[Walkthrough] Pillars of Eternity Video-Based Walkthrough by David Milward 2019-03-12

A Pillars of Eternity playthrough based on video longplays.

    This is not intended as a complete walkthrough in the sense that it doesn't explore every possible avenue, or reveal where every single item can be found. Plenty of walkthroughs, including mine that is already on here at Sorcerer's Place, do that.

    There are a number of reasons for this newest guide. In addition to complete solutions that I've written for games, like Temple of Elemental Evil for example, I have sometimes written game guides from a much more subjective viewpoint, like the ones I've written for BG2 and IWD2. It affords me an opportunity to explain in considerable detail the kind of analysis, preparation, and decision making that can produce a successful campaign. I have occasionally received requests to return to that style of writing, and thus have endeavoured to write a similar guide for Pillars of Eternity 1.

    Secondly, this guide assumes the installation of both Part 1 and Part 2 of the White March expansion. Further, make sure that you have unchecked the autolevel companions box in the difficulty tab, as it will allow you more control on your companions' builds.

    Thirdly, I'm an avid user of Youtube, and frequently upload videos of my gameplay. I was struck by the idea of integrating some of those videos into game guides, with the earlier version of a Dragon Age: Origins walkthrough being my first one. The guide is embedded with my Youtube videos, with those videos accompanied by my explanations of what is going on and what decisions I am making.

    For this guide, I do not provide general guidelines pages like I did for the NWN2 video-based guide. Instead, advice on building characters and equipping their items emerges through the character profile pages, while advice on combat emerges in the details of the guide itself. The guide itself follows the adventures of both a good Paladin Watcher and an evil Paladin watcher.
