New Arisen/pawn r8 thread
Discuss DD, trade pawns, have fun
Arisen front, pawn in the back
God damn how many of these threads have we gone through today
I rage quitted cause this bastard grabbed me and i died right away
Guess people weren't joking about BBI
Tfw no one hiring your pawn although you trained her well. She a good girl and a beast in combat.
here is my arisen can't seem to find the pic i took with my pawn. Anyone know where the screenshots taken with a games camera go?
My pawn is Fang. The others are rentals.
Potentially created by one of your nerds.
>tfw no one wanted to rate my Arisen and pawn last thread.
Arisen on the right.
It must suck getting stabbed in your balls.
Was exploring the vicinity of gran soren when I stumbled upon this midget.
Pretty sure I saw her in another thread.
Can the owner of this pawn please come and pick her up?
In one of the previous threads someone wrote
> Check their bestiary knowledge, if it has "an unfamiliar foe" then she's been rented, it's the only way to tell at the minute.
That can't be true right?, I pirated and have a bunch of those
Reposting muh pawn because the other thread closed right after.
Her skin is like, Drow black even though the menu lighting makes it look brown.
Before you hate on her for being a loli try to keep in mind she'll be a tall busty elf girl when she matures.
That and I just want those pedo rift crystals on top of you can't romance your pawns anyway. If you could I'd probably just have made her look like an adult right off the bat, but I was going for a recreation of my console characters.
I had grapnel instead of dark affinity beforehand.
I like having the actual debuff spells as secondaries on a healer pawn because it makes more sense to me than just giving them elemental nukes or something.
I think blind and silence are underrated. People seemed to love my pawn on PS3 and I built her the same way there.
She level 23?
If so, was literally about to hire, no lie. However, saw another pawn named Abel and he edged her out slightly. Had to go with High Anodyne.
>not looking online for help

>get this feeling like I shouldn't be here

>a sliver of life drops
>well fuck, proceed to fight as hard as I can, kill one and then get destroyed
10/10 would die again.
Welcome to Bitterblack Isle
She looks so happy running towards her death.
Not playing the PC version but posting my healer pawn.
man i wish i could actually be in the world of dd and go around bullying other people's pawns
Like ds2 AI invasions, but with pawns? I was thinking this same thing.
hire me pawn
>mashing buttons works too, doesn't it?
You need to mach, turn both joysticks and slap the triggers.
Even then I only got it once. Egression augment is the only sureway. Wakestone otherwise.
I am playing on hard mode for the first time after having played DA on ps3
how hard am I going to get shit on when I get to BBI after finishing the main game?
btw I'm a warrior
I switched to magick archer and this shit is fucking insane compared to warrior
Should I make my loli Arisen a warrior or an assassin?
I really feel like this game would be so much more amazing if they followed summonings and invasions. This game is just begging for it
Instead they straight up made a F2P MMO
Which starter vocation is the most FUN?
Is casting magic n shit amazing?
It was fun for sure, I actually like being able to plunge into something I have no clue or not I should be there.
Is it a lovely stay?
I already went back to the fisher town, the farthest I've been is outside the tunnel the well leads to
While I wish it wasn't just the DLC, I love it when games have areas you just shouldn't be in.
Help me anons, what vocation do I choose for my main pawn if I'm a fighter?
Are you a bad enough dude to go double Warrior?
BBI is fun as hell once you are able to survive a few rooms. I'm not sure if you know much about it, but the areas are fantastic and the feeling of dread is amazing.
This track... THIS FUCKING TRACK.
I wanted a ranged/healing type because it's supposed to be Feena but just wondering to avoid a big mistake.
Because I wanted to make a priest/healer type. Not every character has to be all about damage. Try being creative for once.
She's not brown you idiot. She's literally black. When I say literally I mean it. She is not even a little bit brown. It's the lighting that makes her look brown.
Lets see your pawn though.
That's okay. I need to get around to go back to the inn to update her but I keep getting my ass kicked.
Yes I decided to fight the Ogre in the quarry again because I wanted to keep my wakestone. I'm back to chain dying to it every time it decides to fuck me with its shockwave hitboxes or grabs that suck me in even though I'm nowhere near its hands.
Lets see your pawn buddy.
Is there a way to remove the water marks or am I just going to have to get used to being triggered each time I lurk a DragonDong thread?
I wanted to avoid double melee but I really wanted this. It's too bad you only get one customizable pawn.
Has capcom or someone in charge of the game acknowledged this problem already? This is a really fucking shitty thing that shouldn't be happening at all in the first week of the game's launch. It's ruining all the fun.
i said this in the last thread, you don't need to fight it, you can sneak past it
yeah I don't even use the fighter's shield so warrior probably makes more sense.
Is there any benefit to maxing out a vocation? I'm 1 level away for both arisen and pawn so I figured i'd just do it.
>Want to have a ranger pawn
>Look up guides
>To min max a god tier ranger pawn you need to have your pawn level as certain classes and they can't be a ranger till level 101+
I started as a Strider with Strider pawn and now I'm level 19. Should I continue as a Strider or try out Fighter to get more attack power, or go Ranger? I like the idea of archery, even if it's really weak so far.
>I literally do no damage
>Pawns do 10x more damage than I do
literally just press the steam screenshot key or whatever else you use to take screenshots
Dumb bullshit scar over the eye everyone else has. Get some original ideas scrublord.
Healing is handy but that's pretty much all Mages are good for.
Ranger is great, Tenfold Arrow is too fucking good.
There is a split second after you take the picture when it doesn't show the watermark, you can get a cap then if you are quick enough.
My Arisen is the cutest, this is indisputable.
>Ranger is great, Tenfold Arrow is too fucking good.
It's only good for spamming blast arrows. A well timed deathly arrow deals more damage and doesn't drain your stam like shit.
How else you going to teach them right?
your arisen is a 6/10 at best anon
>There is a split second after you take the picture when it doesn't show the watermark, you can get a cap then if you are quick enough.
There's also a mod to remove it.
He probably was hired and you just never noticed. Keep in mind that its broke as fuck not working properly.
Check your beastiary for unknown, something or somethings, I forget what it was.
Finally made my mages into sorcerers.
>made a Fat bastard pawn and an Austin Powers arisen
>that skin and hair combo
Roleplaying as Ciaran from DkS with good old Arty backing me up.
Shit's pretty cash.
Of course nobody knows what their faces actually look like, so I just kind of made what I pictured in my headcanon.
>Tfw no banana sword
That's just the lighting of the area. She's on the perfect lower shade of brown.
Also she doesn't have a black's facial structure.
>everyone wanted to make a loli
>I made one too
>now I'm running around with 3 lolis following me
>made a Hitler Arisen and Anne Frank pawn
>Check your beastiary for unknown, something or somethings, I forget what it was.
>turns out my pawn has that
>some poor bastard in the world actually hired my granny prior to her switching vocations
>he had a fighter with only two skills and nothing else
sorry guy who ever you were
>full sorcerer party
I've never actually done it. Time to see if I can find some utilitarians.
Nah, I felt the same way. I played the PS3 version on this same monitor with the same brightness setting, and it wasn't nearly as bright as the PC version.
The higher resolution and fidelity in general might be the reason for that, though, given the game isn't so blurry it looks like somebody rubbed vaseline over my screen.
I think it's like the third time I've posted my arisen today but whatever. More than half the replies I've gotten have been memes. R8 my dude people!
I'll post my pawn later once I'm done redoing him so he doesn't look like a Samas Arann action figure you'd find next to some knock off powerrangers in chinatown.
I let my weeb tastes dictate how my arisen would look.
also your arisen is qt/10
I've probably started like 5 new games due to wanting to make a change to my main pawn, but not being able to because of the damn auto-saves. I just met Mercedes, will I be able to change my pawn's looks and voice any time soon?
Use 2 of the potions in a row iirc.
Rate this bitch. Been trying the last 2 threads but it got washed away in the shitposting.
"Failed to save game."
Anyone else getting this?
Anyone know the problem or the fix?
pls rate but no bully
I haven't really got one of my pawn so just imagine the typical loli with that stupid princess outfit on.
To the ps3 owner of a lvl 23 pawn named "smeg head," hes great.
It's that fucking HDR option. Seriously, turn that trash to low. It fucks the glow of everything making light sources at night seem fake as fuck and it fucks up the night. It also eats FPS like crazy if you're going for 4k like I am.
Also r8 my qts in >>324209168. First time I've posted mine.
wait is there cross platform in the game? you can hire ps3 pawns? fuck me, i might just get my ps3 up and running to play around and hire some of you guys.
He's cute. It's nice to see someone with good taste for a change.
>tfw was gonna play after the packers cardinals game and was glad the game was all but over then Godgers went full Godgers and now it's overtime
>Watching sports instead of playing video games
This doesn't answer my question.
Also, I fail to see how wanting to make changes to my pawn upsets you.
Would you hire her /v/?
Also rate please!
Getting 2,000 RC and going back to the encampment will give you a one-time jump back to the Pawn creation menu.
Otherwise it's not until you beat the game and get the option to edit your arisen/pawn whenever.
No worries, I'm actually getting the urge to play mine again as well. I'm unsure about getting PC version myself since I played the hell out of the PS3 game and not sure I'm up for doing it all over again.
So, I'm guessing this game is pretty CPU intensive? My CPU is shit (8320) and I have a 970
I get horrible drops, which is a shame, because the game is pretty ugly.
I max out TPP and TW3 without drops
well that's fucking
okay. people have different hobbies. i've always prefered playing sports over watching them, but i understand that you do not share my opinions and my have vastly different tastes than me. have a good night, anon. you're a good person.
Me and muh minion.
Currently trying out magick archer, it's going alright but from when I played the game before I feel like I took care of enemies much faster when I played as a mystic knight. Think I might try sorcerer next just for fun then enter bitterblack isle as a mystic knight.
Thank you. Guess it's time for another new game.
>Arisen is a giant brown muscular amazon with long hair
>Pawn is a giant pale muscular amazon with a mohawk
>Both going to be warriors
Im playing through it for the first time since I bought the ps3 ver a week before the port was announced and didn't get to play it until recently. The port doesnt add anything new, but the frame rate and render distance alone make it look worth while.
>they look too much like brothers
>which is kinda hot too, 2bh
That does sound appealing. Brb, changing my headcannon roleplaying. Forbidden love is best love. Extra forbidden love is extra best love.
i played them all through high school competitively and then intramurals through college, but i'm 25 now and besides golf i don't have the time
or friends since i moved away from everyone i grew up with for workto play them anymore
i actually have two monitors, i just don't like dividing my attention between two forms of media
Well yeah, since apparently booting up the game and changing a setting so you yourself can see how different the glow on objects such as lanterns in between both is way above your capabilities.
>not enough attractive, strong women.
boy, do i have the pawn for you!
I know it's old, I played and beat it on consoles. I'm playing it now on PC, the drops are pretty horrible, some areas, like at the very start of the game were a solid 60 fps. But Gran Soren is so fucking laggy, dips into the 30's
I like the terrible haircuts in this game. It's fun forcing them on cute girls.
Your arisen is androgynous/10 though, can't even tell which gender. Suppose you were going for that. Outfit looks lopsided though.
Still early in the game, but she's a keeper
The ponytail clipping triggers me.
your PC is just shit, I'm using an i5 from 2012 with a 970, ultra settings at 4k, solid 60 fps
you gain different stats when you level up based on your vocation. but, even if you deliberately gimped yourself as much as possible, the difference it would make wouldn't be enough to really matter
Seems to be a lack of party hats in this thread.
On a phenom iix4 965 black with an r9 380 here, so I had the same issue. Turn HDR to low. I had solid 60fps indoors, but outdoors, depending on the camera angle, it would fluctuate between 20-60. Turned that to low, grass and shadows to medium and it's been solid 60 ever since.
There is a way to tell if someone has been hiring your pawn by the way
>mfw watching my Warrior pawn do jumping light attacks
And before you reply back with the usual /v/ retardation, here, I already took the pics for you.
Pic related is with HDR set to High. As you can see, the lighting on lanterns, specially on that guy on the back look like glowing balloons of light and the lighting near my character is too bright and fucked up. As a result, nights outside look like shit and are far too bright because every light source glows way too much. Maintaining 60 fps at all times at 4k with this setting is also not doable on my setup.
Next screen with HDR set to Low incoming.
Whoever said Warrior Pawns are shit is a retard
Warrior/Warrior/Warrior/Mage set up, and I'm having an absolute blast, everything dies SO fast
Half the time we're just playing pinball between all them Corona Slashes and Whirlwinds
All you gotta do is get them with Scather/Utilitarian and they won't stand the fuck still until everything's fucking destroyed
Oh shit that explains the fucking pages of "an unknown enemy" my pawn has. It does not, however, explain how he still hasn't learned that Saurians are weak to ice
or why anyone would hire a medicant/guardian pawn with no heal spells
Me on the left
Mine has started to do jumping heavies because I do it all the time
Aren't you able to change everything at the barbershop? I changed my pawn and my MC just now. Costs a few thousand though.
Now with HDR set to Low. As you can see, lanterns no longer look like giant lightballs. Same guy that was on the first pic. The lighting now looks natural, my character is not engulfed in some weird supernatural aura anymore and I can maintain 60 fps at 4k all times with this setting.
Now stop being retarded.
It looks like my loli has a big bald spot when she gets wet.
And she's still sparking, maybe the water messed up her circuitry.
>not even in the remotely same viewpoint
>HURR WHAT IS THE LANTER ON THE MAIN CHARACTER STARING STRAIGHT AT THE CAMERA GUYZE GURR WHAT ARE ALL THE LANTERNS IN THE BACKGROUND GURRR
Yeah, now you're officially a retard. Instead of trying to damage control so hard for getting blown the fuck out like the idiot you are, go boot your game up and test it yourself, you bad loser.
Was starting on hard mode a mistake?
I'm tired of getting my ass handed to me and I want to do a deathless run.
Also people shitting on my pawn here are making me want to restart on top of wanting to do a deathless run but I'd be losing 20 hours of progress.
I should probably just refund it and save myself further frustration.
>Geralt, do you ever get the feeling that we're incredibly crude bootlegs?
What's the fastest method of changing your character and pawn's appearance?
How did you blow me out? You said light with HDR was fake when clearly it's realistic and you haven't shown me any benchmarks about your performance, faggot.
The one in damage control is you and you can't even do a proper comparison. Fucking autistic.
Yeah, hard mode is unbalanced as all fuck
I don't know if you got the idea here. If you did, whoever told you to do it is a retard.
Try out normal mode, no need to restart even.
But I want 0 deaths on my counter. The game tracking my deaths drives me nuts. I can deal with all the other stuff it tracks but tracking my deaths seriously gets under my skin.
It also doesn't make any sense because if you died you should be dead. How can you die 50 or so times?
I don't want to have to lose my progress but I feel like that's my only choice at this point. That or refund it and just let it be. I mean I played it on console already.
>How did you blow me out?
Just like this.
Wanna keep digging that hole?
Me and my bae, how'd I do?
>wandering in the forest exploring shit
>chimera out of fucking nowhere
>fight like my life depends on it
>pawns goes down everytime but always revive her
>after 20 minutes I finally beat the chimera
I'm loving this game already, too bad fighting bandits is no fun.
Has your pawn ever stabbed a wolf so hard that she decided to keep its skewered corpse on her blade?
>Pawn rate and hate
Mouth is probably the weak point, imo. Kinda reminds me of a knock off natalie dormer. Like, a porn knock off.
>Kill dozens of bandits wandering around
>Run into random pack of bandits that look exactly the same in the same area
>Get fucking 2 shot
>Holy fuck what was that shit
>Lose half hour of playing
>Next time avoid those guys
>Leader of the bandits (doing the tome quest) isn't even half as strong as that one random pack of assholes
Why wasn't one of THOSE fuckers the leader?
I still love this game so far though.
How far are you into the game? You can just switch to hard-mode and the game re-starts from the beginning but you keep all of your gear and vocation progress. If you die a whole bunch of times you can switch back to baby mode.
Does this game not support crossfire? It keeps randomly crashing on me and giving me this message.
Hey everyone! Come over here and see how good I look!
Question about the game. I have the volume set to max in game and in the mixer and it's really low. I struggle to hear the game especially if I am on skype with some people. Anyone have this problem and know how to fix? Also does this game have "junk" items that can be sold for money, or does every item you pick up have uses?
>cheesing my way through everything using the makers finger
When I played on the 360 and ps3 I thought this was just a joke item. But I used it on the coliseum cyclopes and I was in awe.
You do look pretty fucking badass anon. Good job.
My Mage pawn is Utilitarian/Medicant. That's good right?
At least other people's pawns aren't getting hired either. I probably shouldn't have added to the brown elf healer market but at least she isn't a Guardian. No pic on this computer but again it's not that original anyway.
So the RC system is broken then I take it?
Not getting any RC at all. Capcom mentioned that swapping save files could cause issues with it and at first I figured this was the case, but it seems more people aren't getting RC from having their pawn hired.
This shit needs to be fixed...
>tfw big strong pawn to keep you safe at night
Not every class obviously, why would a mage, who's weak af, be able to do good damage and have the strength to hang on to it?
That's the trade off for being able to do so much from a range.
Fug, the thing that enables you to change your looks at will costs like 5k RC and BBI is still miles away, so no drops to get it from either.
Can't imagine trying to decurse BBI gear like this, they better fix it soon
How does the pawn rent system work anyway? Can my pawn be rented while I'm playing? Or only when I'm offline? What if I want to go online and my pawn is being used by someone else? Will I be unable to use him?
You know that castle you went wyrm hunting at that had the two cyclops?
The camp next to it?
Go there and head north following the track until the end of the cliff. A cyclops, chimera and a golem. At the end keep going east then circle back after the arena with two cyclops, head around the dragon, talk to the guy back in camp, wait three days, repeat.
Is she okay? I think I could have done better.
>does the pawn system work
But to give less of a joke response your pawn is just uploaded to the cloud and anyone can use it whenever they like. Every single person in the world could be using your pawn at the same time.
It can be rented at any time. A version of it is saved every time you sleep at an inn, and that version is then put on the "pawn market" so to speak. People then choose to hire that version, 10 people can use it simultaneously, basically.
Your pawn is never unusable by you, never. Only unusuable by others if you set it to offline. But there's no reason to.
Normally you would get rift crystals for having your pawn hired and stuff, but it's broken.
I dont really understand something about the end of the game.
So when your character kills themselves and transfers their pawns soul into their body does your character actually split from body and soul and continues to rule over the world or are they totally dead? And if so why does your character appear as god in the next playthrough if they are dead?
Your character is dead. That's why it says you're smiling, because you're denying the eternal chain by ending your own life rather than waiting for a successor. Your character only appears if you're offline, if you're online then it's another player's arisen. I have no idea if there's an in-game explanation for why you're still god in offline mode.
Here i took one of me and my pawn. Like i said stupid princess loli.
Pretty much the same as the first chracter from https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UZwI6OYyorvBf4UULsH3ts5pM0bnfLVMsbsLL226OM0/edit#gid=1
Just with some changes to build and facial details
Where the fuck did I find this dress? It's literally better than 90% of the shit I have.
What do you guys think of my pawn? I made her with the theme of "Orc Princess"
which is also her name
Sorry for the shitty screenshot. I never realized it so damn hard to get a good screenshot in this game.
>make my pawn
>accidentally create the french chick
Oh well. Am I punished at all for changing vocations? I'm a ranger now, but I want to try the Magic/Fighter hybrid for some Battlemage action.
Either that or make Paran.
From the "Rest Camp" head SOUTH to the "Tomb of..."
You'll find a cyclops first on your left, next will be a Chimera, finally a golem at the tomb.
East, cyclops/goblin arena watch for the ballista
Circle back just above the area you fought the chimera for more goblins and around the dragon back to camp.
Rest 3 days, repeat
It might be the best for pre-dragon
