Question, Comments, Brickbracks!

Shouldn’t lesser restoration spell restore your vision after Auntie Ethel kisses your eye and puts it back? I know there was magic involved especially with it being plucked out. But unlike Volo’s lil operation, the eye was put back and apparently is alive for lack of a better word.

I can see (BADA BING) why you would need a Greater Restoration spell to fix Volo’s damage, as the eye itself is completely removed.

The biggest reason I don’t even fool with letting them have their way is because losing critical hits is a big deal. Having Restoration spells atleast restore critical hits would be more balanced anyway. I don’t get why losing an eye stops all critical hits.


Gruumsh would totally agree with me and his priest are rather offended smile 👁 L X

I'm guessing that lesser restoration doesn't work because the Hag's curse is just too powerful. But even still, I'd like to know who thought that effect was a good idea and what plans they have for it, because it is damn punishing.

There is a spell called Remove Curse as far as I remember, but I think it is a lvl3 spell which are not available for now. Lesser Restoration is more for some conditions like diseases etc.

I would gladly take the Hag Eyed condition if they could get the look to go forward with the character.

It looks ***amazing*** in the cut scene, but the appearance disappears after that, sadly.

That said, the condition is harsh. I would appreciate some small benefit to go along with it. Like being able to use the Staff of Crones without the drawback of taking damage. Something like that.

Actualy it just depends a lot about wich damaging spells you use ...
If you are Wizard, relying mainly on damage through Magic Missiles*, or Witch Bolt ... it dont really have any effect for you, since those spells cant crit anyway. laugh

*wich are SUPER powerfull with certain artefacts ... so far i managed to enpower them up to: 1d4+1 +1d4 +1(or1d8) ... curently even +1d4 since this robe is buged and adds to any damage. laugh

Agree that some benefit would be appreciated ...
But i dislike when efefcts on me changes effects for artefacts ... i mean if this staff is supposed to poison me, then it should poison me no matter whatm i shouldnt be able to just turn it off, i should receive some benefit out of it ... if Hag's Eye would give me resistance to poison damage, to mitigate that effect, and some benefit (like temp. HP, or bonus damage) if i receive Poison damage, that would be cool. :3

Ethel gives you a charm which you can break to get an insane bonus, but I think it ends after the long rest. frown

I guess I think of it as something like the staff recognizing its own type of thing. As if the staff wouldn't hurt Auntie Ethel if she used it, but is cursed for anyone "outside" the family, so to speak.

But I would appreciate any benefit like that. Something flavorful that takes away a bit of the otherwise permanent sting.

Yeah, it's a consumable that goes away after a long rest. Meanwhile, the downside of Hag Eyed stays with you forever.
