This thread start without any explanation so i don't understand it...

You guys should refrain from using information from old wikis and forum posts, they can be wildly innacurate and were based on the Blizzard servers.

Especially concerning the melee calculations, there never was any blue post detailing all the formulas like casters had. All the numbers you see are the result of hitting stuff thousands of times and recording the data.

We're on a private server based on an open source emulator, we can look at the code and find out the exact mechanics for everything, and when in doubt we can ask the Kronos devs if they modified them.

Since Kronos strives to provide mechanics very close to what the official servers were back in 2006, using the old wikis and forum posts might in fact be your best shot for finding relevant information. But you are also right that there was lots of nonsense posted back then, which is why you should crosscheck your findings with other sources if possible.

Either way, its very possible that the devs changed it to Baeza's formula, who edited wowwiki back in the day and some people believe was a Blizzard dev or had inside knowledge.

I don't think anyone even got close to gathering the necessary data to draw any accurate conclusions (hundreds of thousands of hits).

I'm sure that doing tests was the only way to tell how stuff works, unless a CM actually popped in and told people how stuff works. Usually these kinds of posts are archived.

Warrior and Rogue threads are the ones you have to check for proper info if you want to solve this. I'm lazy to search for relevant topics today.

Hey Psojed,

I wanted to ask you if you have any info about the exact hit chance (or miss chance) formula for melee (not dual wielding).

I found a formula on an old Peenix post, but i'm not sure if it is right, or if it is the way it is calculated here on Kronos. The formula is:

"If the difference between the mob's Defense Skill and your Weapon Skill is less than or equal to 10 then the formula for calculating your base miss rate against that mob is:

If the difference between the mob's Defense Skill and your Weapon Skill is greater than 10, then the formula for calculating your base miss rate against that mob is:

Is it the same info you have? Because I can't find anything about hit caps on your main post of this thread.

Thank you!
