I looked up the Attacks Spo, and according to it, my SWI is 11+ (205/15), and therefore I should be getting 6 extra blows at 18/120 dex. But I must only be getting 5, as the +2 is bringing me to 7. Unless 7 is an artificial cap? Any help would be appreciated EDIT: Bloody hell - this is a lucky game (I mean, I think that weapon I mentioned above is rather good). Just after I posted that, went down a level, got an 'Excellent' feeling, and found one small vault. Cleared the level, thought 'Meh, not really worth the Excellent' and activated my rod of recall. Walked a few steps, and just before I vanished, I realised there was a Small Metal Shield in the room below me that I hadn't been in yet. Went in, and yep - It was Thorin! At 2500ft! Nicely replacing my +10 Shield of Deflection that I've had for the last 2000 levels. And to think I almost missed it... Eep. ________ oxygen vaporizer Last edited by Conker; January 21, 2011 at 00:35.

Consulting tables.c * 18/205 STR looks up as 220 from adj_str_blow * 18/120 DEX looks up as 8 from adj_dex_blow * as a warrior, multiplier is 5: 220*5 = 1100 * divide by ten times maximum of 3.0 lbs and weapon weight 15.0 lbs: 1100/150 = 7.333, truncate to 7 by integer math So...only 5 blows before extra attacks cuts in. Abstract of further lookups: At your current STR, you will need 18/150 DEX to get 6 blows before extra attacks. 18/220 STR reduces this requirement to 18/140 DEX.

Guess the spoiler I looked at was out of date (serves me right for using Google to get straight to it). Now to find more Dex... ________ magic flight launch box review Last edited by Conker; January 21, 2011 at 00:35.
