I have a question about weapon stats, criticals specificlly.
it will say something like this for one
19-20/X2
and on others it says just
X2
what does that mean?
the number that is after the X is the multiplyer. When you score a critical hit, thats what you multiply the dice being rolled by. For example:
If you have a weapon that does 1d6 with a X2 critical, then a critical hit would let you roll 2d6.
If you have a weapon that normally does 2d6 with a X2 critical, then it would do 4d6 on a critical hit.
If it has X3, then you multiply the number of dice rolled by that. A scythe has X4 for example.
the numbers before the /X are the threat range. Normally you only threat on a 20. This meens that if you roll a 20, then you may have scored a critical hit. Roll another 20, and if you hit with your second roll then you have made a critical hit.
If there are numbers before the /X, then they are the new threat range. A 19-20 would score a threat on a 19 or a 20. It says all of this in the D&D players hand book.
Okay, thanks, I haven't layed too often, Ulf the Barbarian hasn't ever rolled a 20 up to date but I've only played 1 session so far.
Get a KEEN double-bladed scimitar with improved critical.
13 - 20/x2

I don't think you roll extra dice, you roll one die, the multiply the roll by X amount, where X is the critical number.
And note - Keen does not stack (if I recall) with imp crit/ Magic/psionics that make weapons keen.
Wrong. If x2, roll 1d6 and times that by 2.If you have a weapon that does 1d6 with a X2 critical, then a critical hit would let you roll 2d6.
If you have a weapon that normally does 2d6 with a X2 critical, then it would do 4d6 on a critical hit.
If x3, roll 1d6 times 3, etc, etc, I think you got the idea.OK, it doesn't matter. Keen weapons that get improved critical add 2 to their threat range; it doesn't double again.And note - Keen does not stack (if I recall) with imp crit/ Magic/psionics that make weapons keen.
Weapons with Improved Crit that becomes keen also add +2 to their threat range.
Either way, it's the same.
