I got mine from GoG, but that's because I didn't have a choice lol. Purchased from Green Man and the key was for GoG. First I'd ever heard of them, but so far, very non-intrusive and everything works fine. Don't recall having to install any extra software either really.
My journey is still coming along swimmingly... though my wandering does get me into a fair bit of trouble. Trouble in the form of a giant spider in a deep cave. Going on my own merry way, checking out ? points and I find a cave. Turns out this is for a quest I wasn't tracking about some lost brother. I head into the cave, which actually houses a mine. Neat!
Very dark though... and I hadn't bothered to make Cat yet. Deeper I go, swimming along in parts... spider eggs.
I don't like where this is going. Ok, burn the eggs, phew, done. Deeper, and deeper... yay!
Found the brother... kinda. So I takes a look around, I've got company. Ack, a gaggle of spiders, and something BIG in the corner...
Apparently Mama doesn't like me burning her babies... ok, I can handle this... duck and weave, strike!... duck and weave, strike!... all I've inflicted on her is an irritation in her backside. So, since I'm not deserving of her time she just spits on me... and it BURNS... gulp down some Golden Oriole and RUN!
I scramble my sorry butt back outside, leaving Mama Spider to her sorrows. I'll have to visit her when i'm all grown up... so lets check out when I should have visited her. Pop a squat on a stump and open up my journal here... ok... and there... oh, that explains it. So, apparently I'm supposed to be level 33 before attempting this. Yeah, I'm level 9...
Bonus points for surviving! I'd like to say lesson learned, but the only lesson I learned is that spiders are scary
