Does anyone have HARD info on how this works? I have tested a 50 SSI Invasion HXBow in combination with a recently acquired full Assassin leather armour suit with 20 SSI. There is not supposed (Stratics) to be a cap on SSI although there is a cap on swing speed at 1.0 secs. Now: First assumption was that a total of 70 SSI with a 5 sec weapon speed box should have given a base weapon speed of 1.5 secs. With 150 dex/158 Stamina, I hoped to hit the swing cap of 1 sec when undamaged and at full stamina. In fact, at full stamina, I fire at 27/28 shots per minute (2.2 secs/shot). Without the Assassin suit and it's supposed 20 SSI, I fire at 24 shots/minute (2.5 secs/shot). Now neither of these are shoddy fire rates for a HXBow but its not quite the heavy machine gun effect I had been hoping for..;p This means that the improvement in fire rate between wearing the suit and not wearing the suit is only 0.3 secs per shot. The improvement is 0.3/5.0 (base weapon speed) or 0.06 - this is, within the granularity limits of the data set, suspiciously close to 5% - or the bonus I would have expected from wearing only 1 piece of the armour set. This pattern is consistent with all the bows I have tested. I thought I would post this and ask if there are any changes/adjustments/nerfs to SSI caps or any other related factors that I, as a returning player (6 mths)and born again nuuub, am unaware of. It may be that I am simply misinterpreting the bonus that the Assassin set is meant to provide - perhaps it IS only meant to give 5% with all 4 pieces present... If not, I need next to test whether or not I get that 5-6% improvement in swing/shot speed from wearing only 1 piece of the armour set instead of 4. In view of the poorish resists and lack of other bonuses, pretty much the entire attraction of the Assassin set lies in the SSI bonus. If it is only 5% - it's worthless. Looking forward to hearing from those in the know...but please, HARD info only. Don't speculate.
