Kinda, i don't mind it being needed to see enemies states but it should apply to the whole team if you have one character with points in it

What items do you need to craft a functional dagger?
>>
>>315512685
I have a 2H guy with man at arms, armor specialization, bodybuilding, willpower and charisma (for conversations)
My 2nd char is an earth/fire/witch mage with loremaster
I picked Jahan because he's Water/Air and a crafter
And I picked Wulfgar for the burglar skills but so far have been using him with a bow because all the daggers I've found are shit and someone has to use all those arrows I find
I might even spec him into bows entirely
>>
I heard it's best not to play with crafting since the recipe system is shit and the crafted gear is incredibly OP while also being generic looking so you miss out on all the unique stuff.
>>
>>315514906
You heard wrong. Incredibly wrong.
>>
>>315515975
Friend beat it entirely without crafting and said he dropped crafting after Cyseal since the game had no challenge when he was using it.
>>
>>315514906
Pretty much, still do it if you want to use grenades or special arrows.
Special arrows got a really large buff in EE and with a 100% hit chance they are really nice, as far as CC goes they are better than having a mage.

A mage is still nice for heals, buffs and summons but with grenades and 4AP arrows you don't need a mage for CC.
Even as far as healing goes you can just go zombie on everyone and spam poison cloud arrows everywhere.
>>
Fighter/enchanter or fighter/ranger for a first playthrough? I know you pick up other companions along the way but do either of these combinations have any advantages over the other?

Is Iron Hide/ Weather the Storm still worth it? They nerfed it from 5% * Man at Arms skill to 3% * Man at Arms.
>>
>you can't save and reload until you get better loot from chest

feels fucking annoying man
>>
>not going 3 mage/ranger
its like you don't want to beat honor mode easily, anons.
>>315514906
craft grenades and arrows for sure. without it, rangers get pretty useless later on when you need lots of beefy arrows like static cloud/charming.
>>315516301
you can have up to 4 characters, the companions you can pick up are melee, range, and mage. so it really doesn't matter what you play, especially if its not tactician mode.
>>
>>315516301
Fighter/Enchanter or Enchanter/Ranger might be better because you want to have a combo of physical damage and AOE/support buffs. Ranger does have good AOE from special arrows though.
>>
>>315516201
>>315516656
Yeah I heard that much as well, but I ain't got a ranger in my party so yeah.
>>
>>315510661
In the original Divinity, all the loot had randomized stats. This meant you'd have to savescum to try and get versions of the legendary items you wanted because frequently you'd end up with things stated opposite sanity.

Was the most annoying shit ever.
>>
>>315516584
It's on area load now. As in, the entire loot refreshes the second you enter an area.
>>
>>315516712
then theres really no need
>>
>>315516301
Don't use premade classes for one.
I wouldn't start with a man at arms character myself if i wanted to use NPCs because the fighter companion is the best companion stat wise.

The only thing that you absolutely need to have is Pet Pal talent on someone, that's it. Everything else you can do however you want and you will be fine since the game is pretty easy.
Also if you want to cruise without effort through the early game give both your characters geomancy 1 and take summon spider as a starting skill.

I don't think so to be honest. Here's a handy exploit for you anons that makes the game even easier.

You need rank 5 in a skill to learn 2 master skills, but you don't need rank 5 to use master skills.

>Get to Rank 5, learn 2 masters
>Respec to Rank 4
>Don't lose your learned skills in EE when respeccing

That's what it does, actually. You just ran into one of the bugs where self-buffing scoundrel skills arbitrarily won't apply their effect.

1 talent point for 1 ability point is obviously not as good a trade as for 10 ability points or 2 attribute points. Is it still worth it? Some of the talents look like garbage.

Well, he didn't buy it for 1, so we can ignore him, but I can understand where he is coming from. The game takes a few hours to ramp back up to the intensity they throw you into the game with, but at that point it is better because you understand the game and nothing feels better than scraping by an extremely tough fight that shit in your party rng wise. It's a satisfying experience for me, and for you, but for a lot of people, they want it to be easier, faster, and more in your face CURRRRRRAHHHZY

>for a lot of people, they want it to be easier, faster, and more in your face CURRRRRRAHHHZY
Those are the people who deserve derision though. The rest of the industry panders to their sensibilities. Games like DivOS are different. If he doesn't like it, he can get fucked.
>>
>>315527468
What I really don't get is how people expect there to be a lot of battles when all you're supposed to do in Cyseal is investigate a fucking murder. This is literally explained in the opening cinematic.
Things ramp up when you finally find out what the fuck happened.
>>
>>315527902
It's not like it takes forever to deal with the murder mystery, either. The game only slows down if you want it to, like if you want to craft a shitload.

I absolutely agree with you, I mean, I can enjoy the more casual games as I would enjoy a mindless summer blockbuster, but it doesn't satisfy me like more in depth games do. We rarely get catered to anymore, especially in today's AAA saturated market.

Can you always get all the skillbooks for any particular class? I remember in the original game the skillbooks the merchants had in their inventory were random, and that as you gained levels higher level skillbooks would crowd out stuff like battering ram and crushing fist.
>>
>>315528375
Why do you think dark souls is so popular? It has a steep entry level of difficulty, because the player is unfamiliar with the mechanics and controls. The game becomes much much easier once you get a hang of the controls. They want pseudo-hard games, too easy and they can't "feel like a badass", too hard and they would rather give up instead of overcoming the challenge.
>>
>>315529362
They are random and I'm pretty sure their inventories scale to player level. If all else fails you could just get the book you want with crafting and savescumming.

Whatever two setups you guys will enjoy, then fill in with NPCs. I would advise at least 1 and a half mages, and a frontline warrior. Last slot works well as some kind of rogue or archer.

I never thought I'd complain about something like this, or ever use this shit term.

But holy fuck the traits are gamey as fuck. You can't roleplay or play the way you want when one dialogue option gives you a slightly higher chance to win RPS against NPCs, and the other MAKES YOU IMMUNE TO A PARTY WIPING, GAME OVERING STATUS EFFECT.

Really hope they aren't in Div OS 2.
>>
>>315532013
Same, playing with a friend and every time we see the yellow ! we quicksave, its shit man.
>>
>>315532013
Yeah, they really are horse shit. I try to RP every dialog choice but fucking hell I don't have the discipline to take backstab hit chance for characters who never backstab,.
>>
>>315532013
>MAKES YOU IMMUNE TO A PARTY WIPING, GAME OVERING STATUS EFFECT.
Which one is that?
>>
>>315532013
Fear usually has a very low chance of succeeding and it's built against the same way half of the status effects in the game are. Immunity to it isn't as good as it seems.

I agree, though.
>>
>>315532451
Blunt (charm immunity) / Considerate (+1 Charisma)

Charm is the the fucking worst
>>
>>315532468

I was actually talking about Charm.

I got charmed once because I had no points in either. I CC'd my friends character while the NPCs dogpiled him.
>>
>>315532708
Oh, charm is so rare and can be counter-charmed so easily that I never really cared too much.
>>
>>315532991

>Charm is so rare

It starts getting spammed a fuck ton later on, as well as fear.

NPCs start getting really fucking cheeky cunts m8 with grenades later on, and every 2nd fight from Act 2 onwards has something trying to fear you.
>>
>>315533153
Seems like pumping willpower is the best solution.
>>
>>315533317

Of course, my tank had 6 Bodybuilding and Willpower asap.

But that doesn't change the fact that one dialogue choice does literally nothing, and the other gives you an immunity to the worst crowd control effect in the game without needing a single ability point or piece of equipment. You're being punished for being a considerate character.

How come whenever I attack or damage a zombie monster (e.g. zombie boar) it becomes poisoned by itself and starts healing?
>>
>>315533869
Zombies bleed poison, and poison heals them

Non elemental damage causes them to bleed, they bleed poison, zombies have 200% resistance to poison and so heal from it, they are weak to fire just burn them.

Also I just realized something
Whenever my spider summon hits a zombie, it bleeds poison
But if it's already burning, every poison bleed sets off an explosion and resets the burning duration because poison & fire is bad

Looking at my combat log, it says the spider hit it for 9, which then triggered a bleed, which was poison because it's a zombie, which triggered a 27 heal on it because zombies heal from poison, which triggered a fire explosion because it's burning and it did 48 damage

she's not specced for tanking because you don't spec her for tanking

>2h or sword&board makes literally no difference in tanking
You're retarded. Shields have block chance. blocking negates damage entirely. It's the only choice.
>she's not specced for tanking because you don't spec her for tanking
Because there's wasted points in 2Handers. She's a close range brawler. Not a tank. Comeback Kid is often invalidated by multiple actions or status effects like burning and poison. I use Madora, but only to fill a role in my party. Not because she's exceptional.

New to this genre.

I made a Wizard that uses midnight oil, flare, and a spider. I also pickpocket everything. Any tips for me? What weapon should I use? Also why is it that my flare doesn't ignite the oil half the time?
>>
>>315540919
You're targeting the monster and not the oil he's standing in. Look at the AOE indicator and aim at the oil on the ground NEXT to the monster you're trying to ignite.
> Any tips for me?
Wands are good. Pet Pal is extremely useful and enjoyable and if you don't have it, you can miss quests.
>>
>>315540919
Your flare doesn't hit the oil if it doesn't ignite, you're hitting your target.
If that target started burning the the oil would ignite also.

>>315540915
That's where buffs come into play
My 2H brawler is perfectly capable of taking everything on with buffs
>>
>>315541063
I was completely aware of landing my flare on the ground/target after it happened the first time. Sometimes it lands on the ground and still doesn't ignite.
>>
How much more difficult is Tactician? I found vanilla to be fairly challenging, though I only got about halfway through the game.
>>
>>315541236
Then that'd count as a bug or you're not aiming right.
>>
>>315541428
Are you familiar with the mechanics of the game?
Almost all of the fights are revised on Tactician, with enemies having more consumables and more skills and better AI to counter popular player tactics used during the original game.
>>
>>315517253
I use Madora and a summon to tank. It's working well so far
>>
>>315541236
Try landing your flare so you could see part of that aiming circle on the oil.
>>
>>315541236
I've also noticed the radius of the final effect is usually larger than what it looks like

For example if I have my guys standing next to the oil but not on it, when I light it on fire they still get burning effect anyway
>>
>>315534285
Is that in tactician mode?
>>
>>315538426
I fuckin love physics
>>
What the first fight that usually gives people trouble on Tactician? Because I'm blowing through this shit like a motherfucker and it's my first time playing the game past the inside of the first city.
>>
>>315544148

Sparkmaster was a bit rough. Also the big Water Crab Spider thing.

Bosses aside, there's a bunch of thugs on top of a hill on the beach that are fucking insane, they summon a dude that gives them fire immunity and every single one of them bar the summoner has a knockdown or 6.
>>
Braccus on tactician dice my shit apart.
>>
>>315540919
Also remember that wet enemies have a higher chance of being frozen or stunned by lightning spells
>>
>>315544148
Braccus. I was just confused when he showered me with meteors.
>>
>tfw can't decide between Classic or Tactician
>>
>>315510661

Is there an easy way to skip the murder investigation at the start, or hast he new enhanced edition changed it at all? I tried replaying it like 2 months ago but I just wanted to jump into the combat, and doing the investigation the 2nd time around was tedious, but i couldnt remember how it went down. So i just went through the steps, finished it, died nearly out the gates of the 1st town and started playing a different game.

Pull him with one character that's buffed up with fire resist, keep the rest behind the entrance, then kill the bosses 1 by 1 as they come in. When they're dead, use a summon to distract Braccus while the rest of the party ganks his wards.
>>
>>315545121
Have you played the game before?
If yes, Tactician
If no, Classic to get a feel for the mechanics

I accidentally did this the first time through, which immediately made this game one of my favorites.

Played vanilla about halfway through.

Should I go with tactician then?
>>
>>315545552
Or you know, you could just chain-stun Braccus and never let him get a single attack off, it's not even hard to do.
>>

>>315546117
It's literally impossible when his wards are up so, so you still need to kill those while dealing with Ghoul, Twins and Baron
>>
>>315546160
Anon, literally git gud. Second time through co-op with brother (I stopped after solving the murder the first time) went to graveyard to talk with dog, dig up graves and find the tunnel, be level 2 and end up in the middle of the zombie infested shit, no new gear/spells/skills at all and just shit like teleport, flare and regeneration and we got through it just fine, ghoul was a nightmare though.

Seriously though, how fucking bad at games are you? Currently doing a tactician mode run with no lone-wolf no glass-cannon and no companions and it's easy, stop being shit.
>>
>>315546264
>Never let him get a single attack off
>Impossible "when his wards are up"
Anon, think about that sentence for a second, that should be enough for you to realize it's fucking retarded, because he takes a turn to cast his wards you dumb hongnihong.
>>
>>315546563
Are we assuming 1st turns?
He literally spawns his adds and wards at the start of the fight before anyone gets a turn in.
>>
>>315546714
Nope, he spawns his adds and then casts his meteor shower bullshit skill, the wards come the round after that (on tactician, anyway)

Cast rain for the fire resist and take fire resist potions against the meteor shower before going in and then use telekinesis and chain stun him with shocking touch and chilling touch (your mage should have around 17 int at this point, use drain willpower if you don't have enough) while your other dude fights the adds.

I literally just went in to check on Tactician.
He spawns Baron, Ghoul and Twins, then summons wards and then casts meteor shower, all in one turn.
You're full of shit.
>>
>>315548235
Never had the wards bud, no idea how that'd even be possible because Braccus doesn't have the AP to pull it off, nice try with the bullshit though. Unless you got such low initiative that he somehow chained two turns (he gets a free turn at the start and if your initiative is so low it's lower than his he'll also get the first round on the next turn) and if that's the case good god have you fucked up your characters.

>>315547286
>Polymorph a nigga
>Talk to him via Pet Pal
>He spouts endless profanities at you and pees on your leg

Not sure why an enemy would certainly be helpful just because you've changed his form.
>>
>>315548636
Fear. You just turned him into an animal with a foreign biology/brain/gonads and are now towering over him. You can then be merciful and release him into the wild to live among the squirrels, and he will then sacrifice himself to save you from the final boss' death blow, because you showed him the meaning of humanity. Tears will be shed.

Or you just made him powerless, slow, and easily killed, and are now towering over him with a fireball.
>>
>>315512083

Nope, every voice seems different, cheese salesman is the worst though, he now sounds bored and unconvincing.
>>
>>315516802
So that means you should save before entering an area then reloading if the chests don't get good shit? Or can you just go in and out for refreshes?
>>
>>315549510
Really hate the new "Now where is my pepper" girl, much prefer the original.

>EE is out
Fuck, I'm still playing the normal version.
Is it worth replaying until the plot about the white witch and her mysterious captors/attackers?

As far as I know, you can't transfer a save from the normal edition to the EE.

Anyway, even if I don't play this, I have high hope for OS2 because of the undead race alone.
>>
>>315516201
Some of the special arrows were 100% if you aimed at geometry instead of firing at a moving target. It's like Quake, you have to be smart about it.
>>
Have summons changed at all?
I remember when I played original I had like 2 people with good summons and was completely destroying everything because my summons took all the damage
>>
>>315551543

Summons are still brick walls of damage absorption early game, but on tactician when you reach a certain point EVERYTHING has destroy summon as an ability. At best you trade your AP for theirs.
>>
>>315510661
Does the 4-player mod work with Enhanced Edition?

How hard is to get into this kind of games? Do i get a tutorial area or something?

Yeah there's a crypt in th e beginning that explains alot

Yes, and they make sure to show off pretty much everything else you will need by example.

Am I a casual for playing on Classic?

Is Wolgraff a potential party member?

My friend killed him when we were walking through an underground area. Even though he had a specific name, he just teleported him in the middle of us so Wolgraff attacked.

Don't tell me he's like the only rogue in the game.
>>
>>315552468
Yes
>>
>>315552468
Yes. And yes.
>>
Going double lone wolf, 2h knight + Mage, or 2h knight + Ranger?
>>
>>315552798
You mean you are making a character that is both a knight and a mage, and a knight and a ranger?

You will spread stupidly thin. Pretty much impossible.

If you mean having 4 characters, then you can't lone wolf.
>>
>>315552970

He means will he have his 2 lone wolves be a Knight and a Mage, or a Knight and a Ranger.

Not that hard to figure out.

Anyway, with 2 lone wolves you'll need healing. Go for the mage.
>>
No, going one source hunter as Knight, second as Mage or Ranger.
>>315553201
Yeah, but maybe I can just craft a bunch of potions? I heard mage's power really falls behind mid/late game and rangers and scoundrels just get ridiculous
>>
>>315553606

Potions are finite since you can't farm them, and you'll need a ton of healing.

Try whatever you want man, I'm sure you can make it work with the tons of utility and CC a ranger has.

But you heard wrong about mage falling behind. The master spells for Fire, Lightning, Frost and Earth are fucking brutal. Huge range AoE CC's.
>>
From what I've heard scoundrels and rangers have been buffed enough so I only need one dedicated mage. So if I made him primarily hydro/aero, I can handle setting off geo/pyro combos with just wands?
>>
>>315554181
If you make a ranger then you'll do just fine with the special arrows
>>
>>315510895
crafted weapons are generally stronger too

Been looking for a new rpg to sink my teeth into, but with fallout right around the corner, I'm hesitant.

i found an exploit to beat braccus - worked in my tactician run

break off one member, leave everyone else outside the door. hit him long range to start combat and he'll cast his summons of the three assholes. run back outside the door to fight them one at a time

after that, make sure to bait braccus outside the room then move everyone into the room except one. That one you're going to leave INSIDE the doorway, and close the door on yourself. braccus won't do anything at all during his turn and you can easily destroy the crystals and build up all your AP before you open the door up again.

Is dual wielding worth it?
STR or DEX ?
>>
>>315556669
The latest patch is 2.0.99.676
>>
>>315557904

Dual Wielding is insanely good, but it needs a ton of ability point investment.
>>
>>315556479
Did you put any stat points elsewhere besides Str?
I think Speed and Con might be useful, and Perception on my archer, but do they ever compare to Str, Dex and Int?
>>
Is investing in Tenebrium worth it?
>>
>>315558256

Pretty much all of my str in that pic is from gear. Most of my points went into constitution for nearly 5k HP.

>>315558294

It depends. You need it to wield tenebrium weapons and use bars on weapons to add tenebrium damage.

But, you don't need it to wield items that you have added tenebrium on to yourself. So I just had a bunch of +tenebrium items lying around and with as little as +3, I was able to add tenebrium damage to my level 20 weapons.
>>
>>315557062
>86% Classic
Didn't know /v/ was this fucking casual.
>>
>>315558596
In the original I found a Tenebrium Scythe around the end of Luculla Forest that grossly outclassed every other two handed weapon I ever found.
>>
>>315558740

They changed the way Tenebrium works. The Tenebrium skill doesn't improve the damage of tenebrium weapons, just lets you use higher level ones/add tenebrium damage to higher items.

So honestly, it's pretty worthless now.

>>315559303
The only reason to play the original is if you like games that are less challenging and more broken OR if you have more than one extra player who wants to co-op with their own created character instead of an NPC cohort. EE is better in almost every way.

At that point we hadn't saved manually yet, just used the game's autosave, so we lost some progress too. For someone who says he loves D&D and plays it all the time, he's fucking horrible at it.

While I'm posting I might as well ask, is this game long? I get the feeling it's going to be a short one that you can just replay as different characters.
>>
>>315563852

My friend and I who extensively played the original put 50 hours into EE.

i bought this a while ago because everyone said it was good but i just couldn't get into it, even though I love crpgs
