Stun


This section is an ongoing test. There are so many factors involved that it will require a large number of tests before any real conclusion can be developed.

Thus far, it seems that:
  • Monsters appear to have their own unique stun resistances, probably as a result of having their own CON. This probably also applies to summons, except it is a fact that summons do not have stat growth in the same sense as players' characters do.
The currently believed factors that determine whether a stun lands or not are:
  • CON of the target
  • level of the target
  • level the stun skill being used was obtained at
  • any buffs, armor, or natural resistance the target may have

Test 1: Stun on Monsters

The goal of this test was to discover whether or not all monsters, barring those with "Resist Shock", had the same stun resistance or not. If it proved true, I would then be able to measure the rates of various stuns simply by trying it on monsters of a specific level.

By removing CON as an issue, it would be much, much easier to determine how stun works specifically, then apply CON later once the other parts were known.

The skill used for this test was Soul Breaker on a level 66/67 Tyrant versus level 65 and 66 monsters.

First try:

I leveled up during the initial test, so 30 tries was all I was able to obtain at first.

Second try:

2810028.0%296766Bone MakerHumanoidnone
4110041.0%296766Bone SnatcherHumanoidnone

At this point it seems obvious that Bone Makers resist stun more than Bone Snatchers, so this test was concluded. Monsters do indeed seem to have their own individual stun resistances. This test also showed that classification type (humanoid, undead, etc) has nothing to do with the resistance of the monster. I doubt I'll do any more testing against monsters - the tests will have to be done with the CON of the target already known.
