UC confirmation.../help... (in General)
I always thought with UC you could only hit twice / round.
but with my latest battle:
Sir Gluteus Maximus pulverized Tom 
Sir Gluteus Maximus crushed Tom 
Sir Gluteus Maximus crushed Tom 
its obvious i hit trice. What are some of the variables that came to
this?And btw my UC minion is wearing a 213K ToA. (if that has anything to
do with it?) :P thx.

ToA + DX + to_hit granted by UC all play a part. I get triples more often than I get doubles against opponents where my DX is significantly higher and they have no evasion, even without a ToA.
I like the way UC seems to be holding its own here on CB2. Mags you got a pretty tough char going there. I'm glad the 153 evasion was a bug :)

Ok as with any character you can only get 2 DX based hits, anything beyond that is dependent on the PTH of the weapon. UC's pth is (if i remember correctly) the same as its effect number. In other words, if you have a your UC as xxxxxxx(25) then your pth is 25.

Unarmed Combat: 788,292/197,167 (77)
Wow! That's a nice UC mags! ;)
Yeah UC works out to be
[VBD x UC effect] (+UC effect)
Where VBD = Virtual Base Damage, something Jon's not released for UC yet and the UC effect is the number in the parenthases, ugg, brackets () (I know monty, I know!). :P

Are you sure it's that simple a relationship? An x77 weapon which still doesn't put the game's largest single tank in the top 15 for MPB would surprise me...

Only BL would put you into the top MPB zone.

BL doesn't contribute to MPB at all. Most of the really big MPBs are from bows. It's easy to get a few arrows to x15 and get a big MPB.
I'm impressed with the UC. I had pretty much ignored it, but it seems to be a viable strat. Kudos.

Thanks, Sefton and Almuric. I'm flattered. :D I'm doing pretty well, and the recent evasion enhancements mark the first point in Brock's career where I honestly feel he's better off with UC than without it. It's exciting.

Almuric: BL does contribute to MPB. A few months ago the MPB was changed to the actual damage of the blow, instead of the unmodified blow.

For what it's worth, my UC skill is the most highly trained skill in the game by far. Brock's base UC is nearly double the size of the nearest skill(Conquest's Archery), and the modified UC probably 7.5 times bigger than that. It takes a ton of XP to make this a viable strategy.
Hi Mags, that is the weapon code for UC. Jon confirmed it in a post a while ago. Bumping it up by 600K is massive! Was it the changes to Combat Gi's that did that?
May 28 2005 1:35 PM EDT
It's a combination of bonuses from my Gi, Helm's, and Elven Boots and Cloak. UC is ironically a very equipment-heavy strategy...
I forgot, that as a skill UC would get boosted from dexterity boosts from armour.
Same with Eva, BL and Archery.
Hmmm.. In that case, maybe EG s could be better for archery than Belegs?

it helps only UC, because there's no limit for UC.
Archery can't be more than it's effect limit of 1.00 (or 0.8 I forgot), but you can save some experience for other things.
