Isn't Minor Blights considered to be a wand? I only tested it "on the fly" with the rod's and the scepter's proficiency activated and they get turned off once you summon Minor Blights.

 

So Kalakoth's Minor Blights is categorized as a universal weapon and it does appear to count as proficient for devoted.

The blights are a ranged weapon, so it makes sense for a Devoted to be unable to specialize in them. Try a Berserker/Wizard if you want the blights with extra penetration ;)

But you do get the penetration bonus with blights, also with other ranged weapons so long as you're proficient in them. Nowhere does it say devoted have to use melee weapons. Personally, I've been messing around with a devoted/priest of magran with pistol proficiency for the conjured pistol and it's pretty fun.

You do get them, but last I checked the subclass’ description specifically stated they’re supposed to pick one melee proficiency ;)

Interesting. They must have changed this in the beta update.

Quick question as I don't have time to check now—if you play a Monk/Wizard and summon the blights, do they count as being dual-wielded with the fist?

 

If not, I'd bring this to QA's attention. While it does make sense that any other character's fist wouldn't count as a weapon, a Monk's always should because of Transcendent Suffering.

That’s actually a fair point.

As far as I can tell there is no mention of melee weapons at all in the class description.

 

 

I was fooling with a devoted but was not restricted to a single proficiency - did I miss something about how you choose your "devoted" weapon choice?

You didn’t; it’s been bugged since the first beta build.
