    Are you going to buy it? What do you think it will be like?

    I will base my purchase on other people's feedback and reviews.

    I'm definitely going to get it. From what I've heard and read, it is finally going to be what NWN should have been from the start.

    all the major PW's that exist will probably use this expansion aswell so If you want to play on one of them, you have to buy the expansion. There are some great new scripting comands etc in HotU

    This is the exactly the reason why I'm buying it. I don't know if I would buy it, if I didn't play multiplayer as much. When the two expansion packs were announced, I always had higher hopes for HotU. Maybe I'll even get out of the first chapter of the single player campaign with this one.

    Oh, I'll definitely buy it. I've finally had some time to get into SoU, and I'm having a great time.

    I'll install NWN, make sure it works on my computer, and order it (through SP, of course) to begin playing almost immediately.

    If you guys would just put off buying new games for a year, you wouldn't have to worry with these frustrations. When you get ready to play, the expansions and communities are ready and waiting for you!

    I haven't bought any new games in a while, but it looks like HoU may be next on my list. The new prestige classes look awesome, and I hope they include a pantload of new portraits. I prefer melee characters, and felt a little jipped that the only powerful melee prestige character in SoU (Blackguard) was evil only. I don't dig on evil. :nono:

    Pretty much all the new prestige classes look cool as hell to me, especially the Champion of Torm. So I'm in. And for 30 bucks, I don't see it as a "splurge" purchase.

    I am getting, won't be exactly at the release but oh well. I am excited for it though, excited enough to start a game of SoU again.

    A bit off topic but me and my roommate are racing through SoU, both of us using monks. Fun Fun.

    I'll buy it. Since the PW I play in will be switching over to it. So we can implment all the goodies that they have added into the game.

    Now if they only let PC's roll a drow. :>

    I'll probably only end up buying it when ALFA updates to it. Although I might get it if people here highly recommend it.

    If you're buying it for multiplayer, don't. HOTU doesn't support multiplayer. Strange but true. That should mean the single player campaign's better though...

    I've just started the single player campaign and I can't say I'm impressed with it. SOU seems like a step forward from NWN but HOTU seems a step back.

    [​IMG] Try again. The built-in Campaign that COMES WITH HotU isn't specifically INTENDED to work well in the multi-player mode. Sales of the first two parts of the game were strongest to solitary- playing buyers, who found the limitations that are required to enable multi-player just too restrictive.

    The upgrades that come with HotU certainly will be playable in various Persistent Worlds created for multiple players, but the campaign itself has to be tweaked to work "somewhat" with more than one player in it.

    :rolleyes:

    *nods* It cant be non-multiplayer, since the game itself is intended for it.

    BTW i'm playing it now.
    Really nice everything!
    You can have 2 henchmen along you, including Deelin - the kobold bard. Instantly when you begin the game you may level up to 15th level.
    But something is really really strange... Its all so easy!
    The initial first three fights werent. But once you come in the |spoiler| and you're fighting drow (not much of a spoiler that youre fighting drow anyway), they fall like flies!
    All effortless. It may have something to do with my animal companions incredible sneak attack damage though... 7d6 :D
