Re: Divinity Original Sin 2

I really enjoyed the first one, and had no idea a sequel was released. In fact, I actually finished the game a couple times.

Wouldn't the dragon proceed to snap his big bitch neck around to snatch Jaime and Bronn out of the water like a boss? Not like he is a Ring Wraith and can't get down with the H2O.
