As long as 4 man party is there I will never play as an origin char or even them as companion because they suck. A vampire who tried to kill me. A wizard that eat all my magical stuff. A toad that tell me what to do and act high and mighty. A cleric make me suspicious of her intentions. A warlock that yell " blade of frontier " every god damn time he speak. May be with more companion revealed I can change my mind but now, 4 man custom character ftw (4 man customize is the pain in the ass but worth)
Seriously, they should let people just create their own 4 custom characters from the get go and ignore the origin character (or murder them). I mean I know there is a way to do it with Multiplayer and opening 4 copies of the game but it is a HUGE pain to do that when they could just allow it.
