Farmland saga arc begins edition
>Tips for new players
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.

Can you only make one pawn? And will amazon have steam codes on release? I have this gift card sitting around that I could use.
>Go to Temple of the Water God on my Ranger
>Takes all of my stamina to take a lizard to 3/4th life
>Jump on my equal level Sorceror
>One High Levin takes the same monster down to half health and consumes only a fourth or fifth or so of my stamina
>Enter underground cavern on my Ranger
>A bunch of spooky skeletals spawn, along with two skeleton sorcerers.
>Meticulously pick off sorcerers, arrow spam and kite for a while to kill the skeletons
>Enter same cavern as my equal level Sorcerer
>Clear the room with one High Miasma
So does this gap ever bridge itself? I feel like my Sorcerer is leagues beyond my Ranger in power. They're two different saves so they're roughly equal in level (17ish). I don't know whats causing such a huge rift in damage, but its incredibly disconcerting.
Oh and for fun:
>Enter either situation on my equal level warrior save. Fireball from offscreen wipes out half my health. Turn to face sorcerer and the second sorcerer's fireball smacks off the other half.
>Waste of money, cheaper cards can do the same
Not with mods I'd wager. DD isn't terrifically optimized when it comes to that sort of thing.
Press the home key or open McFX.cfg to toggle AO in v2. For performance in v1/v2 you can disable the depthbuffercalc in Common.cfg for a few FPS if you don't want depth effects(AO/DOF). In v3 I think I have it turned off already.
Read v3's readme if you want to try that one, it's kind of what I'm using though I updated it a bit, I think I just made greens less green and added spherical tonemapping. v4 will include ENB but only if I can figure out how to isolate AO and get more performance, I'm sitting at a silky 53fps in combat which is
>At Level 43
>Half way done with the main quest
>Bored as fuck
Godamn,I mean I don't know what to really do, I almost want to just start over but I'll have to do that shitty escort quest and hundred other quests that I hate.
what the fuck is it about into free that's so magical
Yes, there's the postgame that takes place after you finish a big event in the story, and then after that there's a new area you can travel to that was added with Dark Arisen. It's pretty difficult.
As >>128624548 said though, you might have to restart tomorrow if you want to use the online features.
get excite for the boat arc afterward
>pawns that will no doubt already know how to play catch the deer
>It's going to unlock at midnight anon, I promise
Whoever told me this earlier, go jump off a bridge
Why do pawns say that Goblins are weak to fire and ice when they're equally weak to just about every other damage type? Why not "Goblins are Weak, Arisen, do whatever the fuck you want"?

Jesus Christ, I already know what I'm rolling on launch.
So I never played DA on consoles, if I wanted to get the Ring of Perseverance as soon as possible, could I just head right to it relatively early on, grab it, then come back to Gran Soren and go about the normal story or are you stuck on BBI until you finish it? Is this even a feasible thing to do relatively early in the game?
Hairstyle, hair colour, makeup, and skin at Grand Soren.
If you go back to the encampment a guy will sell you secret of metamorphosis, which opens the character creator again, full customization.
(I can't remember if you can change name/gender though)
Someone here knows if its possible to change Assigned skills with Cheat Engine?
I imagine that you could change skills on the fly then with Autohotkey thus having more skills avaialbe, I already have it so that every skill is just 1 button press instead of modifer+key. Now if we could make that
then we could have every skills there is for a weapon in combat.
I may be wrong so if someone else knows better, please correct me but I believe the Duskmoon Tower where the Ring is located is very very early into BBI. You may be able to get there at a low level to grab the ring.
>buying Ferrystones the entire time
>rummage around in storage
>3 hours in
>nothing new has happened
Whoever said NG+ was different is a liar
So i found the salvation robes and put em on thinking just maybe Elysion wouldn't notice me but, i guess i was hoping too much when i had 3 pawns not wearing the robes with me.
Then having to kill some defenseless shit otherwise mason would throw a fit.
Lucky i put up with your shit mason.
how many ks have you spent by now?
>I already have it so that every skill is just 1 button press instead of modifer+key
Huh, dunno why I didn't think of this. I went back to controller because using modifiers for skills was pissing me off but with AHK I could use my TERA keybinds for everything. That'd be nifty.
Not sure about your original question, but thanks for the idea anon.
>try the "last date modified" button on the spreadsheet
>it asks me for permission while mumbling something about "8ch's DDDA pawn list"
>even after accepting, it still does nothing
I'll just put today date manually.
A'ight, so here's the deal. You need to do three things:
>Get to Duskmoon Tower
>Get the key for the next area with the Warrior's Respite zone
>Get to Warrior's Respite and grab the Moonbeam Gem
First and last parts are easy peasy. It's getting the key that's rough.
So enter the first room of BBI, go ahead and run past everything and down into the courtyard. Death shows up. Run off to the right and follow the path to a door. Now you're in Duskmoon Tower.
Now the hard part. Somewhere down and to the right is another door, you'll be going in here to get the key. Enter, follow the path around and around sprinting past now much harder enemies until you get to the next door. Enter the gorecyclops room
You will want to enter the main chamber then run forward and start climbing up. At the very top is the key next to a chest. If you've been looting you may have found a wakestone, if so drop all the way down to your death, revive, and sprint out. Otherwise good luck climbing back down. Either way this part will likely take multiple tried.
Now back to Duskmoon, ahead and to the right should be a locked door. Open it and enter. From here walk straight forward and climb the stairs up towards the Warrior's Respite. Search around the Respite, it's a safe area, until you come across the Moonbeam Gem (I think it was near a desk among some clutter©]. Now head back to Duskmoon.
Go to your left until you reach another door that leads to two sealed doors. Open the one on your right, enjoy your ring.
For bow users I have a setup that uese their melee skills with 1 button and If I hold thumbbutton it switches to SecondaryBow mode, makeing Leftmouse shoot and those the same skill button from before into the secondary skills. I think this works well for shields too
Basicly removed 1 modifer
For mages I have 6 keybinds for every spell without releasing the modifer and then thumbutton is there to release it or change into aim mode when I hold it and then cast upon button release.
makes it much more fun cause I can aim everything with mouse and don't have this weird controller combinations I have to press.
I think Bow/Staff could be weird though, havnt tested that yet with either.
A lot of people have been calling "NG+" what should be known instead as "post-game".
Post-game is when everything gets crazy, for lack of a better vague term. It isn't an actual restart of the game and the genuine NG+ is just the same ol' thing.
Same, I was thinking about trying a sorcerer this time but I'll probably just end up as an assassin, fighter or strider again.
The huge spells are amazing but it just doesn't compare to the gameplay of the faster classes.
this is a standard thing that experienced players do, in fact you can get 2 or more ring by restarting on hard mode if you plan to play on hard mode. but you will probably be pretty lost if you don't know the layout of BBI
Oh man, thanks a bunch. I was trying to figure out how I needed to get there through the maps on the wiki and I didn't even know about the key I'd need to pick up.
Yeah, the maps help but I'm having a hard time visualizing where I'll need to go since I've obviously never seen it. So we'll see how well this goes.
>implying it's somehow not capable of running on everything
Some anon ran it on a Surface Pro getting consistent 30FPS at 720p, and yet another ran it in wine on a Celeron with 2GB of RAM a couple threads back. It ran like shit, but it ran
So I read that you're able to add augments from other vocations. My question is, when is the best time to gain ranks on other vocation?
For example, I plan on going with a fighter build, even though I'll only use my dp for fighter skills or other class augments, when I level up, I still inherit the level up stats of that particular vocation I'm currently on, right? So it would be useless to gain any levels as a mage or sorcerer due to their low stat growths and such.
Do I just have to wait until I'm max level?
Whenever you feel like it. Don't worry about the stats so much, it's not going to make any real difference. Minmaxing is for people who've played the game to death already and have nothing better to do.
If you want to meme-max, you'll either want to keep the augment grinding until you're level 200, or if you're truly aughtistic you can switch vocations every time you're about to level up, so the vocations still get XP but you only get the stat gainst from the "right" vocation.
Or, if you're not retarded, you can just grab your desired augments ASAP so you don't have to spend all game playing a class other than the one you want to play. The only "downside" to this is that your stats will probably end up a bit more balanced.
The item IDs and descriptions are still in the game, but they're not equippable items and as far as anyone knows the models and textures were removed, so you can't actually use them.
>Minmaxing is for people who've played the game to death already and have nothing better to do.
>Played the game to death on console
>Building for balanced Def/MDef
>Mix in Warrior for that sweet HP
>Stack Sanctuary on top of that
>Fuck offense it'll be fine enough
I WILL BE INVINCIBLE!
Minmaxing really is just for veterans who want to fuck around, it's truly unnecessary.
>pick pawn voice

>choose a voice
>go to edit details
>choose makeup option or anything that switches to close up of face
>hit the facial expressions button a few times and your character will speak
are you me? i've been spreadsheeting DEF builds for the last two days
honestly people are asking the wrong question. if you want to "succeed" in the game at launch, you should ask >HOW DO I MINMAX MY PAWN<, and now how do i minmax my character that no one will ever see
Playing how you want is doing it right. I guess if you want to autismally minmax then go for it, but I feel like some people are getting the impression that they have to when that's really not the case at all.
fwiw minmaxing pawn AI takes like a game's worth of training and good examples
if you play a bunch of shit classes that you don't intend to while ignoring your pawn's AI you will fail to minmax the only thing that is actually seen by other people
I really like playing warrior but I can't stand the retarded looking designs of all the swords.
Like everything except the standard two handed sword looks like absolute overdesigned garbage. I'd have loved to use Guts' sword but since they removed that it's not longer an option.
>all those artifacts
God damn, how did you consolefags deal with it when this general was active back in the day?
Those are not common. Waifufags will go out of their way to get them, but pretty much every set looks stylish and practical
>playing for first time as Strider
>climb on ogres back to stab it
>every set looks stylish and practical
>are you me? i've been spreadsheeting DEF builds for the last two days
Ha! I usually like to build more for defense in games anyhow, but when I found out character defenses count for double versus armor defenses I knew it was meant to be.
It's not perfect, but I came up with a simple L100 build that let me play a variety of classes I enjoy while providing juicy defensive stats:
>10 in Fighter
>20 in Sorcerer
>25 in Mystic Knight
>35 in Warrior
>3448 HP and 327 Def/MDef
I'm sure it could be optimized, this was just kind of slapped together.
>if you want to "succeed" in the game at launch, you should ask >HOW DO I MINMAX MY PAWN<
Agreed, and even that has more to do with incliniations training and skill selection than stats.
>I was told that armor in this game is legit authentic western armor

>God damn, how did you consolefags deal with it when this general was active back in the day?
We hated it.
Worst part was the game itself looked better, the screenshots were auto-compressed and you had to have a Facebook account to retrieve them.
Taking our own screenshots is the best unintended feature of the PC release.
We had to use bow tricks to make the photos not look like it was taken using a calculator.
Is this game actually fun? Or is it Vindictus with Dragon's Dogma mechanics? The mechanics look pretty solid and the graphics are nice but it looks like every other chink MMO with the endless grind
It plays just like dragons dogma apart from a pretty gay enrage mechanic for bosses
There is grind but if you're having fun killing shit it doesn't really matter.
Unlike Vindictus there's a massive overworld too, it's instanced to your party. You can still travel all over it though.
The parts that were hated were Facebook and the fact that the picture never looked as good as what you saw on screen.
>why bother after a certain point?
Personally I tended to take pictures of other people's pawns in action both as part of my own pawn shilling campaign and because it's kinda nifty when someone else takes a picture of your pawn.
I got tired of screenshotting my own characters pretty damn quick.
you start the game with 3 lift stones. you also get at least one in a chest in duskmoon. also you can repeat this methos by switching to hard mode and back to normal mode again.
but as anon said the only hard part ia surviving midnight helix.
Why the fuck is this guy even here. what the fuck.
This isn't my beloved you dumbass dragon.
Does the PC release have non-player owned pawns of all vocations? I need to summon male mages for how I want to play through the game. I can't have my main pawn be my mage because I make my pawn female so she can be Ogre bait, since losing my pawn in combat isn't a big deal.
>Vindictus with Dragon's Dogma mechanics?
>implying a full DD playthrough with BATTLE PILLAR KAROK would not be the greatest video game experience of all time
The purpose of a game is to beat it, the better you beat it, the more you have won. The correct way to play a game therefore is in the way that results in the most absolutely conclusive beating of said game, where nothing could have possible been done any better, a 'perfect score'.
The goal of good game design is to ensure the kind of experience that playing the game in that way accomplishes is enjoyable. If a person has to sacrifice something to play the game optimally, the design is bad.
DDO actually has an expanded character creator over the original
A few things determine how much damage you're dealing:
>How much attack or magic attack you have
>How well the move you're using scales with it
>How much defense the enemy you're fighting has towards the particular element or type of damage
Cutting off a suarian's tail will weaken it towards physical attacks as well.
>not SPIN SPIN SPIN or blinkspam
That said I would fucking LOVE throwing spears in Dragon's Dogma.
>mfw I found out throwing spears could set off enemy grenades midflight in Vindictus if you happen to line up a perfect shot.
I mean...I'm impressed, very impressed, someone took the time to code such a minute once in 50 blue moons detail, but I mean FUCKING HELL there is actually such a thing as overdevelopment.
you expect me to know that when most of the game is jap onry?
For what i understand of the opening cinematic:
>white dragon good
>gold dragon bad
>white dragon watches over humanity because ????
>white dragon wins, but injured, crashes to ground and can't move
>bunch of humans gather to pray around the white dragon, thanking him/praying for his health
>white dragon says 'now it is your turn to protect me' and gives all humans there the mark of the arisen
you play a lot later but from what i gather you just get marked as an Arisen if you're considered worthy to protect the dragon.
not really, all the steps bar the download can be done in under an hour, i made a guide
DDO's character creator has great quality of life features too
>preview with different outfits
>preview in different lighting conditions
>multiple saveslots for designs
Its all part of your score. You play a game to get the highest score. "score' has been abstracted out into many numerous different things these days, but its still there. You can take a snapshot of your current gamestate at any time, in any game, and analyze it, how good you are currently doing vs how good you could theoretically be doing is there, beneath the surface, maximizing this is the goal, it is the game itself, a game is something with rules to be beaten, a toy is something you just dick around with aimlessly for fun. Video games, not video toys anonymous.
>The goal of good game design is to ensure the kind of experience that playing the game in that way accomplishes is enjoyable. If a person has to sacrifice something to play the game optimally, the design is bad.
you know there are game theoretic problems without well-defined optimums right
like in a purely mathematical sense
what you are talking about is not even well-defined for all "games"
At first I didn't agree with you, but your second point is correct. I don't particularly care for minmaxing unless I plan for it, but the average gamer today couldn't beat the first level of Galaga. When I play stuff like Guild Wars 2 or Planetside, my jaw drops at how awful some people are at videogames. I don't even consider myself that skilled, but some of these people have been playing games longer than I, and they're still mediocre.
>You play a game to get the highest score. "score' has been abstracted out into many numerous different things these days, but its still there.

optimization is a form of mathematical modeling. there is no guarantee that a problem can be represented by optimization. it is pants-on-head to think that optimization is somehow fundamental in the expression of problems
i blame widespread misinterpretation of the von-neumann morgenstern theorem, and more generally the sick mathematical colloquialism of utilitarian ethics. i also blame anyone who thinks a neural net is "like" a brain
What you got against utilitarian ethics faggot
game-theoretic (competitive) problems have equillibriums, not optimums. there are multiple very different kinds of equillibriums depending on how you define it. whether or not a given equillibrium (e.g. nash) is "like" an optimum is an open epistemic question in game theory. more importantly, in many cases the intuitive definition of an equillibrium (again, nash) is not actually realizable (i.e. the game can never reach that equillibrum, see the work of eva tardos) a fucking rock paper scissors robot immediately calls into question what you're saying
optimums can also be unrealizable for more straightforward complexity reasons, or if your preference relation just isn't a fucking total order. a partial order on game states (i.e. there exist a pair of game states with no preference between them) IMMEDIATELY explodes the assumptions of VMN theory that allow for embedding in a utility calculus. all you need to break optimization is an economy with two non-fungible currencies
Goodnight /ddg/, When I wake in the morrow fun will have finally arrived
>if you could compare DD to a medieval country, what would it be?
Generic Fantasy Europe.
I don't think it's directly influenced by any actual country or specific era, just a vague mishmash.
I will give you a system of rules and I will tell you to optimize two distinct values. What do you do?
This example isn't as contrived as you think. Even if you give some kind of constraint relating the two bi-optimized values (e.g. minimize X while keeping Y within this range), such games are almost always in class NP or worse and so not actually optimizable by any physically realizable system for sufficiently large games.
>thats exactly what offline is
No, offline means not online. Like, playable without an actual internet connection.
Playing an MMO with pawns means you're playing solo, but it's still online.
Loading screens are still shit but it's not as bad. I tweaked ENB to only supply AO and lessened the FPS hit.
You're doing something wrong if a fireball does that much to your warrior. The main issue is that casters melt if anything that doesn't stagger easily gets close, or if they're low on stamina
ENB just fucks with vram, it doesn't matter what kind of drive you have.
And AO. But yeah webms don't capture the appeal and my screenshots don't have enough AA to look good.
The lack of the ability to arive at a single solution just means there are multiple optimal solutions. As long as there is no answer that is more optimized, then all the most optimized attempts are equally optimal.
Many games have unobtainable goals, the game is in getting the best result. You do this by trying to get the unobtainable goal even if you know you cant.
I cannot wait for player-made pawns to hire.
i swear 99% of offline pawns are some "sorcerer with guardian/nexus" bullshit.
either that or its a 4" min weight warrior wearing no armor besides a cape with ladder blade and medicant/utalitarian.
Oh man I completely forgot that escort quests from the quest board: A. Start automatically as soon as you accept them, B. Are awful because the person you're escorting sticks close to you even when you're fighting a fucking chimera, C. Aren't worth the meager reward and the headache
Just gonna skip these until I amass a ferrystone hoard.

Definitely new pawns.

The dolphin porn schoolproject. It really was just a stupid fan setting, I have a dedicated bare bones gaming partition so I'd have seen any new programs load up in the task manager.
>you can play an mmo offline
Something is telling me you haven't hosted your own DayZ server yet. Too bad, because it's fun to play with your dedicated group of friends while having total control of the server side.
Same here bruh. I asked a few days ago here if we can do this with CheatEngine already but it seems like not. If you ask me, it's only a matter of time before we can tweak them.
Very unlikely. AMD recently completed their long-awaited switch from Catalyst to a fully new system called Radeon Software. It's one of the biggest upgrade they've ever done in that area, their could be issues like this. Maybe send a bug report.
I highly recommend to use their Clean Uninstall Utility to be able to clear every remains of the previous drivers and Catalyst before installing Radeon Software. Plus avoid using programs like CCleaner, they tend to delete registry entries that's needed for RS.
score was a stopgap mechanic by devs from when devs couldn't think of a better way to make their games engaging enough to warrant replays
trying to talk about score in the context of modern gaming is meaningless
but you're obviously just trolling so i'm wasting my time
So Mystic Knights get better later down the line, right? I'm level 23 and it's ehhh. Part of it is that I need to get good at perfect blocks which I don't think I've pulled off even one yet. But the damage output of magic cannon and my mace is leaving a lot to be desired here.
I'm guessing it's a vocation that requires you to level lots of other vocations for their best augments.
>I highly recommend to use their Clean Uninstall Utility to be able to clear every remains of the previous drivers and Catalyst before installing Radeon Software.
The new Radeon Software I downloaded through the Catalyst auto-update, so hopefully it handled that for me since I can't find a trace of Catalyst anymore.
But definitely noted, I'll be keeping an eye on the new software in case of other new quirks. And maybe I will just head over to their site and let them know about the fan thing.
This is either pasta or a desperate plea for help
farmer must be the dream job for a lot of older mangaka.
You must be at max vocation level as well to get really juicy stuff.
But once it gets going - oh man
By the way, would my fighter pawn learn from me even if I use magic knight, but use the fighter skills?
protip if you want to have actual fun as mystic knight: fuck shield spells
use your shield for enchants, use shit like burst strike/the air strike/ great cannon/
once you level up the vocation a bit and have on the fly access to abyssal anguish/stone forest/any enchant you want/staff spells for ranged it's a great class.
its main problem is that its stat progression is rather shite. I'd start strider 1-10 then go ranger or assassin for a while so you get a good foundation of stamina/strength
im not a min max autist but if you're playing a melee mystic knight you really need more strength. MK gets like 2/level, which is the same as fucking mage/sorcerer I think
Fighter has some of the best augments in the game imo (sinew is a must have for me every time)
you probably aught to do warrior for 3 vocation levels for 10% more damage on basic attacks, then strider for 5 levels for 30% more damage on jumping attacks (something that I personally use alot)
there's more, go check the wiki.

>The lack of the ability to arive at a single solution just means there are multiple optimal solutions.
no. this is clearly not true in the case of a bi-optimization problem. if i tell you "minimize X" and "minimize Y" (i.e. A,B is a solution if there exists no A',B' such that A' <= A and B' <= B), then there may exist 2 solutions A,B and C,D such that the X-values A,C and the Y-values B,D are unconstrained (i.e. the independent values of X and Y may vary arbitrarily across the solution space). this means the solutions form a true two-dimensional partial order, and this invalidates the completeness axiom of the VMN theorem, which means you formally cannot represent the problem by "scoring the game states and increasing your score." actually this is very direct and i'm pulling in more bells and whistles than is necessary
note that this is very distinct from e.g. a typical hill climbing system with multiple hills of equal height, or a plateau or whatever. that's an unrelated problem, and that's what people usually mean when they talk about "optimization with multiple solutions." bi-optimization literally cannot be visualized as a singular space in that manner, that's the entire point of having two commodity dimensions
optimization spaces and hill climbing and all that are an incredibly useful mathematical tool, the basis of all AI research, etc. and it's important to be able to think that way. but there unambiguously exist simple games and problems for which singular optimization of a utility value can't represent the problem
don't use any of that shit besides for the eternal ferrystone for convenience
that's even a worse idea than using them, the monicle is worth like 320k.
i'd just discard them all.
Rangers are fuccbois regardless of size, though sorcs are a fuccboi that has ascended beyond a fuccboi. You can call this Super Fuccboi 2
what would you prefer? some ugly ass shitty weapons that you'll replace in a hour?
people like you are the reason every game has some stupid EXCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE pre-order bonus now
None of this things happened for a reason, and the reason is what I mentioned above. You can't even download Catalyst anymore from their website, it has been removed entirely. I'd still recommend a fresh install, but it's your call.
Too bad if you touch that last 0.5GB the whole card's access speed drowns to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. So technically you're right, but in practice it's worse than if it would have "only" 3.5 or 3GB VRAM.
>he's not playing a black Arisen
>he's main pawn is not a black female named MONICA
Not as old as some, but hello! I am back and READY TO ROCK
in 9 hours.
oh yeah not having that last portion of .5GB as the same speed would make it better. but most games I don't really notice a performance issue. if their is, it's more than likely my ancient CPU, the 2500K.
One of my favorite Warrior pawns.

I hope I'll manage to remake my old pawn and arisen...
I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT.
I CAN'T FUCKING SLEEP
I still can't decide whether I wanna remake him or Blue. I'll be difficult to remake either one from scratch, that's for sure.
I'm biased to say to remake Red
That said, I'm on the fence if I'm going to remake red head or Helena since I'm quite fond of that alt-account.
Definitely controller. I play with the UI off, so I need the vibration for spell level increases when I'm concentrating on what the enemy is doing.
Who else is played shcoolproject but still hyped as fuck for release?
I've spend most of the time on pirated version just dicking around, reminding myself mob spawn and chest locations, fucking with CE table, making sliders for arisens/pawns. Can't wait for 100% achievements rush one more time.
I say follow your
heart, my friend. It won't lead you astray.
To be honest, my choice of pawn will probably greatly influence my Arisen's vocation, but I'm thinking I might actually try something different this time and main sword/bow Assassin instead of Ranger, Warrior or Sorcerer.
>tfw seriously contemplating calling in sick tomorrow to keep playing DD
I reeeally shouldn't do it, but tomorrow would be an incredibly shitty day anyway.
There's an in-game method for editing your character's appearance. First, it's a one-time thing, then when you reach end-game you can get a version of the item that allows infinite recustomizations.
Dying to nash is a lot easier when your under leveled and geared. Not being able to repair equipment unless I'm at Majula and skipping optional stuff for safety makes her and defender/watcher a lot tougher than usual.
I couldn't force myself to play it slowly anyways. Having restarted 11 times now I can't imagine actually putting more than 4-5 hours in a run, it would make failure more painful.
I'm gonna monk the fuck out of Grigori
i have a rank 5 warrior, how long would it take me to hit rank 9?
also, i'm told that killing weak enemies is the best way to level vocations?
so, where would be the best place to level in early-mid game?
Mostly because there is no performance issues with 970 in like 99% of the games. Although you could make certain games eat more than 3.5G VRAM, they're a very specific and marginal cases. If you use the card at 1080p the odds is that you won't encounter with such issues at all, or maybe only years from now.
Anon recommended Bastion as a musthave augment for every character - it's a Rank 1 Warrior augment that reduces a fixed 50 (on Normal, 225 on Hard) DMG from any incoming physical attacks. It's DP cost is 900, so with unlocking the Warrior vocation it costs 1900 DP and it's widely useful everywhere.
Nope. I might be wrong, but I'm fairly sure it's simply an item you get from purifying cursed accessories on BBI. Lvl 1 accessories, I think?
Note: you don't need to be at end-game to enter BBI.
>creating a cheat for a feature already included.
Isn't character edit is a one-time option per playthrough? I mean Art of Metamorphosis doesn't restock as far as I know, so aside from the char creation you only have one shot to modify your char's looks. With this, you can do it whenever you want. Plus it applies to your main pawn too.
Hi, I'm new to DD and can't wait to play it in a few hours
I remember hearing you can have a waifu in this game but if you're not careful it ends up being an old fat guy. Can anyone give tips?
So how are you supposed to kill the horned bandit reasonably as a mage?
First char was a strider and that chump died so fucking fast
meanwhile all the charged fireballs in the world didn't bother this cunt
I didn't mention that as it's connected to another condition (finishing the story mode). Maybe I should have phrased my (now answered) question better, but the point remains the same: the aforementioned mod is far not the same as the already built-in feature.
Without it, you have only one extra shot to edit your char before finishing the story. With it, it's not restricted by any condition at all.
No, anon, your one and only waifu should be
Look at grills you like.
And like >>128637043 said.
I got pretty fucking good at making females after spending hours in dark souls. LIke I made a decent looking waifu in like 15 minutes in dragons dogma, a game I havent even played before.
It's the same as what you'd have achieved through playing the game, and with the amount of RC you can earn there's not really an issue with getting the one time use item.
Anyway as already stated, there was a simple CE table for this. No need for anything else.
>want to keep playing pirated version
>want to not waste anymore time playing a version where my saves are MOST LIKELY incompatabile
>just wokeup so i cant sleep for 8 hours
>have work in 16 hours
is this what suffering is like?
All you need to do is cast the
leave and come back at a higher levelspell
also, if you're playing a mage you need a fighter/warrior to keep mobs off you while you pelt their dicks with fireballs
What kind of shitty balance is that though? I Was even using the ring that upgrades your fireball TWO TIMES into grand fireball and was not making a dent in his health
meanwhile the cunt dies in a couple skullsplitters
>started playing on Sunday
>haven't even gotten around to doing Wyrm Hunt quests yet
>spent like 7 hours between the character editor and working on a ReShade preset
Everything went better than expected.
When I played DD back on the 3shitty, I remember reading about stat growths sometime after I had gotten my Mage/Sorcerer up to like level 40 or something, and basically found out that it was, like, objectively the worst way to build my character because of terrible HP growth or some shit. Never ended up beating the game, as I went full PC master race later that same year, so I never saw it really pan out to the disaster expected.
Anyways, with the PC release on the cusp of release, I'd like to ask -- is stat growth micromanagement ever make-or-break in this game? Which is to say, if I just use classes I think are
fun, am I going to end up with like no stamina or terribad HP or something, like I vaguely remember being the case if one uses Mage/Sorc to level up?
Basically I remember Strider being the almost-objective best class to powerlevel, due to its sheer balance of stat growths, but... I REALLY don't want to just keep playing the same class unendingly because of m-muh numbers.
skullspliter is one of the most op abilities in the game.
your strider was probably a higher level than your mage. 5~ levels make a big difference early on
anon i don't think you get it at all
you have a one-time you can do before post game. if someone wanted to edit their characters before post game and already spent 5k rift crystals on the metamorphosis (which is not a small amount of crystals when you're offline), why shouldn't they grab a trainer/ce to change their character how they like?
Face shapes are the last thing I work on
I prioritize my characters in this order :
hair (has to match the face)
then face shape.
Noses are more or less easy to pick out since a weird one will look off. Also check side profiles when picking noses.
Once everything is in place you pick the face shape. Make sure to keep in mind the jawline and cheekbones. Side profiles help here too. Keep in mind that the hair and face shape relation is fairly important as the cheekbones will alter the hair.
a-any /NEETs/ here? should I go to sleep now and wake up just before it unlocks or power through with hype?
Just play whatever. Your equipment matters way more than your base stats, and as long as you play around with vocations you will end up with a balanced base anyway. The only thing you shouldn't do is go warrior for 200 levels and then suddenly decide you wanted to be a spellcaster all along.
Yes, but they were tied to the same username.
I have no idea if Capcom will implement and authorization features in this port, but judging by how seriously they took modded pawns and such, I wouldn't be surprised if there were countermeasures.
It's absolutely utterly NOT necessary at ALL to min/max, you do it for autism after you don't have anything else to do in the game.
Getting augments and weapons are far more important.
So don't try to min/max on your first playthrough unless you really wanna do it just cause.
TL;DR be smart about vocation changes.
Generally, playing as Warrior, Ranger, Assassin or Sorcerer for 20 levels will pad out your stats nicely to help fill in any gaps. Warrior for +5 STR per level and decent defence gains, Ranger for +30 stam per level, Assassin for +6 STR per level and 27 stam at the cost of less defense, and Sorcerer for +5 magic attack/defense per level. Goldforging often covers for minor stat deficiencies but major ones WILL still be felt even with a full set of Goldforged armour and Goldforged weapons.
difference is like ~15% damage at level 200 between min-max and not.
as long as you dont level up all as a blue class for like 100 levels and decide you wanted a fighter all along you cant fuck up too much.
Mage has shitty growths all around (every class but mage/sorc gets 11 stat points and ~50 health/stam points, sorc gets 20 LESS health/stam but as a trade off gets an extra 2 stat points for boosted magic attack and defense growth, mage gets 20 LESS health/stam and fuck you)
That said, minmaxing is completely unnecessary and unless you completely build the wrong stat the entire game, any class will be playable, and even if you fuck up the classes you played the entire game will remain playble, you just won't be able to diversify
>Keep in mind that the hair and face shape relation is fairly important as the cheekbones will alter the hair.
I'll likely be stuck in cc for an hour.
gib delicious brown sliders
Go to sleep if you can and set your alarm clock to an hour before the unlock, so you have tome to get a shower and something to eat and drink. You'll be fully refreshed, nourished, and prepared to play the game all day and night without suffering from fatigue induced performance drops.
