Oh too bad about the dlc...my dream about
will not happen:)
About what I didn't like:
The forced reqruitments - or at least I didn't find any way out of them. Mind you I have only finished the game 2 times so there might be some way, but as far as I am aware the game stops until you have talked to
...but thinking about it maybe I can just get the quests and never finish them....have to try. Ok disregard that:)
...do the hearts influence whether your companions abondon you if you make a certain choice? If no - why not?:D And if yes - shouldn't they also represent your own...hmm....''feelings'' toward the particular companion? Example is again Jasper...the first time I did the quest (and unfortunately and unexpectadly got him which was a minor WTF moment, because I was so late in the game) and when the time came and he was all butthurt (understandable)....I was too. WHich is ''why?!'':) I haven't talked with him or anything, so I was expecting ''ok that's fine. Now fuck off before I kill you'' or similar reaction from my character:)
The final (at least what I can think of now) is when you have the chance to not be an emissary of the humans - first time I was honestly expeting for
or maybe the elves and the rest of the game to be more or less the same.
The second time...I just think that a person who is battling(and winning) vs what he/she is fighting died wayyy too easy:)
Edit: ah I forgot a point: you obviously wanted us to be a leader and not the strongest fighter (so the lack of skills), but I think this would have been the perfect opportunity for us to search/find teachers (maybe our companions...Salryssa please teach me to dual wield better:) ) or other means...but I guess you wanted items to play a major role here?
...oh btw love the breakable armor mechanic!
