Bumping because the Dark Arisen expansion is out. I've purchased the expansion on PS3 for the sole purpose of not only replaying the entirety of the game for a third time, but to have 100% completion on both Xbox 360 and PS3. If you want to rent my pawn, add Meicyn on PSN, or if you don't like me but want to use my pawn, search for my pawn also named Meicyn. He wrecks shit pretty effectively.
For those that are not aware, Dark Arisen is basically Dragon's Dogma - Game of the Year Edition, featuring the original game, all the DLC that was released for the core game, plus a brand new dungeon that adds about 20 hours of gameplay to an already large game.
Action-RPG combat system of the generation, easily. Nothing is more satisfying than successfully landing Mighty Bend into a cyclops' eye - that's when you know you're a pro.
Is it true this adds some semblance of a fast travel?
Here's how it worked originally:
- You had Ferrystones, which would transport you to port crystals but costed a lot (base price of 10,000 or 20,000 as I recall, though items and favor can lower prices with those that sell them.)
- You had port crystals which you could place somewhere, warp to, then pick up and put elsewhere, but there's only 1 until you beat the game, then NG+ (I think) gets 10 more.
Now, here's how it is:
- If you're carrying a DD save you'll get the Eternal Ferrystone. If you don't have a save, you can at least buy the Ferrystones at a greatly reduced price, 5,000 as the base price I believe, but I have it so I can buy them for 1,000. IMO this is very acceptable as it gives some weight to them so you don't use them casually, but they're not so expensive you're choosing between a one time warp or upgrading a good chunk of your gear.
If you really want the Eternal Ferrystone just borrow a copy or whatever.
- There's now another permanent port crystal at the village you start the game at, and there's far more port crystals scattered throughout the world before NG+, something like 6 now I think.
If you're hoping for Skyrim fast travel you're not going to get it, but I think what's offered now should be more than enough if you're willing to travel at least a little.
