So I played gothic, gothic 2, and now Im playing gothic 2 night of the raven, my question is..... WTF IS WITH THIS GAME FFS ITS SO FUCKING HARD.
Did you play this? Your thoughts?
Yeah, it's quite difficult.
But that just means you can play more of it because you have to kill everything that moves!
Also, as >>323304865 says, once you make some progress it will get better (remember in G1 and G2 you couldn't really do all that much in the beginning either).
Depends on your play style, 2h do more damage but are slower, 1h do less damage but are quicker, which also allows you to dodge more efficiently. Personally, i'm a fan of 2h weapons
What a coincidence. Bought the series recently and I finished G1 which was surprisingly good. Got around 7 hours into G2 and I did the mistake of joining the Militia before doing quests for all of the guys.
Some tips for you, before you join any factions, explore around and do their quests. Go to Lares at the harbor and have him take you to the mercenaries to get their quests done.
Also I wonder if we'd be able to get a Gothic thread going. I've literally seen 0 in ages (not that they're common in the first place).
2h also have longer range which is rather useful in this game
ever since I was small and played the game I always wondered why were there no shields, it's such a shame, it would make 1h weapons more viable choice, as it is, I always went with 2h, even when I wanted to try 1h...
It's brutal at the beginning. While you are getting banged in the ass, you add the people to your list and then bring vengeance on them after you get better armor and weapons.
Well, first off, it helps to speak german, and then the game gets a lot easier.
Thats about it.
The game is not hard at all. The longest time the game took when to learn how to mine for gold optimally.
gothic 1 was hard since everything killed till you got some decent weapons learned fighting
gothic 2 was made much easier by devs since difficulty in one seemed to hard for many
huge backlash came from the community
gothic 2 addon came and made everything good again
They're not really difficult. After a certain level it's a cakewalk, especially the first game. The only thing you could call difficul, which, in my opinion, rather artificial difficulty, is up dargons recieved in NotR.
Take every little bit of experience with you. Do the basic walking quests in the city, as well as the quests for the different organisations before you decide to join one. Kill all the small enemies you can take around the city, bugs, hungry wolves, hell even those little cockroaches.
No fucking shit, but it was the only way to kill them. And even then the last boss is very random, he could literally fly the whole battle regenerating all damage you've done, which is fucking stupid, and is the reason I called it artificial, and not a real difficulty.
>WTF IS WITH THIS GAME FFS ITS SO FUCKING HARD
much harder than gothic 2, and still a lot harder than gothic 1
get used to pressing your quick save and quick load hotkeys a lot. take every exp you can get, leave no quest undone and no monster unkilled. you'll need everything you can get, or your shit will be fucked up really bad.
Despite Gothic being hated on /v/ and the fact that the game itself aged poorly, this have been always my favorite expansion.
I just fucking love the swamp setting with Aztec buildings, the cozy valley, pirate beach and savage desert.
Fuck. Expansion done right.
I'm british, played this a lot during april-june.
Never played a gothic game before and I really enjoyed it, I was rubbish but I was amazed at how many options there were. Different ways to get into koronis and the depth of the game was great.
Think I'm on act 2, completed the DLC but finding it hard to get back into..
Because they "rebalanced" the game by making every weapon require twice the cost in stat requirements, to please the minmaxers. It tells a lot about Pirhana Bytes's competence onward on Gothic 2.
Let's tell the truth, all Gothic threads are a bunch of circlejerking Yuropoors trying to show off this piss poor seires that went to the shitter from the second game onwards. They deserve all the ridicule they can get.
too bad, because if you never played G1, the first trip to the colony doesn't impact you so much. I remember a profound sense of terror the first time I entered it because I played the shit out of G1 and knew the valley quite well and then in G2 it's overrun with orcs and even more full of rape and death
Use scrolls more, they all cost 5 Mana now, no matter how strong the spell. It's piss easy when you use Rain of Fire on every bigger group.
Other than than, save a lot, let the NPC nearby help you with mobs if you can't handle them alone and don't be afraid to run back to the nearest town/farm if chased by something.
