cls_savthr_xxx.2da defines the saving throw progression of classes via. being defined as SavingThrowTable in classes.2da.

While the file defines levels 1-60 after level 20 the epic saving throw progression is used. It is probable that the 1-60 was the original OC where monsters could go above level 20 and epic levels were not clearly defined. Epic progression of saving throws starts at +0 for level 21, up to +10 for level 40.

To do: Work out what creature saving throws are post-level-40 and how they're calculated (ie what classes of a 30 Wizard / 30 Rogue would it take for the first 20 levels? Presumably the 1st class slot).

Existing 2da Files

There is usually no need to write your own file, just use an existing one, since all the combinations of Fortitude, Will and Reflex High/Low are available.

There are two types of progression, High and Low:

  • High: Floor( (Level / 2) ) + 2, eg: level 7 is Floor(7 / 2) + 2 = Floor(3.5) + 2, so floored to 5.
  • Low: Floor(Level / 3), eg: level 7 is Floor( 7 / 3 ) = Floor(2.333), so floored to 2
