Bonus evaluation[править | править исходный текст]

Harder to corrupt by Chaos effects[править | править исходный текст]

Various tests and data seem to indicate that this effect decreases corruption gained by 10% rounded down and works only if the PC is lawful. Due to the way background corruption works, rounding practically removes any potential reduction on all levels except Emperor Moloch's lair and ChAoS pLaNe. Unicorn is much more useful against one-time corruption gains, such as monsters' corrupting attacks, using chaos orbs and eating corpses of ChAoS creatures.

Unicorn bonus stacks with other corruption-reducing sources, such as extreme lawful alignment (L ), and various class powers. Test results for Chaos Orb usage show that equipping elemental gauntlets, having L alignment and being born under Unicorn star sign give the cumulative corruption reduction of approximately 70%.

Hard to change to a different alignment once lawful[править | править исходный текст]

All negative alignment changes for lawful PCs are reduced (some data indicate a 10% reduction). Due to a bug Unicorn star sign actually increased negative changes (by 10%) in versions prior to 1.2.0.

2 to initial Appearance[править | править исходный текст]

Appearance slightly reduces shop prices for female characters as well as has an impact on Smithing skill price when learning from Glod. Apart from these rather insignificant effects Appearance has zero to none influence on the game, therefore making this particular bonus unimportant.

Conclusion[править | править исходный текст]

This star sign seems to be designed for characters aspiring to be lawful champions and possibly those attempting an ultra ending. It should be noted, however, that corruption-reducing effects of lawful alignment are more than enough to complete an ultra ending (and, obviously a normal ending), eliminating the overall advantage of all star sign bonuses. Therefore Unicorn is (rather counter-intuitively) slightly more suited for chaotic players which have significantly more problems with corruption.
