Topic: Why do charging orcs only stun their target some times?

    When I first started I don’t think I ever saw an orc fail to stun their target when charging. Lately though I’ve been seeing quite a few battle brothers getting charged and somehow avoiding being stunned, I’d like to know why and if there’s something I can do to help avoid being stunned.

    Do charging orcs just have a fixed chance to stun the target, like 75% per charge?

    Does the stun part of the charge attack have a chance to hit, and by having high melee defense you increase you chance of avoiding being stunned?

    Or am I just seeing a bug and charges should always result in a stun?

    To me it seems to work like the stun of a mace. (if you hit you have a 75% chance to stun)
    The only difference seems to be, that the charge never misses. The stun still can.

    Please correct me if I´m wrong.

    "OK, OK! Then I´m a wrecked down minstrel drunkard pretending to be a paladin, singing so wrong in the midst of battle that even the undead run in fear... Better?!"

    The orc charge has a high chance to stun, but it can be lowered by equipping a good shield and further lowered by using the shieldwall skill prior to impact.

    Thanks for confirming that! That’s great to know.
