Post subject:  Attribute die bump stacking 
Hi there Just wanted to check some things regarding die bump stacking with the hive mind My understanding is that you can do to 1d12+2 unless you have something that states otherwise So if I have a Might of 1d12 + Magic item that gives die bump + Furious Rage + Bloodline talent Then I would still only have 1d12+2 for might If my Might is naturally increased to 1d12+2 and I have all the items listed above, then they will have no actual effect. Just wanted to check I was correct Cheers

My recollection is that 1d12 die bumps to 2d6.

It mas my understanding that normally die bumps continued to stack up as additional +2's, so if you had 1d12+2 and got a die bump, it went to 1d12+4. pg 91 which deals with die bumps doesn't mention any maximum to the number of bonus's to a d12 die that can be applied, so as long as you follow the stacking rules that are provided in the errata you should be fine. The other option is to get something that allows you to die bump from a d12 to 2d6, like a rune of might, and then die bump it up from there, though the rune of might explicitly limits that to a 2d8, if you use that option.

Per my remembrance of the rule, a Medium creature cannot have a physical Attribute higher than d12. All further bumps, as toodeep suggest, is a +2, +4, etc unless the ability specifically states otherwise. Essentially: you will only ever (unless otherwise stated) have a single die which can explode (d12). If you bumped to 2d6, while it is no different than d12 in max roll, your minimum is 2 and not 1, and you have 2 chance to explode (which on a d6 is a 1 in 6). Medium creatures don't get this advantage compared to larger creatures.

I did the math on exploding dice, and the math on the mulriple stat dice where only one explodes: Avg roll value R = .5 N (N+1)/(N1) where N is the max value on the die. Is good for determining the value of the average of an exploding die: Die, avg, exploding avg D4, 2.5, 3.33 D6, 3.5, 4.20 D8, 4.5, 5.14 D10, 5.5, 6.11 D12, 6.5, 7.09 Now past that still strictly speaking of averages, you can add a non exploding die and an exploding die: 2d6, is 7.70 2d8 is 9.65 2d10 11.61 2d12 13.59 (Admitedky this is a bit low by less than 1 across the board, it doesnt acount truly for both dice being able to explode but only taking one Comparitively D12 +2 is 9.09 D12 +4 is 11.09 D12 +6 is 13.09 D12 +8 is 15.09 As this relates to the original question: if you can stay in D12 + range( not take the might rune ) your average damage will be higher. The might rune specifically states you bump to 2d6 instead of d12+2, so imo its great if it gets ya to d12, but if it were to push you out of the d12+2 range i woukd skip it.

I do not think the calculations above allow for the fact that once you bump to 2dX the odds of a die explosion more than double. i.e. the odds of a die explosion are 1 in 12 (approx 8%), while the odds of a die explosion for 2d6 is more (almost 30%), mainly because you get an explosion if you roll a 6 on either die (though admittedly, the value of an explosion is less on a d6 than a d12)

I did add a note about that already, thr difference is less than 1 ( at least in the case of 2d6. A D6 on avg is 3.5, and an exploding D6 is 4.2, so at max, the average is 8.4, the value i provided was 7.7, and I am happy to concede the point that is more than 7.7 and less than 8.4 but my point is that number is still signifacantly less than the average of 1d12+2, 9.09.

Plugged both into AnyDice to compare: https://anydice.com/program/16559 Click: "Graph" and "At Least" for visual output. For results between 4 and 12, rolling Mi: 2d6 is a couple of points ahead of 1d12+2 Outside that range, it is effectively level.

If you had a natural d12, a might rune, and one other thing that gave a die bump, what would the final total be? Would it be d12 > 2d6 > 2d8, d12 > 2d6 > 2d6+2, or something else?
