From DQWiki

## Contents

### Current Rules (2014)

#### 57.1 Strike Chance Modifiers Summary

**Close Combat Modifiers**

+1 each point attacker’s PS is greater than target’s PS -1 each point target’s PS is greater than attacker’s PS

### Proposed

#### 57.1 Strike Chance Modifiers Summary

**Close Combat Modifiers**

+1 SC each point attacker’s PS +1 Def each point target’s PS

### Rationale

Net effective numbers are the same but the effects of PS can now be pre-calculated. One less calculation on the fly. GM does not need to reveal exact PS of NPCs.
