Description[edit | edit source]

This page contains information for calculating the average damage for both auto and (most) non-bleed abilities as well as the average damage for bleed abilities. There are two calculators in total as well as a description for each. The following are the major differences between non-bleeds and bleeds:

  • Bleeds have a damage cap of 10,000 as they cannot land critical hits. Autos and non-bleeds can go above this damage cap for critical hits.
  • Many bleeds have an unusually high chance to land their minimum hit.
  • Bleeds are unaffected by most damage modifying perks as well as many other damage modifiers.

Below are the two buttons that allow usage of both calculators.

The average damage for most non-bleed abilities[exceptions 1] and auto-attacks can be calculated by:

A quick way of finding the minimum and maximum hit of an ability is to use a Training dummy at the Dummy area in War's Retreat under any and all damage modifiers desired, including but not limited to:

Once the minimum hit and maximum hit are known for a specific hit of an ability (this means, for example, the calculation will be different for the first hit of hurricane as compared to the second), the average damage can be calculated. This calculator assumes the hit chance is 100%. This result of this calculator is meant to be a good approximation due to how the variables are stored (has an effect on the natural critical hit chance as well as the range of the critical hits).

Calculations[edit | edit source]

Notes
  • The damage range is defined by with the condition that the .
  • The damage cap, , is the maximum damage possible in the non-critical range. This is 10000 damage.
  • The critical cap, , is the maximum damage a critical hit can be. This is 12000 damage unless Erethdor's grimoire is active, in which case it is 15000 damage.
  • A forced critical hit are criticals hits that come from the Biting perk, Erethdor's grimoire, Concentrated Blast, Fury, etc.
    • is the minimum hit of the critical range from forced critical hits.
    • is the maximum hit of the critical range from forced critical hits. It may be slightly off from the maximum hit, .
  • A natural critical hit are criticals that come from landing a critical hit that does not come from forced criticals.
    • is the minimum hit of the critical range from natural critical hits.
    • If neither the Equilibrium aura nor perk are used:
    • If either the Equilibrium aura or perk are used:
      • More information can be found here.
  • The purpose of is to calculate how much of the forced critical hit range is above the critical cap.
  • The purpose of is to calculate how much of the natural critical hit range is above the critical cap.
  • The purpose of is to calculate how much of the non-critical hit range is above the damage cap.
  • The probability of landing a forced critical hit, , is taken to be the sum of the probabilities from each source. Note: The sum of the probabilities is an assumption. If it is confirmed that the probabilities combine in some other way, this will be changed.
  • The probability of landing a natural critical hit depends on whether the Equilibrium aura or perk are used. The effect of the Equilibrium aura overrides the perk.

The average damage for bleed[m 1]abilities can be calculated by:

  • Finding the minimum and maximum hit (Lunging perk included)

A quick way of finding the minimum and maximum hit of an ability is to use a Training dummy at the Dummy area in War's Retreat under any and all damage modifiers[m 2] desired, including but not limited to:

Once the minimum hit and maximum hit are known, the average damage can be calculated. This calculator only needs the minimum and maximum damage for the first hit of any bleed [m 3]. This calculator assumes the hit chance is 100%.

  1. ^ List of bleeds covered by this:
  2. ^ Damage boosting prayers and curses do not affect the damage of bleeds (only the accuracy). The only ultimate ability that modifies the damage of bleeds is Metamorphosis (and only for Magic based bleeds); this modifier is a multiplicative factor of . However, if Berserker, Reckless, or Maniacal are active and a bleed is done while in Berserk, Death's Swiftness, Sunshine/Metamorphosis respectively, the damage done by the bleed is reduced by a multiplicative factor of .
  3. ^ For an exact average of each hit of Corruption Shot or Corruption Blast, the individiaul min and max hits for each hit can be entered. An estimate for the total amount of damage is calculated based on the values inputs for the minimum and maximum assumed to be the first hit of the bleed.
