time to fight grigs 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.

Asking here again, just need to know if MA will end up doing as much damage as MK without using Immolation? I like the range but I can't do any damage right now, up to Grig fight.
Is the Ranger class good for BBI in terms of ranged damage?
I have a new, not PS3 screenshot portrait, but I don't know if it's better because I can never get him to smile anymore.
It's like he's eternally listening to Dan say that they got brought back.
How do I make my main ranger pawn learn to use their bow skills more? I'm currently playing assassin, buit I'm switching to MK soon. Should I just use my bow as much as possible or what? Or do I have to modify their personality traits?

>Decide to make pawn ranger for a bit while doing NG+
>Not using its bow
>Take its daggers away
>Its still climbing on Cyclopes to punch the eye
On the one hand, I'm proud of its Strider teachings making it want to climb for weakspots, on the other, I want it to shoot stuff.
thanks bbi, i totally wanted two of the edgelord hideous boots
I want the patterened gambeson/immortal's helm, both me and my pawn are red classes. Do I just gotta keep purifying till I get it?
The dragon is tough but I know I can kill him, the problem is he fucks off and I can't find him anymore and I fail the quest after a few minutes.
>tfw lvl 43 and anons say this should be a cakewalk but I'm having trouble
Taking away a ranger's daggers is actually more counterproductive than leaving them equipped. Ranger pawns are gonna engage in melee combat eventually/inevitably and there's literally nothing you can do about it, so you might as well let them deal some good damage when they do.
On the other hand, you could give them some upgraded Rusted Daggers for delicious poison+torpor shenanigans whenever they melee something. It's like giving a Strider pawn a Rusted Bow.

Why do people farm this guy? Is it for the xp?
Don't forget to fill up your empty bottles whenever you visit a safe zone in BBI. All those Rotten Ambrosial Meats and Airtight Flasks you've been picking up? Stick the meat in the flask, pour the water into the flask and bam, no more rotten meat.

Hey I just started this gme and I made my guy and his waifu, but I already had a mage guy in my party, I got rid of him and now I want a strider but every pawn is fuking shit in the ghost realm place
can I make a 2nd guy or do I have to find one here?
>Your pawn waifu/husbando will never be a romance option
Did you pay attention to BBI's story at all? That's the kind of shit that happens when you lust after your pawn. Don't be another Daimon.
Nearly everything Ur drops looks like utter shit and yet autists have been farming him for those retarded masks since forever and then spamming screenshots of their shitty looking and shittily dressed Arisen + Pawns
Magick Rebalancer can stack up to 4 times (so four casts in a row) with a ~25% increase to your magick each cast. 4 casts doubles your magick, give or take. If you're in BBI, use Ricochet Hunter and watch Death melt in front of you. Pre-BBI you can pretty much use whatever you see fit
>postgame bluemoon tower Wyvern
>going to hunt it for loot
>it panics as I approach
>climb onto it

>I DON'T WANT TO DIE!
already know that dragons are Arisen who fail and die
Should I be feeling this bad?
Hint for new players: if you want your pawn to absolutely wreck shit, make it the same class as yourself. They can learn how to do all the advanced techniques a human player can like instant reset as an assassin etc but it's very unlikely they will do that being rented by other players if they are a different class.
>if you don't play on hard mode you're a shitter
>if you don't minmax you're a shitter
>minmaxing makes the game easier
that doesn't even make sense
if you want actual hard mode just level as an MA from 1
Small AutoHotkey script that improves the PC controls even more.
The hotkeys will work only if Dragon's Dogma window is active.
Control+Alt+F will enable borderless fullscreen for 1920x1080 screens
Control+M will minimize the window
F5 will save your game
M will open your map
C will open your equipment
J will open your quest log
Clicking the middle mouse button will send an F key press. Useful for archers.
Control+Q will quickly press A and D. Useful for breaking free from grabs.
She's pretty much the default option, but the general consensus is that she's a whore.
Not for trying to cheat on her husband, but for what she'll do later that night if you talk to her chambermaid.
>100% stagger/knockdown resistance
>can still be staggered/knocked down
Equipment for your Pawn and other vocations. There's also Dragon Forging.
BBI has this nasty damage minimum thing that the Grigori weapon is strong enough to surpass but your pawn will need a Ur-Dragon weapon or one of the Everfall merchant weapons to do anything.
If you're a dirty casual on normie mode you'll probably need to farm Urdie and sell the wakestones to afford even one of the weapons.
reminder that skull splitter negates fall damage

Couldn't you just go through a new game plus and get another Grigori weapon for your pawn? If you just bumrush the mainquest you can probably do it faster than waiting for Ur to go into grace, plus you'll get a better weapon from Grigori.
you know about how to exploit the godsbane, yeah?
Are you fighting from far range? I read on the wiki you have to be in some certain range. They kept flying off on me too, but when I tried to stay closer to them that seemed to stop it from happening.
Should i change my grill into a boy? is she that uguu? ;_;
Are you giving her daggers that are blatantly more powerful than her longbow? Ranger pawns will still go into melee if the daggers would be more effective, like using fire daggers on enemies weak to fire, or when pawn bestiary knowledge makes them want to climb on enemies.
She almost look like my pawn in DDON.
Keep her as grill, change her eyes its what making her hideous. Get something thinner, and possibly faint rosy cheeks.
Change the nose too, I think it might be the shadows at work but it looks weird.
so why does my sorc pawn constantly charge focused bolt but never actually fire it?
Let's say you walk into BBI at level 60 wielding a mid-game weapon.
Maybe you'll damage the earlier bosses and enemies so you can eventually whittle them down but because the weapon is weak as fuck you'll either tickle the final boss or do no damage.
You can do that too.
You can also be an asshole like me and walk into Ur-Dragon's room randomly, hit him once, then walk out with full abyssal, a silly mask, Warrior mace, and some holy daggers.

This is what I get for being too much of a faggot to ever friendlist people for their pawns.
Yeah, last night was my first time going to ur-dragon and it just happened to be during the grace period. Only took two high maelstroms to down him. Wasn't sure what was going on at the time.
>Spring water reconstitutes rotten food.

I am learning.
I don't hire lolis, shotas, or giant bearded warriors that someone made because they don't know how to make a masculine character any other way.
Everything else is fair game, even trhe intentionally silly looking/voiced ones.
Below Great Soren I ran into a giant of some sort, jumped into him and started bashing the back of his neck with the pommel of my warhammer doing barely chip damage. Was enough to drive him crazy tho and he fell to the floor below and while he laid on the floor I kept bashing him with the pommel till he was dead. Went up a level.
This game man.
Did your pawn die if it gives the "how did I perform" line?
>>Powder barrels can be used to blow all the rocks out of mining nodes.
please don't hate
i know i'm gonna hve to change his name at some point
You can search by rank and summon them.
They're lolis and girls in thongs.
I don't mean this as an insult, but those of us in /ddg/ with very high ranking pawns go onto multiple sites and show their pawns around until they get hires from a variety of sites.
Post Arisen and Pawn, please rate
>didn't bother with any of the dating shit
>end up with selene
People keep saying this and I don't see many loli's at all. We're talking about PC, right? Some people have also said there are a ton of brown girls, but all I see are a bunch of white women.
It doesn't, pay attention to the dialogue. Ashe was cursed and given his demonic form because he cursed the cycle when he found out that he had to either kill his former mentor OR sacrifice his lover/pawn.
My greatsword pops them out easy, but they go flying everywhere.
Hey, I'd prefer Selene to Aelinore.
I got Selene to max affinity first this time, and made sure to talk to her before I left, and still got Aelinore. I just wanted my beloved to understand my pawn's new position.

So.. after getting through the game, i got to say that the story was surprisingly decent in the end. But goddamn does it take long for it to pick up.

This thing is an oversight, right?
It's not supposed to be this strong, right?

I'm going to please that loli
That pawn is cute because it's jumping face first into a large boulder

man, I don't know.
If you're on kb/m, go into inventory, click on item, press number key (only supports 1-5). You'll see the number on top corner of icon. When you press it, it'll tell you the item is used.
I've read somepeople set up hotkeys on their controller somehow, but I'm using kb/m.
>Playing around in BBI
>Get a sword for my pawn that's twice as strong as the one she was already using
Feels good man
>no bonus effects
God damn it. It's better than nothing, I guess.
Other than tenfold flurry, what other bow skills are the best for a ranger Arisen?
I'm assuming morbidity works well with the skill that fires a poison arrow?
>tfw you will NEVER pleasure symone by eating her out
Degenerates like you belong on a cross
did i managed to fix her? Also, she's higher right now too. around 1.65
if not, JUST fuck my shit up

fucking love this game. also this "immortal helmet" thing is nuts, i have health regen now
I'm looking online and I can't find anything good. Everyone seems to differ. What's a good build for a Mystic Knight? I'm a level 13 Strider so far, but I want to play a Mystic Knight.
Is it just me or is the end-game kind of rushed?
I just did some main quests because I couldn't find any other quests, and suddenly I'm at Grigori
You'll have a lot of fun with the bigger gorecyclopses.
One of the guards in the intro that comes to Cassardis is black and the lady at the haircut place in Gran Soren is black too
>wearing full edgelord bbi armor like a turbopleb
the whole game is rushed anon, we got 30% of what they planned.
The game was supposed to end on the moon.
Speaking of which why don't we have anyone data mining through the files to see if they can dig up any remnants of the cut content?
Just committed sudoku. I don't want to delete my save because I like my characters, but I also want to start anew.
Is family sharing the only option?
Standard attacks will eat stamina if she isn't at the proper level to wield it. So if you see her tired or using mushrooms it's draining her stamina and she's too low level to use it without penalty
Great Gamble is fucking amazing against certain enemies, useless against others. You know those minotaur fuckers in BBL? Great Gamble their head and suddenly they aint so tough.
That's almost a full 100 levels below me. Wow.
Great Gamble's pretty
greatdespite the stamina cost and Endecad Shot is good for crowd control. In my opinion though, Just-released Reaper's Arrow > Great Gamble.
So apparently no one wants to hire Magnus, my sorcerer. I made him into Samson, a fighter. He's only got basic skills right now, rank 1. I'd appreciate anyone who would be willing to hire him.
My ID is putty_of_the_dead, my Steam name currently is Argel Tal. He's level 40, maybe 41. Utilitarian and Challenger are his inclinations.
well when does that bearded fuck start carrying new arms and armor then?

Uhh, did you just forget how I murdered the beast like a day ago, or how his death made the whole town collapse, brah?
Okay, so how exactly does the Grace phase on Ur work?
I don't wanna fuck this up.
are you on hard or something? idk, i got fucking lucky as FUCK with the RNG on BBI items
also, fucking striders.
>my pawn "I'll try spinning - that's a good trick!"
>mfw one shot with brain splitter
BBI's story was about an idiot who couldn't make a good decision to save his life, falling in love with his pawn was only an aspect of what happened, it's certainly not a warning to everyone else since nobody else gives a shit about the dragon they have to fight.
Why are people hating on loli pawns again?
Hard mode and I've been powerleveling with Pilgrim's Charms. Gotta hit 200 so I can play MK with m-muh min-maxed STR/MAG. I'm not worried about Alice though, she'll be pretty sturdy in all that lvl 3 gear.
Someone please hire my Sorcerer, I need some feedback. I know the weapon sucks but I have no riftbucks to purify Bitterblacks
What? Can you even cheat in this game? Let me reiterate.
The pawn sometimes comes back with a rock, three stars, no rc, etc. Not always. I'll even have results from people who used the pawn enough to net me a few thousand RC and such.
so his stock doesn't immediately change upon receiving the gold idol?
I try to keep her pure and properly dressed
Rest up, Cliftonia.
Slayed the dragon quite nicely. Hope that gave some good RC.

Well I know if it was all three stars and some RC, my pawn probably died at some point. It was the no RC, three stars, and a rock that's been confusing me.
Nah, wasn't aware you could convert.
mad hatter and vaiire rest up
knocked the shit out of daimon and some unfortunate bastards in the everfall, superb as always
Also, anyone wanna hire sahmed here? Level 58 strider
I need RC and am confident enough in my Pawn's abilities to finally whore the ugly bastard out. He's a 52 Warrior, Mitigator/Challenger/Utilitarian, all my best gear, Corona/Exodus/Indomitable, as far as I can tell he uses Indomitable when he should, but I'd be glad to get any feedback. Augments are Sinew, Ferocity, Eminence, Clout, Exhilaration, Vehemence. My Arisen is a Warrior too so he should be pretty decent as far as tactics are concerned.
His name is Wrex, my Steam is http://steamcommunity.com/id/hustle_bones/
>tfw grinding vocation to get Sorc augs and spells for MK
>People who desperately want their sorc pawn to be relevant. Literally less useful than a Warrior pawn. At least people who play Sorc themselves have room for a tank class in their party. No one wants a sorc that accomplishes fuck all.
I feel like I would've got a lot more hires when I was lower level when the system wasn't working. I've been playing a shitton continously since the game came out so I feel like I've probably outleveled most of the player base. FeelsBadMan
How many times are you going to repost this? It's kind of really sad. That's one, single person. That's a ridiculously hard stretch to try to generalize it to being every person who plays games on a PC don't you think?
>implying poor training is the pawn's fault and not their arisen's fault
In future, nobody should believe anyone who says that x vocation is never hired or not in demand. Anyone who says this is retarded.
Is it almost Ur-Dragon grace time? I fought gen 12 like 6 times now.
Archistaffs are stronger than regular staffs, anodyne scales like fresh dogshit, and voidspell. If your caster was worth a shit they'd just holy focus bolt things down anyway, or you'd know how to keep enemies off of your blues

>Just got home
>Wife needs the computer for a few minutes
Shit. Wouldn't be a problem normally except I don't trust Grace to last more than 73 seconds. Oh well, there will probably be another within the hour.
What determines what you're able to perfect block? I noticed that pretty much all of the eliminator's attacks are "unblockable"(as in they'll send you reeling) except for his headbutt and it has me wondering what determines that and if there's an augment or something that'll help.
>only got a Lambent Shield even though I got another kill
>2 pawns with buffs
>But I need the heals!
You don't bring Sorc for buffs, and Anodyne is the least of reasons to bring a Mage. In fact, if Mages came with Grapnel/Haildom/Spellscreen/Affinities and no Anodyne I'd be okay with that.
>not a single pawn hired
I thought you guys said people love mages...
Why does my pure healwaifu have the neck of an NFL linebacker?
>Increases your jump height by about 1.6x, looks pretty believable, and lets you explore more freely! Check out the video!
Oh shit, it finally dropped. Fuck yeah.
>lets you explore more freely
>completely breaks the game's tactics for jumps that you should only do in specific ways
waow ez mode get a load of this guy
There's a lot of competing pawns if you don't have friends who keep up with your leveling pace.
My character's level 32 and my pawn has been hired only 4 times since the start of the game. At least she got 4-star ratings for those times.
Why do guards just let naked lolis roam the streets?
I agree with you, it's still a cool addition for seasoned players to fuck around with though. Jumping and throwing shitty pawns would be about 6x more fun.
>that heatseeking dropkick
As a sorc/mage they're pretty easy for 80% of the fight since comestion stuns the shit out of them
Once they enrage its a complete crapshoot. If they target you with the dropkick you are fucking dead
Yeah I've been debating on dropping that actually. With the augment the timing is way too generous and even fucking up I get it. But I've tried numerous times and not once I've been able to get it. I'll try the augment that helps you stand your guard or whatever and see if that helps.
I'm about to bitchslap Grigori's dragon dildo. Is there anything i should buy to get dragonforged ? Playing with daggers and shortbow.
