    First thing I went for were the silent kills and the skill that allows you to attract folks by whistling. Too useful for thinning out the herds.

    Most of the skills r pretty useful even the ones that arent that useful i found myself getting them because there was a skill below them that i wanted but at start I got silent strike first then I went for the tinker skill.

    I spent way too long on the Shadow Hunter Bow tutorial.

    It wasn't never clear to me which machines had armor to shoot off, so I started hunting Sawtooths since they keep their Blaze hidden behind armor. Later I stealth kill a Scrapper and noticedall of the armor that fell off of it. -.-

    I'm still trading melee hits with Sawtooths too.

    For Sawteeth, I just use a combination of rope and trip casters to keep them away and set up fire arrow shots.

    That, or I just hack one and use it to take out the others.

    Tinker is already paying off. Being able to switch mods to take down and stun enemies with the sling in one hit is awesome. I did the Valleymeet Hunting Grounds challenge, which focuses on elemental damage, so fucking fast. For the shock challenge I equipped a legendary and a rare mod that both increase shock damage to the Carja sling, then switched them to two freeze mods for the freeze trial. They were almost over before they began, lol.

    I really think Horizon got the balance of difficulty just right between the usual cakewalk that game's tend to be, and the more "masocore" Souls-like games. The combat is challenging, and you will die, unlike with the former, but it doesn't reach the brutal, trial and and make a lot of errors difficulty of the latter.

    I agree d3v. I have died a quite a few times but I have never felt like anything was overly difficult but at the same time the game isn't so easy that everything is a cake walk. 9/10 when u approach a situation u gotta go in with a plan u can't just go in guns (or should I say bows) blazing cause u will either died or end up using a shit ton of resources and meds. Override adds another lvl to battle planning as well, I managed to override a thunderjaw early when I was surrounded by 2 ravagers and 3 watchers, man that thing cleaned house.

    It also does a gd job of making everything rewarding, beating robots can always lead to getting really gd weapon mods and because you have to craft ur ammo it's sometimes a necessity

    Went to Gamestop yesterday and traded in Nioh for this game. I just don't give a fuck the storyline in Nioh; every mission felt like the same grind. I'm only 2 hours in this game and I am already hooked on the story. Hunting down these machines never felt so good!
    I mean, goddamn, the intro CG before I even get to start a new game has more storyline than Nioh!

    Lol my girl was talking to me while the game was idle and I saw the npc's glitch out like the fucking matrix, over here pulling the same parts off a robot over and over.

    I started using it yesterday. Very necessary once you're in the desert.

    I've found myself using less stealth tactics - feeling more confident in my use of the overall weaponry. Took down a +6 Thunderjaw last night.

    Depends on how you want to play.

    I've focused on Prowler skills cause I like stealth whenever I can use it, but Brave skills will help you in combat, while Forager skills help you with crafting and resources.

    Just depends on what you want. I'm 30 hours in and I've dipped my feet in each area.

    Edit: As for "bosses", the bigger they are, the more you want to focus on breaking off parts and weapons on their body.

    The best thing about Horizon is that there is no "correct" way to advance the skill tree. It's literally going with what will best fit how you want to play.

    Not starting with Stealth Strike and Lure is WRONG, tho... :whistle:

    If you just keep ding sidequests, you'll hit the 20s quite easily. By then, you'll have enough skill points to go down one column in each tree.

    Here's mine at level 27.

    If I'd ever change anything, it would probably be switching the extended override time for more critical hit damage. But then again, I use override a lot the way I play. Also, didn't originally plan to go down Forager that much, but the extra ammo on crafting (2nd to the last on the last column) is pretty much necessary once you get the purple weapons, especially the shadow ropecaster whose heavy rope uses 10 wire to craft.

    Yeah wire has been the only thing I have found myself running out of a few times. Mostly cause of the ropecaster but a lot of other things use it as well.

    Having to stock up on wire makes me wish the game let you buy multiples of one item.

    Yeah I don't see they need for lure early on when rocjs do the same shit. Or is there a specific difference Idk about?

    Lure always draws a single target towards you, which is hella useful when playing stealth.

    I don't remember saying it's wrong - that's just how I chose to play.

    At this point, both are too useful to not go for them immediately, or at least after picking up concentration.

    IMO, first six skill points should go to concentration, silent strike, lure, and then healer just so you can get herbalist.
