I installed the 2nd patch a while ago, 68MB iirc.   It has helped with performance from what I can tell so far.  I played for about an hour after making sure it didn't break anything, which it didn't.  I would lag at times when driving fast but that seems to have improved a good bit so no complaints from me.

I'm at work and just thought of this, won't be able to check for myself until tonight. Will someone list the skills/talents, what have you that increase XP gains, I tried googling on break and cannot locate any such list.

I haven't been keeping track of what gives you XP but of course the obvious ones apply, finishing missions, any type.  Doing the side stuff like privacy intrusions etc.   The type of combat you do, like takedowns and or headshots and so on.

I meant like permanent XP bonuses for all or certain activities, from skills.

OH, so you mean the skill tree or w/e?  There's hacking bonuses, combat, driving and I think there's a fourth but I forgot, crafting iirc.  You unlock new stuff from crafting and hacking.  Combat and Driving just boost your "skill" in those areas etc, though combat unlocks some new tools as well.   The other stuff you get is from doing different side missions and so on, like if you complete the first 10 out of 40 or w/e you unlock either a new weapon or a new car etc.

Thanks for the reply, I did end up getting it last night and played for 2/3 hours. I purposely didn't do much story due to time, instead I went ahead and got a couple cell towers, fixer missions and 45ish/100 hotspots :p

P.S. The patch was only ~120MB

 

Ah yes, the patch was quite small, that's why i didn't remember it. It's a really good game, kinda miss playing it now heh heh. The hotspots are fun, just keep in mind please that they are not to be taken seriously. The mix of fact and fiction set in a random city with mountains and islands that calls itself Chicago, IL is the only aspect of Watch Dogs that i did not like. So it's important to not take the city locations or anything else too seriously...but otherwise enjoy, and make sure to do the "magnifying glass" investigations, they're quite good.

The map actually says "XP" under activities that give you XP. Otherwise it'll say cash or reputation. Some activities at first give you XP, but after a certain number of times revert to just cash or rep.

Thanks.i haven't really gotten time to play, normally just learn on my own haha I assume ctOS towers unlock at certain story mode points? I've only seen two on my map so far, but I do separately have all 100 hot spots for the achievement and some extra skills, I think that's how I got increased focus. Trying to get most currently available side stuff done before moving on in the story even though I'm only on like mission 3, act 1 lol

Nice and slow is the way to do it! And i think cTOS towers are available from the get go, or at least the command centers are, which when cleared unlock the towers. Only a few towers and command centers are story-related.

Yes, most definitely, and actually advisable to do them after the events of the story because Aiden takes on slightly enhanced abilities and picks up on certain things with greater frequency....
