Lets talk Morality!
I'm a beginner at this game and I only realistically only played 2 characters. First was a "trial" character for me where i saw the basic mechanics and how things work in the game.
My second one was a semi-thought-through build that I enjoy a lot at the moment...BUT the morality problem came to kick me in the rear.
On my second character, when I first generated it, it gave me the option to SKIP the tutorial. I completed all the campaign after that point. And what would you know? Skipping the tutorial means you lose around 50 morality points. If it was explained to me at the creation screen that this would be the case I wouldn't have done it. (And for anyone wondering, no, I didn't pick a wrong morality choice: all my picks were Puritan and I still only got 275/300 at the end of the campaign).
I keep asking myself why would such a big drawback be implemented in the game? If a tutorial for tech-adept (yes, yes, I know it has a different starting campaign but my argument still stands) is so important and so crucial in getting 300 morality why does the game even give you the ability to skip that part of the game?
I asked around and searched reddit for answers. All the answers were: "go do random priority missions and maybe get 15 points totally random if you are lucky". I mean, this is like starting a job, signing the contract and then, 10 days later, you get tasked to go through ten million files just to find a typo somewhere on a page. Seem like I, a new player, am punished for something that shouldn't even be available.
I also read that the Holy relics that are open through 300 points in the morality bar aren't that game breaking or anything like that OR are super hand to find with the exact combo of stats that would be beneficial for one's build. I understand this. But still, I see this as a complete and utter oversight from the developers.
Moreover, some of the comments I got when I asked about a solution was: "just start over". Is this a real and honest way of "solving" a problem that shouldn't even be in the game?
I honestly think that this should be known by more people. The few posts that discuss this (reddit or other forums) is low and most of the times the replies there end once someone tells the only solution: random priority missions farming for 2-3 months to get the points you need or start over with fresh character.
This is messed up. But this might be only my problem and how I see things.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for reading my post.
