Deck of Many things - Star draw for Imoen

How come Imoen gets a Dex increase rather than an Int increase on a Star draw? Unmodded game so she was at Thief 7 / Mage 20

    Wondering if there is something up with Dual class characters. Just tried Anomen and he got +1 str rather than Wis

    I think it's because it uses their original class instead of their current class for determining the prime stat for the Star card, yeah. Kinda silly, but there you have it. You could always edit your save game with EE Keeper and swap around the stat bonus though!

    Weird. I tried Jaheria and she got +1 Str

    Rats, my recollection is not as good as I had hoped then

    Not sure my the error is in the Dual class bit (maybe active class, not original class?) or in the "spellcasting favoured" bit

    Can anyone else help us out?

    Multiclass characters might work different to dual-class characters. The key test would be to try using Aerie for the Star card; I believe that, in EE at least, she's a Cleric/Mage, so if multiclass characters use their first class to determine the stat boost she should get Wisdom.

    That would make sense, as when Jaheria got Str +1 I had a F/M in position one. Just wish Imoen could get Int +1

    Eh, not a big deal. Everything you need Int for, aside from minimum class requirements, can be handled with temporary Int. Just drink potions of genius/mind focusing for your spell scribing, and you're good. Another point of Dex for Imoen, in contrast, boosts all of her thief skills by 5 and gets her +1 to hit when attacking with ranged weapons.

    Yep the way INT is implemented a mage with a only average value is as good as a 18 INT one. Just a less user friendly as jou have to plan the use if the potions of genius, learning with each potion many spells at once, usually when a fundamental spell scroll is found.

    Drinking multiple potions of genius might be kinda fun!
