why didn't anyone tell me that this game was so BASED?

>>265283548
I hope you're playing DA.
>>
>>265283548
If you aren't already playing one, keep in mind that once you max out the Ranger vocation you get to shoot predator missiles.
>>
>>265283931
I am running a Ranger right now, but I've been swapping through vocations. Are you telling me that it gets better than pumping ten arrows a second into everything? Because I didn't think it could.
>>
>>265283548
I remember the first time I met the drake. It was also at night and I just nope.jpg and ran full speed all the way to the mine.
>>
Wut game dis
>>
>>265284145
You get something called "Gamble Draw" That lets you shoot an extremely powerful arrow that you manually aim.

It's probably the best attack in the game for hitting pinpoint weak spots like Dragon hearts and Cyclops eyes.

Remember to equip blast arrows when you use it to make it feel like a missile.

>>265284241
Dragons Dogma.

We told you every fucking day.

I want to finish this game but there seems to be so many fucking side missions that I'll almost certainly miss.
That and I always feel too fucking weak.

Enjoy that shit, once you get high level, enemies DON'T scale and you destroy everything until you get to Bitterblack, where the cycle restarts.
>>
>>265283763
Why?
>>
>>265284437
There's a point where that shifts and you are a god among peasants
>>
>>265284543
Because of the base game improvements and the new dungeon that you can't buy as DLC in a tried and true Capcom fashion.
>>
>>265284437
You can't really finish all quests in one NG. You can go into NG+ which keeps stuff like merchant stock unlocked and transfers your stuff over. (Including Portcrystals you dropped around gransys)
>>
>>265284696
What are the base game improvements?
>>
>>265284707
>which keeps stuff like merchant stock unlocked
it actually unlocks it no matter if you did the quests or not.
>>
>>265284437
You don't need to do all the random notice board quests. You could just grab a guide to not miss any unique quests that are started by NPCs.

I've been playing as fighter for 50 hours. What's a good vocation I should try?
>>
>>265284929
Assassin.
Fuck the haters, dire gouge is fucking great.
>>
>>265284773
more and cheaper fast travel items. menus load quicker. some balancing.
>>
>>265284929
Ranger. Dat Tenfold Flurry
>>
>>265284929
Mystic Knight. It's like Fighter but with strong magic and enchantments.
>>
>>265284929
>>265284981
i second assassin, very fun class.
>>
>>265284929
Ranger is solid, Assassin is good if you want to be OP.

It's up to you really, I personally love the fighter, it's got really fun skills and can handle any problem thanks to perfect blocks and hindsight cancels.
>>
>>265285024
Can assassin shift into Mystic Knight? Also how does it work? Can you cast and hold a sword at the same time.

I bought DA a while ago and only get to play it at a friends house, killed some random ogre last night in the woods west of Gran Soren. Really dig how there's just giant monsters out there in the wilderness.
>>
If you've been playing fighter for 50 hours your magic is probably fucked anyway, so stay in red and yellow classes.
>>
>>265285192
You can play every class on one character, all it really affects is character growths which doesn't really matter in the long run since BBI gear is strong as fuck.
>>
>>265285192
You can be every single vocation, I'd say it's even encouraged to give them each a fair shot.
>>
>>265284437
the game doesn't scale to your level, so that means your gonna get the same exact enemies with the same exact power levels everywhere you go. So after a while you just become a god and one shot almost everything. So enjoy being mortal while you can.

DA? What game is this?
>>
>>265285864
Dragon's Dogma. DA stands for Dark Arisen, the expansion pack.
>>
>>265285864
Dragon Age.
>>
>>265285959
Thanks m8
>>265285969
I knew it wasn't dragon age.
>>
>>265285584
they have, like, semi-scaling
basically, level 23 people will probably fight level 20-25 bandits, as well as a few 10-15 level bandits. Also, there are, for example, NO level 5 dwarven centurions, so you WILL need to be a fairly high level character to fight those

Mystic Knight casts its spells directly from your sword/mace or from your shield. You actually have less exclusive staff spells than shield and sword spells.
>>
>>265286143
did you just confuse DD with Skyrim?
>>
>>265284773

Even without the base improvements, Bitterblack Isle is a crazy large and fun endgame expansion. Beat the game and go there for amazing fights, good loot and incredible atmosphere/lore.

You need a staff for based High Brontide though

if I want to be a strong Mystic Knight, am I better off levelling as a Mage or as a Fighter?

Or should I just go MK as soon as possible and get my levels as one?

Get to gran soren and immediately switch to Sorcerer.

Play up to lvl 50 or 100, whatever you want. Get the magic boosting augment.

Switch to mage and max out that vocation and purchase that magic boosting augment.

You now have MAX POWER as a magic character.

If you want to play a more block centric MK. Consider getting the Prescience augment from the fighter vocation.
>>
>>265287149
well, I still want to use my sword too, I won't just be spamming spells.

I think I'll just max the fighter, mage and sorcerer vocations and see where I can go from there.
>>

Get a mace, nigga

>>265287527
I LIKE swords though anon

>>265287634
It doesn't matter since its a single player game lol.

This is the only game where I feel like I was running with an actual DnD party.
>>
>>265287634
With the best mace in the game, you end up dealing about 100 less damage than a Warrior with the max level greatswords/hammers. Keep in mind you're still hitting with the sword moveset, so basically you're dealing greatsword level damage at a ridiculously high rate. Stack Abyssal Anguish on top of that and you become fucking invincible

>>265286172
Sounds really neat, might get into that when I get bored of Assassin.

also I got to Gran Soren and I'm pretty sure I handed the snake head to the Duke, and I got a whole list of quests from this guy. Do I just need to finish them all to progress the game? I can only play while at a friends house so I want to make some headway.
>>
>>265288823
They're optional. You actually have to go all the way north to some far off tower to collect a special item and bring back to the duke to continue the story.
You have to start it by finding the small fort to the North and talk to Mercedes.

The wyrm hunt quests are what you want to do to progress the main story. Some of your side quests will auto fail if you don't complete them by certain points in the main quest though. Not much you can do about it if you can't play at your own pace though.

How good is battlemage guys? How should I level?

Recently started with a mage, fun so far but I hope spells get more interesting

Dude, what?
If you mean a mage focused on attack rather than support, it's awful. Otherwise, I have no idea what you mean.

Mystic Knight is great. The spells are pretty situational though and a lot of them only pay off if you have prep time in a battle to set them up properly. I play my MK more physical oriented and just no nuts in melee combat after buffing myself, then drop the occasional Stone Forest (earthquake type spell) to take out physical immune enemies or stun big monsters. I rarely use any of the more popular spells like Great Cannon since they're so boring to actually use.

Don't ever play mage if you want to be a pure caster, upgrade to Sorcerer. It's basically the same thing but more offensive oriented and it has all the best and flashiest spells in the game.

>>265289452
He's probably talking about Mystic Knight. Battlemage normally means the same thing as a spellblade.
>>
>>265284707
You can do all the non-board quests in one go, it's just easy as hell to miss stuff.
>>
why won't crapcom port this to pc?
it's not like there isn't a market for it.

knowing this game does so many things I love and not being able to play it is suffering.
>>
>>265289657
>>265289841
Joke's on you if he didn't mean mystic knight.
>>
>>265289925
>why won't crapcom port this to pc?
Because capcom.
>>
>>265289931
Nah, joke's actually on him if he didn't mean MK since only a retard would use the world "battlemage" and not mean MK.
>>
>>265290020
they have done pc ports though, so why does this one get a different treatment?
>>
>>265283548
Is this skyrim?
>>
>>265290094
Because Capcom hates you. They hate you so fucking much.

>>265283548

>>265289563
Small fights are okay, but they do boil down to "knock enemy down, wail on them". Still, the whole crowd control and keeping your pawns alive thing keeps it pretty fun. I got through some rough bandits by playing smart, which felt nice.

>>265289085
>>265288975
Ah, thanks, I forgot about that quest completely. I'll try it after I finish a few of the side ones. Also, can you get to the fort and defend it from goblins while avoiding that dragon? Every time I got near there he flys up and just fucks my crew up hard. Started working on the magic book quest instead of that one.

Also, what's the deal with the whole pawn thing, does mine automatically show up in the rift for people of the same level or do I need to send him away to do that stuff? Also I seem to be able to get companions for like 0 RC.
>>
>>265290228
Well, they most assuredly hate my money, it seems.

I remember back in 2013 there were some tweets about a port being in the works but I don't think anything new popped up about it.

>>265290286
God damn it, it's depressing how accurate that sounds.
>>
>>265290323
Just fucking haul ass passed the dragon in to the fort.
>>
>>265290323
>Also, what's the deal with the whole pawn thing, does mine automatically show up in the rift for people of the same level or do I need to send him away to do that stuff? Also I seem to be able to get companions for like 0 RC.

You need to rest at an inn for your pawn to get updated, but yes he'll randomly show up in other people's rift of the same level as your pawn when you last updated him.

It only cost RC for higher lvl pawns.
>>
>>265289841
Sounds good. So level more on warrior side?

Is there a katana in a game? I-I want to play a katana-wielding battlemage
>>
>>265290765
>katana

>>265290864

It makes sense in my setting

Just bought it today, most fun I've had in vidya in a while.
I made my pawn a muscular African queen and fapped to ebony porn for 30 minutes after turning off the game.
>>
>>265290709
Alright cool, I guess that explains how I got some rift points.

>>265290571
I love games that do that, and I feel like every open world-ish game should be required to toss really tough enemies at you.

Guess I'll keep that in mind next time I try that.
>>
>>265291018

Post your pawn

>>265291536
>Alright cool, I guess that explains how I got some rift points.
You can also get some as drops, very rare in the base game, much more frequently in BBI.
>>
>>265288536
>touchy
>upset about anonymous people on the internet being mean

>>265290098
Yes obviously.
Skyrim is the best game of last gen.
>>
>>265290323
>Also, can you get to the fort and defend it from goblins while avoiding that dragon?

Yes. There's actually a shortcut just south of Gran Soren that'll take you just outside that rest camp past the dragon. But it's some mines of Moria bullshit where you need to take out three ogres (or just one or two if you don't want to permanently clear out the place of enemies).
>>
>>265291882
I agree.
>>
>>265292161
Yeah I got through that, but I left all the ogres alive because I didn't think I was even doing damage to them. I'm unsure why I actually tried fighting the dragon, I guess I just wanted to take him down, and I assumed he was part of the fort fight due to all the goblins that are around him.
