Accuracy Question

Dad here: Someone please explain this one!:

Playing my Master Sorcerer, Wolf, with accumulated clothing/item accuracy of +5%, I cast a Precision followed by a Judgement, which FIZZLED?!

Spell: 85%
Items +5%
Precision +10%
= 100%

SO HOW IS THIS FIZZLE POSSIBLE? ( No Black Mantles or the Fire equivalent were in force at the time).

If I recall correctly from another post I read somewhere there's a cap of 99% accuracy. Anything beyond that is wasted points.

i am confused by that too but maybe the items dont effect the card accuracy at all plus the fire thing is smoke screen

Maybe the percentages don't stack like that. Maybe it's more of this:

Spell: 85%
items: 5%

5% of 85 is 4.25

New accuracy: 89.25
Precision: 10%

10% of 89.25 is 8.925

Total accuracy: 98.175

That would actually make sense.

No, one of the professors confirmed that accuracy is additive. So, 85+5+15=100%

It would be interesting to know if the 99% cap is actually the case. My life wizard has +9% general accuracy from clothing items and I fizzle sometimes on centaur, but I've never fizzled on a wand or blade or other 100% spell.

well maybe they didnt add the accuracy right for that spell judgement(right?) and of course you dont fizzle on those 100% accuracy cards they are made so that they dont fizzle unless you have black mantle(or whatever it is) and/or smoke screen

something like this happened to someone in arena
supposedly he did something to his fire dragon that made its accuracy 100% but when he used it it fizzled (i guess i was lucky cause the guy was on the other team)

Hit 'C'. Does the accuracy character info say 15%? (should indicate whether its additive or multiplicative).
