Default Staff of serpentine ice proc

I'd like to hear from the horses mouth on this one...

The wording on the discription is suspect. Is it just basic chance to hit for melee, or is it chance to avoid block/perry?

From wording i would be almost lead to think it means to literally land the attack meaning 25% chance that hit would land no matter what factors including blocks and parries , but could be wrong is why i asked in other thread too . Could just getting a little fancy on the wording .

"a 25% increased chance of landing melee strikes."

It says an increased chance and not an extra chance. I think this is a simple boost to your chance of connecting with the staff for melee damage.

When I hear the word 'landing' in reference to combat, I understand that as doing damage. It doesn't use the word 'ignore' as does another proc so I imagine this does not cut through blocking and parry and growl at a flat 1 in 4 chance.

The spear of providence provides extra 20% chance for attack to not to be blocked or parried expecting this 1 to actually land as stated doesn't seem to far stretched to me .

And you are correct at pointing out that it saying increased chance to land is different , all other chance to hit items say extra chance to hit furthering my questioning of this proc more .

It "could" mean it shoots daisys and rainbows, no one at this point can confirm this but Glitch, anything else is pure theory and speculation. The description is written very crypticly and I would like clerification from glitchless.

I agree with Cyress, but i think its most likely a chance to hit.

It means chance to land as in not miss. So it is the same as a +chance to hit buff. Does not affect parry/block.

Ty still on my want list , would have been higher up if was a chance to not be blocked or parried .

Also how about the different wording from increased chance , compared to extra

I know that extra chance usually means a roll for the proc after your original hit chances,

Is this 1 added to your base chances ?

And in the future stick to the kiss rule

Keep it simple stupid as some of us are :P

Or you could not let what you want the proc to be cloud your judgement and over analyze a simple worded description...It says landing melee hits in lieu of "Chance to hit with melee strikes" If it avoided blocks and parries ....then it would say so.
