    First let me say my head just don't do math, yet I know there's a swing speed cap.

    Is it possible to create? or is there already somewhere? a table to compare weapon speed, swing speed increase and swing speed cap?

    I would like to be able to look at see something like.
    Don't add more than #% ssi to a weapon with # base speed.

    Example using fictitious figures:
    Weapon speed = 2.25. Maximum % ssi to reach cap = 25%.

    That way I'd know which weapons not to try to add max ssi to?

    Or is it covered in the menu? I added 30% to a radiant scimitar. Was that foolish?

    Give me a sec, there was a table posted a long time back by Lynk.

    Its not 100% accurate but its as near as you need :)


    Edit:

    Found Link

    http://users.lmi.net/~noodle/netathene/guilds/Posts/

    Edit again:

    Swing speed increase "cap" is 60% So impossible to imbue.

    Thanks Petra!
     
  7. Petra,

    don't forget that Mana Leech and Life leech are tied into the max SSI that a weapon can have, and visa versa.

    The formula is: Max HLL or HML= (Base Weapon Speed*2500)/(100 + SSI)

    OR, if you want Max SSI:

    Max SSI = [(Base Weapon Speed * 2500)/HHL] - 100

    Example: You have a war mace (4.0 Base Speed) already with 75% mana leech. How much SSI can you add?

    Max SSI = (4 * 2500) / 75 - 100 = 33.333 or 33%


    If you add more than the 33% SSI, I *believe* it reduces your leech value by the same formula.

    I would not say that was foolish. With 30%SSI, a radiant scimitar (weapon speed of 2.5 sec) will swing at the maximum swing rate (of 1.25 sec) at 90 stamina (and above). Remember your swing rate is determined by your current stamina, not your dex or maximum stamina. Several attacks can lower your stamina, so it is always good to leave some wiggle room before you start swinging slower. Now if your warrior had 160+ stamina, that might be a bit too much.

    Stayin Alive,

    hehe mana leech? Oh yes, I forgot all about those things. They involve math. I don't do math :D. I put the mana leech on first, I swear I put 63% on, but now I've added swing speed and it's only showing 43%.
    I've wanted an undead slayer radiant scim for my Petra Fyde char for ages. I burned several bronze hammers trying for it without success. Now I'm building it. So far it has the slayer property, the 40% damage inc, 43% mana leech and 30% ssi.

    I have one more property I can add, but I'm not sure what. I can't have more than 28% life leech. That's when it hits 500 according to the menu, or I can have up to 23% hit fireball or lightning.
     
  12. Have you considered Stamina Leech instead of Life Leech? It's a godsend for my Sampire. In fact, I'd give up a bit of SSI on the radiant to increase both the HSL and HML. If not the HSL, then I would put lightning on it.
