Refraction

From Caves of Qud Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Refraction is a quality that completely negates light-based attacks by re-directing them away from the creature. In some cases, refraction will re-direct the attack back in the general direction of the attacker, with a random degree of angular variance. In other cases the light-based attack is re-directed in a completely random direction. Refraction is different than reflection.

Some creatures have an intrinsic quality of refraction. Other creatures can gain refraction by wearing equipment that grants the quality. The refractive mod can add refraction to worn equipment or shields that do not already have the quality.
