The party finished cleaning up the dungeon guards when I noticed Puk couldn't cast his priest spells, … the import bug.
For those that haven't played DS with a priest of Tyr yet there is a bug in Beamdogs code that converts the class into a broken cross between cleric and fighter.
The work around;
Instead of importing the save normally you can pick "single player" (assumed) then select "new game" then press the "create party" button.
Import the other group members from the "final save" one at a time as per normal... This collects their gear | experience and is very important to establish which member is the bhaul spurn... The fact that you wake up virtually naked still tells the game what items to offer you when you start to explore.
Now the work around part is to create your priest of tyr character from scratch instead of importing him from a character file or save.
The draw back is that this tyr priest will only have the basic 7th levels of experience that a character whom hasn't completed dragionspear gets... Feel free to shadowkeeper it if thats a stress but i'm playing on legacy of bhaul and turn undead is broken for that level anyway
