Reply To: What is the calculation for the bonus defense for Anticipation?


It’s what you suggested above, and the “base ranged defence” doesn’t include any bonuses from shields, Dodge, confident morale or the Short trait. At least that’s what I understand/assume. Unfortunately, many of the perk bonuses aren’t very tangible in-game, so that it’s difficult to judge their worth. With Dodge you get a nice icon displaying how much bonus is currently in operation. Obviously, with Anticipation, the bonus is specific to the enemy attacking you and the position from which the attack takes place, so that there’s no static bonus that can be displayed when it’s the character’s turn.
