Many characters gain one or two talents over the course of their career.

However, there is only a handful of those in the game.

Can you choose the same talent multiple times? Or what do you do, when your party has a total of 10 or so talents later on?

Bye

In act 1 the maximum soulrank you can acieve is four, so no character needs 2 generic talents until act 2.

Ah, that certainly helps.


And, yes, I was aware that this is an issue that will only be relevant later, just thought I would ask, since I was wondering about it now.


Thank you!

Not true, I believe you can get to rank 5.

For start, you have an item that can give you a 50-50 to go up or down a level.




Also, are you sure that group that manages to let the chaos dreadlord (+1 xp when you make a kill) to kill all the monsters won't make it to a higher level? At least for one character?

I haven't tried to do it, but think maybe it's possible?

I mean you would need 36 XP to reach levle 5.
I'm pretty sure there are at least 36 monsters througout the campaign.

True you will end up with a bunch of soul points. However, Act I rules specifically state the max soul rank is 4

Isn't that more like 4 + 9 + 16 + 25 = 54 ?

P.S. And, yeah, there's a hard cap for Soul Rank IV in the scenario book for Act I.

No, I meant the amount of points you need to go from level 4 to level 5 is next level squared - 6^2 = 36

Hope there won't only be Soulrank VII talents available. We indeed need more talents ranging from Soulrank 2 - 5 so there'll still be choices to be made. Otherwise we'll end up taking all remaining talents (or almost).

You might want to check your math there. Going from level 4 to level 5 would take 25 Soul Points. 5^2 = 25, not 36.

Yeah... I thought of 5 to 6 for some reason

I'm talking about Talents, so the ones recognised with the "*"... I think you are talking about standard powers for Core set heroes, high rank-powers that are included in both darkness falls and vastaryous'lair expansions

None of the 5 characters included in the retail set get a second talent until Sounlrank VII. If that is also the case with all other characters, then the 6 talents included is sufficient (if a little limiting for the last char or 2 to get a talent).

Rather limiting, indeed.

I have the Kickstarter version which includes 14 heroes. Since there are only 7 Talent cards, and that's not enough Talent cards to spread out among all the available heroes. I know you can't play all 14 heroes at once, but you'll end up having to move the Talents around as you play with each group of heroes.
