Does this game not autosave? I just got killed out of the blue by some bandits and lost the last half an hour of the game.
The map seems convoluted too, I took some side quests from a notice board but the map is unable to show me where the objectives are.
I'm enjoying the combat a lot, but stupid details like that make it really annoying and inaproachable.
It tells you where the notice board quest objectives are in the quest. It's in an area. Look around and explore. Seeing as how most of the quests are just killing shit at the start.
Is this game broken, or is saving changes in options mapped to some random key that isn't enter?
I've tried every key on the fucking board, but I still can't modify a single thing in the options menu.
It only auto saves when entering and leaving town, finishing quests or resting at the inn. Otherwise, you have to manually save, but only if you are safe, you can't during combat.
doest thou not comprehend the SAVE / QUIT option in the Pause menu. It does actually autosave though, at some points, like when entering a dungeon/city or after teleportation and such.
the game tells you right out the gate it autosaves and that you can manually save as well. you fucking retard.
BACKSPACE TO CONFIRM
CAN'T USE THE MOUSEWHEEL
HAVE TO HIT ESCAPE THEN MAP INSTEAD OF KEYBINDING MAP
INVENTORY IS FUCKING AWFUL, DISPLAYS 5 ITEMS IN A TINY FUCKING WINDOW
what the FUCK are the japs smoking?
outside the decent fps, this is NOT good pc port.
Yes the only thing that makes the game stand out in its genre is the combat, I hope they make the overworld more interesting in the sequel
>I don't know how to save manually
>I guess i better don't play vidya
I just picked up a mission to escort some old bum to the shadow fort. It seems like it's quite far away so it's going to take some time. Is there anything I should know before heading out?
I played a little of the PS3 version. Does the PC version play better with KB+M or should I just go controller again?
Also how's the difficulty? Is it better to just go to the hardest difficulty or does it just make enemies damage sponges?
I thinkt he japs use joypads to type.
Those 6 button genesis pads.
In nipspeak the written language is just random little pictures so they don't need keys, they make it up as they go along. Microsoft office doesn't sell well over there as they can use mspaint to make any documents they want.
>Reynald: Hey man could you escort me
>Sure thing, where to?
>2 hours later
Just fuck my shit up
I should have stayed at the capital
Only thing I didn't like so far is that I failed few quest for leaving the area, and you can even return to those areas.
I think you can cancel it (I've never tried to cancel a quest in my 100 hours on PS3) but I know for sure they will disappear in a few days if you don't do them so I guess your only option is too git gud by picking them up against their will and transporting their dumbass past the hard part.
So how are the keyboard controls? I've never played it before and I'm okay with either, just wondering which is the better choice.
Keep doing the main questline until you reach Gran Soren, it's just a couple of missions. Get better equipment and carefully try to explore the land. If the enemies are too difficult, haul your ass back, that means this is the way you shouldn't go.
Can I be Conan.
This is serious.
Those people you were getting the flowers for died anon.Dragon Dogma isn't a stereotypical RPG. Food will age and quests will be abandon if you pretty much choose to ignore them. The game move on to the next stage every time you do a main story quest. So if you want to do all of the side stuff then do that first before doing the next main story quest.
As for people complaining about the lack of quest markers. Try to talk to people. The item you need for the guy in the church is located
on the roof of one of the buildings.
Can someone explain to me the fucking random regular mobs that are fucking invincible?
Went up a path where some bandits tried to Indiana Jones me and when i got up there to fight them there was one fucking bandit that refused to take any damage what so ever. All the other bandits were pretty easy to kill just not this one.
There was nothing special about him he just took no damage and killed me in 2 hits.
I figured i would skip him and come back to save my fisherman waifu alter but after i did the escort quest it said i could no longer complete the quest.
What sort of shit is this?
>Finish making pawn
>Realize the voice is too high
What can I do about this?
How do I know if the DLC is really installed? It's just a checkbox, it doesn't download anything extra when I check it (not even the first time) and the title screen says Dark Arisen whether I have it enabled or not.
Is the quest Lost and Found? It is well known to be a bitch. Try traveling during the night, I heard the bandits get replaced by wolves and despite warnings of such is one of the few cases where it actually end up making it easier.
>Escorting the brown cumslut
>Suddenly she just dissappears

>fuck ton of bandits spawn outside Gran Soren
>"oh no problem, let me just babysit this bitch and we'll be good"
>almost at the end of the fuckers
>a fucking griffin swoops down and oneshots her
after the tutorial i thought this game would be way too easy, but i'm getting my shit pushed in right past the first fort thing, so that's pretty cool
also i killed the guy that tells you quinoa went missing cause i got tired of hearing his shit everytime i died, was he important?
>Again 10 levels into fighter and the rest into assassin, netting some fighter and warrior augs for strength along the way is important too.
I read that in a different thread, those augs, can I buy them just by switching to that class once or what?
You need to use the Inn at least once for your pawn to actually get uploaded and use the Inn every time you wish to update it.
If you went through the game without using the Inn (which is very possible when items like Legion's Might exist) then it is very possible your pawn isn't even in the system yet.
>come across a chimera

>mfw I was almost at the destination
THANKS FOR NOTHING FUCKHEAD
I hope someone makes somekind of combat log addon for this. I really want to see how much damage im doing.
I kind of wanna play this again, but then I remembered how much of a pain in the ass it is to properly min-max a character (spending time in shit vocations for stats and perks).
That's the rub. If you don't want to level up while leveling the vocation, you'll need to pay attention to your experience values while out grinding, and once you get close, switch back to the vocation you want to level up in.
However, it's not that big of a deal if you get a few levels in any of the classes. Augments and gear matter more than levels anyway.
1. Don't min-max. BBI equipment make the idea of min-maxing a waste of time as they give a shit ton of stats that make your base stats seem like shit anyway.
2. Don't min-max, you will end up hating the game over it. Just switch because you feel like it.
3. To answer your question though kill weak shit for leveling vocation. Rabbits, wolves, goblins as the game doesn't really care what you kill when leveling them up.
I had one where I was taking her to some cave. A red drake flew in as I was fighting some trolls I think, so I had to run past the fucker to the point. Is the game just supposed to be rough, or do they expect you to do this kind of thing.
So when do sorc spells actually get better than merely spamming holy focused bolts?
>no stamina cost
>safe, can keep moving/running
magic knight's orb attack damage is magic and physical and is the optimum way to farm the zombie dragon, magic archer is for bbi, use blast arrows and those periapt things for the rest
you could just got assassin from 10-200 to maximize your blast arrow damage but the magic hybrid classes are way more fun
Is there a mod for playstation button prompts yet?
>korean MMO numbers
Shit's a staple of diablo-likes anon, korean MMOs just adopted them.
After a few vocation levels.
Trust me anon, it's worth the wait.
Also be ready to wait for casting spells, they take a while.
Why did you use the word fun when you are talking about min-maxing. You don't need to min-max whatsoever due to equipment unless you are that shit at the game. If you are that shit at the game then there is no helping you anyway, may as well enjoy as much of the game as you can without boring yourself.
I'm aware of such things, as are the other replying to you
What you don't seem to understand is just how big an impact Bitterbutt Isle weapons have on your stats
Literally all your minmaxing would do is make the first run easier
On top of that, anything above level80 on a min-maxed character will utterly shitstomp every bit of content in this game, include Matt Daimon 2.0
The game is only decent if you're not insanely strong
Anyone have any idea how to recreate this character?
I started as fighter upto level 15 where i changed to strider, but assassin looks good. Should i just change to assassin?
Also what the fuck's up with the outfits the innkeeper gives you. The Queen outfit armor values look quite OP.
>Go to hire some new pawns
But I tried Maelstrom and it takes forever to cast, then has a large as fuck recovery time as well.
I mean, the focused holy bolts seem far too convenient especially at this early in game.
I suppose the bigass spells become worth the awful casting times once you have very high magic?
I wish the camera mode was more controllable.
To some autists the mere act of min-maxing is a great deal of fun.
I've already beaten the game four or five times. I have every weapon and armor dragon forged to gold. This time around I'd like to just get the build right on my first time through so I don't have to make a second save.
Yeah, it autosabes, but only after certain events, like zoning. It caught me unawares twice or so but then I started remembering to save manually when out in the field. Makes sense when you think about it, it can't just save after every single move you make. That's actually important because I've hit an npc I didn't mean to on a few occassions, and it would have lowered my affinity if I hadn;t been able to reload.
Pawn life is suffering.
>pledge eternal allegiance to the Arisen.
>sacrifice my life over and over to defend them.
>my only reward is being dressed in skimpy outfits and thrown over cliff edges.
Bruh, we keep saying it;
You don't need to minmax
Play what you want
As for augments, you can literally AFK gring that in the post game if there's any you hadn't gotten naturally
>go save quina in lost woods
>do the everfall shit
>i forgot to report to her dad and i failed lost and found
Fuck my life, I can't get the rest of the questline can i? Quina is alive in the village and i talked to Selene too
To be fair the bandits on the way to the woods can be quite hard for a beginner. It's far better to reach Gran Soren first then do it.
The well lizards are easy peasy with ice enchantment
See if you can find a wizard who can either buff your weapons with ice and/or cast ice spells. Lizards are weak to ice
And focus on their tails, once cut off, they are easier to kill
There's no such thing, but at the very least I hope you accept you're the abnormal one with that mentality in this game
It literally doesn't matter when you're strong enough to shitstomp anything by level 100 anyways
You're not the only one who's played a lot of this game
>tfw I saw the Samus haircut and decided that I had to have a Samus pawn
I can't be the only one who did this, right?
My pawn doesn't know happiness.
In the 2nd or 3rd page there's someone who complained that it didn't work for them, follow the instructions. It's a bit complicated but nothing that a couple of minutes in google won't solve.
Don't know why that made me laugh.
How to Dragon Dogma early game.
Play on Hard mode. It will rain gold and you will get extra exp. Dealing with Goblins 1-hit kills will teach you to git gud and won't last long anyway. Believe you can leave hard mode at any time.
Optional but bonus points if pawn is the same class as you so it can learn from you and not other pawns.
If you are starting to have issues are your pawns the same level as you? If not replace them, Rook is a nice guy but ultimately shit as he is stuck at level 6. Go for player pawns as they are smarter.
Buy equipment for you and if you are having a real bad time for your pawns as well. Any extra items will be transfer to your storage once you lose the pawns.
Which is good because it is assuming that you will change classes a lot and often. Unlock and use the passive perks as you get them. Try a little of everything.
http://dragonsdogma.wikia.com/wiki/Legion%27s_Might buy that asap and give it to your mage pawn for easy mode.
At any point you are rich and yet somehow still having a hard time switch the game to easy mode. I believe it may force you to restart but you will keep your levels and items so treat it as an early NG+.
You've already got Yolandi so Die Antwoord.
Christ Almighty, why is everything in the HUD so poorly designed?
>tiny as fuck health/stamina bars
>huge as fuck controls display
>quest updates that cover up 1/4 of the screen
Is there a way to change this shit?
Well, just wait and hope someone will rent your pawn.
Or just post your ID or whatever that is you can look up in the rift.
Use the internet to pimp more efficiently.
It makes the pawns hug you in combat.
Read that to know what you are fucking with. Fixing it won't do any good if you don't know how to prevent it.
Read that for details how to fix it.
Also the wikia is extremely good. Give it a good look in general if you ever get stuck with something.
>make a pawn
>every time I enter the rift, it's full peoples personal variations of pretty-girl-waifu
>realize I should have wanked before making a pawn
>hire an interesting looking mage healer dude
>go on adventures
>no one ever hires my pawn because it looks like all the rest
Like, 90% of all pawns are lolis or pretty women.
Man, what was I thinking.
>playing as a loli and seeing all these pawns genuflecting before me
>mfw I think I just got a new fetish
Giving them commands like "Go!" gives points to Scather ( I think). There are knowledge chairs in the pawn guild/inn, you can use those to change your pawns inclination.
But the best/easiest way is to buy potion in the camp. There is one that completely resets your pawn and other potions which give your pawn inclinations. The NPC is in the room with the riftportal.
You need RC for those though

Who else /sociopath/ Arisen?
Anyone else's game hard freeze randomly while trying to load areas? It completely freezes my PC and I have to reboot it.
I'm afraid of playing the game lest it happen while it auto saves and I'm fucked.
I posted this >>324079497 so read that as everything I said is true but because idiots are so stuck on the idea of min-maxing here this image. Not sure how good it is as I never needed it. My personal skills and BBI equipment pretty much cancel out my base stats.
>perfect mouse control
that's all I wanted, and I got it. Not I can fucking hit a flying bird with my short bow in one shot, I can actually aim at the cyclops eyes, and with some clever remapping, I'm perfectly fine with the keyboard controls
>shift for main skills
>alt for secondary skills
perfect. I put run on middle click because I was used to clicking the stick to run with a controller, and middle clicking feels similar.
Now that I know everything is working, time to add into free to the game
>find loli pawn in the rift
>OH BOY OH BOY
>sounds like a middleaged woman
>playing through hardmode first pc run
>the bandits around the rock right before the entrance of the witch wood
i dont remember ever dying this much
You can go solo and there is even a skill that give you a power boost for doing such. Just need to toss your main pawn off of a cliff though. No punishment for doing such so no worries.
the difference between leveling up in assassin vs warrior is like 1 point per level, but your weapons are going to be adding literally over 1000 damage by endgame. It's completely irrelevant. You could go from level 1 to level cap as a cleric and you'll be equally effective if you switch to assassin and equip some bitterblack knives
Not really relevant to the discussion but how good will DD run on this toaster?
So how well will this game run on my shitty laptop? Has MT Frameworks worked its magic like it did with DMC4?
Is there a benchmark or anything that I can try?
The witchwood bandits have always been completely broken. They were the scariest thing in the original release because one of them would just always oneshot you unless you were level 30+
So...what do i do now? I just came to the village where i become a...leader of zombies? Forgot the name and i fought a cyclops and did a combat trial thing.
Got a bunch of side quests to kill random stuff but how do I continue the story? Or is this like a monster hunter type of game?
>try and make a brown muscle girl pawn
>no matter what I do she always has a manface
I'm so fucking horrible at making characters it's not even funny. And it doesn't help that ALL THE HAIRS IN THIS GAME SUCK ASS
Pls hook a nigga up with some sliders senpaitachi
Magick Archer shine in BBI content where you are in rooms and arrows bounce off the walls like crazy. In general though they are great.
Compared to 360/PS3 it's alien technology.
I'm using a 560 TI too, shadows and draw distance are set to "medium", everything else is set to high. The framerate sometimes dips down to 40-50
What the fuck is up with the stupid autosave system?
I've went down all of everfall, then died on the way back to these fucking endless tentacles and the ogre because the gates for going were deliberately closed and it put me back to all the way before I went down.
Why couldn't it fucking save when I reached bottom?
Yes. I seen many confused newbies do such. Most people who are aware of the content wait til at least level 30-ish though. Most people agree actually doing the content is level 60 range.
rate my midget
Anon, here is a secret. You can play as both. In fact the game encourage you to do so. Don't worry about min-maxing. Only idiots give a shit about 1% damage difference. If you one shot things then you are one shotting things.

Where's the save file location? My achievements are bugged and if its like it was on Fallout 4 then making a new character and getting the first one should fix it. But this game only has one fucking save file so i have to get it first
Isn't hard mode designed for new game plus players?
I do not understand you people. No one on this website is going to be impressed with you or want to suck your cock for doing something stupidly difficult in a game.
I'm guessing you picked fighter?
First time playing DD. Set it on hard for the hell of it.
Mostly just using my bow as long as the enemies keep attacking in groups and it seems to work just fine.
I want to remake my pawn, can I reload to before I made it?
Is it weird that I got a big
bonerjust from looking at this guy's texture?
If you saved before you made it, yes.
Otherwise either save up rift crystals until you can afford the single-use item, wait until endgame for the multi-use item, or use the cheat engine shit.
I don't have enough dedotated WAM for this.
Any settings I can change to fix that?
>A passing grade
Nice, thanks anon.
Nope, it's an obscure animu character, needs glasses too.
>guy hires my qt pawn

I'm glad he enjoyed her.

come join and did I do good?

In hard mode you're lucky if you can even survive one hit from an enemy if you haven't built tanky. Then you can survive two. I have yet to encounter an enemy anywhere near my level that takes more than 3 hits to kill me.
fug I just played this for like 8 hours straight and now it's 2 in the morning, I need to sleep.
haven't even got to gran soren yet, decided not to rush shit now that I'm playing it on PC.
Now that it's on PC, will it be easier to find the specs for each character? I'm tempted to do a run in the future where I just pattern my arisen and their pawn after an NPC, who then is becomes the beloved for my arisen.
Ok, hear me out. Min-maxing DOES NOT MATTER. I can't make it any more clear. Endgame equipment will cancel out any min-maxing you will do.
If you take anything from this post then just take this. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT IT.
But I'm going to give you the technical stuff anyway. Every time you level as a class, the class you were at the time will decide your stats increase. So early in the game if you stick to a magic class 90% of the time you may find your physical attack suck ass. Assuming you switch class as you should though this won't be an issue and even if you stuck with a physical class for the whole game the endgame equipment will make you as good of a magic user as any other. Once again. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT IT.
I am so sick of people talking about min-maxing when it is as effective as Training a Caterpie to level 100 on Pokemon just to forever box it. You are just wasting your time if you worry about such and ruining any fun you may have.
>Can't think of a fucking name
>End up deciding to use this
Do I have to do anything when I level up? It seems automatic but I'm unsure.
Also, is there a way to just tool around in the character creation?
IS THAT KRAIMER FROM SEINFELD
I take my idea for names from the moniker list. The amount of Capcom characters is amusing
So I can and should be switching around and having spread out stats. That sounds way more fun. Thanks for spoonfeding me, anon. I always worry too much, gonna try to just have fun this time.
Not really. Spells are fun and viable throughout the main game, but eventually you'll only bother to use holy bolts for the reasons you stated. Especially when you fight multiple wyverns raining lightning on you and you literally can't stop moving to cast. You figured it out early, I suppose.
The only spells that will always be worth a shit on sorcerer are gicel to deal physical damage when you need it, and voidspell because mages can't cure petrification and fuck carrying around items for it. Spells can also pay off if homing bolts just refuse to hit weak spots, but enemies like that are few and far between.
Sorcerer isn't a super fun class when you realize how inefficient the spells really are for their cast time.
It is automatic. If you have autism then ignore this but if you think you can handle it:
The class you level up as decide what stats get increased. While unnecessary some people with autism find min-maxing characters a thing they should do.
my arisen is ready to learn how to please all of these young yet skillful women
Good guess, I said animu but it's actually a manga character.
Also the skin tone was an accident I have to change.
How do you get the Xbox controller prompts? I'm using a PS4 controller with DS4Windows, and it's giving me just "button 8, button 9, button 10" etc. It's really hard to tell which button to press for that.
Yes. One of the wonderful parts of the game.
HOWEVER if you want a little idea, the first ten levels give you the biggest stat increases. So a lot of people start with Strider, since it gives you lots of stamina, for the first 10. Stamina is useful for everyone and this gives it a nice shot in the arm. Totally optional though.
Well, I figured, but the thing is DS4Windows makes your PS4 emulate that of a 360 controller. This is the only game where it's just been numbered buttons instead of proper stuff like A, X, Y, B, or X, O, Triangle and Square.
First time playing this game. Made my Arisen a huge viking warrior dude, as tall as they come and built like a tank.
It's hilarious and also kind of annoying watching him go wide eyed and slack jawed in every cutscene as if I made some Japanese looking twink
OH MY GOD, A BAND OF LEPRECHAUNS
Try out every vocation and max it out, there's load of easy ways to fill the vocation in no time flat, then buy all the augments you want when switching to the vocation you'll be sticking with for the majority. Seriously, there are skills practically required for a good sorc, but need things from strider and warrior.
>he doesn't have the nude mod installed
Late reply but as an fyi to you or anyone else, you can drop any notice board escort quest you might happen to be on by just going back to the notice board again and canceling it there.
If I remember correctly zombies have a fuckload of health for their level. Holy rips them a new one.
It stays in offline mode if it can't go online when it starts up. Go to options.
They're masterworks all, you can't go wrong.
As soon as you get there? Even on hard mode he isn't hard.
Take out the goblins first and the soldiers and Rook should be able to knock him down easily. If you can range then use range attacks. If you are melee then attack when you feel it is safe.
