Clans To Play Question
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:23:15 PM »
  I had this game many years back and just re-bought it off steam in case there's more updates, so it's been awhile.

  I've previously played as: Ventrue, Malkavian , Tremere and played 1/4 through with Gangrel (and hated it).

  Currently I'm under 1/2 through as Nosferatu and enjoy it almost as much as Malkavian (Tremere was not bad either).

  Ventrue I couldn't really base much on as it was my very first game play, but I'm curious what people think whose played the Toreador and Brujah?  They just seem to be dull in my experience (with the NPC's in my other playthroughs)

  Are they even worth playing through with either Brujah or Toreador?  Or should I give the Gangrel another try (as it has been years) and just not bother with the Brujah or Toreador?

For years I was fixated with the tremere but recently I've found out the toreados is what really I love. Now I'm actually trying the gangrel, not bad at all. While I've tried ever the brujah I still won't advise against it, everybody have their gaming style, so it all depends on your tastes.

Brujah and Toreador aren't substantially different to Ventrue, dialogues are almost the same sans Dominate and an opportunity to suggest that pissant to get a job. Yeah, rich bitch with a financial capital of 50$.
Guess you would be better off with mods after the Nosferatu playthrough.

Thanks for the input, and what I was really hoping for was that there was a difference between Ventrue, Toreador and Brujah.  So they are pretty much the same other than the disciplines.

  Guess I was hoping for better unique dialogue between the 3.  Maybe I'll re-try the Gangrel then and see if I like it now.  Just can't believe I've waited this long to try the Nosferatu and found out it's almost as much fun, if not as much as playing a Malkavian...

Strictly speaking, there are some dialogue lines unique to each clan here and here, but nothing really important. Gangrel's attack animation with Protean, especially 5 lvl, is botched, it was irritating to me.

What is there apart from the haven bum and the different reaction of the Santa Monica Blueblood to Toreador, tremere and Ventrue?
Okay, each clan has a specific response when asking Bertram about the clans and you can milk some more money out of Lacroix. But I think that's it, unless you count Nossie dialogs or the few places whre the Malk talks complete bullshit.

I agree, you can't play a Gangrel without Protean and protean is unusable. And even if the claw attacks weren't so botched, this ridiculous bunny hop pisses me off every time I see it.

I never played all of the clans, but I played Toreador several times.  :razz: It's my favourite clan, plus I like playing it with characters who talk their way out of situations (although my Tremere did the same thing).

I am one of the few who isn't fond of the Malkavians . *ducks* I like my Malkavians to be less about silly outfits and nonsense talk and more about Dr. Grout-a-like appearance of sanity which conceals a pretty dark and disturbed mind underneath.

Vampires of the same clan often have unique line (specially Tremeres and Strauss). Or "opposing clans", like when you met Gary with a Torrie:
Quote
Gary: Boo!
PC: You are the most offensive and obscene thing I've ever seen.
Gary: En garde, Toreador. You vainglorious, narcissistic poseur! How I loathe that determination of your kind to belie your true nature with Paris fashions and pomp. You are a dead thing - a creature of the shadows. Start acting like one.

Tung called my nice Torrie girl "Cleopatra" and accused her of trying to butter him up, saying her silver tongue is lost on him. She was just being nice, dude!  :rofl: Gary ought to be...fun.  :razz:

Ducks? Where? Ducks are anathema! (с).

I don't remember exactly, but Anarchs are less mean to Brujah character and Gangrel has a few unique lines during the confrontation with serial murderer.

Exactly. And we can continue to quote many many other gems like those.

I figure then Issac will have unique lines then for a Toreador then.  Maybe I'll give it a try next playthough since it's been years playing Ventrue and maybe it'll seem different now for me...
