How do I git
betterat the melee combat system in this game?
that forehead /10
hit the weak spots, there're clamps on the back side that hold the armor in place iirc
Get a dashing move to enter and escape combat quickly.
Get a heavy damage dealer move for when opportunities arise.
Get a move that uses i-frames to "dodge" attacks while in the thick of it.
Take advantage of elemental and debilitation weaknesses.
Make use of your terrain (cliffs, water, gun powder).
Use pawns to draw aggro away from you.
Do escort mission disappear if I continue the main quest? I want to escort ser berne for the long sword, but I wanted to the do the explore the everfall first so I can get a port crystal and plant it in shadow fort before I do it so I don't risk him dying
This is my loli and her loli apprentice.
For some reason my Arisen started grinning when Elysion talked about Salvation and stuff, I didn't get a picture tho
Trying to fix my potatohead, is this any good?
Also made her brown because why the fuck not
All mouths seem to have this beak thing going on
>mfw I won't get to play DD in 60fps without letter boxing.
Enjoy your game PC friends. I wish my first time was this glorious.
It still seems like attacks are deflecting, even when hitting the back points, but I'll try it anyways. Going from Warrior to Assassin has been a blast, but I do miss some things.

Can I at least get to fight more griffins where I actually get to fight it?
Yeah I forgot to take off the freckles, they worked when she was pale but don't fit with darker skin. Took them off now, maybe I'll put one of the small scars on there instead.
Ratings and all that stuff work now since a few hours ago. I get RC almost every time I rest.
>tfw not 5 stars
griffins start to spawn after that quest it's on a 7 day respawn like the drake.
be aware though they do like to run away, better burn the shit out of it's wings or weigh it down
Oil it and using Blast Arrows kills it in about 3 seconds mind
how the fuck do you even do that
also you get that ring to mark your waifu knowing shes been taken

Is the reason she's so popular because she's the closest beloved to Caska?
I've been bitching and rubbing my head about the same thing. I don't remember them being this much of a pain in the ass in the ps3 version. It's not even that they're all strong, no it's just that one fucker out of the bunch who has slightly more armor than the rest. I guess that extra armor is just enough to soak up all my blows and give him the confidence to slap my shit in one hit.
I haven't bothered with ENB yet, is it stable and is the difference noticeable?
How do I kill that Gazer boss in BBI with sorcerer? It was easy as hell when I was playing on console as warrior, but I can't just damage properly it's eye with any spells and pawns are too fucking dumb to climb.
does anyone else get sound popping when sprinting?
yeah, except for the part that Caska actually knows how to fight
Mercedes is just a drunk poser
no she stays in the castle getting drunk while her men are being raped by a griffen
Just now or has it been a while?
Obviously it's a more advanced playstyle but once you have Autonomy even BBI becomes a complete joke, just be sure to find the ring that upgrades Gouge even further for maximum damage
You mean the big eye?
Kill the tentacles obviously so it gets staggered
>Take these bitchs out one by one
>Think I have the upper hand
>Move in for the kill
>More pop out
Loli mages are OP, saved my ass more than I can remember
There's also an enemy that can continuously summon them
Get it to poke itself in the eye
She is not cute, she is a knight and a she-goat. Neither are cute.
I just got my 3 followers, went back to the village and cleared out the well with lizardmen
it's fun so far but I don't really know what I'm doing
I wanted to play a 2H warrior but everyone said you can't reach shit later on so it sucks
I managed to make it fall to the ground only once by attacking tentacles, but charging spells to damage that eye takes too long and pawns just don't do shit. I'll probably kills this shitter with Magic Archer.

Then do it, you will reach rank 10 vocation on it well before reaching any area that makes it difficult for warriors and even then it's doable if you really wanna play with that vocation.
If you feel lost then just check the quests and mark a main mission one.
Magic archer kinda sucks at first but the get really good once u unlock all the skills. Its important to understand that the skills (bow and dagger) have elemental types so u have watch out for elemental strengths and weaknesses.
MA is best if u max out magic and play as a glass cannon.
Must also mention that bow skills for MA use the magic stat not physical so going from strider/ranger/assassin doesnt help MA.

PAWNS ARE NOW WORKING
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
THE PAWN SYSTEM IS WORKING
Okay so, I've put more study into this than you'll want to believe.
Griffons will spawn around Gran Soren and the Eradication Site. They like to show up in the early morning, so you'll want to have a crystal set up at the Eradication Site to have the best chances of finding that one. Go to sleep until morning and then head out. For the one near Gran Soren, just go outside. Hang around the areas with the buffalo and the harpy pool. If you find any goblins, that's perfect, stick near them. Kill 'em and hold on to one of the corpses, that'll get the griffon's attention real quick.
All of the above applies until you unlock the postgame. That's where things get crappy because literally nobody has good advice on how to find a griffon at this point.
Nobody except me and maybe some other random anons.
Okay, so here's what you do. Forget the Eradication Site, a cockatrice moves in there instead. You can sometimes catch one flying overhead around Gran Soren, but I've never been able to get that thing to land so screw it. You want to go to the Hillfigure Knoll. Now, go to the cave at the knoll and go west. At some point, it shouldn't take long, you'll find a cliff with a short drop. Somewhere at the foot of this cliff is a small camp. Set up a crystal nearby then go back to Gran Soren and sleep until morning. Ferrystone out to the knoll and take a look at the camp. If it's got bandits, disregard and try again another day. If goblins are hanging around, stay nearby and wait. Eventually, a griffon is going to bodyslam that camp. You can probably get its attention faster by killing the goblins and carrying a corpse.
are you fucking kidding?
this game's melee combat has to be the most shallow and simple i've seen since that lord of the rings game with assassins creed
just spam the charged two hander and youre fine
some times you spam the ultra charge and it can one hit most things.
>game doesn't have an anime style at all
>children look like actual annoying ugly potato children
>people still obsessed with making "lolis"
Yes there is. Worse yet, when I was trying to get one for a quest, nobody Google could point me to ever seemed to have a reliable way of encountering them. Lots of "Mew is under the truck" bullcrap that never got called out.
How do I play non-Warrior melee classes? All the skills just don't seem to hit hard enough and I feel like it's faster to be warrior and blow them the fuck up instead of waiting around to perfect block something as Magick Knight. My pawns will be blasting shit so while I'm standing around like a retard waiting to perfect block they will stagger enemies and blow them away. if I go in swinging my weapon I can't cancel into a perfect block (at least I don't think I can) so it seems like I spend most of the time just standing around.
>I accidently hit it with Cutting Wind
>oh shit, I'm sorry
>Pawns won't stop hitting him now
>Goreclops starts struggling
>breaks free as I climb the stairs
>grab what I need
>mfw I have to go back down there and face his wrath
That dark enchantment shit for MK lets him hit body parts all over and do a ton of damage just wailing at someone. Blocking is mainly defensive unless you've dropped a cannon trap, or to stagger. Fighter, well, fighter just shits out damage.
>abandon all delusions of control
What did he mean by this?
Who is the dragonforged, did he kill the dragon as well?
Didn't you listen to your pawns?
They clearly tell you that ogres pray on females
>use abyssal anguish
>use enchant of choice
>summon 3 great cannon
>get to rank 9
>aquire dragons maw or what it's called
>kill literally everything in seconds
>I'm standing around like a retard waiting to perfect block
Use block as reactionary not holding it down waiting for shit, keep attacking and when they counter just tap block for a quick stagger. Alternative when you can't escape a big attack then block.
>tfw pawn got hired and came back with 63044 RC
>mfw finding out if you have the materials for a level 3 upgrade you can bypass level 1 and 2 entirely.
I don't know why, I never knew this back on PS3. It's saving me loads of money early on.
learn all the weight carry and faster movement skills from all the melee classes. Then switch to bows and sniper class. breeze through the game as sniper while killing everything quickly.
>Did that cover the porting cost?
>Do you think Capcom is happy?
I guess. It made a tiny profit overall, but 100k for a AAA game sold at half the usual price is pitiful.
Where is that 'how many times your pawn have been hired' counter? I feel like I checked all the menues but I can't find it for shit...
r8 my arisen and pawn
arisen middle, pawn is the hooded one, Geralt came by for monster slaying and randomly placed rocks cause that's all he's good for
It's what I've been using. Works great.
Speaking of, how does it work. Say I gave some guy 3 fish, and gave Tit Merchant 5 fish. Does she like me more? What if I refused to escort Tit Merchant after the first quest?
Dragonforged is an Arisen that faced the Dragon and fled, thus ensuring the survival of the Dragon and the continuation of the cycle until the NEXT Arisen rises up to face him.
He stays cursed with unending life until his chains to the Dragon, the cycle, and big daddy God the Seneschal are broken.
"Abandon all delusions of control" is Grigori's way of saying "You're fucked no matter what you do, win or lose. The cycle WILL continue."
>pawns dying left and right
>reviving them every 5 seconds
>they're finally all alive
>dragon uses his Pawn ending roar to kill them all instantly
>the cycle continues
>tfw no one rents my pawn
I dont understand.
Would you rent her /v/?
I can't tell you how many free hits i've taken
The Dragonforged in an ancient arisen, over 1000 years old. he lived in that city that you can see in the mountains in the background. he was tasked with beating the dragon, but failed, took its bargain, and ran in shame from his village, leaving it to die. his wish was for knowledge of all things.
pussied out. The duke, Edmund Dragonsbane made a deal with the dragon. They, as well as you, are all Arisen. As is Grigori, who's the only one of them who's actually killed a dragon, but he was too weak to take over after God so he made him a dragon to find him a new candidate
There are three stages of affinity. Normal, blushing, and glowing. If you get a npc to glow you have maxed their affinity. Grigori takes the npc you "last" maxed affinity on before you set out for the great wall. The princess and jew tits both have quests before going to the great wall and completing those quests will auto max their affinity so you have to remember to max out your waifus affinity again.
Instant Reset shouldnt be underestimated it's incredibly useful in every situation you need an ohshit button to get the fuck out of dodge

I want to go on a loli genocide, picking up loli pawns and giving them 1 stars and bad reviews.
>all these manlets
When will they learn
That clarifies things, thanks
No, the gear comes from the chests
M-me too, what level are you/ your pawn?
>servers are shit
>half the time I see "Accessing Servers" I get to wait 2+ minutes for it to tell me it's not working
yeah I figured that out about 15 seconds in
fucking ridiculous. Why can't you just cancel this shit?
Are there more main quest hubs other than Gran Soren and the starting village?
I'm level 40 and I'm already at the last boss. Feels like I've missed something...
I still have the "Ambushed!"-quest where someone is supposed to ambush me in Gran Soren or something, will it unlock more quests if I finish it? Thought it was just the same as one of those random big monsters who ambushes you, just with bandits.
Why is it so perfect
I'm on a quest called
The Final Battle, so I looked it up on wiki and it said something about it being the final quest, so I got scared and turned the game off and restarted so I didn't have to engage.
Pawn decided to fuck off somewhere else
It works sometimes. But when it's not working I can tell immediately and can't cancel the loading. I want to use online when it works and it sucks dick that I can't tell it to quit trying in the instances that it temporarily doesn't. Random 2+ minute loading screens are fucking retarded.
They said it might take a few hours to fully go into effect but it was a serverside issue that they've fixed. They're also not sure what was causing it, which makes me wonder how they fixed it.
>levitation makes you fall slowly for a moment
>when it ends you regain the momentum and get fall damage anyway
I know its because fall damage is calculated by using the time you spent in air instead of height
My pawn is struggling too in post game, but that's just something I caused myself, since I refuse her to use shitty looking high end armours. Weapons are fine, but she's too fragile as fighter.
>Stay a decent distance away.
>>Only hit 1-3 times, then back the fuck off.
holy shit, how did no one called you out on being shit
fighter and warrior have escape attacks that give you invincibility frames, fighter has a shield with perfect block so you can stay in their faces 100% of the time, assassin has counters, dodges, and can use shields, mystic knight is ALL ABOUT blocking shit perfectly.
only if you're strider/ranger you have an excuse to back off, to use your bow, all the other melee classes can stay in the enemies face at all times no problem
>living life as god
>running around invisible clipping through things
>NPCs still say "hello"
>I can pick up NPCs and throw them off things
>sword kills NPCs now too
>proceed to kill everybody I possibly can
>ending of newgame+
was a funny moment. I had fun. I liked this game.
Don't jump. Sprint at the edge, then use Helm Splitter as you're about to hit it. The momentum will carry you over.
If you jump before using Helm Splitter you'll still take fall damage.
Aha, so maybe I am where I should be level-wise?
Then maybe I should go and kill him and proceed to do whatever happens after.
Because if I understand it right, the world is not much bigger than Cassardis, Gran Soren, that tower with the gryphon, the castle where you rescue Queen Bitch, Shadow Fort, the castle with the female bandits and wherever you go for the last boss?
Apart from DLC content, that is.

IS THERE ANYONE IN THIS GAME THAT DOESN'T INSTANTLY WANT THE ARISEN'S DICK?
>IS THERE ANYONE IN THIS GAME THAT DOESN'T INSTANTLY WANT THE ARISEN'S DICK?
Literally no, the game wants you to romance someone because it's part of the main story and so you can romance damn near any NPC.
If I gave Caxton the gold idol, will he still sell all that junk in NG+?

>business is trying to make a profit
That's so bad. If you even think any company has the customers in mind first you're an absolute moron. Might as well never buy a game again.
the fact that people use arguments like this to say DD or Bloodborne sold badly is mind boggling to me. Are you actually retarded? Do you not understand what a niche is or how profit works?
Because it's an outright lie. They did payed modding for simple greed and just made up the terms "greedy long" "greedy short" on the spot. Modders getting a 25% cut should be an instant red flag if you aren't a complete retard.
Thanks for the rating bruh now my pawnfu average is 4*
Everyone, I'd like you to meet my daughter. Please be nice to her, she is a bit shy!
>business is trying to make a profit
Greedy Long is from the whole payed modding controversy you dumbass.
Also keep defending their shitty customer service.
this game has a retarded amount of walking
needs horses or something, fuck those ferry stones i've only got like six of them and you actually have to go to the place you want to ferry to if you wanna ferry to it to begin with
im dropping this for a while
>thinking you actually own a game if you don't buy it on Steam
Super retard. In every instance that you buy a game, physical or not, console or not, you are actually purchasing a license giving you permission to play the game. With the widespread advent of the internet, any game these days can be taken away from you if the publisher or service provider really wanted to.
>muh bbb is bad cause i say so argument
>muh who cares about consumer rights
>muh who cares about consumers
>muh who cares about customer service
>muh who cares about self respect

This is how retarded you are.
impregnating your pawn transfers your soul to them
its how arisen keep on living forever
Question: Why does every character building guide go from 10-100 and then 101-200?
I get that the stat increases per level per vocation change at 100, but what's going on with the first 10 levels? Nobody ever mentions them. Also I stayed strider until almost like 20 I think, did I fuck myself?
Kind of confused how this shit works.
As advance payment for advice, have an action shot of my Arisen strangling a lucky goblin with her thighs while she stabs him in the face.
>See a camp with a cyclops and a thief in
>Get ready to fight
>Go down there
>They don't start attacking me
>Cyclops is just chilling
10 is the highest stat gains. nobody mentions them because you can't switch vocation before lvl 10 so it's determined by your starting one.
Don't worry about min maxing ever and just focus on getting skill/augments you like. Gear too obviously.
"beating the final boss"for the first time
I don't like this one bit.
I took the screenshot the moment I threw Rook. Weight isn't even an issue in this game.
You can't change vocations in the first 10 levels. You start fighter if you want strength gains, mage if you want magic gains, strider if you don't want to jump through hoops to get the rusted bow later.
They change places depending on the situation but overall this is how I rate them based on fun. They're all fun though.
Shit would only be reasonable if you were paying for physical copies of the game. Of course you aren't buying the whole fucking IP. You're buying a physical COPY of the game. But Steam is digital sales and notorious for shitty customer service and they can lock you out of your library for whatever reason. Intentionally or unintentionally, if this happened the problem wouldn't be resolved in a timely manner since Steam only has like 3 employees or some shit. That and they don't give a shit.
Just stop defending Steam already you shill.
>pawns in the rift at the level the player should be in post game
>wearing shitty armor from the beginning of the game
Stop this. Even if it's 3 star it's still shit especially post game and BBI introduce ranks beyond 3 star gear. I'm hiring every pawn like this and sending them away with 1 star.
I'm getting dog piled every fight and I hate trying to keep the retard squad alive.
Rate my Arisen (left) and Pawn.
I'm about to go fight the dragon with a level 1 ranger so i can kill the dragon with it and give the weapon to my pawn (make him look more attractive to getting hired)
Am I fucking up?
Post favorite broken skills/setups.
Every time. You're so predictable. Can't argue? Just call someone names. "Poopie head", "fatty", yeah surely that will work! Like i said. I'd have bought the game if Crapcum had just released it on PC by themselves without having to rely on Stream-ingshit.
Just so you know the BBB gave ASUS an A+ rating. If there is one company that deserves an F it's them. This is not the only example of shitty customer service getting good ratings. The BBB's ratings are pretty much meaningless.
As far as comparing EA to Valve, EA did have a return policy years before Valve ever implemented one. And it's rather easy to use.
Well, I guess I'll just shove some shrooms into Selene's throat.
I know being oxygen deprived leads to bad decisions, but was the lashing part really necessary? A stay in the dungeons should've been punishment enough.
Anyone else having trouble connecting to the servers on 360? Were they taken down or something?

How are you even that low of a level, I'm 52 and I'm just getting done assisting the she-goat. I've been exploring BBI too.
So I take it Cashcom couldn't make the Pawn rental rewards they fucked up retroactive? Cause I gave a lot of stuff to friends, goddamn shame that's just lost on a count of incompetence.
At least this is indicative of the fact that Japanese companies still put less time and effort into PC ports, since the PS3 version never had this issue at launch. Shit was pretty much rock solid out of the box, whereas here we get a pretty significant fuck up right out of the gate. Solid framerate is fantastic, but it's not fucking difficult to get solid framerate on a 2012 game that looked only above average at the time anyway.
They were working just fine yesterday, I don't know what the deal is. Every time I walk near a rift stone or around Gran Soren I get a prompt that pops up saying that it's having a problem connecting to the Dragon's Dogma servers or whatever and to try again later.
>mfw getting this in BBI
SOMEONE HELP THIS MAN!!
I don't know much but from what I've been told you should still be good.
Is Dagger + Shield the most fun shit ever? Because it feels so
I'm level 50 and this place is tearing my asshole a new one
You travel with a party of up to 4
You create one of your followers in a character creator, then you can hire two other followers that other people have made, and people can hire yours.
There's no actual bro-op/PVP, sadly. For that we'll have to wait on DD2 or a DD:Online localization.
Is there ever going to be a GOG release for Dragon's Dogma?
I'd always meant to upgrade my Xbox copy to Dark Arisen but never got around to it. I'd like to get it for PC but holy shit I just really hate Steam.
If I talk about it, I will shit up entire thread. It happened twice already.
One guy was persistently one hit killing my entire party, so I just went on to level up and overshot it.
I know, but how bad is it? And what are ma options?
If you want to be a Mystic Knight you should start with Fighter for the first 10 levels to get high HP and play until your class level is 5 so you you can get the skill that lets you carry more, then go Mystic Knight for the rest of the game

I can imagine ASUS wouldn't have as much complaints against them because most normalfags don't even know what parts their using. It's also possible they have less complaints since they fuck up less then having less people complain about their shitty service.
Steam is extremely well known and popular though. And purchases from steam is more frequent. Both have no excuse for having shitty service.
>start up game
>check item storage
>have superb DLC armor that beats everything else in the first several hours of the game, for free and ready to use
T-thanks, I guess.
The eternal ferrystone is cool though.
So appearently the Lost and Found quests was timed or I progressed to far somewhere else and now it's failed?
Is there a way to redo it? Or will I have to live with that red mark of shame on my quest log forever?
Do any of the escort missions open up extra quests, extra shop inventory or give really good items or anything? They all look like a pain in the ass and I don't have any portcrystals yet.
The last games I bought were on PS3. And most of the games I play on PC are just emulators of PS2, DOS, and GC shit. Like fuck I'm going to play DD on PS3 when there's a version out with a better resolution.
Well, my shit is weak. Will I have to do all the quests I have done over?
Though I dont want to go through the pawn creation again, I am pretty satisfied with it. My main char is shit though.
>First look at what pawns i can pick
>Surrounded by little girls
Expansion area. Bitterblack Ise. There's a women at Cassardis who only appears at night. She takes you there. It's harder than anything in the main game but it's perfect for Magic Archer.
>Currency in certain shops
Is there good shit there? I've never spent any of my right crystals and only ever hire free pawns. The pawns already make the game really easy, I don't know why I would want higher level pawns. Though right now I'm only about level 40.
Played this on ps3 years ago and destroyed everything post and endgame as all different melee types (strider/assassin/fighter/warrior) was fun as fuck
bought the pc ver, went mystic knight, was awful, changed to magic archer, was boring as fuck
deleting char and starting from scratch as a warrior. The raw power with big ass 2handers is too fun, the arc of might or whatever type moves are just too valuable. Nothing is better than just getting in there and wrecking shit as a warrior
fuck casters/pure bow/magic shiet
Well it's sometimes easier to hire slightly higher level pawns at low level unless you want to be recruiting new ones all the time.
I have somekind of memory of reading on the wiki that having Pawns either too low or too high can affect your EXP negatively, but don't quote me on that.
It's true on higher leveled Pawns at least.
When the game restarts due to difficulty changing, your character and pawn are kept the same. You have the option to change them when the character creator pops up but they should look like how you left them.
This nude mod is making the trips at night more interesting
Crisp ass screenies are so nice.
How to get good at melee:
>Learn to block.
>Only use your basic attacks when you're low on stamina.
>Move a lot!
>Jumping attacks help you dodge.
is there like a checklist/recommendation of things to complete before finishing the main story line and going to post game?
I wouldn't worry too much about trying to complete BBI all at once. It's best to just chip away at it a bit at a time over the course of the game as you level up past 60 or so.
