    In this experiment, we have tested magic weapon damage spread.

    Attacker: 64 lvl Sorcerer, having all the skills, but without any buffs. Equipment: [​IMG] Priest Mace [M. Atk. 63] и [​IMG] Sword of Magic Fog [M. Atk. 63] (depending on the test)

    Target: NPC Clarissa

    During this test, the Sorcerer was attacking NPC Clarissa using [​IMG] «Prominence» skill with different weapons which have the same M. Atk. 200 strokes were done for each test. Maximum and Minimum Damage are stated in the table.

    [​IMG]
    Sword of Magic Fog

    334

    408
    [​IMG]
    Priest Mace

    298

    443
    Additional information: Without damage spread, damage made by the attacker was 371 with each weapon.

    Summary: As it can be seen from the table, damage spread which appeared during strokes made by [​IMG] Priest Mace is more significant that the one, which was done by [​IMG] Sword of Magic Fog.

    Hi, nice test, thanks!

    one question regarding:

    what does it mean without damage spread?
    and what was the average damage on each weapon?

    Let's imagine, that each time you cast a spell, the damage is calculated as [Fixed damage] +- [Damage spread], where damage spread is calculated randomly but is limited. Experimentarium staff has access to GM commands, which are able to switch the spread off making the damage fixed all the time. Fixed damage is the average damage you are looking for.

    great information thx. So for pve a sword is much more value able, so mages can do all time 2-3 shot and not randomly 2-4 shot monsters

    I am still a sad panda cause there are no 2handed Mage swords or Duals with Matk on them.

    So if we want max Matk we need to use 2handed Blunt no matter what :(

    It's plain simple.

    Fighter sword
    Fighter blunt

    Stable dmg higher crit rate
    Unstable dmg low crit rate.

    Same goes for Mages

    Swords have higher mcrit and more constant dmg
    While blunts have more random dmg which can be higher then a sword but less crit rate.

    The dmg spread on Blunts is really big. at some point i am Mage critting monsters for 3800 and the other second on the same monster i am doing 2300

    So taking that. i suppose if i was to use a sword i may not reach 3800 but also not 2300 but somewhere close to 3000 as balanced result to a magic critical.
