  1. I did nearly everything except the bounties, the Endless Paths, and a few quests that would've been out of character, and I went into the final fight about halfway to level 11. So not completionist-minus-those-two-things, but pretty close. You could perhaps reach 11 without them.
  2. The simple fact that their deities have separate portfolios and areas of control implies a belief in some restrictions/rules on the gods, rather than omnipotence.
  3. The fact that they have to act through humans. They gain power from human souls not from something else. The vision with Thaos where the game pretty much says he creates Woedica. Thaos never saying it isn't true only refusing to answer you instead. The fact that Eothas appears to be dead or at least missing and was killed by a bomb made by humans, even if a God told them how to make it. Iovara is also not the only one who implies they aren't real gods, there are the two Pwygra in Twin Elms. If they really were all powerful beings that existed from the beginning of time why do they need human worship? I thought they came first? Why can they not enter the world directly if they supposedly created it? Seriously think about it. There are plenty of hints in game beyond Iovara just "saying it". The Thaos stuff comes after Iovara, and the gods being created is certainly not an assumption I'd jump to from any of the rest of it; why automatically assume gods in this culture are supposed to be omnipotent rather than simply really powerful? Why assume anything about them? As for the sisters in Twin Elms, perhaps; I think something about the order I chose my responses made that statement not come up for me, though, since Aloth said something afterwards about them having said that and I had no idea what he was talking about.
  4. Oh, I looked for options to not immediately believe what she said; if I recall correctly, the closest was more NO IT CANNOT BE TRUE! D: than a simple "I don't believe you."
  5. I found the speed at which we just accepted Iovara's statements ridiculous and rather annoying as well, especially as she was offering no proof. My character's been a priest for potentially decades, likely grown up believing in the gods, and some random spirit tells her "oh hey btw the gods were created by the Engwithans because they couldn't find any others" and she just accepts it as true immediately? As does everyone else? No scepticism?
  6. Honestly, if they just put the mechanics gloves in some shop at a high price, I think I'd be mostly happy. That said, I'm not going to be thrilled if PoE2 actually has more interesting items and they're distributed randomly/sometimes not at all.
  7. I assumed the vision at the end was them creating all the gods. Why just Woedica?
  8. Steam patches are always pretty big. Nothing Obsidian can do about that, I gather.
  9. This is really more a 4-point scale with no 0/5 labelled option.
