Bite Kit Heal check modifier short by +3

Postby EventHorizon » Wed Jan 27, 2016 12:05 pm

Today, my character used a Bite Kit on a Diseased friend.

My character should have 12 Heal:

Level 2 (max heal invested; 5)
+3 Heal skill focus
+2 Wisdom modifier
+2 Devout modifier

When he used the kit on his friend, however, it only applied +9. This leads me to believe NWN ignored the Skill Focus: Heal modifier for some reason. Rolled well so the Disease was cured, but wanted to bring up this probably bug.

Possible causes:

Yesterday, at level 1, my character died (-11 hp) and then respawned, but without any maiming/penalties. Then in the next thirty minutes, my character hit level 2 (and I leveled up as normal). My skills generally look right (e.g. escape artist is appropriately 5 base+2 from ability modifier=7), I think, besides that Heal check/the missing 3 Heal from the skill feat.

Aaaand yet when I used a Heal Kit to heal an injured PC today, I had the full +12. So maybe Bite Kits aren't getting the heal skill focus bonus. Must be. Should they?

It was most likely because the respawn didn't reapply your Skill Focus bonus, as you described. That bug has been fixed now.

I believe they should, but don't take my word for it. Perhaps the Bite Kit checks are calculated a bit differently?
