I probably got attacked around 4-6 times overall taking away one bar from my torso hp. (I have 20% less hp or around that)
Anyways something definitely needs to be changed as I shouldn’t be able to obliterate an ant hill unarmed at that low of a skill level. Plus 4-6 attacks really isn’t much. They barely tried to protect her.[/quote]
Unarmed/melee 11 isn’t “Low skill” juuuuuuuuuust so you know.[/quote]I think he meant low dodge skill. And 11 was probably his melee/unarmed after he was done with the anthill.[/quote]
No it was actually at level 11 - 10 when I started the anthill. It’s just that ants are incredibly durable so I couldn’t one-shot them or anything. not to mention dodge 2 is horrible (with that many enemies especially) Yet I still managed to kill every single and in that room with only 1 bar missing from my torso a ant soldier managed to get in. (Also I did not have any encumbrance but that’s not the point) The point is with my damage/Dodge rate with two ant queens in that one room, my character should’ve died.[/quote]
What about armor? Or lighting? Because both of those make a huge difference. Also, can anyone confirm or deny if unarmed/melee affects your “block” chance?[/quote]
I was wearing the following (All reinforced except for the neoprene arm sleeves)
Boxer shorts, eyeglasses, hard hat, army jacket, army pants, messenger bag, glove liners, socks, combat boots, and a chest rig.
Also I had a flashlight on if that counts for lighting. Plus I have the smelly trait. (Sound wise I have light step though, so only 2 sound per movement)[/quote]
You had passable head protection, light chest protection, and decent foot protection. I think ants don’t use smell to track (…or maybe it was smell? It’s one or the other) I do think that the queen should be able to ‘alert’ the soldiers if she’s attacked though, but a buff isn’t needed.
