I definitely found Ukaizo underwhelming, especially the first time when I had allied with the dragon under Neketaka and so didn't have the Guardian fight-walk through a couple of empty areas, turn off the machine, a not particularly hard fight against Furrante, and that was it. Even with the Guardian fight, Ukaizo feels like denouement to a story that climaxes with the choice of faction.

I think it got a little better with some of the late-game rebalancing (guardian fight better, the faction fight less of a trivial roflstomp), but yeah, especially considering Ukaizo gets its own map I was expecting a lot more to it than just wandering from small (mostly empty) area to small (mostly empty) area.

The point is you can't always get what you want, but sometimes, you get what you need.

I.e. you cant stop Eothos, but you can help steer the future of kith, which in the end is prob more beneficial. The Gods are morons and should no longer be trusted to lead anything.

Hopefully we can ascend above them in PoE3 and do something funny. Personally I would turn Rymrgand, Berath and Ondra into pets. The first I'd  leave with the cattle, the second I would turn into a rat and Ondra would be in an aquarium. :)

I agree with this sentiment. I think for story reasons (i.e. the next game) it was necessary, but ultimately the player will have a huge guiding hand. I'm interested in seeing where everything goes.

Problem is peoples are morons too and shouldn't be trusted to lead anything either.

Thats simple, we do the same thing again:

We build bigger machines and sacrifice more people to create better gods. ;)

 

Either its works or we ruin the world completely. :p

Everything will crumble to dust eventually anyway and we will not be there to se the results of our actions because we sacrificed ourselves.

 

Somewhere in the future aliens will visit us and all they see is a bunch of immortal gods fighting each other all the time and the world is a dead wasteland.

We build bigger machines and sacrifice gods to create a... bigger God? Hopefully with more nuance, than blidely focusing on one or two "ideals".

Given Rekke's apparent monotheism, "sacrifice more gods to create a bigger God" seems like a plausible goal for the Yehuzans.

Well, some visited the Forgotten Sanctum, in that meteor. There must be more out there.

1. Sacrifice the gods and share their essence between Nemnok the Devourer and Tentaclehaut.

2. Get some candied nuts and watch the battle between the two.
