- become a young and inexperienced dragon in , only gaining experience and power with time?
- only be able to transform into a dragon towards the end of the game, when you're already quite powerful in human form?
- fight foes that are similarly powerful, like demons, and simply has a "high power level"?
- be confronted with some challenges that cannot be completed by means of fighting, even in the form of a dragon?

Most of the standard starter enemies like animals, goblins and orcs wouldn't be a challenge for a dragon (except maybe in the form of an army), so if you can transform into a dragon early on, you probably face challenges in that are quite different from those in other RPGs?


You'll have to "unlock" your dragon form and all the perks that come with being a dragon knight (there's more than just being able to transform in a dragon but more about that later). Your first taste of what it feels like to be a dragon is on average after a couple of hours (depending on how you play) but the real unlocking happens after you've already done some questing.

The approach in general has been that ennvironment/antagonists/story/scripting nudge you in the direction of "use dragon"/"use human"/"use both", so yes, there are things in there which you wouldn't want to handle in a human form.

Will we be able to change from Dragon into Human form and back in mid-air? This could lead to a few interesting battle techniques :p

I'm sure those goblins would be overwhelmed with your special splatter attack


It's one of these days...

Thanks for the info \:\)

It's my impression that many RPGs become either a bit boring or a bit unfair at high power levels, so I'm looking forward to see which challenges you've come up with for the dragon \:\)

WASD, check out the thread below this one, Leipzig Games Convention ; a new thread for controls may be in order.

I wonder whether the change has some drawbacks or so ?

In my case, I'd need several minutes to accustom myself to a human form after having been in a dragon form for some time.

It's like being a frog before and then - as a human - trying to catch flies with your tongue ...

what customization to character creation will be available ? Will there gender options and race ( just elves and humans would be fine ) ?

From memory: There won't be a race option but you do have the option to select your gender. There won't be any differences in your stats though whether you choose a male or a female character. Just like it was in DD. You also can define the looks of your character. I think there will be enough options for that, but I'm not entirely sure to what lengths you can go.

lulz...Nice one EK

But to go back...changing back and forth in mid-air would be crazy...fly up really high (I am guessing there will be flying enemies btw) turn into a human, fall towards the bad guy, slash em with a giant two handed sword, fall a little and change back.

i hope you would be able to do more then just spit fire balls in dragon from , i think ability of biting , scratching and tail lashing is necessarily too. By the way will dragon be just flying from or will you able to swim and walk in it too ?

I think Lar said somewhere that in Dragon Form, you will keep your Human skills, not sure though.

Watch as this mighty dragon carefully lockpicks the treasure chest without triggering the pointy dart trap.

Btw, remember the so-called "summoner dolls" that you could equip, train and upgrade in Beyond Divinity? Will they still be here in ED?

I hope so! For the most part I thought the summoning system in BD was improved over DD, except for the fact that each doll was pretty much obsolete by the next act. You more or less had to start investing in a new doll in each act, and the points that went to the old one felt a bit wasted. With some tweaking of the skills this could easily be avoided.

Along the same lines, I hope we get a chance to add some NPC's to our party; not necessarily for the duration of the game (would be kind of hard for them to follow in you in dragon form - unless they rode you ), but at least for some major battles or quests it would be nice to have some companions to control/fight alongside.

I got the impression from a French preview that there would be some kind of unique creature(s) over and above the regular summoning spells, but it was only a short reference in a babelfish translation, so may or may not be accurate.

In BD the act 1 summoning doll could equip a crossbow, so kept out of harm's way can be useful throughout the game, even without upgrading. I only used it for the occasional tough fight (and as a mule, of course), and only upgraded it at the end of the main game (using the DK's skill points to learn the summoning doll upgrade skills).
