This ability allows Cyrus to glean information from townsfolk by interrogating them.
This Path Action is the Rogue counterpart to Alfyn's Path Action, Inquire. The information and benefits obtainable from both Scrutinize and Inquire are the same; if you Scrutinize someone, you will not need to Inquire them and vice versa.
When attempting to Scrutinize, you will be presented a percentage of success based on Cyrus' level and that of the NPC; as Cyrus' level increases, the chance of success increases as well.
A successful interrogation may yield one of many benefits:
- A Hidden Item
- New Weapons for Sale
- More Plentiful Provisions
- Discount at the Inn
- Guide with Ease
- Thieving Tips and Tricks
- Smarter Bartering
- Provoke like a Pro
- Challenge with Ease
- Undeniable Allure
If you fail the interrogation, your reputation in the current town will drop by one level. However, you can still try and interrogate them again as long as your reputation is still good in that town (i.e you haven't failed five times).
