The game makes a save then it's activated, important for Honor difficulty.

This item has an immortality bug attached to it. if you put in a backpack, after you die an ashen idol appears in you're general inventory, but there is still a regular idol in the backpack. if you die again, another ashen idol appears in you're general inventory, but still there is a regular idol in the backpack, and so on and so on...

People are constantly going on about how the idol is better than a ressurrection scroll in every aspect, but there is actually one way in which it is worse.

When you are revived via a ressurrection scroll, all the cooldowns on your abilities are reset. When you are revived by the idol, they're not.
In most cases, it's a very minor difference. But for characters which have a few powerful spells that could turn the tide of a battle, it can have a big impact...

I agree on that it can be more useful. For example I fought one level 18 troll on accident when my party was level 10 and the tactic that I saw myself forced to use was reviving my tank every round to taunt him, as he literally one shot anyone in my team. So I had 1 char to mainly resurrect and buff and 2 to kill the troll while my tank died 4 times or so. Not the most elegant solution, but just reloading is lame and it worked.

In response to the guy with the 4x dead tank, MAN that tank must hate you now. You made him die, painfully, 4 times with no care and a flippant "well, we're going to resurrect you! It's fiiiine."

Does the exp you get share between all characters, and if so can you just keep hiring mercenaries 3 at a time for 5k exp every time that’s shared?

You can still get multiple idols for the entire party! As stated by another comment below: 1. Speak with Dorotya and select the "Transparent Chrysalis" option. 2. Don't follow her to the other room to kiss and allow her time to walk back to her room. 3. Repeat step one and two with a different character - and repeat further until your final character. 4. Follow her to the room and kiss with your final character. 5. Allow her time to return to her room and in reverse order as to how you began, speak to Dorotoya and apologize to kiss her again. 6. Follow her to the room and kiss - then repeat (in reverse order as to how you begat) with your remaining characters. ** I did the above on 3/4 characters in my party. I then pick pocketed the idol from Dorotoya on the third character before following through with her giving it to me. This way, I did not have to lose constitution on all four charters, but still have four idols.

Comeback Kid seems to work very well with this while Morning Person seems to be made obsolete due to the idol resurrecting your character at 100% health. I'd recommend putting this (these) on your high-risk-of-death characters like Rogues and Wizards Also, you can only get 2 of these per game now; one via stealing (from Dorotya), and one via Dorotya's quest

Not so. You can get up to four [4] idols by repeatedly starting Dorotya's quest on all four party members, then closing the quest loops out in reverse order. I confirm this works, see an earlier post on this page.
