damage of weapons???

Post by michellembrodeur » 09 Oct 2005, 17:03

The short sword says +100 damage. Does that mean, it adds 100 to the amount it gave or a random amount from 1-100 added.

Because I am doing like 50-80 damage at lvl 12 with a short sowrd. Should be like 101-129. since I was doing like 29 damage with a dagger that is +15 damage.

the current server software is a ragnarok online server emulator (which will be replaced VerySoon™ by our own). so i think it uses the damage calculation from ragnarok online where a 100 damage weapon adds between DEX and 100 to every attack (where DEX can't be higher than the weapon damage).

btw, what happens if dex>100 (never played ro...)? weapon unusable? monster gets healed :roll: instead of damaged?
my bet would be, simply always +100 damage, though "weapon unusable" would be a good solution too (since a pro swordfighter would probably rather die laughing than actually using a beginner's "butter knife" as a weapon ;)).

nope, in that case the weapon would always add 100 damage.

And since it's eAthena we're dealing with, the probability of the server crashing raises with stats that aren't supposed to exist in the environment.

Stats....

+100 ATK, this adds 100 to your MAX attack
dex ads to the minimum attack.

and e-athena is highly capable of accepting stats as high as 255

the next best thing in the 2^(n*8) series would be 65535, but to keep the numbers "round" i'd say 10000 (or 9999 if we want to max out the available 4-charater display space). no wait, actually, i'd say -use- 65535 but -display- 9999 (round(actual_value*1.5)) thus allowing for a far superior internal granularity for attributes.

one byte can have 2^8 = 256 different states. thats why 255 is the highest number you can display with one byte (don't forget that there has to be a state which means 0). when you want to use 999 as a limit you would have to use 2 bytes for the number. that would double your memory use.
