They are also scaled to your level upon recruitment, and you can assign their talents and skills from level 1 as you see fit. All this ties in nicely with the generally expanded character variety.
Finally, it should probably be mentioned that you can import your endgame save from PoE1 into Deadfire. This mostly results in a bunch of cameos or unique dialogue lines referencing the first game, but I never noticed anything major that would arise from this. Though it might be because my import from PoE v1. It was chaotic, unreadable, mechanically questionable, too easy and, most importantly, boring as hell.
Has Deadfire done something to improve this? It still remains very frantic, primarily due to the rampant proliferation of awesome buttons. As you might have guessed, the increase in the number of active abilities for player characters is also true for enemies, so most fights devolve into everything and everyone firing off a dozen auras, area blasts, debuffs and multishots within seconds, although the in-built combat speed slider helps a great ton to contain this chaos.
It could just be a bit easier to spot, but I digress. Melee engagement has a twofold effect on combat confusion in Deadfire, although fortunately its prevalence has been toned down compared to PoE1 which folks say is a primary thing inherited from later PoE1 patches.
Only fighter-types and big scary monsters have access to it by nature, other combatants gain it through active abilities or by wielding shields. Plus, abilities to teleport away or otherwise safely break engagement are more widely available as well. Whatever makes the fights less static already constitutes a huge improvement in my book. It retains all the flaws of its predecessor — mainly overlapping flashy effects that all look the same — and then ups the ante. As mentioned above, there are now generally more effects going off in all fights, and they all meld into an incomprehensible blob of colours.
Second, status effect icons next to character portraits are microscopic and simply impossible to read without inspecting their pop-up tooltips. Fourth, now every status effect applied in combat briefly shows its name on the screen, white for positive, red for negative. Inspirations cancel afflictions and grant immunity to them — so applying insightful to a character would also remove blinded and block any other Perception debuff for a time.
Also, many of the afflictions, especially the top tier ones, are properly dangerous, meaning that a stun is a stun, while mind control on a buffed fighter can wreck your backline within moments.
Mainly because there are so many status effects assigned to so many abilities and so many different enemies, trying to keep up with them is an exercise in futility, especially when combined with the general unreadability of the game. This is a big shame actually, because the way effects can counter one another introduces a lot of mechanical complexity that is wasted on the RTWP pandemonium.
If the game were turn-based, or at least much less chaotic, this could potentially be a very cool mechanic. Usually it works just fine. The good news is that Deadfire handles these rather well for a while. Trying to tackle them and winning or running away after your face is repeatedly bashed in is admittedly pretty fun. Foes like skellingtons are immune to piercing damage, dryads sorry, pwgra are resistant to agility afflictions meaning they are always reduced by 1 tier while not-Polynesian ettins sorry, eoten are weak to intellect afflictions so they are increased by 1 tier.
Not to mention that they leave either junk or no loot at all, so avoiding them is not only possible, but also encouraged.
You could even say that the trash fights in this game work almost exactly as they should — they are obstacles that punish you for having skills too low to bypass them without exposing yourself to an inconvenience. Sacre bleu, a random encounter! Defeating a tough encounter, no matter where you are and what your party is, always just brings you back to square one, which is having all your stuff recharged and ready for the next slaughter.
Never do you have to consider going through a series of fights with progressively dwindling resources, or sacrificing one of your assets to win, which is a great shame because, for example, the aforementioned ghoul death pit illustrates it well what Deadfire could have been.
Not to mention that the encounter finds you in the middle of a fairly big and interesting dungeon, the exploration of which would have profited from draining your resources. The level cap in Deadfire is 20, and around level 11 you reach a magical turning point where you can faceroll anything in your way, except for a handful of end-game fights, mostly against vampires sorry, fampyrs.
But will there be challenge inside? But finally we have the cherry on top. If you hate having to face even a modicum of challenge and the awesome buttons at your disposal are not enough to get you through the night, Obsidian are happy to supply you with the Empower function. Empower can be used once per encounter and a few times per rest by any character to either recharge half its spell and ability points or use one ability as if it were cast by someone 5 levels higher.
Typically this means wiping out entire mobs with one empowered fireball. I recommend not using the Empower function. The most significant thing that sets the game apart from its predecessor, and possibly its biggest improvement, is the fact that the world is fully open nearly from the start.
After leaving the starter island, you get your own ship and can go island hopping at your leisure around the entire archipelago, sinking landlubbers, looking for trouble and accumulating many shekels from a multitude of points of interest strewn around the overland map.
You can get crewmembers for it that boost stuff like travel speed or cannon accuracy, but the entire thing pales in comparison to more dedicated naval RPGs like Sea Dogs, where the crewmen were more fleshed out and came with their own ups and downs.
Close encounters of the third kind. The crown jewel though are the sea battles. Engaging in combat with another ship starts a text adventure with various commands, like speed adjustments, turning, firing guns, etc.
If ships move into direct contact, actual combat begins. Fortunately, getting big guns and just jibing all the time to fire them in turns is usually enough to send anyone to hell quickly and move on. The archipelago is huge and has a lot of varied places to check, from native villages and jungles through pirate forts to spooky isles overrun by the undead, and more.
You even get to name uncharted islands yourself. Their sizes differ a lot, from just two or three rooms with angry yokels, to bigger ones that span multiple floors or maps.
Every place you go to is also ripe with text adventures, which are another strong part of Deadfire. Use an item to do things; 3.
Me and Mrs Jones (TV Series – ) - IMDb
The hints about locked options can and should be disabled. Although in the case of text adventures failing will sometimes result in both an injury and combat start, so I guess at least it matters for a brief span.
The same is true for traps placed around some areas, since traps in Deadfire also only apply injuries. They can get more interesting if set up within combat encounters, but instances of that are way too rare.
Things start to get a bit less nice when you drift away from exploration and start questing. The size of the world and its settlements, particularly Neketaka, which is an Athkatla-sized main city that takes a ton of time to check out in full, means there are many side quests to tick off. The vast majority of them are unfortunately of the FedEx variety where you go from place A to place B and win, but a few are more expansive and involved.
The premises of these quest chains can be interesting, and some are even interconnected, but their execution leaves a lot to be desired, for multiple reasons.
The only tangible negative consequences I can think of are companions leaving you based on certain decisions. Much worse though, all the quests more complex than FedEx are terribly, terribly broken. There are various other problems with quests in Deadfire that apply to both minor and major ones, though. Probably the most aggravating is how the quest designers love to waste your time by putting quest-related characters behind numerous loading screens.
A typical Deadfire quest will have you go to a district of Neketaka, inside a building and upstairs to talk with a quest giver, then outside again, to another district, another building, upstairs again to read one dialogue, and then back once more to the damn quest giver through all that shit to cash in.
Of course, none of them ever have time limits too, which would have worked great to address the problems of resting, but oh well. Unfortunately, you never meet his cousin, Blwgras the Musician.
However, the most insulting of the bunch are probably the companion quests. Each companion has a quest, and I swear they are all the same and equally half-assed. All of them more or less employ the following formula: The above is true not just of companions however. Though they are certainly better done than in PoE1, the factions here are still nothing more than glorified quest dispensers. Also, even if you go into negatives with one of those other factions, the consequences are non-existent.
By angering the Neketaka underworld, all that did to me was block one street merchant who sold nothing but garbage. My gooseflesh is certainly raised. She also puts a not-geas on you, more or less forcing you to go on this wild goose chase lest you be annihilated.
