I'm using the max party mod, the challenge mod, and some quest system modifications. this is the first time i've leveled up on a difficulty setting above my character level. I have some XP debt. most of the rest of my party is level 75-78 or so. my character is a warrior. I'll see if my recruits get the attribute point gain when they level up.
