If you think there is a chance you will venture into a cleared Bastion of the Penitent instance to explore for story/lore bits, and heavily dislike spoilers, then don’t scroll down to look at the picture at the end of this post.
For everybody else, I am only posting this because trying to discuss possible story/lore revelations with my raid group only reminds me how putting lore/story into a raid instance is pretty much the worse way to present it.
(The entire running group conversation was about “what do I click now” “how do I get the achievement” “what, I have to read all this” “I am lost” “I don’t know what’s going on” “this is harder than the raid boss” “why does this work for you and not for me?” “what did I miss that triggered this thing?” “oh, you mean I have to actually click on the response to trigger something and not just run away after pressing F?” and generally an entirely meta discussion about objects and the scripts on them that trigger progress on an achievement step.)
The only reason I had a clue about the intended narrative was because I did some solo exploration by myself in between scheduled raid times.
As usual, I am going to have to venture back into it solo in order to appreciate the bit that was revealed after the end, although random clicking on everything under the sun somehow triggered achievement completion for me (so I am not going to be able to figure out what the intended order is) while random clicking for other people did not (evidently they missed something when there were not being as compulsive a solo explorer as I was.)
Ok, grumble over. Don’t look past the break if you dislike any kind of spoiler (cryptic though it might be.)
Does anybody else think the red symbol looks like a ley line anomaly with extra tentacles?
