glancing is 70% and 5 weapon skill gives 15% extra so in turn +10 weapon skill makes for the 100% of glancing damage.

When I past looked into Glancings, I stumbled upon two formulas that were not agreeing. One was saying that it is indeed +3% damage from weapon skill (as you are saying) and another one that said that the damage increased was not linear.

The damage increase would not be capped at 310 wep skill, but any points after 310 was not increasing damage significantly to make it a good choice of itemization.

Anyway I can't seem to find the source for my second claim and I guess it doesn't matter, as long as we know how it's working here. Are we sure it's +3%damage per weapon skill (I mean, has someone done proper testing etc?).

Also hitcap decreases with weapon skill ?

28% no weapon skill / 26% +5 weapon skill / 25% +10 weapon skill (Dual Wield)

9% no weapon skill / 6% +5 weaponskill / 6% +5weapon skill (1H)

From my understand, +1 weapon skill gives 0,04% hit&crit aswell as -0,04% chance to be parried/dodge but I fail to see how it lowers the hitcap by 3% for the first 5 weaponskill.

Is that correct and is there any reliable sources ?

Thanks in advance for your enlightment.

Cheers

There are supposed to be two different formulae used for determining your hit cap. One where the difference between your target's defense and your weapon skill is less than or equal to 10, and one where the difference is greater than 10.

Less than 10 or equal:

5% + (Defense Skill - Weapon Skill)*.1%

dual-wielding: 24% + (Defense Skill - Weapon Skill)*.1%

Greater than 10:

7% + (Defense Skill - Weapon Skill - 10)*.4%

dual-wielding: 26% + (Defense Skill - Weapon Skill - 10)*.4%

Here is a pastebin that goes pretty in-depth about glances.
