    KnockBack

    How does knockback work, does it have a %chance (that isn't listed) too work, and can it be improved by multiple KB (KnockBack) items/runes?

    I have a multi-shot zon (maxed), and enchant her. I recently socketed a Ch-Ku-Nu (got 5 sockets), and i'm waiting to hear if placing 5 nef runes will allow greatly increased KB chances.

    knockback doesnt ave a chance to knockback. i am almost positive that if an item has te knockback mod (usually the prefix bear) then it will always knockback, IF U HIT THE TARGET.

    A large radius monster has 25% chance of being knocked back (yetis, maulers).
    A medium radius monster has 50% chance of being knocked back (corrupted rogues, goatmen).
    A small radius monster has 100% chance of being knocked back (zombies, leapers).

    I don't recall if multiple knockback sources stack, but you can always try to test it on a mauler by 4 neffing a weapon.

    i take it the 7 classes are medium radius? eg. barb, ama etc. so in pvp with say wf you would have 50% chance of knockback?

    peace.

    I never really tested it in pvp though I expect so.
