Hit percentage


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Hit percentage

'Ello folks

Im playing trunk just now and noticed that when I aim a spell at a mob I get a little 'hit (%%)' note. Pretty sure this is new since I didnt notice it before, but cant seem to find a changelog around.

Now this is handy, I like it. But in my mind it makes most sense for bolt spells, I'm aiming Pain. Is this number now showing me the chance I have to beat his warding roll? I.e if I have hit(85%) then the monster has 15% chance to resist?

Re: Hit percentage

Good stuff, thanks for the link, i'll have to have a dig around in the commits more often.

Im liking the change for what its worth. Mainly because I'm too lazy to lookup monsters I meet. (Though I learned from that link above that monster MR is displayed in 'describe' now. More awesomeness!)

Re: Hit percentage

My recent run is an enchanter and although I like the percentage it is misleading at times.

There are monsters who are immune to effects, either because of their innate nature (eg. EH on a undead) or your god interfering (enslavement on fire drake while worshiping Dith), but still show a non-zero value on targeting.

The latter is understandable as in some cases it will leak information concerning spell sets but overall it's giving the wrong message.

This isn't entirely new; a similar issue was brought up before by and into

Oh wow, I never even thought of how that enslavement restriction interacts with multi-book monsters. Just when I thought I couldn't hate it more.
What happens if you enslave a monster that has a wand of draining/fire? Or wielding/wearing a disliked item in general? Seems inconsistent to block monsters with disliked spells/abilities and not those.
