Weapon Focus does not work, and Shields decrease Accuarcy to much?


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

my protagonist is using a shield and a one handed weapon (primarily swords) for combat, so choosing the Knight Weapon Focus seemed like a logical choice. It is suppose to give me +6 Accuarcy whenever I use a Sword, but whether I equip a Sword or a Flail doesnt seem to make a difference when looking at my stats, it always stays the same. Also, without my Shield I have 54 Accuarcy, but when I equip my Shield it gets reduced to 38, even though my Shield only gives a -4 Penality. Am I doing something wrong?

There is an accuracy bonus for wielding a one handed weapon and nothing else in your off-hand.

 

Equipping the shield is causing you to lose that bonus.

Ah, I see. That explains the huge decrease with a Shield. But what about the Weapon Focus? Should I not have a higher accuracy with a sword than with a flail or a mace, since the Knight Focus only boosts the accuracy when I use Swords, Morning Stars or Crossbows? I dont see any difference when equipping a greatsword or a morning star either. Or is the +6 Accuracy simply not shown?

What game version are you running?

Single Weapon Style works fine with a shield other than with a Bash shield or if you are using a fist. It has always been that way. A weapon in one hand and a shield or nothing both satisfy the requirement of using only a single weapon.

 

Uh. If that's true then that sounds like it might be a bug? Or maybe not? Better ask one of the developers.

Hello Aradin,

 

There was a bug in 2.01 where the accuracy was not updating correctly in the character sheet, but it works correctly in the combat log. We are currently in 2.02 now and 2.03 is now in beta. Updating to 2.02 will fix this issue.

 

Thank you for your support.

Also you are comparing a "fine" mace and an unenchanted sword.  Fine gives + 4 accuracy.  Still I would expect a 2 point difference between those two items.  So maybe accuracy not updating correctly in previous versions could be the issue.  But once you update, keep an eye out for that.
