  1. Why should it not be possible to believe both things? I fail to see why this should not be a logical thing.
  2. Sorry, but this is not true and I guess you know it. In BG/BG2 you could dumb several stats with no or almost no negative effect, while in POE it does have a negative effect, while it can be viable because these points can be spend better. And imo that's fine - otherwise every attribute could have the same value, why bother?
  3. Well, afaik you can play a dumb char who does not believe her. Does Durance really believe her? I don't exactly remember his reaction, but I think he did not really agree (however I don't know if his reaction can be changed by the player). However you would be really blind thinking that only the words of Iovara have convinced. Your char experienced a lot of things which in the end point towards what Iovara is telling you. There is definitly much more proof and hint in the game that the "gods" where a creation than the opposite.
  4. Good posts. However here I have to disagree, the dilemma is not as easy as that. A further question raised is: Does knowing the truth have negative consequences? And even further: Will it have a positive effect?
  5. That happens when hubris meets lack of understanding. Descartes does not answer the question raised in PoE, because the question is related to the "no gods" plot, and not directly to the theory of cognition. So who is unaware here? And even if he would be right - Descartes' answers are flawed as hell, as he should know. I assume the reviewer is quite young - and a wannabe intellectual.
  6. The cap is perfectly fine, provided you don't do the bounties. I did almost every quest (however finished not all god quests and did not do the bounties) and hit level 12 right before the end fight.
  7. It seems you do not realize that you have not fully understood the story. I am sure that you are able to understand it however. Give it another go! It only requires reading and thinking. Btw and not related to the above: I found Defiance Bay a bit weak, because it did not give me the feeling of a city, but rather felt like a theater stage.
  8. I am sorry for you. The storyline is definitly not too complicated, if you actually read the dialogues (and think...). You missed a very cool and fresh story due to your laziness, I have never seen a story in an RPG that has such potential to make people think about our "real" world like the story of this game. So much better than the story of BG2 (a game I love so much). Hower admittedly the story fits very well to my Weltanschauung - if you are religious, it could hurt your feelings. I am really astonished that such a game has been produced in the USA (due to the story).
  9. Thank you very much, Gaze of the Adragan is the solution for the Adra Dragon. Aloth has access to this spell, I killed the dragon with a level 11 party, the only cheese I used is reload two times I did not have scale breaker skill. How to do it: Eder in front, he initiates the conversation with the dragon. Rest of the party in the back. Move Eder back (as fast as possible). Summon something to pull the dragon to the north, does not matter very much what you summon (or pull it with Eder if you have no summons). You can now pull the whole party (in the worst case Eder cannot be pulled) on the south side behind the dragon. Aloth now needs to hit the dragon with Gaze of the Adragan. If he misses, well to be honest reload. Ignore the other ememies as far as possible after Aloth hits. If Aloth hits with Gaze of the Adragan, all party members need to attack the dragon with everything they have. If possible ignore the other enemies, or use spells that hit both the dragon and the rest. The dragon should go down quite fast now. Kill the rest.
  10. Yes, please fix this. It seems I clicked accidentally and now I cannot use this ability any more.
