Should this thread fail to help you like her, there is always an option of getting another priest. If you have Beast of Winter, the sidekick Vatnir is one. Unless you need Xoti for her subclass spells, perhaps he can fill the role. Otherwise, there are always customizable adventurers.
It's an issue if you really want to play with full fledged party members and not just a bunch of people that are just there. I get the feeling that Obsidian simply hates priests. In the first game we have Durance who is such a dumb and annoying character that I just kill him every time I enter the area where you can pick him up. Xoti is no exception. She's also an idiot and possibly even more annoying because not only is she incredibly stupid, she has the most obnoxious accent and is fanatically religious. There is no way to like this character if you are of average intelligence or higher. And in beast of Winter we get a guy who spearheads a bunch of lunatics and looks like he died 5 times.
I'm serious it's on purpose. They're all a bunch of deranged idiots.
well i think you're making an err in judgement that you think you have to like characters as people for them to be interesting. durance is incredibly important to the plot of that game so good job on killing him
its crazy how much people hate southern accents lol are you a yank or euro
Hey now, I don't hate southern accents. I hate her rendition of it. And I think it doesn't match the game at all. Truth be told, a southern accent in (pop) culture is loosely tied to being stupid. I didn't create that bias. It's the same with eastern accent in my country. You know the people that don't speak the language like the larger part ofthe west speaks. They are mostly small villages with more farmers. They are also tied to being stupid, even though that is obviously not the case. What is the case is that the views of these people are far more limited than the people in the big city areas. So stupid may not be the best choice in words, but you know what i'm trying to say.
That, and I must say that the southern US accent is very very ugly. Sounds really bad to me. I don't hate it, but I don't like it. And I remember meeting someone who lived in Texas for 2 years. He told me it was the worst 10 years of his life. Because of how narrowminded people were and how, if you didn't "belong" or were from another area how much aggression and ignorance people showed you. So it's not just the accent, but the people in the southern part also have a different way of looking at the world. They also mostly vote for Trump, so I can finish my case there.
And Durance is not important to the plot at all. None of your party members are. They add minor fluff to the game. I've put about 600 hours into the game and finished each and every quest and played with all party members. If I had to give credits to a single party member it would be Grieving Mother. The fact that Durance's backstory is actually very interesting doesn't make it more important. He is simply far to dumb and annoying to enjoy that part.
