Hey guys, 

 

I was hoping someone could give me an outline of which decisions are taken in each of the pre-generated backgrounds (Hylea, Berath, Galawain, etc). I want to create a custom backstory that's a more nuanced take on the survival of the fittest backstory. Is there a Reddit thread or a table or something that lists them all?

Almost anything you do is listed there. It's pretty extensive, even minor side quests are handled. I think it's not even worth it to replay PoE I, because I think they covered everything in the custom background. I use it all the time now.

 

Why would you need someone to explain it though when you can simply try it?

The op is talking specifically about what the presets pick since the op basically wants a slightly modified version of the preset.

 

 

As for survival of the fittest. I seem to recall getting the cannon and gift of the machine. Also no breastplate so the devil didn't spare. No one was sacrificed to the blood pool.

 

That said I don't know of any listing of what exactly is set in presets so I can only try and guess from those choices whose effects I recognize in game. Probably this, https://forums.obsid...istory-summary/, is the closest that I have seen, but still rather lacking from what you want.

I don't really see why you would want to pick any of the premade ones. Takes about 40 seconds to create one for yourself.

Only if you skip all side quests, sure.

I didn't realize you could custom-make a background.  A picked a pre-made save because I had messed up the hollowborn choice and also couldn't remember all my choices in POE 1 to feel comfortable going with the imported save.

 

The pre-made definition gives you some idea of what they are, but I don't know if there's a checklist you can see.  In my game, though, I picked benevolent pre-made (because that mostly matches my original character) and:

 

-Eder was skeptic

-Aloth was anti-leaden key

-Pallegina had taken the loyalist route in the trade deal, which is good for her but bad for some people in Dyrwood

-I pledged to do what Hylea wanted with the hollowborn (return the souls to their original bodies) and got rewarded

-I got Vela

-I killed Concelhaut

-I helped that one poor lady that was messed up by Skaen to kill everyone, forget her horrible memories/not kill everyone

-I hid something that Wael asked me to hide?  I can't remember what the details of this was, even though they were familiar

-I made Thaos forget his past life memories so he could live without them

 

 

I can't remember anything else off the bat.
