I've only tested that the "Flesh for Sale" will activate as long as you don't do anything concerning "Following the Thread" quest.
I also tried finishing the former quest before going to the last altar and kill the people there which triggered the latter quest.
It's still a bugged quest like...
They could actually change the trigger in way that you need to talk to Crach first before going to Faroe Island or something to continue the "Following the Thread" quest.
But I'm not a game dev and I don't know what else might break if they do something like that.
Good, all this Shani, Triss, Fringilla. Essi deserved a bit more than that end.
She could have moved to Kovir or Poviss but no. All we can do is remember and give a little dedication.
Still I love Yen more.
I went true neutral and Shani in TW1. Then read the books which shaped my decisions in TW2 (was disappointed Yen was only mentioned and in flashbacks).
That's the problem of knowing the background information. I should have avoided the books.
Because they are books and not an RPG game. I agree with you but since you can't change decisions within the books the different interpretations can be limited to a certain degree and difficult to deviate from them.
I kinda wish there's really was an ending where Geralt was the one to cut ties with both of them and go with someone else.
Maybe an "Alone" ending that was in someways good. Alas I can only dream.
We digress. Post more Yen pics please.
