Bonus evaluation[править | править исходный текст]

Lawful tendencies (it's harder to change)[править | править исходный текст]

According to testing performed by Soirana, alignment change reduction works only if the PC is already lawful. The exact reduction seems to be around 25% magnitude applied to alignment penalty for chaotic actions. This will typically not affect the game in a significant way, but may help lawful PCs avoid transforming into fallen champions.



One free skill increase per level[править | править исходный текст]

The efficiency of this bonus varies depending on the race & class combination of the PC. Low-Learning characters with several powerful skills will benefit the most, while for other characters the difference will be marginal.


Increased chance to learn spells[править | править исходный текст]

According to Soirana tests the effectiveness of this bonus is significant. Semi-spellcaster classes will experience less negative effects while learning spells.


3 to initial Learning[править | править исходный текст]

This bonus is significant, considering the difficulty of increasing this attribute in the early game for most classes. Yields from book reading improve, and the PC might get yet another skill increase per level.


Note that while this stat boost was always present, it was not documented in the game until 1.2.0 Prerelease 17.[1]


Conclusion[править | править исходный текст]

Spell-learning bonus is probably the most significant of all three, unless the player wants to level-up his/her PC's skills as soon as possible. Thus, the star sign will work better for semi-spellcaster classes (melee-oriented classes with Concentration) like Paladins, Weaponsmiths and Archers. Pure spellcasters like Wizards or Priests might find the 3 Le attractive, even if they're already good at learning spells otherwise.
