0005219: Possible Bug: Useless Willpower
It seems as if Willpower is useless in the current version. Despite having superior Willpower, Toughness, and Endurance; my Dwarf will give in to pain at a mere broken toe. This didn't seem to be the case in the last version.
Self-evident? Sorry.

Ya my dude seems a lot weaker too, here I was feeling big as a demigod and I get killed in about 4 turns. D: from bandits non the less.

not that I'm complaining, was still really fun. :)

Edit: Seems it is worse then I though, I need to find some armor So my dude can last more then 5 minutes. ether that or start playing better. :D

yea bones have something like 50 pain receptors, if your bones get chipped or broken you'll most likely give into pain. it is slightly unrealistic as broken bones don't usually cause people to pass out, tho a broken leg/toe will make you not want to stand for quite some time. blood loss however should cause people to pass out once in a while but doesn't.

My character has Very High Willpower and just occasionally will pass out for a broken bone with Extreme Pain.

Everything I've read says high Willpower is very important for survival.

Is it really broken or just an effect of bug 0002115?

Hard to be sure, but there doesn't seem to be any direct evidence for the Willpower aspect, so we'll call it a duplicate.
