The first DQ choice seems to be kinda biased in my case lately.
It seems to have a crush on the Water Splinter for a week or so. :)
Not that I complain... much, because I like the Water Splinter. It's true, once it was the second choice, but I ran away from the Death Splinter, which was first.
And I don't like using the "New Quest" option for exactly this reason: to avoid the Death Splinter, because it usually takes much longer to complete DQ's with it.
Hopefully there will be some more diversity in the future, or I'll start to avoid Water as well...
