I"m going to continue playing the game as designed, with story. For those saying it's all the same, you do realize there are different options and some of them can be quite different depending on class.
Also, could we please kill the final boss in Taral 5? Not killing the boss is the very definition of being on a gear hampster wheel. Some of us actually are trying to play the game not run up a hampster wheel.
And yes, my gear is far beyond needing black hole comms.
I'm going to keep telling people to press space bar.
