Description

  1. Start a new game with the Abdel pre-gen character and select Legacy of Bhaal mode.
  2. Move to Drizzt's area: C:MoveToArea("AR4200")
  3. Explore the area: C:ExploreArea()
  4. Jump ( Ctrl-J ) to [2800.1900]
  5. Answer ( 2 > 3 ) in dialogue with Drizzt.

Observed

Drizzt doesn't attack the gnolls.

Expected

Drizzt should attack the gnolls.

Notes

Drizzt will cast bless and protection from fire/cold at the start of combat with gnolls, then nothing. He does not attack at all; just sits there and gets killed by gnolls. Does not respond when attacked by CHARNAME either.

The image of Drizzt character sheet is from Joluv on Beamdog forums. It shows 0 attacks per round.

Hypothesis: +1 apr on LoB increases Drizzt's apr beyond 5?

Internal report #25154.

The bug is still there as of 2.3.67.3. Checking with Infinity Engine, It seems that Drizzt is the only creature with 9/2 (10) APR in the entire game (with SoD). In BG2:EE beside drizzt there's also Artemis Enteri and Arkanis Gath with that value, but I don't know if they are affected, no idea about other games.

It seems that LoB giving him +1 value indeed turns the counter that's why the behaviour.

N.B. Drizzt can still cast spells in this state, based off his AI, including casting curing wounds when wounded enough and charming players when they come too close.

I noticed the same issue in old version on this video https://youtu.be/Ko7UHZ1GjBs?t=51m59s and on a recent Beamdog forums post: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/66203

It's indeed worth to check other characters in both games. Harpagornis from the forum mentions the same happens with Slayer Irenicus in Hell. https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/comment/847885/#Comment_847885
