    Title really. I don't really have any idea what I can actually do to fix my uh... less than truthful early behavior ^_^. I can list off a slew of things that will drop it, however lol...

    In my defense, I didn't go stealing a bunch of stuff, but I didn't type out my full name when the elves CONSTANTLY asked me for my name and such like that. It, naturally, was extremely tedious and didn't seem to matter at that point in time. Weeeeeell fast forward to now... yea.

    So, any ideas?

    Apparently looting enough bodies is enough to drop truth virtue, which seems crazy to me. Newbies gotta survive the hard way.

    Edit: apparently not anymore, according to Lum's comment further down the thread

    Looting bodies? You mean like dead bodies in the sieges, for example, lowers Truth?

    Tell everyone NPC that you talk to "My name is <your name>" I had this phrase copied to memory and just pasted it as the first thing I say to every NPC and my truth steadily increased of the course of a few hours. I also just reset my quest status so I am starting the Path of the Loading Screen quests all over again.

    This did earlier in the game's development but we removed it specifically because it unfairly targeted new players.

    If you can fight Cabalists, talk to the Truth caretaker in Aerie and ask about their names - Dolus, etc to know which ones to fight.

    Thanks Lum! Yeah that would have burned me quite a bit. I still have issues with Truth. It's funny because I chat with the Oracle and answer truthfully about my being untruthful but that doesn't raise it! Such a quandary ;)


    Ohhhhh.... hint taken! ty :D

    So from reading this thread the only way to raise truth is saying your correct name to NPCs then?

    You should also ask them the standard questions. At least the oracle will recognize that as seeking truth.
    Name
    Health
    Job
    News/Rumors
    If you do that to 10-ish NPCs she will note it in your weekly confession. Hence if you have that as a habit you will soon be fine.

    Then above that you really need to do Blood River and Kiakis.

    From time to time you get decisions in side-quests which influence attributes like truth, compassion, ... e.g. will you tell him the truth about him/her or will you spare his feelings? Maybe in the future, given they will implement much more side-quests, this will have some influence on your virtues.

    I dont know if this is the only way but this is a way and it was quite easy to get my shroud to 5 int this way.

    Killing cabalists gives courage and only courage, no matter which cabalist you kill.

    I do that as well, though some NPC ask for your name at the very first, and if you just paste in the phrase, you get dinged because it is more than your name.
    Plus they call you by the full phrase after that.

    Of course, though now my five avatars have 'no truth in him'.

    "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
    When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." - John 8:44

    Thus there is no forgiveness in SOTA, or from the Oracle.

    bwahahahahahahaha

    Same here. The Oracle told me something about "taking something from the dead. But their family may have wanted it. "

    That is because you still have it in memory from when it was a valid ding. Forgiveness wasn't granted retroactively.

    (the hit was EXTREMELY minor)

    @Lum the Mad

    Quick question, do we only get the truth increase when the NPC asks us our name and we respond truthfully. Or do we get an increase even if we tell them our name without them asking? Thanks!
