Ranged Attack

Postby Roko » Fri Feb 22, 2008 10:02 am

Damage = (ranged weapon damage + ammo damage + fSTR2) * PDIF
PDIF = function of your ratk / mob def -.025(mob level - your level)
fSTR2 = (function of your STR - mob VIT+5)/2

Here's the PDIF graph:

To break it down further:

Your Ratk = ((skill in weapon+Ratk from gear+STR/2+minuet+job trait+8)*food)*berserk

As you can see, STR is figured in twice with every shot, once to figure out your RAtk vs the mob's defense, and once to figure out your STR vs the mob's VIT, like a melee would.

Your typical level 81 deco weapon has DEF 344 and VIT 73.
Kirin, level 92, has 413 def and 120 VIT (courtesy of Studio Gobli)

VZX wrote up a damage calculator in Excel which I'll post the link to when I get home. Likewise the graph of PDIF. I'll discuss PDIF more when there's a graph up you can look at while reading this, so it makes more sense.

here's the calculator
