    Inspire adds DI% but it seems that it is limited by the 300% DI cap when the buff is on a player. Was this intended? or should the addition DI from the song able to go above the DI Cap?

    The buff does work on pets really well but while the SDI works for casters' added damage, DI bonus does nothing for dexxers if cap already reached.....

    how are you testing this?

    maxing out your dexxer then attacking something static, then adding the inspire to compare the changes in numbers?

    cause i was backing up a team of archers on one of the new high sea perrlesses and it seemed like it was adding the DI.

    Tested with following:

    100% DI from items
    100% DI from super slayer
    100% DI from perfection


    Damages were noted once perfection has been reached.

    Then the buff was added and the damage seems to be about the same.

    Inspire shouldn't currently allow exceeding of that 300% cap.

    I think it is pretty sweet how often Logrus replies with formula specifics, very cool for us number crunchers who try to maximize :thumbup:

    As a player I find that knowing the numbers helps me tweak and plan templates to maximize certain benefits. So I try to share that stuff as much as possible.

    Thanks Logrus, by replying to these posts you are letting us know that you actually care about us. It is also refreshing to know that some of you out there still play UO. Regardless of all that, the info on the 300% damage cap is very useful...
