Enchanting through servers

Post by malice » Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:52 am

Given that NWN random has issues, are the scripts on surface and cordor server the same?
I noticed that even if not guarantee, if I have enough piety godsave is likely going to happen when I enchant on surface server.
Cordor server seems to be the bane of enchanters (at least to me!). Godsave is way less likely to happen and the few times it did was to save me from... 95% failures (salt to injury).
Just my bad omen with Cordor or anyone else noticed this?

I haven't had a godsave while enchanting in YEARS!

The servers use the same enchanting script. You're as likely (or unlikely) to get an enchanting godsave on both.

They do have different seeds...

The RNG in NWN is random... but it's also randomly good and randomly bad...

Just perception. Most of my enchanting is done on Cities.

Recently, I did a first time success ring (soft 5%), then failed 11 times at the next one (11% this time) then succeed in one attempt on the third one (11%)--also, a funny note, I failed 4 times with 95% in 33 attempts at it (three +2 skills to start each time). The 11-time failure was at three different times too.

When I had my Drow Enchanter, I obviously did all my enchanting on Cities and Planes.....he succeeded more then failed.
