Just thought to myself something after going through the lore starting at Homestead, until I arrived at Fort Ikon, and realized something.
The Black Legion makes no sense with their stance towards The Witch.
We play as a former “Taken”, and it is well known from the start that we have to work hard to earn others’ trust because of this fact.
So why is it that our deeds, that help those around us survive, regarded with so much more credibility than the Witch’s?
The Witch’s advice led to the Legion surviving a massive ambush and avoiding another that would’ve killed them off. So how is it that her “reward” is to be persecuted by the same people she helped to save? People who align themselves with our character’s deeds, who by all accounts should pose the “greater threat” if we look at this from pure circumstance.
The icing on the cake to me is that, should you help the Witch out, you lose Black Legion faction. It’s like the Legion’s saying to us:
“Hey, former ‘Taken’, we know that you could wipe us out without breaking a sweat, but what YOU do is okay, just so long as you don’t help the Witch, who’s also helping us out, but because reasons, we think that her deeds are somehow evil, and we hate her for it, so don’t ever help HER.”
It’s ass-backwards, and silly, any way you look at it due to the duplicity of the Legion.
That’s my 10 cents. I’d hope that the dialogue from the Legion would eventually be either fleshed out, or in the least have them pick a side and stick to it instead of the double standard BS.
