AoI minus to hit and enchantment value (in General)

iBananco [Blue Army] May 26 2008 3:58 PM EDT

Does the AoI minus to hit bonus actually depend on the enchantment value or is it a flat 20?

Secondary effect: The AoI gives a flat negative 20 Points-To-Hit

The issue is that that line may have gotten there by ignoring naming boost, which is what I assume JS is wanting to know :P Is there finally a piece of equipment that naming does not help? And why can't he DE his AoI? Why can't I get a +11 AoI?

From the changelog:

BTW, the +10 on the AoI is just so the PR effect works out the way I want... it's equivalent to +20 DB in its effect on PTH.

so does that mean Naming doesn't affect AoI?

We do see our total evasion.

Anyone have a named AOI they can tell us about?

iBananco [Blue Army] May 26 2008 6:01 PM EDT

AoIs don't show up on total evasion.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] May 26 2008 6:48 PM EDT

AoI doesn't show in evasion because it doesn't work that way at all.
The excess PTH doesn't cut into dex based CTH, unlike db's or evasion, as far as I know it

Where on earth are you getting this?

TheHatchetman May 26 2008 7:32 PM EDT

it doesn't add to defensive DX like only evasion does, but the direct -20 CTH will cut into DX if the weapon has already been reduced to +0

TheHatchetman May 26 2008 7:32 PM EDT

and by "cut into DX" I mean "cut into DX-based CTH"

lostling May 26 2008 7:35 PM EDT

from my understanding AOI just takes -20 PTH/CTH off the final number of CTH + PTH left

TheHatchetman May 26 2008 7:38 PM EDT

your understanding is correct, as far as any testing has been able to show... the naming is the question there :P It would appear from Lammy's postings that naming does nothing. Due to the margin of change being a maximum of another -2 to CTH, that is extremely difficult to test for.
