Dragon's Dogma Hype Thread
POST SOME SCREENSHOTS OF COOL SHIT
Not with Gaats and Griffith armor anon
Lanterns are for pussies
Well, you would have to be pretty stupid if you we're to get "over-hyped" of DD in the first place, the way i see it there are two groups of people who have pre-ordered Dragon's Dogma:
The people who have not played it before and the people who have.
If a person belongs to the first group, he should look the game up, and watch a couple of videos (of any game overall) and get a good picture of the game before buying it, and even then keeping a cool head while doing it. No point in ruining (even an ok game) cause you think in your deluded mind that it's gonna be the gods gift to humanity. A guy like that deserves to have shit shovel in his mouth.
And if the person belongs to the second group (like i do) they pretty much already now what they are getting. One should remember that Capcom isn't doing a multi-platform release, so it's somewhat unlikely that there are any game breaking bugs present on launch, similar to the recent Batman release shitfest. They have had time to program and test the pc version enough, and i doubt it is in their best interests to make a shitty port.
But... i have taken preparations for even that unlikely event that the game is "too bugged". I'm just gonna wait till a couple of weeks/months and try again. It's not like my life depends on getting this game up and running at the next week, though that would be extremely nice since this is the first time i have actually bothered to "pre-order" anything on steam, and to a small extent this will have an effect on me pre-ordering games from steam in the future.
...oh, and because i actually personally enjoyed the console version.
Let's just all enjoy this Vidya, if you don't like it you can go to any other thread. I never got too far on consoles and I for one am excited to play an updated version of it, it was one of my favorite games on console and always will be.
Protip: there will be a mod to put the berserk armor back in within a week, just like with every PC port that has licensing issues that removes DLC
As for the Into Free song, depending on how the BGM files are setup, it'll also be possible to mod it back in
I'm sure there gonna be way more lolis and generic attractive petite females than Amazons anyways.
Just do what you feel like. That's usually good advice for Dragon's Dogma. Don't overthink things.
The way you make your character effects how you play, short characters have small hitboxes, smaller and lighter weights have more stamina, heavier weights weigh the monsters down more, are harder to knock down and limb length plays into all of this it's pretty fucking awesome for you newcomers to the game.
Well you can't make a pawn with a hybrid vocation if that's what you mean, but yeah, a good looking elf is always a good looking elf. Take note that i'm not talking about the exact of opposite of a good looking elf which is a bad looking elf. No ones gonna wan't to hire that.
I forgot you can't make hybrid pawns. I'm not really sure about elves because there are those purist/muh spees muhreens/xeno haters who would rather cut their right ball off before hiring an elf.
What pawn compliments an Assassin? Planning to go full aggro with 1-10 fighter then 10-200 assassin.
I was thinking Ranger/Strider? Will I be able to train them well? will they pick on to assassin stuff?
Are there any missables in this game or choices I should make that don't fuck up my save?
>omg you did this instead of that now you can't do this quest later on
Fucking hate RPGs that do this shit.
Would you wan't your pawn to be abused by them in the first place?
..but i ques it's nicer to have a pawn that's hired more often. Gives you a nice feeling to know, that people liked the pawn enough to hire it.
It feels like a fighter might always be useful to have around. But I'm planning on playing Assassin so he won't exactly learn a lot from me and I hear that's when they really start to shine.
But a Ranger might. Especially since I'm planning on maybe switching to Ranger myself later. But that also means sharing all my equipment with the pawn.
Will do probably my first playthrough until post game as a fighter, level up the other vocations and finally settling on assassin. My pawn will starts as fighter, level other vocations but end up as fighter again at the end.
Both female to get the feminist bandit quest and avoid ogre enrages at BBI. My character will probably just be generic waifu but I'm gonna make damn sure my pawn is an Anita clone.
Playing on hard from the get go is a must, doing The Hero on my first go, clearing the Everfall before I hit BBI for some alright items and then I'll probably try for as long as I bother to get the best shit once I beat Daimon.
I have a friend that will play it for the first time and we will use each others pawns so I will tell him to make a mage for healing at first but change to sorcerer after a while. Will also make him play on hard.
>POST SOME SCREENSHOTS OF COOL SHIT
>STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS THING THAT I DON'T APPROVE OF
Go to a thread you like, senpai.
Starting strider, then sorc for the rank 9 augments, then MA. MA will be easy mode for BBI, so I can gather monster drops and cursed gear fairly easily, to hand out to /ddg/ players that will need it.
As soon as I beat the hydra, I'm going into BBI to get the moonbeam gem to get the ring of perseverance, and maybe some wakestones, some level 1 gears maybe for a ring, if I'm lucky.
Nope, if you really enjoyed rpgs you would take the risk of fucking up in order to replay the game with a different experience. You just want your handheld and want to be able to make the most OP character while also 100% the game on your first run. I mean that's fine, but it takes away from the experience and shows how dependent you are on "instant gratification". You're probably underage
>tfw been playing it since yesterday
Yeah I prefer them too, it's a nice balance.
I'm against hyping anything, it only sets up high expectations from idiots who will quit the game by the time they fight their first goblin pack.
Besides, this is a game that has been out on consoles for 2 years already, people know what the game play is like. The only benefit from the PC port is better framerate.
>Is it focused on combat and not dialogue/storytelling?
It is. The story is almost non-existent for the most part.
Though the game plays almost nothing like either Skyrim or Dark Souls.
The game is oddly familiar but also oddly unique.
Daily reminder to purchase the game! Yes, buy the game a third time you faggots!
I really can't play Dragons Dogma without a dodge roll. It's not a particularly useful Dagger-Skill but I just can't play a third person action game without one. Dark Souls has ruined me.
Hopefully someone mods it so it's just a generic ability.
>have a shittop
>really enjoyed ps3 version
>wanna get this but know my laptop probably wont run it
B-back to league and WoW i guess
Looking to go Mystic Knight first playthrough, what things should look out for? I heard you can fuck up an MK real easy if you don't do things right but the concept of the class sounds too cool.
You could have just asked for the webm
Thanks, that's good news. Picked up Dark Arisen for 360 for free because Game stop had a buy 2 get 1 free thing, but I chose to just wait for the PC release.
Well, some enemies are more easily dispatched with daggers. The one that comes to mind are dire wyverns, where their heart is located on their back between their wings. Bring them down with a ninefold bolt to the face, then jump on their back and shank the heart.
Not really. Most of your success lies in the gear and personal skill.
The only really bad way to level is to play like a fuckload of levels as an Assassin then start playing Sorcerer. And even that won't really matter all that much.
MY FUCKING STEAM CONTROLLER FUCKING BROKE AFTER I ONLY USED IT FOR LIKE 3 FUCKING WEEKS GABE YOU FAT FcKING ASSHOLE GET OVER HERE AND FIX MY FUCKING STEAM CONTROLLER NO I DIDNT GET GAMESTOPS STUPID WARRENTY I DIDNT EVEN DO ANYTHING TO IT I JUST LEFT IT ON MY DESK AFTER I WAS DONE WITH SOME DARK SOULS 2 THEN I COME BACK TODAY AND IT WONT FCKING TURN ON I JUST WANTED TO PLAY A FUCKING MAGIC ARCHER IN DRAGONS DOGMA I WAS SO FKCING CLOSE I DONT WANT TO DO IT WITH MY FUCKING DUALSHOCK 4 I WANTED TO USE THE TRACKPAD TO AIM AND SHIT
FUCK YOU GABE. I WANT MY 50 DOLLARS BACK YOU FAT FUCKING JEW FCUK FAGGOT
How's Magic Archer?
Doesn't matter a whole lot, its for the minmaxing crowd. Weapons are the dealbreaker.
For instance you can level as a pure physical damage build and get 400 more physical attack as a passive stat, but with a sword that has almost 2000 its all good anyway.
What you do want to minmax however is your pawn
Yes. You can play a few level as sorcerer if you want to boost your magic attacks, or play a few levels of Assassin to boost your melee attacks but you can easily just play MK from start to finish if you want to.
The game is fairly easy and there is no point in min-maxing.
MK has well balanced stat gains for offense and defense. They'll do a lot of damage, but won't hit like a truck and will soak up a lot of damage but won't shrug it off
actually MK has a trick to do the single most damaging move in the entire game and can one shot the final boss
God I hate these fucking cherry-picking webms. Anyone could portray Dragon's Dogma in the exact same way. Really wish people would stop fucking posting them because Dragon's Dogma doesn't need to be compared to other games to show it's a good game.
Makes your argument seem desperate for validation of more popular RPGs rather then standing on its own merits.
I really like single player RPGS , i go full comfy/autistic mode and get really into itso im guessing this game is right for me.
Whats a fun class to play? some advice for newbies from the people that played it on console?
You choose their attacks, perks and weapons/armor. They have 2 alignments which will determine their personality in and out of combat, for instance if they go for big or small foes, if they look for utility in the environment or to help you out rather than doing damage.
Beyond that is a very cool system where they actually learn from what you do, so if you want to have a tank fighter pawn you should play a fighter yourself and let the pawn see what you do and they will actually start mimicking your behavior.
>Beyond that is a very cool system where they actually learn from what you do, so if you want to have a tank fighter pawn you should play a fighter yourself and let the pawn see what you do and they will actually start mimicking your behavior.
Stop propagating this utter horseshit.
Eh I can see his point. DD is a good game well within its own right, taking deliberately bland examples of combat from Dark Souls and Skyrim to make DDs combat seem more impressive.
Also if you're new, would highly recommend Assassins. Huge diversity of weapons and dope abilities.
>The thought of a fragile little shota getting dominated by a buff amazon chick makes my pants feel funny...
HOW THE FUCK DO I GET THIS FIXED SO I CAN PLAY MY FCUKIN MAGIC ARCEHR AND HAVE A GOOD TIME!? FUCKIN THINGS SUCK MY DICK.
>Combat is the focus of DD
Don't listen to this pleb.
Haute couture is the focus of DD
Haven't played in awhile. I forgot some of the moves.
>cyclops has his own giant table and furniture at 1:42

I really want to go sorcerer or mage.
But I've been having a fit/muscle girl fetish lately, so I might go warrior just to make my ideal, strong, independent barbarian womyn who needs no man's approval when she wants the D and will rape you if you hesitate.
Will be playing warrior on hard. Probably will go 10 fighter, 10-100 warrior than 101-200 assassin. My pawn will probably level up in the same order, except 101-200 fighter or strider. Should be fun.
Sure thing bebbeh. MK is also one of the best classes, along with MA and assassin, for fashions dogma. You can get the sanctuary augment from MK, where your defense and magick defense increase by 50% when your health is critical (30%). I made a physical based MK, so I did a lot of time as a fighter and warrior. I wore the immortals armor set end game, and it regens health. By how I leveled, I just couldn't be killed, my defenses were awesome, and my health was high, and even if I got put into critical health, my defenses got even higher, and my armor would heal me out of it anyway.
Mage is worth getting the ranks in when you need to kill zombies or go into the catacombs since your healing spells damage the undead. I mean if you're a completionist you'll do it anyway, may as well choose a time of optimum effectiveness. Even without that you still have Comestion and Frigor spam which never really gets old cos they're rad spells, also Grapnel is a fun spell and only Mages get it.
Mage is still worth it as an Arisen for the augments and if you're a MK you'll definitely want some of them. But as I say if you're going to be a Mage at any point, do it when you need to kill skellies and zombies.
You have access to all vocations from level 10
You might benefit by going in the same direction (mage -> sorc) since they have some similar traits, but getting traits from other vocations might be handy, depending on your playstyle
>tfw pre-ordered steam version but playing pirated version because I can't wait 6 days
Not ridiculously hard, but certainly harder.
That and the Pawn system is what really makes the game unique and to not have it would be pretty boring.
Oh and you would probably have to cheat eventually if you want to play the DLC because no RC.
is leveling up in this game like
>you're mage so here's some int every level
>mage warrior gets little bit of str and int
>warrior gets str
and so on and stuff like that?
Lol thanks. The first cyclope will be problematic. I'm thinking about going straight to BBI getting the discipline ring and leveling there to 10 and switching to warrior. Should i do it? Or play the game normally and go to the BBI after everfall?
Yes. But skills and classes can be switched whenever you feel like.
But you don't really have to care much about it unless you are power leveling since items usually makes up for your lack in skills.
Just don't spend TOO much time playing something like Warrior or Assassin if you want play a Sorc and you will do fine.
It's not ridiculously hard at all, rift crystals which are a currency mostly used to get post game gear, are much easier to get if you have a pawn that gets hired by other players.
But you can still get enough RC in game, there are even augments that increases RC drop rate, so go ahead and pirate if you want to.
The base classes get a mix of health and their core stat, and the advanced ones like sorcerer get more int over health, and hybrids get a lower amount in health and their 2 base stats.
This leads stuff where if you wanted to minmax you could do shit like 10 levels of mage and then 190 levels of sorcerer, but who the fuck does that.
You'll miss out on some good pawns that people make since you are stick with your generic pawns, meaning you will miss out on some powerful good pawns that you can get from other players and sharing your own pawns.
Pawns really make up the gist of the game and its what make Dragon's Dogma even better.
Also, you'll start to get annoyed at how samey/repetitive your townfolks look, since random pawns make up the world of DD.
But besides that, if you don't give a fuck, you won't notice it.
Nope, even on medium. Skyrim's level scaling tend to fuck with me a lot and I will often face an enemy with ridiculous health and attack power where the will take out 80% of my health in one attack.
>nobody posts links
;-; I got it pre-ordered, but I want to play too!
Post yfw you'll see all the new players entering BBI for the first time
Easiest way to get RC in BBI is to godsbane in front of Daimon's chests until you get all poly(?) rift crystals. That's the most reliable place.
But, this is predicated upon the fact that you have BBI level 3 weapons so that you can reliably kill Daimon 2.0 and break through his defenses, which you'll need to grind for and purify at 20k/25k RC a pop for the level 3's.
LONG AGO IN ANCIENT TIMES
>they follow the purple marker right after the first cyclopes fight at level 7
I hate waiting for a game you really want to play. The week feels like a month. I have it pre-ordered but I'm tempted to pirate just to get just a little crumb taste.
Mate this is literally the exact programming of pawns, inclinations actually came afterwards.
Unless you think "monkey see monkey do" AI is some kind of arcane technique only known by esteemed programming experts.
I've had varied results. Some games didn't work with Applocale for me, prompting me to actually change my system's locale and restart. After that, some of my older western games would crash on startup, so I'd have to switch back to play those. Restarting when I want to play a game on a whim is a pain, so I prefer to stick to Japplocale so long as it works.
The main thing is goddamn Tenfold Flurry, your pawn needs a goddamn scholarship before it does that.
On the plus side teaching your fighter pawn to perfect parry turns it into an immortal god.
So how do you get people to hire your pawn? Just no life the shit out of the game and make it super strong or you need to make it some sexy amazon?
Also do you guys think it will play ok with kb+mouse or should I use my ps3 controller?
Either way pre-ordering on monday, never got around to play it on my ps triple but now I'm weirdly excited
>BBI level 3 weapons
These are probably the easiest to get though, you don't need to purify that many to get the weapons you want.
Forgetting the from another sky quests, there are quite a few of enemies that drop poly and bi crystals in BBI, and there's also that augment that increases RC drop rate, you really don't need to farm Daimon for that.
That only really comes into play when you want the best BBI armor.
So who's gonna play their game on a flight controller?
Got everything set up for Dragons Dogma
There are few places where you can farm RC. The fallen city, before daimon is a good place, as i remember you can get there 20k-30k RC. The place when you first encounter living armor, you can get there 10k RC. And probably there are few more places where you can get good amount of rc.
>there was a Senator Armstrong playthrough on youtube
>guy reuploaded it to another channel
>channel is gone
It was priceless
He even setup his responses during the fight and stuff
Anyone know what I'm talking about or maybe have a link?
I know the feeling, ese. I put in a vacation day from work for Friday. Going to sleep in, wake up, make some soup, and let it simmer on the stove for 5 or 6 hours, have a bowl, then play dogma when it goes live. When it gets later, have a few alcoholic beverages, then call it a night.
ONE ENTIRE WEEK TILL RELEASE
How are you guys spending it? I think I'm gonna clean my room and rearrange it.
Speaking off. What pawns do well not teaching them stuff apart from the basic inclinations?
I don't really want to play the same class as my pawn. But I still want people to go o"man, that was a pretty nice pawn".
>comparatively to chest-stabbing save-scumming daimon chests
>get something like 50 times more RC a go
Wowee gee it turns out that maybe you should play online then, thus lending to an active and vibrant online community which only the benefit of rewards can truly provide.
It's almost like this is intentional or something.
>Good inclinations for their vocation
Also, there are a few steam groups that are going around for trading hires, and /ddg/ will be back in the swing when the game goes live, so you can ask for rents there.
On my old account, before my 360 died, I think I had something like 24 or 25 million RC on my main arisen. I'd go ranger, summon death, and kill him with tenfold flurry and blast arrows 10 or 15 times, and send /ddg/ pawns back with max RC, and people gave return hires.
Didn't say I was gonna even do what I proposed, you know.
The point is, farming perfect rift crystals out of daimon chests is dumb.
Sadly I don't think Capcom would do something like that though, we just have to suffer for another week
And yeah I know offline pawns are shitty I was stuck playing the first half of the PS3 version with no internet
>spoiling your experience by pirating
I want everything to be new and unknown literally the only thing i know about this game is that
>dragon steals your heart
>pawn system seems dope as hell
>how the different classes give different stats when leveling up so you can min-max if you wanna
>can make really good shota/loli
>magic looks really cool
I will be a good boy and wait the week
Any way to trick steam or the game into thinking I can play it?
I want it now
>minmaxing faggots will continue to make new players believe stats matter as much as they believe they do
The game LIVES from experimenting different classes and builds. As long as you dont play sorcerer for 100 level and then try to play warrior you are safe. It's an offline game, you don't have a playerbase to compete with.
Be quiet guys, Aniki is trying to sleep until the steam version is out
I honestly have a ps3 and never even paid attention to the game until it got announced for pc. At which point buying it for ps3 seemed pointless especially since console users in my country only play fifa and cod and it would have been pretty hard to find it
>"Take up arms, newly arisen. For my kind do not heed those who can't wrestle"
Yep, but it's not too amazing, which was why that run was so impressive and great
The Bloody Knuckle increases the damage by quite a bit, and you can stack them
Then stack four Conqueror's Periapt and then it becomes semi-efficient
What a fucking sperg post. He never even implied most of what you accused him of in that post, he just said that he doesn't like it when games arbitrarily lock you out of content.
It's fine, or even great, when a game locks you out of large portions because of the class/alignment/factions/choices etc(like the size of your character in this game), but it's just bad design when you're faced with a choice of left door/right door with no indication of what's in them and with one being an instant cutscene + checkpoint with no going back, like so many modern games do. It's perfectly reasonable to want to be casually warned about these things, like knowing that you shouldn't waste SLs on Resistance in DaS isn't minmaxing, it's just avoiding a rushed developer's mistake in design
Reminder to everyone: If you want to get your pawn hired, all anyone gives a fuck about is what skills they have and how cool they look, and if they're a reference to something the player likes (anime or another game or whatever).
So yeah I expect to see plenty of little girls day one because ya'll a bunch of fucking pedos.
None of them. I mean, you can play through the entirety of the game just fine without giving a shit about your pawn, but don't expect anyone to go "oh man that was a pretty nice pawn" like you said — wait, no. Actually, since everyone's pretty much a new player this time around, I don't think anyone's going to know any better. Knock yourself out, m8. You'll still have a shitty pawn in the end though.
Nigga, fighters are murderous dickheads BUILT to avoid and return damage. They're fucking excellent at dodging, countering, and abusing i-frames, and they can negate stamina loss while reflecting damage at the same time if they manage to time their blocks well.
Worth mentioning that unarmed scales off Strength so you basically need to be an Assassin class, though thats fine since you need the dodge roll and that vocation has it.
You can also use equipment that boosts strength to increase damage further.
With enough minmaxing it becomes decent enough that at the very least your pawns can carry you.
>Played PS3 version and fps shat itself everytime still love DD
>decided to upgrade my computer with saved autsimbux

HOW THE FUCK DID THIS HAPPEN I WANT CRISP DRAGONS DOGMA REEEEEE
no you can use your own pawn and generic pawns that are already in-game. you just can't hire other players pawns which will almost always be categorically better than the generic ones. and I guess the player-made pawns get added to your world as random npcs as well
cats instinctually want to drink running water (stagnant water usually equals illness), which is why a lot of cats prefer to drink from fountains or running faucets than bowls, or like this one, want to slap the water to make it move
Oh yeah, on my strider rusted daggers and short bow, makes climbing monsters easy peasy. And when you get to where you want to stab, stop moving for a moment and don't attack, and you can go to the menu and switch to your good daggers for damage dealing.
I can't wait for Cheat Engine so I don't have to deal with this shit anymore. I just want to go around beamspamming without dealing with the worst fucking stat growth in the whole game.
>So who's gonna play their game on a flight controller?
lame troll. anybody who actually uses such a setup calls it only by its proper collective term, HOTAS (for Hands On Throttle And Stick)
Tons of things to miss in terms of quests, and depending on when you do them quests can play out a bit differently. That's one of the game's greatest strengths.
It's also meant to be replayed, and New Game+ is essentially a part of the story.
Skyrim was an okay game while Oblivion was absolute fucking dogshit though

>Fem loli healer Pawn
>Despite the pawns' role of being the personal bodyguard of the Arisen, our Arisen is very over-protective of his pawn that the moment danger presents itself he grabs his pawn and storms out of danger

Post your song that matches to a vocation
And is it just me, or does every Manowar album cover seem like something a guy in the 80's would have painted on the side of their van?
As long as you have also learned Forward Tumble (or was it Roll?), you can. And you can double jump with the appropriate core skill, too. Boot up your game and see for yourself.
It doesn't. All of these things are tied to weapon skills, for one.
All classes are viable and have their own strengths, it depends on how you want to play
Recommendations for the new would be Magick Archers or Sorc since you can get pawns to tank up front whilst you deal damage from afar. I would stay away from Warrior due to the lack of skills until you get more experience from playing.
Well, in the late game in BBI, enemies start having banana sandwich defenses and anywhere from 9 - 11 health bars. But, almost every enemy is weak to some form of elemental damage (fire in Gransys, ice/holy in BBI).
Took the liberty of fixing it for you.
Mages are a crutch. Maybe in the early game, but once you get to Gran Soren, you'll be fine with items. The merchant lady next to Caxton sells giant mushrooms and potent greenwarish, which should be all you need for the base game. When you hit BBI, harspud sauce and other curatives drop like crazy from enemies and broken barrels/crates.
If you need the party wide healing, buy empty vials from the healing vendor in GS, and go fill them up at the healing spring. Spring water is a party wide curative, so feel free to toss 20 on to each pawn, and they'll heal everybody up.
But, if you make a sorc, be sure to include high voidspell on them, since it cures petrification. I won't hire a sorc unless they have the spell.
>Go into the Rotundra with the Fiend-Luring Incense
Noped right the fuck back out.
>tfw I never hired a single female pawn in the console version
>complains that nobody posts links
>won't post link
>Mages are a crutch
No, lugging around a shit ton of panacea is
Mages not only heal but enchant weapons, blind/silence enemies, cure any stat debilitation and can exploit elemental weaknesses
just buy an assload of hardspur sauces
camellia sells them after you beat grigori i think, and they are infinite
>A dedicated healer is still a must
not true, you can easily roll without a mage
I literally only use Mage pawns with Legion's Might, it makes fights way less annoying when you're getting healed by three people at once and when they die you don't even need to revive them.
In terms of efficiency they're replacable but as a quality of life pawn there's truly nothing better.
You'd just have to rely on items more, which can be annoying since you'll be weighed down.
It's not so much that you can't, having a mage is simply easier. Does anyone know if the PC version has hotkeys, so you don't have to pause to open your inventory to chug potions?
On your first playthrough? Not really, no. You need a Mage with the heal spell. The recovery from Holy Affinity is pretty minimal.
By all means use curatives to restore health instead, but you're going to be going into the menus *a hell of a lot*.
>Playing MK with the balla immortals armor
>Implying I need healing
Guys. I have some questions.
I just started.
I keep losing life maximum life on my adventures, why? Can I get rid of this other than taking a rest?
Is the MK any good? Warrior seems so powerful right now. Explosion and everything is on the ground.
Also, is it true that a warrior can't really handle a mage as follower because the mage is going to attack like the warrior as result?`
Perfect blocks are something you'll need to work on, as they'll be extremely helpful later. You just need to get some levels into your vocation for the skills to unlock. Abyssal Anguish turns each swing of your weapon into 4 or 5 hits, and will decimate most enemies in quick order.
Also, try out staff and shield. Snipe enemies with high ingle, then rush towards them tofinish them off with a mace. Casting brontide and wading into the fray to whip shit is fun as fuck.
>I keep losing life maximum life on my adventures, why? Can I get rid of this other than taking a rest?
Use healing items. The white bar is how much a mage can heal you.
>Is the MK any good?
>Also, is it true that a warrior can't really handle a mage as follower because the mage is going to attack like the warrior as result?`
No. You just have to give them the right inclinations.
warrior is the most gimped class in the game
I think Mage (not sorcerer) is the only class that might do less dps than it.
That being said you can literally solo (no pawns) the entire game as Warrior but it's still the worst class.
Warrior is the 2 handed sword/hammer class. You'll get huge health and strength gains. Also give fighter a try, a bit more defensive stats and abilities, but a lot of the augments that you get can be useful for warrior (especially sinew, rank 5 or 6 fighter, increases carry weight, a must have for the heavy armor and weapons so you don't get over encumbered).
You might also want to try mystic knight, a caster hybrid. You get enchanted shields, access to mage spells, and can use maces and magick to enhance your melee abilities. I'd play it for a while anyway for the sanctuary augment, when your health gets to critical (30%), your defense and magick defense increases by 50%.
Yeah, but you have to hit a weakspot or else you'll do hardly any damage.
It's really satisfying to execute big monsters like that, but it doesn't really make up for the rest of the warrior's faults in my opinion. Still, people should just play what they find fun, not necessarily what's stronger.
Warrior isn't about doing tons of DPS, its more about tanking huge groups of enemies, staggering them and knocking them down, and controlling the pace of battle/crowd control with your fuck huge weapon. You keep the enemies off balance while your pawns do single target damage with range or cast huge fuck you spells with sorcerer.
Some enemies, like griffins, can be grounded if you and your pawns weigh enough. You can also launch them to grab on to the griffin, and knock it to the ground with a strong enough attack. From there, attack the wings to ground it permanently so it can't fly away.
You can also get pawns to weak points on larger enemies faster, like cyclops eyes, chimeras backs, etc.
Allows less acrobatic classes to get on to monsters or even creatures in the air, you can use it to launch pawns or give it your pawn and they're sometimes do it for you.
Not really worth a slot for a Warrior but it's a decent utility skill for a fighter pawn.
No, but xp will vary depending on level of the pawns. Pawns that are of a higher level than you will lower your xp, up to a max of level 25 higher levels than you. Pawns that are of a lower level than you will increase the xp you get, again to a max of 25 levels lower than you.
it's also very rare you get a chance to land a fully charged arc
taking into account the amount of times you'll get interrupted/have to cancel it the move still takes forever to charge up
Sorcerers blast the fuck out of everything with magic
Ranger obliterates anything and everything with Blast Arrows + Tenfold
Mystic Knight cannons everything to death
Mystic Archer lights himself on fire and then stabs the fuck out of things
Strider absolutely DELETES health bars with Brain Splitter and can wipe out groups of enemies with Hailstorm Volley (which uses 24 blast arrows per attack)
Assassin jumps on big enemies and just rapes them
All warrior has going for it is landing .webm worthy Arcs, everything else about it subpar compared to other classes
Fighter does all that better

bbi super fun times
If the game with proper crack is released, you'll find it on the usual sites like PB and KAT and it doesn't need to be posted here or do you think it's only available to a sekrit club.
SO DON'T BE FUCKING MONGOS.
I'll try and get over how awful the fact that my shield stays on my back is and play MK
I assume it's cool for my pawn to stay mage to keep heals or should she go Archwizard or whatever the fuck
>Mystic Knight cannons everything to death
Gettin' real sick of this meme
MK has a core skill called REFLECT
USE IT YOU STUPID FUCKING NIGGER

>LITERALLY ONE SHOTING DAIMON
>holy riposte perfect block
>shits out great cannon bullets so fast they despawn to shoot more and hit nothing
Best barometer for BBI would be to beat Grigori, then go to the
Everfallin post game. Clear all of the rooms once, you'll get some upgraded armor, and there are 2 pawn vendors that sell BBI level 1 tier weapons. You'll also stockpile wakestones. Don't give the wakestones to the pawn, this locks you into the end of the game and NG+
If you can do this, it's a pretty good indicator that you can handle BBI. The biggest issue will be damaging the big enemies, since the increase to their defenses is huge between the mainland and the island. Apart from that, I usually enter BBI somewhere between 50 and 60.
Probably not unless you're addicted to loot grinding. You'll probably play everything the game has to offer in ~60-80 hours. Because you can class change freely and level-up stats based on your class ultimately mean very little, there's also little reason to make different characters. Also, the original post-game is almost entirely pointless with the introduction of BBI unless they go out of their way to change it for the re-release, and after BBI (twice) the only thing left is to grind for the perfect gear you don't need because you already killed what you needed to in order to get it.
It's still a very long game and well worth the money in my opinion, but don't expect Monster Hunter amounts of hours in it.
> the way i see it there are two groups of people who have pre-ordered Dragon's Dogma:
The people who have not played it before and the people who have.
