I am not only talking about dialogues and interactions where my character is not recognized as a woman. I'm talking about the whole game, where I'm considered a man.

 

Do you play the game in english or with a localization? I have heard that some of the translations have problems. I play a female character in english and havent noticed weird things, but im a man so its possible im just blind to those because of it.

 

I play in English and I notice a few times I get referenced to as a man, particularly by npc comments. My chanter gets "sing us a song, brother" when going by.

you sure that "Sing us a song, brother" is directed at you and not an NPC?

edit: the only NPC comments directly referencing me that I can recall are in the Gullet and in the Port Maje Huana-town. Neither of which is gender specific as far as I can recall. And neither is class specific either.

I can't think of any class-specific npc callouts off the top of my head.

Honestly, the only character i've found to 'misgender' someone was the Spindle Man referring to Ernezzo as a woman (and 'misspell' his name as Ernesso), but you can even point it out to him and he basically goes 'i don't care'  :w00t:

 

I want a Vithrack companion damn it, Vithracks are just so bloody cool.

I will say, I'm slightly disappointed at the lack of vithrack love in what I've seen of the game so far. Even amidst the wilder crewmembers, Big Mouth is the only one who you have to hire through the crew tab and not actually meet in the world and convince to come with you. WHERE MUH VETHRUCKS UT, OBS?! :(

 yes, I did not have Tekahu with me. I've played my priest and had no call outs but on my chanter I had several, in taverns, Queens Berth and the overlook as well as on one of the Huana isles.

I am looking forward to this.  :D  Hope she reminds me of the Annah Patty skin for Planescape: Torment.  :D  Festive sidekick with witty banter and irreverent lack of sense.

I would love a Vithrack companion in PoE3 (well, in an expansion to PoE2 would be great, but I doubt that'll happen). They're obviously an intelligent species, comparable to kith, but so alien. There's precedent for it with characters like Okku and One of Many in MotB so fingers crossed.

Well of course and it'll be bisexual, or more precisely it doesn't see gender (see Spindle Man). It'll also be the first time the romance won't be optional as the companion will read your mind and see that you are attracted to it regardless of what your character actually says. Won't this reduce player agency you ask? No, of course no, who wouldn't be attracted to a hot, sexy Vithrack?

And just like Shelob in Shadow of War it will change into a hot woman if you try to romance it, just to make things more generic.

You people and your crazy ideas.

 

A vithrack companion? How quaint. I say let's go full exotic. I say let's do something completely and mind-bustingly unexpected, like...

 

...I dunno...

 

...a FREAKING FULL-FLEDGED DWARF COMPANION.

 

(I'm not disgruntled, I just like to ctrl+B things. I love you guys.)

The world isn't ready for a Dwarf Companion. I know it's sad, but it's true.

Sexy humanoid spider romances on the other hand: Shadow of War has shown we're not only ready, we need them!

Hell, there's a reason why the Vithrack crewmate is called "BIG MOUTH"

Its a great quality in a masseuse! The beard, not so much. It tickles.
