  1. Moon Godlike is Ondra's. If you play one you are called Ngati's child. Just like Tekehu. It seems Godlike can show various aspects of divine portfolio. It would be cool if Moon Godlike were one of Eothas aspects (there is some interesting theory about it in Deadfire).

     

    I thought Nature Godlike could be blessed by Eothas as he had some ties with nature by spring and agriculture themes. But yeah, Nature Godlike are definitively Galawain's as he is a patron of the beasts and wild life.

     

    Death Godlike is really strange. It is stated they are Berath's children but they have some characteristics for Rymrgand's domains like bad luck and disasters. They are also very bony and fleshy (decay domain?). 

     

    Fire Godlike: Magran. Although some people connected them with Eothas as fire is also his element (the sun).

     

    My thoughts for another types:

     

    Skaen and Woedica can look similar as both have deformed faces. A lot of scars and burns.

    Abydon: I see them as metal-like creatures. Probably similar to the Eyeless.

    Rymrgand: Ice and white skin. Some aurochs' features.

    Wael: No eyes. Maybe some kind of androgyny.

    Hylea: Birdlike with colorful feathers. Maybe some of them are more animal-like than human.

    Eothas: Their skin covered with light and sparks like ethereal beings. Headshapes similar to the sun rays. Spring variant similar to Nature Godlike.

  2. Eothas is too perfect. Nothing can stop and destroy him. I think it was a mistake to involve him with big scale story. I would prefer if it was more personal, hell I thought that Watcher probably had one part of Waidwen's soul (like in Hiravias splintered soul quest), so that's why Eothas stole it. But nope. It was only McGuffin leading you to Deadfire. Such wasted potential here.


  3. It's like with gods in previous game. They show up and become important too late to understand what is going on. Ok, you heard about Magran, Eothas, Berath but half of game is about animancy and Hollowborn crisis. Same with Deadfire. Half or more of a game is about factions and their conflicts. Only Huana quests tell you a little about Ukaizo and that's all. Main story is disconnected from rest of the game so there is no building. Except Port Maje and Hasongo I like the most. People are talking about things, thinking about things. They see what is happening. They care.

     

    I really wish there were more quests about world metaphysics like these in Spire.

  4. The game had many reactions to the priests of Eothas. Much, much more than POE1 or White March. But like it was said there was only one conversation with Eothas, two or three with Tekehu and Eothasian groups, not only Dawnstars. I was suprised Xoti had none or it were bugs. I will be playing once again when game systems are fixed.


  5.  

    You can be his priest, their is no problem with it

    I mean side with him in the plot and against berath and the other gods, He's my second favorite POE god after Abydon( wael and galawain are up there too but we haven't seen too much of them yet honestly)

     

    Josh Sawyer confirmed you can side with Eothas but what that truly means is yet to discover.


  6. I can't see a problem. Berath chose you tu hunt Eothas in his name not to become his priest. That's a favour for saving your life. It doesn't matter if you are Eothasian, Magranite, druid, rogue or whatever. You owe your life to Berath, that's what matters, because  you decide to hunt Eothas. I don't remember if you can lie and pretend you go in Berath's name.


  7. Our Watcher lives because Berath has some purpose. And there may be some roleplaying reason if you support him in Pillars. Or you are Death Godlike.

     

    As White March is about Abydon-Ondra relation I think Deadfire tells us about Berath-Eothas. Can't wait to learn what's going on.

     

    And probably Berath is 5th faction as there is snake-like eternity symbol in reputation wheel: http://eternityproject.pl/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/pillars-of-eternity-2-deadfire_6022004-600x338.jpg

     

    We know Huana worshipp Berath as eels.

  8. What interests me is what happens

    If you choose to empower Woedica with the souls at the end of Pillars 1.

     

     

    Will you then continue to be a priest of Eothas, or get a new and possible otherwise unobtainable priest subclass.

    You are still priest of Eothas as you can choose one in the beta. It's more like a Skaen ending than Woedica and if you decide to betray him, there are really nasty things happening. But it's bugged so you cannot see ending slide but you can find one in files. I don't think they will build something big due to ending choices, probably it will be more like some kind of cosmetic reactivity.

    big funny for poe priests were wael.  in poe you could get a couple extra lines o' wael dialogue, but only a couple.  the irony being you needed at least a couple tiers o' honesty disposition to access 'em.

     

    HA! Good Fun!

    Yes, the Wael priestess did not believe my Wael priest when I said I had given that book back to Wael, because I had used every opportunity to increase my dishonesty score. 

     

    It is so counter-intuitive for an RPG that lying makes you worse at lying. Word really gets around that I pretended I didn't have a bad dream. 

     

    Wow. I heard priest of Wael is huge mistake in this game  :o

  10. Another round with modern music:

     

    Eothas again (unfortunately, no lyrics for symphonic version):

     

     

    Eothasian Watchers' Hymn:

     

     

    Troubles at the sea:

     

     

    Sea theme (German):

     

     

    Translation: 

     

    Come with me to the sea
    to go on a ship
    come with me to the sea
    to see the world
    come with me to the sea
    go with the tide
    come with me to the sea
    to see the storm
     
    Come with me to the sea
    go with the course
    come with me to the sea
    to see the new land
    come with me to the sea
    to understand freedom
    come with me to the sea
    even if we go under
     
    From a distant world, I come.

  11. If you never finish her quest, she will be.... a fighter? Fig update about returning companions says 'Regardless, Vailian interests pull her into the archipelago, whether as an elite champion, a disgraced soldier, or a humble Kind Wayfarer.' 

     

     Or maybe disgraced soldier is a paladin without order? Elite champion is Brotherhood one and Kind Wayfarers happen when she disobeys orders.


  12. Played with:

     

    Priest of Eothas/Fury Druid (Universalist) - lovely caster! Fury makes crazy damage (it cannot heal instead) and its electric spiritshift is good for range. (Ranged weapon)

     

    Priest of Eothas/Kind Wayfarer Paladin (Templar) - more tank hybrid with defensive buffs from priest. A lot of healing and support. (Two handed style)

     

    Priest of Eothas /Shattered Pillar Monk (Contemplative) - crazy DPS build!  Your wound limit is decreased but you are more enduring than Helwalker monk (huge DPS but death comes faster). (Two weapon style.)

     

    Ghost Heart Ranger/Fighter (Hunter) - I think this is the best way to build ranger in melee. As you can summon animal as a ghost it is immune to engagement and have no penalty if it dies. And fighter is the best melee class for now (grazes, weapon styles, etc). Have wolf but bear is better. (Two weapon style)

     

    Soulblade Cipher/ Transmuter wizard (Hierophant) - very good offensive build in melee. Soul Anihilation inflicts raw damage and it more easier to use it than cipher spells (focus too slow? Or bad penetration) Transmutation spells are good replacement for evocation school (which you cannot use). And you cannot use enchantment school so no buffing yourself. Good help for main melee characters.(Weapon and shield style).

     

    Summoner chanter/ wizard (Loremaster) - ranged build focused on spamming summons. Wizard spells more defensive as your summons are weaker than usual but in greater number. 

     

    Skald chanter/Lifegiver druid (Theurge) - ofensive build as skald needs to be in melee to cast invocations. Lifegiver druid is so-so as there is is small number of healing spells. Maybe high level druid is worth of it.

     

    Shifter druid good for martial hybrid like fighter/monk/paladin.

  13. Th

     

     

    Is Eothas god of death now?   ;(

     

    I think he's always meant to be one, actually, as a counterpart to Berath. They both look after the cycle of life and death, so both are gods of life and death, after a fashion. Also, according to the Guidebook Gaun goes around "reaping" people he thinks have lived long enough.

     

     

    No Suppress Afflictions for priest of Eothas? Bummer! I knew that protection ban will be painful. Still don't get why the most benevolent god has it banned. :(


    Perhaps because he's also a Old Testament style destructive and judgmental god who led his most devoted worshippers into a gruelling war that broke two nations. He can be described as benevolent, but he's not a not just a straightforward lawful good god of righteousness and good feels.


     

    Btw, Eothasian priests can suppress afflictions by applying inspirations.

     

    The priest classes are so different from the others in customization and playability that I can only think they're unfinished. And the devs are probably getting the message, because I haven't seen a single positive statement about the priest class anywhere on these forums yet.

     

    This. That's why I never understand favored behaviours for him: Benevolent and Honest. Maybe Honest is right (in Eothasian Prayer there is a fragment when he would burn you if you work in hidden or shady ways). But Benevolent? I think Passionate suits him better. Even in POE1 if you play as priest of Eothas your specific dialogues often have Passionate tag. Benevolent always sounds more Hylean to me. 

     

    And some Eothas' domains changed in deity description in character creation  :blink:

     

    I agree priest classes feel unfinished for now. I think the best is Berath as it is the most similar to priest from POE1. Tried to play Magran. It was meh because I didn't know you needed high perception and dexterity for good accuracy and shorter casting times for battle spells  :getlost: Also no healing.
