Odd there's no thread here (besides an old one about beta) concerning this game, since it would be right up the alley of all RPG gamers who reside here.

Personally I think it's better than D:OS (yes, that good!). Combat's not as good, but it makes it well up with the excellent plot and dialogues.

Still some issues I hate (Lockpick/Mine disarm XP and the enchantment system at top), and hopefully they can fix those things in the expansion or sequel. But it's a great game even without those issues.

As for the Beta-thread here's suggestion about no-Combat XP... It's great! (aside from mentioned lockpick XP being added :/)
Remember that vulcanic area in D:OS with the 3 paths? The path with combat (+20000XP) and 2 without that were totally bonus XP-less? Didn't you hate that too and found combat XP wrecking the entire idea behind D:OS about different sollutions?
D:OS could have been so much better using such an XP setup... but maybe for Larian's next title!

So, what were/are your thoughts?

I myself loved Pillars, they made awesome game as well as awesome words, and I do hope that it wont be the last game we see in that universe.

As a game I liked it more then D:OS myself, lets be realistic it had better storyline, I liked the combat system a lot as well but not as much as I loved D:OS combat system.
