New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I recently finished a playthrough where I hit chapter 7 and just said "screw it, I'm not going to retrieve Shandalar's cloak.". After dozens of playthroughs, the thought of having to face the same set of teleporting, confusion-casting mages in a trapped maze just sounded like the opposite of fun. Ditto for Ramazith's tower, stat boost be damned; it's easy loot, but it's tedious and I couldn't be bothered.
While I'm normally a completionist in most games that I play, a reduction in free time and SoD's bumping you WAY over the original level cap mean I feel liberated to just outright skip major dungeons and quests at this point. The ice island is my big example; I'm curious, who else finds themselves skipping significant content, even at the expense of loot and xp, and why?
