    awhile back they nerfed ds to something like 35 and i think i was able to put gm track on and hit for just above 40. in the last week i have been hit 1 on 1 with over 65+ in one DS by 3 different people. i woulda said it was a fluke but now i know there is something to it. anyone know?

    how peeps doin this?
     
  2. You've stumbled across an exploit, obviously. Even a UO pvp god (ie. Archer Class) can't do 65+ in one single hit (to all 70s resist).

    Only thing I can think of is tracking you for extra 10 dmg and stacking ds for slightly extra dmg, *shrugs*

    Shouldnt do as much as 65dmg tho, but fyi you dont need actual tracking skill to deal extra damage, just have to succesfully track someone even with JaoT tracking skill and it will count.

    Example 1: (What most people run)
    120 Ninja
    120 Stealth
    100 Hiding
    20 Tracking (JOAT Human)

    Hits you for 52 point hits after maximum tracked (3-4 screens?)



    Example 2:

    120 Ninja
    120 Stealth
    100 Hiding
    100 Tracking

    Hits you for 60 points after maximum track (3-4 screens?)



    Also; Evil Omen DOES increase the damage. So assuming its 25% like other spells; its PROBABLY possible to hit with a 75 point death strike.


    But; think of it this way.

    Example 1:

    52 point + omen 25% damage (which is 13) = 65 points of damage.


    Example 2:

    60 point + omen 25% damage (which is 15) = 75 points of damage.




    Hope that helps.


    **All of these damage are CONFIRMED by me EXCEPT the 100 tracking/evil omen 75 point hit.

    Hit spell could also add in a extra 4-7 or more.

    All of which explains why I've died to death strike a number of times lately...

    if they use tracking skill on you, have that arrow following u and have the skill like in example two up there they will hit for even more than 60. it is the trade off for an all offensive template but it hits hard... the last key factor is having an active track on you.

    Not being able to move is a bit of a bummer when you are being ganked 6 on 1, and/or you've been disarmed... :)

    And for me, by the time I hear the sound effect indicating the Death Strike special, I'm in mid running stride & have already taken a few steps. I've tried pulling finger off the mouse button as soon as I hear that "HIYYYY-YAAAAH" but its usually to late. HAH!

    Technically; this isn't true either.


    A. After they track you; they can run 2 screens away; and 2 screens back; allowing for max damage DS. You don't move; but you are still screwed.

    AND/OR

    B. Stacking Death Strikes (3-4 I Believe; a lot of mana but..) allows you to get hit with the damage you are suppose to get hit with EVEN if you don't run.

    If you are getting ganked 6v1 and you are disarmed. you should die. deathstrike should be the least of your concerns at this point lol

    Well, it would be nice to have the option to, you know, RUN AWAY!

    *singing*
    Brave, brave, Sir Robin,
    Bravely ran away...

    But no, Sir Robin is going to die a ghastly death because he got hit with a death strike...

    Random Note.. Best way to fight deathstrike(s)

    Non Tracking : Run though it and Heal pot Afterwards.
    Tracking : Dont run through it, Go for some sort of Disarm or Such. Spirit Speak Spam, Evade.. Ect

    Teleport as a mage. It doesn't count as moving. :)

    I have a herder who can defend himself by hitting people for 103Ds's

    When you count the 14 from hit, then the 14from hit lightning then the 60 from DS[GM tracking] Then if im lucky the evil omen cast...well, lets just say if ive hit once to disarm them first...its over!

    2hit kills almost every time!

    Edit: This is ridiculous! I can actually beat full blown pvp chars with a stealth herder!

    I think what he meant was when you hear the DS sound, don't move ;P. Of course, that's hard to do unless you're in a 1 v 1. I haven't really tested teleport though, hm.

    This is interesting....

    Because of the 5 second delay, does it mean you can deathstrike and then cast evil omen to boost the DS damage?

    That could be devastating...
