During conversations, you will often have to make decisions. Besides usual dialog lines, Elex also offers a few other choices:
- Using charisma – you can come across many situations in which you can convince someone to make a certain action but you will need a special ability to do that. Charisma is increased by Personality Skills ability but you should also know that you don't need your Personality tree to be well-developed. Sometimes, you may need, e.g. Crafting tree. It all depends on a situation and a conversation.
- Intimidating – some dialogs allow you to use intimidation. You don't need any special abilities but you should remember that you can fail and when this happens, the person that you spoke with will attack you.
- Bribing – you can also bribe a person with which you are speaking. Like with intimidation, you don't need any special abilities.
During a conversation, the other person pays attention to what you are saying and, depending on your choices, can change their opinion about you. A badly selected dialog line can offend them which means that this choice can result in an unwanted end of a dialog or even provoke a fight.
You should know that your companion also has an impact on a dialog. They can often partake in conversations and, depending on their background, they can block some dialog lines. It works in both ways – your companion hears what you are talking so speaking against their faction will not be tolerated by them.
