Safe Moxie Level

I'm a level 12 accordion thief with 201 buffed moxie; I've got the detuned radio set to ten, and have buoybottoms, and the annoying pitchfork equipped for a grand total of +22 ML. The safe moxie level for this monster is listed as 177, so with my +ML I should be safe at 199; yet I have fought several tomb asps, and have been repeatedly hit with non-critical hits every time, and poisoned by it's attacks in all but one of the fights, and even three times in a single fight. It's beaten me up at least twice from full or nearly full HP (132). Even with maximum ML variance in it's favour, it shouldn't be hitting me very often at all, and certainly not beating me up. I know it could just be the RNG hating me, but every asp I have fought has hit me with non-critical hits, probably averaging at least every other round of combat. I'm thinking that either the listed ML is incorrect, or maybe this monster has been powered up a bit.--Knobula 14:43, 11 April 2008 (CDT)

  • Monster Level#Monster Level Variance. Whee, third time this has been posted in three days. --Bagatelle 17:26, 11 April 2008 (CDT)
  • To do the math for you, ML variance is enough to take a normally 199 monster to about 209, which is easily enough to smef you at 201 moxie. Even if the variance is applied before your +22 ML is, it can still get up to about 208. Still enough to own you. The moral of the story is: the safe moxie values are Averages, not maximums. --Flargen 19:52, 11 April 2008 (CDT)
