How exactly is a saving throw is triggered

GreenerGreener Member Posts: 385
I'm curious how exactly a saving throw is triggered

For example...

Equipped abilities:
- Causes the wielder to go berserk (save vs spell)

Would this be triggered once the first item is equipped or would it be triggered each time the wielder enters a battle?

    I think that it depends on the effect... I'm not sure in this case. Isn't there a cursed two handed sword that does something like this? I think that it only triggers in combat, but I'm not sure how the effect is set up in the itm file. Different configurations might act differently

    I can't say for certain without having access to the source code. But from what I've seen so far I'd say that a save check is triggered only when the effect opcode is applied to the target. If it's a "while equipped" type of effect then the check is triggered whenever you equip or re-equip the item regardless of when the effect actually becomes apparent to the player (such as in the case of Berserk).

    Thank you

    Perhaps than modifying it from an equipped ability to a combat ability may trigger ongoing saving throws?
