Further feedback appreciated. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:55, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

Expanded a little. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:28, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

Looks great, however the only thing I don't understand is it displays two lines, Max melee hit, and precisely. I don't know what the difference between those two are. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:23, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

The value following precisely is the un-rounded max hit, so you can see exactly how much your hit is effected by something. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 16:35, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

Added ferocious ring. I'll be bold and move this to the mainspace page unless I get some negative feedback soon. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:12, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Ooh! Ooh! What about Dharok's? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:16, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
The relationship between the amount of LP remaining and max hit increase is unknown (might be linear, might not be), but it is known that below 10% its double, so I'll use that. Should I put it as a special attack or its own field? Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:20, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
I would say that it should be its own field. It would fit well under special attack but people might not think to look there to find it. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:32, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it also stacks differently to special attacks (impossible to stack with slayer helm, void and castlewar brace, whereas specials can). Anyway, the source of the formula is conflicting with us and neither gives an inkling of exactly how dharok's fits in the formula. I don't really want to guess at how it works at the risk of providing an unreliable calculator, so without further info there's not a lot I can do Concerned Added a note.

I went ahead and moved it, at long last. I'll leave the rfc for awhile, it'd be nice for some more feedback. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 18:50, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

I doubt we're going to get much more feedback. --LiquidTalk 13:14, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

If the max hit is below 0 shouldn't it display zero in at least the precise max hit? and the calculator thinks your max hit is lower if you have 99 strength and using a funny weapon than if you have 1 strength... Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 20:36, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
