@Kolanti, thank you for the feedback.

One of the fixes that went into this patch does correct the way companions gain experience when left at the mountain spire. They will now gain experience in the skills which they already have ranks in. This is also weighted by how many ranks they have in each skill. So a companion with a high number of ranks in Lore, will continues to gain experience and ranks in Lore if the as the Player Character gains experience without them in the party.

-------------------

I think there is a global problem with XP.

Exp from trainers are lost for companions stayed at the spire. It's a fact.

Also, if we don't think to return at trainer, certain level can be 2/ 5 or 3 / 5 in dead line for party members, because the levels of trainers deal XP.

Perhaps create a global amount of levels :

level 10 ? 10 x 5 = 50 levels of trainers. Available at all time. Everything is arranged in this case.

Patches are great, thanks guys.

Where would I report a bug found on tyrannygame.com? Who handles the site, Obsidian or Paradox? The bug has to do with character profiles and story moments, which are very cool and I appreciate, but unfortunately aren't working for me. I restarted once on my first play through and having 2 characters named the same is causing major problems with my profile.

Hello @sp3cw4r,

I am sorry that the site is giving you issues. I think the best way to address that issue, is to start a thread on the support forums. If you could include the following information, it would be most helpful:
  1. What is the name of the character(s) that are having this issue?
  2. You said you restarted your first playthrough, did you make a new game from the title screen, or load a save early in the playthrough?
I'll reach out to the appropriate parties when I see your post so we can get started on investigating it.

Thank you,
David

could you please rework the training system, it takes forever to go from 1 spire to another just to retrain my character
i literally spent hours just on loading screens so i could get lore or athletics training for my characters and companions

perhaps add lvls for each level up? that way we dont miss on valuable training and still get a satisfying playthrough

i believe if during the conquest you go to lethians crossing, you make 1 of the armies go and exterminate the bane there
no bane means no problems which in turn means no magebane helm needed and therefore there is nothing for rotomon to steal

Hello @Juhulemand,

The quests you are referencing are not available to players who sided with the Disfavored.

When siding with the Disfavored, they will first task you with ending the Edict of Storms. Based on your decisions to end the edict, you may be sent to the Burning Library by Ashe, in order to end the Edict of Storms.

If you end the Edict of Storms without requiring to go to the Burning Library, you will then be presented with the option of going to Lethian's Crossing or the Burning Library. By choosing Lethian's Crossing, you will be able to do a Disfavored Version of the quests you are talking about ("Blades of Iron").

If you choose to go to the Burning Library, you will not have this option, as you will be sent to the Stone Sea after completing either region for the Disfavored.

If that does not explain the situation on your play through, could you please start a new thread on the support forums and attach a save file for us to look into the issue further?

Thank you,
David

Any chances of changes in the future that will allow you to act as an ally to whoever you choose to support, instead of a servant?

Hi, thanks for the great patch. I made it through the first area of the game with the sound and backround music fine, but when I got to the disfavored camp, the backround music and music on the main menu screen were gone. What could be causing this ? I don't have sound problems with other games.

Thanks.

Fixes always nice.

Any chance of adjusting the training skill gap as mentioned?
it could be solved just by letting all characters place +5 skill levels in any skill they choose instead of having to run constantly to trainers all over the world...and that will also solve the issue of a sidelined companion gaining levels while inactive, but unable to train for those levels as you get locked out the instant you level.

From my point of view of player : best solution.

It's very-very annoying to return each level take (by the fear of missing the moment), sometimes for each character (insane). If we don't do that, a dungeon can blow up 5 levels a training.

Not very pleasant indeed. (Like visiting the 5 spires to take everything, while there are load times... Solution = General Recovery Stock in one shot ? Forging Ingots + Infirmary Ingredient etc. It would be so good)

In the same intention, where pass the training levels of companions stay behind ? Lost forever.

There is 2 experience :

Battle (visibly arranged by this patch)
Trainer. (I'm not sure...)

It is nice that the leveling of chars who are not in your party has been changed.

Regarding trainers, it does not feel good that you should go to a trainer every time you level up, especially for chars who are not in your party because you do not know when they level up. I think this system was takes from Morrowind and Oblivion (did skyrim have trainers?), but those are single player games in an open world, so even if you miss training it is easy to farm skills. In Tyranny the number of enemies is limited, so farming skills is not so easy so each exp you get is more importent.

My suggestion: Make it like arcanum. A char needs a trainer to become apprentice/expert/master level in a skill. Each char can get each training only once. Almost everyone can get apprentice training, expert needs some requirements and for master you need to find a trainer and finish a quest.

I would also like to know if the stat stacking (some skill+ items, KiS armor, . . .) and stat reduction bugs (some players seem to have negative dodge/parry) have been fixed.

+1.

In power tree skills :

armor penetration +4 / -15 % recovery = not stack with spells.

In magic tree skills :

+25 % damage fire/cold/elec = Stack with spells.

----------

What is the logic ?

Absolute non-sense. All powers need to stack to profitability the investment.

First, I was talking about items or that give a bonus and this bonus is aplied several times.

Second, I do not think that everything should stack. Like in PoE, only the strongest bonus/penalty should be applied. Also, weapon talents should only work for weapons (or a specific type of weapons) while magic talents should only work for spells. For example, you can only add one type of elemental damage to a weapon. At the moment you can add all kinds of bonusses from different skill trees to become completely overpowered.
