Anyone know where I can find the ranged penalties? (in General)

For ranged combat only not for DD.

You're probably looking for this?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 5 2009 6:34 PM EDT

No, I'm looking for the penalties for ranged combat, not for switching weapons during combat.

40% damage penalty.

Not sure about the to hit.

That is across the board JS, everything got lowered by 40%, not exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for the damage/CTH penalties for ranged like the penalties for DD

Jon never gave the exact penalties.

He only stated that they were there in the early missile rounds.

It is one of the few things we have not get figured out.

how about this?

I'm pretty sure there aren't any other ranged damage penalties to Bows besides the 40% number. The thread I would've posted is the one that JS posted.

For damage cube is correct. Jon never stated the pth penalty from what research I've done. SoD has a huge first round penalty, and bows not to bad. After that they slowly get better, 4th and 5th round have no penalty.

The damage is across the board and is not ranged specific Artemis. So no that is not the ranged penalty I'm looking for.

What you are saying is that there is a CTH penalty, now where can I find it?

Please read my post.

Jon stated there were penalties but never stated their exact amount.

QBRanger September 6 2009 2:15 PM EDT

This is the best post I can find with Jon typing about such penalties:

QBRanger September 6 2009 2:18 PM EDT

And for my 3rd trick, from that changelog here are the key points:

Bows (with maxed out archery) now have 90% base to-hit in the 3rd round of ranged combat, except the ELB which has 100% to-hit. Odds are still slightly lower in 1st and 2nd rounds.

Slings and xbows also have slightly greater penalty to to-hit during 1st and 2nd rounds of ranged (but not 3rd round).

Now, this was before ranged went from 3 to 5 rounds.

So it is assumed the penalties are for rounds 1 and 2 of missile. However I am not sure if these extend to rounds 3 or 4 due to the increased number of rounds.

The above is if your not using the HoC.

The HoC round is in the beginning so if you use the HoC, you have 3 rounds of penalties as the HoC occurs first. I am unsure if it extends to then rounds 4 or 5.

Round 6 of missile, using the HoC is a normal BTH round.
