Are these criticisms correct? in Pillars of Eternity: Characters Builds, Strategies & the Unity Engine (Spoiler Warning!) Posted June 13, 2015 That said, there are only a handful of quests in the game where your only options are either "pass a stat check" or "murder everyone." In fact, I can only really think of two that are like that--one is the previously mentioned lighthouse ghost, and the stat check is quite reasonable; the other is a very lategame quest where you either pass a Res 20 check or get in a huge fight (and frankly, for what you're attempting to do, you deserve it). There are multiple conversations in the game where you can achieve a peaceful result simply by choosing non-stat-linked dialog carefully. Two endgame enemies can be dealt with peacefully in this fashion! I assume you are not talking just about the main quest line, the "handful" is about ALL quests in the game, right?
