    Hopefully I'm not double posting on a reported bug, but I searched and couldn't find any mention of this. Closest one was the thread on armor absorption.

    I've tried this on a few characters now and the same things happen. When I'm level 1 the counter chance and critical chance stats are affected by items and any character level higher than 1 they're dropped to zero and are only affected by taking skills that boost them. The skill list I'm using is:

    Dual Wield
    Battle Geology
    Alchemy
    Archaeology
    Shield Bearer
    Burglary
    Perception

    Here are screenshots of my character with and without a fedora on and one point in dual wielding as an example.

    Can you post a step by step on how you achieve this? We've wanted to resolve this bug for a while now and nobody had a way to clearly do it.

    The best step by step I can give is that:

    - I have the "You Have To Name The Expansion Pack" and named it.
    - I picked the skills in the order stated in thirst post. (Or have clicked the "last" button when I restarted this after noticing the problem).
    - I took perception as the first skill when the stat reduction occurs.

    I also tried restarting the game and steam, doing the same steps above, and it still occurs. Sorry that i can't give more info than this :/ I haven't died in the game shown above yet, so I could upload the save if that's wanted.

    Are you aware that Plutonic Fist drops your :counter: by 70 and :crit: by 35? Just the order of how things are evaluated forces your skills to come after it is truncated to zero.

    You sir, are a genius while I'm a mere forgetful moron. *facepalm*

    EDIT: But, there is still some bug here. That being the case, I shouldn't have 3 in my counter chance from the dual wield skill. Unless skill upgrades are counted differently from the general pool?

    Counter has a hard coded min limit of 3.
    I don't exactly know why. :p
