i don't know how many of youse guys use this spell (after playing with it in BG1 i've come to love it for low-level fights), but I've had the startling discovery that this spell is bugged.

As per IWD text, it allegedly uses Staff Proficiency. However, actually using it on druids indicates that it is not Staff Proficiency. In fact, it is not any proficiency that a druid can have (I suspected it might have been club, but alas, not that either).

I'm using IWD vanilla with 1.06 and fixpack. Any of yinz use HoW and can attest to whether this is something that is broken across all versions? or just silently fixed in HoW and not in the fixpack.

just to note, the way I can tell that this is bugged is that my THAC0 jumps up from being 20 to 22, whereas it's 19 normally when I have a quarter staff equipped at level 1.

modded IWD+HOW+TOTLM (fixpack only)

spell: Shillelagh
description:

Shillelagh (Alteration)
Level: 1
Sphere: Combat, Plant
Range: Caster
Duration: 4 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 2
Area of Effect: Caster
Saving Throw: None
This spell enables the caster to create a magical cudgel that is +1 to hit and inflicts 2-8 points of damage. Proficiency bonuses or penalties are not applicable to this magical weapon.



actual item: shillel.itm
item type: 0-Misc/Book
proficiency: 0x00-None/BG1 Large sword
paperdoll animation: CL-Club
thac0 bonus: 0
rolls: 2d4 +0
damage type: blunt

there is another version of the .itm file (which may be a carry over from BG1)
actual item: shille.itm
item type: 0x11-Mace
proficiency: 0x00-None/BG1 Large sword
paperdoll animation: CL-Club
thac0 bonus: 3
rolls: 1d6 +1
damage type: blunt

unmoddifed (removed fixpack)
spell description did not change and it still creates shillel.itm
actual item: shillel.itm
item type: 0-Misc/Book
proficiency: 0x00-None/BG1 Large sword
paperdoll animation: CL-Club
thac0 bonus: 0
rolls: 2d4 +0
damage type: blunt

no visible change tho the fixpack did place a copy into the override folder.

I see no evidence of Thac0 jumping as high as you say.

use DLTCEP or NI to look up sppr110.spl in your game and see what the resource file (item being created) is in the Create Magic Weapon effect. It could be possible that the vanilla uses the 2nd item version I mentioned and HOW or TOTLM fixed it. That would account for the jump in Thac0 that you are seeing...

This should be addressed in v2. With HoW or TotL, Shillelagh is supposed to be without proficiency; in base IWD it's a staff prof.

What makes a good man go neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?
