I am right now doing the Yrzu questline as a freeport based bruiser and what I dislike is that I am too nice.

My toon is a bruiser, evil ... but I warn people, I don't want to kill them, I don't want to fight.

I doesn't feel right. when you fight Annuk'ka or taliseda, I would like to .. as my character .. be able to silence them.

It's a bit of role play, the ending would be the same, but just it would feel more how it should. Ogres, trolls, Dark elves .. all should be willing to destroy or kill ... And I miss this feeling. I know it won't be done now, but just a thought

It doesn't bother me. I figure that at this point in our character's lives they've seen so much that they, by necessity, grow beyond the concepts of good and evil and become increasingly more pragmatic in their view of the "big picture."

Although, they are so patronising that it would be nice to be able to wreak havoc on them. Like going guard killing in Qeynos.

Last expac everybody had to 'be evil' and help out Rile and company.
Shmogre does have a point though... if you read the conversations.. many of the Vahla are jerks and believe that deceit and sabotage are all in a days work Wink

swashies are "good" class but they do the same things as vahla, they deceive and trick people, con people out of money rather then use brute force.

illusionists are "good" class but they use illusions to deceive their enemies both in combat and to assist others in spying on people.

i've done all three questlines and i think you can't really call any of them good or evil, they do good and bad things, makes them feel three dimensional. remember also the vahla and yrzu are in a stouch over which magic is better so of course they are going to take it to the extreme to one up each other.

P.S
if you want to feel evil go down to the plains and find a ceffyl with 3 foals, murder the mommy then the foals, you gain -30 to good/evil alignment scale.

you can deceive to steal or to play tricks

but you can control and kill ... deceive would be more neutral or chaotic (in D&D words) but not necessarily evil.
Though in fights evil characters would just kill without thinking or deceit for their own gain by inflicting pain or submit people.

also those 3 factions hate each other. We all know too well .. when you are biased and think you are the best, you can do bad thing in name of good. Though we just arrive and we may help them .. but would be in our ways with our reasons.

that I could understand an evil help a neutral faction for his own purpose. Get stronger ... it's just sometimes talks. As an evil character, if I need to fight people .. I don't try to reason them first. I don't care. I'll punch them and if they don't surrender I would kill them. Good characters might try to reason them and spare them/ let them leave if they are no threat anymore.
