Can anyone else confirm this is a bug with Mod 7. If it is, it's hard to believe it's not on the known issues list.

It would take a permadeath guy to bust that one out! JK JK JK! Hard to believe I didnt notice this on my cleric last night. She has a level of sorc and usually takes 2-3 tries to hit herself with a jump when runnin around. Play with it while it lasts I guess.

I'm looking for confirmation. As I didn't try it myself, I'm not sure. I'll go try it.

I just confirmed it. There is no arcane spell failure while wearing heavy armor. This should be added to the known issue list.

Which spells were you casting?

This was in the Release Notes:

When using a scroll for a spell available to multiple classes, you will now make the most advantageous combination of Arcane Spell Failure/Caster Level Check/UMD rolls, instead of always treating it as a wizard spell.

Do you have a level of cleric? There's been a bug around for awhile where a sorc with a level of bard wasn't getting ASF in light armor for any spells. Just wondering if this now also applies to a sorc with a level of cleric in full plate, possibly due to the change for scrolls.

This was in the Release Notes:

Pure wizard. Drow. Level nine. Wearing normal half-plate. Shield, False Life, mass protection from evil (whatever it's called), every elemental resist and protection. None from scroll. Armor related arcane spell failure is broken.

Pure Wizard. No rolls. It's broken in a big way.

Too funny.

Who needs tanks now when you can roll up a sorc with 60+ AC, full time displacement, and massively stacking firewalls and death spells.

Yeah, I would say that one is bit of a gamebreaker. I hate extra downtime as much as everyone else, but we are going to need a hotfix for this one ASAP.

Until then I guess I will solo Gianthold quests on my 8th level Wiz in his +4 Fullplate and +4 Towershield!:D

Kidding, kidding................................. I think.

I think we need KK to chime in with an emergency declaration of exploit here.

LOL, even in full plate with a tower shield, casters are still going to get nailed most of the time anyway. Displacement will always be better than armor at high levels. I'll stick with the Fearsome robe myself.

You mean you are going to exploit a bug? :D

Sorry just had to based on the other thread, no malice intended.

Wicked. I've got a sweet set of adamantine plate and tower shield sitting in the bank for my sorc. Don't need spells anymore, I'm a tank! Weeeeeeeee! :D

If it's not fixed with the hotfix, I"m picking up adamantine body on my WF wiz until it is, heh... Free DR for the win.
