Reply To: Advice on Direwolves

The Adrenaline perk can be great for solving some early problems (e.g. direwolves overwhelming you before you have much chance to act; orcs charging and stunning you; goblins netting/poisoning you before you can close on them; bandit pikemen punishing you if you move within 2 tiles of them and miss; remote targets being too obscured to hit with limited ranged skill; vampires disappearing elsewhere if you try to swarm them). The downside of it is that it’s of limited use for grizzled veterans, and then you wish you’d spent the perk point elsewhere. But it’s certainly worth considering for “expendable” characters that you don’t see being skilled enough to survive to veteran status.
