Quick question[edit]

...and hopefully a simple one. Does the priest's blessing actually do anything? 20:45, 19 July 2008 (EDT)

Taken from the online Guide (link found on Arena page):
Blessing: characters on any action performed within the next twenty-four hours. This can be especially useful to the person that needs just that little extra luck against a stronger or tougher adversary, or just to even the odds. Blessing can make the difference between finishing a quest successfully, or not exiting at all. The cost is dependent upon how much is donated to the temple in question. As with all places, temples may show partiality to those from its own province.
Hope that helps. Vesna 17:26, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

Any Benefit to Drinking Alcohol?[edit]

I understand that drinking excessively causes a unique status ailment, indicated by the message "You are drunk." in the status display and a green background to the character portrait. This effect cannot, apparently, be removed by casting "Cure Poison" or by drinking a Potion of Cure Poison. The status appears to go away on its own after a few in-game hours. However, it is not entirely clear what the effect of this intoxication is. Do you know what the harm is in being drunk?

Also, since it costs a positive amount of gold to imbibe, I would expect that there is some benefit, but I have not yet determined one. It does not appear to affect Spell Points or Fatigue. It appears to have no effect other than to build up to drunkenness. Is there any reason to drink alcohol in Arena other than role-playing and potentially imposing a handicap on oneself?

Alcohol Bug[edit]

The reason I removed the 'bug' is that it is not a bug that myself and others on the Older Scrolls discord have been able to replicate, with the average number of drinks being 15 to become drunk. This is based on a variety of factors and so can be less or more. Imperialbattlespire (talk) 21:28, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

@KShrimp: I'm curious as to the nature of the alleged bug. What's the issue? I know you're a programmer...can you point me to the problem in the EXE file?
In any event, given issues with bug replication, if there is indeed a bug, I think we need to document exactly how/when it occurs. Otherwise, people are likely to just remove it once again. It's not enough to say that there's a bug with getting drunk, we need to document what the bug is. Robin Hood(talk) 22:15, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
