Damage Formula for Anatomy Bonus

  1. The formula to calculate the damage bonus from the anatomy skill has been posted two different ways, and if I do a Google search I can still see both calculations. There used to be a stated 5% damage bonus for GM+ skill, but that reference has been removed from both UOHerald playguide and Stratics calculator (which used to include this reference).

    In the formula currently listed,
    Anatomy Damage Bonus = (skill/2+5)

    This is what it used to read on Stratics:
    The Damage Bonus % = anatomy / 6 (+ 5% if anatomy at 100.0 or higher)

    If the first formula is correct, it would imply there is a 5% Anatomy bonus ever for zero Anatomy skill! Or, if that weren't true, then Human JOAT would get the 5% bonus for the implied 20% Human skill.

    At one time, one of the developers commented on this and confirmed that there was a 5% bonus for the GM+ skill. Has this calculation changed, or was there never a bonus? Which is correct?

    The damage increase from Anatomy is Skill / 2 as a percentage, plus 5% if your skill is GM or above. At 90 Anat the bonus is 45%; at 100 Anat it is 55%; at 120 Anat it's 65%.
