Yay! Finally getting a chance to jump back into the game.
Phew. I am rusty. Good thing I have a test party to explore first.
I just completed my first battle in Reis Lodge, having seen Vlotgar’s acts. A pity I saved him in this game.
One major comment, the defense values of enemies are still really high and hard to hit. Two orcin warlords nearly had me in tears of boredom. My Kincaid and Selen, high Acc characters were something under 30% hit rates. Don’t even ask about kyera and Kjartan. This is with max CA, EA, FU, and PS, max skills/attributes, and Acc equipment, plus high level talents. I actually returned to town and am rethinking all my equipment and respecs to adjust play styles. My poor Kjartan’s firestorm was useless. A lucky cast would maybe hit two enemies and most likely whiff, a sad fate that made him sit out the battle.
Edit- In town and realizing how old this party is. It predates expanding skills to 20. Rejiggering equipment and thinking about party respec. My newer parties will have made better use of planning and crafting. Also, Immolation may cause much more dam late game than firestorm. Still, I do enjoy lighting up a field of enemies.
Before. The Warlords and most enemies were on the mid-60s. Lvl 64 as I recall. I think this party is better optimized now and would have done better. Hard to say by how much until I bring another party through.
Basically defenseless? I would have hated to see the originals. Essentially, I would stick CA and EA on everthing and then pray for Selen to stick PS on them and then hope for a massive critical from Kincaid. Took forever for the warlords and trolls. Even the shaman laughed at me.
Having done the next battle with ratkin, it was easy as cake with all my characters hitting. The orcin were jarring compared to the rest of Ep 4.
