Hi all, new to the forum. Long long time gamer, from back before confusers. Like all kinds of games but RPG's especially and the Baldurs Gates and Icewind Dales and Fallout 1-2-Tactics, and Temple of Elemental Evil RPG games the most. Played Divine DIvinity and liked it as well. I think Larian is doing fantastically...because....
I absolutely love D:OS. I cant stop playing it now that it is fixed ( for me). I think the combat is among the best combat I have seen in any computer game, probably the best game I have played in 7 years.
This patch made all my crashing issues go away! Thank the maker! SO dont break the functionality fixes.
I think maybe Tenebrium should be a bit more useful, giving the 5% damage bonus per skill level point sounds pretty fair, but better to do nothing than make it worse. A progressive damage bonus making investing points in the skill would be highly acceptable to me, certainly the other voices of protest have played through the game more than the 3 times I have, I prefer real looking weapons, so my real complaint with Tenebrium is how unreal the Tenebrium weapons look, swords with widened points have real balance issues so I just wont even use them, I am sort of picky since I also hate the Flamberge style of blade, and I wish that spears were one handed weapons to be used with a shield, polearms should remain 2 handed weapons Crossbows should have much lower dex stat requirement than a bow and a much higher action point cost to use. I also kind of hate the elemental essence flare on the blade/head of a weapon, a good idea but it should be along the whole length of the weapon not just on the one spot which just looks cheesy.
I like the changes the patch made so I wont be very vehement in my complaining. Just dont become like Blizzard with awful DRM, I hate steam but at least it works, Battlenet just sucks.
Good Job Larian, looking forward to many more play throughs and hopefully more games like this, Larian may be my new go to Game company. Wish there would be an expansion pack like BG2 Throne of Baal!!!!! You get your characters all powerful and cool and then have to end the game...that sucks, but most endings do.
Thanks Happy Gaming!
