Issue with Focus Generation Beguiler + Ascendant

i would like to report an issue with the focus generation for the beguiler and ascendant subclass. The ratio between damage and generated focus does not match with the anticipated numbers. Here are my results testing the subclasses:


no subclass cipher (draining whip): 1 damage point : 1 focus point

Soulblade (draining whip): 1  : 1 

Ascendant (draining whip): 1  : 1.25

Beguiler (draining whip + non-afflicted target): 1 : 0.5

Beguiler (draining whip + afflicted target): 1 : 0.75


As you can see the beguiler subclass is in comparison to no-subclass cipher and soulblade at a notable disadvantage. The ascendant subclass also gets less focus points than the 150% in the description would suggest.


I hope this will be addressed in the future, because i really would like to play a beguiler at full power.

Hello Krustenbraten,


Thank you for letting me know about this discrepancy with the Cipher subclasses!  I've gone ahead and created a bug report with the information you provided and sent it to the Systems Design team for investigation and a fix.  If you discover anything else about this, please continue to post your findings here as I will be linking this thread to the bug report to be used as a reference.


Thank you for all the help looking into this issue, and sorry for the inconvenience it has caused.
