Wisdom BUG

Postby Saskuke » Sat Jul 06, 2013 10:23 am

I'm kind of new to Morrowind; just got it a few months ago, but there is a problem with my Willpower statistic.

Not sure what affected me to have 0 Willpower, but it remains stuck at 0. There are no debuffs on me, and I have tried restoring it with Restore Willpower potions, but it remains at 0. Any item I have that tries to boost my Willpower has absolutely no effect.

Any ideas on what it could be? I got it early in the game, and I'm only level 26.

Willpower, not Wisdom... Please disregard the typo...

Is it a disease? Try a cure disease potion?? It shouldn't go all the way to zero with just one disease and I don't think diseases stack. Report back if it doesn't work.

I've tried potions, I've tried shrines, but I have no diseases, blights, or any other sort of debuff.

There's a long standing bug in the game that was never fixed with an official patch whereby if you get inflicted with a disease or otherwise have an attribute reduced while wearing an item that boosts the attribute then no restore spell or potion will work properly.

So first try taking off any item that boosts willpower and take a potion or cast a spell to restore it and/or visit a Tribune Shrine and get an Almsivi (sp?) blessing.

That's assuming that when you take off boost items the attribute is red on the character screen. If it isn't then there could be something else involved, and that would baffle me.

Something else you could try is using the console if you're playing on a PC. I think the syntax is player->setav willpower ##, which if my memory isn't buggered would see you willpower set at whatever number you used instead of ##. So if you typed player->setav willpower 70 your willpower should be set to 70.

Apologies if the above is not helpful, it's been a long time since I played the game.

Just checked UESP, the syntax is actually player->setwillpower ##

Just looked at my gear, and I own no items that increase any statistics when equipped, so it must be something different. I think I'm going to try the syntax suggestion.

By the way, umm, what's syntax, and how do I access syntax? I am very unfamiliar with terminology.

syntax is the code to get the computer to operate what you are trying to do.

I believe you access the console, usually it is the wavy horizontal line in the upper left corner of the keyboard.

Then you type the syntax in to the computer
player->setwillpower ##

So...

player->setwillpower 50

That would set the willpower to 50. If you then close the console you can play your game again with 50 willpower.
