New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
Hello guys ! I am currently new to the game and I have problems to understand the combat logs. I tried to find info on the internet but every single person says different things in different years in the past so I guess things have changed with the new patches and so I decided to ask here what the logs actually show with the current patch on BG EE only. Ill give you an example. So my MC has base thac0 20, Str Mod -2, Str Extra Mod -1, Proficiencies +5/ guees that's a pentaly ?/, AC base 10 and Dext mod -4/ so its AC 6 in the end/, using simple staff as a weapon. The combat log vs a random enemy looks like:
MC : atack roll 10 - 2 = 8 miss; 19 - 2 = 17 hit !
The Enemy: atack roll 5 - 3 = 2 miss; 16 - 3 = 13 miss
So what I dont understand is what are -2 and -3 and why 8 is a miss, 17 is a hit / 2 and 13 are miss
I would appreciate If anyone can explain these to me. Thanks in advance !
