DLC suggested chaos level (no spoilers!!!)

#1 Posted by Bakumatsu (356 posts) -

Hello everyone. Finished Dishonored today and I want to start the dlc but I would like to know, without spoilers, what is the sugested chaos level for the most satisfying playthrough and ending.

I know Daud is supposed to be more evil when compared to Corvo, so high chaos should be more in line with the character, but maybe low chaos is more rewarding in terms of storytelling and ending?

Any suggestions?

I mean, it's really based around your decisions. I didn't kill anyone besides my marks, but I killed every last one of them without mercy and still got low chaos.

@bakumatsu: In all honesty that system has very little bearing on the entire game. Since it is meant to be primary a stealth title you should probably be playing Low Chaos regardless if it's Daud or the main campaign. Personally I get the most satisfaction from stealth games when I can sneak in and sneak out without anyone ever knowing I was there. I'm not saying don't kill anyone, but raising as few alarms as possible.

Also the entire concept of the chaos system is that more bodies feed the rats and help spread the plague so you'll see more Weepers about the levels. I was kind of disappointed that the power up that turns un-alerted enemies to ash once you kill them doesn't negate a high chaos rating. Since there is no body technically it shouldn't be an issue, alas..

Both DLCs have a slightly different ending scenario depending on your chaos level. It's not as significant as the palette swap in the last level of the main game, but I thought end of The Brigmore Witches brought the whole game full circle in a clever way. I say go with your gut, or play through them twice.

@humanity: now that's how it's done. It's a pretty good DLC; sort of a haunted house mystery toward the end.

having a lead character who can talk makes it interesting his choices, both good and bad and the DLC really does the chaos level really well.
