Trouble with domination

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


 


First time poster on a new account, but have been a lurker for builds and what not. Just started playing Pillars of Eternity again after a long hiatus, and I'm having trouble with domination on targets. It appears to land on targets, but doesn't stick at all. Below is a video of what I'm referring to, but I do not know what, if anything, I'm doing wrong. 


 


Any help would be appreciated.

That's a bug. Looks like it was introduced in 3.03 or earlier. For some reason ogre thinks he has no target and this ends the domination effect.

Check for more info here.

 

P.S. Now that you have mentioned it, I've reminded I had a similar problem with Alpine Dragon's Greater Ice Blights (v3.05). Charm effect was applied but didn't last for full duration. Ended up using scrolls of confusion instead. And funnily there is a hardcoded check for that (!aIController.IsConfused)...

This is not exactly the same but i've seen dominated or charmed enemies walk back to their starting position at the moment they get charmed or dominated. They ignore targets that are near them to do this. And when they return to their starting position they turn hostile again. It seems to happen if i charm or dominate a back line enemy but its really annoying. I have never loved charmed effects their awesome but...  they were always aggravating because when a charmed enemy is left standing alone they quickly loose the charmed affect which is dumb because other effects linger on yourself even after the fight is over.

Oh my god I'm having the exact same problem! I'm landing hit and crit domination with Grieving Mother and the effect lasts a fraction of a second. It is beyond frustrating right now.

I tested this a bit and it seems your party's visual range is a factor (if your dominated target can't see hostiles within YOUR visual range/outside fog of war, the effect ends).

I actually thought that was the case, but then I thought "That's crazy... why would it work that way."

 

I typically uber-buff my barbarian and send him off to increase my range, so I guess I'll do that before casting Domination on certain targets.
