List of Ass-checks (II)

Post by Stansfield » November 4th, 2014, 8:26 am

this thread is simply a copy'n'paste duplicate from Frozyx's original thread, created with their permission and on request. Any new information or addendum's to the list of 'Ass-checks' found in Wasteland 2 should be submitted in this thread; if there are any questions or the list isn't getting updated, definitely please PM me. I can promise that a new message will catch my attention ;)

From Frozyx's original:
frozyx wrote:I tracked down all checks on Kiss/Smart/Hard Ass in my recent playthrough, mostly b/c i didnt use any and i wanted to know what i miss, but also to see what levels are necessary for the different areas for better char planning. The list is not necessarily complete, as i might have missed NPCs, some storylines and maybe even checks following a previous ass-check. I also played HP, so AgC is obv missing.

I added some notes when the ass-check are a bit more relevant than just giving a few infos and XP - if i know about it or actually remember ;)

Looks like you're missing the Hard Ass (level 3?) check in Highpool to get Vulture's Cry's equipment back from the shopkeep. It's probably one of two Hard Ass checks that matter.

No problem, and thank you Drool. I haven't myself attempted Highpool yet, focused on a completionist run saving Ag Center. I toss that up there and update as it comes :)

Edit: Just did a quick check on a 'Let's Play' I follow and it's a Hard Ass level 2 check on Harold.
