115's. Worthless?

    I have heard much chat about skills only being effective and getting bonus's when 100 or above, but only incriments of 10. :grouphug:

    Is this twaddle? Will i get more damage from 107.6 Tactics as apposed to just 100? Or do i need to get to 110? Is 115 worthless? What about 118.9 etc..:please:

    Anyone out there help me?:confused:

    The rumour you have heard is in fact truth
    Most amazingly for a UO rumour

    As you can see from this table for Tactics

    10 60%
    20 70%
    30 80%
    40 90%
    50 100%
    60 110%
    70 120%
    80 130%
    90 140%
    100 150%

    115 & 105 scrolls will be worth quite a few points in the forthcoming hand-in however

    Ehm... the fact that the table only shows damage increase in steps of ten doesn't mean that there aren't any intermediate steps.

    In fact, having 115 Tactics does increase your damage compared to 110 Tactics - I just verified this personally on Test Center.
    There are a few skills where the effects change in jumps of 10 points, but for most of the skills every 0.1 is potentially useful, and Tactics is one of those skills.
    The rumour is false.

    P.S. Of course, it is possible that with certain weapons you may notice no change in damage when going from 110 to 115 because the increase in damage might be less than 1 hit point and be rounded down to 0, but this is another matter...

    *sighs*

    Ok, I was wrong, my apologies

    I've been playing with the damage calculator on Stratics, I advise you to do the same

    Having 5% more Tactics (or Swords or whatever) does make a difference to your damage range, but the actual difference is so slight that no-one will ever notice

    eg On a random test with 80 Tactics the damage range was 24-28
    with 85 the range was 25-29

    So basically every 5 or 6 hits you will do 1 more damage

    Well thx for the feedback.:ten:

    I was going to add them to the clean up, but now maybe i will munch those 115's after all.

    I had told him this via vent... :bdh: But i guess it either got lost in the translation :bdh: (from Scottish to English) or you thought i was telling you lies (again) :bdh:
