Double Action (Mechanics)

From The Walkscape Walkthrough

Double Action is an attribute that changes the chance for an action to be completed twice instead of once, giving full rewards (experience and loot table rolls) twice. If this triggers when traveling - jump two nodes instead of one!

Double Action Calculation

  1. Double action has a chance to occur on every activity completion.
  2. Double action percentage bonuses from attributes is calculated.
  3. The double action percentage chance is rolled to see if it occurs on this action.

Example with No Double Action Bonus

If we want to craft a Steel Pickaxe with no equipment, and we complete a crafting action.

  1. Craft a Steel Pickaxe has two drop tables one for the pickaxe itself and another for a crafting chest.
  2. We have no equipment, so we have no double action percentage.
    • Double action = 0.00
  3. Our 0.00 double action odds gives us a 0% chance per action completed.
    • We will not get any double actions.
    • We receive one pickaxe roll for quality and one crafting chest roll as normal.
      • The pickaxe drops as a Good Steel Pickaxe

Example with a Double Action Bonus

If we want to craft a Steel Pickaxe with a Magnifying Lense, and we complete a crafting action.

  1. Craft a Steel Pickaxe has two drop tables one for the pickaxe itself and another for a crafting chest.
  2. Magnifying Lense gives 5% bonus to double action.
    • Double action = 0.05
  3. Our 0.05 double action odds gives us a 5% chance per action completed.
    • We roll for double action at the completion of the action and get it.
    • We use up two sets of materials for crafting a steel pickaxe and receive two pickaxes and two chances for chests.
      • The first pickaxe rolls its quality and is dropped as a Normal Steel Pickaxe
      • The second pickaxe rolls its quality and is dropped as an Good Steel Pickaxe.
    • We roll on the chest loot table twice.

Note that this is exactly the same as completing an action twice normally. This is similar in some ways to the Double Rewards (Mechanics) except it gives experience and progress as well. They can work well together though. Double action gives twice the chance for double rewards to occur so in rare chances you can have four loot rolls from one completed action.

Example with a Double Action Bonus while Traveling

If we want to travel from Kallaheim to Frusenholm with an Exercise Headband, and we complete node in the travel action.

  1. Kallaheim to Frusenholm has 10 nodes between it, we've walked the steps for the first tenth of the distance.
  2. Exercise Headband gives 15% bonus to double action only when traveling.
    • Double action = 0.15
  3. Our 0.15 double action odds gives us a 15% chance per action completed.
    • We roll for double action at the completion of the action and get it.
    • We complete two traveling actions.
      • The first action moves us 1/10 of the way to Frusenholm
      • The second action moves us an additional 1/10 of the distance, for a total of 2/10 of the distance for 1 actions work of work.
    • We roll on the chest loot table twice.
