Can someone explain

How the frick I’m supposed to play this game?
It’s just not clicking
Every combat scenario is fricking brutal. Is it supposed to be like that?
And the game just kind of throws you into everything without explanation and if you’re not familiar with d&d it really throws you off. Hours in and I still don’t understand what a cantrip is. Is it just a spell?
How come every 2 steps I roll some sort of dice. And 99% of the time it either “passes” and nothing happens or it “fails” and I like walk slow for 15 seconds
Should I be trying to jump everywhere I can? Why can’t jumping just be a button press like any other rpg
I’m just lost Gankerros. Lost.
The story is pretty interesting. I wanna give it a fair shot. The world seems cool.

    The combat is utter shit and requires you to savescum, especially later on. The story nosedives hard past act 1 and its where most people like my friends quit, despite playing it together. I found the game to be pretty terrible overall, especially the gooner dialogue from the ugliest npcs possible that became unbearable mid of act 2. I played it for free though, so eh.

    You're just dumb as frick and don't read.
    >Hours in and I still don’t understand what a cantrip is. Is it just a spell?
    Every item, spell, button or whatever has a thorough explanation, plus even more if you press T and hover over highlighted words. You're just dumb as frick.
    >How come every 2 steps I roll some sort of dice. And 99% of the time it either “passes” and nothing happens or it “fails” and I like walk slow for 15 seconds
    Because things are happening which you'd roll a die for. You don't notice because you're moronic, i.e., dumb as frick.
    >Should I be trying to jump everywhere I can? Why can’t jumping just be a button press like any other rpg
    The jump button has a letter on it. You didn't notice because you are dumb as frick.

    here's a primer, frickwit:

    >what are cantrips
    Spells you can cast for free. Spellcasters get a limited amount of spell "ammunition" per day and cantrips cost none
    >What determines whether an attack hits
    Every character has an "AC" or armor class. When someone attacks they are rolling a 20-sided die and adding their proficiency bonus (based on level), their ability modifier for the weapon (strength or dexterity typically), and then any bonuses from equipment. If the total number is equal to or higher than the AC, it's a hit and they get to roll damage.
    >what do the classes do
    Fighters hit things and wear heavy armor
    Wizards blow shit up but go down to a stiff breeze
    Rogues are good at lockpicking and sneaking around and generally being dick-ass thieves
    Rangers have pets and decent bow options
    Monks are fighters that hit things with their bare hands and attack more often and don't wear armor
    Barbarians are fighters that trade better AC for damage resistance (halved physical damage while enraged)
    Don't bother with Sorcs or Bards or Warlocks until you grasp the game
    Clerics do everything

      >don’t bother with sorc bard or warlock til you understand the game
      Fugggggg I went with bard because I figured since it was a “dungeons and dragons” based game there would be like a legitimate charisma based playstyle. Like usually in RPGs charisma just effects random minor things like shop
      Prices or how much info someone gives out, but I figured playing as a bard in a d&d setting I’d be able to talk my way out of most shit

          there's not really anything to learn besides the combat is bad. If you go into a larian game thinking the combat will be good when its only purpose is to slow you down and give you something to do you're in for a treat.

          The largest learning curve in a larian game is coming to terms with the game not being fun

    Game feels more like an oldschool point and click adventure game than a typical crpg we been conditioned to in past two decades. Combat isn't about stat-checking opponents or timing epic i-frame dodges and is more about using gimmicks or taking advantage of consumables game throws at you. If you care about story play then play on story mode/balanced and save tactician/honor for another playthrough.

    Early level D&D is horrible. It's best to start tabletop games at level 5 for that reason. There's a lot of impotence for characters early on. Pathfinder alleviates a lot of this, and I recommend playing those games instead.

      If this is your first CARPING you should probably play on normal or easy.

      It's a weak spell that you can cast how many times you want. As opposed to the levelled spells that have a limited amount of casts.
      >Should I be trying to jump everywhere I can?
      Sure, as long as it doesn't kill you.

      IIRC you can keybind any ability to whatever you want

        3.5 is more complicated, but Pathfinder frontloads some abilities to make the first few levels not so shitty.
