Well then. I guess you are right. Mods are the only way to salvage BG3 now.
Yeah, it's funny. In most games I am extremely against mods. I played with very few in BG1 or 2, I played 1 in Q3A, zero in Total War. However Neverwinter Nights gave me the basics of coding (like, real basics) and I used to implement prestige classes.
At this point, that's all I'm asking from Larian. Let us mod what we want both into, and out of, the game.
