Baldur’s Gate 3 has been taking the gaming world by storm these last couple of weeks, wowing players with its complex gameplay, crunchy combat, interesting builds and seemingly endless choices and possibilities. It’s had its fair share of controversy too of course, and has sparked a conversation on social media about save-scumming in RPGs, but it seems to have its status as one of the best games of all time locked in. But Baldur’s Gate 3 has one towering triumph above all others… it trains you to trust the dice.

    Excellent video, I love it. More please.

    I wonder if your lack of save scumming is part of the responsibility you feel as a streamer who is streaming the game, point to your "no reload gang" comment.
    I think that when playing the game to an audience, there's a feeling that the narrative you're presenting needs to be cohesive, and save scumming disrupts that.

    I know even if I fail, I'm rewarded with a cool variation on the story.

    I try not to save scum but sometimes it is difficult. Like that one time game glitched and turned druids hostile on me when I did literally nothing wrong.

    I reset only if I am really curious about what a certain outcome is.

    I would say save scumming is fine on your first playthrough because you may not want to lose control over your character/story events. But second playthrough I would definitely trust the dice more

    The Lae'zel warding bond thing gets even more degenerate. Use Gale instead. When he's not in your party he has the NPC heal self ability. It's perfectly balanced.

    You got Warding Bond a bit wrong. Because it also gives the target resistance to all damage, but the caster takes half the original damage. Meaning, in effect, you're splitting damage. The way you displayed it made it look like 150% of the original damage is done; 100% to the original target and 50% to the other in the bond. But 100% of the original damage is done; 50% to each.

    Haven't been subbed to you guys in a while cause I haven't played WoW in a LONG while. This video popped into my Feed and it was like revisiting an old friend. I am happy to see you both doing so well. I am sure the baby is no longer a baby but a solid toddler. Anyways, I blew Act 2 in that I didn't finish several quests so they were no longer able to be completed. So instead of trying to reload I just rolled up a new character and will start over. But like you guys I have ZERO issue with save scumming.

    Please mote BG3

    This video expressed a feeling I didn't realize I had with BG3. Usually choice systems in games either turn into a chore or feel patronizing to their core. BG3 manages to capture a small bit of the essence of DnD and encourage the player to embrace the outcome of their actions.

    I was upset when I finished act 2, Shadowheart didn't turn out the way I wanted and suddenly lots of people died due to my decisions/mistakes. But I pushed on and it was "fine" in the end.

    I think it's because of how items are tied to builds, and dialogue choices leads to those items, I've been save scumming repeatedly.

    However for my very first playthrough until my save file exploded randomly, no reloads.

    I actually tried to save scum once in this game and failed… In the Blood of Lathander quest i kind of missed/skipped the big puzzle and got to the artifact without the key. I was going to deal with it "the right way", go back and find the key, but decided to see what happens if i take the artifact without it, just out of curiosity, and then reload. The result was so fun and cool that i ended up keeping the save as is and didn't want to ruin it by reloading! It ended up being one of the most fun and memorable moments of the game for me, that also blew my mind with the different options for how you could deal with it.

    Failing to save Isabel in the Last Light Inn was perhaps the most impactful, dramatically tragic, powerful, and character defining moment in my playthrough. It shaped so many decisions i made going forward, turning my chaotic neutral "do what feels right in the moment to get ahead" character into a self sacrificing hero.
    And it was quite the plot twist too because i practically won the fight when one of the last henchmen with a handful of HP managed to land the last hit on her…

    I've been non stop playing bg3 for weeks now. Easily one of the best games I have ever played in my 34 years of video games

    I don't mind this mechanic. It's a hard game so save scumming is fine imo. But you can also choose to just iron man it and take it as it goes.

    Lae'Zel is low key such a good character. You gotta give her story a chance on your next playthrough, I think you'd be surprised by how much she blossoms!

    The game sucks. I couldn't romance Minthara and save the druids at the same time.

    Pretty much did the same on my first playthrough. I used F8 rarely and usually in small situation to try out weird stuff. But Isobel was captured too in my playthrough and i went with it. I went with some weird and bad stuff that happened but tried to make it a „good“ playthrough. But the Story that unfolded was my Story. I love what Larian did with this game. Now im in Run 2 with Dark Urge and try out weird shit, use the Wiki and stuff like that, but i didn’t want or needed that on my first run.

    I do way less save scamming in this game than usual. But that one time, when a whole village turned into mindless husks that attack me on sight, because I failed to safeguard an NPC – that's when I reloaded because I couldn't bear it.

    My character was your typical wood-elf archer. A hunter ranger with a very simple view of the world, very direct anf forward. She exterminated the goblins and rescued halsin. She traveled through the underdark and saved the gnomes. But she also had karlach shove nere into lava during the fight, so when we went back to the michonids and they asked us to go get his head, we simply couldnt. (We tried lol). We reached moonrise and failed to save isobel, we discovered the nightsong and saved both the night song and shadowheart. We killed thorm and left halsin behind, to care for the shadow cursed land. We traveled to baldurs gate, and we technically commited high treason, but by doing so, saved duke ravenguard, many prisoners, and the world.

    The last light inn point is exactly why I love this game, there is literally no wrong way to play this game no fail state, the story adapts and changes. It’s absolutely amazing

    Great vid guys, i really hope you do more BG3 vids. I kinda gave up on WoW a few years back, hence i kinda stopped watching WoW content. And to be completely honest I miss your vids the most. All the best to you!!!

    Effing hilarious my brother.
    The Reload Brotherhood is here!!!
    Our first quest is to get Larian to own D&D. First, we must defeat Ethel's sister (Williams) who owns WoTC. Using the power of Reload we should be able to get through the first few levels of their HQ easily.
    Let the unhinged people loose. Is it time for my jacket yet?
