    Hi.
    I am realizing lately, maybe i am very unlukcy lately, that, in this scenario:
    me: 120 sword, 100 tactics, 118 bush, 120 parry, with 25 HCI (sometimes more) and 35 DCI.

    fighting with the doom Shadow Night, he usually has 100 wrestling & tactics,

    lot of times, i fail!!, even 3 consecutive fails, and he lands 3 cons.blows, what the hell, this is a miracle or what?
    I must have about a 85% of succesful landing a blow, and he should not have even 20%, isn't it?
    Even with lightning strike i fail sometimes.

    What's the matter?
     
  2. The UO RNG sucks. Not much more to be said than that.

    Just an observation, with 118 bushido you might as well have 100 bushido. You are basically packing a 13% critical chance. Get it to 120 and then try again.

    If you are not using a 2 handed weapon, you're only penalizing yourself. As it stands with your stats now, you have about a 33% chance to block an attack. You have around a 30% chance if you're using a one-handed weapon.

    Even if HCI and DCI was figured in for mobs and you had 45 DCI and the mob had zero HCI, it would still hit you almost 30% of the time, based on said mob and your combat skills.

    Frankly you should congratulate yourself if you believe it is around 85% success on landing a hit. Normal circumstances you would only hit that particular mob less than 60% of the time.

    Just get bushido up to 120 and try again. That will figure in a little bit more for your offense, as well as your defense. But, only if you use two-handed weapons.

    per stratics witch my be wrong (probly is even if i havent heard a change to hit chance at all) you should have a 72% chance to hit that mob thats given 120 weapon skill vs 100 and 25 hci vs 0 dci with lighting strike you have +50 hci or aka 45 seeing how thats the cap for an 84% hit chance. 120 bush will only up your chance of getting a critical hit (meaining treating the monster as if it had 0 resists for the attack) and not your bonus to hit from using it so it has nothing to do with how often you hit.

    on getting hit you should have a 31% chance to get hit with a 34 for a 1 handed or 39 for a two handed weapon chance to block.
    meaning you shoudl only get hit about 20.46% of swings for 1 handed (31% - (31 * .34) or a 18.91% chance to get hit with a 2 hander (31-(31*.39)

    120 bush is gonna give you 1% more chance to parry not a big deal but it also gives you a huge jump in chance for crit with lighting strike and a small boost to confedence

    the sad truth is was the other player has stated the random number gen sucks hard core
