Same. I thought I'd support it, but not buy something that cost an arm and a leg until I had an idea of what I was buying into and how it was progressing. I had every intention of upgrading but never did.

Also! Patch nooottteess :


https://forums.obsidian.net/blog/7/entry-179-patch-notes-103/

"Big Ticket" Items

Bears and Cats can now be equipped with hats. This is most likely not a joke... but might be a joke.
Double-clicking to equip items was causing passive abilities to get removed from the character. This has been fixed and we were able to retroactively fix the problem for people that have already run into the issue. If you open your saved game in the latest patch, your characters will be repaired.
Fixed a problem where attributes on characters could permanently increase by equipping certain items. This will also retroactively fix the problem in saved games that have characters with this issue.
The crash in Raedric's Hold has been fixed.
Fixed the looping audio sounds that can occur if you play with minimized tooltips.
Previously Wizard summoned items could persist after the spell's duration. This has been fixed and it will also retroactively fix the problem in saved games that have characters with this issue.
The items Drinking Horn of Moderation and Talisman of the Unconquerable were causing Ciphers to permanently lower their amount of focus gain. We've included a fix to retroactively resolve the issue on Ciphers but the effect is still on the items. Unfortunately the fix will not fix the broken effect on those items, so you'll need to keep those items unequipped until the next patch. If you do equip them, perform a Save/Load to fix your Cipher.

I mean, if you actually click the link, there's a lot more... but that would require effort.

Well it turns out some of it was to add new, exciting bugs. Like having two pets running around at once, symbols of previous looted items flashing up whenever you try to loot something and enemies flickering between standing and dead after being killed!

Seems to be another 600mb patch today that might sort some of those issues.

I've got to the same point after about the same period of time, maybe 5-6 hours more, but that was including the first 11 levels of the dungeon under your keep.

I haven't even started on that. I've been picking up an enormous amount of loot, some of it Fine, other unique items that I haven't sold and I still have 30,000+ gold (or whatever it is called in this game) I hope the stash is infinite.

Wait until you do the dungeon. I did 8 levels of it in one go, then came out to restock, and sold all the loot I'd gathered for about 50k. I spent quite a lot of that in Twin Elms on a couple of unique weapons.

I've just got to the bottom of that dungeon.

Spoiler: show
I tried to fight the Master. I died in two hits. I'll be going back to negotiate.

As dungeons go it's a belter, and it's almost certainly the biggest individual one I've ever seen.

I've been busy but I'll be able to carry on with this today! Also, that patch fixed a few glitches so it'll be good to play most of the game without those bugs.
