Title: 12 Hour Dev Plays Dead State Twitch Stream! DECIDE MY FATE.
Post by: SunwardMold on June 17, 2015, 06:18:45 pm
Tomorrow, June 18th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time, I'll be starting a 12 hour Dead State marathon on DoubleBear Production's Twitch channel!  (http://www.twitch.tv/doublebear_productions (http://www.twitch.tv/doublebear_productions))  Help me get started and decide how my character will be built.  Everybody gets three votes for this poll - You can cast one vote for character style, one for your favorite stat, and one for your preferred skill, or you can cast all three towards making sure that I've got as weird of a character as possible.

When building my character, I'll distribute my points according to their popularity on this poll, and select my perks based on which character style comes out on top.

Make sure to stop by the stream tomorrow, starting 10 AM Pacific time, to watch and see how far I can get in a 12 hour Dead State marathon!

vigor, management, science? Hmm, I think we should have another poll on which abilities are the least useful  :)

Also, "Pacific Time" is PDT (http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/pdt), right?

I missed the first two streams, but the tl;dr is Joel and Renee are dead, the player and Vic are infected, they've explored a few levels and recently recruited Pepper, Craig and Karen.

Mechanical 3 is a must - start capitalizing on that lower cost threshold immediately.

Hmm, it was in IMB stream. From start post I thought this will be completely different playthrough.

What threshold (fairly new player)

Will there be Twitch vods for this playthrough? Noticed you don´t have that function activated at the moment (I think due to there being no past broadcasts or Highlights saved)

With each skill in the game, there are certain perks that unlock with each milestone. When you get to the third rank of Mechanical, one of those perks is a discounted cost on the building materials required for shelter upgrades. I learned this after I finally got mechanical 3 while in the middle of building the final upgrade. :-/ Suffice to say, it's a bit of advice that I've given to friends before they start the game.

ok ty! Misunderstood. Is it really a must though? How significant is the bonus? I am playing on PC Infected and Hardcore. Am on day 2.

Is it three perk levels (9 or whatever regular) or three plain levels?

It is 3 "points" in skill. You get a perk at 3, 6 and 10.

Yesterday was fun. Where did things leave off in the stream? When last I left off, you were wandering the evacuation center.
