The funny thing is I was playing on my Consular and it was exactly the same. Jesus christ is it dull!
I've chosen to play my consular alt dark, hopefully it will spice it up a little. Even if it borks the romance with my nice guy companion. I just can't get through it otherwise, I fall asleep every so often..
My favorite classes, gameplay-wise are the sorcerer and the sage. But the inq companions bore me and the consular story bores me. I hope no offense is taken by Bioware, there are stories and companions and class mechanics that I really do love, I just wish I could squish them all together, haha.
