    It reminds me a lot of Risen, the support mechacnis like people getting annoyed of you entering their rooms. I love it.

    Played for a while, having a blast. 

    Jut like I thought, the game is rough, but has a lot of cool things layed around.
    Made by the same people who also made Gothic.

    Well we don't read every thread and the ones we see may have already been edited. 

    In the whole span of time I have been on these forums I have been warned once that I recall but never banned  {please don't endeavour to ban me now}. I deserved that one but I also got away with some stuff probably because no one reported me. Generally I'd say it is easy to stay within the rules and maintain some respect for the posters here and might I point out the people who post here should not be treated like pariahs, be respectful or at least don't insult them. However there are some rivalries and snarkiness going on and unnecessary rudeness that one can take umbrage too. Just play nice you know it is not that hard or do what @Gdemami does and laugh at everyone.

    Also I don't understand why some of you just don't walk away from a thread when you are losing your temper. I guess being old has its advantages I don't get irritated that easily.

    What the hell... I log in some days and see 4 or 5 peeps just banned and I can't stop thinking "in some dark corner of this site there is a secret thread where people just like fight one another and whoever talks about it gets banned."

    Some of the details the OP includes are a little embellished.



    The OP is definitely a love or hate kind of guy. Mostly hate though so it was nice to see him go overboard in a positive way for a change :)

    The game also can't seem to decide whether it is fantasy or sci-fi.

    Superficially it does seem that way but they do a superb job of mashing the genres together from both, a game play perspective and lore.

    Why things have turned out the way they have in this post-apoc setting not only makes sense but late in the game, once you have figured out the roots of the Cleric's religion it's quite amusing. That twist kind of reminded me of a very, very old scifi award-winning novel, A Canticle for Leibowitz.

    It does a good job of explaining why they play so differently from a philosophical standpoint.

    I honestly wanna murder every last berserker though, because I'm tired of hearing them complain every time I open my inventory/quest log/map.  I know you dislike technology, bro, but I literally can't find your missing buddy without checking my technologically-advanced map! :angry:

    That bezerker quirk in their city is annoying AF :)

    It's nice later on once you've seen the Zerkers in the Domed City and Origin that you're not the only one annoyed by their or any other faction's horseshit and chose to go live somewhere else.

    Not put too much time into it yet - a couple hours or so. 

    The controls, along with combat, don't exactly feel fluid. Something is just a bit off with them. It's not a horrible train wreck, but it doesn't feel like most other 3rd person games.

    That's fair.

    One way of coping with melee is to avoid it. Whichever faction you join there will be a a good ranged alternative. The Cleric's Psi Amp skill, Black Hole, a leveled-up War Bow, or a grenade launcher means your need to melee is almost nil. Black Hole and the grenade launcher both CC as well as do heavy damage... they're almost unfair :) 

    The skill that makes hostile mobs appear as a red blip on your radar makes it so you will hardly ever be surprised by something that is already in melee range. You can't 100% avoid it and will pretty well need to do it when exploring dark building ruins but there is no reason to do it in the open,

    Another option is just figuring out how Elex does its funky melee thing and learn to deal with it. Mobs, at all levels, hit hard so your #1 priority will be avoiding being hit.

    I prefer ranged DPS in pretty well all games so avoiding melee was my go-to option. But I did eventually get the hang of melee too.

    This is a pretty good tutorial:

    HOW TO FIGHT 
    I know I've hyped the game.  So you would think I would sugarcoat the combat. 

    But to be honest, I still find the combat extremally good. 


    Here's why: 
    I'm playing on a keyboard and mouse.  I want my Ranged to be stronger than Melee, but for now I have better melee weapons and more points in melee... Soon I'll be reversing that, but I'm not having any problems despite this. 

    So for melee you have to run around like the video above and avoid attacks more so than most games BECAUSE EVERYTHING ONE TIME HITS HARD.  

    Everything you fight takes a big chunk of your health, everything also leaps and lunges at you aggressively in do so.... If you understand this, it's the first step to EASLY SURVIVING a fight. 
     
    - Using the w,s,a,d keys I'm constantly running then attacking.  I'll have to learn to dodge and parry to enhance this tactic but for now this is working fine for me. 

    - Companions !!!... Their much stronger than I thought !!! 
    I'm finding they can all take a beating (good tanks).  I need to CONSTENTLY let them gain and re-gain agro.  If I cause too much I JET PACK OUT OF THE FIGHT..... This does four things: 
    1) gets me out. 
    2) companion takes over 
    3) allows me to heal with a potion 
    4) During long hard battles, I run far away and "save" when I reach a point that I'm ahead.  Then re-engage as my companion is fighting. 


    Important: 
    I accidently learned a valuable lesion !!! 

    I have a solar powered keyboard that ran out of juice in the middle of battle...…Lucky me, my companion had agro.  THE MONSTER IGNORED ME COMPLEATLY.... I sat here helpless watching my companion hold agro, slow damage over time, and die and respawn a few times and eventually win. 

    Use your companion to it's fullest !!!!! 


    Important: 
    I thought my finisher "Q" was broken...didn't always work... I was out of stamina…. Be aware of your stamina !!! 

    "Hesitate" before using your finisher (can't button mash).  Stamina replenishes very fast.

    I got a temporary ban, I did something I consider minor.  I guess within reason I play the fine line between good and bad too close and their getting sick of it.

    WoW watched a review and checked it out on Steam $19.99 on sale for $14.99 It reminds me of the old Zelda that I miss, only modern.  It's amazing how you can't find things on Steam at random until you type it in search.  Unfortunately I have a long list of games to play, I'll catch it on a future sale, mean time I added it to my wish list. 
    Thanks :)

    I retried Elex again due to this thread (and because I wasted 50 Euroson this game, I know my fault). Lasted about 8 hours and it was the 4th and last time I tried. The combat is still ridiculous but I could probably ignore it, though it is definitely not fun. But what I recognized is that I hate the main character. He should have just been killed by the Berserkers when they picked him up. He is an asshole and I just can't stand playing him. ;)

    Good that you talk about the main character because be honest, I haven't given him a thought until now. I view him as the most NEUTRAL character of any RPG I has ever played.  You could then change him to your liking.

    Many games talk about how your choices and actions effect how the game plays... In almost every case this is debunked by players realizing your tricked into only one outcome regardless. 

    Well, ELEX everything depends on your choice, good, bad, evil and you often PAY A HUGE PRICE.  You can easily NOT get accepted by one of the three factions depending on how much you help another, and how much bad you do within a faction....It seems the berserkers are the hardest to get in. 

    YOU get your decisions thrown in you face for how you help others !  

    You truly mold your personality :)

    I'll bump this. Sorry ! 

    In just a few hours it would be impossible to come to any conclusions about the combat !!!

    You play the role of the legendary Jax, one of the mightiest warriors of the most feared and powerful "race" on the planet, the Albs.

    You pick up Jax's story after his aircraft gets shot down; however for some reason you are now pretty much the weakest lifeform on the planet, barely able to kill a humble rat, and have lost all knowledge of the planet, your background and skills.

    The contradictions and confusion continue to flow - get ready for a heady ride into gaming mediocrity.

    You will be spending the first half of the game running from your shadow or hiding behind your buddy, likely unable to meet the stat requirements for the second level bow/sword for many hours.

    Feel free to loot everything marked "forbidden" even with your buddy in tow; pick up an amazing weapon just sitting around in the first shop you walk into (don't worry you won't be able to use it for another 20 hours, but it should be good when you finally can!).

    Get ready for mmo fetch quests on steroids as you try and find 50 plants here, deliver a message for so and so there, etc. What about that ol open world exploring? Sure, fight that critter for 5 minutes, kill it with 50 arrows get your 5XP and then go pay 500 elexit (gold) to restock arrows. How about taking on that boss monster roaming around 10 metres away from a farm? Lure it to the workers for some help (getting all the workers killed in the process) manage to kill it and bag your 50XP!

    Don't worry just craft your character! Oh what was that? Strength doesn't actually mean "strength", dex not really "dexterity"? Your stats are just mini "levels" that determine what weapon you can wield. They have no bearing on anything else. I'm level 9 atm and I just got enough stat points to wield the second level bow- 12 hours into the game. 

    Oh and there is so much more that could be written about this but I wouldn't want to spoil it for you.

    On the positive side some of the character interactions are interesting.

    Sounds like you haven't discovered the wonders of Elex potions yet.

    One type gives you 2 stat points to spend on Dex, Str, etc. and another type gives you a skill point. I personally didn't find a great need for the skill point one but the other one helps you qualify for better gear much faster. You'll need alcohol to make them (after you learn the crafting skill of course) so when you have your own little village the first improvement you'll want to make is a trader because he has about 100 alcohol I believe that he replenishes overnight. You'll probably want to train pick-pocket too so you can afford all that alcohol you'll be buying :)

    There are also multiple recipes for making the same end product, some much better on mats than others. You do start the game knowing how to make Elex potions and you'll find better recipes for it along the way. One thing though: You want to keep one copy of any recipe you find in your inventory and only sell dupes since you don't "learn" them. It needs to be in your inventory to craft the thing. Pissed me right off when I learned that the hard way :)

    And about quests...

    Yeah there are a lot of lame fedex quests early on but they do get better and much more interesting as you level up.

    Even when I was at your level I decided to first off prioritize the one that gets you the Zerker companion - the murder investigation. And when I was done with that I decided to follow up on a note I filched from a table that takes you to an island down south.

    That starts a series of quests that will eventually get you an in with Elex's own thieve's guild, the Claws... although you'll get no in game hints on where and when you'll want to use the mysterious reward that the girl you rescued from the island gives you. You'll just come across it later on probably long after you've forgotten about it.

    So yeah... run of the mill starter quests when you're a noob and much more interesting ones later on when you can handle it.

    :) 
    I'll not argue none of this, 
    Just have a few bullet points good and bad, being honest: 

    -Contradiction's and confusion's, 
    I would say contradiction's "no", your constantly struggling between doing a faction right or wrong.  You have many options to do underhanded things or follow the rules of each of the 3 factions.  It's like real life where the boss wants you to do something and the workers have other intentions. 
    I would say confusion's "yes", the game is trying to be like real life such as above. It does somewhat a good job of it with optional long dialogue if you care to lesion to it (your choice, it can be skipped).  The problem is to pull off real life it would have to be even longer and that would be boring to mimic real life.  What makes it confusing is the player want's to make decisions the will benefit the player (you) AND THATS NOT ALWAYS CLEAR. 

    Loot, 
    Same is all games, you have to pick up everything.  Mostly junk with an epic now and then.  Their is good news.  It makes picking it up extremely easy with the mouse key and standing in one place you can pick most everything fast, then sell it quickly....  This shouldn't even be a topic because it's the same unspoken of all games, yet done better.  I don't hate the looting in this game.  

    Character building, 
    Or craft your character as you say.  I like their style of str. dex. con. doesn't mean strength but points spent allows you to buy abilities and equip weapons and armor.  All PB games follow this formula and it works well.  However, it's wayyyyy to slow in this game !... This make a great idea into a bad one.  It works but they over did it this time and I don't like it. 

    Fetch quest on steroids, 
    Again like EVERY OTHER GAME.  I'll be honest, I don't see any way around it.  Even Fallout 4 eventually falls into the same trap only worst with all it's faction base running around.  Many games try using dynamic event's, but this turns BORING just as fast.  It's a problem that plagues all RPG's.... Were just bringing this topic to the surface.   
    I find myself persevering through every RPG, most I never complete because of this.  

    I'm arguing your points, this is true !!!!….. But I can't explain away the basic nature of ALL RPG'S.  If you want to play an RPG you will have all of this.
     

    I must say I love this game, it's very immersive.  But Character building is slow.  Slow and boring.  I think because it's a very large game and they need to draw this aspect out.

    @YashaX ;
    You got me thinking about my frustrations.  I have only one, but it's a big one.  
    I'm always honest and never sugar coat.

    I posted this on Steam:
    I'm level 19, it took me a long time to get here. 
    When can I equip all the beautiful weapons the game is giving me ?
    Attribute and skill points are terribly slow. 
    I have a huge amount of great useful weapons that can not be equipped. I'm trying VERY hard to allocate points into strength and dexterity, but no dice.  As hard as I try, I'm still only playing with tier 2 weapons, barley above base beginner ones.  Crafting ?... Forget it !… By crafting, it just makes my weapons unusable because they now need points allocated into it, same as the HUGE amount I have in my inventory.
    On a good note…as I get higher in level I will eventually have points that will allow me to equip everything all at once, but mid game is torture to become powerful. 
    It wouldn't be bad, but I feel stagnated in power for so long now. Yet I could work on lock picking, pick pocket and dialogue… I would like to feel at least a little stronger.
    Lower the requirement's for weapons so I could equip at least something !
    I LOVE this game, I really do !..... But make this part fun too ! 

    Late for work !

    I cannot stand point allocation in games,terrible design.
    It only works in the character creation screen beyond that it should be an EASY design,you learn things by using similar items.
    How any developer thinks allotting points is immersive and realistic is beyond me,i don't need cheap carrots to immerse me in a game,simply giving me good content and fun abilities and lots of choice and discovery is all i need.

    Where do these points come from,they just magically appear out of thin air?I need ideas to make sense,that has ALWAYS been one my biggest peeves in games,especially if i am playing a game that is SUPPOSE to be immersive.I don't need immersion in a game of Chess or Yahtzee but when comes to having a Character in a role play design,yes i need to see a game making sense.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I did that zerker quest, I thought it was pretty good and Duras is such an awesome guy.

    The main conundrum I'm having atm is whether to join the zerkers or the clerics. I love the zerker armor and overall just like the faction and people in it better; meanwhile I can barely stand the clerics (I feel like puking whenever any of them start talking) but their skills look so much better than anything zerkers get.

    That said I do like the cleric companion, its weird though because he doesn't sound like a cleric at all.

    There's more to that story :)

    Elex is kind of weird in that all 3 factions that you can join have glaring flaws: the Zerker's technophobia and especially their constant complaints whenever you look at your map in town are annoying AF. The Cleric techno religion is also a big turn off and the Outlaws are just assholes.

    I agree that the Zerkers are the least objectionable but when all was said and done I just joined whichever I could use for my own benefit without buying into their BS. Going to the Domed City (and even more so once you find Origin) will just reinforce that many of the best people in the game took the same route you're about to take and rejected all 3 factions. Just use whichever fits your purpose best.

    I went with the Clerics on my first play through and that worked well from a game play perspective since their ranged super attack, Black Hole, doesn't need ammo. You just need to chug the mental energy potions that are easy to make in quantity.
