Absorbing creations: necessary? in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Cold resistance is actually annoyingly common. Most regular enemies are vulnerable to cold, but a large proportion of the less common but more annoying enemies resist it heavily: specters of all sorts are immune, and golems and pylons both take only 10% damage. And of course there are cryodrayks. The cryoa melee attack isn't horrendous, but creation melee attacks are really never good after G2.

Cryoas are still good -- they are one of the better values for their essence cost, and they are available early -- but the majority of your team should probably use magical or physical damage, to avoid being shut out against ice resistant enemies.

Although note that cryoas are great against wingbolts and their ilk.

Your comparison was wrong; creations and Alwan and Greta all leech XP the same way. It's very minor, but they all do.

I give you points for using the Faerie Bazaar as a stage. But really, Erika vs Litalia without any creations present is a complete joke.

I thought it was a TM reference too; that's what worried me. TM changed his PDN regularly (more often than I do, but less often than Alorael does, I think) so there were a whole slew of them, surely at least one began with S.

Oh well.

The line in question, that I was worried about, was:

Yes, having creations in Geneforge is like having advantages in Avernum 4 and 5: you'll never be more than a small handful of levels behind even at the end of the game. So if you want to keep seven vlish (or whatever) around the whole game, it's an easy call to make.

The real perfectionist problem is if you plan on upgrading to new creations, or if you just use disposable creations; as unlike Avernum, you don't just lose skill points, you also lose a small amount of precious maximum essence. But if that really bugs you, you can always iwanttobestronger a few levels to make up for the XP leeching.

He posted some things (for no apparent reason) that grossly violated the code of conduct. The thread in question has been spirited away (due to grossness).

Unfortunately, Battle Creations suck universally. There is never any point at which there is any reason whatsoever to use or invest in battle creations.

That's because Iffy listens to people and tries to learn from them.

Full stat comparisons for keeping a creation all game can be found here:
http://minmax.ermarian.net/g4/g4cre.html

Fyoras and Thahds become useless characters almost immediately due to their puny attacks. Artilas will have a useful ranged attack for a while but they are so very fragile.

I'm just hoping the implication implied by that one line of chapter 3 is, in fact, a red herring.

Incidentally, I think Tyranicus should be thankful for his imbullicity. He hasn't died once since he became a cow!

For crying out loud, people. Let's just tell it like it is and stop moaning about every other person saying something the wrong way:

1. Jeran made a lot of annoying posts. Jeran got feedback about this. Jeran made another post in the same vein. Jeran, now might be a good time to re-evaluate your posting strategy. Is it getting you what you want? You're making people hate you.

2. ADoS made fun of Jeran's post in a way that was funny, but also pretty mean. There's a thin line between parody and cruelty and as ADoS no doubt knows, this is pushing it and not OK on the boards. Some of the funny parts could have been put in without the gratuitous anatomical and maternal references.

3. Nioca expressed his sense of morality, but in a way that came off as self-righteous and demanding, as a result of which he also received feedback about it. Sometimes it's not what you say, it's how you say it. Also, it may be wise not to let Salmon bait you too much :)
