Confused about HP bonus/level with Con
I'm confused about something.
Seems to suggest that using Buckley's Buckler on level-up for the purposes of raising constitution for the HP/Level Bonus won't give improved hit points. However, this page:http://playithardcore.com/pihwiki/index.php?title=Baldur's_Gate:_Races_and_Stats#Constitution
States that using Buckley's Buckler on say, Ajantis (who has a con of 16) would make his con 17, and therefore give him a +3 bonus to HP on level-up. The same would apply to Kivan, going from 14 -> 15 (getting +1 instead of no bonus) and Branwen, going from 15 -> 16 (getting +2 instead of +1). It would also serve that using a potion of fortitude on level-up carries astronomical bonuses, when coupled with Buckley's Buckler for fighters.
Unless my understanding of the bonuses provided by the shield/potion is wrong (and the bonus doesn't factor into level-up), or unless my understanding of how constitution provides bonuses on level-up is wrong, it would seem the above topic is incorrect in some of the statements provided.
Could someone please clarify? Thanks
