    hi guys,

    where does your opinion stand on sa options for r grade weapons for fw? excluding rare soul crystals for the moment.

    is it empower or acumen? and why? i, myself, am de fw and cant decide on this. empower seems reasonable now in god.

    thanks

    lool riight... i think u should use polearm so u can balance out some melee aoe with ur aoe spells. thus you should get health sa so you can survive the mobs. learn to play l2 nab.

    well, you entered a world of interlude- player where castspeed change the cast speed and the reuse of skills.
    at that time, cast speed was the must as it would decrease the time between each skill even the more powerful.

    you arrive at a place where people think they know things but don't as they are lost somewhere in the past.

    however, with empower sa, keep in mind that the bonus is maybe like 1% of you matk. which means that the bonus is so low you wouldn't see any effect.

    well, according to l2wiki:

    empower

    <soul crystal enhancement>
    increases m. atk. by 296.

    that's more than 10% on an unbuffed character. and it's the only thing why i am considering it since when fully buffed, those 15% of cast speed become really insignificant because you cast almost instantly.

    any ideas?

    1) always check with buff (unless you farm without, but this would be ******ed)

    2) for mage 10% increase matk doesn't mean 10% damage increase.

    let's consider this :
    matk : 3000
    skill power : 100
    empower bonus : 300

    the math is something like this :
    3000 + 100 * 100 = 13.000
    sqrt(13.000) = 114 real power

    3300 + 100 * 100 = 13.300
    sqrt(13.300) = 115.3 real power

    congratulation, you earn about 1,1% damage output !


    note, might also be like (can't remember the order of the operation) :
    sqrt(3000) + 100 = 154.77 real power
    sqrt(3300) + 100 = 157.4 real power

    which is a 1.7% increase ! still amazing !

    matk is square rooted which is why in the new years event we got 8% patk and 16% matk increase.they both give the same damage increase.i hear empower sa is a static increase after all the other bonuses so it seems pretty pointless to me.i wonder if magic hold will land consistently enough to warrant a double sa.
