Mithril Shield penalty? (in General)
December 16 2007 6:53 PM EST
I hadn't noticed this before, but I have an MS on my wall with no weapon at all and am still getting the 4% skills penalty. Is this right? The wiki says that there are penalties with 1 or 2 handed weapons (including a bow because it will fire during melee) but it doesn't state that there is a skills penalty even without a weapon. Should it?
You'll always get a 4% DX/skill penalty, yes. It does state it, look again - under basic information
A MS gives -4% to Dex. Any Dex modifiers from armour also apply to skills.
There are certainly Skill penalties even without weapons, they are in addition to ranged weapon penalties.

Ok, thanks for the quick replies!
Fanta, I did look again and it's specific as to the penalties with which type of weapon you use but doesn't state that there's a penalty even if you do not have ANY weapon equipped not even a bow). Not nitpicking, I asked because I wanted a clear answer from guys who know more than me (which I got) just wanted to be clear as to why I asked in the first place.
Thanks again to all of ya.
Yeah, you're right, it doesn't specifically say...
But if you go to the wiki page "Wall Armor", it says: "Negative 4% to DX when equipped without a weapon" for shield specific penalties, where MS is the shield being used.
