Firebrand isn’t a Great Sword?

Running a Warden (Druid-Lifegiver/Fighter-Devoted) in my party.

I specialize in Great Sword (Devoted)
I cast Firebrand.
I have -10 Accuracy (Devoted penalty)
WTH?

So what is Firebrand? Description is “a powerful sword of pure fire” that requires two hands to use. Sounds like a great sword...

Is it a mace? A spear? A duck?

Someone please explain what I missing. Thank you!

Odd. According to the game files, Firebrand has the proper item proficiency set. Not sure why it wouldn't be registering as a greatsword.

 

Anyway, the point is that it's a bug. Report it.

It is indeed a Great Sword, also says so when you summon it and look at it's description. So should work fine with Devoted, and also with the modal. I just did a quick check and made myself a druid / devoted hireling with Great Sword proficiency, which got correct accuracy and use of modal for both spell and scroll Firebrand. And in the past I've had a main character with Great Sword proficiency who occasionally used scroll Firebrand; not devoted, but definitely used modal for that too.

 

So if it's a bug, it's not an entirely general one. Might be an issue specifically with your game files perhaps, I'd try verifying the game files for a start (if you're using Steam, that is).

Integrity check on Steam is fine... /sigh

Reporting a bug... why does his feel like work?

Only thing I can think of is that the Fire ring (+10 ACC for Fire attacks) is messing with logic.

Just tested a Paladin/Animist with the great sword proficiency - and when using Firebrand I can trigger the Savage Attack just fine.

Also the Ring gives me +10 ACC which stacks with FoD's +10 ACC bonus.
