Blind
Debuff

A Blinded Rhoa

Blind is a debuff that lessens the chance to hit of the affected target by 50% and lowers the light radius to the minimum value.

Mechanics

The base duration of Blind is 4 seconds. Attacking with Resolute Technique or attacking a target which has Unwavering Stance will nullify the miss chance. Blinding a target will also reduce its effective critical strike chance by reducing its chance to succeed confirmation rolls of critical strikes.[1] Blind is not an elemental status ailment and is not affected by the Crystal Skin notable passive skill.

Calculations

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{chance to hit}_{\text{as blinded attacker vs defender} } & = 0.5 * (1 - \text{chance to evade}_{\text{defender} }) \\
\text{chance to evade}_{\text{as defender vs blinded attacker} } & = 1 - 0.5 * (\text{chance to hit}_{\text{attacker} })
\end{align}

For example, if you would normally have a 35% chance to evade attacks made by a particular enemy, you would have the following chance to evade against blinded enemies:

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{chance to evade} & = 1 - 0.5 * (1 - 0.35) \\
& = 67.5%
\end{align}


In addition, the attacker's effective critical strike chance is also reduced:

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{Attacker's effective critical strike chance} = \text{Attacker's critical strike chance} * \text{Attacker's chance to hit}
\end{align}

Using the values from the previous example, if the attacker has a 20% critical strike chance then its effective critical strike chance can be calculated as follows

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{effective critical strike chance}_{\text{not blinded} } & = 20% * (1 - 35%) \\
& = 13% \\
\text{effective critical strike chance}_{\text{blinded} } & = 20% * (1 - 67.5%) \\
& = 6.5%
\end{align}
