 March 18, 2008, 05:44 #1 steeg1234321 Rookie   Join Date: Mar 2008 Posts: 24 Ranged Weapons, Armor and Resistances. Oh my! Three Questions... 1. Can somebody explain what the stats behind armor means? For example I've got Leather Scale Mail [11] {Average}, what does the 11 mean? And on another note if the Scale Mail was [11,-3] what would the second number mean? 2. I've got a Long Bow (x3) {Good}, what does the x3 mean? 3. When you open your character sheet with C you get your resistances and stuff right? What does the abc....jkl@ mean? Thanks in advance!

Leather Scale Mail [11] {average} is eather Scale Mail [11] (+0) is AC 11 added to your armor 2. Long bow (x3) good. The x3 is the damage multiplier. 3 x (2.5 + bow_to_dam + arrow_to_dam) The good means that bow to_dam > 0, so you will be doing a minimum of 10.5 avg dam/shot, and probably quite a bit more. 3. The alphabet is your equipment slot. The @ means intrinsic class/race bonuses.

 March 18, 2008, 06:38 #4 PeteC Rookie   Join Date: Mar 2008 Posts: 2 The abc...jkl correspond to the equipment you are wearing. They form a matrix with the possible effects they can provide. So if there is a mark in the column under the the letter c in the rows for Elec and Fire this means that you are wearing a ring on your left hand that grants you resistance to electricity and fire. If there is a mark under the @ column that means you have an innate/racial bonus. Does that help?

The -3 means that it has been damaged somehow (acid) and now provides a bonus to AC of 11 - 3 = 8 which is less than what it provides when it is at {Average} or (+0)

 March 18, 2008, 08:09 #6 Mondkalb Knight     Join Date: Apr 2007 Posts: 977 Note that the pseudo identifications like {good}, {average} and so on are "feelings" that your character gets about the item. If you are wearing anything i.e. {average} and you get hit by acid attacks, look at the messages. You probably get messages like your soft leather boots {average} is damaged. These attacks will not change the {average} pseudo IDs. It is possible that you are wearing in fact soft leather boots (+1/-2) or such, which grant no longer any protection. __________________ My Angband winners so far My FAangband efforts so far

 March 18, 2008, 18:11 #8 steeg1234321 Rookie   Join Date: Mar 2008 Posts: 24 One final question... If I saw Hard Leather Armor (-1) [6,+1] what would the (-1) mean?
 March 18, 2008, 18:36 #9 Mondkalb Knight     Join Date: Apr 2007 Posts: 977 That is a penalty to your hit value due to wearing heavy armour. The heavier the armour the higher the penalty.
