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)



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.

If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

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).

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.
