Unique item bonus question - Swordfighting
« Topic Start: December 04, 2017, 10:58:29 PM »
For example:
An adventurer has maxed their swordfighting skill... will the swordfighting bonus from a unique item still give an increase in the skill, or will it not improve beyond a characters natural maximum, therfore no point in using the item?

A unique item can indeed increase a character's effective skill beyond 100%.

However, adventurers will always be limited by their gear, and that can't (AFAIK) go over 100%.

That's good to know.

My character has had 100% gear for quite some time, but I expect the actual skill is not yet maxed (Haven't been to an academy for some time. Maybe it's time to revisit for curiosity).
At least I know the items will always be worthwhile.

Thanks for confirming.

Does this restriction apply to all gameplay (hunting, duels, infiltrator attacks, etc.), or just hunting?

There are only combat and adventure gears. So the restriction only applies to those two.

It applies to every use of the Adventuring and Swordfighting skills for adventurers.

Just re-reading this thread, not sure if I got it right or not. Adventurers are limited to 100% by gear and can go no further by normal means. Does this mean unique items will not be beneficial for an adventurer at 100% skill level already? or can the bonus still apply to adventurers at this level?

No matter what, adventurers cannot increase their skill past the level their gear allows. Thus, bonuses from unique items cannot improve adventurers' skill past 100%.

That's clear in my mind now,
Thanks again.
