Information about, if the torch counts as weapon or shield would be good. 220.127.116.11
The following section looks abnormal.
71,25 with a shield (Spellbreaker).
So that shield deals over 7,000 damage when power bashing ?
I suspect that its meant to be "71.25 with a shield (Spellbreaker)."
As an anon I'm not editing that in case I'm wrong but if someone else whats to double check that and fix it if required then there should be less confusion on this topic. — Unsigned comment by 18.104.22.168 (talk) at 08:19 on 14 November 2017
- Most countries use a comma for decimals (and a period for thousands), but British and Americanized systems are the other way. As we are Americanized it should be and now is a period. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 14:55, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
- I'm not entirely sure myself, but looking around the talk page, I can see a couple of potentially relevant discussions here and here. The one thing that strikes me, looking at the numbers, is that fBlockMax is set to 0.7, which would mean you take 30% damage. If there's some other factor that cuts damage in half, that would end up being 15% which, going backwards, translates to 85% damage reduction. That's just a guess though. It might be worth poking around in the console and experimenting to see if these numbers that we've had up for years are, in fact, correct! – Robin Hood (talk) 17:07, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
- The number seems to be user-based, but correct. There are some testing results on forums and such, one linked from the Fortify Block talk page, as well as your own testing Robin that show a maximum reduction of around 85%. That number is a common one used by Bethesda in ES and Fallout, so it appears to be correct, even if it isn't written down anywhere. The Fortify Block page, however, lists a value of 80%, unless that's a different number. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 18:32, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
