Piety no longer showing up on server "heartbeat"

Post by Griefmaker » Thu Nov 26, 2020 9:10 pm

Hi everyone,

I am not certain if it is intended to be this way or if something is going on, but it used to be that when the server had its 6-minute "heartbeat" and gave the RPR and hunger/thirst/rest meters, the piety would show up as well.

I have noticed only recently at least it no longer does.

It is not really an issue, as you can see it if you type in -date or do anything which affects piety, I was just curious if it was an intended thing.

Thanks!

What are the classes of your character?

Some classes like cleric, especially if you have them as dips, give a 0.1 piety increase per tick, which counters the -0.1 decrease. This means that such characters will not see any change in their piety at the server heartbeat, because it essentially does not change.

I am playing a healer cleric right now with all 7 levels in cleric.

I actually believe I have not seen his piety decrease by that 0.1% either, so that could indeed be why I am not seeing it, since there is no net gain or loss. Good call! Thanks!

Then it is because at low cleric levels the hourly gain matches the hourly decrease. As you rise in levels you will see the piety again, but as a net increase, not as a decrease. At least when your piety is not maxed already. :)

Case closed!
