Toreador weak, buff plz.
All I want is to be able to boil people's blood and make them blow up into small chunky bits in HD.
As long as I have that, I am happy.
How are Toreador weak? Presence sounds like it's already gonna be much more useful than in the first game. And Celerity already was a game breaker before.
need more spells,to make for being squishy mages
Tremere already look extremely powerful, giving them more powers would be ridiculous.
Let me remind you that all of the Thaumaturgy abilities bring back blood and in two of the three cases cause AOE damage.
Also, the devs said you can be a tanky Tremere. So you don't have to be squishy.
Thaumaturgy in this game being good makes up for how awful Thaumaturgy is in the 5th edition of the tabletop game.

Do we get familiars?
only witches have familiars,vampires dont need animal pets
Honestly I was thinking more multi-eyed inter-dimensional hellhounds that sprout from your body ala Hellsing.

That reminds me, can we get Ghouls?
Hasn't been said.
I sure hope we can. Also I hope the number of Experience gained won't be limited like it was in the first game and we'll get a Playable Epilogue.
A ghoul is probable but they'll be an individualized NPC ala Heather. Possibly from a pick of candidates.
Speaking of, giev moar Courtenay Taylor.
Heather is adorable for a number of reasons. And if you're Malkavian, she's as insane as you are.
Probably one of the best things about that game. Shame there wasn't much of a ghoul customization option though.
Heather's great, but I find the whole deal rather uncomfortable and creepy - intentionally so, I'm aware, but still.
Anyway, my favorite ghoul from the last game is Vandal Cleaver, the bloodbag seller: the guy is such a complete nutcase it's hilarious. Gotta respect this quote, too:
In lore most vampires treat their ghouls absolutely horribly, so Knox, Vandal, Mercurio and Heather are much better off than their peers.
Ghouls are so addicted to vitae that they couldn't leave or betray their vampire employer even if they wanted to.
Here's the extended gameplay trailer; in the actual E3 they didn't really show it off.
Shows off one little quest with the weird Nosferatu from the trailers. Apparently Negotiation and Coercion will be two of our talky stats.

Actual gameplay cool
Looks very promising^^ I can't wait.
I especially like the dialogue options, glad to see they recognized that showing off some of the role-playing opportunities is pretty much mandatory.
I also liked the bit where the player glided like a bat and landed on the roof of a building. It nicely showed off the verticality the devs mentioned.
Thinbloods actually seem fairly competent. Of course, they're facing off against other Thinbloods or Mortals, so they're going to do quite well.
But yeah, pretty good gameplay so far. The lipsynch could do with some polish though.
Yeah, it really looks promising. Considering it's still got almost a year in development, that's quite exciting.
Yeah, it looks like Thin-Blood very much Took a Level in Badass. Still glad we'll be able to chose a clan eventually, but I am actually looking forward to play a Thin-Blood for a while now.
My only real nitpick as it is so far is that I really hope we'll have a third-view option, ŕ la Skyrim. I usually prefer seeing my character on the screen.

I think that bit at the end when a Vampire Hunter / other full blood turns up and overpowers the PC... yeah think that shows the escalation.
Also, little point - the dancers in the background are doing the same dance from the original game!!!
Also from the speech Cara Ellison gave, there seems to be a more flowing element to the plot, with dialogue and relationships.
My god, with this, Outer Worlds, Cyberpunk I'm.... I'm going to be so backlogged up. I'll need to just book some solid time off to just clear these things. Yeesh. Pack the wife and child off to the inlaws for a week maybe...
