Pierce vs Reinforced


Testing Player Crafted weapons were as follows

Arcanite Exceptional Rapier (Mainhand Weapon) 16.5 dps (16.0 effective dps) 3.9 Speed 99% quality 0% bonus

Arcanite Exceptional Stiletto (Offhand Weapon) 16.5 dps (16.0 effective dps) 3.3 Speed 99% quality 0% bonus

Determining damage cap

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

16.0 x 3.9 x 3 x 1.057 x 1 = 198
16.0 x 3.3 x 3 x 1.039 x 1 = 164

Determining base damage range -

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

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

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


16.0 x (1128 / 595) x 3.9 x 1.057
16.0 x (1128 / 595) x 3.3 x 1.039


16 x 1.895798319327731092436974789916 x 4.1223 = 125.04079058823529411764705882353
16 x 1.895798319327731092436974789916 x 3.4287 = 104.00197915966386554621848739496

Variance adjustments due to 51 spec

125 x 1.0 = 125 adjusted min value
125 x 1.41 = 176.2 adjusted max value
104 x 1.0 = 104 adjusted min value
104 x 1.41 = 146.6 adjusted max value

19% Absorption Adjustment

125 x 0.81 = 101.2 predicted min value
176.2 x 0.81 = 142.7 predicted max value
104 x 0.81 = 84.2 predicted min value
146.6 x 0.81 = 118.7 predicted max value
