I loved PoE I, and I love the setting, writing and atmosphere of PoE 2. However, having played for a while, the mix of difficulty spikes and bugs is getting to be too frustrating. For example: I have set combat levelling to full in the difficulty settings. The Tikawara related quests are not marked as too difficult for me in my journal. I sail to Tikawara, complete a few quests, and eventually pick up the quest that asks me to travel to the Poko Kohara ruins. Outside the ruins, I promptly meet a golem that it far too difficult for my level 7 party to defeat. Fine, so I return to Neketaka, thinking that I should complete simpler quests there, such as The Cornett's Call. I had been asked some time ago to meet Dereo in Delver's Row, but had so far not done it. I make my way to delver's row and meet the thug who guards Dereo's hideout via a bridge. My journal states that I should tell the thug that Dereo had sent for me. However, no such dialogue option is available - obviously a bug. I have not found a workaround for this yet, and it is frustrating not to be able to resolve the quest. So, in the end, unpredictable difficulty and bugged quests have made this a very frustrating experience. Can anyone convince me to keep going?
