Dodge

Post by astronomical » Tue Jan 21, 2020 1:53 am

Does anyone know:

1) how to calculate dodge % based on your +dodge stat. For example: does +1 dodge = +1 dodge %?
2) how does dodge relate to the accuracy of a mob? Is there a way to calculate how much dodge you need to dodge a particular type of mob?
3) what is the dodge cap?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

I saw the stats page which talks about which stats give +dodge, but that post does not state HOW the dodge stat is used. For example, does +1 dodge = +1 dodge %?
And if it is is +1 % dodge, against which kind of accy mob?

I will keep looking into this.

There is a combat post, but let see if I can pull it from memory.

+1 dodge = +1% dodge.

How it's calculated, if you have say 25% dodge, and a mob attacks you. It would roll the dodge percentage to see if it hits before any calcs are done with acc or AC.

So in game steps it would look like this...

Mob determines which PC to attack.
Dodge is rolled(if dodge end combat swing show dodge message)
Roll attack hit(test ACC vs AC)
Test if attack roll was crit
Roll damage if hit was success or crit.

I hope that makes sense, not the exact steps but the idea is the same.

Do players start out level 1 with a accuracy base other than the new stats you've added to your character? Like most monsters have a accruacy base anywhere around 85-100 for the most part and it gets higher for the harder monsters. Like I already know what a monster would be swinging at me, but how about a player? I'm not talking about seeing what they are wearing and what thier encrumbrance is plus what level they are to determine what accuracy they actually do have. if that makes any sense at all to you on what I'm trying to ask.

I'm not sure what the number is, but you also got to think about class too. Combat power plays a roll too, or mystics with their high MA will also effect the number.

Ya I understand that, but there has to be a base number where they all share the same value. A starting point if you must say. I was curious if there was anything of the sort knowing that there probably isn't since there are to many factors involved.
