Is she just running around inside your head now?! We didn't eradicate her spirit like we did to Valkorian! I don't know about you guys, but I gave her the choice to side with me, she approved and she (along with Arcann and Senya, beautiful family moment fyi) helped me wipe the floor with Valkorian. So, she's just there now? Is that what future chapters could be about? I wanted to help the lady, especially after seeing the 'Betrayal' trailer, so maybe that opportunity will arise, but I feel a lot of the player base may not like that. Thoughts?

P.s. You could have given me 3 choices with Vaylin Bioware!!!! Why you make me kill her?

[Light] Knock her out, take her to the Voss Mystics
[less light/ Neutral] Sever her connection to the force. Jedi do it, so can I.
[Dark] Shishkebob her. Which we all did.

I was expecting a reaction from Senya when I stabbed her.

I really hope we get more on this, and I also would like to try and work towards getting her mind fixed like Arcann. The chapter were we go to Nathema was just... horrifying. To think all of this was being done to some 12-15 y/o kid was gut wrenching, and it really gave me some sympathy for her. Arcann sort of got off easy, Valk just manipulated into a rage filled kid with daddy issues, but he flat out broke Vaylin. I do hope they expand on her lingering spirit and I hope we give her closure.

But in all likelihood we'll probably just switch gears towards Malgus.
Query: Is there someone that you need killed master?

I dont know about saving her..but I for one..was looking to force bind the whole family . It would've been so good for the Ghost my Sorc lost , they could replace them lol .

Edit: But it's true , that they should've given us more choices . And before anyone say they hate her and are happy to kill her , look at the big pictures . More replayabilities , more options are always a good things .

I mean , we did try to save that Master whats her name on Ziost that Valk possessed . So why not Vaylin ? even if it feel like a giant mistake.....although , I wish Senya wouldve been the one to do the saving . Instead she saved that egghead arcann .

Vaylin was too crazy to let live. She was even murdering her own people on immature whims.

I don't think there is anything the writers could do to justify her becoming an ally, unless she had been written differently much earlier. (as in not batsh-t crazy)

Vaylin refusing to surrender and embrace the light side like Arcann, also felt completely in-character. Some characters should be irredeemable.

while I agree with you on that first line..

It is still couldve been done in another way . Redeem her ? I don't think she is the kind who needed it . More like heal her , heal the damage Valk did to her , and then release her from the hatred and pain that was eating her alive . Then kill her . What would that accomplish , well for one in the ending she may come back as how Vaylin could've been if daddy didnt mess her up . That would've been worth seeing and is a good opportunity for a LS Player .

Which seems right up the Consular's power house!

O.O They could have made her a Consular exclusive companion!
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Nathema was at first creepy because of the Force being corrupted, but Vaylin's hellish time there?

I truly felt bad for her.

Vaylin had the perfect ending, she should be at rest with her brother. It makes no sense whatsoever to keep her around. I also don't think her force should be severed as she doesn't want to be controlled. And if you did, she wouldn't want to be with you as you took her power away...she isn't exactly great with physical combat.

Vaylin death was the best direction.

She was only there because Valkorian absorbed her essence, meaning that when he finally died her spirit was laid to rest along with his.
It's not that you disagree, it's how you disagree
You're a white knight if you like Bioware, you're a whiner if you hate them, you're a scummy fence sitter if you're in the middle.
