Murderous Intent UMD Check
« on: June 25, 2023, 12:56:22 PM »
After the most recent update the UMD requirement for murderous intent (Scythe) seems to be off.

If my recollection is correct, previously murderous intent could be used once your UMD cleared a 10 (which made sense since you had to have at least a 10 to emulate the alignment gap). Currently, I cannot wield it even with a 20 UMD score which per the nwn wiki should clear a character up until an item value of 20,000 when emulating alignment, which would be a higher value than the cap of 8k on the new item proposal thread. So, something seems a bit off. I built the scythe in the toolset and before the deduction for evil only, its value floats around 6300.

put it on fixed bugs, please move when possible.

Side note: a 24 gets it to work but a 24 and 20 should be equivalent for UMD right?

Not necessarily. We've revised the DCs years ago to account for the fact POTM is lower magic than vanilla NwN, so it was too easy to use all items with minimal investment.

I'd like to reply on this to say that various other items seemed to have risen in item value along with the HAK update.
E.G. rings of arcane stillness are incredibly risen in value, and thus UMD cost. Perhaps related? I believe it was already being looked into.
