She should set up shop awhile after doing the *Chasing Shadows* mission.

You might have to progress the story abit more. Where are you?.

Just been to see the duke. Needing to do that quest would make sense since she never set up shop on my first play though and I never had any interactions with Mason outside of him being disappointed in me.

Yeah, that would be the problem then.... pain in the arse really as she stocks some good stuff that would come in handy for your pawn.

I named my pawn derpy, which seems to be a fitting name. running off cliffs, standing in front of boss creatures, spending ages healing me when I've only lost a sliver of health, but letting be run around with my heath flashing red while they walk in circles taking in the scenery.

How do you rate people? I've seen no way of doing this.

also, going out at night is a bad idea :(

You get the option to rate folk when you send them back to their world with presents.

I switched classes to an Assassin and I am enjoying the game a lot more again. I found my damage against the big creatures was just pathetic and thought switching it would help. It did, I'm actually making an impact on boss health now rather than just holding on for dear life until the mages decide to lift a finger. It has also given me a variety when it comes to dealing with regular dudes.

I have also switched my pawn to fighter so apologies if anyone was using her before hand and now she is no use.

I'll carry on using her as long as she remains a damage dealer... my Mage slot is already took up.

Managed to kill that chained up GoreCyclopse yesterday, with the help of your pawn Bob... then hit another wall in the shape of a fucking massive ugly

Evil Eye

... some more leveling in order, methinks.

I am right at the end I my second play through. Tempted to go take a look at the add on again but also mulling over going through on hard mode and then doing the DLC. Have you tried hard mode? Any thoughts?

Haven't tried it so i don't know if you get an xp boost from kills or quest rewards... if you try it let me know.

So playing last night, and I stumbled into a dragon while taking a shortcut around the edge of a swamp.

A FUCKING DRAGON!

needless to say I had my ass handed to me, I need to remember to save more often!

I went back and had another go, trying to climb onto the damn thing and try to take it down, but no joy, that thing is rock solid.

Its abit of a shock when you first bump into him, believe it or not he's the weakest of their kind in the game.:)

I think I'm about 22, I'm really early on in the game, and like I say, chipping away playing about 30-40 minutes at a time and playing as a ranger, I've been enjoying taking down a Cyclops pretty much single handed, provided it's not wearing a helm. my pawns keep saying how it would be easier if we could knock the helm off, but no matter how hard I try I can't smash the damn things off.

I found myself getting mildly annoyed last night, that my pawn could have easily rain down fire on the saurians (sp?) who were crushing me in a corridor, but instead derpy decided to start whacking at them with her staff...

It's warming me up to the idea of playing dark souls

If you climb onto a Cyclopses back then up near their head they'll try to grab you... sometimes knocking off their own helm.

22 is a little early for that Drake... bear in mind he's weak to ice so have a Sorcerer and Mage with relevant spells and if you can get his heart exposed he'll take massive damage.

Thanks for the tips!

I'm pushing through some side quests for now to level up a bit, with the exception of escort quests, stupid NPCs.. :fist:

Do you have access to the eternal ferrystone? When I was doing escort quests I would take the quest, see where they wanted to go, put a waypoint down, cancel the quest by pressing on the notice board again and then run to the location and put down a portcrystal. Go back and get the dude or dudette and then quick travel there taking them with you.

Hard mode gives you a load more gold. I have been getting 10k from wolves sometimes and doubles your xp. Quest xp remains the same.

Nice to know Bob, cheers.

I've read about that ferrystone but haven't got it... any tips on how to get hold of it?.

Looking forward to starting this next week. I have a question: how integral is the online to the game? Is it just a case of connecting to Live so you cant download your friends pawns?

The eternal ferrystone should be in your storage as long as you have played the original game. When I loaded this up it told me I had been given the ferrystone and 100000 rift points. Being able to zip around everywhere makes the game so much more enjoyable for me.

Floyd, that is pretty much it. Even if you are offline there are plenty of pre made pawns to use. Or if your Internet is intermittent then once you have a pawn in your party they will stay there even if you go offline.

And is it worth downloading the online pawns? I'd rather not gimp the game with an overpowered mage in my party.

Unless it is someone from your friends list you have to pay for the pawns with rift crystals and even a few levels over yours are pretty expensive so most if the time you will be hiring at your own level. Of course if you have Nag on your fiends list you will have access to his high level DPS Mage so I should answer your question... Way to ramble Bob.

I would... Try it and see. Go in with pawns around your level and if you start getting frustrated with the battles, especially against stuff like Ogres and Cyclopseseses which are the most common big bosses, grab a high level pawn and see how your experience changes. Personally, an established pawn made the first few hours of the game a lot smoother until I had crafted myself into a lean mean fat grilling sexual tyrannosaur machine. Then once I had got to grips with everything I had Nag's pawn who I was usually chasing ten to fifteen levels behind and a healer that was the same level as me.

I feel like I just spouted a load of shit without actually saying anything. So I will add this to the end. Nag's pawn used to wear a thong and an overcoat. The fucking pervert.

That's good that's pretty much what I wanted to know. I'll play it offline to start with.

I don't know if you've ever played Disgaea but I had a really long file in Disgaea 2, and late in the game I accidentally threw one of my characters at the enemy and he went up around 400 levels. Obviously it was a mechanic in the game I hadn't even realised was there. Was annoyed afterwards though.
