Resist Mechanics Confirmed

On a [GM Note], GM Dominiel confirms the formula for effect resistance in a new post:

When the attacker attempts to inflict a debuff on a target, the following calculation determines whether or not it is successful: Chance of inflicting debuff = Chance of attempting debuff x (1 + Attacker's Effectiveness - Target's Effect Resistance). However, the chance of inflicting a debuff cannot exceed 85%.

This information is clarified below:

When the attacker attempts to inflict a debuff on a target, the following process determines whether or not it is successful: 1. Effect chance determines whether or not a debuff is attempted. 
If not attempted, no text will display.
2. If a debuff is attempted, its success is determined through the following calculation: 100% + Attacker's Effectiveness - Target's Effect Resistance. Value cannot exceed 85%. If the attempt fails, the text "Resistance" will display.

These clarifications will be added to the in-game Help Guide.  To see the original post, click the button below!
