Double hits with DX - no guarantee? (in General)
<Jonathan> if you have two naked minions you can guarantee 2 hits with a big enough dx advantage
We have been discussing in chat the methods of getting multiple strikes. It is a theory that DX alone will not guarantee a double hit, and that to do so requires about a +29 weapon. We were discussing this in chat, when Jon corrected us with the above statement. So, we en devoured to find the real story.
My character has a minion with no Evasion. I put "Ember" out front, removed all Elven gear, and was left with nothing but a Corn and 18 DX. Yukk has a powerful char with over 700k DX, and he equipped a +1 katana. The result is that in round 2 of melee, he got a single hit on Ember:
Our contention is not that double hits are impossible without PTH -- that's obviously wrong. The contention is that single hits are *possible* with a massive DX advantage and small PTH (under +29 for a 1H weapon).
I've been seeing additional penalties to hit for a while...nice to have someone do the hard work.

throw in a base EC to put their DX to zero :)
in hitting the char SmallsNCB
I hit the minions Wall for 19 rounds with a base Tulwar (REPRESENT YO)
6 of those rounds, with 3 million dex (or there abouts) I got single hits...
Chance to hit is bugged, or is this the 1 handed weapon vrs two handed weapon thing?

I really should just quit while I'm behind...
You can guarantee one hit an a chance of a 2nd with dx alone, but never 100% chance of 2.
trifeca completed, hit the showers Jon...

Jade Empire? Now we know where Jon gets his inspiration for CB updates!
"You can guarantee one hit an a chance of a 2nd with dx alone, but never 100% chance of 2. "
Ah, good. This is exactly what we put into the wiki -- for the second hit, your chance of hitting will only get to 66% from DX alone (+ some 5%). The rest has to come from PTH.
