Priest dispositions on hirelings, does it matter?


Recommended Posts

Hireling Priest's Holy Radiance base damage is affected only by his character level. Specifically:

 

lvl 1: 30

lvl 2: 30

lvl 3: 30

lvl 4: 40

lvl 7: 50

lvl 10: 60

lvl 13: 70

lvl 16: 80

I didn't even know it scaled with level...

 

Basically an endgame priest NPC has the same holy radiance as a 5 points favorable disposition, isn't it ?

Yeap, it scales. As for base damage:

 

Level 16 hireling: 80

Level 16 MC: 80 + bonus_per_disposition * (favorable_dispositions - negative_dispositions)

 

Iirc bonus_per_disposition = 16

Also - slightly offtopic, but how does an NPC paladin's faith and conviction scaling stack up vs a PC's?

odd

npc hireling has same base faith and convictions as a main character paladin: +4 deflection/+8 all other defenses.  however, hirelings have faith and convictions modified by level as 'posed to disposition: +1/+2 every 5 levels. thus at level 15 an npc hireling will reach +7/+14 for faith and convictions.

 

faith and convictions for a main character paladin, as you can see from the linked thread, is suffering rather peculiar math.  for purposes o' faith and convictions and priestly holy radiance, dispositions max at 3 even though your character record sheet allows you to reach 4 in a disposition.  as such, with 2 relevant paladin dispositions, there is six total opportunities to modify the base +4/+8 faith and convictions bonus to defenses. +.8/+1.6.  a main character paladin will therefore be able to achieve +8/+17.  as such there is not a large gulf 'tween main paladin faith and convictions bonuses and hierling, although a main character will likely max out dispositions far earlier than level 15, which is when a hireling finally achieves their ultimate faith and convictions upgrade.

 

HA! Good Fun!
