Are you sure that that formula is right? I dont remember it being like that.
Im not home so i cant check.
Perhaps you are reading about preaching where there is 30% (or it was 20%) per level of the priest.

On the other hand. Perhaps it should be said that with a dominion score of 4 there`s only 40% chance of dominion increase per sacrifice(each like a temple check).

I took it directly from page 93 of the manual, so unless it was changed in a recent patch, it should be correct.

You have a lot of faith in the manual's descriptions of technical details being right. I don't *know* that this particular formula is wrong, but I do know that the manula gets lots of technical aspects wrong. I wouldn't take any of the manual's specific claims about mechanics at face value - consider it no more reliable (and possibly less reliable) than a somewhat experienced player's impression of how the game works.

Maximum level you can reach by preaching is : (2 * holy level) + 1

You get a malus when you preach in ennemy dominion, alleviated by the inquisitor bonus.

With holy 3 priests preaching in your dominion, you can be very hard to domkill, even with a relatively low dominion value.

Unless you've got inquisitor bonus. Ulm's Iron Priests get a potential 5H for preaching in temples, and Marignon can get 7H, and possibly 9H.

Humakty has it right. H3's can bring your dominion up to 7 at a temple. Inquisitor bonus does not affect the max dominion you can create in a province by preaching.

But even if you have 20H3s at a temple, the preaching happens before dom spread and the check for dom death. So they bump up your dominion to 7, but if there are net 7 successful enemy dom spread temple checks against that province, it's still dom death.

Yep. That's why you can't just preach defend your cap - you should also preach defend other forted templed locations. By spreading those priests out amongst 4-5 provs, you can still prevent dom death even against crazy amounts of spread.
