Anyone figured out what does luck / charisma affects exactly?



  • To me it feels like there's no noticeable difference between a 6CHA and a 18CHA toon.

    @Razvan I read that it affects your rolls... so more likely to evade or block, hit for more damage etc..

    So charisma is basically for supporters (Leadership, whatever it does) pet users and traders

    Luck on other hand "biases chances" - rolls : saves (sucessfully saving against spell aka second line of saves), chance to hit / land CC (secondary line of accuracy) and damage rolls (20-50 dmg weapon deals 50 dmg more often). Formula is like this:

    Also natural 20 CHA increases multiplier of luck by 60%

    Its weird to see no difference in survivability and offensive powers with such gap, maybe it was not fully integrated to game yet.

    Hmmm, I seem to have an idea of how to create Rincewind from Discworld.

    I am looking at the wiki and the listed calculation is this:

    Am I missing something or what? I made another toon with 610luck and 23% crit chance. According to the formula above,
    triangle_sign = Chance - Chance * (1+ Luck/1000) = 0.23 - 0.23 * (1 + 610/1000) = -0.14
    Biased Chance = Chance + triangle_sign = 0.23 + (-0.14) = 0.09


    edit:
    @GorTavaro @kellewic
    After a quick thought, maybe the formula is actually

    this way, with my previous data,

    triangle_sign = 0.23 - 0.23 * (1 - 0.61) = 0.23 * ( 1 - 1 + 0.61) = 0.23 * 0.61 = 0.14
    Biased Chance = 0.23 + 0.14 = 0.37


    So basically, without taking in account other luck bonuses (from talents and items)
    6CHA = 0.9x actual chance (23% -> 20.7%)
    19CHA = 1.225x actual chance (23% -> 28.2%)
    20CHA = 1.45x actual chance (23% -> 33.4%)

    I think it's WAY MORE intuitive to show that the actual critical chance in this case is 37%, instead of showing 23% crit chance and 610 luck.

    @Razvan the formula is

    delta = Chance - Chance ^ (1 + Luck/1000)

    might be a little hard to see it's an exponent but it is superscript to Chance.



  • @kellewic
    Thank you! It makes much more sense now.


    For anyone interested, I added a tabel of how chances scale with -100 to 1000 luck.
