I was exploring the new map yesterday and having a really good time on a very active event loop and meta. Learning what the events were and what order people took these events in. When the post-meta(after the tank fight near Wolf Crossing) happened I noticed we were fighting some sort of gatekeepers for caches of loot. Then, out of the corner of my eye I catch a glimpse of a name and face I recognised. I have not done the best job at keeping up with the story, but for some unexplainable reason (there may be no reason as far as I know) one of my very warband members was now an enemy, and a member of the dominion guarding said loot caches.
I know it's silly to get attached to characters in stories, but when one of them has a story in which you have helped them back on their feet and gave them a place. Suddenly being forced to be enemies and kill them for no reason or rhyme was just flabergasting. I have always felt the names of bosses and champions (that were named of course) were just random npcs designed for their very specific purpose. So I really want to know why Luccia? why the one you recruit from the brink of being forgotten and left as a scrapper? She was an inventor with a backstory interesting enough to be revisited at a later point. That never happened. Now she is just a mindless champ to be fought over and over in every cycle of the new meta.
I just wanted to vent my frustration without spamming mapchat or anything of the sort. Just want to say I really hate that meta now. You can keep the loot.
