Question: I can select a feat every 4 levels and after level 8 my charcaters have almost all of the interesting ones. Is this a Solasta or a 5th edition thing ?
Both. 5E has a longer list of (generally better) feats, but you don't usually want more than one or two of them. However, this shouldn't be a problem, since improving your abilities should be your priority.

So whats the deal with the followers you can pick up in Lost Valley. I have Lord Hammond tagging along but he doesn't level up, doesn't speak and I don't know how to get rid of him short of having him die.

Answering survey. Seems like for Solasta devs, every D&D CRPG which I've played except Dark Sun : Shattered lands(lv 3~9) and Eye of the Beholder 1 is "epic level". I recently ended Ravenloft : Strahd possession at lv 11 and then imported my save to Stone prophet which ended on lv 13.

I don't think that lv 12+ works well in 5E. In later levels, Solasta fells like almost a Oblivion style slog. But the class which I like to see the most is obvious warlock. Repealing blast + Eldritch blast in a game full of vertilicaty seems amazing.

2E and 5E are far different beasts in terms of progression and level scaling. You've noted this yourself on innumerable occasions, so I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Converting those campaigns would involve a level squish, other than the truly epic campaigns (e.g. MOTB, BG2, etc.).

High level adventures can work, but i doubt they could manage it since even current encounters are not challenging. My greatest grief with solasta is the uniimited rests, everything was trivial in the last DLC.

BG1 is low to mid level, BG2 is mid to high level, but yes, considering how enemies lost really nasty abilities, you would need to reduce PC levels if you are adapting most 2E and 3E stuff in 5E. Ravenloft Strahd possession vampires and other mid/high tier undead tends to have really nasty abilities, like being able to inflict negative levels.

I could't imagine a way to beat this game without at least a cleric in your party. Everything else, thieves, mages or fighters are disposable. Negative plane protection and turn undead are must have stuff.

Agreed. KoTC2 style limited rests would be a :incline:

SOLASTA FUTURE DLC SURVEY: WHAT'S NEXT?

Heya folks!

It's been a year since Solasta 1.0 launched on Steam, and what a great year it was! From adding the Sorcerer, Barbarian, Druid & Half-Orc, to increasing the level cap from 10 to 12, to adding Quests, Dialogs, Monsters & Items Editors in the Dungeon Maker, to releasing a full new campaign with Lost Valley...

But we're not done quite yet! And that's why as we've always done in the past, we want to hear your opinion to make sure we're creating the game both with you and for you, so take the short survey now!

And don't worry - we are and will always be fixing bugs when we can, even if we're working on larger updates or DLCs!

I had the same lol. 5-10 is the sweet spot for having enough toys to play with. I do like low-level, but only in the context of anticipation of more toys to play with in a larger game, and I doubt they're actually going to do another 1-10 adventure. "Epic" - meh, you're always getting into a situation where you lose sight of the "basics" and developers' imaginations start either scraping the bottom of the barrel or jumping the shark.

Fedora Master - I had the same for that too, though more politely worded. :)

The question regarding controller support tells me what direction they're going with this and it ain't ours.

Yeah, totally. Because if people reply putting it at the bottom, that won't impact their decisions.

Out of the three new proposed races only the gnomes are ok in my book.

The tieflings are the new drow, - the race of choice for every special snowflake Mary Sue.
I don't care for them myself, but at least I can see who would pick them to play.

But can someone explain the appeal of the fucking Dragonborns?
They are the most retarded race that exists in D&D (and it already has the elves of all flavors), why there are so many people want them added?

Replying just to agree with this more.
:bro::bro::bro:

Especially the dragonborn. I've hated that race since the first time I saw it.

If. Knowing modern CRPG "gamers" they very much want controller support.

Furries.
Not fucking the dragonborns, the fucking dragonborns.

Some power gamers players like to play as Mari sue half dragons in 3.5E. And in 5E, they decided to make a race to attract this people. Some games inspired by 3.5E like DDO did included this race and is one of the most popular paid races.

Out of the three new proposed races only the gnomes are ok in my book.

The tieflings are the new drow, - the race of choice for every special snowflake Mary Sue.

Agreed that gnomes are the best race. But disagree about drow. Anyone who played 5E can confirm here if DROW has the ridiculous benefits which it had in 2E? Mainly to resist magic? And the crippling weakness vs light? If this weakness exists in 5E and the AI is smart to use drow weaknesses against drow, it can be interesting. As having your cleric casting daylight against vampires would put your drow at disadvantage too.

If drow comes without the disadvantage of drows, then yes, they are merely Mari Sue elves. And people should distrust them hence they should have penalty(disadvantage) in all social checks. They are from a race famous for raiding surface and enslaving populations, living in a very evil society near abominations.

BTW, one of my favorite side characters in Baldur's Gate saga is Drizzt, a drow. And yes, he appears in other games Menzoberranzan and you can even have him in your party for a short time. A lv 15 ranger with two +3 weapons in a game where you probably will end up at lv 10~13 depending on the class is incredible powerful.

Holy shit. You like Drizzt? And you're admitting it??
