I win! Embermage has finished slaughtering her way through the endgame.

The ending felt like something of a slog to me, though, as I had already gotten all the new skills I could be interested in. For me one of the biggest appeals for this kind of game is getting newer, cooler, more powerful skills as I level up. I've already mentioned that the higher-level skills in this game tend to actually be noticibly weaker than their low-level counterparts, but once I've picked up any that even vaguely have use, there really seems like little else to do. Sure, I can keep putting points into them, but each increase is infinitesimal. By the time the endgame rolls around, I don't feel like I'm really accomplishing anything.

Well, whatever. Let's see what can be done with my other characters. I've still got two more days left until Dishonored comes out.

And Ice Prison is such a fun skill, especially when used on those big bruisers.

Anyway, here're three more armor styles on show...

Does anyone else get the impression that 2H melee weapons are severely underpowered? (not to mention it puts you a high disadvantage defensively). I went through normal with my engineer and had some trouble keeping up with the damage with the person I play with (he's an outlander). So for NG+ I switch to 1H with a shield, use a mod that allows the use of a skill reset potion without being labeled a cheater and all of a sudden I'm killing things at a crazy pace!

I'm certainly getting that feeling. I tried to religiously stick to 2H and poor little thing is getting pummeled. Her sister, otoh, with shield and whacker is doing just fine.

Got a couple more armor styles to show off.

And a couple of action shots. The rotating pause-cam from the original game is an unfortunate casualty of the improvements to the graphical engine:
