    This game is good so far but hard, playing it on Nemesis

    How long until you unlock combat finishers? The combat system feels straight-up empty without it

    You need to spend skill points to get executions. I think it's the second or third combat ability.

    You can get a skill where it builds much faster but drops on a miss or getting out of combat. It helps flow a lot.

    That's good, that basically sounds like the old ways so I'll switch to that

    Oh don't get me wrong
    Thematically it's perfect. Even with the best of intentions, Tallion is not immune to the corruption of Sauron's rings of power.

    But my inner 12 year old was hoping for Tallion to become the saviour of middle earth.


    So wait what happens
    Talion defends the north for decades from Sauron's troops but eventually becomes one of the Nazgul and is killed when he and his drake get hit by a chunk of lava when Mount Doom explodes as the One Ring is destroyed

    they then show his spirit walking West to the Grey Havens while removing and dropping all his armour and weapons

    no idea what happened to Celebrimbor tho

    This is the funniest shit I've ever read

    my understanding is that he cops it with Sauron when the one ring is destroyed. As the two had merged.

    I assume the "true ending" is what you get after you beat the witch king and then do all the mop up work?

    i just watched the true ending video and it is super funny

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    Some things about the true ending
    you see one of the Nazgul get hit by the rock in the ROTK movie, and I think it's hilarious that they decided that's the one that would secretly be Talion all along

    In the final cutscene, when the Eye explodes, there's a little blue spark that flies away, which I assume is Celebrimbor's soul escaping for future games

    aaaaaand finally I think it's kind of interesting that they do come down on the side of "doing evil things in pursuit of an ostensibly noble goal still leads to one becoming a monster" although they only did that in a cutscene and everything up to that point was presented as being super badass

    Ok shanking orcs by manually tapping a button is the most brutal and bizarrely hilarious thing, especially when like gondorian soldiers cheer you on as you do it

    Is it just me, or is the game crazy chaos straightaway?

    I've only played for a little over an hour but I feel like I've already killed like 10-15 captains, from level 3 through level 16.

    The starting area is full of pretty shitty captains that you can basically just beat down, but they get harder fast

  • AistanAistan Registered User regular
    When I had it on nemesis difficulty I got killed by a normal orc who was then promoted to become Hura the Tark Slayer. I hunted him down and murdered him.

    Then he showed up again. That time when I killed him I chopped off his left arm.

    Then he showed up again. With a claw for his left arm. I killed him again.

    Then he showed up again. Now with a fancier helmet. When I killed him I chopped off his right arm as well as the claw on his left arm.

    That is where the tale of Talion and Hura currently stands.

    I find myself letting some orcs I cant dominate yet (cos I havent unlocked it) retreat, cos im like youre a rad dude, I want you in my army

    Like the assassin guy who you drop a nest of flies on, which hes afraid of, then he gets killed by the flies, but comes back infested with hives and just absolutely loving flies and wanting to infect Talion with his blessing. Its like a heartwarming tale of overcoming your fears mordor style.

    Also I love the ability to send summoned allies to stealth kill for you

    After finishing a big warchief mission last night, before finishing my session, I just hung out on a rooftop in a stronghold directing dudes to murder everyone I could see for like 5 minutes.

    Watching them "sneak" up on dudes one after the other in complete plain sight, with no reaction from the enemy, was way more entertaining than it should have been.

    It's also a postgame optional thing, it's not a requirement to get to the ending, just an extra post game mode to get the bonus or true ending or whatever

  • KarlKarl Registered User regular
    The True ending isn't even that great and you can youtube it
    Ok we get it, even with the best of intentions using evil artefacts always fucks you in the end. In Talion's case, he ends up becoming a Nazgul.
    But at least he brought decades of breathing room to middle earth?

    The thing is if you get to the end of the game and you're bored of the core nemesis system and combat, then yeah it not worth it, but if you still want to wrangle poke-orcs and such it's basically a framing device for you. It's not "worth it" in the sense that it's an amazing ending, for me it'll be worth it cos I love playing the nemesis system game. They brought it on themselves with the lootboxes, but it's not a metal gear "do missions over again just to finish the game" deal. It's more like a hidden ending as a reward if you feel like playing the open world more

    Just got my first proper nemesis

    Got careless and died to an orc captain that honestly wasn't anything special, Skoth, so I went to go get my revenge

    Turns out he was weak to, and afraid of, poison

    And the revenge mission ended up being that he was having a feast, so I snuck around the camp and poisoned all of the grog, and he just sort of dropped dead while I wasn't looking

    Fast forward to like an hour later, and I'm killing another captain, and thankfully I just finished wiping him and his war party out because Skoth the Poisoned shows up. His face went all Toxic Avenger and he starts talking about how the poisons burned out his insides and now he's going to vomit it down my throat

    My nemesis is a real bastard. Hork the Tark Slayer. He's taken to stalking me and springing up, and since I'm playing on Hard, he's gotten me a few times.

    He's gotten very wise to my flippy bullshit and he hits like a freight train, which is weird because he's a smaller orc. So basically he's my Virgil right now.

    I've gotten a guy who I shamed, his face is all burnt in a hand print, and he is calling himself the unashamed. I'm pretty much going to keep shaming him now just to rub it it, I wonder if you can push them back to like level 1

    Also thank god you can turn bits of the hud off, I turned the notification that I have new quests off since it took up like the entire top left of my screen and basically never goes away since there always new quests

    I was also fighting a captain on top of a tower and he had this knockbaxk ability which barely affected me, but every time troops and ologs would crowd onto the top, he'd send them all flying off in all directions, I love it

    It'd be nice if upgrades could be combined instead of having to pick one. Punching a guy a lot for your ground finisher is cool, but I feel like I need to take the ability to counter if I ever actually want to finish a ground finisher.

    I feel like the only ones that really make sense to be mutually exclusive are the ones where you pick between fire, ice and posion.

    Got to a new zone, quickly found a beefy Olag who I made my bodyguard. Something the Terrible. Proceeded to forget about him.

    Saw there was ANOTHER Epic singer, tried to get him for my army, but he was a No Chancer and was about to kill me, when Mr. Terrible showed up out of nowhere. At first I was excited, except he flat out KILLED the singer. Dammit. But I was reminded he existed.

    Later I was doing another Nemesis mission when I decided to have him show up just in case. Motherfucker proceeded to betray me, so I shamed him, tracked him down, dominated him again, banished him out of my army, tracked him down and dominated him again. Then I sent him to infiltrate as a warchief.

    Come siege time and out of the five warchiefs I had infiltrated, he was the only one who got found out and died.

    Fuck that guy.

    Also fuck the Overlord who I had into the green, but I couldn't get a lock on with the dominate before he killed me because there were too many people around. Bugger.

    Be aware that you can get your sword (not sure about other weapons) broken when you get killed by big orcs.

    I had to buy loot boxes with mirian to get a new sword.

    You can get the sword back if you kill the same orc however.

    I dunno I feel the opposite in some ways, I'm not sure if it's just cos it was the tutorial siege but I found it super empty and easy, but my play style is always to find and dominate most orcs and outposts before I attack a fortress, and I'm hoping that doesn't turn all of them into an empty cakewalk like it did with the first

    It's like Talion started as a regular Ranger class in a D&D campaign, became so super powerful that the DM could no longer throw anything at him that he couldn't defeat, then just got fed up and went with 'rocks fall, party dies'

    It auto saves constantly you should be fine.

    Man that elven sprint ability is so powerful, you sprint away from a fight, and then just before you reach a guy just sneak drain, it makes getting health back really easy. Also being able to literally sprint towards a captain front on and move so fast that you can still stealth attack him point blank before he can react. I even sometimes just keep circling at super speed doing stealth attacks over and over

    Also the Carnan mission they ask "what have we awoken" and I swear at no point previously did anyone say anything about something being awoken
