Question about Evasion (in General)

Soxjr June 18 2009 12:41 AM EDT

Ok. I understand how if you don't have dex trained then the evasion is only 60% effect, but here is my question. Why is my junctioned evasion not showing properly. I have a 120 effect evasion ... something like 1.1 mil or so trained evasion, whatever the number is and my HaL has over 4 mil Dex. Why would the HaL evasion still be at the 60% number of 97 effect instead of the full 120 effect. Is this a known bug or something that is meant to happen? I was expecting the 97 on my minion with base dex, but my hal I expected full evasion. Thanks for checking this out.

if the minion gets the penalty, so does the familiar. sad but true!

This is just one of the remaining bugs of junction.

Oh well. For now I think I will test this out. Too bad I went from 2.8 mil mpr to 2.77 mil.. not a huge hit, but for me it hurts. I can't test that much without risking losing a month of time :(

not a bug at all, that is the way the devs wanted it.

Oh, my bad I misspoke, "A feature that doesn't make any sense."

Indeed, it seems they decided that if you don't train DX to get rid of the penalty, then the free junction minion DX doesn't get rid of it either

thanks dudemus. I never read that whole post before. So if I want full effect. I just have to re-train some dex, or just deal with the penalty. Got it. :)

find a thread made by me about mages and evasion, there is a sort of optimum in Eva / DX
