Eh I did not mean romance in particular, more like an established friendship, where you already have some history with the character. Those will always be a priority to me. For the same reason I always keep Eder and Pallegina in the party, because they are friends to my char. For the same reason I kept Jaheira, Minsc and Imoen in BGII and then Sarevok in ToB, because history. (forgot Viconia, her too)

 

My cynical old soul stopped believing in love at first sight :grin:

 

Oh that's what Eder is for. He's my perma bro. :p (Also the one that always takes all the hits :devil:  )

 

tell me he still is carrying that shield you get from the smith that look like a door..

 

otherwise...Ouach!

I demand an Eld Engrim-focused romance DLC.

 

Add Oswald at this point for a three some.

And that old man from the bathing house.

 

 

I doubt they will pass a constitution check :D

Aloth was one of my favorite companions in PoE I, and I was looking forward to the whole relationship that is carried through a few games thing, be it romance of friendship. Especially since my Watcher was a nerdy wizard pretty similar to Aloth, so it felt like they should naturally connect.

 

But here comes Deadfire, and Aloth just wouldn't approve of anything I do (but would gladly disapprove of my every joke), and my heart is a bit broken. Aloth why can't we be good friends dammit?  :unsure:

It's a giant hunk of adra so he should be okay? Mostly.
 
Shoving him infront of my enemies is my way of showing I care :p

I am replaying POE1 and I realized that I am always putting Eder to block the doors. Poor guy. Happens when you travel with two squishy elves.

There's an approval cheat for him that I used because yeah.

Same. I give my characters 3 con too as you can imagine I'm not overly pleased when those cutscenes happen that force them into the front and they get instant gibbed.

Yeah he seems a complete jackass in this. 

 

When I talk to him he replies.. 'Can I HELP YOU with something' in an irritated voice. PFFT!

 

Get off my ship if you're gonna be like that!

I'm just sitting over here hoping that is this indeed bug. After all the developers did say companion relationship system is bugged. And considering he has both stewardship and autonomy dispositions at the same time (and this is a confirmed bug), I would assume that one of them (which one depends on Aloth being pro- or anti-Leaden Key) is taking place of some other, because otherwise he gets too few dispositions (and less than other companions), which doesn't make sense. 

Still disappointed though, that all returning companion conversations take twice as less time than full romance route with the new ones.

I know but that's kinda immersion breaking for me, so after he gave me the Thaos talk I just gave him the boot for rp reasons. My Watcher would be greatly offended to be compared to Thaos by the very person who used to be a Leaden Key agent and wouldn't come clean about it for about 3/4 of the first game. 

 

So... yeah. I guess my relationship with Aloth was fulfilling in its own way, if a bit melodramatic  :facepalm:

oh Aloth is bugged all right and so are the others . Hopefully the patch will fix them and their quest and their approval and all . 

 

But so far, he is the most bugged of the lot . At least for me .

From what I understand the only bug is him having conflicting dispositions. Maybe disposition gain/loss system needs to be reviewed so when you say something they dislike the hit is not so large and when you say something they like the gain is not so small. Right now it feels skewed towards negative.

I can confirm he doesn't dislike jokes though, he is neutral to them. Its the type of joke and context that matters, so don't know how much it will change when devs review the system.

I have Aloth at 2 disposition (without cheating) and my character is still a smart-ass to almost everyone.

no..

 

His..uh..how to say...I went with 'Kind' pre-made save and he was Leaden key leader . So that's like bug..

 

also...his personal quest is bugged like hell...couldn't finish it . And the ending slider for him is screw up as well . 

 

And I only got 2 dialogues with him . So yeah..bugged bugged...

 

the others companions , the only bug I have with them is mostly missing dialogues here and there and some of them triggering too fast .

Maia ask him if he is reading anything interesting in banter. He is very enthusiastic to talk about it.

 

 

She also told him to not blow up the ship once.

Ah sorry, I keep on forgetting that I created the states not imported them. So he is less bugged in my game... Its the import in general that is messed up.
