Hell knight armor MAXDEX settings are not working.
Hell Knight Armor (Ex)
At 2nd level, a Hell Knight earns the right to wear Hell Knight plate, which does not reduce his speed. While wearing this armor, the Hell Knight reduces its armor check penalty by 1 and increases the maximum Dexterity bonus allowed by 1. At 5th level, these adjustments increase to 2. At 8th level, these adjustments increase to 3.
A level 8 hell knight with hell knight plate equipped still has a max dex of 1 when it should be 4.
I do see the MAX DEX box near BAB getting the bonus. Is this the only place that is supposed to update?
My assumption was the armor itself would also show the max dex of 4 not 1.
Depends on the set up. The values don’t translate easily. You’re looking at a Global Var impacting a Local Equipment Var. If the top ‘header’ portion is correct, then that’s what matters. What happens on the local equipment is much harder to change. Hence the reason I’ve been pushing hard for the replacement formula system.
Looks like this is fine, it was just that the parts of the sheet I expected to update didn’t. Upon further comparison, the skills look correct and the max dex bonus seems to have updated under the base attack field. I also tweaked my character to give a bigger dex bonus and it also updated the appropriate skills.
