Holy Marking is one of few, randomly assigned blessings a chosen humanoid companion may gain when exploring temples. It increases the base standing of every expedition by +3. There is also a secret explorer that starts with this perk.
Like all other blessings, the effect is permanent.
- The marking can be useful in pacifist strategies, especially in combination with Polyglot and Pacifist perks, but is also useful for hunting parties that constantly lose standing.
- High standing eases the recruitment of new companions at villages, and also allow for more shrine looting and wildlife-slaying before triggering angry natives to chase the group.
