Llendreth. Hot, sweaty, fuzzy, short.

 

Or does that only show up if you have an Orlan PC

 

Might be due to height. PC is dwarf. Will test ;)

Can NPC 'Mirke' have romance? Assurance?

Does it say that inside the RP, or do I really need to check the "Religion" option on my character? I could explain better, I did not quite understand that.

 

 

To clarify: I often joke about Mirke being my waifu as a light jab toward Ydwin fanatics. That said, some of my Watchers would take a shine to her if the option were available. (She's a favorite pick since her Shadowdancer combo is so fun.)

As for Xoti, I usually only have religious Watchers romance her due to RP reasons.

Say what you want, but I think Tekēhu romance is very well written and very faithful to character. Aloth (with all my love to character from PoE1) has a secondary role in PoE2, with much less impact and significance. His romance (without mod, which make it playable) feels  even less significant (not to mention delayed as much as possible) which is a shame. Non of the romance in game is the central plot piece, but Tekēhu is well developed and felt true to the story.

What are the mods that enhance or add to romance?
Do you have the links?
Are worth?

 

 

Here is the link: https://www.nexusmod...rnity2/mods/51I know there is a Rekke romance there too somewhere.

 

The mod is, obviously, fan-made. So, writing is a matter of taste here. Just try and see for yourself.

This game has some weak romances. I'm straight but I may go for Tekehu haha. He's interesting but arrogant, with one of the stronger plot ties. Maia was fine until you find out her dirty secret. I don't even recruit her anymore. Xoiti is a good pick but barely anything happens in the "romance". I miss my Jaheria :(

I've almost always gone with Xoti. Though I've yet to romance her after turning her to the dark side; may have to do that one of these days. Might not be at the Bioware-level of RPG romance, but on the positive side we're spared the Bioware-level unintentionally hilarious sex scenes.

 

The one time I wanted to try romancing Maia, it never triggered. Might not try again, as she rubs me the wrong way at times.

 

The one companion I was looking forward to romancing is unfortunately not an option. Guess I never will find out of Pallegina has a cloaca or not.

Mirke and Ydwin.

 

Too bad they are not options.

Don't lose hope. PoE3 could still solve that mystery. Specially if Hiravias comes back.

Are there any comments on PoE3?

Personally I really like Maia as a character, and was happy that they gave her a romance option. I'm still hoping that Pillars 3 drops with a Pallegina romance. lol Ydwin would have been an interesting romance, it was nice that Obsidian added what they did to her character though.

Not a clear winner among female companions. Maia is refreshingly down to earth and easy-going BUT she's a secretive nationalist with supposedly a long history of rather casual relationships from mission to mission. Xoti on the other hand seems all nice and faithful, and has hots for ya BUT she's kinda Gaun fanatic and all her life revolves around religion.

 

As of men, I think all of them are too flawed to be viable as partners although all of them seem nice enough. Save Aloth who I don't really like very much since the introduction of a reputation system.

Maia tells you what she's doing, and questions the morality of it, to the point that if you call her out on it, she'll end up being dishonorably discharged (the bad ending). If you get her 'good' ending, it says that she and the Watcher maintain a relationship and she visits as much as she can. During the conversation where Maia tells you about shooting the Island Elder, Xoti smiles about it like a weirdo. lol
