Pillars of Eternity developer Obsidian Entertainment managed to release a big patch for the role-playing game right before the holiday weekend. This update fixes a major headache with the game among many other issues.
Since launch, double-clicking an item to equip it removed all bonuses from the character. This meant that characters were permanently deprived of many key advantages like their class and racial perks. Many players didn't realize this had occurred until several hours into their playthrough. For players like me that started Pillars of Eternity after the bug was revealed, it made every trip into the inventory fraught with peril. It felt like I was defusing a bomb every time I dove into my party's bags
The bug is now gone thanks to Patch 1.03, though. Furthermore, this fix is retroactive. If you saved your game after your bonuses were stripped away by the bug, you'll now find them restored to normal.
Patch 1.03 also includes over two dozen balance changes. Arbalests and Mind Blades have both been tuned down. The stat bonus for having less than a full party has been increased, which should make the early stages of the campaign easier to manage. If you're still having trouble with the game even with the new balance changes, there's always cheat codes to fall back on.
Here's the list of "big ticket items" for the patch. You can read the full list of changes at Obsidian's forum:
