Can a Paladin MC with heavy shield replace Valerie as the party's frontline fighter? I think he woud bring more utility despite not being as tanky.

Also, what the fuck Harrim

>>1913095
Sure, just take relevant feats and play as Hospitaler.
>>
>>1912961
By sending her in first, using CCs, summons and chokepoints to manipulate enemy movement and realize that your goal is to hinder/distract enemies, particularly dangerous ones for a round or two so your team can start mowing them down, instead of just having one character drawing aggro and throwing him heals, you MMO poisoned nigger

You have to send her in first well ahead of everyone else. Then you follow up with your off tank. then everyone else moves in.

No.

Check the Wrath of the Righteous threads for this kind of stuff, it quite literally has a Lich path. Kingmaker is a lot more limited in regards to necromancy, though if I'm not mistaken, one of the kingdom options has you authorize the use of undead for menial tasks such as farming.

do you honestly get something out of the handful of (you)s you gather by posting this every day?
>>
>>1912961

Send her first and use the environment. Also give her the heart of ira. You can literally put her obstructing the door in most dungeons so that not every enemy is able to attack her at the same time and with the heart of ira she`ll be hurting even those obstructed by the other enemies. You also put that slippery spell (can`t remember the name) right behind her so anyone that is able to pass her slips. You support her with ranged attacks (magic, bombs, arrows) and keep your melee attacker ready to defend those weaker units. If you have a healer like say that fucker Tristian you keep using him to heal Valerie if needed. Unless you break formation you should be fine with this setup for most fights. Some fights may require to act more quickly to deal with casters and status effects or to adapt this strategy for different environments like corridors or places where the highground gives a distinct advantage. Having teleport is a very good idea for versatility.

What the fuck is AT meant to do against bosses that are immune to all their rays? Sneak attack hellfire ray or scorching ray is nice but seeing half of the rays fail to get past spell resistance and the other half do 0 damage makes me realize I'm hauling dead weight

I think if you just complete the companion quests in any way they'll live at the house. I know Ekundayo's darker ending to his quest still keeps him alive at the hateot, either Nok-Nok ending, Amiri's semi-bad ending) etc.

You likely won't play on release because while it wasn't great, it wasn't unplayable like Kingmaker at launch and was in a better shape. The latest beta they somehow made it worse.

I wish the options with bringing Tristian back could let you make it clear you only keep him around so he can redeem himself or he's useful to the party, but any friendship or relationship you had with him is effectively dead and if not for that you'd have thrown him out.

Yeah, it's a issue. Enough of one that they added in a scroll anyone can use that resets your alignment. I was lawful good but from the choices got pushed into neutral good.

Hire mercs at level 1 (you don't need to skip XP, just don't levelup your character). There's also a bug that when you hire them at level 1, the dialogue checks if you have 500gp, but then actually takes a lot less (like <100). I don't know if they fixed that in the current version, I also don't know if it always works, but it is always present in my 2.1.5d. You also can use Bag of Tricks to adjust merc price multiplier, or even give them a 25 point buy option.
tl;dr - If you want a custom party, just make it, it's your game.

How many of you would kill a party member because it makes no sense to recruit them or keep them around or try and come up with a reasoning for having them around? like say the elf assassin in Dragon Age, he says the other assassin's would kill him for failing, but you can't really trust that when he's at your mercy and would likely say anything to try and worm his way out of it.

>>
>>1918190
go for it
if I remember correctly it takes about 2 solid years to do all the curse research, although it's possible to overlap some of it by having your divine and arcane advisors working on different curses at the same time. I think you have like 3 years after Armag before the endgame starts and you can survive that with a maxed out kingdom for probably longer than you'd ever need even if you made tons of optimization mistakes.

Is there a way to reduce how long it takes to research them? I know you can eventually get a project to both reduce the length of time it takes to rank up a stat by a week instead of 2, and same with claiming new regions later.

>Is there a way to reduce how long it takes to research them?
yes, it's called Kingdom Resolution mod
>>
>>1918302
I don't mind the kingdom events themselves, just having to waste so much time on these curses for the secret ending. All I'd want that mod for is to do the curses and get rid of them so I can do other shit. Getting the project to reduce claiming regions and ranking up stats to a week would be fine for me.
>>
>>1918327
Install and uninstall the mod after you deal with the curses.

it's loyalty of the populace. Tristian promotes it through socialism, Shandra - through placating the upper classes, and Tsanna through selective oppression. Tsanna compares her methods to herding animals, but it's as effective as the other two.

Tristian fails at his job because he's TOO benevolent. He ends up placating the people so much that they grow powerful enough to demand separating from the kingdom to become independant. Shandra is just Surtova's lapdog and only works in their interest not yours. Tsanna is fucking crazy and during the final chapter she completely loses it but she's unironically the best of the three.

The only real problem with the funhouse is that it is way too long for its monotonous encounter design, especially when it requires you to go through the same layout in two different timelines and unless you know exactly what you're doing beforehand you will waste a lot of time backtracking.

You can actually loot the grave of the dumb bitch too. It causes some fey to get butthurt at you and they attack you in a world map encounter.

>>1918796
How is it the humans fault? The fey is the one who came there and decided to NTR a local couple about to get married.
>>
>>1918786
Wasn't it just a village? Did I miss something that confirmed it was salad who was responsible. I liked the idea of surprise lesbians and the chaos that comes after.

I'd just like to say Lantern King literally did nothing wrong. Nyrissa got what she deserved.
>>
>>1918807
t. Horned Hunter
>>
>>1918804
It was a village that intermingled with fey who had kings/queens. The "kingdom" clause is loose as fuck, so salad can destroy anything she deems a "kingdom" and it will count.
>Did I miss something that confirmed it was salad who was responsible.
If you actually get the whole story instead of believing lies like this idiot >>1918803, the husband says that he was told of the curse by someone who just pop up one day, and the witch mentions that there is no way the curse would've worked without some outside means.
>>
>>1918747
>>1918758
There are multiple reasons. First, while the game has pretty well-designed and fun dungeons to this point, Nyrissa's home is just a burdensome puzzle house with cutscenes everywhere. I don't like dungeons that are all about gimmicks, like toying around with lanterns or finding all mirrors or anything like that. The dungeon takes a while because trash mobs are challenging and everything that is not fighting is not fun. It's also at this point in the game when the game starts requiring you to have certain skills and feats or you'll struggle harder than others. The game has plenty bad game design choices and this is one of them. Trash mobs constantly cause permanent conditions.

It's not about difficulty, it's about how troublesome and unfun the game feels to play. The final battle area is not even a dungeon, it's just a linear map where you fight the same annoying trash mobs over and over again until you reach the top.

>>1918746
I did. And this is my second playthrough.

>>1918803
>>1918804
the fey had their 'kingdom' alongside the humans for a long time, the storyteller can tell you about their origins https://pathfinderkingmaker.fandom.com/wiki/Cypress_Queen%27s_Paraphernalia
>>
>>1918803
It wasn't as if the fey came out of nowhere and seduced the girl as a joke, she fell in love with the dryad of her own free will and the husband just couldn't accept it. She even broke off the engagement.

>>1918804
You can work it out for yourself, but if you ask the witch she straight-up tells you that cursing a dryad queen into a monster takes seriously powerful magic, a lot more than a couple of random villagers could use even unwittingly. If you listen to the undead fiance's story he'll tell you that he was told about the curse by someone who just appeared one day.
>>
>>1918705
War leaders need not only strategic thinking, but out of the box thinking, ability to take risks and capitalizing on opportunities.
Lawful takes of 'I am going to play by the rules' is the worst mindset for winning wars.
Them both being kind of opposed to using their brains is a problem. Plus Amiri is a girl and the other one is gay - both of them shouldn't be generals because one shouldn't assign that kind of responsibility to mentally unstable people
>>
>>1918822
Lawfulness doesn't exclude out of the box thinking or the ability to take risks and capitalizing on opportunities. Lawfulness above all represents order. If a chaotic general wins, it's because of luck or other advantages. Thinking chaotic mindset would be better than lawful mindset for winning wars is absolute lunacy.

And that's not what happened. The curse forced the husband into undeath, and since the father's name was on the coins too, he was forced as well.
>>
>>1919710
His daughter put that name on one of the coins because of a dream. She seemed easily tricked to me.
>>
>>1919720
The husband tells you he wrote all the names on the coins and threw them down the well. The daughter learned of the curse but did nothing with the coins. This isn't a black and white quest, everyone is fucked in the head, but the husband had the biggest role in it. That's why he tells you to set the father free after you figure everything out.

Devourer of metal will be doing 3d8 per arrow. Consider damage bonus with composite with your boosted strength modifier, and doing 2 extra attacks per round with Haste and Rapid aim, and possibly having sense vitals on top.

Forest.
Followed by Highlands and Underground.

And you pick first world at some point

Do not bother with Plains.


Forest is the best early choice, by far

>>
>>1921437
empty containers that say "goods" in their menu
there are some places in the main game where you can put an item in one of them and they turn into loot chests or they trigger something (like the book door puzzle in hateot)
>>
What's the best advisors? Haven't played in a while so i don't remember the trap or just shitty options.
>>
>>1921447
fuck, I didn't know that and I've finished the game like 10 times. Is there a list of those chests and what to put in them?
>>
>>1921450
Just in terms of statistics none of them, they all work to get stats and other concrete effects

I assume when people say some are bad it just means the ending you get from letting them do what they want has a negative spin, like if you make Harrim your divine advisor and always do what he wants, in the ending linzi will say your kingdom has a bunch of violent evil cults from allowing too much religious freedom
>>
>>1921450
Storyteller for culture, or jaethal if you want a propaganda machine
bart for diplomacy
ekun or kessen for warden
ekun for minister. some say jaethal also does a good job but i've never tried it
the aldori plant for military but only because the other candidates are pants on head retarded
jubilost for treasurer
no good candidates for a regent or magic advisor undortunately (why the fuck can't you make bart a magic advisor?)
tristian makes a good councilor if you're willing to overlook the whole 'tried to destroy your kingdom twice' thing
>>
>>1921462
oh, and jhod for grand cleric because fuck religious freedoms unironically
>>
>>1921458
I couldn't find a list, the ones I know of are the hateot puzzle, the two dried herbs chests in act 1, and apparently a thing I never did which is that you can summon something at lake silverstep village to get a fight by putting the fish from the shore in a goods container there. I hope there are more I haven't heard of before.

summons a wyvern. it's not a chest, it's a pile of bones and viscera on the cliff above the cyclops cave
>>

you put a dried herb in a chest and you get some hidden loot. First one is in the abandoned hut area, second is in the jail cell holding stag lord's father in the stag lord fort (there are books in abandoned hut that say stag lord's druid father makes these magic chests). The loot is nothing world changing so don't be butthurt if you never found it.

That's just how D&D is, if you get hit on an 11 roll instead of a 20 roll you're taking a good bit more than 10x as much damage (extra from crit confirms). It's why everyone that is ever going to be attacked needs only-hit-on-20 tier defense, at least against the most common enemies they're gonna fight.

I have Linzi for Culture right now and besides her showing obvious bias to her friend she's been fine, I'd rather storyteller for magic. Amiri isn't actually that bad in my experience as a general despite not expecting her to be particularly good at it and someone was saying earlier Regongar is actually good as a warden. I only have Valerie as a diplomat because Bart got killed by trolls and the only other option is fucking Linzi, who I put on the job for the first event since Valerie was busy as Regent and she wanted me to let Pitax hunters off with trespassing instead of having patrols on our borders.

Here is the best way to enjoy Pathfinder Kingmaker:
>use less than 6 characters, at max five, preferably four for variety and to have enough to fill different roles: this makes the leveling speed tolerable
>only mercenaries since the quality of writing in this game is absolute garbage and also because it is a roleplaying game, so roleplay and create your own custom group based on your preferences
>have resting remove all status conditions
>while playing, don't read any dialogue garbage: just check the alignment of each choice and pick the skill checks that give you the best way reward aka most EXP
>no savescumming, obviously
>as already pointed out, skip all the trash dialogue unless there is EXP or quest to be gained
>the end-game is absolute gabrage (as we've noticed) so once you reach Nyrissa's dungeon, just restart the game with a new party if you insist on playing it: fun comes from different party setups and experimenting
>naturally set Kingdom Management to auto because while it has potential, it is a mess filled with terrible game design choices and basic mistakes from the devs such as poor UI and tons of completely unnecessary loading screens

That is all, if you disagree that's fine, you may remain inferior. Though there is another option: play a better game.
>>
>>1914658
Kingmaker has no summon limit.
You can roll a cleric and use meta magic to fill out 3rd, 4th, and 5th spell slots with Animate Dead. Then fill out 7th, 8th, and 9th spell slots with Create Undead.
With Evil domain and high Wisdom you can easily get 30 or so skelly summons. Combine that with other cleric or wizard party members and you can flood the world in hordes of skellies.

Your very existence is an insult to RPGs. If you were participating in a tabletop session and your dice roll failed you, would you stand up and demand that the DM allows you to reroll again? You Skyrim-normies have no sense of roleplaying, immersion, rules and consequences.

Of course not, but I'm not playing a tabletop game, I'm playing a video game with a set story. If I fail a check or die or whatever in a tabletop game that's just a different route that the game's story has taken me. Sometimes that story was as simple as my rogue not getting a pair of high end magic daggers he saw locked in a cage, sometimes it was that rogue getting blasted across the room by an explosion after he failed to disarm a trap (I miss my boy Merrin he was fun). If I fail opening a chest in Kingmaker I'm probably never going to get the things behind that again, even if that thing was merely a +1 weapon that nobody in my party uses

That's the point, you wouldn't because you are a Skyrim-normie and these kind of thoughts are completely alien to you.

The whole point of out-of-combat feats is that by investing in them you can increase your rewards and out-of-combat options. What's the point if you just savescum anyway? Let me guess, you only pick combat feats, savescum through the whole game and then pat yourself on the back?

You are my arch nemesis too, like the animeposter.

I go with the consequences whatever they may be. I realize I'm in the minority and somehow "hardcore" even for doing this but I do. One playthrough I almost went bankrupt because reg kept dying. Makes the runs fun but obviously its for people who do multiple runs, failing a check on one run is no big deal because there will the next one.That said opening boxes doesn't matter at all.

You don't get one try, you get one try each level. Come back later and try again when your skill is higher.
You should always give your main lockpicker the feats that improve trickery.
It is also a good idea to have another back up lockpicker just in case. Octavia, Jaethal, Jubilost, and Nok Nok also have trickery as class skills.

You are just a Skyrimbaby that cannot handle the fact that you can actually fail in this game.

Cant really think of anything right now, but are you sure there are no unique items in locked chests? What if there is a really neat item for your MC, you just turn 360 degrees and walk away if you fail? I'm sorry but I just dont believe you purists play like that.

I remember back when I played PST the game assigned me the neutral good alignment that eventually shifted to chaotic good because I sacrificed a village to some demons in my quest to stop the transcendent one
when I picked CG I thought it play out like that or at least close to it ie. putting the good of your kingdom and subjects ahead of everything and everyone but here they translated CG as having total and complete disregard for rules and laws if they get in the way of a good deed

>>
>>1922537
>redeem a bunch of key people, I think that cult leader that you can convince to commit suicide instead of killing his daughter
I think I did that, I guess then you need to do both Jaethal and Tristian's side of the quest perfectly to have him survive, because I'm pretty sure I wasn't very forgiving in the Jaethal questline.
I actually reloaded the whole house and told Jaethal to fuck off from my party so that I never have to see her again, but she shows up and kills Tristian all the same in the house anyway.
>>
>>1922541
Yeah you need to do both of their questlines properly to have both survive. I don't know who lives/dies depending on whether you do one wrong
>>
>>1922535
I'm not sure if Tristrian can survive a Jaethal-Tristrian confrontation if you didn't do the stuff to make BOTH of them survive. I've only had both or only Jaethal live. I assume you can kill or never recruit Jaethal in the first place or something but I haven't done it myself. I feel like I've heard people post like "WTF Tristrian killed Jaethal at HATEOT how do I avoid" before so there must be a way.

You didn't fuck up. The bastard swords from her quest are pretty great, especially the one you get from the best outcome. Don't feel like you need to have her stick with bastard swords the whole game (you can if you want to, I did); if you think she's falling behind weapon-wise just give her a good greataxe or greatsword until you get access to one of the better bastard swords. You only miss out on the bonus from Weapon Focus and Improved Critical, she's a barbarian so she'll still hit almost as hard.

If you have nothing in the offhand, it is treated as two-handed, the exception are Two-Handed Fighter class perks - those need real two-handers. Try equipping and unequipping a shield and you'll see the damage change in your character sheet, and in combat you'll use 2h animations too.

I'm playing an Evil Sage Sorcerer and want to take a 1 level Wizard dip. I know the general rule is "thou shalt not lose caster levels" and being an extra one behind as a Sorc might be painful. But I'm thinking a bit of XP overlevelling would reduce that and I also get:

>Bunch of extra lvl1 spells
>Extra feat for whatever
>Arcane Bond / Familiar
>First Level school skills

The spells arn't all that but stuff like truestrike / shield / mage armor the duration doesn't matter much and it means I don't have to waste a Sorc pick for them. They also scale with Intel anyway. I'm thinking the scroll savant feat could be useful for use any item rolls. Otherwise its just an extra free feat for whatever. I'm thinking Viper and Enchantment for the familiar and school though. Gets me +5 persuasion and +2 saves against enchantment. Though something like Evocation and Arcane bond would also be useful.

Seems pretty decent for a 1 level dip. Thoughts?

It doesn't sound very fun. You're one level behind in spell acquisition from being a Sorcerer and now you'll be two levels behind. As a Sorcerer you won't hurt for level 1 spells either. The early game is the worst time to be a caster and building such a character is very much about the journey too. You can say 'yeah but I'll merge with Lich' but a) it will take a while of sucking your way through the game and b) aim for the stars bro, don't settle for a worse spellbook merging.

It's not always wrong to dip full casters. Once you're, say, a level 10 Wizard or Witch that one dip into Sorcerer can give you a very good bloodline power and you have enough spells already that it matters way less. Especially into Crossblooded Sorcerer. You can have elemental bloodlines for nuking or serpentine/fey for enchantment spells. But dipping into Sorcerer is where it's at, the other arcane casters don't give you nearly as much as you'd want.

It's funny since you can get that ending while also having Valerie as your queen.

Valerie's not that friendly either. She's not as antagonistic but she's pretty snobby and quick to anger. I will say though it's justified with Linzi because even though she makes it clear she doesn't like getting constant compliments about her appearance and shit Linzi still simps hard for her. Her entire questline is just her actually understanding it's okay for someone to have a different opinion to you on something, in her case art.

It's basically a dip for the value of a couple of minor feats. I don't think I'd ever find it necessary and I'd definitely be cursing it when I was one level below the threshold of unlocking a new spell tier, but I imagine there's some situation where those feats can do something vital.

Yes you can but you MUST NOT support Annamede when you meet her,after you kill Inoveti you have to choose a new headmaster and killing that cunt is the (Lawful Evil) option and best outcome

Consider that sycophant will 100% support if you let remain the leader of the academy unlike that other treacherous bitch.Yeah i'm siding with her

Dumb lawtist, just let the Academy elect their own leader if you're that put out by the idea. The scene where Annamede stabs Atalia in the back (preferably right after she's decided to jump ship to you after all) is too hilarious to miss out on.
>unlike that other treacherous bitch

That doesn't happen, though. The ending only says that they're not shy of criticising your rule, not that they do nothing but do so. That's a pretty clear difference.
>and tells you loyality if for idiots?
There's nothing wrong with that, it makes her a known quantity. And at least she actually does her fucking job. The best ending is where you let the bards appoint their own leader (which Annamede is fine with), but Annamede is definitely a better choice than a washed-up, incompetent sycophant who is almost universally disliked by her fellows.

>let me guess Chaotic Neutral?
Lawful Neutral/Lawful Good (emphasis on the Lawful), because LN should be about being sensible, not "I'll choose a worthless lickspittle over someone actually competent just because they pledge loyalty to me"

Any advice for druid builds?

Not really sure what to do that lets me do more than just sit around while the animal companion decimates everything.
>>
>>1924724
just go defender of the true world and spend you time shapeshifted and flanking enemies
>>
>>1924724
magic fang
stacks with
greater magic fang
which stacks with
manticore claws
which stacks with
amulet of mighty fists or agile fists
which stacks with
monk robes (which don't work when you shapeshift, so this isn't that important for a druid)

between that and your buffs and defender of the true world bonuses and thundering bear claw scimitar and your pet a druid that pumps strength has very strong total damage output - substitute a martial, not a cleric. 1 tradmonk/19 defender of the true world.

If you really love unkillable characters you can fire and forget in RTWP you can make a feyspeaker and lose 5 AB at 20 but self-cast mirror image, but in turnbased even on unfair it's totally unnecessary
>>
>>1924779
*also if you equip the sai with the "greater speed" trait in your offhand you get two extra attacks per turn while shifted
>>
>>1924628
Auto will fucked you up because no matter what the AI is fucking retarded, go with Effortless instead.

If auto doesn't break the shit out of something important I'd use it on a replay, just loading in and out of the throne room is a fucking chore
