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!

Is this Profile Banner thing new? Or did I just discovered it now?
Well.. I was going to post my randomly generated road experiments... But the new "Attach Files" on profile posts seems to be quite buggy. Also there's no more option to insert Imgur images. Highly unfortunate. Guess I'll give them a bit to fix it and go back to messing with stuff.
my first day back to working on my project and i'm pooped!! hope to get back in the rhythm soon!
