Defender 2.0 beta nerf in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted August 27, 2015 Confirming that my 2.0 game includes Defender at -5 deflection, Wary Defender at +5 for all defenses except deflection. Sounds like a bug in your copy. Yeah when I restarted it it is not giving him the bonus anymore. Must be a bug. Sucks, Eder is my fav companion so far but I doubt I'll be using him much anymore because of this. Maybe deflection bonuses were a little overdone before but this seems like overkill in the other direction and makes the fighter class pretty useless.
