    That's par for course with any big RPG.

    There are three endings, but only one is "harder" to get:

    Show Spoiler

    • Nuke Abydon's memories
    • Restore his memories
    • Temper his memories (hard), probably 'best', it can't be chosen as an import state in PoE2, has to be from a save
    The variables for the arguments are quite many, it's all up on the wiki.


    Cool part is that how much of a cyborg Abydon is in PoE2 depends on this.

    I actually got to the pit and that's when it asked me whether I want to scale up or not. Apparently the last dungeon is a 4th act all on its own. Hopefully Thaos won't be a complete bitch for my Level 16 party then.

    Thaos is pretty tough if you let him cast his buffs because he's a high level Priest. He had ridiculous stats and was hard to hit.

    RPGs like Pillars of Eternity are a super massive drain on the attention span, which is almost the exact opposite of why people play video games.

    Given modern culture is always draining your attention span and nurtures almost no meditative impulses, it's not surprising most people find them mentally exhausting to play.

    Even more unsurprising, the more an RPG indulges the absence of an attention span (ala Skyrim, or Witcher 3) the greater its mass appeal.

    It's why the isometric, exploration-driven RPG genre died out in the early 2000s.

    Am I correct in assuming that the "Sorry, there are no assurances" in the Iovara conversation line gives my character major Cruel reputation?

    I managed to finish the game. Thaos was a challenge, he actually managed to fuck me up once, but the second time I managed to kill him with little resistance. You really have to make disabling and killing him the priority, he has some really nasty abilities that he only starts using after some time in the fight.

    Does the game create some endgame save that I could import into Pillars of Eternity 2? Also when it comes to importing is there any fuckery that I should know about? For example, I played the first one through Steam, but right now it's on sale on GOG. That wouldn't cause any issues importing, would it?

    All versions of PoE use the same save folder so you're good.

    Weird, when I choose the save to be imported it says "Lighthouse" and shows only 5 party members instead of 6. The fuck is going on?

    I feel like you had to search for the right save. Maybe based on the date of the save game? The one at the top of the list to import is not the right one.

    There's only one save available, which is the gamecomplete.savegame. But it doesn't matter since I checked out a few videos and it appears that it's the same for everyone. The game shows only five party members and every save is called "Lighthouse". Strangely enough barely anyone seems to be commenting on this.

    I like Lego. I haven't played with some since I was a kid, a tragedy. I wouldn't make anything PoE-ish with it though.

    Neither would I, but you gotta admit the giant miniature space piglet is a nice touch.

    So I'm replaying PoE because I hate myself, and this part of the journal is kind of annoying me:

    [​IMG]

    They put The White March right in the middle when I'm hours away from getting to it, which is triggering my OCD. Would've been better to put it in the bottom, or better yet hide it until you start the DLC.

    The siloing of quests really annoys me. You should just have a list of quests, maybe a section for main quests and one for non-main quests. That's it! No more subsections needed!

    The organization helps people determine what's essential, what's non-trivial, and what things you do because they're there.
