What should i buy? TQ AE or Ragnarok?
« on: 31 December 2017, 21:53:58 »
I was about to buy TQ Anniversary edition from steam but then i saw titan quest ragnarok. Can anoyone tell me what is going on?

What is the difference between the 2 games? I have only played TQ vanilla and IT so i dont know anything about those expansions.

Which one do you all play?

Ragnarok is just an expansion, it requires TQ Anniversary Edition to even be played. So I suggest buying Titan Quest AE then Ragnarok. I, as of now, am only playing Anniversary Edition without Ragnarok.

Hey Typhon thanks for the reply. Does TQ anniversary support all the goodies like tq vault and tq defiler etc? Does anyone still play TQ IT?

I'm sure people still play TQ IT through means like Gameranger or whatever else enables multiplayer on older games, since Gamespy servers went down (I only ever played Singleplayer.) I've heard many people say that TQ Vault still works but Ol' Defiler doesn't seem to work with it. It still detects your characters, however, and allows you to change their stats but mods and all that that was pre-installed with the program don't work due to it not being able to find the game.

Pazuzu, the AE version is a 10th Anniversay one that Nordic put out to celebrate 10 years of TQ which was released in 2006.  It has both TQ and IT, it's all one game now with that version plus things like the Bugfix Patch and spectre's patch for the patch are included.  The Ragnarök expansion only came out a few weeks ago and adds an Act 5 set in the northern countries and has a new Rune mastery too.  TQDefiler doesn't work with the AE or expansion as far as I know, though you can see your toons still - whether you can edit I don't know since I never use it for that.  GDDefiler will work with AE - but doesn't have the various mods like freeze time of day, etc, in it yet, but doesn't recognise toons that have been in the expansion.

TQVault that works with the expansion is here:

http://titanquest.4fansites.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12241

or here:

https://www.kirmiziperfect.com/titan-quest-anniversary-edition-caravan-xl-mod/

There's an updated TitanCalc for AE and the expansion here:

https://www.kirmiziperfect.com/titan-quest-anniversary-edition-calculator/

As for the TQCollector - only the gods know when anyone will update that again.   There is an updated version for AE here:

https://www.kirmiziperfect.com/titan-quest-anniversary-edition-tq-collector-tool/

but it was already missing about 6-7 items before the expansion came out.

I bought the anniversary edition for now, im giving it a try. Yea it is more balanced from what i can see. I think there is no point in buying ragnarok for now, maybe i ll consider it whenever i finish act 4.

I don't know if anyone else has had the same experiences as me, but I was not a fan of TQVault XL at all. The version I downloaded from kirmiziperfect was a mess (with the expansion). It had huge chunks of missing data which prevented me from even using a lot of my stash tabs.
If anyone else is having issues with it, I'd much more recommend TQVault (sans XL - the XL is basically useless now anyway considering the default TQVault is of the same size). It is updated for Ragnarok without the missing data points. It can be found here: https://github.com/EtienneLamoureux/TQVaultAE/releases

Hmm, I wonder ;)

In all seriousness: I'll probably post a beta version with Ragnarök support sometime this week.

That is great news Malgardian.  :)  It's such a useful tool for seeing what you've got so far and what's missing.  Thanks in advance.

It is interesting that all my old tq data and even the shared vault are there.  Do we know if the old tq vault can be used with AE? Also have there been changes to sets and items? i saw a kingly preffix earlier so i guess they put them back to the game, although it did not have the imba stats of the old. If anyone can give me a detailed post about the changes in ae id really appreciat it. BTW i have already read the short post of nordic games about what AE is all about, im just looking for a more detailed review about it.

No, the old Vault won't work with AE.  You need one of the new ones.

Yes, things like "of the Betrayer" and "of the Siren" are back in the game.

Changelogs are here:

Go into MyDocuments\My Games\Titan Quest (not TQIT)\TQVaultData and save that as a backup somewhere.  I put mine on a key drive.  That should keep all your items safe.

Pazuzu, you should find it on kirmiziperfect.com under the TQAE section.  And yes, it will recognise your old game items.
