damaged attributes for an assassin - any shortcuts?

Post by daggerdude » Sun Dec 15, 2019 10:51 pm

So for whatever reason cure poison and cure disease does not work to cure damage attributes as a result of poison, and a temple will not cure it with the cure disease button. You can't buy potions right off the bat, and things are very difficult as it is even if you have potions for sale to find the specific potion.

My character is an assassin, so cannot join the mages guild to buy a spell. It's also very tricky trying to move on with only 30 speed to play with....

Any advise?

What version are you using? Because while the former is to be expected in Daggerfall, the latter is supposed to work since 0.10.14

It does, but rank is required for this service.

You unfortunately need to actually join the Temple(any of them) and get to the rank where they start giving you free healing. After that they heal your attributes for free. I really dislike this system, it just feels so character breaking when my badass massmurdering assassin is forced to join a lame temple just to heal attributes. I doubt those Temple members would even want a character like that in their faction.(except School of Julianos) :D

Well 2 temples will give you the service as soon as you join (Arkay & Stendarr) so you could join to heal and do zero quests or ranking with them.

They do? Was not aware of that actually. Always thought that you need at least 1 rank up. Thanks for the info.
Edit: Arkay temple also has Shortblade,backstab,destruction and daedric as required skills, usually characters of more "evil" nature would have at least one of those skills high enough to join. Medical is also quite common skill.

So as i feared cure disease does not also cure attribute damage. This should absolutely be a thing as a quality of life feature so that you dont have to join a temple in order to get attribute restoration... especially if you can't buy potions like in later games .

I do agree that there should be some way to restore damage attributes without joining a faction, but it should be a mod. This is how classic works. I still think the best way to do this would be that Temples would heal damaged attributes on holidays when they offer free/discounted services.

Edit: I made a mod request for this as there are now multiple people requesting this feature.

I could see an expansion of the Witches Covens role in providing this. They always seemed to be somethings outside the faction system found in the cities. Of course traditionally they are hard to find so might not be the ideal fall back to depend on curing your attributes. I could see the dark brotherhood having an alliance with them so maybe a representative could be placed in their guild hall. Offering similar services as both a temple and the mages guild with a quest you have to complete for them to get their services.
