Do followers passive bonuses like Templar's Loyalty or Scoundrel's Hysteria still works while a follower is "dead"?

1 Answer 1


No, they do not work if follower is dead.

Followers will not stay alive easily past Normal, and if they're not alive you aren't going to be getting their bonuses.

It has been designed in this way to discourage their usage at higher level difficulties. By design their role is to let players get used to play with others at Normal difficulty, and substitute followers with "human" players at highest difficulties.
