I recently showed a friend of mine this game, and he was blown away by how fun it is, which made me want to fire it up again. Does anybody on /v/ still play this? I recently took a look at mods and it looks like nothing's really been done in the past year or so, but the game's still a good time on its own.

People tried doing some shit, but anything other than graphical mods had a habit of breaking your pawns. So the scene died pretty quickly.

The intended progression is after you defeat the boss and enter the post-game stage (you'll know it when you get there). You can go there early and cheese certain things to get overpowered gear, but you'll just spoil the rest of the game for yourself.

It's the best place to do it. In the tunnels and the open courtyards your pawns are at high risk of being OHKOed, whereas on the bridge you can manage him even when he teleports. I've lost his loot drop a grand total of one time.

YEP. Shit does stuff like editing AI (enemy and pawn AI without causing server bans on the pawns), messing with enemy hp, damage, defense, and elemental resistances, and so forth. An example of the edited enemy AI: Saurians can now throw their spears, and also form roman phalanx formations.

Dropped.


dc5bd3 No.13920674

>>13920652

It alters enemy AI (also pawns, allows pawns to use throwables such as skulls, throwblasts, and dragon spit), stats, placement in the world, adds situational spawns (for example, a video on the mod page shows a fight against 2 condemned cyclops and death near the shadow fort that only occurs if you go there with no pawns in the party), and is generally just aimed at making the game more difficult / skill dependent. The mod author is a bit of an autist, but it's one of very few mods even updated for the most recent DDDA update.

That said, if you're planning on using any mods on the steam version, if they haven't been updated since that last update you WILL run into crashes eventually.

Mostly cracking open the files with their own custom tools that they can't/won't share because they're super against piracy and doesn't "…want (their) tools to be misused", and directly editing files by hand from their. Mostly through hex editing after that I believe. They're active on the discord they link and on their nexus page, so if you want to ask you'll probably get an answer within a few hours.

Fuck it, I'm basically already shilling the fuck out of the WD mod.

Changes I've noticed myself:

Wolves ACTUALLY FUCKING HUNT IN PACKS. No more 2-3 wolves targeting a pawn/arisen at a time, up to 6 can target you now, and they have much higher health and damage,

Goblins: Aside from being a bit stronger, they're REALLY weak to poison now. In fact, it basically makes them act like they're drunk until they get killed.

Saurians: Basic saurians are now black and oily. Weak to fire now, strong to ice. Saurians in general now can form roman phalanx formations, throw their spears, and the saurian sages cast more spells now.

Cyclops: They'll fucking toss shit at you now. You killed a few goblins? Prepare to have their corpses get tossed at you, along with those barrels.

Snow harpies: THEY HAVE ANODYNE. THEY CAN FUCKING HEAL OTHER MOBS BY SINGING NOW.

Dire Wolves: They're weak to ice now. In fact, most enemies have a chance of being made into ice statues if you use ice damage on them, and doing something that would cause them to be knocked down afterwards will cause them to shatter.

SKELETONS: THESE FUCKERS got a big buff. Nigh immune to slashing/arrow damage. SUPER weak to fire and holy now, slightly more weak to blunt damage.Good luck on these assholes. The mod dev included a skeleton nerf file in the zip for a reason.

Wights/Liches: They have more spells available to them now, and are generally just fucking deadly as shit compared to their vanilla versions.

I bought this game a year or two ago and bounced off it, mostly due to a lack of polish in certain areas, and I ended up selling it. But I plan on trying it again early next year.

The only reason to not be a fighter/warrior is you don't get the mobility options the other 6 classes get. No double jumping, no floating, no rolling. They do good damage, but they're limited to 3 weapon skills.

Warrior is just a heavily downgraded Fighter. You've got one impressive, highly niche move, and everything else is shit. Did you know that Warrior pawns actually do higher DPS if you don't equip them with any attack skills? That's how trash that specialization is.

I think Deep Down just slowly morphed into MHW. MHW is mostly what Deep Down was going to be but with more dungeons and the devs just decided it had a better chance of selling as a Monster Hunter game.

It is what it is but at the end of the day we still got the game no matter what its now called.

I'm up to the assist Mercedes quest and the pre-everfall game is still challenging. I also installed the tweaked xp table that comes with the mod so I'm still lvl32 despite doing fuckloads of quests. Enemies are much harder to stunlock and have more hp, certain groups of bandits aren't so tough anymore, but all the monsters seem stronger, especially direwolves and chimeras, I've ran into groups of giant red skeletons, some kind of hyena-looking wolf variant and one of those giant dogs from BBI just running around the overworld, I also ran into chimeras in places I've never ran found them in before, so the mod definitely changes things around.

IMO this is what hard mode should have been, I'm very happy with this mod thus far.

It's a separate download in the nexus mod page though, because you have to merge it manually into the main game arc using arctool, it's worth it though, and merging it like that also allowed me to merge in stuff like increased RC rewards for quests, higher jump and better player textures.

If you guys want, the mod author made a pre-merged arc with a few outdated mods they updated themself in addition to the exp table. They don't remember much of what is in it, aside from 'sprint uses less (it uses some, it's not infinite, and skills still use the normal amount) stamina', 'hd scar texture', 'hd skin textures', and a few others that don't generally mess with the overall game balance.

I played a bit of it but am too suicidally depressed to get into an RPG anymore, apparently. I liked the companion customization. I REALLY liked how your companions will smash shit in the world and loot boxes for you. That appeals to a younger me who was a completionist and in-game hoarder. I also like the flavor speech from companions. Perhaps I didn’t play enough of the game for it to get annoying/repetitive/maddening, but just the act of your companions opining on the location “These are good sturdy walls,” or “I have more information about this quest” so you can talk to them, and even when you’ve been walking around “I’m more familiar with this place now” giving you a trigger for what I assume is increased abilities from them there.

More games should have added this flavor, or at least added the “companions loot shit for you” thing.

Oh, forgot to mention, if you try the world difficulty mod and start a new game, be prepared to fight the prologue chimera for like half an hour, also make sure you do all the shit you can in Cassardis to buy the best available weapon before leaving or you might not do enough damage to rescue the merchant guy from the goblins. The very beginning of the game is kinda brutal with this mod, but at least you don't have to be as scared of the bandits.

The are looting shit because the AI actually learned from you. the pawn AI does this all the time, a ranger pawn of mine learned ome bad habits of mine, like rushing into melee.

I'm doubtful of that, it seems pawns have prebaked behaviors each with a score and a checklist of prebaked knowledge, you can easily see it in cheatengine or the dinput hook. I think the score on each behavior determines which active AI they switch to more often and the knowledge checklist just marks if the pawn has certain prebaked trick unlocked for use, like cutting lizard tails or casting lightning on cyclops.

Okay, so, is there a version of this World Difficulty mod that changes the AI of creatures but doesn't have me facing fucking Death in the overworld?

Because I don't want to face Death and Gore Cyclopses and shit in the normal fucking overworld. When I face them I'd be totally fine with them having enhanced AI and being significantly harder, but I don't want retardedly difficult shit just popping up out of nowhere because some guy thought, "Well, wouldn't it be fun to make a basically unwinnable encounter here under extremely obscure circumstances that are impossible to predict?"

Those are conditional spawns that you'll likely only see if you run around with specific "odd" triggers, such as going solo with weapons multiple tiers higher than the current world level.

>>13925457

Except it provably is true. Make your character short enough and you can enter certain tunnels that you can't enter with taller characters. Make your character tall and fat and they have a higher carry limit and use stamina quicker when running.

Kinda, but warrior will feel gimped compared to the other classes.

Switch classes a lot to keep things fresh and avoid burnout, don't play on hard (It's a meme difficulty that leaves you overleveled and with too much money anyway), don't worry about min-maxing classes because it gives you a negligible benefit in the end. Make sure your pawn isn't guardian or nobody will hire her.

It gets pushed by people who assume dying in one shot earlygame makes the game better. Normal difficulty does become too easy lategame, but putting it on hard really just shortens the goldilocks zone where everything feels just right, since you go from underpowered to overpowered quickly. Hard mode was originally released as a free patch anyway and really designed to add a bit more difficulty to NG+ (which has no inherent difficulty modifier, so you stomp through a new game with your endgame character.)

How viable is it to jump around classes in Dragon's Dogma again? I'm running a new character on the PC port and want to play around with the range and magic classes. Is it possible to do so without gimping oneself? I remember this game having a weird leveling system where certain classes caused particular attributes to level up which could give your character weird stat growths or something. Honestly I would role multiple characterw but with how the game only has one save and how slow it is to get Gran Soren I'd rather just play around with multiple vocations on one character. I'm also remembering how awful certain fights are without range options relying on pawns to deal damage is just the worst


c46cce No.13927012

>>13926970

Depends on what you mean by "gimping oneself". If you don't min-max, you'll definitely have a harder time, but not that much harder, and the game is quite easy as-is outside of some encounters in BBI.

>I would role multiple characterw

You don't "roll" characters in this game, or really any non-pnp game. You create characters.


f79407 No.13927030

>>13927012

>You don't role characters

My mistake, I just use that to describe fucking around with different builds in games like Dark Souls, but if I'm not actively screwing myself over by screwing around with the range and magic classes I'll be happy.

Carry around some of these and you'll be fine, as long as you keep whatever weapons you choose up to date.

I always get torn when I replay this. On one hand I really enjoy the full strength playstyle with fighter and warrior so I want to go full melee but on the other hand the magic classes are really fun. Currently replaying now as a sorcerer/MK/Magic archer and it's pretty fun, I just wish more games could get this kind of enjoyable combat right.

Does the world difficulty mod affect physical resistances much? I remember playing through most of the game, especially bbi, was much harder as a pure strength melee character due to many enemies having good physical resist. Am I going to be in for a much tougher time as a physical character who doesn't use sorcerer pawns?

Did they make Bandits broke? I always hated how some bandits would die in one hit while others could tank you for ages while nearly 3 shotting you and the only way to know beforehand was to attack them and see how much or how little damage they take. Otherwise it sounds pretty neat, do non magic parties have any new options to deal with ghosts other than slowly whittling it down through hitting possessed pawns and waiting for your mage to use one fireball every 5 minutes?


dc5bd3 No.13927241

dragon spit, throwblasts, magic weapons will help with ghosts.

Bandits should be a bit more equal to each other, rather than the fighters/warriors being extremely armor heavy in comparison to their buddies.
