EDIT: Please disregard and ignore me. I realized the problem was the weapon was not sized appropriately for the power armor.

I'm playing around with a powered armor build on a high-dex character, and I'm wondering if there is a bug that is dropping my attack bonus when the armor is equipped or if HeroLab is accurately applying the rules and it's my understanding that is flawed.

Here's the math:
* Character is a 10th level goblin with +7 Dex Bonus
* Ironclad Bulwark Powered Armor has a Max Dex Bonus of +2
* Armor Check Penalty is -6
* When armor is NOT equipped, I have a +19 to attack
* When armor IS equipped, I have a +15

I'm not sure why my attack bonus is dropping when the armor is equipped.

The rules state, "You normally add your Dexterity modifier to your EAC and KAC, but itís limited by your powered armor. A suit of powered armorís maximum Dexterity bonus indicates how much of your Dexterity modifier you can add to your AC. Any excess Dexterity bonus doesnít raise your AC further. " So, it doesn't seem like that should be affecting the attack roll, plus the numbers don't quite add up.

Any thoughts? Is there a way to get a tool-tip pop-up to show the calculations?
