Melee Combat

This includes the combat skills not including missile combat.

A player must be in melee range (adjacent tile) to use these skills.

DPS (Damage per second) = Melee Damage * Character's Attack Speed * Chance to hit (WC/AC)

Character's Melee Damage

The formula for calculating a character's damage is:

Melee Damage = (Character level - 1)/4 + Str damage bonus + (1 + combat skill level/9) + damage from each item
if((Player level - 1 /4) + Str damage bonus)<1, then = 1 (for very low level characters with very little Str)
Total Damage = Melee Damage / 2

This is due to each attack being randomly rolled from 1 - Melee Damage (e.g. 14 damage = random(1, 14))

For example, a level 20 character with level 10 one hand weapon skill and 20 Str using a steel long sword (dam 8) =

Character's melee damage = ((20 - 1)/4 + 3 + (1 + 10/9) + 8)/2
Character's melee damage = (4/4 + 3 + (1 + 1) + 8)/2
Character's melee damage = 7

Character's Attack Speed

A character's attack speed in combat is used to calculate the rate of attacks a player makes. It is based on the dex bonus and the total character load based on Carrying_load and total load being carried. The minimum weapon speed for a character is 0.05.

 Characters Attack Speed (attacks per second) = ((1 + Dex Bonus) - (Weapon Speed / 20.0) + (Speed Bonus / 10.0) - ((Player's Current Carried Load/Player's Maximum Carry Capacity) x 0.2)) x 8.5 (server tick rate)

For example a weapon with weapon speed 8 on a character with 20 Dex and who carrying %50 of capacity load with no +speed =

 Characters Attack Speed (attacks per second) = ((1 + 1.5) - (8 / 20.0) + (0 / 10.0) - ((0.5 x 0.2)) x 8.33 (server tick rate)
 Characters Attack Speed (attacks per second) = (2.5 - 0.4 + 0 - .1) x 8.33 (server tick rate)
 Characters Attack Speed (attacks per second) = 16.66

Dex Bonus

The improvement given by a players Dex to their attack speed (Dex bonus) is:

Weapon comparison

Factoring these equations together we can derive weapon comparison table below (ignoring AC/WC). The columns represent a character at 10, 20 and 30 Dex respectively whilst for each item, the @ number represents the character level (and associated combat skill level) and Str. All characters have +10 to damage off weapon (Girdle of Damage).

Character's Chance to Hit

FIXME

Chance to hit = Player's WC/Opponents AC * constant
