The quest log got fixed?
The part when it doesnt update even after the quest has been finished.
My main problem was the never updating quest log. The weird black cat and the fact that the dog kept barking at this cat while its no longer with me.

So, Warlord, Rage, 2handed-Warfare-Warrior will be still pretty broken? Rage got a nerf aswell as Hail strike and Cripple, but the main issue Warlord didn't get adressed it seems. Also Winterblast still seems to offer eternal Stunlock.

Also not sure, what do think about identifying consuming identifying glasses...

But overall most things look fine, some are hard to understand. Not sure what roots and Paperdolls exactly mean for example.

Every single items in the game has "a root" to the game. It's the term we use to describe any items smile

I'm curious if Luck will be more desirable with the loot/treasure changes.

Lots of nice changes albeit most of them aren't feedback from users here, but nice to see all those fixes and minor adjustments. I didn't see anything about the main camera's default position being too zoomed in fixed, that was a big complaint from all of us.

Running a Geomancer fighter with swords feels so bad now.. I get melted by ranged characters so quick. Feels tough to place a melee character already because of mages (Arches are not too bad.). Oh well..

Can you elaborate on what you think changed to make it worse? Not hating, just genuinely curious.

It's nice to see that using the space bar to quickly loot and close a container works now, not in the patch notes that I can see though.

@Kalrakh the paperdoll is the view of your character in the inventory window showing how your character looks when you change armour. Reminiscent of paper cut-out figures that you can add cut-out clothes with fold-able tabs to dress them up, like this:

A couple of quick notes:

-An EA patch is not a reflection of where we stand with development but rather a list of things that were cherry picked because they are ready enough to be tried out. We try to avoid including things that are broken because they are being worked on. That doesn't mean we're not working on them. E.G. We have a development track running which fundamentally changes everything related to the camera but it's going to take some time before that's ready.
-A lot of the feedback on stats systems has already been incorporated but aren't part of this patch - they should be in the next one though. We're now play testing to see how it feels. There are quite some radical changes in there.
-The repair consumables are a try-out & you'll see us try a few others ideas in that area. We want repair in there to associate a cost with bashing in things etc... A consumable equates it to a gold investment. The idea has sufficient merit to try out.
-It took us quite some time to get this one ready, more than we actually wanted but that had lot to do with us changing our entire server infrastructure . We'll try to shorten the patch release cycle in the future.


Where stands it written that I have to be fair?

With comments like this, I hope I hear you speak more in the forums. XD

This addresses almost all the issues I have with the game at the moment.

Good job.

I like that you give us the complete list of things that were changed. For example in Pillars of Eternity they said that patch 123.666 fixed this, that "and many other minor bug fixes". Later the forum was full of posts like "did they fix bug xyz?".

Regarding the first point: In the last version repair hammers were consumed on use, but tongs could be used to repair things without being consumed. I hope that has been fixed.
Personally I would remove durability completely. In DD and D:OS1 it was more annoying than fun. D2 did not have it and I did not miss it.


I really like to see changes in the stat system and some skills. Lets see what the next patch brings.

We try to avoid including things that are broken because they are being worked on. That doesn't mean we're not working on them. E.G. We have a development track running which fundamentally changes everything related to the camera but it's going to take some time before that's ready.
-A lot of the feedback on stats systems has already been incorporated but aren't part of this patch - they should be in the next one though. We're now play testing to see how it feels. There are quite some radical changes in there.
-The repair consumables are a try-out & you'll see us try a few others ideas in that area. We want repair in there to associate a cost with bashing in things etc... A consumable equates it to a gold investment. The idea has sufficient merit to try out.
-It took us quite some time to get this one ready, more than we actually wanted but that had lot to do with us changing our entire server infrastructure . We'll try to shorten the patch release cycle in the future.


I assume that the next patch which changes the stat systems will be save-game incompatible with this version? Right. Yes. Of course it will be. In that case, I think I'll wait for radical changes.

I don't want to play too much and burn out.

I do wonder though if using Bedrolls no longer outright kills players with the Zombie talent, and while Zombies are no longer harmed by the Necromancer passive, I also wonder if they are now healed by it properly.

Thanks for that clarification, should have been said initially but now we all know. Looking forward to shorter bursts of patches, it helps with giving feedback quickly to see how well they work against other parts of the game.
