    Defense Vs. Missile

    Defense Vs. Missile

    Ok how does this modifier work? Used search options => no posts found (though their was a database crash so older posts are missing). Checked the: “the impossible journey …†on general strategy forum => nothing. I am asking this question because I have 2 rune words that have this modifier: Sanctuary (+250 Defense vs. Missile) and Stone (+300 Defense vs. Missile) :strong: . I will ask few questions (probably some are dumb :bonk:, but …)

    a. Do they stack (250 + 300 = 500)?

    b. Does it work like?

    I have base defense = 1000 and when I am under ranged attack these 250 and 300 are added in the final formula. So it will be 1550 for these attacks only?

    c. Or

    I have base defense = 1000 and when I am under ranged attack these 250 and 300 are NOT added in the final formula. So it will be 550 for these attacks only?

    d. Or maybe

    I have base defense = 1000 and when I am under ranged attack these 250 and 300 are checked after they pass my 1000 defense. So it will be 1000 checked and then check 550. Separate checking’s.

    So alainpp66, RTB, Loboleal, Shade :worship: ….. could you please ... this trivial :wink2: ?

    btw you could add this to THE mighty “the impossible journey …†thread.

    Yes, they stack.

    It works like that.

    Maybe :teeth:

    I don't know for sure, but I suspect they don't.

    I'll give it a go.

    a. Yes.

    b. Yes. Your defense against ranged attacks in the case that you base defense is 1000 and you have 250+300 defense vs missile will be 1550.

    c. N/a - see b.

    d. N/a - see b.

    e. In a way yes. say you get 50% more base defense from shout or defiance. The defense vs. missile is added after those modifications. So your base defense was 1000, add 50% from shout or defiance - thats 1500 defense. Then we add the 250+300 for a total defense against ranged attackers of 2050.

    Maybe i'll earn honourable mention on your next question.
