Debating not bothering now, I won't replay this game if I won't feel challenged.

Assassin was at one point the absolute best vocation in the game, in its vanilla version.

With Dark Arisen they nerfed the things that made it so ridiculously OP, yet it's still arguably the second most powerful vocation in the game.

I don't think it ever does but the combat is SO GOOD. Loved my time with it, I recommend playing it.

I found her!

Had to log into my ancient photobucket account but I did in fact save the screens of my og assassin!

So glad I found these as I'll be able to recreate her much easier. :D


Here's some five-year-old compressed ps3 captures

Kinda. Level 2 Bitterblack items can be about as good as Ur Dragon items, and Level 3 items are better. But level 3 Bitterblack items are like how like Ur Dragon items were in the original release where once you start grinding them out you've already cleared the hardest challenges the game has to offer.

I finished the game on hard and the main story doesn't get hard until the very last boss which is a challenging fight. Post game and BBI are hard.

Aesthetically speaking is subjective
Stat wise yes.

that's one of the coolest thing I love about the game tho
at some point you stop caring about your stats and focus purely on looks
the catch is that you have to explore the entire world to be able to obtain every piece of clothing.

same here , I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to this.

I highly recommend you to write down the stats once satisfied -launch the game and watch the opening cinematic
-sometimes you character might look completely off from the character select screen, the in game cinemas will give you a better idea of what to fix.

Vaseline factor aside XD

Assassin is the only true answer. Assassins unlock a skill that boosts your stats to absurd level when you play the game without a party. When I unlocked it I soloed the entire game including dlc without too much trouble besides the final boss in the dark arisen content

Weirdly I actually enjoyed the game a lot more without a party

It's the only way to go if you roll assassin. I loved my main pawn but solo'ing is such a fun way to play the game at higher levels.

Yes but Autonomy is an augment if I'm not mistaken, meaning any vocation can use it once unlocked.

That's not to say Assassins aren't absurdly powerful, but I don't think its as easy to decide whose the top between MA and Assassin as it was in vanilla DD.

Nope. The weapon linked to the skills determines the power of the attacks. You shoot the Magic Bow, you get the attack power of the bow. You cast the spells with the staff, you get the staffs attack power.

Luckily they nerfed that ability by a ton.

It used to increase strength by 70%, so in combination with other augments you could get a ridiculous 500% strength or even more.

In Dark Arisen it only increases strength 20%, and there is hard limit of 180% strength even if your combined augments would mathematically make it higher.

I really like Assassin versatility (being able to equip 12 skills and 4 weapon types, including the best sniping ability, explosive area of effect, counter moves, perfect blocks, climbing, etc) so I'm glad it isn't super OP like before.

Got the game early thanks to Best Buy being GOAT for preorders. The game is so fun and so bizarre. Playing it again five years later, I feel like it might have influenced open world console games much more than it's been given credit for. I'm so happy this got a current gen console release.

If you haven't played the PC version before, I would say this. You can easily get over a hundred hours out of the game.

It's an item called fairy stone and it allows you to travel back to the main hub castle,

All in due time.
