Skye is a mage so I'm not going to run into another hopeless edition of Death Metal Arena. I would want a full melee team against a mob of Living Armour though. I'm a Warrior myself.

I'm switching out all rusted weapons as they make BBI a joke.

I'm wearing my outfit I had through all of stage 1 plus 2 Bloody Knuckles (I can one shot wolves again!). Calista got all her goldforged equivalents of her stage 1 outfit. Changed haircuts for a slight change of scenery.

I'm not taking along any items other than one elite lantern for my Arisen, so the majority of my pictures don't end up very dark like during Bitterblack Breakout. One Fiend-Luring Essence, Veteran's Periapts, some Oil Flasks and all my Bait Meat. No damage increasing periapts until Daimon 2.0.

As with Bitterblack I will reload if I lose a support pawn. I'll pull Calista out of the nearest riftstone ahead of us if I lose her. So no backtracking there. No Liftstones, no shortcuts.

I'm ready.

Do I need to redo the gold forged gear? That's fair, but I waa hoping the Gloves of Might would be a big difference maker. Perhaps down the line they will be.



How about the goldforged rusted bow, is she cool to use that or not yet?


no your good with the gold forged gear and you may use classic DLC armor as well since you supplied the gear for your pawn to help with the challenge. HOWEVER you may NOT use Rusted weapons for the pawns or arisen they must use the Tier 1 weapons i listed.

I'm switching out the rusted bow myself, no worries. Any other changes you wanted to make, Jules?

Heh, I just hired her and didn't even notice. It's sunny skies in Gransys again for Durske and Arisen as we just beat up some God Emperor who was screaming about "fists" and "around the world", but whatever...she's vapor now and we've come full circle to start on Hard mode.


I checked and indeed not a single screenshot or memory of mine has her doing a Dragon's Maw. Godammit. :v

Good luck with 2.0 _ard. I'm still trolling the Everfall, but should be ready to progress in a couple of days.

That fight in the Chamber of Fate with the lich, gorechimera, chimeras and hellhounds was a real slugfest with this gear - I spent a good chunk of it scraping my arisen off the floor (is there a quick way of getting up as a warrior? I miss instant reset).

Skye's current setup is pretty much what I was going to head into BBI with - if you'd like me to switch anything up, let me know.

Somehow she still had Burst Stike that I havent used in forever, and Shield Drum. The game defaults to certain skills whenever you start a new game I guess.

Skye's looking pretty good, Patrick. Gear isnt going to help much at this point, so Ill take it. Calista has GF gear on now and some actual skills, if you want to update her on your side. You must have been playing with a badly nerfed Calista all this time too. :v

As for playing a warrior, you just stay on your feet. Fights like those either you stick to the big enemies, or dash around and jump attack.
