How are Ranged Touch Attacks calculated?

AC wise? I believe that it's the AC minus the bonus' from your armor.

If I remember it right, it's att+DEX (modifiers for range?) vs. 10+DEX+deflection. Basically, it's like ranged attack, but you only have to hit the other, so AC from armour, shield, etc., doesn't matter.

Almost....

It's: d20 + Dex vs 10 + Deflection AC + Dodge AC + Dex

The Dodge feat and all those nice Monk items that give Dodge bonuses, which is the only stackable AC bonus, help against Ranged Touch attacks.

Mobility doesn't help as that only counts against AoO.

With the Warlock in NWN2 Dex is going to be hugely important as AFAIK all of the attacking invocations are ranged touch attacks
