Avadon 3: Torment Difficulty
Posted 14 September 2016 - 08:35 PM Avadon 3: Torment Difficulty
I ask because I always play Spiderweb games on torment and would much prefer it if Jeff started focusing on things like friendly fire and other tactics type remedies to increase difficulty, rather than just endless hitpoint bloat. I'm a total difficulty masochist, but even I admit that playing the Avernum remakes on torment can get downright absurd when you find yourself beating away on a trash mob of rats for 5 minutes straight because their resistances are so high.....only to encounter 20 more of that same mob of rats before exiting what ever dungeon you're in.
Thus far, Avadon 3 doesn't seem to have that problem, but I'm pretty early in the game.

I couldn't see a real difference between hard and torment difficulties in the Demo part. There probably is an increase in monster health, but it isn't as bad as the multipliers in the old Avernum games. Mostly the difference is increased attacks by boss monsters. Scripted boss monsters seem to be immune to stun and slow effects or at least the scripted attacks override their status.
The fact that I could complete the game on torment with a solo tinkermage means the game is somewhat easier than Avadon 2. There are only 3 fights that I couldn't do at the end and two were because of stun attacks that lasted several rounds and one where even with maximum evasion the minions had 12% miss chance before using blessing crystal to make it 22%.
Only ones that I couldn't do alone were:
Friendly fire is the major difference and caused me to reload when I killed a party member because I wasn't paying attention to the position before clicking.
The hardest fight in the first zone is Vid. Then it gets easier until you reach the Four Circles to complete the Demo. However the first time through the game these fights are almost as hard on normal difficulty. But I found that having the right scarabs can make the biggest difference.
