Questioning EC (in General)


Underage Drinking July 16 2012 6:11 PM EDT

To start off I understand trained Dexterity offers no Encumbrance, am I right? Regardless, Ive notice in fights versus the Exbow and Axbow when I get a negative trained ST or DX I suffer no AC penalty. Yet when I get blasted by EC into the negatives I suffer an AC penalty. Why?

Enc is only affected by most pre-combat effects (A.S. excluded) but no in-combat effects.

EC is calculated pre battle, *xBow is calculated during. Thus you get the Enc before the fight actually starts.
