    Has anyone else noticed this doesn't work all that well? Is it because monsters don't have HCI? I have used this in Doom, against Navrey, Medusa, etc, and seen little if any difference.

    Mmmmm, it depends on their base wrestling. If it's higher than 120 (yours) The equation is different than it is fighting a person of equal or lesser skill. IE they start with a higher hit chance.

    But, it does seem to work.

    HLA can reduce your HCI to negatives. Said so in a FoF a while back.

    best way to notice the effect is find something you can barely kill (or that can barely kill you) (w/o HLA)
    then use HLA and note the difference?

    It's not that great against casters since they don't need HCI, and it's worthless against stuff that you have no trouble with that wont hit much anyway.

    Learned long ago to hunt with a tamer / archer / mage or any combination of those. You'll be amazed at how much less repairing of armor you'll do. I'll toe to toe the big stuff just to get that old feeling from long ago when a demon was an epic fight 1v1. And the thrill of opening the corpse and seeing a bow or katana.
