How does the "Attack State" trait stack with skills that Add State?

If a combatant has Attack State Poison +20% as a trait, and uses a skill that has "Add State: Normal Attack" and "Add State: Poison", how are these two computed?

Multiple effects will apply separately, one after another, in the order they are listed on the item/skill.

Note that the attack state is applied exclusively via the Add State: Normal Attack skill/item effect. This is present by default on the Attack skill. It comes with a percentage, e.g. 100%, that multiplies the attack state chance. :kaophew:

Example:
  • A battler has an Attack State: Poison +20% trait.
    They use a skill with Add State: Normal Attack 50% and Add State: Poison 80% effects.
    Their target has an overall state rate of 70% for Poison.

  • Normal Attack state: 50% * 20% * 70% = 7% chance of applying Poison.
    Poison state: 80% * 70% = 56% chance of applying Poison.
    As noted, these are rolled separately: the target might get poisoned 0, 1, or 2 times.

Edit: also, by default when a state is applied its duration is reset, so applying the same state 1+ times in the same action is pretty much the same as applying it once.

Thanks for the helpful response! I think I get it now!
