    I am not sure about the calculation of the weapon damage, so any help would be nice.
    Taking as exemple my ABC archer, at the moment 100 tactics, 90 anatomy and 89 strenght (I know : a little weak) added to 100 DI on items give me a 245% bonus.
    Lightning strike as perfection can give a 100% bonus, for me that mean they will add something to the 245% bonus and I can gain only 55% as DI is capped at 300.
    On the other side, enemy of one is said to increase damage itself by 50% so I understand that the 50% will be applied to the final damage bonus included.
    That would mean that with my 20-24 heavy crossbow, lightning strike and perfection could give me 80-96 (300% bonus) and EOO succeeding at the same time as lightning strike and perfection (a lot of chance) would increase that to 120-144 ?
    I'am really not sure about what I say here, lol.
    Excuse me if this has been already explained, I tried a search but don't found.
     
  2. Tactics, Anatomy, Lumberjack and Strength are not included in the 300% DI cap. DI from items, slayers, Honor & Perfection, and Enemy of One are.

    using consecrate or a weapon designed for the mobs lowest resist is also not counted towards the cap of 300%, kind of obvious but felt I should mention that.

    I love imbuing!!! Side note - if anyone has all elemental damage weapons with 1 or no other properties PM me ill buy them on GL and catskills!

    Thanks Connor. So 120 tactics (I made a mistake) 90 anatomy and 89 strength give a 153 bonus (could be 160 with 115 tactics and 100 anatomy). With the 300 more given by items and the use of perfection, lighting strike and Eoo, i can hope a maximum of 453% bonus. Is that right now ?
    And I never said before (a shame) but thank you for your advises. My ABC archer and sampire were build with them and it's a real fun to play with !
    Well the next step is to raise my strenght using a PS. I have 150 dex and and 29 int at the moment with my 230 max stats. Just some gold missing :)
    Thanks Lynk too
     
  5. Tactics, Anatomy, Lumberjacking, and Strength all modify base damage. The rest of it modifies the modified number. It doesn't all just add up together.

    You're very welcome. All of us here are more than happy to help.

    I'd also like to point out that Lightning strike does NOT add a damage bonus. Lightning strike as a % chance (depending on bushido skill level) To do a critical. The critical adds no damage, just ignores the resist of the target. This is easily seen when figthing something with high resists where you only do 12-15 damage at 300% damage increase (items spells and slayers, ect) And when you hit a crit, you could end up doing 100. I don't know where people got the "100% damage increase" from crits, you get 100% damage increase from achieving perfection... not lighting strike.
