My experience with Xoti was quite something. I consistently encouraged her to pursue Maia, told Maia to go for Xoti, and then near the end of the game Xoti decided it was the time to talk about her feelings... for Eder. When I said that she might be a bit too young for him she suddenly got all flirty and asked who wasn't she too young for (hinting at me, from my impression), at which point I had options to tell her to bugger off, to remind her about Maia or to kiss her. All of that while I was already in a relationship with another character.
So my guess is that it's almost impossible to botch her romance. You can throw her at Eder, you can trow her at Maia (and Maia might even catch her), but she will still remain available to you.
 
 

Yes she flirted, I turned her down, we did her quests and had several conversations on the boat. I just never brought her along in party other then her quest.


 
I should have been more specific, sorry. What I meant was did Maia have any conversation available after you lock yourself in on the huana route? Because I read that she will only have a "Maia is angry and wouldn't talk to you" line over her head after that.


 
 
 

I left maia on the boat during my huana run and she stayed. Maybe because I didn't go to see Hazanui and reject her offer.


 
As far as I know Maia would be alright with you rejecting Hazanui's offer, because, uhhh, I'll hide it just in case since it's a bit spoilery.

Did she talk to you at all on the huana route?

Aloth spontaneously decided that the best time to chat 'feelings' was when the party was hiding between 6 tripple skull mobs, and an un-killable trap...

 
Man, that's the best time for romance. What kind of an adventurer are you? :p

 
  A reminder on this thread - discuss people's points not themselves.  If you can't refute someone's argument without trying to psychoanalyze them (including trying to determine "why" they're "really" posting the way they post), then you are doing something wrong.

Boy am I confused.

 

Anyway, I also had Xoti hit on my Watcher when they were already romancing someone else, but that was before the latest patch. I didn't have it happen in my last game. On the other hand, I didn't have Eder in my party either; the bugged (?) conversation may be tied to him.

I think there are flirts which are natural parts of her dialogue regardless whether you romance her or not, and then there is the lock-in conversation where she tells you she likes you. Or something...

I'd agree with this, I had a minor freakout last night because I stuck up for her when Eder was having a go at her, and she randomly grabbed my hand and started telling me how awesome I was... 

 

Since this is my 5th attempt at an Aloth romance now, I'm really hoping it's "just her", because I'm not sure I can stomach another starting sequence just yet  :facepalm:

At least we can skip the "long walk" part of the starting sequence now. Very handy for those folks who have alt-itis. I, of course, am not one of those folks. I'm, um, playtesting. Yeah.

In the absence of an in-game reward, I apparently can't be bothered to romance anyone.  Case in point: TekÄ“hu reserved that room at the Wild Mare weeks ago.  Meanwhile, my Watcher is exploring literally every scrap of land in Deadfire.

Awkward!

Hey, if he can't be bothered to come to your cabin instead of waiting for a return to Neketaka, obviously it's not that important.

You can only skip the irritating slow walk at the beginning. It's still too long imo.

On another note, you get flirty options even if you are in a romance. I got one to hold Tekehu's hand after turning him down and another to say some crap like "anything for you Xoti" (eek!) when I was already on the Alothmance.

Also, when on the ship you can roll up to Serafen and try some incredibly cheesy pick-up lines on him. He shots you down though.  :biggrin:

I actually didn't take the holding Hand thing as a flirty thing. More like back in poe1 with Aloth, a 'It is okay, I am here' thing... especially with Tekehu feeling really... young- More like holding a kids hand through a scary experience.

Weird... I thought he swung every possible way... ;( 

I'll have to look up his 'preferences' before my next play through, I don't want any weird Aloth style hiccups for my debauched pirate run  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:
