Progressive Poison Curing

  • Each consecutive failed attempt at curing poison now increases chance of the next attempt by 100% (previously was 50%) of the base cure chance (before factoring in adjustments for Poison Skill, Taste ID, or Other Player Effects)

Example of curing Deadly Poison created by a player with GM Poisoning Skill and GM Taste ID:

Base attempt to cure Deadly Poison via Greater Cure Potion or GM Magery is 50% chance
If they fail their cure attempt, their next attempt will receive a flat 50% bonus
Poisons created with GM Poisoning and GM Taste ID have their cure chance reduced by a scalar of 50% (i.e. 50% base cure chance becomes 25% cure chance)

Player’s 1st Cure Attempt = 25% Cure Chance
Player’s 2nd Cure Attempt = 75% Cure Chance
Player’s 3rd Cure Attempt = 125% Cure Chance

Example of curing Lethal Poison created by a player with 120 Poisoning Skill and 120 Taste ID:

Base attempt to cure Lethal Poison via Greater Cure Potion or GM Magery is 25% chance
If they fail their cure attempt, their next attempt will receive a flat 25% bonus
Poisons created with 120 Poisoning and 120 Taste ID have their cure chance reduced by a scalar of 60% (i.e. 25% base cure chance becomes 10% cure chance)

Player’s 1st Cure Attempt = 10% Cure Chance
Player’s 2nd Cure Attempt = 35% Cure Chance
Player’s 3rd Cure Attempt = 60% Cure Chance
Player’s 4th Cure Attempt = 85% Cure Chance
Player’s 5th Cure Attempt = 110% Cure Chance
