| Although simplified in a few areas, this is more or less how damage is calculated:
2). Multiply base damage by the combat style you are using.
3). Determine the damage bonus from the accuracy of your hit. This applies a factor from 20% to 200% (more than 200% with some special attacks).
4). Add in bonuses from strength, weapon power and other bonuses.
5). Roll with a random factor, and this is your damage.
6). Based on the vitality of the target, a % of this damage is turned into wound damage. This is usually close to 0% when a target is above 80% vitality.
One-shotting is gone simply because everything has a ton more hit points than it did before - and because it is impossible to destroy critical body parts on the first hit. I hope that makes sense.
