Dex Question

Post by redbird97 on Sat Aug 13, 2016 10:01 pm

I have not noticed any real difference between a 36 dex and a 33 dex on SSR my lvl 384+ Scavie. This includes boxing as well as leading. I decided to go with Gloves of Silence over WFG  for that reason. I cannot afford to carry the GoS loose as they will surely be stolen when I run 13 and 14. I experimented with WFG carrying Thief's Gloves. I lost three sets. Could someone look into this and give us a definitive answer. If it turns out dex has little or no impact on leading, being surprised, or boxing, then the player will "know what to do."
Thanks

Hugh

Just to add more information:I spent most of the day running 7 to build up my Ninja. I would like to know why a lvl 385 Scavie with a 36 dex is only + on trapped boxes on that lvl. Thanks

There has been some work done on this recently.  

First off, with your 36 vs 33 dex, you should be seeing about 5% better boxing across the board with the current boxing formula.  Noticeable?  Maybe not, especially since the displays for boxing accuracy (++, +, etc.) are quite coarse.  

Regarding the 'why' regarding boxing performance of your scavenger--we need to improve the progression formula.  We don't know what the original formula is/was, and no one is sharing that information with us.  Unfortunately, we have to get there by trial and error.  I'm not trying to actively nerf scavengers--I'm trying to guesstimate a formula and parameters for boxing.  It's probably too lean for mid level scavengers at the moment, based on the two pieces of feedback I have thus far.  I'll be changing the formula soon--say tuned.

Okay thanks for the response. I should be ++ on 7 at level 385 with a 36 dex. I look forward to seeing the changes.

Jude,

Thanks for the effort! With some feedback and tweaks you will get it there I am sure.

Cudo's to someone. I came back in the game tonight and once again on 7 with my Ninja, my Scavie went from + to ++ on trapped boxes. Will report more as I go deeper. Thanks.

Ran 14 for a spell last night. On lvl 14 traps I was getting two bars and a plus minus. That means the char doesn't have a clue. Lvl 386 36 Dex Scavie.
