    ITD question

    Quick question peeps...

    With ITD items, am I right in thinking it's doesn't matter how much (low) your AR is; you'll still hit the target 95% of the time?

    Actually two questions..

    Does ITD work on act bosses?

    Thanks

    P.S
    If you don't understand the first Q, i'll go into a little more detail... :scratch:

    ITD sets the defense of the monster to 0, so the only thing that matters when calculating to-hit is your level and the monsters level.

    ITD does not work on act bosses

    It depends on attacker's level and defender's level.
    Chance to hit formula is this:
    CTH = 100*AR / (AR+DR) * 2*AL / (AL+DL)

    AR = Attacker's Attack Rating
    DR = Defender's Defense Rating
    AL = Attacker's Level
    DL = Defender's Level


    With ITD: DR = 0. Objective: 95% CTH

    95 = 100*AR / (AR+0) * 2*AL / (AL+DL)
    95 = 200*AL / (AL+DL)
    ... after some calculation ...
    105/95 * AL = DL
    so if AL is not smaller than 0.9 times DL, your CTH will be 95% no matter how low were your AR.



    No, it doesn't work on Act Bosses and Superuniques.

    As far as I know, however, ETH runes do work on bosses. So theoretically you could socket a weapon with 4 ETH runes which is -100% defense... there you go, boss ITD.

    Except that -% defense is halved against bosses and players. You'd need 8 Eths to get ITD against bosses.

    ITD doesn't work against champions and unique monsters either.
