Prophet or a priest
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:14:54 am »

Iíve read that there are some sorts of religious activity now with monks, priests and prophets - can you actually become one?

Yes, depending on how you define become. You can pose as one with the new cover identity mechanic (a prophet identity even opens up some fun new dialogue options), though actually joining an existing religion is currently impossible in the game.

Also only the monks and prophets are new, priests have been in the game for quite a few years as far as I know (maybe you're confusing them with pilgrims, which are another new religious caste).

I see, would posing as a prophet offer any benefits?

And yes, it seems I have indeed confused priests with pilgrims. Silly me.

I'm unaware of any particular gameplay benefits to choosing a prophet identity over any other profession, but being able to spout prophecies in the middle of conversation is just fun. :P

You can pretend to be one.
