Side with Ruatai - Maia is their spy, Pallegina their enemy => Pallegina leaves; Also you're asked to kill the Huana leaders => guess Tekehu leaves?

Side with VaIlian trading Company - Pallegina is their bodyguard, Maia works for the opposing faction => Maia leaves

Side with the Huana - gotta blow up the Ruatai powder**** same as VTC => Suppose Maia leaves as well

Side with the Principi - nobody leaves, you take the Ghostship and fight the Huana leaders on Ukuzi or what's it called

Side with nobody - buy a ship, give it the dragon wing sail and the most expensive hull upgrade thing and just sail north when you're main-quest-stage is to follow Eothas to Ukuzi --> nobody leaves

So what I'm hearing is, once the factions lay down their "Join us" ultimatums at the palace, I can ignore the VTC, RDC and Huana, play along with the Principi until I get the ghost ship, then bail on them too and head for Ukaizo, all without losing a single companion.

 

Excellent.

Yeah that seems to have another flag that sets it. I got the Ruatai on my solo and my pirate.

That's what I did!

 

I'm not sure you can successfully take the Floating Hangman into Ondra's Mortar if you don't side with the Principi, though. I took a junk with Dragonwing Sails and Blackwood Hull and did just fine. (Taking on the Floating Hangman was worth it, though, because of the excellent Great Sword you get if you didn't agree to return it to the tomb.)

again , it was the opposite for me . I tried taking the Junk boat to the island..and got blown to pieces . Then reloaded and went with the Ghost ship + Principal ship and was able to get trough...

Apparently you also need crew with master rank crew skills if you want to pass Ondra's mortar solo

I really hope that's not true because there currently seems to be a bug where crewman with multiple talents can't go hire than expert. Or maybe that's by design, I dunno.

I romanced Maia and as far as I know, there's no way to keep her if you join the Huana's side. I tried begging as her lover and the diplomatic option, she still left.

 

What's worse, I can't side with the female pirate captain due to a glitch of quest order, and I don't like the male one. I don't have enough cash to upgrade my ship, either. So now I'm torn between Maia and Tekehu, my two favourite companions. Crap.

You can do the ghost ship quest and take the ship and just not return to the principi, thats what i did.

 

that maybe the mistake I made . Once I was done , I went back..and that was it . No way to back out . 

 

 

Yeah I did that and returned the sword. Ship kind of blows though so I ended up going back to my normal junk XD

 

Ha does it? My junk is fantastic right now so I will probably make the same choice.

 

I'm torn between choosing the Huana, since I like the queen, and just going solo if that's an option. 

 

Does siding with the Huana make you lose both Pallegina and Maia?

 

Yeah. My Pallegina remains in the Republic. Don't know if she still left as a Kind Wayfarer.

Is there a ''join us'' moment when it comes to the Principi so i can say ''no''? Cause i want to drain any many quests out of these factions as possible without joining any of them.

 

EDIT: If i decide to join the Principi does nobody leave? You mention you fight some Huana leaders and others mention fighting Ruatai leaders with the Principi, so why does nobody leave during those events?

There is a "I have the Fonferrus and return to Aeldys/Furrante" moment, which is the "join us" point.

If you decide to join the Principi nobody leaves. You then sail through the storm and land on Ukuzi or what's it called and disable the Ondra's mortar/storm. This apparently makes one(! would be interesting to know whether this is random or there's a prerequisite to chose which appears) of the factions you decided against turn up in the city and fight against you. Nobody leaves then, as they start combat with you, not the other way around.

Cheers.

 

Few questions though

 

1 :If i go solo do i still have to sail to the city and 1 of the factions turns up and fights me anyway?

 

2: Whats the specific differences between going solo and joining the Prinicipi?

 

3: If i take the ghostship, but dont hand it in and dont join any other factions, and i go through the storm and land on Ukuzi, is that still considered going solo?

I can answer that one . Joining the Principal is like joining a faction . Beside loot reward and such , the ending sliders will be determined by who did you side with and the fate of your companions will change depanding on that also . 

 

I'm guessing going solo..will also give a different slider . Although , I can say that they are also bugged . So beware ( as in , give them time to fix this stuff and try again :D)

Huh that's odd. Surely she'd learned what the PC did via the other companions? Would think it'd be a forced ship conversation and she'd leave then. That said if it works it works XD

If i do the Principal questline up until i get the ghostship, but i dont hand the ghostship in and i just carry on with the rest of the game as normal, would that be considered going solo still? Or would you still be considered as being a member of the Principal?

It's solo. You don't get locked into the pirates til you return with the ship.

My guess is people who got Huana leader fight in Ukaizo gave the Ukaizo map from the quest to the prince? Because I just kept it, avoided the Rauataians and never gave it to the Huana either, effectively just failing the quest and I got the Rauatai admiral both with Principi and going solo. Oddly enough too Maia didn't comment on killing her high commander at all.
