    Tested Damage Increase based on Covenant Rank for GLS and LS

    Post by Federally on Fri Jul 06, 2012 11:36 am

    So me and DoughyBoy were chatting in Skype and whether or not ranking up in Warriors of Sunlight increased your Great Lightning Spear and Lightning Spear damage. He said it was untested so I figured I would do a quick test on the hollows around the altar and the hollow soldiers on the bridge. Here are my results, my magic adjust was 181 FYI with 30 Fth

    At +1 in the covenant so I could have both miracles:
    Hollows: LS did 439 and GLS did 488
    Hollow Soldiers: LS did 417 and GLS did 473
    Hollow Soldiers shield up: GLS did 189

    and at +2, well I could spell it out like above but it was identical numbers! So no increase whatsoever in any way.

    Side note, i'm surprised GLS damage wasnt higher.

    What about Sunlight spear?
    And on a side note, doesn't Sunlight spear do the same as GLS but is the better poise crusher. Never really used it much because it's too slow.

    +1 to get it, doesn't matter to use it.

    It does require 50 fth though. So it takes a dedicated fth build to use it.

    Could you test if Gravelord Sword dance is affected by ranking up in the gravelords, and if so by how much?

    These are the results from Rynn. At +0 we will say this is the base damage. If you are not in the covenant the dance does base damage - 10%. For every rank you have in the covenant its a approx a 10% increase in damage. So at gravelord +3 it does base damage +30%.

    Yeah, and dragon covenant gives you higher AR increase from the roar buff depending on your rank.

    Sweet info on the GLs, I am going to update the wiki. That's quite a hefty damage increase, particularly if it stacks with the usual other rings/buffs.

    I'm not sure how its calculated but it seems the difference increases as the strength of the monster increases. I wasn't that impressed with the damage improvement on the normal hollows but once it came to the soldiers the improvement was more. Considering cast time and uses are the same I'd agree its a good improvement.
