hey how do you determine the miss% chance after DR? i know its a 5% base miss on bosses, but does anyone know how much miss after DR you get at 540 defense?

While not entirely accurate, give or take half a percent, it's about 9.5%. But I think that may also take into account the 5% miss.

You can -

1) Download a spreadsheet
2) Read and understand Diminishing Returns - Avoidance (on tankspot) and use the formula in example 3. The spreadsheets will be using this formula.
3) Look at the table below (although I used def skill rather than def rating for the numbers, there shouldn't be a difference to 2dp).

Code: Select all
Miss gained from def

Def  Pre DR Post DR
540   5.60   4.29
541   5.64   4.31
542   5.68   4.33
543   5.72   4.35
544   5.76   4.38
545   5.80   4.40
546   5.84   4.42
547   5.88   4.44
548   5.92   4.46
549   5.96   4.49
550   6.00   4.51
551   6.04   4.53
552   6.08   4.55
553   6.12   4.57
554   6.16   4.59
555   6.20   4.61
556   6.24   4.64
557   6.28   4.66
558   6.32   4.68
559   6.36   4.70
560   6.40   4.72


4) In the absence of all of the above you can add 0.02% per defense skill to 4.3%. Easy enough to do in your head although not as accurate as the above methods. Between 540-555 it has a -0.01% to +0.01% error.
