To complement our new Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun walkthrough and equipment database, we've prepared a full review of Obsidian's first and potentially only DLC for the action RPG threequel. A little something to get you started:
Outside of the combat, Obsidian provided some new things to see and do, some minor and some major. The minor additions include a special pool at the abbey where you can re-spec your character (for the low, low price of 20,000 coins), the increase of the level cap from 30 to 35, and several new deeds, achievements, and places where you can influence your companions. There are also over 40 new items to find in the game. We've also updated our image gallery with 28 new screenshots, in case you want to see more of the add-on. Enjoy!
The major additions with the DLC include essences and ultimate abilities. Essences are objects dropped by bosses or gained by transmuting objects. They can be added to your equipment to give you bonuses to your chaos: vampire, doom, retribution, stagger, and warding statistics. Any number of essences can be applied to an object, with the caveat that the object can only have at most six types of bonuses (but since there are only five types of essences, this isn't much of a caveat). There is also a coin cost to applying essences.
