What mold should be broken? in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted September 15, 2012 Familiar: As a tactical asset, it can spy, explore, steal, poison, play tricks etc. either on enemies/neutrals or companions. It's got character (I always thought Morte was a good familiar, if overpowered as a fighter.) It's not an ugly beetle. Love this! I would love to see a familiar interact with the dialogue flow or even be a dialogue option. It could be upgradable through more than just levelling - for some reason I am thinking Unbroken Circle of Zerthimon. Having companions be able to interact with it is genius!
