    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.
    Did you join a faction early or wait? I've been playing Prey, but the comments here have piqued my interest to check some things out. Also, it had some technical issues through SteamPlay that have now been resolved so it will run better.

    While it's not really a fair bar to compare it to imo, and it doesn't diminish what I find is a solid RPG, Elex did remind me of how well-oiled and put together the combat in Witcher 3 actually is.  There's no animation lock that prevents one from dodging/side-stepping, and no stamina bar for parrying or swinging.  All in all, Witcher 3 combat is a pretty good balance between RPG and action imo.

    Yeah I liked Witcher combat better too.

    There's a bit of a "cheat" in Elex although I suppose, it's not really a cheat if it's an official difficulty option: you can turn stamina usage for combat actions off altogether. It's there to make combat easier but the main reason I did it is to speed melee combat up without needing to micromanage the energy like that guy on the tutorial video I posted using his jet pack to regen, No need to do that if you just turn its use in combat off.

    Melee is quicker and more fluid if you do that.

    In the beginning I thought my keyboard was hesitating, however I really knew a keyboard wouldn't act that way so it had to be the game itself.  Then I realized it was "stamina usage and button mashing".  I wasn't following my own advice mentioned in the OP.  Strike and wait !!! 

    Then I put a point into LESS STAMINA USAGE, made a world of difference.  Now I'm able to button mash more, much more.  Later I can put one more point, but that's high cost and will come way later.  I try and avoid using turn off stamina in options, but I could understand making the game enjoyable too.  

    EVERYONE PLEASE REMEMBER, two tips:
    - Settings>difficulty>close combat focus, set to manual.   
    - Find sunglasses early ( many YouTubes on locations).  
    Or at least understand both are available. 


    I'm now level 19 
    The game and everything about it is becoming better, much better.  
    However "better" is subjective... Some could call the beginning HARDER, ANNOYING, CHALLENGING or BROKEN. 

    Its designed this way.  It's where the conflict is with all PB games.  They develop their games with very strict guide lines. They rely on word of mouth for people to figure this out.  

    This is where I do blame PB. If they do want to play different, they should some how inform the public SOME HOW, instead of taking so much backlash.  


    Something else I find very important:  
    Pick a combat style in the beginning and STICK TO IT !!!
    -Melee....remember stamina 
    -Ranged 
    -Heavy 
    Attribute and Ability points are extremally tight in the beginning.  No wiggle room.  You must decide.  If a player were to apply both, the player will be weak.  ONLY ONE STYLE. 

    Later when your truly comfortable and feel strong, and many points are spent in one, your able to pick a sub-style and make that equally strong too.  


    This is my second PB game (gothic 3)… If I didn't already know this strict rule, I would never had figured this out !!!!…. I blame PB.  

    How is a player to know this ?.... Even for the most intelligent player, it would appear to spread points out !  


    It's still a great RPG.  It's been a long time since spent so much time being so intrigued with everything about a game.

    @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 !


    Yes, the character progression system is not very enjoyable.

    It's still a great RPG.  It's been a long time since spent so much time being so intrigued with everything about a game.
    Difficulty,
    As I hit level 20 I was able to increase my str. and dex. to where I could purchase 2 of 3 in Combat Melee Weapons Ability.  Also with the increase of str. and dex. I was able to equip a much stronger one hand weapon at the same time.... This made a world of difference.  I'm able to go through trash mobs much easer. 

    I guess I reached the point where everyone talks about level 20 being where you can venture the world easer (standard talk about the game).  Up to this point I must say it was "enjoyable" where many bash the game.    Right now it turned even more enjoyable because now I can challenge many of the bosses of the game.  It sucked having to go around them, knowing I was passing the treasures they were protection.

    Last night I had two epic battles.  One to control a farm over ran with many beast where I had to jump out of the fight and on to roof top to heal many times.  Another where I needed to kill a boss NPC and take control of a base.  Both were very different fights and a lot of fun.

    With better Melee Weapons I can now craft gems for sockets to make them stronger, was unable to do this with trash weapons. 

    It's like the game changed for the better yet again :) 



    Now I'm working on increasing Archery to bring it up to speed with Melee.  But this is against the game's focus of increasing only one style.  It would be smart to continue making Melee more powerful.  But still I want to have fun with both. 

    With this comes more good news:
    Easy, normal, difficult and Ultra.  I'm playing on "normal" instead of ramping to "difficult".  I'll keep it where it is and have fun with a combination of fighting styles. 

    Now that I think about it. I must increase Archery.  I'm unable to take on a large robot without Ranged weapon's.  It's the end of Act 1 for the main mission's.  Robots are still hard.  The ability point to fight them is very expensive. 

    One thing I never mentioned "Grenades" are POWERFUL.  Use them, it's like a get out of jail free card.... Sadly it doesn't work on the fast moving robot. 


    This game is truly amazing :)

    As a completionist it would take about 70 hours to beat the game. You can easily do 120 hours if you let yourself get lost in the game.

I was able to equip a much stronger one hand weapon at the same time.... This made a world of difference.  I'm able to go through trash mobs much easer. 

    This happened for me at level 13 after I joined the cleric faction, thanks to the combination of three factors:
    1) I was able to pick up the powerful black hole spell from the clerics.
    2) I started using a plasma rifle, which does similar damage to a bow and knocksdown enemies or stuns robots and is easier to meet the ability requirements for.
    3) I got another cleric ability which boosts ranged damage by 50 (more than doubling my damage).

    There was basically no way to develop my character from levels 1 through 12 (about 15 hours playtime). Then in the space of one level (12 to 13),  I more than doubled my damage and gained a ranged aoe cc with strong damage. I went from hiding behind my companion and running away from most things to single-handedly taking out groups of strong enemies. I do not understand what the developer was thinking. 

    Despite that I am still enjoying the game, it has sucked me into its world :)

    Best story element in the game will come later on when you discover the roots of the Cleric's religion.

    IT GETS EVEN BETTER !

    These people, Piranha Bytes, their humble genius.  This game has so many hidden secrets, yet you wouldn't even realize the depth they put into this game. 

    Heres what I'm talking about now: 
    Thievery.... I spent 2/3  points in pickpocket and having a ball, it's not only for picking pockets but sneaking around too.  Sure many games have this but this is lifelike and real.  People watch you carefully.  You can't pickpocket in front of them or with ANYONE ELSE looking in your direction and you have to be fast. 

    Sleep until midnight and MOST go to bed, sometimes several people in the same room then pick their pockets... Be careful NEVER PICK TWICE or you'll wake them unless you have that perk.  Guards are up at night and can easy walk in on you, or worst they look in the windows ! 

    Hay, since your at it clean out their house too, rob everything.  I'm getting extremely cool stuff, lots of money and even a quest. 


    I know what your thinking no big deal, lots of games have this even Skyrim.... What you don't understand are all the rules you have to figure out (save until then). 

    It's truly realistic, and had no idea this game had such a deep mini-game.



    Since I figured this out, I'll spend 3/3 points and since I belong to the Berserker's they have another stealth ability... this I'll have to see :)

    I don't just read the reviews on Steam.  I also have a tendency to analyze them a bit.  What I've found interesting is that most of the positive reviews have between 40 and 150 hours in the game from a few from months ago that say things like

    Currently like 40 hours in i believe and the game is amazing. 

    But they posted the review at the end of October and have 52 hours.

    How amazing was it if you were 40 hours in on October and only played another 12 hours?  Is it just that short, or do the shortcomings of the game eventually wear you down and you quit?

    But I decided to buy it anyway as an old gothic fan and I was not disappointed it is a 
    M A S T E R P I E C E

    63.4 hours on record.  Review from October.

    This is probably the first RPG in a while that had me going past the first several hours. Instead of a cookie-cutter, procedurely generated open pit of mediocrity, what you get instead is a lovingly handcrafted world.

    If you want to get caught up in a gripping story with many sides to it. Then there are worse options than Elex. Give it a try.

    13.2 hours on record.  Review from October.

    With three playable factions, a huge open world, punishing combat and tons of quests I expected to see glowing reviews but with more around the hours that the top reviews of say, Witcher III, has.

    Most of the top reviews on Witcher III have well over 200 hours into the game.

    The point I'm trying to make is that it seems like people are in love with the idea of the game for a while, but don't stick around to keep playing it for very long.  So there's something that pushes them away around the 150 hour mark at the upper end for most people.

    Witcher 3 is a much, much longer game and it's also quite the high bar for any other story based RPG to meet for anyone who plays them for the story. These kinds of games are not really all that re-playable once you know how the story goes since that is the main hook. 60-100 hours for this one is a reasonable estimate for the average gamer. It can be rushed much faster than that and you can also spend much more time in it if you want to explore every nook cranny of the map.

    IMO, W3 is well deserving the "masterpiece" rating. Elex is merely very good :)

    I went for the Platinum trophy on PS4--which wasn't easy at all--and it took me about 80 hours. So if you're skipping silly trophies but still would want to 100% the contents then it should take about 60 hours. My mate is 120 hours in but he has played it rather relaxed.

    I don't really look at hours meters in any game.  I sometimes open windows and study things for a long time with my feet up on that table.  In this case since dialog is completely optional I may or may not care about a plot depending on my mood at the time. 


    Their was once a topic here about getting sick of games, 
    The guy asked if anyone abruptly gets sick of a game.  In other words, one day your just having fun then out of no where you get sick of it... The feeling just hits you like a ton of bricks.  I thought I was alone in this.  Come to find out it happened to the OP and many others agreed.

    It's not even the games fault... The feeling just hits !!!

    I love ELEX, I would guess I've played it longer than each of the thee times I played Skyrim, and the two times I've played The Witcher 3.  Fallout 4 however captivating, I could get sick of it real fast for some reason I can't explain.  It never grabbed me.

    My header was "best rpg ever".... honestly its about equal to Skyrim and the Witcher 3 BUT for different reasons that can't be put into words.

    THANK GOD FOR ALL 3 !!

    The feeling of fun often depends on my mood.  Adding Vanilla World of Warcraft to the list.  At times I'll get sucked in deeply for weeks or months... then out of no place I can't stand it.  I'll actually hate it.



    As years go by with playing computer games, my temperament is getting shorter in general.

    When I found out you could turn stamina off in the difficulty settings that's just what I did.  The game is fun and I guess I'll be that guy, I actually like this combat better then the combat in Witcher.  Witcher combat isn't bad it just feels like it was made for a gamepad.  Still looking forward to playing the other factions.

    I agree on some level. Elex is great, not masterpiece but really, really good. And i first did hate the combat.. until i learned it! :D I have over 60 hours in and i havent finished it yet... over lvl 30. But im kinda stuck in one quest, since i cant seem to kill one monster that i need to advance in the main quest line... so there's that :\

    the best way to kill a troll is to FLAME ON! ...or with acid...

    Ah yes that one. Depending on when you go to the Outlaw fort you can be pretty low level for that quest. The first one with Nasty is easy enough but that one can be tough. You should be fine now that you're 30+ if you have good ranged damage.

    And you're right that's keeping you from the follow-up quest which is a big deal in the main plot line.
