      meh, the reward he gives is like 12k gold and a dogshit ring, that you will never use, the elite camping kit the other guy gives is good. Honestly complete the quests how you want to because the difference in rewards between what's most "optimal" is bad in the long run anyways

          Thats how it works out. Cat gives you reward as normal. If you run into him again he tells you others found it was a fake but he just assumes you got duped as well. However he threatens to hurt you if he finds out that you did knowingly give him a fake.

            What does it mean when they hire your pawn but don't like it or give it a heart?

            • 3 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              either
              a: Your pawn fell into water or off a cliff or wasn't revived in time before fading, giving no chance to give a rating or gift (most likely)
              or
              b: the person that hired your pawn is a c**t that never gives ratings or gifts to anyone ever

              The self-depreciating assumption is that they didn't like your pawn but realistically I don't think that happens very often because hosts can already see all the stats and abilities of a pawn before they hire them

        Very cute, will hire.

        And now that you've gone and opened up that can of worms, I suppose I'll post mine here as well. You'll have to forgive the lack of fashion on her-- it's a work in progress that requires more gold than I currently have.

    So is the only missable maister vocation skill the fighter one? The rest can be got at any time, even if you've already spoken with/done the quest for the NPC that gives it but you weren't the vocation for it at the time?
    I need to know for sure before I walk into Nameless Village as not a thief and miss the skills because you can't come back as one and get the skills later

        I know you guys are still playing the game and having fun (so am I) so you aren't ready to talk about it yet but:
        The set of vocations you get in 2 is shit compared to 1. No more dual weapon vocations. No bow/dagger vocations, Magick Archer has none of its cool dagger skills, Mystic Knight is gone, Warfarer is shit compared to Assassin since it allows 3 skills instead of 6, even Fighter is gimped by only having 4 skills instead of 3 shield and 3 sword. Mage/Sorcerer just straight downgraded from 6 spells to 4. This is the worst and biggest issue of DD2 compared to DA. Also no BBI-like endgame. I'm overall massively disappointed with DD2 in every way except the very core fundamental combat, which isn't better or worse than 1 but rather feels exactly the same.

        They really failed in letting so many vocations fall through. I at least assumed MK would be in fighter in some way, but the near entirety of its skillset is just gone, big shields n all. Hell they could have pushed a more holy/dark mechanic for it if they wanted to make each vocations more unique. And good god they fricked up the dragons faith shield so bad.

        >>MK is kill
        Which is so sad and basically needless, because you could just give fighters a way to give themselves a unique dark enchant, and then fighters have basically a great fighter kit while also having a pretty decent set of MK features.
        I still like how well the basic vocations have been fleshed out, but it sucks being a jedi instead of a true MK.

        I only agree for certain vocations. Fighter and especially warrior are improvements. Shield skills are much less valuable than weapon skills, and the movesets have included some old skills or new abilities like finishers on stunned enemies. thief is strong as frick as the dagger class since it gets strider and assassin moves. Mage exists as a support class and you can always benefit from having one around.
        I think Sorc is the one that really suffers from less spells and utility overall. Warfarer should've had a few skills per weapon though, instead of just 3 altogether. limit it to 2-3 weapons to compensate.

            pawns being more capable in combat is a good thing, the enemies being a bit too easy to take down is a problem of their stats needing a bit of a boost.
            Pawns also seem much more useful in pointing out chests and quest objectives in the world, which is great.

                Or you could play the game the way it was intended, just you and your pawn. Hiring two schmucks doubles your fire and stun power. A party of 4 is Very Easy mode in this game, same as it was in DD1. Solo is Very Hard and DD2 does NOT have the Autonomy Assassin augments that DD1 had.

                Battahl enemies are noticeably more resistant to knockdowns than vermund, they can actually fight back. but I haven't been there long, so who knows if the first shop I go to will give me gear to start fricking them up again.

                I still think the game should scale up enemies on NG+, no idea why they didn't implement that. It was one of the things I'd hoped they would change from the first game.

                Definitely hoping for a hard mode eventually, one that doesn't royally frick the balance of the game by making it "get one shot by everything" at first then potentially easier for the rest of the game because of all the extra XP and gold you get. It came out for DD1 like 6 months after release but I think it's something that should've been included by default in DD2. Maybe after they fix some of the technical shit.
                It doesn't even need to be bbi-tier, just make it moderately harder, enemies can be a bit bulkier so I don't tear through them so fast and hit a bit harder.

        I think the actual world of DD2 feels a lot better. Beyond just being bigger, the increase in caves to explore makes it feel like there's more to find
        It really could have used more proper dungeons, or crypts, or areas like the old battleground. Too many caves for my liking.

        To the right there's a small ledge you can levitate on. It's a throwback to the ledge from DD1 which mages could use to get instant access to the Weirwood.

        Well that's fricking moronic. Not having the ledge to get there faster - that's neat, but why the frick lock the door from the inside of the cave?

        Its way better than one in so many ways apart from difficulty, where DD2 is a lot easier. and vocations are way more fleshed out.
        The only thing that should be improved is giving us more assigned skills, because its rough for getting good elemental coverage but even then the increased amount of core skills is a great boon. Mages get fricking anodyne as a core skill somehow. Really strong stuff.

      Equipping the Physical/Magic damage negation augments you also take less loss gauge. I can kill five dragons in a row without resting. There's also the warrior augment to decrease it if you're too much of a moron.

    farming drakes in this one is infuriating. sleep 7+ days then walk all the way there and if they aren't there backtrack all the way until at least a fire then camp then walk all the way there then if they aren't there all the way back to the fire again and yadda yadda all this shit and half an hour later you have +10 wlc.
    i'd farm ferrystones and set up portcrystals but there doesn't seem to be a reliable ferrystone enemy drop and vendor scumming with gold exploiting just "feels" like cheating.

    PSA some quests that aren't explicitly timed are hidden-timed (phantom cart for example) I got it after going to batahl so no, it was not that. finish quests as you get them, other than story quests, I guess.

    I was forced into the last story mission because I haven't explored volcano island. Now I'm being forced into NG+
    I don't know what's the cutoff point but the game should fricking tell you, like going to batahl.
    you can't give me a quest to go there and then nope, too bad.

    there are some serious pacing and story issues for batahl. I think they spent most of their time on vermund and then capcom told itsuno to wrap it up so he can churn up DMC6 or something. there are only about 2 missions involving their queen/priestess.

        Make a living as sellswords and manual labor, although with how easy they come and go from the rift why they would spend their time doing mundane work for mundane men when they could be having fun elsewhere in the multiverse with an arisen is a mystery. I get why the slave camp ones stick around, and that's because that crystal bullshit emulates the arisen's command of the Legion, but the random ones just milling about towns and the roads could just up and leave back to the rift to find gainful employment under an arisen

              The running slide and jump kicking off an enemy kind of serve that, but they take a second or two of setup, so you have to see the enemy coming. Don't really mind it since archer isn't supposed to be up close if you can help it. I think Sorc gets a pretty good stagger resist augment so maybe try that if it bothers you.

      Its really clear how much better thief is compared to fighter when thieves can knock harpies down from the sky and they die to their own fall damage, while fighters have to wait or try to use cloud strike with its worse autoaim.
      That said a fighter is literally invincible with deflect an a support mage, and does lots of knockdown, but other classes seem to do more of everything.

      Whatever you want. A thief with Pilfer will net you tens of thousands of gold once you hit Bathal. I personally don't like caster pawns, enemies will die too quick.

    The game is good besides the level scaling bullshit it has going on. It's REALLY bad. All it does is make the game a slog because to get anywhere you have to fight monsters that are tanky despite you having killed them 10 billion times.

      Did you get the part of the ending cutscene where you can walk around and talk to people as king? Try talking to the ghost of darth sidious who was hanging out weirdly there and hell let you retry to do it right.
      If you need a hint on how to do it right and unlock postgame, notice that Greg the dragon says that your time is up when you reach the battlefield. In other words, you need to do "something" while riding greg and before you reach the battlefield.

        Is the fight at least good? I know it's not gonna hold a candle to the fight in 1, but still. They copied the "hang onto his back" part from 1, but in 1 you just have to reach the glowing spot on his back and smack it. I assumed I had to do something similar to that, but I noticed
        1. There's no spot on his back
        2. I have completely free movement and there's no stamina
        3. I can move freely, whereas in 1 it's just a straight line with the occasional left stick waggle QTE
        4. I can't even attack

        What was I supposed to do, sit around with my thumb up my ass and do nothing? I crawled around until I found his heart spot, pondered on why they would spend their budget on making this interactive rather than just have him monologue in a cutscene, then remembered I had the Godsbane.How was I uspposed to know it would cheat me out of a cool fight?

        Can confirm.
        I wandered over there around level 20 to get some dirt for a different quest and decided to pick up the letter delivery quest because why not, and it turned into a 3 hour pain filled odyssey.
        Mostly because I was moronic and I've been keeping my camping set on a hired pawn and forgot to replace it when I swapped out pawns. My HP cap was down to about 100 by the time I made it to the hotsprings.

    Is there a good place to get a ton of Sunbloom? My pawn is obsessed with stabbing shit with explosive arrows and I can't craft enough to keep up.

      they are super cheap, just buy them and sell the materials from monsters you hunt to keep a constant amount, losing time finding flowers is a bad idea.

    they didn't improve a single aspect from dark arisen besides graphics

      Dont compare it to DA, compare it to vanilla DD1 instead. Tho even then still falls short due to lack of a post game dungeon.

    I'm pretty sure the Pathfinder is not actually the Seneschal. I think the Seneschal is actually the Beast guy who gives you the Godsbane. I think the Pathfinder is a different Godlike being that controls the Brine.

    is it just me, or every time i see this recommended for a game, it never actually does shit?

      at best it might just give you an extra 10% boost
      OS scheduling, at least on sane OSes like Linux, adjusts based on CPU demand from the process. I would assume Windows does that by default too

      It just modern Capcom things, just like Iceborne and Sunbreak did for MonHun i bet the future expansion for DD2 will be great. Thing is it shouldnt feel incomplete without it, which it totally does.

      The pawns catching you is such a nice touch. My gato saved my life multiple times in the walking titan fight. I know the pawns basically teleport to directly under you to make it happen, but I don't care because it's really cool.

      yeah I love the pawns, I liked them in the first game already and they're even better in this one

    so for anyone that's finished it, is it actually Dragon's Dogma 1 as it should have been or was originally intended?

    I'm on the fence on buying this but might wait for a sale if its at least good, but finding any real feedback about the game is hard since its largely wanking over MTX and performance issues (which sure are problems but not fundamental in the long term).

        No. It still feels unfinished. If you enjoyer the first game, it's just more of that.

        did Itsuno at least implement the moon stuff?

          moon was visible in prerelease footage but noticeably absent in final release, my guess is it wasn't ready in time for gold and will be added back in via DLC

          i havent fricked with any of it yet but i imagine enemy hp and damage modifier would be good enough. ill either wait for modders to implent shit like medusa and the sphinx as roaming bosses or just wait for the dlc.

      it's like dragon's dogma 1.2 maybe
      better graphics, different map, most systems are exactly the same
      just more of the same which is great in a way but frustrating in another as there's barely any improvement on issues the first game had

      they forgot most of what made the first game good and unique and just made a decent but middling open world action game. it's fun but it's not what it should have been

      As someone who really enjoyed DDDA and played through all the content but once but was never autistic about builds etc, I'm having just as much fun with this one. If it wasn't for the shit performance I'd recommend everyone play it. I wish I'd just got a PS5 and Rebirth to tide me over until this game gets fixed cause experiencing this game for the first time with all the problems ironed out would have been incredible.
