deleted from existence.


    Still, it's a great game... but I enjoyed Kingmaker more. Kingmaker had more enjoyable companions, a better world map layout and a focus on smaller but more interesting locations compared to WoTR's large cities with little outside of them. Its world breathed more and it felt like a grand adventure.

    Looking forward to Owlcat's next game, although I hope without a quirky minigame like Kingdom Management or Crusade armies.

    So, first, Western whiners robbed me of timed quests.

    Now they are trying to rob me of the most unique part of Owlcat games - the strategic layer.

    When will Russian developers start relying more on Chinese and internal markets? Morteshka showed it is possible; can their success be scaled up to Owlcat levels?..

    I think Kingmaker felt less railroaded and also has a ... better overall atmosphere?

    They both have a lot, but Angel (and Demon too) have more reactivity and content in regards to the main storyline and characters/events attached to it. Lich (and Azata as well) get more outside and around the main storyline since they're not instrinsically connected to the Higher Powers v. Unholy Abyss narrative.

    So is it possible to mix mythic paths? I'd like to go trickster, but the Azata's Zippy and Favorable Magic are really desirable. I'd love to pickup those 2 and do the rest Trickster.

    Devil keeps aeon/azata abilities it had previously

    Any lategame path can keep the trickster exclusive feats it picked earlier (if you respec you'll lose them.)

    Any lategame path can keep the merged spellbook they had as angel/lich (if you respec you'll lose it.)

    That's the only mixing and matching possible

    Same, I enjoyed Kingmaker more. World exploration felt more interesting in Kingmaker and the pace from the start to the end felt right, from fighting lowly bandits in the beginning to fighting powerful fighting fey powers at the end. I really liked Act 1 and Act 2 in Wrath. When Act 3 opened up, I felt the game lost focus. I actually liked Act 4 minus the stupid rotating city mechanic. Act 5 other than the puzzle places was ok, and then it ends on Act 6.
    Of course, I prefer the character building and mythic classes in Wrath, gave the game a lot of options and epicness.

    Other than what's mentioned above, your choice at mythic rank 1 is not tied to your path choice at all. So I know some who choose Danse Macabre for every character just for the Negative level immunity.

    The defence of the tavern was very nicely done, the absence of saves and good cinematic cutscenes added some tension. In RTwP splitting attention between 2-3 attack points and maneuvering the party across the whole yard was intense and satisfying. For sure, selective Grease and Web from Nenio solved the problem with the gate, but still. Seelah looked very epic on the horse; I understand the difficulties of mounted combat in tight quarters, but her charge through the whole yard for the last two arsonists reminded me of Soviet films about the Russian civil war. It was quite a view.

    In general - it is probably one of the most epic scenes in isometric CRPG's so far. Looking forward for the siege of Drezen. Well done Owlcat Games!

    Twice per round, thanks to Greater Quicken Rod.
    Now I wonder, if "God of Arcane Magic", aka Lich could ever compete. Beside getting Wierd earlier.

    Well Azata-specific Fleshmarket fight was nasty. Pure evil.
    Afaik it is not necessary, but still by far nastiest fight in the game that I saw and my only option was to cheese it a bit and leg it from starting point to the more favorable terrain. But I think it is possible to make it noticeably easier if you [Attack] some merchants there beforehand.

    Btw, I absolutely adore Alushinyrra. It is the first real city Owlcat gave us and it is gorgeous. And encounter design is very solid on Hard - handful of fight in each District but none of them could really be called trash. First chapter in the game where amount of shit happening per round on the screen is so high that I spent most of the street fights on TB.

    "The Internet: where men are men, women are men, and children are FBI agents."

    This is even more truth in codex.

    how the cosmic ancap(chaotic good) azata killing slavers and freeing slaves is evil?

    Putting me between four hags that start with Horrid Wilting is evil. Not even mentioning that flying fleshblob with 65+ AC tearing through my frontline like a grass mower. I could dispel him, of course, but that means to survive until my caster's first round.

    Talking about dispels, where the hell that myth "Enemies should prebuff more in WoTR" comes from? Everyone and their grandma in this city are buffed with 4-5 spells at least but most of the important specimens come with the list of 30+ buffs from the couple of classes. Pathetic Quasit, Latverk and that fleshblob from the market are prime examples.

    Or it is the grand power of Core (with additional behaviors off by default) in action?
