goddamm smelly warhorse jenda, phoebe gonna sing about you in all kinddom´s taverns! not even 20 charisma clothes suavizes the smell.
the game and story are nice, but… the pace is crazy if you are a “yes man” like ppl sugest henry to be. gotta in viper´s nest with great stats, but running like crazy up and down like a chicken without a head. not funny, so i restart. did go better, but still very confusing: it seems henry is free to choose, but some choices blocks quests and dlcs. and even if strength, vitality and warfare are great to take care of road rufians, all the rest are pretty mediocre. some i dont even see the point, like “hunting”.
finally, the annoying and “forever and ever and everywhere” howling of mutt did it. i expend hours training it AND me and the damm beast still howls. i give food, i give praise, i give all comands, i study, i train and i perk up all there is to perk about the damm canine but he still howls all the time and everywhere. i understand giving it back is not good to henry´s “reputation”, so:
and that´s the reason to ressurect the topic. i did milk very little on the tutorial and want to perk up doing the side quests so later i´m strong and focused on the main, but at the same time i have no ideia if that´s possible and if doing so, some other stories would be dennied. i confess i look up on the side quests, but it seems to me not all are independent of the main quests.
so, what about side quests?
my new hal is very lame, low stats. did the thick as thiefs to get some money and buy a horse. yes, you get one from hanush after saving capon but i didn´t go to them, didn´t even talk with my lord about the sword. so, after a few days stealing and selling, i walk to neuhof and buy the cheapste horse. even with all the stealing, lockpicking+padfoot wasn´t enough to steal the saddle and stribs, so i had to buy it, too.
only then i started to roam the map, avoiding road thugs and brawls so my level 3 strength lame hal does not die all the time even dressed in full armor. it´s annoying to have a bandit dressed in shirt armed with his fists making fun of me, too.
but i know the only way to perk up is doing it (and reading, sure, but the right book is not always there) so i wanna do the maximum possible of side quests to see if it gives me slow but sure perk up.
so, finally, the question:
what side quests don´t impact the kcds and mais story line? i did a few but not sure where to go, not everybody talks to me (maybe bc i didn´t do any of the main quests) and i´m afraid of dissabling something by doing some specific side quest before it “should” be done.
