How much willpower do gravely wounded soldiers lose? The text says they suffer a permanent reduction?
In my current Classic Iron Man game using both Iron Will and New Guy from the Training school I have:
I'm sure I had the Captain before I bought Iron Will, but at what point I don't know. I can't go back and calculate exact values because of the whole Iron Man thing.
Needless to say that Captain with 17 Will has seen her last mission. She panics when a window breaks.
I’ve been tracking these stats the last couple of nights: I had a my supper star support Colonel get gravely hurt twice. His will went from 91 to 81 and then to 67.
So new confirmed range is: -10 to -14.
I just had a major critically wounded and after the mission his Will sat at 70. Before the mission it was 100 and i know this because i just had him qualify for Psi-abilities from the psi-labs prior to the mission.
I suppose the drop in will isn't an issue in this circumstance since he's already psi-qualified and 70 is sufficient to not have issues in a mission. But 30 is a damn lot.
Even though this question is a year old i thought i'd reply anyway since it ranks high in the google search and the game has been on steam sale recently and probably seeing a lot more activity.
There is a difference between "gravely" and "critically" wounded. Gravely wounded soldiers lose some willpower for the remainder of the mission; but not permanently. Critically wounded lose their willpower permanently.
