Hello Obsidian,

 

It seems that "Faith and Conviction" doesn't scale with the main character's reputation anymore? It only scales with overall level, as it does for NPCs.

 

Please add this back in, as it was flavourful to adhere to your order's teachings and the change has made the ability less useful for paladins.

 

Not 100% sure on this, but tried to do some testing by adding/removing disposition points with the console and triggering in-game events, neither of which adjusted my character's defence bonuses from faith and conviction.

 

Similarly, adding points in opposed dispositions didn't decrease the ability's bonuses.

 

This seems consistent with the beta bug previously reported below but hasn't been fixed?

Hey Harlath,

 

This bug is still being investigated, hopefully we will have a fix in by the next patch. 

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the prompt reply Aarik! Hope today (and the coming days) aren't too stressful. Look forward to a solution.

 

Other players struggling with this - you can revert back to the 2.03 version of Faith and Conviction by using the old files, a copy of which are contained in this mod (only really helps if you've just running one paladin as the main character).

Hooray! Thanks for the update.

 

Fellow players - remember you can copy paste the old Faith and Conviction using the mod linked above (albeit this means your NPCs don't get the benefits of the new version).

I don't know for sure, but it's supposed to be done by the end of next week, and it could take another week after that to finish testing.

If I were to start a new game as a Paladin on 3.01, when 3.02 is released, would it retroactively fix this issue, or should I just wait until 3.02?

Taking a wild guess here, but if the fix was not retroactive, you would probably still get it by retraining your character. BMac will be able to confirm or deny.

What about making Deep Faith follow Obsidian talent design and make it buff Faith & Conviction by 50%?

The fix is retroactive, so you can start your new game now.
