    No, just a collection of words that will trigger people ;d My PC is actually a Cleric/Rogue (shocking, I know) going for being a Legend. Speaking of the mythic paths, they feel very limiting. Most character concepts which are actual people and not caricatures won't fit into any of the non-Legend mythic paths.

    Chapter 1 is a real wash if you rolled a Mage (Like I Did). Things get better in Chapter 2, but beware; random encounters on the streets can be brutal if you're unlucky with what demons you get.

    Mages scale really well, lots of interesting mythic feats and abilities for them. Melee characters don't have many though, in my opinion only last stand is really good.

    Go back ~20 years and you would think it was a solved problem in video games.

    For those just getting into the game don't do what I did and play the tavern defense quest in turn-based, you will thank me later.
    By the way is there a point to the tower museum key? I looked around the place a few times and couldn't find out what to do with it.

    Yep. I will be honest. Kingmaker had way better companions. Jubilost, Linzi, the DLC tiefling, even teh companions which I din't liked like Octavia, I liked her story. This game, I only liked Arueshalae, Regil and and Ember(A bit) so far.

    Strahd in 2E disagrees. SAdly in 5E he is too sissy and weak

    Just endure. When you get animate dead and other mid level spells, mages become way better. Also, play smart on low levels. For example, exploiter wizards can use powerful exploits and will not run out of spells as quickly as another low level magic user. Instead of fireballs and other offensive spells, buff your party members. You will gonna be way more useful casting mirror image in your self, enlarge person in your companion, blur, etc.

    Also, turn off XP sharing and hire a merc. I'm playing as a Cruomancer and reached tier 8 magic in chapter 2 by merging my spellbook with Lich.

    Okay, I've had it with these companions. Tell me, Codex, which classes complement the Swarm? Do you have to be a caster to get the most out of it?

    Yeah, currently my mage is just a greasy grease flinger. I know he will get better, but say in BG a low level mage gets carried by others, here I feel the other party members just suck. The only semi-reliable one is the black female paladin, but one crit and she is history too.

    And I'm on that defense mission. Jesus wept. Compared to my paladin from the beta, it's like night and day for some reason.

    What if that is the point? Zealots lost 4 crusades and are losing the 5th, so may be the bunch of misfits will actually help? It might be the modern agenda of Paizo writers, but it seems to be working.

    You can actually bypass the entire Tavern Defense shit and you end up getting more XP and rewards for it. I managed to do it by just going from one quest to another and only resting twice. Both times when I rested I just ran back to the tavern since resting on the world map or in another area takes up a lot of time so it's faster to just double back to the tavern and rest there.

    Unfortunately Swarm is a late game path so you won't be able to access it for a good chunk of the game. Alternatively you can go Lich which gives you unique companions who keep their mouths shut and don't interject with some shitty reddit dialogue every time you talk to someone.

    I only rested twice (9h each) and I still got intercepted by the messenger when I was done with like half the areas.

    This is why I suggest hiring mercs. I have a druid with a triceratops and a kineticist as companions. Kineticists even on low level aren't bad. And when you get the lich path, you get a skeleton pet. My pet has almost 40 AC without any buff.

    He is wrong. Very wrong. That(the brothel) is the LEAST degrading "romance" option.

    Pick a prepared caster. Spontaneous ones get their spells 1 lv later.
    For the full arcane book, pick Spell Master. It is impossible to fuck yourselves up with this one. No bad school/spell picks. The better bond. A power surge just when you need it. It is comparatively powerful around lv 5, i.e. before first mythic rank. And it isn't even bad later on. It has more slots than a Thassi specialist in the highest spell lvs you can cast, and way more freedom.

    20 years ago, games were made by people who liked complex stories and were making games they wanted to play. I suspect current generation can't even pirate books properly.

    Did you go out of your way to visit all the areas on the map? I only did the plot relevant areas and was able to take a second rest without the messenger coming up to me.

    Jornos never play past the tutorial, so all progressive agenda has to be presented from the start. Otherwise, it is pointless to have it in game.
