Can I get the secret ending if I am not good and go for the barbarians instead of tristan after beating Vordekai?
In my first playthrough (without guide) I almost made it, I just failed to get the right dialogue after beating 3 bosses. I went after Tristan after beating Vordekai.
If I convince Tristan to destroy the eye of abadon when fighting Vordekai I get the briar from Ivoretti.
But I meet Nyrissa when I go after Tristan first and later there is an conversation where you need to be good to improve your reputation with Nyrissa.
At the moment my char is chaotic neutral and I wanted to see what happens if I go after the barbarians first. Last time I went after Tristan first and I was good. The Tristan part was not planned, I just went after the quest location that was closer to my current position.
At the moment I am in the womb of Lamashtu, so my next importent choice comes at Vordekai and I have some time to change my alignment.
I have only investigated one curse so far, but getting all advisors comes first. I should still have enough time to investigate the curses when I have both divine and arcane advisors and there is no problem that can only be solved by them.
Edit: I decided that I will try to become good.
I always ended up lawful good so far, so its a miracle that I managed to remain chaotic neutral until chapter 3. In my current run I try to get the best outcome everywhere so I chose neutral because of kobolds vs mites, but I forgot Nyrissas dialogue choice when selecting my alignment.
