    Yeah, if it is 6 turns, it is fine. It has been a while since I played Normal, but I kinda remember me healing multiple times per fight. I probably remember this part wrong (or it has been changed).

    I'll start a new playthrough with Expeditions shortly. I'll probably go with an assault rifle/heavy armor build. Any major changes I can expect from the base game?

    Be sure to stack up on AoE or stealth. Trust me :negative:

    There are shotguns now, surely that's enough to take care of most AoE needs.

    I wouldn't shy away from some extra grenades.

    I am absolutely fucking dense regarding practical use of some Temporal Manipulation abilities.

    Can someone explain in simple terms the use, advantages,etc. of

    1) Entropic Recurrence

    2) Temporary Rewind

    3) Psycho-Temporal Dilation?

    I am using Premeditation, Psionic Mania coupled with Pyrokinesis and Telekinetic Punch, with the electric trap occasionally and I seem to fare pretty good. Anything that would make use of these even more effective or so?

    Dilation is to slow enemies. Melee are easer to kite.

    Reccurence is great skill, use your strongest attack, than use this to repeat damage, ignoring shields/resistances.

    Rewind is niche ability, have some uses but rare. For example, use it than use skill that damages for % of target hp.

    Works great with hardcore pistol builds too.

    any point of a sword/pistol build, except roleplay?

    Nope. Roleplay only. It could mean though if you make a seriously badass suit of riot armor you could ostensibly focus on dex and then simply run through natives like shit through a goose. Use a custom 44 with explosive ammo to take guys out from afar, and then chop em up.

    They were not exactly made for each other but there is some faint synergy, kinda. Pistols synergize with investing into melee through the Gun-Fu feat, which adds 40% of melee skill to your attacks with pistols in melee range. But then you run into a problem - if the bonus is applied to pistol attacks in melee range, why even bother with the sword at all? One reason is for riposte/parry. Attack with the pistol, switch to the sword at the end of your turn, enjoy increased protection vs. melee and a free sword attack on your next turn. Captain's cutlass would be especially good for this - 50% more damage blocked by parry and up to 3 free attacks. Another reason is to use the sword for decapitations. Swords are more effective for those rare moments when the enemy is wearing an anti-rifle vest, too, or when you don't feel like reloading.

    decapitation needs 7 str which is a heavy cost to pay.

    It's a bit less of an investment if you also go for steadfast aim which requires 5 STR. No investment at all if you decide to wear metal. The build was not going to be optimal anyways.

    Note that this is strictly LARP, it's worse than dodge/uncanny.

    And without 2 swords you can't switch to a better one to riposte, you're stuck with the shitty cutlass, so it's even worse.
