I stand corrected. Really starting to enjoy this game.

As some of you might remember, this game got me seething with rage.
I found no way to progress the story (since I didn't do the second pawn guild mission) and wandered around aimlessy doing board-missions that were waaaay too hard for my character.

I complained here, and some of you actually encouraged me to continue playing. So I found out a bit more about the game, fixed myself a vanilla DD save file and restarted the game with extra stuff that has come handy. :)

I am currently enjoying the heck out of this game!!! :D

I regurarly update my pawns and keep my team balanced. (Being M.Knight myself, with main pawn offensive mage. I have a medic and ranged pawn.)

Good challenge and lots to do. :)

Thanks for keeping me playing. :)

Good that you are no longer complaining. You may now close this topic as it no longer has use.

Friends,

As rpg's go, this is in the upper half of them. There is not alot of depth, but some of the boss fights, and the semi boss fights are fun. The climbing up the backs of critters is just great. many of the fights feel epic.

not alot of depth, but the renting of friends pawns, adds another element. A good game. Maybe not a GOTY, but still a very good game.

Glad your having fun.

That is great to hear TC, and I am thrilled to hear you enjoying the game.
And thanks for posting and letting us know.

Also...
You will still run into some problems, as some quests are down-right boring and mundane. But the game does get much better as you progress.
It's unfortunate that the game offers lame quests, but it makes up for it with adding more variety to dungeons, caverns and locals to explore.
DD is not a perfect game, but it is better than some give it credit for.

I'm really having a blast. Reached Lv.30 with MK.
Just completed Ser Maximillans quests, and killed the damn pestering Griffin outside Gran Soren.
Man, that was intense and really fun! :D
The boss music is so great!

Before meeting with the duke, I was thinking of clearing all the escort missions... man they are boring. Just did the Mercedes one, 3 more to go... UGH!

Game is perhaps getting a bit too easy now, I think. Hopefully I'll meet new and harder enemies.
Still have'nt taken on the dragon outside Shadow fort.
Cyclops and Chimeras die easily now. :)

Eternal Ferrystone makes this game so much more enjoyable.

Just an FYI...
While there are some really boring and mundane quests in Dragon's Dogma, but when you get to New-game +, they become less of a hassle. Mainly because you will know what to expect, and can plan accordingly. Where this manifests itself in one way is how you will be able to put down multiple teleport crystals (for a total of 8 - i think ?) in just about any area you want (with some exceptions)...which means that the next time you play through the game, you can just teleport to close proximity, and the NPC will just teleport with you.

Of course, you sound fairly early in the game still, so it may not be apparent yet...but you will find more teleport crystals in the game, and can pick them up and place them in other areas, to make teleportation easier. This will save you lots of time in subsequent play-throughs.

And don't worry, the game will pick up a bit in difficulty once you beat the main boss Dragon (its not the end) and open up the everfall area that contains multiple dungeons to explore...and is especially more difficult when you travel to BitterBlack isle.

And the Drake outside the Shadow fort is pretty tough, but as long as you carry enough consumables (health & stamina), it should be no problem...just a bit long and drawn out. But it will be epic nonetheless...and it is but one of many Dragons you will face in the game. There are many more in the everfall section of the game. One example is the UR Dragon (undead Dragon) is intense. You will not get to kill it in one go, but all the damage you do is cumulative, so you basically keep going back to the same room, and it will re-appear. Keep fighting it until it dies. That is one epic battle.

If you want to see what the UR Dragon is like, here is a video link (its just a trailer, there are no spoilers)...
