I miss companions who keeps hoping no matter what happens, like Imoen.

Ah, thanks for that IGN article. I guess if they add more potential companions that have a positive outlook on life and boost traveling morale, like Imoen, that will be outstanding. I liked Imoen and I really liked Lohse (even if I had to kill her in the end, after which I reloaded the game and allowed he to ascend instead so I didn’t have to). I don’t mind 1 party member with emotional issues but when everyone is like that, it’s basically Lone wolf mode if at all possible.
