This is a big one. Patch 1.05 features hundreds of bug fixes, balance changes, and new UI features. There are many minor fixes that are not listed in these notes.

 

Please Note: Save games in 1.05 are not compatible with 1.04 or earlier versions. The game will automatically back up your save games in a special folder in the save game directory after converting the saves to the new format.

 

 

New Features

  • You can now change the portrait and sound set of characters from the character sheet. Click on the gear icon to open the customization window. You can only use this feature on player characters and hired (non-companion) characters.

  • You can now bind extra mouse buttons to Ability hotkeys.

Was the bug that causes members with items or talents that increase spell count to have a permanent increase in spell count when going from area to area fixed in 1.05? I sort of posted this in an old thread but I am not sure if it's been addressed in the beta as one of those hidden fixes.

 

http://forums.obsidi...t-level-spells/

 

For me it's being caused by

 

1. Not having the members in my active party

2. They were equipped with either the rings that give a spell cast bonus OR the talent that gives you an extra spell cast

3. Within my stronghold, (from the room where you rest on your bed for rest bonuses) every time that I descend the stairs I find that the spell cast count in the tier boosted by the talent or item increases pernamently. So if Hiravias can cast say 40 tier 1 spells and is not in my party, descending those stairs would increase it to 41 since he has that bonus tier 1 spell cast talent mentioned.

 

Interestingly enough I went to the Gilded veil inn, entered and exited through the front door, returned them to my party and noticed the spell count went up for one for Aloth who only has the bonus forth tier spell talent but not Hiravias who has the bonus first tier spell talent.  Went to the dyrford village inn and did the same but nothing happened. Not sure what's causing this but it's definitely involved with entering and exiting/moving from certain areas. Here's my save and log. Also if the party member is on some minor/average/major adventure and is busy, the glitch doesn't seem to affect them for the time being.

I suppose it's more beneficial than not but it feels kind of cheap to be walking around with 20-40 spell casts in the categories that have that skill since I switch my party members around often.

 

No, this has not been addressed.

 

Here are some more instances of the problem:

Wow, this one is rather dire. I thought this was fixed and was getting ready to resume my playthrough.

 

Are there any workaround ? Removing +x spells items before switching off party members doesn't seem to be enough since the bug also triggers with the "Bonus 1st level spell" talents.

Can someone confirm whether the bug with Deprive the Unworthy removing passive talents was fixed or not? I know it hasn't been mentioned in the patch notes, but I was wondering if it was fixed stealthily.

  • Battle-forged status effect now ends when combat ends. This should prevent it from stacking because of save/load.
  • Fix for Elusive Quarry so its status effects now end when combat ends. This should prevent it from stacking because of save/load.

 

While this is great news for another playthrough or new players it does not seem to remove the current stacks of Battle-Forged.

 

Unfortunately that means it is still impossible to fix currently broken characters. And especially if you enjoy the callenging encounters, it basically makes the character unplayable since it trivialises almost all of the combat.

 

It's not really possible to go back to the last unbroken safegame, since it probably takes a while until you notice something is wrong.  When you notice your getting tankier, checking your passive for whether you racial bugged out is not generally the first thought.

 

So it would be awesome if there was a way to fix this retroactively.

The dev team is working on it, but the retro-active fix is looking to be a much more complicated issue than it was to fix it from happening in the first place. We're sorry for the inconvenience, and we'll let you know when we make progress on fixing it.

"Draining Whip is now working as intended." I thought it did work as intended before. Can someone tell me what the problem was?

Is it safe to play with the beta now ? Seems like it's actually ready for release but you guys are holding it some more for reasons that likely don't apply to me.

 

My free time of this week vanishes in 4 hours and I don't know when I'll find a new opportunity to play properly (i.e. in 2 hours sessions), so if beta is safe now I should take it :)

 

 

@peddroelm: Petrified damage dropped from x4 to x2.

QA said that this should be fixed for 1.05. Not sure if the fix is retroactive, though.

Im getting a data folder not found error with the restructure.

 

There should be 'PillarsOfEternity_Data'
folder next to the executable
 
I reckon its just a matter of moving the right folders to the right places?

Went to continue my playthrough and I can definitely say ouch for my cipher. Was near done with the game too. But wow thirty focus is bad ouch. Very bad ouch. (no greater focus taken) Played with it for a little bit, but can feel the sting on that nerf. Able to pull off one spell of fourth and fifth, one third level (then another after a couple attacks) and that's about it. Relegating use to only second and first level spells. (for me anyhow) My character does not feel so fun now.

The ability to level the story party members is amazing! Unfortunately, I'm half way through the game and already got everyone. Any chance you could make a way to respec the picked up party members? Maybe make it a feature for the Training Grounds. I only need to do it once!

Thanks for the great patch and all the hard work!

 

It looks like I've found a (new?) bug:

wielding a 1H weapon in the off-hand now gives both main-hand fist and the off-hand weapon full accuracy.  Eep!

 

Experiencing this on characters from a new game started ~5? revisions ago in 1.05b.  I'm assuming it's a problem in the full release but I guess it could be an artifact from the beta versions.

 

Thanks again!  Keep on rockin, you beautiful sassy unicorns.

  • Sanguine Plate's Retaliate mod has been replaced with Spell Holding: Frenzy.

At least in my current game, Sanguine Plate now has both Retaliation and Spell Holding: Frenzy, both in the tool tip and as tested in combat.

I was hoping to see monk unarmed accuracy increased, or at least not decreased 'cos of dual wielding. since playing an unarmed monk is by default dual wielding your fists, you do not get to choose, and i do not understand why it is treated the same as a barbarian wielding an axe in one hand and a sabre in another. i mean its your natural limbs after all and you are a monk trained with them all your life and you cant even enchant them in terms of damage or accuracy. it does not even feel right in terms of flavor to get peasant weapon focus for a monk to learn how to swing his/her fists accurately. also when using torments reach(or similar abilities) accuracy is calculated with the same dual wielding setting, but by default and animation torments reach is a kicking attack done with only one leg. the last thing i would like to add is an attack per round or attack speed info would be nice in character sheet, we can see the damage there but it is not viable since we do not know how frequently the character attacks. i mean there is the speed info on weapon to give an idea but with all the other modifiers coming from two weapon style, swift strike and buffs etc. it is hard to perceive your characters attack speed, we cant even understand if there is a bug preventing these effects from stacking or if there is a cap for attack speed. I know this is a unique setting, not a D&D copycat, which is why i am too bold in my suggestions. thank you in advance for reading and for your comments fellow gamers and developers (i am also in software development business) and pardon my language if i have any mistakes since i am not a native speaker.

Holy hell guys, this is a GREAT update! Thanks a lot for it, really good job here, as always!

My personal favorites are New Stash Sorting Options, Trap Detection Without Stealth and of course Companion "Respec".

One flaw seems to stay: german localization. Haven't checked it for a little while, but when I last played it, there still were some weapon types named after stat bonuses (bows named "intellect +2" etc, both in inventory and some skill descriptions). Please fix this as soon as you can, it's the (only) one thing that really bothers me.

Congratulations on the Patch 1.05 Release. The main menu now keeps you informed on patches? That means a 1.06 Patch is mandatory, right? ^^
 

I think i will still delay a bit more so i can enjoy a bug-free Adventure :)
