Elona Wiki

Most equipment are randomly generated and can have almost any combination of attributes. A few, such as damage and hit bonus, can be changed through special means of changing the material. Some materials intrinsically grant resistances or bonus to stats that can be lost when changing the material. The other attributes are locked after the item is generated. Some are rare or may only be found on artifacts. Some will only appear on certain equipment types.

Numbers signs (up to [#####+]) sometimes appears next to the attribute. This represents how potent it is, and/or how often it occurs.

Any immunities to certain status effects which have been granted by equipment will be listed on the last page of "Feats and Traits" section of the character sheet (accessed with the F key).

Each randomly generated attribute also has a rank associated with it (-1 to 3, or 99), which describes how often and how many different attributes of that rank will appear on one item. Ranks 0-3 are somewhat standard enchantments, while rank -1 denotes a curse attribute and rank 99 attributes tend to be rare or especially powerful. Note that certain attributes only appear on certain equipment types.

-No more than one rank 99 attribute will randomly generate on an item (including living weapons), except on Eternal force weapons, which can be generated with two. (grenade's invoke grenade does not count toward the limit)

-Living weapon level-ups and the black cat's lick ability can only add rank 0-3 attributes.

-Certain enchantments (+stat/skill/resistance, etc) have a random chance of multiplying their magnitude by -1 on generation. For cursed items, magnitude may be multiplied by -1.5 (rank 0,1,2 attributes) or -2.5 (rank 0 or 1 only).

-Rank -1 will only appear on cursed items.

For a list of spells that can be invoked by weapons, see invoke.

Chance of extra melee/ranged attack in Elona+[]

The following is adapted from Ano's blog.

Calculation for chance of first extra melee/ranged attack:

  • With class bonus: extra attack occurs if
random number(0 to 99) < random number(0 to calculated attribute strength x 2 + 1) + 5
  • Without class bonus: extra attack occurs if
random number(0 to 99) < random number(0 to calculated attribute strength x 2 + 1)

Calculation for chance of second extra melee/ranged attack and onwards:

  • Extra attack will occur if
random number(0 to 99) + (number of hands + 10) x number of extra attacks have already occurred < calculated attribute strength x 2 + 1

Calculated attribute strength = sum of extra melee/ranged attack equipment attribute strength across all equipment pieces / 15.

Number of hands = 0 if using martial arts without a shield. Is also 0 in Elona+ 1.62 and later when number of hands is 2 or fewer.

Omake Overhaul[]

Able to better correctly see enchantment strength in detailed description window

Replaced the extremely ambiguous notation '#####+' with another system where if enchantment strength is '######' (6 number signs) it will be shortened to '+' instead. Note that values over 6 characters will not properly be displayed.

For example, if enchantment power is equal to '#################' (17), which would display as '#####+', you will see '++####' (16-17) instead.

Also, strength of "it occasionally stops time." enchantment should now behave correctly.

Translator's notes: the number of number signs # means the turns of the time stop.
