Test 3 – naked with dinky wand
Changed wand to the Shadow Wand – a level 9, 10-19 damage speed 1.40 wand. It ‘breaks’ about every 2200 shots and needs repaired.
For naked stats see test 2. Key numbers: spell crit (from Int) 3.05%; melee/ranged crit (from Agi) 5.08%.
Results so far – to first repair:
- Hits 2244
- Crits 73
- Resists 40
- Total attacks 2357
- Total successful attacks 2317
- Resist Rate 1.6971% – !!!!
- Crit rate oldstyle 3.0972%
- Crit rate percent of hits 3.1506%
The miss rate is absurd, and makes me mistrustful of all the other numbers. I’m also suspicious of the very large drop – DROP – in crit rates (both types) from the Netherwing wand (test 2). However, I’ve got two types of logging going and both give me the same numbers, so what you see is what I got.
I will run two tests tomorrow – a repeat of each of the naked wands: once with the Nether till I kill Boom, once with the Shadow till it breaks. Separate logs. I’m going to see if the results are within range of their predecessors. I begin to suspect that a critical variable for wands is the wand level.
If I get the opportunity I will also do a Naked Smite battle. An hour and a half to two hours of pressing a single button every 2 seconds is… low on my fun meter, but this has my hackles raised. I am certain that wand and spell use at least some different variables.
