How to tell difference between weapon dmg?

Postby denna39 » Tue Mar 15, 2011 6:17 pm

I'm totally new to MUDs, btw.

I'm wandering around Scarsdale. My dwarf (Fumoc) started with a spiked battleaxe. I bought a warhammer and found a bone dagger lying about (prob. cuz no one could sell it).

I remove and wield those 3 different weapons and my attributes still read the same: Hitroll: 4, Damroll: 6. Really? A battleaxe, warhammer, and dagger all do the same damage?

Can anyone shed light on how I tell which ones are more powerful...or indeed how I tell anything about the differences between weapons besides their name? How are Hitroll and Damroll determined?

I see the Weapon Shop sells a flail for 1 plat + change....if I equipped that, would I still be Hit 4, Dam 6?

Anything anyone can tell me would be appreciated....Thanks folks!!!

Kegor will be able to tell you the damage dice 'tell kegor stat spiked battle-ax' and he will repeat the weapon stats. The hit is based on a modifier put on the weapon by the creator same with the dam. You won find alot of. Change in the weapons in scardale. I'll be on tonight and I'll toss you some toys to play with if your around.
