    Dark Magic Test

    Post by lordgodofhell on Mon Dec 10, 2012 10:07 am

    Hello Forums

    Fish404 and myself ran a few dark magic tests and I think some of you will be surprised at the results. For others this will simply serve as a confirmation to your speculation.

    For this test we compared the damage of Dark Bead vs Crystal Soul Spear. We used a low str high Int mage with TCC in order to get all we could out of CSS while keeping Dark Bead fairly "weak" compared to what it can be with high str Manus Catalyst. We did this in order to better compare the composition of the ARs.

    Test Dummy Stats
    SL 115
    254 Physical Def
    470 Magic Def
    1147 HP
    160 Stamina

    Mage Stats
    SL100
    50 Int
    16 Str
    Using TCC
    Bellowing+Crown of Dusk

    With GMB and blocking with a Magic Shield Crystal Ring Shield, Dark Bead inflicted 109 damage.

    With GMB and blocking with a Strong Magic Shield Crystal Ring Shield, DB inflicted 0 damage.

    With NO GMB and blocking with Magic shield crystal ring shield, DB inflicted 367 dmg.

    With no GMB or blocking, Test Dummy was one shotted lol.

    With GMB and blocking with magic shield crystal ring shield, CSS inflicted 3 damage.

    With NO GMB and blocking with magic shield crystal ring shield, CSS inflicted 34 damage.

    Tanking CSS with no protections resulted in Test Dummy being one shot once again.

    Conclusions:
    -The stability increase of magic shield is based on your shields stability. I noticed using different shield stability resulted in different stamina reduction. That was tested against the Sanctuary Guardians.

    -Strong Magic shield still grants invulnerability.

    -Dark bead (and dark magic for that matter) does in fact inflict split damage physical/magic.

    Speculations
    - Raising Str will increase the physical damage, while raising Int increases the magic damage of Dark Sorc. This theory is based largely off of the Dragon Slayer Spear. Increase its Str, Dex, get increase in physical dmg. Increase its faith get increase in Lightning damage.

    Thanks for reading!

    They nerfed the spell duration in one of the previous patches.

    But it still makes the user invulnerable?
