Giantbomb Dragon's Dogma Pawn Thread

#1 Posted by Karkarov (3069 posts) -

Well we are going to need one sooner or later yeah, so I figure we should have a thread for showing off our Pawns to other Giantbombers who will be playing DD. Make sure to include your gamertag/pawn name since this will be the easiest way of finding someones MP if you want to recruit em! Just follow this format... Throw a pic in there too if you want, you can always take one in game using the photo share if you can't capture it with camera etc and then edit it for posting here. For those of you who have crazy RP back stories throw those in too right?

So if you got the game early go ahead and get to it!

Don't have the game yet and I'll be changing things up once I actually get it. I made me, but decided I didn't want to play as me.

But check it out, it's me! This is what got me excited about the game initially.

Well I'm gonna carry my pawn over from the demo most likely. When the game's out on friday here.

360. Gamertag is poor old al

Pawn name - Keelah

She's gonna be a massive warrior type. Backstory is that she & my main character (Se-lai, who is a tiny mage) have been adventurer best friends for ages together, with Keelah always taking the lead and Se-lai looking after her with heals and buffs and everything. But now that Se-lai is the Arisen their roles have switched around a bit.

Does anyone here know if it is possible to write a background story for your main pawn in the actual game? I've been writing some role-playing nonsense but if I can only put it up here and not in the game I won't bother finishing it.

I'm not sure how that would even work, but no you can't as far as I'm aware.

My pawn looks like Gandalf the only downside is that he's not a wizard, he wields a huge sword.

I'll update this with my info once I get the game.

Thanks.

What I would've liked is just a text field where you can input (which would be a hassle with a controller, of course) a description for your pawn. But alas.

(Will post once I have full game. Using the Pawn I first created.)

Bio: 
 
Sin is a womanizing bastard from up north who teamed up with Ladonna for the simple fact she had a big rack. He's a brute to be used and won't bother denying it. He's a big man and tends to boast is accomplishments and (lack of) to anyone and everyone who's willing to listen to his babble after a few pints much to Ladonna's dismay. There is no love lost between the two (sort of) companions, she dosen't mind what he does as long as he is still doing his job and watching her back. For him it's a good time kicking the shit outta everything as long as he can make some cash and impress the bitches with his new griffon skin belt and manticore polished boots.
 
Sin is a simple man, give him booze, girls and a good fight and he'll want for nothing.

#25 Edited by MetalBaofu (1373 posts) -

If anyone wants to add me and/or hire my pawn, then feel free. I'm on PS3. My PSN name is DoctorBaofu. Main pawn is a level 14 female strider, named Morgana.

Edit: Here is my attempt at trying to get a screenshot...which was kinda annoying because pawns don't seem to like to sit still for photographs. Anyways, here is my dude(mystic knight) and my pawn(the ranger on the left). Currently level 36. Can see them better if you look at the full size picture, obviously.

Another Edit: Got some new armor, so I decided to try and get a better/more close up shot.

Edit The Third: Just finished my second play through and will be sending the game back to Gamefly, so I figured I might as well post one last pic of my dude/pawn. Now level 71, and I'm an assassin and my pawn is a warrior.

My pawn has apparently been used by other players, and I've received the odd bit of rubbish to show for it, but on ole Fire Beard's character sheet, the review section is still blank =( I assume it's a bug or something? Far as I know you can't even dismiss a pawn without offering a review.

#28 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

@Yummylee: The same has happened to me. You can still get items (albeit crappy ones) when you rest. Your pawn goes back to its world and brings random crap back. You'll know when someone uses your pawn because it'll show the Gamertag.

Ohhh, so nobody has actually used my pawn? Huh, well that sucks. Maybe much like how Patrick would cheese the system and only hire pawns considerably higher level than him, my pawn would have to hit such a high level to actually receive some use. He's only... I think level 21 at this point.

I wouldn't doubt that it's because of my tight-assssss NAT once again restricting my online capabilities, though. I'm also SILVER on the 360 as well, but I don't see how that should impact anything since I can still play with other player's pawns.

#30 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

@Yummylee: I hire pawns at least 10 levels above me. Pawn level doesn't matter now that I'm lvl 42. Don't worry, no one started using my pawn until I gave it good gear and reached about lvl 30. Just this morning I accrued 45,000+ rift points. Button-mashers are always looking for healers.

#31 Edited by Yummylee (21498 posts) -

@BraveToaster: Ha, a strange coincidence as my Pawn has apparently travelled with 5 other playerss since last night... I received the usual assortment of shit (2 rotten apples and a herb), but I got around 30K rift points! Plus my overall review ranking is at 4*'s for each category. I did just install the game onto my hard drive, so maybe that had something to do with it... in any case, I'm just glad that it is now proven possible for my pawn to go frolic about with other players and I wasn't being restricted by a strict NAT or a bug or something.

It's possible your pawn was killed in combat in another player's world. When they die, I think they take whatever they had in their inventory with them at the time of their deaths.

#37 Posted by Valedrel (3 posts) -

@BigDaddy81: If a pawn has items in its inventory on death, those items are sent to the employers storage. random junk is received every now and then so that even those that don't get their pawns hired (or are offline) get something.

#38 Posted by BigDaddy81 (319 posts) -

@Valedrel: Thank you for clarifying that. I had assumed that if a pawn came back unrated it meant that he was killed in another world. I was also afraid I had lost a lot of crafting materials when one particular pawn who was sharing my burdens got knocked off a cliff and died. Good to know I should have that stuff back in storage.

K,

  • System: PS3
  • Gamertag: Bassario
  • Pawn Name: Viola
  • Level: 44 I think? 45 at most. (I'm at work on lunch)
  • Vocation/Rank: Mage full rank.
  • Primary Skills: Healing, and Fire affinity are permanent (The weapon buff will change occasionally) 3rd is often High Comestion (Fire wall) but also prone to change.
  • Secondary Skills: These can vary, I usually have 2 offensive things combined almost always with the one that cures de-buffs.
  • Core Skills: All that are available
  • Augments: Greatly increased Physical Def, Greatly increased Magic and Standardly increased magic (from maxed out sorcerer and mage) and 3 other beneficial Augments to casters.( I can't remember her build down to the letter because Im not with the game at the moment.)
  • Inclination: Guardian and Utilitarian: So she will look after you, shes quick on the heals and will keep the weapon buff going most of the time. (If you click the "help" key just before you know you're going into combat she will know to pop it on early for you most of the time, this is a nifty trick I find.)

To Viola style and comfort are very important, she likes to stay agile, light and maintain good visibility so if that means wearing her favorite circlet instead a horribly tacky nun hat and missing out on a couple of defense points that's absolutely no problem, I always do my best to maintain and enhance her gear and make any minor adjustments to suit her combat role and style, if you look after her a little in combat and don't let her get surrounded she will provide wonderful care, quick healing and buffs as well as good damage to your opponents. Hire her and the only other roles you will need to fill is high end Damage like Sorcerer or Ranger and a heavily armored front liner.

**Disclaimer: Viola will be going into Fighter for 10-15 levels in order to boost her maximum health and Defense points while we prepare to get to level 100. I did the calculations and it is quite valuable to do this, soon afterwards she may have to chill as a sorcerer a while longer to make up for the tiny magic potency loss, fortunately I have plenty of very heavy armor for her during this phase and while she wont be putting out the most fantastic damage I am certain she will make a fantastic Tank for a few levels should you hire her sometime after today, in the long run the above build will continue to apply."

@ModerateViolence: I was checking him out on in the rift last night. Quite well rounded caster to be sure, had some really nice gear.

@Bassario: I will pick her up on my next play-through. Its pointless taking high level characters at this point.

The divine surcoat looks so great on tall slim dudes.

But I just tried it on my dwarfish broad character and it makes him look way fat, even tho he isn't, just doesn't work for me at all, i look like some kind of elderly nun :(
