Feedback needed: 115 Tactics vs. 120 Tactics

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Seismic, Sep 2, 2008.

    I am trying to finish my ABC archer and was planning to eventually go 120 Archery/120 Tactics/120 Bushido but I can't and won't afford those for quite awhile :). So in lieu of this, I am going 115 for all, with already purchasing a 115 archery scroll.

    Conner mentioned that since tactics damage increases by ten percentage points. 150% at 110, 160% at 120.

    So is there ANY benefit to going 115 until I can afford a 120 scroll?

    Or should I just buy a 110 Tactics scroll until I can afford a 120 scroll?

    Help! Save me some coin if the impact is minimal to nil :lick:

    You might want to try out the Warrior Forum. There's alot of good information there.

    Regardless, here's my take on Tactics:

    First, the best information I've found on Combat can be found at http://uo.stratics.com/content/arms-armor/combat.php

    Based on that information, Tactics Damage Bonus = Tactics รท 1.6 (Add 6.25% if Tactics >= 100)

    So if you were swinging a weapon that did 18-20 damage, then,
    100 tactics would increase the damage to 30-33
    110 tactics would increase the damage to 31-35
    115 tactics would increase the damage to 32-35
    120 tactics would increase the damage to 32-36

    So I'd say GM is OK for now, since you are only losing 2-3 damage compared to Legendary.
     
  3. The information I gave him was based on this:

    FORMULA: % of Base Damage that is Dealt= Tactics + 50

    I was 10% off, but the difference between GM Tactics and Legendary Tactics is 20% of the base damage. If this formula is still correct, that would give 115 Tactics a 5% increase over 110 Tactics, and 15% over GM.

    not to hijack your thread, but how are you raising your bushido? I am in the process of building an ABC myself and at this rate (you know EoO, lightning strike and concecrate weapon) my taming and provoke are going to be 120 three times over by the time I GM bushido. What is your trick? I don't mind spamming things for a day.... I must be doing something wrong. archery going up nicely on Ogre lords or rottens.... How do I raise Bushido faster? By the way, with 110 tactics you hardly miss out on any damage points, only difference is the occasional extra high damage hits. Your peak is not as high, but on average I hardly notice a difference... I guess that is to reitterate previous posters.

    Thav, rather than going with EoO and Consecrate when trying to raise your bushido, just honor and lightning.
     
  7. Go to the Yomatsu Mines. Go past the Dull Copper & Earth eles, past the single Warrior and Earth Ele in the 1st "room", to the 2nd "room" where you will find 2 Warriors. Warriors take a while to kill, and the respawn rate is pretty decent, so by the time you have the second one dead, the first has already respawned. There's literally no time at all that you don't have one Warrior to beat on, so it's non-stop. Make sure to Honor each one, and use a good Stamina Leech/Mana Leech weapon. You'll hit 120 in no time just using LS.
