I couldn't get a very clear explanation over the internet. Within the Dexterity stat figures "Fumble Recovery"


What does it mean if the attack is "fumbled"?

  • Fumbled Attacks = Chance of your attack dealing less damage May 28 '16 at 7:07
  • Fumbled Recovery = Reduces the damage penalty for Fumbled Attacks May 28 '16 at 7:11

Like in most RPGs there are critical hits. A fumbled attack in Torchlight II is a critical hit with negative impacts. By pressing J you open your Arcane Statistics (by default):

arcane statistics

This character has a 21% chance to hit a negative critical strike. This hit would deal only -49% of the normal damage.

By skilling DEX you reduce this rate. With e.g. the +30% Fumble Recovery from your screenshot, my character would have a malus in dealt damage of only -19%when he does a fumbled attack, however the Fumble Chance keeps the same.

  • So if I score a critical strike, there's a chance to fumble that critical strike, which means.. dealing less critical damage than intended?

  • A fumbled critical hit will do the fumble damage, not the critical damage. Aug 12 '16 at 3:26
