Bow vs Scale 2


Testing Player Crafted weapons were as follows

duskwood heavy recurve bow
16.5 dps (16.0 effective dps)
5.5 Speed
99% quality


Determining damage cap

Damage Cap = EDPS * SPD * 3 * (1 + (SPD – 2) * .03) * (1.1 + (0.005 x spec) )

16.0 x 5.5 x 3 x 1.105 x 1.355 = 494


Determining base damage range -

EDPS * (your WS/target AF) * (1-absorb) * (1-base resists) * (1-RA resists) * slow weap bonus * SPD * 2h weapon bonus * Arrow Bonus

2h weapon bonus = 1.1 + (0.005 x spec)

SLow Weapon bonus = 1 + ( (spd - 2) x 0.03)


16.0 x (1525 / 635) x 1.105 x 5.5 x 1.355


16 x 2.4015748031496062992125984251969 x 8.2350125 = 316.43197637795275590551181102362

Variance adjustments due to 51 spec

316.4 x 1.0 = 316.4 adjusted min value
316.4 x 1.41 = 446.1 adjusted max value

Arrow Damage bonus multipliers

316.4 x 1.25 = 395.5 adjusted value
474.6 x 1.25 = 557.6 adjusted value

27% Absorption Adjustment

395.5 x 0.73 = 288.7 predicted max value
557.6 x 0.73 = 407 predicted max value
