You can change vocations at level 10 at the Gran Soren inn or BBI.
Character appearance can be changed later on.
You don't need pawns, but they help.

What's with all the pedophiles flocking to this game?
I have read the guides but i am still wondering what is the best path for a min maxing ranger.
Would going fighter until 10 / ranger and the assasin do?
There used to be a more indepth min maxin guide in the general with actual stats and what levels to change but i dont have it now
Same for pawn. I think it went fighter/ sorcerer and then mage at 100 for healslut
any help with this?
Charactor creator allows enough freedom for everyone to pick their fetishes. Almost feels like /tesg/ to me.
For first playthrough don't worry too much, min/maxing is aughtism for the experienced.
Though I will say for a Support Mage pawn there's no reason to start with a Fighter and it's stats are pretty well irrelevant.

Glad someone appreciates. I've tied the pastebin links to an account so I can update them without changing links. Hopefully no more changes so anyone can copy this OP and make new threads if I'm not around.
This topic recently popped up in /cgg/
Someone posted this:
Buff ass nigga talks about taking care of yourself and puts a pic of a scrawny looking sf4 tournament player as an example. They set up a grudge match and scrawny guy kicks his ass, and talks massive shit when he wins. Then the buff dude says it was unfaiir because charge characters are for people with low iq and tries to score pity points by saying scrawny guy called him a black dsp.
Sure ain't. Just need my balls to heal and it's go time.
As a bonus, might pick up some plates on the cheap next month. February is always best month for buying exercise anything.
You'll get there. Dogma surprisingly makes it difficult to make a non-clown-ass pawn with all their goofy hip/torso/face prefabs, but it's possible.
Berserk and Donte
when you visit the duke is that the end of the game?
also should i buy the house from the fat rich nobel or give the tennents 30k so they can find a new place to live?
Repostan in new thread
What is best class for causing mass chaos on the battlefield? Mystic Knight looks like a good choice, spamming Great Cannons and Stone Forest at higher levels
>when you visit the duke is that the end of the game?
I've played the game on Xbox but only about 20 hours in and I was the same vocation throughout.
If I get to level 10 as a Strider, then get to around level 20 as a Ranger, how strong would I be if I switched from Ranger to Sorcerer?
What factors into Magic Archer and Mystic Knights damage? Do they rely more on Physical or Magic damage?
So far I've leveled 1-11 Fighter and 12-16 Assassin and I want it to be round enough so I can do the wambo damage that Magic Archers are famous for.
>scrawny looking no lifer barely beats a dudebro nigger in a 10-8 fight
>somehow the dudebro nigger is the loser
The perma virgin won that battle, the nigger wins at life
You don't get to. You pay him 80k and the tennants are like "Oh thank you milord you're so great, here's a herb".
There's no player housing in the game. Your actual house that you own in Cassardis you can't even sleep in.
Visiting the Duke for the first time is ~1/4 to 1/3 through the game, depending on how much side fuckery you're up for.
You'll definitely want to evict the tennants. You'll make that money back immediately from Fournival
and save their worthless lives in the post-game.
I remember posting SOME pics but i never used a name, transferring my screenshots from ps3 to phone then pc just to shitpost about some muscle wizards loincloth was way too tedious for me, besides the fact i never had anyone elses opinion on my pawn beyond my irl friend saying she was fine looking and a solid 4 star on appearance, but that was my old save. I might load it up and try to pull out something for the general though.
You're going to spend all your time standing relatively still shooting fireballs at guys. If your idea of fun is making lots of inputs and mixing it up in close quarters you're going to fall asleep at your desk.
If you're the kind of person whose idea of a good time is a magnifying glass and an ant hill, caster is definitely the way to go.
MA is almost all Magic with the notable exception of Immolation, which scales with Strength. If you want to go the Immolation route, I'd look up a specific build for it.
MK mixes it up more. Great Cannon is where the 60/40 figure comes from, which is the approximate way of figuring its damage (you can look up more here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17Avxu-W6BCjDrglXtHg8Z3sKB_z_5tlWhV1Vmf_YWHw/edit#bookmark=id.xcntotwgg2h8 ). MKs get a boatload of Magic AND Physical skills, so it'll really boil down to how you want to play one.
>Mystic Knight sounds fun as shit
>realizing my character is too thin/small to properly utilize heavy armor and weapons to go full Paladin
>If you're the kind of person whose idea of a good time is a magnifying glass and an ant hill, caster is definitely the way to go.
That may be the best DD magic analogy I've ever read.

Half the fun of actually engaging with player created pawns is lost in offline mode
Did they remove the offline Ur-dragon in the PC version?
You can still get rewards for it, just not as many and not the entire loot table
With the new release on pc i hope they reset the cycle so it does not take five million years to chip him with a full strength build assassin flurry kissing him to death.
You can use them regardless of size bro, little loli warriors with swords bigger than them are a thing. If weight is a problem just get a tall buff mule to command to hold all your non curative shit.
>he chose Archer
Literally why? Assassin is more well rounded and even better with bows
Except cheating on online ur makes the whole thing feel a lot more pointless doesn't it? I'ts not so much the feeling of a whole multivere of arisens whittling a dead god to nothing but more of the feeling of trying to get some good hits in before some russian gets to him and blasts all his flesh off with a single flex of his ass cheeks.
Yeah because some of those skills look super fun. My character is broke though, been trying a bunch of shit (Magick Archer is turbo-fun) and I worry about muh damage based on stuff I've read in here
I also carry around WAY too many curatives
>fast attack that is like 270degrees
>super slow charge up attack
>charge up attack that is a bit faster
>2hit combo skill that launches enemies
that's all i remember
Some people do it, but not me, man. Too much aughtism.
You'll be doing a whole lot of both. Beeline for Clout and Ferocity to convert more thwaps to deaths.
Might have a damage cap though. Capcom was kinda hit-n-go with cheating on console, didn't really do much to prevent it but soon as it affected online they'd do something about it. Hacked pawns got yoinked, and it was possible to trainer your Arisen to be OP but it didn't present a problem somehow.
You have thwaps and you have the ability to use a single magnificent blow to punt some cunt facefirst into the ground with the forte of your sword
Slow as fuck though
Also expect to use tons of jump attacks
4x Sorcerers. Quad casting Grand Bolide gets you 60 meteors flying all over the place.
for (you) >>128301213
my nerdy looking Arisen
Don't mind the loli.
Go to the guy in yellow clothing next to the riftstone in the first encampment, he sells you an item called metamorphosis something or other for 5000...somethings, which lets you change your pawn and arisen once.
Jonathan in Encampment sells Art of Metamorphosis, which lets you change your Arisen and Pawn once from the main menu. In the post-game he sells it as a permanent option.
How do I make this the boss theme in my game??
Yes! Unless you pimp the shit out of your pawn or like farming mobs for gubbins, they have a small chance of dropping it (much smaller than gold, but the chance is higher in endgame/postgame)
It's mostly based on your equipment, but levelling sorceror a bit should help if you are worried about magick attack, mage is more on magic defence.
I also recommend looking around for crafting more potent curatives if it is nothing but harspud juices with you, otherwise stock up on mushrooms for stamina and empty bottles, then look around for a healing spring (it glows so it is noot particularly hard to miss, you even have to escort someone to it fairly early) and bottle that shit up, it's a decent early to mid game healing potion amd you can de rot any spoiled things with one. Just use it excessively if you have no healing pawn or are out of grey health.
I've been waiting. It's good to see you, /ddg/.
Would you recommend some efficient and fun Arisen - Main Pawn vocation combo?
>tfw that's the only info if you haven't found in the OP / the game's Wikia page / beginner guides
First time player with much more preference towards traditional RPGs instead of ARPG / hack & slash titles, though I always try to play what's the most fitting to the given game's fighting system.
Thanks in advance!
Hey guys I was just wondering if I can ever change my character again post intro.
After playing for a bit I made my delicious amazoness too manly, her shoulders look...off.
new player here, i read that if you want to train your pawn most efficiently you play as their vocation, how long should i do so, and would it be a problem if i wanted to be a warrior, since i dont want any magic stats
Battle-hardened loli pawn
It's spell syncing. When Sorcs each share the same spell, when one starts casting the shared spell the others start casting it too with cast speed bonuses for each Sorc casting.
Someone a thread or two ago asked for the Bossa Nova Coils of Light to replace the BBI entrance theme, here it is: https://mega.nz/#!HMsU1ARL!dD0wsglQ15Y2gZJ0vmo-piDqvX5_iPY5pmBV74p5Vbc
It doesn't loop. I don't know why, but you're probably never gonna hear the whole thing while savescumming. If someone knows how to fix it, I'll reupload.
Also, here's End of the Struggle/Imminent Triumph electric guitar replacement: https://mega.nz/#!aQt2USoQ!2fjpI8TlKdl2BaB1wzJQUCdWHd95UL-MhX8NsREcPx0
I think it does loop, no clue why.
Both files go in \nativePC\sound\stream\bgm\wave
Both of them are kinda loud, since I didn't bother adjusting the volume and the rest of the audio in the port is hella quiet for some reason, but one is a hype theme and the other is lobby music, so that shouldn't matter to anyone.
If your computer can handle it, it runs silky smooth.
will i be able to play at 4k downscaled to 1440p without dipping below 60?
No, you're right. I've been here too long answering the same questions all day. I need a break.
>have fun when this place dies again in 1 week.
It's like you've never been to any general on the board.
Don't ask questions that get asked a million times/are obvious/can be googled, and you won't get shit.
So this happened
Seems that capcom left the items in the game even though theres no shopkeeper in the caves anymore
You can still wear berserk armor and weapons using cheat engine
It's even worse when you're watching /v/ at the same time. This must be the gorillianth time I've posted that griffin webm.
It's tedious, but I love how much attention DD is finally getting. I'm so fucking hyped to play again at normal fps rates.
>Also, here's End of the Struggle/Imminent Triumph electric guitar replacement: https://mega.nz/#!aQt2USoQ!2fjpI8TlKdl2BaB1wzJQUCdWHd95UL-MhX8NsREcPx0
You're not the guy who posted it yesterday, are you? Because if you are, thank you.
>I think it does loop, no clue why.
If that was ripped from the game, it might still have its loop cues.
>You can still wear berserk armor and weapons using cheat engine
You can't, we've tried.
>You can't, we've tried.
THATS NOT FAIR
What's with the weird scaling/progression of enemies? I'm kicking ass when suddenly there's a huge spike at those crocodile men in the well, the bandits just before mistwood, and that fucking bandit rape cabin during yak escort. I need fucking enemy level indicators because this shit is annoying.
It's good mid game gear but that's about it. I know it's Guts and all but there's so much fun to be had with the other vocations that you're doing yourself a disservice by only playing one of them
Don't worry about it, there are other people around to answer shit, and despite all odds i'm having
fundoing so, so kick back and do whatever. Also, EVERYONE ON NG TALK TO THE CREEPY PEDOPHILE IN HIS STONEHENGE CAVE BEFORE YOU FIGHT THE DRAGON, HE GIVES YOU SOME NEAT SHIT. THERE ARE A PAIR OF COOL ASS DAGGERS AT THE TIP OF THE GIANT SPEAR. READ THE FUCKING OP. SINEW ALL DAY ERRYDAY. LOOK AROUND FOR SIDEQUESTS BEFORE YOU FINISH A MAIN ONE OR THEY WILL VANISH LIKE TEARS IN THE RAIN. CHANGING YOUR PS3S VIDEO SETTINGS WHILE BLIND IS EXACTLY AS HARD AS YOU THINK.
Yeah, I've been running on pure hype too. Should've gone to sleep an hour or two ago, but I keel reopening my tablet to check /ddg/.
I missed playing DD and talking shop. Excited for pawn trading again too, hoping I can transfer my pirate save but even if not I'll still be happy to start fresh rushing BBI with everyone else.
>>Don't ask questions in generals
No, actually, if you go back to what I said here >>128305854 it specifically states "Don't ask questions that get asked a million times/are obvious/can be googled". I'm sorry if your eyes weren't good enough to see it, but it's there in plain text.
No idea what you're talking about
The chest piece and arm armor were amazing to use all the way through endgame
And they can be pretty fashionable with a scarf
Its not about making a roleplaying guts character, the armor and weapons were really nice to use
Don't even be like that. If you'd follow the link to the last general and did a ctrl-f you'd find your questions answered a dozen times over.
So you got a bit of back talk with your answer? You'll live, no need to be a sour puss.
>fighting zombies or whatever in the everfall
>dude gets grappled
>oh ok I guess I'll grab the zombie that should get it off my pawn
>I fucking pick it up
>chuck that bitch off the ledge like a sack of bricks
I had no idea you could pick up zombies
I haven't played this in a long while, I was a Magic 3fps Knight. Never finished the game because I let friends borrow (and break) my PS3.
I like D&D Fighters (Offensive Sword n' Board).
Is there any way for them to be viable in this game?
I had a healer pawn but wanted to have them try something differently this time.
>if you really want a laugh try an escort quest.
One to the Shadow Fort or Blood Water Beach is best. Be sure to post greentext story about it too. This shit never gets old.
Don't worry, you're not alone. Though admittedly sorcerer was more of a side hobby for my arisen.
It doesn't loop because you have to set the File Size, Total Samples, LoopStart and LoopEnd in a separate file.
As for "quiet" audio. It's literally the exact same volume as the music from the PS3 and Xbox 360. Look, I've even provided a comparison, pic very much related. Xbox 360 on the left, PC on the right.
Forgot the picture.
If you can't crawl on it, you can grab it, you may need to stagger it first though.
>tfw chucking giant saurians off cliffs
That's a bummer, though I find it amusing that the other blatantly berserk-inspired elements are there, like the witch in the woods, the golems surrounding her house, the house itself, etc.
Very large chunks of the story and gameplay elements and aesthetics are direct homages to berserk, which the original creators of the games were massive fans of.
Get over it.
>Get over it.
What's to get over? You chucklefucks were the ones crying over removed armor pixels 3 seconds ago.
Gonna make a LvL 1 Hard mode character. Haven't played in years, since before DA released. Playing that good ol' leaked DDDA.
What am I in for? What vocation do you guys recommend? fighter for more health or mage/strider for out-of-one-hit-KO ranged?
I'm worse with brows
What about now?
Even if you haven't played in years, if you're a hard mode BBI veteran, it doesn't matter what vocation you pick, because all the attack patterns of everything will all come flooding back to you and you can succeed as anything.
Doing the same right now myself, chose mage to start just for shits and giggles.
It's not really clear what you're asking, exactly.
The Fighter vocation is the first sword-and-board vocation you get access to. Yes, it can be successful to use it offensively. There's no reason to suspect it couldn't be.
Assassin can also use sword and board, and is even more offensive with the best attack skills for sword in the game.
To be completely honest, I've never actually done a Hard playthrough, but I had something like 200+ hours on xblocks. I'm gonna get shrekt in one hit by globins for the first few hours huh?
Also, I guess there's no foreseeable addition of online to our pirated version right? This is usually 98% true for most pirated games, but I was wondering if there'd be some way around it for DD.
I see, thanks. I was just looking at augments that would be good for MK, but 2 of them, Clout from Warrior and Attunement from Mage, are from classes that I wasn't planning on playing.
What are the assassin's shield skills like? I never hear them being discussed unless someone is using daggers with shield.
Also, how easy would it be to make pic related?
Just get whatever sounds interesting and try it out. You can eventually learn every skill, you know.
As for early stuff, I remember the fighter sword skill you get that swings your sword straight up is really useful against flying monsters like harpies.
The one that makes you run forward and lunge with your sword will be top notch for the entire game, too.
There are some minor advantages to being taller and heavier, but those are mostly evident when you're the warrior vocation, and they are so minor that you won't really notice a difference between playing the smallest, lighest character, and the tallest, heaviest character.
Being smaller does have its own advantages, though, like better stamina regeneration rates I think, as well has being a lot harder to hit.
Really just make whatever character you want.
Honestly, man? It's kind of hard to tell you. Every vocation is great in their own way (sans Mage but that only applies to Arisen). The game is rather versatile and will allow you to hop between whatever combination of vocations you want and I would highly suggest trying them all out until you find the one you like the most. Don't fret about it, just explore the game and have fun like everyone else did.
Assassin shield skills aren't really much to write home about. They're mostly the same as fighter's, but there's also a buff for attack power, and a skill that uses an enemy's attack to launch you into the air to do some sick stunts or to reposition.
Fighter shield skills are the best, especially the "sheltered spike" skill, which is tons of damage while also defending yourself.
Quick, can't decide what I should roleplay as!
Kind old archmage teaching new apprentice
Grisled war veteran that keeps being followed around by an annoying teenage girl
Two kids from the same village going out on an adventure
red and blue oni
elvish slave and kind-hearted yet sadistic master
The possibilities for roleplay are endless, this is hard.
smaller doesn't really contribute(it makes your range on melees weapons shorter). but your weight effects stamina regen rates, as does your vocation. strider/ranger regen stamina the fastest.
P4G Doesn't count.
when you clear out that fort by killing the 3 (three) armoured cyplope what then happens to it? can I go back and see guards patrolling and stuff? is it a base now?
>finish off a difficult chimera encounter that snuck up on us with frigor
>triumphant battle over/quest complete as the ice towers into the air and the beast roars in death
>was my last bit of stamina, so I crumple with my hands on my knees
>pawn hops up onto my little cliff and pats me on the back
Only good feelings.
Hard mode isn't that hard if you're familiar with game mechanics. Everything you encounter early game has severe weaknesses that can be exploited to trivialize the encounter. You're also given a massive boost in cash drops and experience gains to facilitate constant gear and skill upgrades. Personally I can't even play on Normal anymore because it just feels patronizing.
If it's your first or second time playing though, definitely avoid it.
LITERALLY ZERO NEW WEBMS
JESUS CHRIST IF YOU DONT HAVE SHADOW PLAY JUST PIRATE FRAPS ALREADY
Thanks for the input. All Hybrid vocations captured my attention for my Arisen, though I could use some first-hand experience on how well the AI perform in different roles. That being said, I assume Strider and "their" hybrids are meant to be played by the PC to be truly efficient.
My impression is that Fighter-based classes would be advantageous for first run, and though I like to play fragile but powerful builds Mystic Knight seem to be a safer yet almost as versatile option as Assassin. Not to mention that having a Healer Main Pawn seem to be invaluable.
Thus I can't help but think to a Fighter/MK + Healer/Support Mage combo for the beginnings, be it a cliché or not. I can't tell if I would able to reliably defend the Healer as an Assassin or how good are Pawns at tanking, so that's why I asked for some other recommendations above.
Its 08, But I'm sure it's some meme I'm just newfagging.
better? tried to iron out some of that cavewoman forehead
I have a computer capable of doing such things well now, and yet I know I won't ever do it. Seems like annoying amounts of work.
Too bad, there have been some great moments so much.
>looks like someone out of code lyoko
I wasn't that guy, I was just expressing the fact that you made me snort milk out my nose.
No, anon. A fivehead is a forehead + 1. You should rent that space above her eyes out to an ad agency, she'd look good with a big Coca Cola advert plastered along her hairline.
what does the license to the hunt even do? it's going 'hey are you really sure you don't want it?' 'are you really really sure you don't?' 'are you REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY sure?'
i swear it does absolutely nothing
Each class plays to their own strengths, I suppose.
Warriors have highest base stagger and knock-down resistances which is handy early-game when every enemy attack can stagger you.
Fighters are great at blocking and countering. You can perfect block almost everything in the entire game provided you have the stamina to back it up.
Striders are built for scaling/grappling enemies. They climb monster faster and typically attack faster. They're typically the end-game cheese class with the two highest DPS abilities in the game.
Rangers are made for one thing only: Tenfold Flurry. They have a few other trick shots and are generally handy to have around, but at the end of the day you're just going to fall back on your main attack.
Mages are... well they're mages. They heal. They cast offensive spells. That's it. There's a staff in the game you can equip to pawns that make them revive after being K.Oed which is handy to have on a Mage pawn.
Sorcerers are mages but better. They don't heal, but they cast world-ender spells. Their magic scaling is way better, too.
Assassin is the glass canon of DD. It can switch between any combination of sword, bow, daggers and shield and has unique abilities for all of them. It has the highest strength gains in the game, but it gets piss-all returns for health and defenses. If you dodge good you won't get hit at all, but this is not advisable for first time players.
Mystic Knight is my personal favourite due to the insane scaling with some of its abilities (typically a 60/40 split of mag/str). The power to buff yourself and go charging into battle is fucking great.
Magick Archer is the most overpowered class when taking BBI into consideration. It has the best of both words: ridiculous spells that do astronomical amounts of damage as well as good physical attacks.
It's advised to play every vocation, I'm guessing what you really wanted was
10% discount in stores
One of your pawns has to cut the head that ate you off before you reach the stomach.
I feel like Vegeta would turn into a great ape if he saw that fucking forehead looming over the horizon.
A little short for my tastes, but it does hide the Texas head
What level should i be when leaving gransys? I just finished watching the duel and killing the griffin. 37 currently.
>Hadn't bought game until yesterday, but too busy to do anything with it
>Now the info about how to play early is gone
Anyone lend a hand?
I would just play it on the xbox, but my TV broke yesterday too
she does have a bit of a large jaw, but I can't see that being an easy fix
Noble District near the big portcullis gate into the Duke's Castle.
Fighter 1-10. After that mix it up as whatever you want but be sure to invest at least 50 or so levels into Sorcerer before level 100.
Hence a niche Augment. I only pick it up because I'm pedantic about being in any weight tier about Very Light.
pretty much, also the stamina augments kinda get meh after you get past level 60. pre 60 I would consider them good, but by the time you are 60, you have so many better augments that you can use.
>mfw goldforged Revenant Wail with Preemption, Vehemence and Clout
>mfw literally 1-shotting Condemned Gorecyclops' with Deathly Arrow
Wow, that was an impressive and unexpected remark, thanks for it! Based on this and what I gathered so far, I'd still stick to Mystic Knight + Healer combo. The ability to train your Pawn sounds very exciting, though I'm afraid I have to save it for later playthroughs. (Yes, I'm just playing safe here.)
Another feature I found really impressive is the char creation and that basically anything can be changed later. Now, I never play as a female but from what I see so far Dragon's Dogma has everything to be able to create visually interesting chars who fit in the game's world aesthetically.
Again, it's a cliché (big ass fighter + female healer) but I feel it definitely has potential in this game. (Plus I haven't found another combo that surely has much synergy while being able to reliably perform the basic duties of their class, but that's just probably me and my inexperience.)
Min-maxing isn't important, friend. End-game equipment makes up for any stat difference, save for complete retardation and going 1-200 as a Blue vocation and expecting decent damage output as a Red/Yellow.
No, I would suggest three things in regards to an end-game MK: Health, Stamina, decent magic damage. While going 51-100 as an MK isn't necessarily a 'bad' idea, it's more to do with stat growth diminishing post level 100. In those levels it's better to even out your specs and slot in about 25 levels of Warrior and Ranger.
r8 my generic shady bastard
I gave this game a serious chance. I liked the combat the graphics, but eventually gave up about 7 hours in (lvl 20 fighter).
Too many enemies have moves that can take 70-100% of your hp instantly, and every enemy is just a brick of hp. I'll maybe give it a retry if a mod that lowers enemy hp by 50-60% is made.
>tfw finally ddg is back
I fucking missed this general for fucking months while playing alone on my ps3
also what the fuck tons of people playing pirated version I am going to wait for the legit version because pawns make it worth while
anyone wanna be steam buddies so we can share pawns?
Stat gains diminish post level-100.
>Pawn training sounds exciting.
That's good to hear, it's a lengthy process but it's well worth it in my opinion. I would advise you read up on the pawn inclinations as that effects their behaviour a bit more than Foe Knowledge.
>Anything can be changed later.
You can purchase an item called Art of Metamorphosis from Jonathan in the Encampment north of Cassardis. This gives you a one-time change to all the features for your Arisen and Pawn. In the post-game you can then buy Secret of Metamorphosis which is a permanent version.
But it isn't. Why play 200 levels of something I don't want to play when I can just go about doing a balanced build and achieve literally the same thing. The only difference between a balance builds and a min-max build is 300 damage. It's negligible at best, friend.
Mix it up from there. As long as you grab a decent amount of levels from Sorcerer to augment you magic damage stat, you should be fine. Look up supporting Augments in the DD wiki, too.
Probably going to buy this on release but I'm curious what you anons don't like about the game? I mostly hear positive things so I'm curious about the negatives.
Wasn't sure whether to go with stubble or not
I don't know if i will buy it but maybe we should make a pastebin for ddg approved pawns or a steam group.
It's not out yet
No but really, my primary gripe probably would have been having to pause all the time to use items but IT'S FIXED NOW FUCK YES
I like how this game doesnt tell you how anything fucking works while also having a bunch of deep and complicated systems that you need to understand.
It told me how to turn on my lantern though. Awesome!
Do stat gains really matter that much? I've been playing magick archer, but it looks like the stats it gets aren't really that good.
Also, looking forward to proper graphics mods.
>Having to access the menu every time for items interrupting the flow of combat.
Oh wait, those problems are fixed now. Never mind.
If I get to level 10 as a Strider, then get to around level 20 as a Ranger, how strong would I be if I switched from Ranger to Sorcerer?
Would it be worth switching or should I just restart? I'm enjoying Ranger but I do really want to play Sorcerer again.
Different vocations give different stat bonuses upon level up, like warrior gives the most hp, assassin the most str, fighter is pretty balanced, mage on magic def, sorc on mag atk, str also balanced with a bit more on stamina and ranger with the highest stamina gain. And like >>128312475 said, equipment matters more. Even my solid assassin build, with high tier sorceror gear was an equal to my mostly sorceror pawn.
In the sense that you want to get through the base game to get the stats necessary to get end-game equipment. For instance, if you play as MA to 100, you're going to have really shitty stat growths. If you did, however, play as a Warrior (health + defence), Ranger (stamina) and a Sorcerer (magic damage + magic defence) you're going to have a much better spread. It's also advised to switch your vocations around so you can mix-and-match Augments.
Message them on PSN and you'll see.
I'm on the payment page but I need to know.
What I want to do in this game is play a sword and board senpai and have a loli mage companion. And together (just us two) fight Dragons n' shit. Can I do that?
This will decide whether or not I purchase the game.
I am back. Chadlay reporting for duty senpai.

>tfw my favorite community is back on /vg/ since the original ps3 deds died for a few months
You do not understand how happy I am for some adventuring / screenshots of fun times like we used to post hopefully the atmosphere remains somewhat the same
If you aren't enjoying the standard attacks you won't enjoy the class at all. Don't force the issue, lots of people dislike different classes.
Yes, you can do exactly that.
The combat takes a while to become truly cuhrayzee because you need to level up your vocations to get access to their more powerful and fun abilities.
Lots of people complain about damage sponges/being 1-shot by enemies but that's probably because they either wandered into an area they're not supposed to be in yet or they haven't been upgrading their gear. There are some difficulty spikes early on though for sure, but it levels out the further into the game you get.
Most of Capcom's standard pawns are pretty average, and your main pawn will start out as a retard until they start learning how to play the game (from you).
Story doesn't really pick up until you're 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the game.
I do worry how the massive influx of newfags would change the culture in here, but it's not as if there is a choice in the matter, and there are a lot of oldfags still about, and maybe more will crawl right back.
When you like playing games with slow deliberate animations for heavy weapons
The moment i played as warrior, i loved everything about it
If you want anime sword swinging with no weight behind it, change to another class like assassin
I wouldn't worry about it. At the end of the day, you've still got a really great game made even better by the improvements on PC. Even if the threads get a tad cancerous due to shit-posting (which might not happen), there will always be a good conversation to be had with someone.
Trying to decide what class to go with. I've played warrior and it got boring, i've also played MK which was ok. Was thinking magic archer, ranger, or assassin this time around. what do you guys think?
>I would advise you read up on the pawn inclinations
Thanks, I already did ("Pawn Training and Inclinations" from the OP). As my chars will be completely different, the Pawn won't able to learn that much anyway. Though a 2nd playthrough with a double Strider master - apprentice RP formation sounds promising.
>This gives you a one-time change to all the features for your Arisen and Pawn.
Wait, so Vocations / skills can be changed as many times as I want but looks are only once per playthrough?
Looks like some random South American soap opera hero.
I remember when everyone loved calling dragons dogma a berserk simulator, having fun swapping psn names to give another anon some pawn credits
Caring about how to improve your pawn instead of crying how useless the ai pawns are
RIP DD community. PC playerbase is cancer
If you like versatile special effects i would say magic archer, ranger for sniping shit while your pawns get torn to ribbons (unless you and your main pawn want to be sniper buddies) But i would say assassin is the most adaptable one, and doing a autonomy run is fuckin ace.
Vocations and skills can be changed at an Inn any time. Appearances can only be changed by either: using the one-time item "Art of Metamorphosis" and using it from the main menu, or using the permanent item "Secret of Metamorphosis" any time from the main menu.
Has anyone played dragons dogma online? I've been downloading it for 10+ hours with shitty proxies, I don't know why I'm doing this.
shield and daggers are doable, but they don't mesh well do to dagger playstyle encouraging dodging, rolling and crawling while the shield encourages reflects, turtling and BANG THE SHIELD SLOWLY
also not that annon, but Dire Gouge is god tier against bosses.
Daggers while not bad just don't really stand up to Sword. also you can use the same sword for MK which is the king of farming URDY
You can... but you said you want to try something different and so I gave you something different. Either way, you'll got your role now it's up to you to go out on your adventure!
is anyone elses 4th row of colors greyed out and unusable in the character creation? this picture calls for 4/4 on makeup. it's also not looking very accurate, will post screenshot of mine
see how the 4th row is all just grey shit? nothing changes when clicked
are there any classes that are completely unbalanced in one way or another? I don't want to play something that ends up being OP. Also, how hard do i need to try to optimize stat growth?
Does the game have cool armor sets? I haven't really seen many interesting ones.
>nameless armour looks sexy as hell
>terrible fucking stats
Armor like pic related. Cool face covering helmets are my fetish.
Yeah, I'm getting shit-stomped. I knew I was in for a ride when the fucking tutorial chimera gave me so much trouble. I really don't want to read the wiki and shit but it looks like I have no choice cause I have no idea what the fuck anything is.
There's a few kinda like that. Chimera armor and the BBI plate come to mind.
New colors, unlocked with RC. You earn RC by having people rent your pawn or as drops from endgame enemies.
assassin has amazing stam and str growth, but you want some hp from fighter or warrior
the good thing is that both fighter and warrior both have good str growth too
some places are just too hard
you can always run away because it's open world
What other vocations should I train in to get the best possible warrior in terms of damage?
Maybe it's just because I'm playing on a meh monitor from half a meter away and not on a really old and shitty TV from 2 meters away but damn it looks a lot more detailed than what I remember from the 360 version.
complete newfriend here, is it possible to play a "fast" mystic knight?
seems like all mk skills require charging/shield blocking which i do not find enjoyable.
i just want to be a paladin. magick archer right now and it's enjoyable but all i do is spam sunflare
also I really feel like i'm overleveling despite not doing many quests at all. already level 19 and i've just done the everfall quest and am now doing the quina/ tome quest.
is this normal?
dude me to, i got rocked. about to go back at level 19 though so it will be great to shitstomp them
Does someone want to do a trade for this game? I really want to play the non-piratefag version. I'm a poorfag though, so this is my only choice. I can trade you a steam account that has Grim Dawn and Guild Wars or an FFXIV heavensward account.. it has a max level Dark Knight on it.
I'll give my skype and my email in case anyone is interested sorry to shit up the thread.
