Weapon Generation Edit

Weapon generation follows three steps:

  1. two weapons are created, their type being randomly and independently selected from the table at Weapon/probabilities,
  2. each weapon is randomized according to its type:
    1. a melee weapon has its level randomized following the table at Weapon/random, then acquires an enchantment with a 1/(level+10) probability, following the table at Enchantment/probabilities,
    2. a missile weapon has its quantity randomized,
  3. the weapon which required strength is closest to 10 + numberOfGeneratedPotionsOfStrength (theoretical Hero/ine strength, except for Warriors) is selected and dropped on the floor (75 %), put in an unlocked chest (20 %) or hidden in skeletal remains (5 %).

Melee weapon damage Edit

A Melee weapon has its damage values uniformly distributed between a minimum and maximum hit values. These values can be calculated as:

  • minHit = tier + level
  • maxHit = (tier2 - tier + 10) × delay / accuracy + tier × level
  • averageHit = (minHit + maxHit) / 2
Example

A +6 War hammer is tier 5 with delay 1 and accuracy 1.2:

  • minHit = 5 + 6 = 11
  • maxHit = (52 - 5 + 10) × 1 / 1.2 + 5 × 6 = 55
  • averageHit = (11 + 55) / 2 = 33

Melee weapon required strength Edit

The Strength that a Hero/ine must have to wield a weapon without a strength penalty/bonus in calculated as:

requiredStrength = 8 + 2 × Weapon.tier - Weapon.level
Example

A +4 Mace’s required strength is:

8 + 2 × 3 - 4 = 10

This is the chance that upgrading an enchanted weapon with a scroll of upgrade will destroy that enchantment:

Chance of Destruction = CoD = (L - 1)/L, where L = Weapon Level
