  1. That's actually pretty easy - those are the bodies of gods. It is said in one of those conversations with them that gods used to have physical form. And you also see a body of one in White March.
  2. For being in aft/fore line the enemy gets an extra malus to accuracy (same for player if you try to T-bone the enemy). But if the hit.. they hit hard, all shots along the line of the ship are raking shots.
  3. He’s not alone, I like the turn based combat and I like hunting ships for loot/bounties. You have to accept there are players who like this aspect of the game just like I accept there might be players not liking it. But if you hunt ships for loot.. Boarding is the best way to do it anyway. Boarding gives more loot than just sinking the ship as far as I understand the tutorials. And with ship having onboard a few hired adventures built for ranged destruction (I personally use bleak walker/rangers with custom AI spamming FoD/Wounding shot) you can also punch above your level in boarding.
  4. Ondra is so easy to ship with Wael. Wael wants to hide stuff from people, Ondra wants them to forget stuff. Together they are basically a recipe for Alzheimer.
  5. Lol, thinking about it - it would make a better premise for PoE II if Eothas indeed destroyed the wheel while you are still recovering from destruction of Caed Nua.. and your role is to find out how to fix it. But I guess that is the plot of PoE 3 Deadfire 2
  6. One thing about Voyager though - while it may seem a very tempting ship - it only has one purpose: full speed to board. Taking part in combat means you will get raking hits all the time due to canon placement. Even if you turn/unturn after/before firing - the window of opportunity is big for the enemy to T-bone you. Out of all the ships I consider Dhow superior against NPCs. It is very fast (I maxed at 110-115m per turn with initiative) and can hold considerable firepower. Due to speed and Jibe speed you can dictate the range of the engagement. It is the only ship on which I could reliably field the dual cannons and use them in the optimal range. And having that - sink Galleons and Junks. With Galleon I noticed that yes, you get a lot more tankiness but in the end - I needed to spend more resources repairing a galleon, as the battles became a slugging match.
  7. In the Nakataka district with Watershaper Guild - there is a herbalist store with a lot of enchanting stuff, in left-lower corner. I found a brain there.
  8. Doesn't Serafen get a "turning point" at a different spot? When Furriante asks you to help the slavers he gives the player the talk on how slavery is a breakpoint for him. I guess having him in the party while strucking a deal with slavers might trigger his leave.
  9. Vallian Trading Company - "we're ****, but at least we are honest about it!".
  10. Actually.. They discussed both. God can posses a godlike (they do have a strong link to them, chat with Teheku a bit and peer into his soul to see what I mean) but can also suck all their godlike children dry if necessary.
  11. It was mentioned in POE1 that Engwithans searched for the real gods and found none, so they've decided to create them. Though they may be artificial ones but they're very real at least. It is mentioned, but it still doesn't mean there are no gods. They just found none. Maybe there were gods who created Eora and then just left? I mean, look at RL - we have as much proof of gods not existing as we have proof of any god existing - so literally none for both options. We could as easily conclude "there are no gods", jsut would need to convince more population to that belief. There is a reason why religion is in sphere of belief not facts. I interpreted it more like they were disappointed by lack of any response from the gods and concluded there are none. Or if they are - they don't give a **** which is as depressing. So they made gods that "work properly". (sidenote: I still don't get why they create the trollgod Rymrgand, he basically behaves like he was made from those Engwithans that opposed the whole concept and just wanted to die out. Every god has a role that directly ties with kith somehow, Rymrgand is actually above that and above other gods in a way. He is a force of nature - entropy)
  12. Fixing the Wheel is actually the core of Eothas's plan. It's a test for the kith- they're meant to find a solution to the Wheel's destruction, and in the process they'll grow beyond the need for the gods. It also gives them an opportunity to stop powering the gods leaving them out of the new Wheel, if the kith don't want to continue serving them after learning the truth about their creation. This makes no sense at all. If 'gods' and reincarnation were created by Engwithans, who created souls and everything else? Whoever it was - abandoned Eora or is inactive/ does not intervene. The artificial gods do not exclude existence of actual gods.
  13. The second one actually makes a lot of sense. In a way - the first denial as well. None of those two are idiotic. After events of PoE1 Watcher can be absolutely in the "I'd rather die than be a pawn of gods" position, which is understandable. Have you met the gods? I actually almost died in my first PoE2 playthrough right there, because my default stance was exactly "I ain't touching that ****". The choice of course is not the one of the Watcher, because for my Watcher the answer was absolutely "FU, return me to the wheel". The choice was mine of a gamer - ok, I agree to go with this because I want to play the game. BTW - After all Berath does not threaten with killing you - you *are* pretty much dead. She offers to actually cheat The Wheel for you as long as you agree to be her stooge. And in the second spoilerific case - well, have you seen Watchmen? A very similar scene happens for a very similar reason - you might be against overwhelming odds and have literally zero chance, but it is the question of not bending over but standing by your morals/conviction - that what is going to happen is wrong.
  14. Considering throwing them is quiet.. can you just sit in stealth and throw 3-4 bombs, then move back so they dont find you, repeat?
