  1. The Gods act like a bunch of teenagers. It's terrible. To be fair that's pretty much what most people with infinite power and zero accountability would devolve into. Because Deadfire was released with no bugs at all :D The biggest reason is that the hardest difficulty level (>LITERALLY< called "Unfair", so you kinda know what to expect) kicked everyone's asses to the moon and back. Players couldn't handle it, lost bragging rights, and had to vent somehow. You have to know the system inside out and play a well powergramed, custom group, not story companions (who are really bad). That's how highest difficulty should look like, but ezmode games like Deadfire spoiled everyone. One thing that the game doesn't prepare you for is that without any knowledge about PnP (at least D&D 3.5 if not Pathfinder), you will have a bad time, because it's very easy to completely mess up your character. Deadfire's bugs didn't make completing the game impossible. Also I started on normal (you know the basic difficulty) and got utter nonsense like running into elder elementals at level 3 and getting status effects I had no way of curing. There's plenty of well written posts on reddit about how the difficulty was excessive and it had nothing to do with people playing on unfair. The difficulty was overtuned (thankfully they toned it down so now its more reasonable though some of the random encounters are still idiotic. That could be solved with a flee option but there's not one so...). I like both Pillars and Pathfinder but Pathfinder has waaaay more bugs than Pillars did even on release. Not to mention their hotfixes introducing even more severe bugs. That said I do have hope the devs will fix this eventually and it'll be a great game when it is fixed.
  2. Seconded. Totally understand the therapeutic nature of games and immersive fantasy, but please seek some support, man. This and discuss with your doctor meds and side effects OP (assuming they bring them up. Just talking to someone works for a lot of people). If they're not willing to tell you more about the medicine then yeah I see being unwilling to take it but some of us need that extra push. As long as you go into it with your eyes wide open and willing to help them help you (the hardest part really) there's a sunrise at the top of that hill. It just takes longer for some of us to reach than others. Also if you're not comfortable with your doctor/therapist you don't have to stay with them. You get nothing out of it if you're not comfortable enough to help them help you.
  3. Pardon me but I'm not sure what you're asking here? Which companions leave? Like I wrote, Pallegina, Maia and Tekehu... Am I missing something? I'm not sure if Eder really leaves but the whole situation is kinda weird. If you play as an orlan and ask him if he has feelings for you he'll give you a pretty racist reason ("but you're an orlan... you know what they say about orlans... but you're not like one of them") and I guess Watcher reacting with rage would be understandable. But if you are a guy or a not-an-orlan-gal (what happens if you play as an orlan guy?) and Eder just tells you that his life was kinda ****ed and he never got closure with Elafa and then you respond with "get out!!!" that's kinda??? Undeserved and overblown really. I went to wikia to check Serafen's ending and apparently he can also leave due to "low reputation". i think it could also be linked to Crookspur when he confronts you about slavery (when you buy Handsome Eliam). I remember you can either try to placate him or be aggressive about it so maybe that's the moment where he can leave? Eder does leave if you ask him too and confirm it. I did it for science That was my more petty Watcher with a "If I can't have it I don't want it near me." attitude.
  4. Yeah my slave PC only really had dialogue dealing with the slavers and Skaen had a comment I think. Otherwise it didn't really come up.
  5. In plenty of lore gods are extremely childish. Having vast amounts of power and no accountability doesn't lead to maturity. And I never got the impression the gods were supposed to be lustrous. That was the whole point of the reveal in POE1 was showing they were people with far more powers than most (and were still reliant on humans to do their dirty work.)
  6. Rick messing with the wheel to make a point about inept gods or selling adra as a drug/energy source two galaxies over seems perfectly in character tbh Yes but that's when they had the VAs record almost all the lines. They stopped doing that before DAI came out however it's also what made me so amused because they still recorded some of Male Shepard's VA with a continuing Kaidan romance (not all of them but enough) that it was intentional xD. That said it being a stereotype for Solas to be bi is absurd. Especially given BW's history of having their main plot related males be straight. It was just a really silly excuse. Lmao I wouldn't be surprised by either of those.
  7. To be fair the devs said the main reason they didn't do bi Solas was because they didn't want to have a bi evil guy. (What's Bull supposed to be in that case is anyone's guess).
  8. Yeah I wouldn't mind the Iselmyr thing if Aloth was in on it. Then I'd be like "Okay I find that a bit odd but you three have fun!" as it is though it's just terribly awkward. Well least it's easily avoidable. There's just so many minefields in that I'm just like naaah. And while I do feel Aloth can be rude everyone can be rude. It's pretty clear that an Awakened spirit and it's host can have pretty much nothing in common so the whole Iselmy=Aloth thing completely misses me. She was his past life yes. that doesn't mean they're the same person now. Especially not with how souls in Eora seem to go weird overtime.
  9. I thought BSN in general was a corrupted place. Glad they shut it down tbh, it was unhealthy. More unhealthier for the devs who had to read those insane rants. I am with you on Eder I liked the BSN but something in the site went completely to **** after DA2's release. It became so toxic I see why they closed it. ME3 only added gasoline to the fire. So yeah I see why the devs closed it down that constant abuse was tiresome to me I couldn't imagine how I'd felt if it was directed at me.
  10. Nah, man. Have you ever seen Tali romance threads? As a rule of thumb, I nope out of a thread as soon as a photoshopped wedding photo appears. That tali sweat thread. Jesus christ. That and the wonder if Fenris had lyrium in his...ahem. But I'm mostly eh on Eder now. I miss my bro who woke my PC up from nightmares
  11. Agreed. Once you get past the absurdly difficult fights things go back to being decent. The boar drake fight is obscene (like why are they both above the PC's level and boss like enemies? When you only have 3 people who thought that was a good idea?)
  12. I felt it was less making excuses for his father and more acknowledging the pressure he was under. He's more angry at his mother for completely ignoring the issue.
  13. Oh so they'll fix that but keep him bugged otherwise? Nice one devs really a valuable thing to patch
  14. the watcher's too creepy but the awakened spirit sharing a body isn't?
