So, I mean these bugs have been in the game for over a decade and I feel like most people don't know some of them or have just accepted it. However, seeing as there's actual patching happening again, maybe we can get these fixed. + Bushido skill - If you use jewelry to increase your bushido skill, your nerve strike damage is not increased with it. At 120 skill, the bonus damage from nerve strike should be 15-25. You can see in this screenshot where my real skill was 100 (using jewels to reach 120) that I hit for 11, which is well below the minimum. + Spirit speak skill - If you have real skill below 100, but use items to go over 100, you cannot see or understand ghosts. + Parry skill - Using + parry skill items does not increase your ability to successfully evade attacks. + Weapon skill - If you use items to go above 70/90 skill, you don't gain the ability to use special moves. + Tactics skill - Same issue as + weapon skill.
