Pierce vs Scale


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 / 635) x 3.9 x 1.057
16.0 x (1128 / 635) x 3.3 x 1.039


16 x 1.7763779527559055118110236220472 x 4.1223 = 117.16420535433070866141732283465
16 x 1.7763779527559055118110236220472 x 3.4287 = 97.450673385826771653543307086614

Variance adjustments due to 51 spec

117 x 1.0 = 117 adjusted min value
115 x 1.41 = 165 adjusted max value
97.4 x 1.0 = 97.4 adjusted min value
97.4 x 1.41 = 137.3 adjusted max value

27% Absorption Adjustment

117 x 0.73 = 85 predicted min value
165 x 0.73 = 120 predicted max value
97.4 x 0.73 = 71 predicted min value
137.3 x 0.73 = 100 predicted max value
