>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.

great cannon is only boring if you're not being creative
drop FMS and take blessed riposte and a sorceror trio with maelstrom, fulmination, and miasma
you will do 10x as much damage and have 10x as much fun
Is the cockatrice unclimbable or something? Nearly every time I grab it will cause it absolutely freak the fuck out and not stop bucking around until I fall off again, can't attack it like that at all when it's flipping out.
mfw back to back Ur-Dragon grace period kills.
This fucker still wont drop that Dwells in Light Sword
Post Arisen and main pawn in the Cassardis pier during daytime.
got a couple from my first day playing
>I remember Stone Forest is a fire attack
Some of them are nice, like the one in the Twin-Drake room. I wouldn't waste RC on them unless you either really need them at that moment OR if you got too much RC from rents like myself.
>Pawn only mines nodes that you're already mining
>You stop to let him mine it instead
>He stops as soon as you do
Nigger you literally have almost 300k riftbux, what are you worrying about? Your little slut pawn or whatever probably get's rented and fucked by big ogre dick 10 times an hour and you're worrying what to spend your RC on?
Hey peeps, is thew pawn system working? I cant see any kind of reviews or ratings in my paw, I though they fixed it like 2 days ago? Also do mods have anything to do with that?
>Drop connection while getting rewards
>No RC or rewards
>Sleeping again doesn't give it to me
>Restarting the game and trying again didn't work either
Did I just get cucked out of 100k RC and all the shit I got gifted?
Takes time. She will now just mine on her own if I'm near it not doing anything, or grabbing something else.
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.
oh wow we're really flying through gens now.
It was in grace like an hour ago.
Shame I missed this one, I needed to dragon forge some pawn gear.
Also I keep wishing I could be a mystic knight with a two handed weapon.
I just imagine how awesome moves like abyssal anguish would be.
So, what mods can you get your pawn "banned" for? Just stat affecting mods?
I finished the game vanilla and want to install a couple minor mods, I don't plan to affect gameplay at all or at the very least only for my arisen, chances of me being "Banned" from the online aspect of the game?
I haven't seen an Eggman edit in forever
Thank you anon
She has been rented several times, I just dont get anything out of it.
Renting Madea and Zangief to fight those bandits with the Pet Cyclops. Early game so the stronger bandits can still one shot me. Better see some 360 degree inputs from Gief, didn't bring this guy into Fantasy Brown Bitch World for pussy ass swordin' bullshit.
as a side note, how is this fight fair?
I mean, insta cast HUGE AOE ball of razor wind shit that instakills anyone inside of it that you can't even cast in the game
I had to use like 15 wakestones for this shit
I'm not sure there are any honestly. I've been modding and using CE since day one and my pawn is still getting hired. Just don't make their stats impossibly high and it seems to be fine.
>Bought Secret of Metamorphosis

If I can possibly remake her, would this as pawn healslut get hires, or am I doomed to make tiny whores/memes
Pawns can't be hybrid classes so you wouldn't affect your pawn. From what I've read, it only happens if your pawn has altered stats or gear or some such.
>want to level vocations for a few key augments
>don't want to have to kill Ser Maximillian to farm guards
>Get a BBI gift from a rent
>Noice, lets see what it purifies to
I don't want to check, I just want some texture mods, maybe a slightly cheaty weight limit mod. My entire last playthrough I had to have my pawn carry everything becuase I was always at average or higher weight, that's with pretty light armor, I couldn't carry any potions or special arrows because of the added weight making my stamina drain fast as fuck.
I know for a fact that it is climbable because I once rented a strider pawn that immediately climbed on the very front of the cockatrice face and took the petrification breath head-on for about two seconds before it was dust.
You may already, but use sinew if weight is an issue. Having the pawns carry everything for you is a big reason they're there anyway. If they die it goes to your storage automatically.
>not making your pawn a slightly shorter clone of your Arisen
What about the first dragon that show up after you become a God?
I mean usually Arisen lose in final battle become a new Dragon, but if Arisen win he become God.
In that case who is the Dragon?
>your pawn was carrying all your liftstones and wakestones
played the whole game with shitty stat growth, killed UR at lv60 and up to daimon at lv70
just get the 2 magic augments
Just gonna whore for rents one more time before I sleep
level 58 strider, has pretty good daggers and ensnare/skullsplitter.
he's a good boy
we need more riftbux for dem purifications...
Tell me, Arisen:
What is your favorite trash mob?
No, I did Strider start, MA almost exclusively to 200, and still wrecked BBI's aught. If you're worried, just get the Attunement, Acuity and Articulacy from Mage/Sorc then switch back.
Do the cute little mini-beholders count?
Why the fuck does offline ur still fuck off after a while? It's literally pointless other than being annoying. I just got him down to 1/3 of a bar in one round, his last remaining weak spot was on the other side so I couldn't immediately hit it. He wing flaps for a while and then fucks off.
>the UI is broken in the original aspect ratio
Nothing of value was lost
I've been leveling as a strider up until now, I'm at level 27 and I've finally maxed out the vocation rank. I need help picking whether to go ranger or assassin next
slut for cock/10
20-30 ish Sorc
35-50 Mystic Knight
50-120 Magick Archer
and I was fine.
Mystic Knight is better for the main game, but magick archer destroys BBI due to explosive rivet, sixfold and ricochet hunter. It's the easiest class for BBI for the most part.

Time for a new character, I guess? I haven't played an assassin since the original game came out.
I'll put him on right now. He's just kind of a generic Gaben sorc pawn. Should be the last one added with High voidspell and high fulmination and other stuff.
I'm kind of afraid he'll be useless so if he is I'd appreciate some advice on how to make him better
how do i make warrior fun after i beat grigori?
warrior was a great time during the main game because nothing really required much effort.
But now my ranged pawns are just more effective and i'm starting to feel forced to going into one of the ranged melee hybrid vocations.
Even have this sweet dwells in light but it's just not doing enough damage, even with both the magick damage augs + str augs.
It does less than ascalon does with my MK.
>tfw when the ugly thing on the right has armor that can only come from getting a kill shot against online ur dragon
>tfw when obviously modded in
>tfw when somehow not enough gold/doesnt just mod in sultry armor
It doesn't really matter, it takes 5-10 minutes to kill him right now and I'm going all the way to 200
and I'm only at 76. Caxton's best staff upgraded once is doing just fine. But man, RNG is still a cunt even when it isn't super relevant.
Costs 5000 RC and is one time use. Go to the encampment near riftstone and buy the paper looking item from the merchant. Then save and go to menu. There's a new menu option to edit character. It's one time use. After you use it you can't change it again. In NG+ you unlock the ability to edit characters infinitely by buying another item he has that costs 10,000 RC instead

Actually, what part exactly states how to transfer from PC pirated to PC legit?
I see the savegame tool thing but that mainly refers to console -> PC and vice versa, and the other tutorial thing seems mainly about creating a save from scratch.
Slayer of dragons and thief of hearts!
It was tough at first, but
>stamina for days
>regen stamina quickly
>gotta go fast
Leveling Warrior for Sinew was painful, but absolutely necessary.
Neither of those are good. Try something else.
yep, that's what I thought too
Even with Sinew, you've still got objectively inferior stats. Plus, shorter reach for whenever you want to do something other than use a bow or staff.
Wow, it's a wombo combo. Objectively inferior AND shit taste.
>pawns pick up lots of rocks
>as consequence i have 120 rocks in the bank
I think I'm gonna just start hiring random pawns instantly release them, gift them rocks and 3 star ranking them so people think they got banned.
Got rid of the scar on my pawn's face, this look better?
>the face wisps make when killed
>mfw i'm in a room with a living armor, elder ogre, and party of wisps
just kidding, she's pure
>all these newbies that never had a god tier warrior pawn or don't know how to play it
Oh no, Anonymous thinks I have shit taste! :(
Here is another angle
She is usually a Fighter, just getting Warrior perks.
I only liked Kalicola's since it maintained the vanilla aesthetic and just added blur and AO. The other ones don't give a fuck about what DD originally looked like and they just inject some shit tier art. I wouldn't play a brown and muddy game that looked like their presets, that's just ugly man.
I don't think any of the presets have been updated for the newest ENB which Boris is still updating so I would just wait if I were you or find some reshade or sweetfx for now.
CE has some fly command but I think it's noclip rather than a freecam. You could toggle your character off in the photo menu though for scenery images though I suppose. Could be wrong.
Okay, what skills need to stay, what skills need to go?
I've never used a blue class before, and I've never had my pawn be a Sorc before.
If you're around level 14, please hire Jenk my upstanding black hobo warrior. Jenk wields Eden's Warden, and will be a welcome addition to any party.

You just need to change the steam id
>Unpack the pirated save (-u command)
>Change the SteamID=7392.... line at the bottom of the ddda.sav.txt file to your actual steam ID number
is the name of the folder inside steam/userdata/ in your steam directory
>repack the save using the -r command
>copy DDDA.sav into the real save directory
pirated saves ended up in %appdata%, but legit saves end up in the steam directory
If your having trouble getting the command box to work with the mod, the easiest way to get it done is
>windows key+ r, 'cmd'
>drag and drop the mod .exe
>'space' '-u' 'space'
>drag and drop ddda.sav
Rinse and repeat for repacking
you have the standard problem of a first sorc -- too many super nukes
drop 3 super nukes and bring comestion, levin, and voidspell. the last slot should either be fulmination if you have a melee party, or the supernuke of your choice. bolide is pretty reasonable, but if you are an MK take maelstrom because it combos great cannon
uh, fighter, not warrior. whoops.
>tfw nobody hires jenk
So, other than that lion dlc arm piece thing, what else do I need to create my husbando?
Try them both, it's not like they're hard to change around.
>The other ones don't give a fuck about what DD originally looked like
>brown and muddy
I really don't see how you can say that.
>drop 3 super nukes
Holy fuck, never give advice again. That's the whole point of Sorcerer and spell syncs, might as well be Mage.
Just drop the affinity. Some people don't like Maelstrom so it's on you.
That looks muddy and brown and you're getting shitty FPS on top of that. I don't understand what you mean.
just for curiosity's sake, has anyone hired a Strider pawn named Dismas?
I've been getting a lot of hires in BBI.
>That's the whole point of Sorcerer and spell syncs, might as well be Mage.
there are 3 reasons to run sorceror:
spell sync, or
fulmination for a yellow party, or
maelstrom/miasma/fulmination for an MK
if you're going to spell sync then certainly you fucking know you're doing it, you're going to have to actively search for pawns with similar nukes, and you wouldn't be asking "what skills should my sorc pawn take" in /ddg/
melees with a sorc backup just want fulmination and maybe bolide

>1 star appearance and a large nut
No, just new. Calling Yotsuba 404 girl used to be bait until it got to the point that anyone who said it was known to be joking. This was a long time ago. Like misnamed reaction images. So taking it as actual bait makes you look new.
fulmination is great. I also like brontide.
At high magick levels Miasma is good even without magick cannon spam, since it can hit weak spots very easily and just keep hitting.
It's not even as brown and muddy as the vanilla game, let alone browner and muddier.
High Miasma starts ticking for loads of damage around 2500 magick on certain enemies. It also has the benefit of not making wraiths disappear while it ticks them for damage but I prefer to cast Bolide for wraiths.
The detailed shadows and removal of the vignette are good and the AA isn't bad in any way. The rest is either bad or it gets in the way of gameplay.
there are like 3 on the nexus, try them all.
Nobody said it wasn't more brown we just said they still were brown which is a bad deal.
>tfw don't have much time to play so am not as leveled as everybody else
I just got a fight at about 3 bars, so kinda?
Appears that we've been fighting two generations at a time though, so if the latest fights have been any indication then once 14 goes down it should have a quick grace followed by finishing up Gen 15.
>there are like 3 on the nexus, try them all.
I've tried a whole bunch, I want to know which one was posted
Specifically. DoF looks enhanced and it doesn't look like it changes too much otherwise, which is what I want.
I will likely give him another hire when I rotate my pawns next, thank you for fixing him anon.
Seems that most all of the random pawns I hire that are good end up being from /ddg/. This has happened a few times now.

Didn't even know this was a thing, And just put's another check on this pawn as being the best I've seen.
What is that giant wolf-like beast that just appears out of nowhere in bitterblack isle? I was fighting a cockatrice with some goblins and then it just appeared out of nowhere with a cinematic camera focused on it. I died to it. I tried again and it appeared after I killed the cockatrice. I almost had it down but it struck me and I died. Now I'm trying to make it spawn after having killed the cockatrice again but no luck.
How do I make it spawn? I wanna take it down.
>miserable haunted forest
The entire game is miserable then because that's the only palette outside of dungeons. ENB has a de-palette option now that would do something similar but instead of color it would just get more washed out.
looks like wickfut
60fps because its locked
>maxed affinity with duke's wife after that
this happens in most rooms of BBI. When you kill enemies the stench of death will attract some boss like creatures.
What you fought was the Garm, probably the hardest one of them all because like most of their type, WOLVES HUNT IN PACKS.
You can get rancid bait meat, an item you can drop on the ground to attract those bosses.
So apparently you can pickpocket buffalo.
So much to learn in this game.

About to hit 40. Is there any reason for me to swap him back to Fighter at some point?
foul beats are attracted by rotting corpses after killing enemies (or droping a bait meat item)
lightning is good for bitterblack because it works against garms/ eliminators and elder ogres
I'm getting mixed messages here.
>warior pawns are shit
I've spent probably 10 hours with the same warrior pawn.
Oh he made a reshade for it. So the ENB just adds blur and AO still right? Was >>129285484 something else you tried?
It's just washed out like most console games, that forest is still spooky with color. Just think that even something like Battlefront is washed out without sweetfx.
Would anyone be kind enough to take my pawn? She's never been summoned.
Seraphina lvl 50 warrior - Scather/Pioneer. I don't know what skill are good because I dont play warrior, but she's using war cry, indomitable slash and indomitable lunge.
For some odd reason whenever I try to take a screenshot with her stats it ends up being totally black.
Also, I've been sorcerer untill lvl 50 and now that I changed to MK I feel like I have no stamina at all and my carry capacity is ridiculously low. Should I level up other class to fix this problem or just keep going with mk will solve it? I only plan to play ma, mk and sorc.
>The entire game is miserable then because that's the only palette outside of dungeons.
yes? it's called a unified color scheme
ultimately its your executable so do whateer you want but i think it's really silly that what's meant by graphical enhancement in this era is a hamfisted color rebalancing of everything towards the same ludicrously rich, saturated palette. it looks the same in every game
Warrior pawns can be a bit inconsistent even when trained but when they wreck shit they wreck shit.
And they just feel good to have in your party by virtue of being a fucking Warrior.
>3 friends invite on Steam from new players
I guess my pawn is getting popular
send help i was just trying to get my dick wet
>>people say warrior pawns are shit
tis but a jape
Aelinore is too small. I want to see this cutscene with a fat dwarf as the arisen.
But it makes me choose a moniker. That got me past the main difficulty but I still don't see a way I can go moniker-less, unless you mean "later" as in after I fix my first name.
You should get the Sinew augment from Fighter. You don't have to level him up but if you do it'll also give you health and defense. Also play assassin to give you stamina and physical attack, both of which you need.
If you honestly think the sky isn't blue because of some unified color scheme then I don't know what to say.
I try to keep it down but I do like color like most people do. It's easy to desaturate the game after the colors are balanced though.
I make them as I go, and only stop to catch certain ones.
Is that fighter augment that makes button mashing escapes easier actually any good?
There's a lot of grabs that I can never get out of, partly because I feel like I will destroy the analog stick of my controller if I really try.
yes, that's exactly what I mean.
monkier also doesn't matter if you're playing offline and you honestly shouldn't care if you are because a monkier is only for parental controlled shits that deserve to see shitty names.
ONLY 0.5% OF THE PEOPLE ON STEAM HAVE DEFEATED DAIMON 2.0
WHY HAVEN'T YOU?
Maybe you just like desaturated palettes more.
I've always heard console games are desaturated/less contrast-y because anything else would be impossible to see on a generic garbage TV.
>tfw part of the 0.5%
Why would you backtrack through BBI at all? Top and bottom stratums both have safe zones and there's a path to the surface after each stratum boss. If you need to get the hell out ASAP to restock, use the Liftstones.
Is there a way I can make my pawn a slut for ez hires but turn him back into a man the same way later, without me having to write down all his sliders and shit? Like just save the male version or something?
If I do the quest where the duke gets all murdering and I get thrown in the dungeon can I still go in the castle area afterwards or do I get attacked on sight?
Huh, me too. and i'm coupling it with [spoilerhttp://www.nexusmods.com/dragonsdogma/mods/13/?[/spoiler] seems 1440p is doing most of the work there. Guess I gotta keep fiddling around with it.
Did you write in any personal tweaks?

No, you don't understand.
Brain Splitter is literally broken. It's probably the strongest move in the game. If not the strongest on a single use basis, it by far has the highest DPS in the game.
Hailstorm Volley is also broken as fuck because it fires 24 arrows of whatever variety you want, including blast arrows.
If all you want to do is damage, Strider is the best class in the game.
