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.

>pawn hiring more or less works now edition
Might take 12-24 hours for trades to work properly, people are getting rocks and/or missing riftbux because the system got flooded after the fix and triggered an anti-dupe/mule system.
What does shadow banned mean? Also where are you getting this info? This was pulled from the community FAQ.
>Q) Does the game support modding? Any plans to integrate with Steam Workshop?
"A) Dragon’s Dogma does not officially provide mod functionality nor tools to enable community mods."
>Q) What’s Capcom’s stance on fan-made mods?
"A) We won’t stop modders from tinkering around with the Steamworks edition of the game. The act of modding Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and use of modded content is not officially warranted or supported by Capcom. Play at your own risk. "
Utilitarian/challenger for sorc pawn, yes?
stop making me want to get that shader
I already have trouble running smooth 60 fps
apparently you don't get RC from getting pawn hired & the gift is a rock
only heard this here though
Any time your pawn is hired it will return 0 RC and rocks as gifts. Cheating items into the game and modifying stats will give you this ban. Also dealing impossible amounts of damage to the Ur-Dragon will as well. Cheaters on PS3/360 found this out.
It's not fixed completely. I haven't gotten notifications either, but I know I've gotten rents from some screenshots the other night.
>What does shadow banned mean?
There's two kinds of "banning" from the game.
One is a trade-ban, which is what everyone is tripping about now. If the system gets flooded with too many rent returns by/for a single account that account gets flagged for potential duping/muling and has rent returns disabled for a day.
Two is a pawn-ban, this means you did something stupid like upload a clearly hacked pawn and Capcom pulled it from the rift.
Basically the only kind of "banning" that happens in this game involves the pawn rift, Capcom doesn't care if you're blaring INTO FREE or not.
>apparently you don't get RC from getting pawn hired & the gift is a rock only heard this here though
One person in the last thread didn't even mod the game and this happened to him. This may likely be turning out to be a server issue rather than them banning anyone. According to the FAQ though, they won't stop people from modding the game.
So, does this mean i can just cope and drop save files in the directory for multiple simultaneous characters and playthroughs?
>pawns are being wrecked left and right by gazer
>riftslut wont cast high voidspell
>finally only my main pawn left
>turns into stone right before I deliver the final blow
>tfw my pawn is now 3 levels behind
Not at all. I get a 5fps drop at most, game runs steady at around 50 fps, 60 always indoors.
It's worth it trust me.
This is a great feeling. My first rents.
The previous ones seem to have been lost forever though. ;_;
>Basically the only kind of "banning" that happens in this game involves the pawn rift, Capcom doesn't care if you're blaring INTO FREE or not.
What about cheating Art of Metamorphosis into the game? I've been wanting to use cheat engine, but I've been worried that would get flagged.
Your pawn might get a bit screwy though as you end up overwriting your old pawn when you rest at an inn but still recieve its outstanding rents on your new pawn.
Never saw anything bad come of it on console, but you might suddenly recieve extra RC on your "new" save game and a flood of monster/quest knowledge.
better safe than sorry
what the fuck are they thinking if it's real, how is getting no RC or gifts going to stop someone that already cheated items into the game, lmao
are you using the brown & bloom one?
or a different one?
What's the point farming all the bitterblack gear/items after you've killed Daimon? What's the use of all the gear, is it just farming to farm more? I don't see the point in all the RNG and so many random items when the game is already over
Is there a limit to how many notice board quests you can accept at a time?
Do notice board quests get locked out just like some sidequests?
Is there a point in doing all the notice board escort quests?
Tfw all these pawns with fucking shit inclinations. Takes like minutes to sift through all the garbage only to find out they're all garbage and start the search again
Should be fine, it's an in-game thing that's completely legitimate. Can't see why you'd get affected by having the exact same thing I just purchased last night.
Though there's work-arounds if you're really worried, like swapping to Hard mode then going back to Normal so you reset your quests (including character creation).
What are good locations to place Portcrystals?
>people are getting rocks and/or missing riftbux because the system got flooded after the fix and triggered an anti-dupe/mule system.
All that RC and the gifts are gone for good then, that sucks.
Recently updated her gear, around level 33 or so now.
Steam ID: Ruskia
>All that RC and the gifts are gone for good then, that sucks.
The rift system had hiccups on console before, and eventually everyone got their stuff. The scale on PC is of a higher magnitude though, so we'll have to wait and see.
Tfw no rift crystals despite getting rented and using the few that I had to purify BBI shit
>man. MK doesn't really do a lot of damage

And my sword is already ice enchanted so it's like 2x magic dmg.
Magick Defense 168
Magick Defense 368
For an archer?
First has plenty of stamina and the best possible strength, but I'm kinda worried about leaving my base mdefense so low.
Both stat builds allow me to play the Vocations I want all the way to 200, so no worries about it feeling like a grind. I just want the most optimal stats for archery by the end.
>having your characters wear the same gear
>pawn comes back from rental
>get over 70k riftbux

>the rating is just 3* for everything
If you used my shitty pawn that much, why can't you be bothered to at least rate her?
the camp at devilfire grove
the exit of witchwood
the camp before moonsbit pass
these should give you short travel times to most quests and good monster spawn points like the drake or chimeras

What am I meant to do with these altar pieces?
Is there meant to be an altar for me to slot them onto? I thought there would be one in the grand chamber, but it's empty.
I'm already Very Heavy on everyone that can carry.
Am I even meant to be in these ruins without some sort of quest for it? I have the cyclops one, but that's it.
Devilfire Grove Camp
Fifth is your choice. Near the manse, witchwood front or rear entrance or the Abbey.
If you put a portcrystal up your butt and used a ferrystone, where would you end up?
>tfw my ugly muscle mage is getting rented
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE
Literally where you get your main pawn there is a NPC standing still here that only sell for RC
Main quest, when you are here on the Watergod place as quest you can get the rest
depends on whether it gets debuffs when you enhance it, like the rusty weapons you start with get poison at 2* and slow(topor) at 3* and the higher it goes the better the proc chance
if it gets debuffs then its about whether you want to trade the damage for the status, or you could attack till the status procs then switch back to a stronger weapon
Don't mind Rook there, he's just an honorary member.

Reposting my alt account, I'll put it in the DOC eventually.
isn't it like 30 on pc?
25-27.5 if you find a deal or some coupon (I think GMG has a 20% off sale)

#000026-7IQO7C-Y3PVK6 that's my voucer code, not sure if it'll work for you
20 if you use some sketchy aftermarket site

Is this better? She feels too boring with white skin, not sure why. I don't want to give her freckles because I plan on giving my pawn freckles.
That's a well made Orc
>tfw first Drake

So I can stone back and pop them in storage with no issues? I've found 4 so far.
Might be overleveling, because I didn't find it that difficult with only a party of 2.
I thought that orc looked familiar. He helped me reach the Greatwall Encampment a few minutes ago. Gonna see how he handles Gregory in just a little while.

>Hard as a warrior
I just killed a hydra at level 45 in Bitterblack and it was easy. Just grapple the heads, Warrior's cling attack actually does a lot of damage even though it looks shitty.
what the fuck does this mean? How can I get 0 RC?
>hey, those constant wolves everywhere are pretty annoying, right?
>what if we made them better at dodging, and also gave them a ranged attack?
wait until you get arc of obliteration
It means you actually got hired a bunch of times these past days.
So many times in fact, that when the system wanted to give you all your rewards, it triggered the flood detection.
Okay guys I need some help quick because I got to leave soon but I'm levelling assasin right now and I'm currently level 35 and at the quest The Final Battle but I'm feeling convinced on going warrior, would me being assasin for so long fuck it up? I want to change warrior because some of the armour is fucking sick and the dragon weapon given looks pretty based and I haven't found any good looking and viable assasin armour. So could it work?
At the end of the quest you're supposed to hand them over to an NPC immediately outside the dungeon.So storing them should be fine, but remember to withdraw them when you get the quest, or bring a Portcrystal with you.
check the wiki, it'll list if a weapon has a debuff
in game you can check by going to enhance and checking one of the levels, if you have at least one of the item needed to enhance it to that level, it'll tell you if it has a debuff
stuff like the anealed or golden weapons have oil(tarring) and silence respectively built in and i know from experience with the anealed daggers that even at 1* they have a decent proc chance
All these people who haven't had their pawn hired a single time makes me sad.
I wish someone would hire mine, too. I want at least some proof that it works.
>She asks me to fetch some water
>As I bring the water to her, I hear a guard next to me say ''Now this is strange.''
So I switched out Pummel Slash for Whirlwind to go with Exodus Slash and Corona Slash and went with 1) Scather 2) Utilitarian 3) Mitigator and holy shit do I like my pawn so much more now. Also did that escort to Blood Water beach and found that great chest piece for her by the 2 Cyclopes and a Steel Sword at the Tomb of the Unknown Traveler.
Holy fuck I'm finally done
Never again, hard mode is retarded and some side quests are bullshit
>nobody summons gaben
Nothing feels comfier than a knight crew, plus it actually works pretty well against Chimeras and such.
>a gorillion people added me since the game started
I'm gonna start deleting people because I'm starting to have too many friends
I'm using ReShade, I forget the pack, I think it's the one 'something something crushed blacks'.
I'm trying to take a screenshot but they all come out entirely black, or I otherwise can't find them. I'm a pirate. What do?
I had the same thing happen to me, although I used CE to do the Art of Metamorphosis thing once. I've only had one instance of 0RC/rock out of the four times my Pawn's been hired.
Can anyone who used cheat engine for art of metamorphosis that the pawn servers work fine for them and they aren't banned? No rocks?
it just never gets boring
>fight the dragon near the shadow fort

I'm sorry I ever doubted you bros this game is fucking amazing.
I'm doing the same but with
Witcher 3 OST.
>tfw Back On The Path starts exactly as I sit down on at the Knowledge Chair in the Union Inn in Gran Soren
I summoned some pawn that had the same vocation and level as me but slightly worse gear (griffin and I'm using chimera) and he also has a dragon's dogma but dragonforged. The thing is he outdamages me a bit. Is it because of the dragonforging, since my dragon's dogma isn't dragonforged?

I had a welcome surprise after exiting BBL
Arisen on the left. Really wishing I'd spent a little more time customizing faces.
Also I'm a dork and didn't realize pawns actually learn from your example. Doing a lot of catching up now.
Find a not half bad Caska clone in Everfall.
Wish i woulda thought of it. Almost want to think it was one of you fags who did it.
>see pawn rentals kinda sorta working
>rest at inn
>tfw no rentals
Would you hire?
Can anyone take her out for a spin?
>tfw I give honest and positive ratings
>wish there was a feature to leave a proper note
Though it's probably for the best. I don't know how my self esteem would handle a mean adolescent calling my pawn gay.
i love this game and I don't even care if pawn rewards are busted
who gives a fug about rift crystals? end-game minmaxers?
go get gryphic victory from berne and go full PALADIN
everything in BBI has huge mag defense
holy is what you want there
So once you get the true ending is the epilogue playable or do I have to start NG+
>returns start working for me
>only one I got is my friend's test rental
>Honestly the game would have been better if it was nothing but dungeon crawling
I wouldn't go that far because I enjoy the open world a lot but it would've been a nice to have a couple more dungeons to play through.
I think I saw your pawn walking around the other day.
I take pictures of all the cosplay pawns I run into.
>tfw some faggot looks like me
So fellas, how pray-tell should I go about getting max damage for Magick Archer?
Is it worthwhile? Or should I just go grab Assassin & be done with it?
I've already blown around 23 levels as a Strider.
I always give pawns I like a
pumpkinwith the note "all the best to you".
>first time going into BBI
>get to this big open area with a statue in the middle
>suddenly a Reaper-like figure spawns in
I just ran as fast as I could
>Rated 5 stars in everything
>only about 6k RC
>No items or comments
at least it finally worked, i guess
>So fellas, how pray-tell should I go about getting max damage for Magick Archer?
Mage to 10 then Sorc all the way to 200 is the "best" magarc build.
>Is it worthwhile? Or should I just go grab Assassin & be done with it?
Assassin is what I've been going through and honestly it feels more useful. Magarc seems FUN, but it doesn't seem as good since you can' aim your bow as precisely, plus I feel the autoaim abilities of magarc will get a bit boring after a while.
You used to could do this until Capcom left out Guts/Griffith armor because licensing. Felt kinda sad when I saw this name pop up, you can just CE the armor back into the game right? Right?
should i remove fracture dart from my strider pawn?
it does quite good damage and the pawns are good at aiming it, but it seems like in BBI he keeps getting stuck in loops of firing the stupid shit at the ceiling and doing nothing at all.
>hire a sorcerer

>Your follower has returned from assisting an Arisen in another realm!

Fuck, did I fuck up? Am I banned or something?
My stats are perfectly legit according to the stat planner.
I backed up my save before fucking with the stats, can I just revert?
>hiring finally works
>0 RC and a rock
So am I banned or is it still fucked? Only mod I have is the Into Free one.
>Felt kinda sad when I saw this name pop up, you can just CE the armor back into the game right? Right?
I get the feeling you already know this, but no. Everything has been taken out of the game except for the item IDs.
>mfw giving every pawn "Hello" regardless of their performance
Such a pointless message.
I just got confirmed that my pawn uses focused bolt too, if you hire him.
This is awesome as fuck, that teaching them works that well.
If anyone is intrested, check out number 93 on the sheet, lvl 33 mage called alatar
TODAY IS A GREAT DAY
Pawn comes back with 26k rift crystals.
Check Rank, 1352
Switch gender so I can try to dragonforge her gear
Kill one cursed dragon get 7 dragon forged items.
FUCK anons this is bliss
Is Warrior really bad or only bad on pawns since their timing sucks and they don't know when to land the big moves?
I switched to one from fighter for some extra health, with the intentions of becoming a strider/ranger later, but I've been finding warrior gameplay kind of fun.
I haven't played the game since shortly after console dark arisen came out so I'm not sure how class usefulness changes or how each class fares late game/BBI.
If anyone wants someone to tell their stories to I'm here and willing to listen and enjoy them.
>Your follower has returned from assisting an Arisen in another realm!

I wish my bro lived long enough for the arisen to rate him.
You're not using shader mods.

Can we go back to the broken servers? This is too much for my tiny little broken heart.
WE WENT FROM "MY PAWN ISN'T GETTING HIRED, IS THIS NORMAL?" TO "I'M GETTING 0RC AND A ROCK, IS THIS NORMAL?
Actually, I think he might have fucked up a bit. Pawn stats are one of those things you should never touch, because Capcom does check those. But as long as the values are still believable I don't see how they could notice anything.
What inclinations would be best in a Warrior pawn?
You only really need Acuity and Attunement, the rest are situational like boosted Core Skills or Solo Augments. If you stack too many augments it's pointless since augment modifiers cap out at 1.8x.
>I'm not sure how class usefulness changes
This was meant to say "I'm not sure how class usefulness changed between DD vanilla and dark arisen."
I played the original game multiple times but only one short playthrough of DA so I'm not sure if there was any class rebalancing.
I live up in the mountains in ramona. it's like a 30 min drive east from san diego.
They might have noticed that my pawn's stats changed. But frankly, how do they know I just didn't start a new save with a pawn that looks exactly identical?
This is convincing me it's still fucked and it's not me, at least.
Mitigator/Utilitarian. Fights everything, doesn't excessively pin/grapple unless it's something that needs its defenses removed. Slaps harpies out of the sky like he had a bow.
Can someone suggest some settings where night time doesn't look like complete ass? It happens with certain spell glows and other shadows as well.
Man, as a sorcerer, shutting down accumulated affinity points is always hilariously satisfying.
>blushing at you
Complete the "Witch Hunt" quest.
Yeah, that's why I said there shouldn't be any problems if the stats are believable. The only way they could notice is if you fucked something up, put a point or two in the wrong places, and ended up respeccing into something which does not fit any possible stat growth. Shouldn't be the case if you've been careful.
Anyone have a lvl 10 - 20 pawn on PC they would like hired? I don't mind the vocation.
Also I had no idea how big Madeline was until pic related. Like, damn.
Anyone have some cool mystic knight webms since you can now play them above 5 frames per second?

I've been posting about this since day 1 nigger
Is level 89 too high to be rented right now?
First time using the rift on PC and these three fuckers are the first things I see.
Here I was afraid that I would only ever encounter loli's and brown amazons.
Normal. Hard mode doubles the damage enemies do. That means that enemies that already a lot of damage to you all the way to enemies that only do half damge to you in one hit, will kill you in one hit.
Is there any non-obvious solution to this fight?
I mean he's a scumbag, but I don't see the point in killing him when he can barely lift his own sword.
Nah, game is is just bullshit like that. Might want to check the wiki side quest progression if you don't want to miss future quests.
Unfortunately, getting the Lost and Found quest cancelled locks out some content down he road. It's dumb. I think maybe they do it to force people into replays/new game+
>almost no hires
>somehow my pawn is ranked pretty high
You get the RC they've earned. no gift and 3 stars for all 3 categories.
I killed him at 40 and just barely made it. I'm also a shitter so take that into account.
>well glad I have this mage with me that can use spells to hurt them

I still don't understand
Purpuru, if you're still here/ still offering to rent my Pawn,
An Eliminator just sent Henriette into the Brine. I've already rehired her, but the next time I rest (probably in the next 30 minutes) you'll be able to see me in your list. I'm the one with the level 140-something (7 now) Sorcerer named Odette.
Do you guys like my arisen?
Fuck sorcerer though, I miss my ranger so much

Sorcerer is really boring, can I just switch to Assassin or similar now or would that make Grigori way too hard because no Dscp and no Vocation ranks?
My goodness, people were fucking up this hard? I mean it's really hard, I don't think I am banned
