We discuss the latest news about the gearing system of 5.1 and Bioware’s handling of the Fractured exploit. Finally, we dive into an in-depth discussion of class balance with Conrad, the state of the sorc class in particular.
No sorcs were harmed in the production of this week’s podcast…

CXP Fun fact: if you’ve already done the Shae Vizla encounter and still have the holocommunicator, you can consume it and get 20 CXP. It also works for Master Ranos and Niko.
Note that if you unlock Shae Vizla before KotFE, you will lose her until after chapter 14. This is intended.
