    Just curious, I have read that 100 eval int + 100 anatomy = 120 dodging. Does dodging stack with parry and dci? If so would having a weapon skill negate the 120 dodging? Also just how effective is dodging?

    Parry & DCI will stack on top of 100 Eval & Anatomy.

    adding a weapon skill, won't stack the dodge chance.

    You need a total of 220 pts between Anatomy + eval for it to give you the defensive side of a 120 combat skill. Other than that parry only gives you a % chance to block a hit..... Your "Dodge" (Anat + eval )determines your CHANCE of being hit...

    Not sure I understand..... Having Dodging outdoes having Parrying when vs. a Melee skill ?

    And if so, what if one has both, Dodging and Parrying ? What's the outcome vs. a Melee skill ?

    The formula is Anatomy + Evaluating Intelligence + 20 / 2 = Wrestling skill level as far as defense is concerned. The formula is Anatomy + Evaluating Intelligence + 20 / 2 = Wrestling skill level as far as defense is concerned. So with 120+120 you actually have 130 wrestling skill worth of dodge chance.

    also keep in mind that parry needs 80 dex to be fully effective..

    The defensive formula is capped to 120 so there is no use going past 120 eval and 100 anatomy. If you also have parrying in addition to defensive skill from anat+eval I believe the system does 2 rolls: first one to see if you get hit and 2nd to see if you parry the hit (assuming you do get hit).

    So with 120 defensive skill & 45% Defense Chance Increase vs an opponent with 120 offensive skill & 45% Hit Chance Increase there is a 50% chance of getting hit and after that 35% chance to parry the hit (assuming 120 parry & 80 dex).

    Cmon guys its fairly simple here


    the anat/eval equation is the exact same as having 120 wrestle, you just dont get the use of 2 specials. Thats it. You can parry the same and everything.

    I hope that helps

    Not entirely correct on your formula.

    The correct formula is (Anatomy + Evaluating Intelligence + 20) / 2
