I've noticed that most of divine favors are not scaling with levels. Actually, only Asis god bless scales properly. So, I suggest to make it scalable to all the others:
1. Quantities per day - PC level/2 (;;god bless me actions)
2. Price in deity - 1-10 base, 11-20 - x2, 21-30 - x4, 31-40 - x8. I'll take these stages for the rest modifications.
3. Asis' bless should be replaced with cure light, moderate, critical and heal. As is, paying for possible full heal of 1000hp /some nice amount for lv40pc/ 1000piety points is just...  Rolling Eyes .
4. Summoned creatures (elementals) - base, huge, greater, elder. Andra - according to granted spells.
5. Buffs length - base, x2, x3,x4
6. ... More suggestions?

That should make piety points worth gathering/spending gold for to have some real help from your god in tough battles, and not just shouting for help just for fun. Probably the price increasement is too low, what do you think?

I have not looked over ALL the deity favors to have any opinion on scaling buffs ect...

BUT...

Yes, I think certain ones should scale.  The elementals should.  My level 40 typhis devotee's air elemental is quite useless most of the time.  It's only good for beating on things ridiculously under her level, or providing one or two seconds of distraction against things closer to her level (after said one or two seconds... there's no more elemental!)

The ONE change I would like to see....

CHOOSING between the favors!

Sometimes I *do* use the elemental, but there are times when I do not need or want it, and would rather the zephyr haste effect.  If I'm dishing out piety points.... I should be able to choose what I buy with them TBH.

There are other deities who also grant multiple favors, and the randomness of what effect you get makes it simply not fun or worth the hassle to use.

ok,
6. Add ;;god bless me1 and ;;god bless me2 vc commands Smile
7. Please, remove this "I sacrifice the remains..." from the chatbox, it's very annoying and makes it difficult to read whisps from PCs

I second the ability to choose gods' favors.

Random results are absolutely totally unusable.  And it's just for this reason that I don't use the diety favors, at all, despite their potential.

If one is in the middle of battle and sure could use a bit of something, but some other random favor happens... totally not useful.

You would think that the god would give you the most useful favor, after all, for your circumstances.  Rather than some random unhelpful effect that might be actually counterproductive (i.e., might get you killed, or at the very least take your time that could be used to fire off an actually predictably helpful spell).

If it's a VC command, that could be quickslotted.

Also, it would be cool to have something said for each choice, like "I call upon Prizimal to change night to day!"  Or if that's too much, then for all of them just a generic, "My Lord, bless me with your favor!"

These are all very good ideas which I would like to see Smile

Especially for the followers of Gort it would be nice if you can select which favour you want. I personally has never had a use for the horse you can get given that my demonspawn PC is a monk and can outrun any mount in the blink of an eye Razz A haste/mass hass effect would be a much nicer boon than a horse from the God of Travels; aids in getting you faster around the Realms and helps in combat!

Yeah, I never use the gort one either.  When i want a horse to go riding about... transference.  When I'm in a spot where I need transference to pop across a gap... Hello there horse...

Alastair's the opposite... he tends to want the horse more than a use of transference.
