    Does DCI work for Archers in PvP? I see a little mixture of both, archers that have a lot and archers that don't have any, not even the 5% quiver. I was told it does and doesn't by a few people, and just wasn't very sure.
     
  2. Yes.

    HCI works off of Swords, Fencing, Macing, Archery, Throwing, Wrestling & Mage Weapons.

    DCI works off of Swords, Fencing, Macing, Archery, Throwing, Wrestling, Defensive Wrestling & Mage Weapons.

    How though? i don't understand how hit chance works vs archers.

    I can understand chance to hit/defend vs wrestle, fence, swords, throwing and mace but not archery as i presumed it had no melee element?

    if an archer and swordsman both are 120, do they have a 50% chance to hit each other? If so melee seems a bit underpowered or archery overpowered?
    If this is true i could tank with an archer and high DCI, just the same as a samurai with no parry? Bonkers!

    Please can someobe resolve this with some nice examples and numbers? :D
     
  4. All weapon skills (except Defensive Wrestle) have a base chance to hit and a base chanse to dodge, HCI & DCI properties are extensions off of that base chance. Defensive Wrestle only has the dodge part so DCI still works but HCI doesn't.

    Yes. Then after that HCI/DCI/HLA/HLD are factored in.
