"Creed of Arun" feat is *incorrect*

I reached lvl 4, and saw the description for "Creen of Arun" in-game as:

  • +1 Dexterity to a maximum of 20
  • You can fight using two weapons even if the one-handed melee weapons aren't light



This is incorrect. The wiki for the same feat lists "Creed of Arun" as:


I notice that many people are selecting "Creed of Arun" in-game, expecting the benefits for the feat "Ambidextrous". The description of this feat needs to be corrected.

I noticed this as well.  I couldn't figure out why there were two feats that did the same thing.  I thought maybe one of them was a bonus given upon character creation to a certain build.  Glad you figured it out.  Hopefully they will fix this soon!!

jeezus, I just took Creed of Arun instead of Ambidextrous because it fit the flavor of my group having a cleric of Arun...fix the bugs and add the QoL improvements everyone's asking for before leaving EA folks!

Same mistake. Took Arun for flavor not realizing it was a bug.

Folks. I just made this mistake too. 

If you're remotely technically savvy I think I found a way to edit your save game and replace the current feat with the correct one. 

You will need to follow the instructions provided here: https://fearlessrevolution.com/viewtopic.php?t=14147&start=15

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING BE SURE TO TAKE A !COPY! OF YOUR SAVE AND WORK ON THAT. 

I've just made this change and haven't played my campaign much since so it might result in stuff breaking down the line. So fair warning, in case you break your save game, completely untested dirty hack here.

Download notepad++, install hex editor plugin. Open your save game, click plugins-> Hex Editor - View in hex. 

Now, scroll to the bottom. Search, changing to unicode string search mode, for 'Creed_Of_Arun' and you should find the character in question.

Now you should see something like this.

Feats.0........Creed_Of_Arun..Feats.0StringGuid).......d2bedff851762bc4c8fd5dd1fdaafe92 

Simply replace that hex guid with this one which I extracted from a different character

The name doesn't matter, leave it as it is, the guid is the only bit that matters. Now, add that new saved file back into the zip, overwriting the old file and load the save. Bingo.

I only avoided it because I noticed 2 did the same thing and there was obviously a 6th Creed missing.
