Reply To: Suggestion: Student Buff


The agreement was that while the amount of experience the perk gives is balanced, the perk itself is rarely useful. It’s an ability that’s currently more useful as a trait than as a perk, unless they plan to introduce factors that influence the levels of mercs (level drain?).

Changing the perk to increasing stats at level up would keep the same problem as with Student though, in that its usefulness would still be strictly level dependent. You’d only want to pick it at level 1, because every level higher than that its effect diminishes, eventually becoming completely useless. Right now, Student is the only perk that can end up having no effect. I’d rather see that changed than having it be replaced with a perk that has the same problem.
