I am of the opinion that the system governing NPCs and their damage calc is no simple fix. Nothing seems to be a simple fix. Everything I have seen in Cryptic's reticence to overhaul aspects of their system makes me think the background code is as needlessly complicated as a Rube Goldberg machine. Figuring out how to retool this might be like unraveling a ball of fishing wire. Q knows when some, if any, sort of retooling might come to pass.

But if this really is the case, then there's something to blame the damage on at least.
Well said. From Borticus responses about sci powers and [Acc] modifiers not effecting FAW Dontdrunk and yourself have the right of it.
