Displacement Boots and Evasion (in General)

Will [Retired] September 22 2005 4:45 AM EDT

Its my understanding that when put together, DBs and evasion don't stack linearly.

Currently I have an Evasion: 45,850/35,000 (28). If I were to put some +100 DBs on the evasion probably wouldn't go above (100). Is this true?
Or, would the evasion intersect at 100 [from the DBs] with the evasion from experience squashing on top of that [Giving a total effect of, lets say (105) for example]?

On the other hand a set of +100 DBs would always give you +100 evasion without the skill trained....?

Yup, it's the first way. Like enchantment stacking. Evasion sucks when used with large DBs

DBs are so much easier to get to large values than training the skill, so really, the Evasion skill sucks.

How about when used with UC. Does the UC evasion stack with DB's linearly?

is gains 2/3 level of evasion in ranged and 1/3 in melee.

I understand how the UC evasion bonus works, but how does it work with Evasion Boots?

Lol. Displacement Boots.

Don't know. I'd assume, that the Evasion granted by UC (1/3 it's level before Gi/HG) is classed as skill evasion.

Thereofer it wouldn't stack well with DB s.

It also wouldn't stack well with the Evasion granted by the Gi istelf, which I'd assume was item based Evasion...

Since the Gi grants (assuming) item based evasion, I would think that it stacks with the DB's linearly. Since none of this can actually be measured in-game, it would be great if this was cleared up by Jonathan and then we could add it to the Wiki.

If the Gi is item based it would stack linearly with DB s. This combined total would then not stack well with any evasion from the skill itself or UC.

If the Gi Evasion was made to be skill based evasion, so it would stack linearly with the evasion granted by UC (otherwise, it's not really of much benefit...) then it wouldn't stack with DB s.


I can't shed any light on this though.

a combat gi gives a 1/3 evasion effect of your trained UC. that means the evasion you get would be skill and hence would not stack linearly with the evasion granted by any displacement boots you were wearing at the time.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 22 2005 6:19 PM EDT

Why are you assuming the Evasion granted by an Item (even though it's based off of how high a trained skill is) be Skill based evasion and not Item based evasion?

Will [Retired] September 22 2005 6:22 PM EDT

im just going off what it says in the wiki. 'a gi gives an evasion bonus equal to 1/3of your UC skill' or something to that effect. correct me if im wrong mate!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 22 2005 6:25 PM EDT

No, that's right! The Gi gives Evasion equal to the same amount given by your UC skill (1/3 it's level).

But what's unknow is whether the Gi portion is skill or item based evasion.

Maybe Jon would answer this?
