I am wondering what things look like on the 'other side' when it comes to Divine blessings, favors, and boons and what the generally accepted etiquette is on this.
My opinion has always been that a blessing which comes from a specific deity at a certain time or event has more meaning and encouragement than one I would get for hunting/offering. However, I feel it simply rude to just ask for a blessing when you want to go hunting for a few days. Still, some people tell me that's the only way they end up having blessings to hunt - by asking in their orders. The blessings do affect your stats and gold drops in some hunting areas, so this has become something really sought after and helps in PK.
What would happen if the Gods had two different kinds of blessings?
- Automated and runs on how much a person offers, which results in them getting a boon, favor, or blessing, could come with a message that says it's automated and issued by that deity's priest or priestess for helping bolster their essence and shrine power?
- Personalized/flavored that carries more lore weight than stat support?
TL;DR Do you normally ask for blessings and pray not to get smote instead? Do you keep offering till they take notice? Do you often find yourself with multiple blessings at once?
