I did that too, and that troll massacred my entire party at second level. Came back at level 5 and my main character annihilated it by himselfMy favorite part so far was stumbling upon a gigantic troll early on with only a four man party... and getting wiped over and over but still feeling that if I could re-arrange my gear and buffs I might just be able to keep my tank alive long enough to kill it. I probably reloaded 20 times before things started to come together and I finally took it down. I could have just left and come back later but it's super rewarding to beat it at level 2 and I had a blast the whole time.

Anyway, if you think the troll was hard, wait till you come across a group of Wererats
This game is truly brilliant though, and the devs are cranking out patches at a blistering speed. I highly recommend it for anyone that's wanting to find a true modern day Baldur's Gate experience
You should definitely get it man. The amount of patches they've released so far has been staggering!Interested in it but think I'll wait a few more patches and dlc.
My level 4 party just entered a random cave on the map and got ambushed and annihilated by three Wererats! If I had to guess, the Wererats were level 6 or so, two rogues and one alchemist. It took me four or five tries to kill them all, and then I tried an additional five times to kill them all without losing any party members.
So basically, the encounter was extremely challenging, yet VERY satisfying. It really brought back memories of Baldurs Gate and Baldurs Gate 2, with how prepared you have to be for difficult encounters, as well as being strategic in your execution.
Smite Evil is fantastic in Pathfinder, much better than 3.5e. My Paladin took out one of the Wererats in one hit with a critical using Smite Evil. The blow went straight through the Wererat's DR like a hot knife through butter
They patch this game pretty much every day it seems. It's getting somewhat annoying. Come home, log into steam, wait 10-15 minutes for the patch to download/install. In fact I am currently waiting on a patch to finish downloading right now.You should definitely get it man. The amount of patches they've released so far has been staggering!
The one thing I love about this game is that it's very challenging. You have to think strategically if you want to overcome enemies. There is an encounter I had with a group of Wererats that were very difficult to take down. This is what I said about the encounter on another website:
That's true. But these kinds of games usually always come bug ridden due to the complex game rules and mechanics. It's a good thing that they are furiously working so hard to patch it up and make it better.They patch this game pretty much every day it seems. It's getting somewhat annoying.

This game seems to have more than normal it seems, and they are not all very well tested. One patch bugged out my first character pretty bad with stacking bonuses. I had a DR shield on, and I guess everytime you loaded it would re-add the DR. Needless to say there is a lot of saving and re-loading in these type of games and my character ended up with some crazy high DR. I was wondering why everything started to get super easy. Though, it was helpful on the part where you have to visit a certain fey creature alone . I ended up scrapping that character anyway (because I totally mis-managed my kingdom during Act 2 and it was run completely into the ground).That's true.

Regarding kingdom management...I don't know how far you are but it doesn't really get much better. It's just endless. I came to enjoy it after I go the hang of it, but the artisian quests really get on my nerves after awhile. Trying to claim a land you are exploring or near where current chapter is happening helps some, that way you don't have to go all the way back to the capital. Also you can get teleport circles if your Arcane stat is high enough, which also helps. Or just turn it off all together and focus on the story.ugh i dont like the city building aspect to it....
It takes too long for that part, and your constantly running back to your kingdom every near end of the month so you dont miss any important audiences.
Other then that the game is great, however i think Divinity series is more polished, and the lack of camera rotation makes me want to rage sometimes.
On another note: I love Octavia, she's a bag of laughs in her comments, especially when it comes to kobalds.
Chris Avellone notwithstanding (ugh), Owlcat has a followup title called Wrath of the Righteous. Personally I would like for them to steal some of the better engine features from games like NWN so we can have true 3D all around, pan n scan, the works. BG2 was a product of its time - the map sizes are far far far too small for modern games. The last title that really made advancements for the RPG genre engine-wise in my opinion was Dragon Age: Origins, and that franchise sadly wound up going nowhere.I got it and while I had fun, I didnt love it.
Was just enough like Baldurs Gate but not quite. It does look nice. I hope its success encourages more copycats, but better.
