Deprive the unworthy = The ultimate improved SCS Beholder ray of death?

Recommended Posts

So I'm not sure if many npcs use Deprive the Unworthy, but the other day I ran across of a pack of Fampyres, Darguls and one named paladin of Berath in the Russetwood.

I put my anti charm armor on with which I have 177 defense against charm, only to get repeatedly charmed and whenever not charmed hit like crazy.

I died once or twice, before I realized I had to split that group of enemies up, died once more until I realized I had to split the Fampyres from the paladin.

When I fought the paladin and one Dargul in the end, I stil got hit like crazy and had to heal several times to not die.

I checked my defenses and they were down to 68 DEF, REF and WI and 48 FORT. :D

The only debuff on me: Deprive the unworthy.

So I checked my status effects and not only were my aura, modal and F+C supressed, but all my item buffs from the items I wore were gone.

They were not even suppressed, just gone. ^^

This surpasses BG2 SCS beholder rays by far, those took of all buffs, too, but they didn't suppress the items I wear, lol.

That's weird and I think that this is not intended. Since enemies normally don't wear items with "+x to something" you won't experience such effects when you use Deprive on them. ;)


I never noticed that because I play with a full party most of the time - but as a solo guy this can really be deadly then. :)

Deprive the Unworthy is pretty buggy, it also has no save and just 'affects' anyone you use it on like if it was a friendly effect rather than getting a hit/crit/graze/miss (http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/79617-deprive-the-unworthy-autohit/). Makes the Thaos fight kind of a joke and enemy paladins way more dangerous than they should be.


This should probly be Technical support as another bug.

It felt buggy to me too.

Well, since you don't have the same effect against enemies I guess it doesn't matter too much, but if there was PvP, this would be the first skill to need a total overhaul. :D
