I see duplicate companion icon/picture with name in clan menu.
Yeah just spent and hour trying to make a cool looking Battianan character, loaded up the menu to see if there were any good Battianan companions to recuit and there was only 1!!! Some ***** with wronged at the end of her name, while other cultures have 5 +. Just wasted my time, making a character and turned off the game. Can you guys please have a minimum of 5 companions for each culture to choose from at the start of a campaign?
The current system is so random and it is a dice roll if you are going to have any decent companions for the same culture as your character.
In my current playthrough I could hire two identical named Companions, just slightly different faces.Decided to roll another character this morning and this time I got 2 companions of the same culture while there were 7 Vlandian companions!
This would be awesome if I had rolled a Vlandian character ... you guys got to fix this at some point
There is one available in my current playthrough, looking very much like me Imperial character. He is also named Gerotheon, which only differs from my characters name, because I changed the second 'e' to a 'y' in character creation.Yep, that happens. I used a generated name and there was a companion with my name.
To be honest I do not care much for their culture. But skillwise I struggle. I have an Aserai char and naturally i'm interested in caravans. Yet I have lots of barrelchests, scholars and blacks available, but not a single companion with the trade skill. I started the game 535 days ago. Forced to choose, I chose my scout to do the caravan thing and he now has a trade skill of 71 -.-.I just wish they would guarantee at least 5 companions for each culture minimum + a chance to have a few more for each culture at the start. Most would have 5 but some might have 6 or 7 basically. When I play a campaign I try to keep my culture, troops, and companions all the same.
