    Default Warforged AC woes.

    Setup:

    I had started a Big Rock Candy build quite some time back and had just started playing again recently before U9 came about. I'm currently at the point below:

    14/2 Ftr/Rog split
    Mithral Body (details)
    18 dex (24 with +6 item)
    Mithral Fluidity (details)
    Fighter Armor Mastery II (details)


    Problem:

    I was under the impression that these would allow for my full dex bonus to be applied to AC, yet I see no difference in when I wear my DEX item and I don't. I see my reflex save increase by 3, but my AC remains static. Is there something I'm missing out on here?

    nevermind, I didn't realize what mithral fluidity is and for some reason just didn't read your whole post. let me think for a moment.

    24 dex = 7 dex bonus to AC potential

    +5 mithral body
    +1 mithral fluidity
    +2 fighter armor masery II
    ~~~~
    +8 total max dex bonus you can take advantage of


    ooh ooh are you using a shield?

    When I wield a shield it is indeed a tower shield. That's the first thing I thought too, so I double checked that. No shield in hand and swapping in dex item and no change in AC.

    FWIW, I do have a rank or two of the enhancement that raises the max dex on tower shields. It's a +5 MTS, and I'm pretty sure I have 2 ranks in the Fighter Tower Shield Mastery enhancements. I'm going to check again in about 1 hr and repost here.

    IIRC, the AC display is a bit bugged; sometimes it won't update properly if the char sheet is open while switching items. Try closing & reopening it between switching items and see if the numbers change.

    Hrmm...thought I had done this already. If it checks out, my "problem" may just be a graphical glitch.



    Stats/equipment:

    10 Base
    5 Docent
    5 Mithral Body
    7 Dex
    2 Stalwart Defender II
    2 Ring of Balance(+2 NA)
    5 Ring of Prot +5
    36

    Adding in the MTS to the above equation should give me a 45 and I should get all of my dex due to Stalwart Defender II and Fighter Tower Shield Mastery II.

    All of this checks out and it appears the problem is all graphical issues. Thanks everyone for the help. It's really weird that Dex and Reflex saves update but AC doesn't.

    ***EDIT*** It appears that AC numbers update for every change I make to it BUT the addition/subtraction of my DEX item.
