What do the CR ratings (e.g. Impossible (purple): 5 or more levels higher) compare the creature CR to? The level of the player, the highest level character in the party, the number of party members added to the previous two, or something else? WhiZard 04:07, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
- EDIT: Actually its not creature CR but its character level/HD compared to player character's character level. --ShaDoOoW 13:01, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
- So CR is only for kill XP. Given player characters have a CR of 0 it would not be useful anywhere in monster AI. WhiZard 19:44, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Actually my test with a level one character vs. a level one creature with an exceptionally large number of hit points, showed as purple (impossible). I think CR is being used as hit dice does not justify this. WhiZard 22:03, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
- You are right. My later edit was incorrect, its a long time I was working with it as a most servers these days doesn't show this information. Anyway there is still more purposes of CR. I believe (but hardcoded, hard to test) its used in bioware spawn encounters (I think you read my post on bioware forum right).
Also not only creatures has CR, a spell does too. A CR of a spell is (InnateLevel*2)-1. --ShaDoOoW 23:30, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
