      It does NOT explain the extent.
      It does not escalate things.
      You go from a pawn mouthing off at you to the pawn obliterating a settlement.
      It also doesn’t trigger even if you’re camping constantly so it’s not as if you can see it decimate a countryside to know ‘oh shit I just dodged nuking a town’
      It’s poorly conveyed.
      Luckily for myself it only nuked the border checkpoint and NPCs respawn, so now I just have to figure out where Dante’s body went to in not!Gran Soren.

          It tells you they're stronger, they're problematic and disobedient, and that keeping one around invites calamity. By the game's logic, this could've been anything from a plot twist happening to more hostile enemies pouring on you from nowhere to people in towns being buttholes about it, there's a lot to figure. Nothing actually warns you that sleeping in an inn/house in a populated area results in an infected pawn killing everyone there in a cutscene until it happens, and then there's no takebacks since the inn/house rest is a backup save in the first place. Then you have to either tediously unsummon your pawns every time you enter a major town to not deal with the potential happening, or make sure to kill/brine them the very instant they start being a jackass and disobeying orders or notice they've got glowing red eyes / are clutching their head in pain.

          It's something that haunts you the entire rest of the game and can happen solely because you made a wrong pawn pick past the first warning.

              Calamity is literally any disaster, you dishonest Black person shills. Summoning a special monster in town (that the player can actually fight off) would be a calamity. Even trying to pretend that the word has one extremely precise meaning referring exclusively to unpreventable genocide is mindbogglingly moronic even by shill standards.
              Also,
              >You also have to consider pawns are totally replaceable
              Frick off and die. In DD1, the bond between an arisen and their pawn could be so great as to grant the pawn humanity and a significant chunk of the story centered around this phenomenon. A game mechanic forcing players to treat their pawn as a pest that needs to be regularly killed off is terminal cynicism.

The fact that the entire mechanic boils down to "regularly kill your pawn or every npc in town will die" is such lazy, soulless trash.

                Is there a punishment for regularly killing your pawn? Or does the only punishment therein involve you not doing so when you should have? Seems like it was thought about and implemented just fine. Your pawns are not essential NPCs, they are not permanent, they are simply empty vessels that can be filled with anything imaginable, and as such drakes and dragons have the same power over them they always had in DD1. It's simply much worse now. Calamitous, if you will.

                No, which is part of why it's such a shit mechanic. There is no reason whatsoever to not just throw them in a lake before resting at inn. There's no weighing consequences, it's just an added step of tedium.

    The game is made for New Game+ and being replayed, that's why the game is relatively short, that's why parts of your game world can be permanently fricked over, that's why you're literally encouraged by the game to not try and do everything, this game has more in common with fricking Dead Rising than Skyrim so let go of your completionism autism. Because stuff gets reset for the New Game+ cycle anyway.

    Yes the fact that you can't restart your game is fricking stupid, but it's not a game where you're meant to make different characters like a conventional RPG. You play different vocations and make different choices with each new cycle

        Literally what the frick are you on about? There was NOTHING like the Dragonsplague in DD1. The worst that could happen in DD1 was you locking yourself out of some weapons if you skipped the Idol quests, or, Fornival (the best merchant) getting jailed if you fricked up.

      It's not even a completionist thing, I think most people just want a perfect playthrough. So instead of being surprised or interested when something unexpected happens and planning how they'll move forward they just think about how their playthrough is now tarnished. Also I brine'd pawns before for being dumb, if one backtalked me or stopped following orders I'd probably have tossed them even if I didn't know they had dragonAIDS

        In the first DD you beat the game and make a 'beat the game' save file. When you started your next new game using that base file, you kept all your items and class progress but the world fully reset. Whether the game got harder or stayed the same difficulty depended on whether you picked Hard Mode; it does not have the Dark Souls world-gets-strong system.

        DD2 changed how vocation stat growths work so the player doesn't have to worry about leveling their character stats permanently because it literally made no sense in the kind of game Dragon's Dogma is. The vocation switching and 1 save file is clearly there to tell you that the game is meant to be experienced through retooling your existing 1 character

          You're sidestepping the point. People. Want. To. Play. Again. From. The. Beginning.
          They want the taste of exploring the world again at level 1; they want the taste of unlocking their vocation skills; they want to fight the enemies in the world at a low level. You CANNOT do this in New Game+, because you're already an OP walking god with everything unlocked and all of your equipment maxed. It's NOT an exaggeration to say that New Game+ is Very Easy mode, which is something most people have no interest in doing.

          No, that still doesn't make sense. Stat growths were never intended to discourage players from playing around with different vocations and the way augments unlock proves this. But they still had the option to start over a new save. Because starting the game as a fighter and then transitioning into warrior, maybe assassin for a it, then mk, and finally playing with sorcerer is not remotely the same experience as doing that in reverse.
          The game not having an option within it to overwrite your save is objectively stupid and there is no possible defense for it.

              Also, it didn't stop anyone when the game first released because none of us knew about the stat growths.
              Is it a bad system? Yes. But it does not remotely force people into strictly playing only certain vocations to the extent that it alone is what justifies the ability to start over with a new save.

        DD1 i could get my all three of my Pawns to ignore enemies and follow me to the other side of the map.
        DD2, at least one of the Pawns decides to turn around and start fighting a single goblin despite me mashing the "To me!" command. I didn't even get to the part with Dragonsplaque yet. I was just trying to expand the map and find more areas with Portcrystals. So hearing that the infected Pawns disobey commands was confusing when I felt like they were already being disobedient.

      If you rest in an Inn/house, fight a dragon, hire a pawn your pawn has a chance to get Dragon Flu. Resting in Inn/homes causes your pawn to update so even if you have pawns who don't have it, it can always get it while it was out with some other adventure and bring it home to you.
      Also it will kill everyone in the city while you quietly doze off because apparently your MC either a heavy sleeper, or your pawn kindly plugged your ears before going on a murder spree.

      It might be the nature of how this game focuses more on the combat more so than anything else, but the whole thing once is so anti-climatic. Your pawns don't talk about it after the massacre happened. The morgue dude, who is the only person who's conveniently spared, doesn't comment on it. It happens, you get a shitty little pop-up telling you everyone's dead, and then you move on to end of the game since all the quest givers are dead. It's so lame.

      Dragons are failed Arisen who have transformed, but they retain their connection to Pawns and so can make them obey them instead of you.

      Look on the minimap. If their icon changes to a hand they are trying to lead you some place. The problem I am running into is that the pawns will try to lead you to someplace the game has not opened for you yet leading them to stand around or run into a wall. If you get close to the wall you can even get a cave or similar marker to pop up on your map but there is just no way to get to it.

    The biggest issue with the Dragonsplague is that the outcome is magnitudes more severe than the lead up to it would suggest. The fact that it "invites calamity" is a little vague, and the fact that it starts with simple things like a Pawn being a bit rude suggests it's more of a long term lore thing and ingame you might have to deal with a hired Pawn turning on you at worst. Then you sleep at an inn and an entire town is immediately dead, no recourse, game saved. Yes, there are signs it's happening, but the signs do not in any way signal to the player how immediate and severe the consequences are. If the game wants to introduce such an important mechanic organically then it needs to spend way more time warning the player what the Pawns are capable of, so when you DO start seeing the signs the player knows how bad things could get, especially if the intended design is to immediately save the game and lock them into it.

        You get woken up at camps if you're ambushed. Why does the same mechanic not apply to the Dragonsplague? What SHOULD happen is that it triggers a boss fight against the Dragonified Pawn, and it's a race against time while said Pawn targets everyone else in town. That would be WAY more interesting than a literal textbox explaining "whoops everyone died tough luck, kiddo." Everything about the Dragonsplague conflicts with how the game is expected to work.

        You can't keep buying the DLCs so you can get a max of 5 wake stones which doesn't nearly cover the damage done by a Pawn. It's the same with all the DLC, they're one use only and you can't keep buying them.

            No I know, I'm trying to explain why it doesn't make any sense to assume the mechanic is designed around MTX when in reality the DLCs are not microtransactions. It's basically like the DLC Fallot New Vegas had where you get all the good guns right at the beginning instead of finding them.

      The warning is your pawn starts acting like a psycho for a long time. The pawn gets red eyes, refuses to obey orders, generally being an butthole, displaying skills he or she shouldn't have, has headaches/coughs.

        So it doesn't just happen out of nowhere then. I've literally had my Pawns talk about this disease multiple times so I was concerned it was going to show up out of nowhere but it just sounds like morons mindlessly playing the game and not paying attention. The only issue I have is that is there any indication that you have to kill the pawn to stop it from happening?

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          The tutorial window outright states it. There are no known cures for the plague. The pawn either passes it onto another pawn, getting rid of it in the process, or he becomes forfeit i.e. dead. Pawns don't really "die" since you just bring them back from the rift.

    I have to say, I've actually been convinced by the thread and changed my mind on the issue. My initial thought was "wow this is bullshit, what a huge consequence for something so seemingly inconsequential." But I've since realized, the entire game is like that. The entire game is built around the concept of loss. Items go bad with time. NPCs die permanently. Quests are timed and have consequences. It all boils down things that seem important being either unattainable or lost with time. We put so much stock in games being "games" you can "win" that we forget to have experiences. You've forgotten thy charge, Arisen.

      Yes the game is about loss and consequences but Dragonsplague is not a fun mechanic to interact with. It is the equivalent of making a rule that: "You now have to jump once every 10 steps or you lose 50% max HP permanently. We warned you so you better stick to it and don't complain." Theses are just yet one more tedious thing you have to check with 0 reward or your savefile gets ruined.

          That could definitely happen if they did make a DD3. However, I don't think capcom will make another one. The only reason they made dd2 was because dd1 fans had shilled the game so hard for so long that dd2 already had better marketing than most games do before it was even announced. But I don't see that happening with this game. In fact, it's probably even going to tarnish the reputation of the original in the long run.

                The mechanic is just bad. It doesn't make the game more interesting. If you know about the mechanic you either obsess over everything your pawn says to make sure they're not sick or you brine and dismiss them all before you go to an inn which has no consequences. It honestly feels like a mechanic just to frick with somebody who wasn't paying attention to the tutorial pop ups or the inane chatter the pawns constantly fricking spew.

                it's a mechanic to frick with people who turned their Pawn voices to 0% after getting tired of hearing the same conversation for the 100th time in a row.
                does shutting off subtitles remove the dialog boxes at the bottom of the screen?

                That's moronic anon. You'd only fall for the obvious mechanic if you're completely zoned out and braindead while playing it.
                The only VALID criticism I've seen is not knowing that sleeping at the inn is the trigger.
                It's like, okay, I'm inviting calamity but how and where? You can't go out into a field and make him explode. You can't camp and make him explode. No it's specifically an inn.

                So I could see an anon wanting to test out the plague and wanting to do one last save at the inn before shit goes down and... boom. But thanks to the internet, everyone now knows what the trigger is so whatever.

                does sleeping at your house trigger it too? is it just the inn?

                It's anything that triggers an "inn save" and updates your Pawn's online status. So yes, your house counts.

                What? When a character dies in this you go "oh damn" and move on, there is no way to frick everything up. When characters die they get sent to the crypt, where you can revive them, before the plague is introduced you are given an item that marks all wakestones on your map, and enemies in the end game drop them. You cannot frick this up man, you will have a hell of a lot of them by the time the game gets to the point where you even get to late game where you can just find them on enemies.

                This is being massively overblown as to its presence in game let alone how severe it is.

                I found one. How long does it last? Does it update when more shards appear or does it only show what was present when you used it?

                Is it the "box" or the consumable you have? The box is unlimited and just requires it be in your inventory, I dont know how long the consumable one lasts I never used it. It shows the location of ones you havent picked up only.

                Seems they refresh after 2 weeks, i could be wrong on that, but it did come back after some time.

    Dealing with the plague is easy, but the real question is, what’s the fricking point, when dealing with said plague involves tossing yours and other players pawns off a cliff instead of any actual interesting content, and the only outcome to not killing your pawns at the first sign is getting a whole city nuked? The initial interviews made it seem like the plague would make your pawn really strong until they snapped, but they seem pretty basic if not more annoying until they go full schizo.

          But then again, death is meaningless for pawns, rendering the whole mechanic pointless garbage that feels like leftover from something with actual consequences and choices

            well everything is fricking pointless with that mindset its just a little side flavor to the whole dish that is the game its honestly fine it tests whether your actually paying attention to your pawns mannerisms or running around hitting buttons

            its a pretty kino braindead moron filter

              No it isn't you moronic Black person shill. There is an enormous gulf of possibility between the mechanic not existing at all and the player's only interaction with it being brining their pawn.

                It add a layer because it shows your clearly not paying attention since pawns talk about it constantly AND your pawn should start to say/do weird things before it happens if it happens that by itself changes the gameplay since you now have to pay a bit more attention to your pawn

                now if YOU dont like it thats your opinion that doesnt make it a bad mechanic

      If there was some negative consequences to throwing pawns to their death constantly it might mean something but as far as I'm aware there isn't. It's just pointless busy work. I honestly wish I could see the brain storming session for this mechanic and what they thought this was going to do for the game.

          It was just cheaper than motion capture and animation IIRC so they ordered the food themselves, cooked it on video, and ate it after. So I assume it was the only competent producer.

          And your pawns you took could never be affected by it for no real reason. Also that it was always premade characters they used for it, now its other players actual pawns and not just an enemy mob that is wearing clothes you can wear.

    is it only your pawn which goes on the murder spree? I got the popup a while ago, and a mage pawn was acting b***hy when I pressed help so I benched them, but my pawn is such a sweetheart and is still as chipper as ever. Also, what happens to the players who make their pawns silent lol.
