Question for those who have the game. Is the RE6 demo on the disk or is it a DLC code?

You also can't use it until September-ish IIRC from the sticker. Pretty pointless if you ask me.

I don't seem to be earning very many Rift Crystals at all, so if anyone wants to help out and take my Pawn for a spin...his name's Valen, level 35 warrior.....

sorry to bump the thread again, but does dragons dogma come with an online pass, or do you need one to use the trade pawn options

Anyone that's played both this and KoA..thoughts on which one is better? Both look kickass but my gaming time is too limited to play both anytime soon.

really getting frustrated....fighting the iron golem in witchwood, with the disks (which are immune to magic) you have to destroy to kill it, and since one is in a tree over the stream I can't make a dent in that last disk. Magic archer, along with my pawns (fighter and two mages). Things like this frustrate me so badly.

OK, so I defeated the dragon, and thought that would be the end of the game. How long does the game continue after killing him? Also see things about NG+, does that option become available after finishing this post dragon stuff?

OK, so I got the twenty items needed to I guess really finish the game, but wondering if anyone has any suggestions on things I should acquire before finishing and starting NG+? Like weapons, armor sets, etc? My toon is a magic archer and my pawn is fighter/warrior.

I had no idea about dragonforging, so was wearing a crap mismatched set when I killed the dragon, so missed out that time on having a cool set dragonforged.

I've been keeping an eye on the GameFAQs forums the last few days - right after someone kills the Ur-Dragon, you have about 30 minutes to get some last hits in, and then get a bunch of loot. You'll get Dragonforged every time, and you'll get a few million worth of stuff to sell. You can also do this as soon as you start NG+, but it might be nice to use now while you can still spend the money anywhere.

I'm passing on the whole Ur dragon thing (still really know nothing about it since there's no mention of it in the game). I just can't be bothered to sit at the pc (no laptop, netbook, pad, or smartphone here) constantly checking sites (especially gamefaqs, that place is just a total mess) to see when it's going to be killed. I'd rather be broke, which my character is, than waste realtime worrying about when to go whack it a few times.

I did read that if you kill the smaller dragons ingame you get dragonforged, but I think that's false. Killed a bunch of them and didn't get anything dragonforged.

Also saw just now when I was looking for the seller in Estrangement (went into Lament instead) that I got a whopping hunk of ambrosial meat, a few hundred coins, and a potion for adding damage to Ur when I was in there the one time. Lame....

I just got a mask dragonforged fighting a drake in the everfall, so I can confirm that it's possible.

I swear this game is taunting me with gear drops, this is the third damn pair of Heaven's Key daggers in a row, and the second Lambent Shield, and I don't need either.

I'm not suggesting you dedicate your life to it - I kept a tab open and would refresh when I came across it, and would just boot up the game for 5 minutes when I saw it was time.

For anyone other than the story dragon or the Ur-dragon, there's only a chance of getting dragonforged. The chances are higher the more you've upgraded your items.

Ahhh. That explains the dragon forged hunter bow I have. I got it fighting the drake in the woods.

I beat KoA and really enjoyed it. Until DD cam eout, it had the best combat system of any action RPG I have played. I am now post dragon in DD and I can say confidently that it is a lot better than KoA. KoA hits a point where the difficulty gets to easy. I playe don easy and there were only a few times when I felt like there was danger. It was still fun, but there was less incentive to look for that next set of armor on the next best weapon.

DD keeps you on you toes pretty much the whole time. There are less item drops, but the drops are more significant. You will usually upgrade once you find the next weapon. There are some trash weapons to sell, but there is a better sense of progression than KoA. The pawn system in DD is the main feature that pushes it past KoA. Having a constant companion and the ability to switch out two others is a big plus.

Both games allow you to switch your class at will. Storywise, I think KoA is better. The fiction and writing are just better.

Post game, KoA allows you to finish any quests you have and take on new ones. DD really shakes things up, but I won't spoil it.

Go with DD.

So I did take your advice Pete5883, I googled "ur dragon gamefaqs" and saw when they said it was in grace period, got in and managed to get some good gear, along with a nice looking (looks good on, but crappy stats though) set of gear dragonforged. What I looted were the two "warrior" weapons, the mage staff, and the Ascelon, Saint George's mask, and the set of Abyssal gear, along with twenty or so revival stones.

What I don't quite get is if you do damage to Ur but don't get in on the grace period do you get any good loot, and does your armor get dragonforged when you enter after it's dead? Or do you Have to be there for the grace period to get anything?

Really wish I could find a set of gear for magic archer that looked snazzy and matched yet had good magic stats too.

If you aren't there for the grace period you do get loot, but that loot depends either on how much damage you did to it, or how many rounds you survived against it (I'm not sure which.) Not sure about dragonforging, I think the answer is no though.

Awesome recommendation. It further solidifies that both games are worth playing. I will be picking up DD soon based off of that comparison.

This game is like Demon's Souls meets Oblivion and had a non-retarded child called Shadows of the Colossus. The one beef I have with this game so far is the hit or miss clunky combat. I'm not a fan of being locked into moves or having to 'power up' abilities because in a fast paced game like this, they're almost totally worthless. Now, if they gave a class, such as warrior, more than 3 fucking slots to allocate moves to then I wouldn't mind as much but the fact is I'm almost exclusively using the default attacks 99% of the time.

This is bad design in terms of character progression because no matter how much I level up or learn new moves, I'm not using many of them. The taunt doesn't seem to work or perhaps it has such a small radius it is really worthless and everything else requires that my enemy be a complete retard for 5 seconds while I do flashy things before finally attacking. I don't understand how an advanced class can be so stupidly broken when fighter actually has more utility and is more mobile. Maybe I'm not understanding what the class is supposed to excel at because I feel like I'm not holding aggro and I'm constantly having to chase everything that gets knocked 50 miles away or dies instantly to the sorcs in my party.

Lol, am I simply there to watch my pawns destroy everything because I don't feel in control of the game at all. The few times I do feel like the game is extremely rewarding is crushing cyclops or chimeras in the wilderness since I can grapple them to knock off their helmet or work on cutting the tail off. They can still be very deadly though, so the constant risk of death is a great rush.

At any rate, I still love the game to death since it's the same very dark, hardcore fantasy I've come to love from the DS series. Always a good sign when I don't want to stop playing. ;)

Got tired of playing really fast. Just seemed extremely repetitive after a while, and at level 71 I could pretty much kill anything without much effort or fear of getting killed. My 3 pawns and I were wiping rooms in the rift over and over and over grinding for rare gear and I can't even remember the last time I died. So finally got my NG+ save (just in case I ever get it again, I mean it wasn't a terrible game, but just got tired of it real fast) and traded Dogma & Demons Souls in for ME3 and SR3. Enjoying those two games quite a bit more than I ever did Dogma or DS.

I think I would have enjoyed Dogma a bit more if instead of Pawns we could have interacted/teamed up with their owners. So many new friends added to my PS3's friend list because of Dogma and only ever got to interact with their pawns, when slaying a dragon or griffin would have been more fun using actual real live players instead of their pawns.

Can't you hold a shoulder button to do another 3 or 4 moves?

Honestly not trying to be an ass at all, but you got to level 71 "really fast" or you got tired of it well before reaching that point and just unhappily grinded your way to level 71? Having not played the game at all, that makes it sound like either your perception of "really fast" and mine differ immensely or that the leveling system in Dogma is crazy accelerated.
