Lets talk probability! In Eldritch Horror you get a success on a roll of 5 or 6. That means each die you roll gives you a 1:3 chance of success without any modifiers. If you roll 3 die you should get an average of 1 success. If you get to reroll one die, your chances of success now balloon to 1:3 plus 1:3 since these are independent events. Getting to reroll something is much better than getting an entire extra die because you only reroll if you get a loss.If you look at my overall rolls, they were pretty close to average. The difference was that I kept getting one success when I rolled 4, 5 or 6 dies (with rerolls) but got lucky with successes when one or two die were rolled.If the die are fair (they came with the game) then everything will even out close to the mean probability over time. But...... in this game if you roll a fail the results can be catastrophic. You can go insane, lose an entire turn, or even die from physical damage. If you pass, most of the time nothing bad happens. After all, this is Lovecraft based.
