[item modification][other game mechanics aspects] aden. lots of shops and signs with "riot" people pass them by and no one panics. here's some stuff for those who are, like, tired. explaining - god forbid - the game mechanics. purpose: to find out how hellfire seed talisman affects skill damage. experiment: iss hierophant lv.99 attacked aeore evas saint lv.99 using mass crippling attack lv.8, death strike lv.8 and mass shadow blade lv.8. during this experiment, we checked the bonus of hellfire seed talisman that provides +1% to physical skill attack. then compared the increase with increase given by enchanted duel skill from +7 to +8. iss hierophant lv.99 was equipped with a weapon with no attribute, and aeore evas saint had no armor. the results of the experiment are presented in the table below. skills no buff full buff mass crippling attack lv.8 1283/2567 1458/2917 death strike lv.8 1660/3320 1835/3671 mass shadow blade lv.8 1443/2886 1618/3237 mass crippling attack lv.8 +talisman - hellfire 1308/2617 1486/2972 death strike lv.8 + talisman - hellfire 1689/3378 1866/3733 mass shadow blade lv.8 + talisman - hellfire 1470/2940 1647/3294 mass crippling attack lv.8 + 7 duel 1577/3155 1753/3451 death strike lv.8+ 7 duel 2070/4141 2246/4492 mass shadow blade lv.8 + 7 duel 1752/3505 1927/3855 mass crippling attack lv.8 + 8 duel 1602/3202 1777/3555 death strike lv.8 + 8 duel 2105/4211 2281/4562 mass shadow blade lv.8 + 8 duel 1780/3561 1956/3912 conclusion: as you can see, we did not make a series of hits with a condition of our skills enchanted to +7 and usage of hellfire seed talisman. we only need to see the difference in the increase of damage between enchantment levels and between using talisman and not. as you can see from the numbers in the table, there is no difference between these boosts. this means that there is no difference in damage increase from duel skill enchanted to +8 and +7 duel + using hellfire seed talisman. answering your question, with is the same (within the error limits a unique system of rounding fractional numbers in the game that we all love). answering your question, what is the best choice of these two options, we would like to remind you that +1% to physical skill attack is not the only bonus that is granted by this talisman. we would like to add that this conclusion only actual for skills enchanted for duel when difference in enchantment equals 1.
