really weird bizzaro dx bug? (in General)

[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:06 AM EDT

um just noticed this as i was fighting against Kaiousama.
my char: Provocative Thoughts has DX: 10,000 but when i fight against Kaiousama at the battle stats my DX drops to 4,000?? where did the other 6K DX points go?

um Kaiousama does not have EC or that dx reducing hxbow...

whats happening? or am i at this moment totally oblivious to something? lol

You're using a bow and shield, there is a DX penalty IIRC.

[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:12 AM EDT

if u inspect my char with ^the link above^ it says i got 10K dx, but come fight time its 4K :S.

and i just noticed another thing, its not only against Kai that i have 4K dx its against every other person on my fightlist :S

[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:13 AM EDT

nope Ford, i just checked it now and w/o the shield i still have that dx penalty :S

I've got 500 Dex and nothing happened when I fought Kai.

Shield + bow is not a 60% reduction in dex.

My ROUGH guess would be some sort of no melee bug.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 16 2005 5:19 AM EDT

Doh! That wold be it. it's a 60% penalty, so if you've no melee weapon equipped, and the fight lasted into melee, the stats shown at the end of the battle would show the penalty.


[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:21 AM EDT

certain about that?

yes ;)

[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:24 AM EDT

yes...i just equipped my vorpal and its true the dx went back up ;)

Shiv you're such a newb man. ;)

[SoV] Shiv [/me Forge Stuff :D] September 16 2005 5:28 AM EDT

newb me? indeed i am. and asking Qs is the way to learn :P

If you have no melee weapon you get a straight 60% dex penalty, off the top of everything.

maulaxe September 16 2005 2:21 PM EDT

do you even get the penalty during ranged?
I hope not, 'cus that would be dumb.

So then you should put a melee weapon on even if you have a mage team...

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] September 16 2005 7:01 PM EDT

no, the DX penalty only happens if you have ONLY a ranged weapon, you dont get a DD penalty for having a DD spell only
