DD Questions

Post#1 » Mon Nov 16, 2020 2:04 pm

Three Questions here:

1) Does Epic Confluence count as an extra D20 for shield bash?

2) How does the math work/stack on Shield Bash DMG bonus (+25 Tower Shield, +25 Pulverize, +20 dd set shield)

3) How does DR Stack (DD, feat, Set items) and does DR work on spell dmg?

Thank you Devs for all the work you do!

Only Brumm can definitively answer #1 and #2, as he did the programming. The numbers for bash are variable, and it would take a lot of testing to determine if there was an extra d20, or if taking both Pulverize and a tower shield added +50% (additive) or +56% (multiplicative).

For #3, DR stacking is a bit of a mess, but is detailed in the nwn2wiki. It works vs spells that do physical damage, like Creeping Doom, but does nothing vs non-physical damage spells.

Your Epic Relevel just determines the dice cap of Shield Bash but Epic Confluence is taken into account for that. So Epic Confluence does not increase your damage directly but raises the cap for the maximum dices which are determined by your STR mod. This cap feels a bit artificial but was implemented to scale the damage back on lower levels to prevent one-shotting everything.

All percent modifiers are added together and are applied afterwards. So in your example your base damage gets increased yb 70%.

DR is meant to be just physical DR as far as I know. At least that is how it works in NWN2 like KC pointed out. DR from different sources is not supposed to stack.
