2roll test 2 – wands.
Again, level 70 NE Priest wanding Dr. Boom. This time I’ve stripped out all the attack variables I can.
No gear except the Wand of the Netherwing which adds +19 stamina and has damage (not crit or hit) and heal bonus.
- Str: 36
- Agi 50
- Sta 57+19
- Int 145
- Spi 158
- Shoot (wand) skill 350
- spell crit (paperdoll) 3.05%, all from Int.
- in case… ranged crit (paperdoll) 5.18%
Shoot only till Boom is dead. Results:
- 2762 hits
- 96 crits
- 59 resists
- 2917 total attacks.
- 2858 successful attacks.
Both models have a 2.0226% miss rate – well within the bounds of acceptability. 1-roll table says the crit rate is 3.2911%. 2-roll table says the crit rate is 3.3590%. Both are above the 3.05%, and this time it’s reversed as to which is ‘closer’.
As of now, with two tests giving reversed information, the
conclusions results are inconclusive. I know that level has an affect on crits, but don’t know the rate. And regardless, it fails to explain why on the previous test the crit rates of both were LOWER than the paperdoll value.
Insights are welcome.
Oh – next test will not be automatic (love autoshot wand) in case it’s a wand issue. I will be doing a constant smite. Lower level smite so as to get a longish baseline. I’m going to be hating it, but this has me puzzled. (And think, I could be grinding for gold and goodies…)
