Hrmm, my numbers are off - thanks to pokersmith1 for pointing that out. I'll need to go back and fix that...meh. I was keeping the when pasting instead of bah, that will teach me to rush through something. I'll go back and edit it...first though...

Elusive gives you +10% Bonus Defense.
9 Maneuvers gives you +15% Bonus Defense.

That's +25% Bonus Defense.

Course as noted below, you were probably applying the -15% for sitting still to get that never mind.

Based on the example provided here:

Since this is positive, you would look in the If Diff Positive box, and get "1.13..." as your result... Meaning you have 'Accuracy Overflow'... You have 100% chance to-hit your target, and, if you look in the lower-right hand portion of the spreadsheet, you can look on the Accuracy Overflow table, and look at the entry for 0.1 (since your overflow is 0.13-ish)... You would gain a little more than 1.25% Critical Chance, and a little more than 5% Critical Severity.
While the Diff is 0.15, it's a case of looking at the Diff Positive Box - not the number in the Diff Box. So you're looking at 0.130434783 - that's the Accuracy Overflow - not the 0.15...

So that gives you +1.63% CrtH & +6.5% CrtD.

With your example, not sure how you got the Accuracy Overflow of 0.15... was it the Diff Box and not the Diff Positive Box for a +25% Accuracy vs. +10% Defense (should be +25%)?

Hrmmm, I need to go back and redo my numbers like I said...stupid of me carrying that 1 over...meh.

Let me do a quick example here though and I'll go back to edit those afterward:

Accurate (+10%) & 9 Targeting (+15%) vs. Elusive (+10%) & 9 Maneuvers (+15%) vs. a target sitting still (oh, duh - that's where you got the 10% - like I said, I'm not thinking right now...moron that I am).

So that gives us our +1.63% CrtH & +6.5% CrtD.

If we add a +10% ACC mod to that, our Accuracy Overflow becomes 0.2 giving us +2.5% CrtH & +10% CrtD.

If we took a +2% CrtH mod, we'd have +3.63% CrtH & +6.5% CrtD.

If we took a +20% CrtD mod, we'd have +1.63% CrtH & +26.5% CrtD.

2x ACC: +3.2% CrtH & +12.96% CrtD
2x CrtH: +5.63% CrtH & +6.5% CrtD
2x CrtD: +1.63% CrtH & +46.5% CrtD

So yeah, I'll go back and fix my math...meh.

It's not a case of modifying the's a case of giving a modifier.

An ACC mod gives +10% Accuracy.
4 in Targeting gives +9.7% Accuracy...5 gives +11.2%.
