I long rest whenever I think there might be a new companion scene... so I'd say I rest more than I need to recover all my resources.
The same goes for me. I don't want to miss a companion scene, so I take long rests in very
short intervals. It feels very strange, because the day should not even be over by then.
That the companion scenes, that are so well animated, voice-acted and written, are so easy to miss when you take long rests in appropriate time intervals is the one
thing that really bothers me.
I like the companions we have met so far, I like the character writing. In my opinion, they are all very interesting and complex/nuanced characters, and I am very interested in learning more about them, about their backstories and personalities (it also would not surprise me if their backstories are even, in one way or another, connected to the main story arc).
Therefore, I would very much like to have more opportunities to talk to them.
If they fix the camp scenes so that you can trigger more than 1 per night, I'd rest less.
I would like that very much. I would not mind at all to talk to each of the companions who are present in our camp during one long rest, it also feels more natural/realistic. Why should I only talk to one person during the evening, before going to sleep (or meditate)? It is not implied that we talk with one of our companions while keeping watch.
I like very much how dialogues are implemented in the first night in camp, with Astarion and Shadowheart in the party. First, Astarion wants to talk to you - and then Shadowheart wants to know what you were talking about. It felt very natural, more like a group. It's similar for the scene with Raphael.
Many times, the dialogue option is also linked to the companion with the currently highest approval (even when other companions are in the same approval range), which seems a bit odd to me. I would very much like to have the opportunity to talk to the other companions as well.
It is also a bit strange to me that it seems to be implied that our Tav would romance the companion with the highest approval - holding the same views would not necessarily mean that there is also a romantic attraction. It was very funny when my sorcerer Tav, who is in a bit of a rivalry with Gale, exclaims "First in my heart", when I wanted to start a dialogue with him.
Honestly, I'll often rest, leave camp, then rest again to make sure I don't miss anything.
So I'm not the only one
