    The inclusion of new trophies gives me extra reasons to come back. Will probably do NG+ on lethal just for giggles. Shouldn't have to do anything more then whatever the new trophies require since I am not that big of a fashion player really. Playing co-op and doing the horde mode seems really damn cool though. Will want to learn more about what each class does before I unlock the first one and get locked into it.

    They are adding a Charm of Canine Recruitment, so you can pet the dogs and charm them to be allies.



    I'm going to equip that charm and never take it off.

    Gear loadouts is a huge deal, and something I wish games like this released with from the beginning. It's clear the game wants you to change gear and charms based on situations, but the amount of menu hunting it takes means I only did it in very extreme cases. Mostly I found a loadout I liked and stuck with it. Being able to build loadouts, with some kind of quick switch menu, would make the design goals the game clearly had much more manable. I wish they had released the game with it.

    That said I love this game so much I'll probably do an NG+ run at some point.

    Despite the menu nonsense I made a habit of changing my gear on a semi-regular basis. Sometimes I wanted to be real stealth focused, others I liked speccing archery, etc. So having a few loadout options was really important to me, and I think it's awesome they're doing it.

    With the new charms, I'm eager to see what other kinds of options we get that can help vary playstyle.

    Legends is out now. Kinda weird that you have to "purchase" a free thing to unlock it from the main menu. There's a tutorial showing off the 4 different classes and basic controls. It's pretty neat so far.

    I started Hunter as my first class*. What does the Technique tree for Ronin look like? Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of Arrow buffs in the Hunter tree.

    * You start with one class choice, and unlock the others as you play.

    Okay well breath of izanami is great when you can't spend a second to rez an ally.

    Ronin's skill tree - finally just found it - is a lot of little stuff, (+stagger, +tool damage) and heals. First skill I got makes his ult heal, which is huge, and you can get rid of the dog to get another heal station.

    Not sure I wanna get rid of my dog though.

    Edit : and there's an AoE debuff (deal 25% less, take 25% more) at level 7. That seems hot.

    The first non-Smoke Bomb tool that I unlocked was a self-heal, and so far, that's been pretty decent in story missions keeping me topped up. I'm enjoying the new enemy moves that show up now and then, although being locked into a single stance is a hell of a thing.

    It is but it also means your squaddies have specialities - I've been using a water sword for the last three or four things, and it's been really handy to be able to run up to any shield dude or shield heavy who's on one of my teammates and just go newwwwp. I just unlocked a higher-soul wind sword, so I gotta' go with that - but not being able to switch is weird.

    What is awesome is how all the gear has all these little modifiers that really make this +damage trinket much more than it seems, because it also gives +12% perfect parry window. There seems to be a lot you can do with the gear. I just won the first survival thingie I tried - 15 waves on a beach with another ronin and 2 samurai - and it was pretty awesome! Holding a point down by yourself at zero health just by chaining 5 perfect parries in a row is awesome. Flying over a cliff to assassinate one of the mongols who were bearing down on your ally is awesome. Resurrecting them with my super ronin power is awesome.

    In fact it's a lot awesomer than I was expecting, all round.

    Dropping into a psychedelic fantasia version of Tushima with a complete stranger who then perfectly stealth kills that guy while I stealth kill this guy before we both fall on a miniboss as one is... a lot awesomer than I expected ^.^

    I didn't think this would have any value to me at all - I'm not big on co-op PvE, but maybe that's just because Overwatch killed it for me.

    Yeah ok this mode is fucking hot.

    It's practically criminal that a mode of this depth and complexity is being given away for free.

    Anyone who plays it should go to jail.

    I would give them money if they'd let me.

    (Blinkblink) just woke up though. Late night of Ronin-ing and Assassin-ing.

    The assassin's skills allow them to be super survivable and always able to pop a smoke bomb to rez an ally - might equally replace breath of azumi for the Ronin? And the fact that the ronin is the only class without a power strike is bunk.

    Samurai can get 2 active skills like that at a time. :( but that big ass armor :(

    Nah. Failed my first bronze level survival because we had 2 samurai, 2 assassins and 0 heals lol >.<

    Back to Ronin today I think.

    Upon further review, I'm loving this so much today I wonder if maybe I should have been playing Ubisoft's For Honor this whole time.

    I'm just gonna' grind bronze survival runs for a while on my Ronin.

    Finally got him figured out.

    His ult doesn't just rez allies instantly. It rezzes allies instantly no matter the range. No matter where they are on a map. I'm going survival runs, I'm defending the stable, our Samurai at the Farm just died, our Hunter at the Villa's nearly dead and the Shinobi's already there. I'm on my way to the Farm - bam, ult, we are back - and because I don't use the version where nearby enemies catch fire, all those allies then get healed to full.

    Oh yeah. You want this on your team.

    Loving this so much >.<

    Yeah, I’ve unlocked Ronin and Assassin after the Hunter. I prefer Assassin or Hunter in Story, but Ronin is huge for Survival. Long Range Rez and heals go a long way for team support,
