Incarnate no longer spawns with ANY skills. Even after farsight and power infusion. Is it possible that in removing taunt, you broke him entirely?

My world map has turned completely black and unexplored after this patch. Loading different saves doesn't help. Anybody know a fix for this?

What's the point of removing Taunt from a pet? I always use them as the meat shield which is one of the reasons to have a pet in the first place....

Great patch except for one thing that might be a bug.

I posted on steam about it as well and people have started to respond that they are experiencing the same thing since this latest patch.

Before patch when activating an ability (exa. "Cloak and Dagger") a sound effect would happen appropriate to the ability then when clicking again to cast the ability a corresponding sound effect happens.

After patch when activating an ability (exa. "Cloak and Dagger") a sound would happen appropriate to the ability and your character screams loudly. Then when clicking again to cast the ability a corresponding sound effect happens and your character Screams loudly again.

This occurs with all abilities even ones where it makes no sense like stealthy moves exa. "Cloak and Dagger".

This has negatively impacted my immersion into the game and I am not sure if it is a bug or meant to be this way, but I really like how it was before the patch where people only scream/groan if they are taking damage. If there was a way to put this in audio options that would be great.

- that aside, 150hrs in and this is easily in my top 3 favorite games of all time and thanks for being awesome.

When I talk to The Red Prince now and ask him *Ask the Red Prince what you should do next.* there is no audio for his odd response "In the meantime though, let us continue our search for Brahmos. He knows things. Things I must know." there is nothing in between these two events and there is no audio.

Another thing that never popped up before this patch...skills that triggered from activating other skills such as Medusa head allowing petrifying gaze and spread your wings allowing flight used to auto-populate...now I have to manually set them on the hotbar. Not the biggest problem in the world, but still odd. Also, my dual wielding Rogue Sebille constantly has Sucker Punch populated on her hotbar, despite not being able to use it since she has two weapons. Again, not a huge problem...especially compared to the Incarnate being utterly defective now...but still an issue.

Please revert the patch.

The fact that I'm forced to let trash skills from items (like rain and similar pointless things) back into my hotbar just to be able to use polymorphy again is horrible.

Also I can't stand the constant screams from my toons, this is horrible too.

Seriously!

Don't you have a QA department? This patch is broken, and it's plain to see after 5 minutes in game.

Odd, Spread your wings works just fine for me. I wonder what's affecting it.

Noticed a couple of bugs in the final part of the game. I'm not sure if those were suppoused to be fixed but since the patch notes mention journal updates and dialog fixes I'll post them just in case.
1. One of my companions (the Red Prince) supported me in becoming the Divine but his quest still updated with "He decided to fight me for divinity" entry. He was there on the ship in the end and gave me a super friendnly dialog, so this glitch didn't affect me much, but it looked kinda weird. Might be related to the fact that I didn't finish his quest properly: I didn't hatch the egg and just left after Sadha had told us we needed to use fire breath on it.

2. Fane's final dialog on the Lady Vengeance seems to be broken as well. He went from calling me "My darling" and being all friendly (which was correct) to getting annoyed and ignoring me in the end of the conversation (like he is suppoused to do on negative relationship, only he had attitude 100).

3. Bloody Braccus Rex summoned all three of his friends in the final fight (Kemm, Sallow man and Isbeil) even though I made sure to consume all of their Source exactly because I feared they might reappear later. This isn't suppused to happen, right?

I'm getting this too, maybe it has something to do with dual weilding?

Thx for the patch! It's great!

Btw, i have the same problem as Bercon, my map is totally black and i need to explore it again.

Otherwise, i was hoping a fix for the elves's riddle (in act2, with the 4 trees). When i complete the riddle, nothing happens and there is a lot of people getting this bug.

PS : sorry for my bad english

Since the patch I can no longer alt tab out of the game. Prior to the patch I could alt tab do other things then return to the game.
