I was once told that HLD doesn't have a cap, true/false?

    With that said, if you can get 80 HLD (50 on weapon, 30 on mace and shield glasses), does the RNG roll ONCE, knowing you have 80 HLD, or TWICE, one for the 50 or however much on weapon PLUS 30 off glasses?

    If anyone finds hard facts on this, let me know.

    Test center displays your stats when you hover over the character, this includes DCI, when I hit my other character with glasses and weapon multiple times, I never saw it go below -25

    Wow totally misread that, I need to not post when I get off work.

    Thats is almost untestible I think.

    Ive heard its a RNG roll for 50 then a seperate for 30.. Meaning 50 is the Cap for each RNG roll.

    With that said.. its Possible.. 40+30 would be a RNG roll for 50 Then 20.. but on that im not very sure.

    It's been stated on Five on Friday that It gets rolled twice.
    I can't dig for it right now, sorry.

    It rolls twice... so if you have the glasses and a weapon with 50%... your chance to HLD is 65% of the time.

    There is no CAP on HLD you can have up to 80% with glasses. You have an 80% chance of it going off when swinging if you are wearing the glasses it will not lover there defense anymore than -25 but you do have a higher chance of landing the HLD with 80% and it resets the time each time you Successfully land HLD

    Ok... so I know it rolls twice... the only problem with this is that I hope they coded it properly.

    Because if it is random which one rolls 1st... and you are wearing the glasses and using a weapon with 50%...

    you could be hitting HLD 45% of the time (50% of 30% + 30%.) EDIT: should of been 50% of 70% + 30% for 65%

    OR

    you could be hitting HLD 65% of the time (30% of 50% + 50%)

    depending on which one rolls first...

    I dunno. Damnit, this is ghey.

    My original math wasn't right.

    50% (weapon) of 100% chance and then 30% of that 50% that is left over is 15%... so 50% + 15% = 65% which is how I understood the equation to work.

    Let's say I have a weapon with 10% HLD and the glasses...

    That's 10% of 100% which yields 90% and then 30% of 90% which comes out to 27% so 27% + 10% = 37% of the time.

    OR that's 30% and then 10% of 70% which comes out to... 37%

    So it works either way... I just messed up the original math.
