Enhanced Devoted is an 2-slot improved version of the Devoted Invention perk that has a chance on each hit of replicating the Devotion ability for 3 seconds, which causes protection and deflection prayers to reduce damage from the appropriate style to 1. The perk does not put the ability itself on cooldown. This perk takes up two slots in a gizmo, meaning that it cannot be paired with any other perk in the same gizmo. It is created in armour gizmos.

Any type of damage, including typeless damage and self-inflicted damage can activate the perk. The opponent's hit that activates Enhanced Devoted is also affected by the perk. Enhanced Devoted will play the same animation as Devotion whenever it activates, but has an icon of its own in the buffs/debuffs interface.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

Tables of damage reduction provided by Enhanced Devoted in both PvM and PvP situations. The damage reduction varies with the rank of the perk, the attack rate of the enemy[note 1], and if the perk is on level 20 gear.

Average damage reduction in PvM for the different ranks of the Enhanced Devoted perk. The attack rate, , of the enemy (given in game ticks) has an effect on the damage reduction. The damage reduction in parentheses correspond to placing this perk on level 20 gear.

Calculations
Notes
  • A calculator for this is at the top of this page.
  • Assumptions :
    • The enemy is always attacking with the same style that matches the protect prayer (deflect curse) used.
    • The enemy is always attacking at the same attack rate.
  • is the rank of the Enhanced Devoted perk.
  • is the proc chance of Enhanced Devoted to activate (if the perk is on level 20 gear, then this value is multiplied by 1.1).
  • when or . This represents summing over all possibilities where integer represents the amount of hits prior to the proc of Enhanced Devoted. The probability of Enhanced Devoted proccing on hit is therefore .
  • is the time that Enhanced Devoted is active. This is taken to be 5 game ticks.
  • is the attack rate of the enemy in game ticks.
  • is the random value uniformly sampled between the enemy's minimum hit and maximum hit. The describes different sets of hits. The sets are regenerated for every new value of .
    • has elements with integer . This is the damage taken before the perk procs.
      • Clarification : This does mean that for that there are no elements in this set.
    • has elements with integer . This is the damage taken during the time Enhanced Devoted procced.
    • The set of values in for integer is the same in both the numerator and denominator of the ratios for any given .


Damage reduction

For PvM :

  • The average ratio of damage taken, , from Enhanced Devoted to that of without Enhanced Devoted is
  • The average damage reduction is then, after some rearranging,

For PvP :

  • The average ratio of damage taken, , from Enhanced Devoted to that of without Enhanced Devoted is
  • The average damage reduction is then, after some rearranging,
Simplifications
  • This can be simplified if the assumption is that every value of integer , integer , integer , is taken to be the same . In this scenario, there is no random element and the above is then only dependent on the proc chance and the attack rate of the enemy. This simplification is increasingly accurate in the limit of large . All examples are using large enough values of such that the values should not change to the first two decimal places in percent. Two tables are provided at the top of the page. The first covers all values of for PvM situations. The second table is for PvP for all values of (normal attack rate of player is in non-legacy mode , but all values of have been provided to account for proccing on damage-over-time abilities, 4 tick auto attack, etc., as well as the varied attack rates of weapons if using legacy combat).

Using these simplifications, the damage reduction reduces to

Enhanced Devoted and Devoted[edit | edit source]

Enhanced Devoted and Devoted activating together to increase damage reduction.

Having Devoted and Enhanced Devoted on one's gear has a benefit.[1] Enhanced Devoted takes priority over Devoted. However, as Enhanced Devoted is unable to proc while it is currently active, this allows for a small window of time for Devoted to proc. Both Devoted and Enhanced Devoted, on their own, last 5 game ticks (3 seconds). This also means that it is possible (though unlikely) to have continuous procs of Enhanced Devoted and Devoted. The chance of continuous procs occurring is highly dependent on the attack rate of the enemy[note 1]. Further information about the combination can be found in the calculator linked at the top of this page.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ a b To be more precise, it is really the frequency of ticks that the player is taking damage and not really the attack rate that determines the increased chance of continuous procs. However, in the simplest case, this is the attack rate of the enemy. As an example, take 4 enemies, each with an attack rate of 4, attacking the player with their hits offset by one tick from each other (enemy A attacks tick 1, enemy B attacks tick 2, ...). In this example, this is effectively the same as an attack rate of 1 to the player. This means that as long as the player is taking at least one hit every tick, regardless of the number of enemies attacking, the effective attack rate is 1. Conversely, if these same enemies, each with an attack rate of 4, are attacking the player on the same tick (enemy A attacks tick 1, enemy B attacks tick 1, ...), then the effective attack rate is 4. In general, more enemies attacking the player leads to a higher frequency of ticks that the player is taking hits, increasing the chance of continuous procs and therefore increasing the damage reduction.
