    Statistics (Stats)

    Hello!
    This is my third post about pvp, I hope if you enjoe!
    This material is not definitive article about stats, remember others may not agree!

    PvP Guide for Trammies III


    Strength (str): Determines Max Health. Max Health = 50 + ( strength / 2 ). Strength also grants a bonus to weapon damage. Str *(.2) = %bonus to combat effectiveness. Strength also determines how much weight your character can carry. Each 1 strength is 3.5 more stones carrying capacity.


    Dexterity (dex): Determines Max Stamina. Current stamina determines bonus to attack speed: Swing Latency = 15000 / {[STAM+100] * WepSpeed}. Stamina also impacts the time it takes to use a bandage.


    Intelligence (int): Determines max mana and is a factor in some spell damage formulas. Each 1 intelligence grants 1 additional maximum mana.


    Stat Cap: Each stat has a limit of 150. Your combined total may not exceed nowadays 255 and you can more 5 if you use a Scroll of Valiant Commendation. (You will have max stats 260).


    So by now you're thinking, I'll be a pure mage who has no need for dexterity since I use no weapon and I will choose 105 str, 100 int, 50 dex to total out the cap at 255. Well before you do that it is extremely important to understand the spell Mind Blast and what effect it has on you based on your stats. Mind Blast is a spell that does damage based on your highest and lowest stat as shown:


    The damage formula for Mind Blast is [(Highest Stat - Lowest Stat)/2 not to exceed 40]. So if you have 100 str, 100 int, and 55 dex the formula filled in looks like this;


    [(105 str - 55 dex) / 2] = 25 points of damage

    (100 str - 55 dex) = 50

    [50 / 2] = 25


    To expand even further it is important to understand that Mind Blast calculates the damage to be dealt by using your current stats. So if an opponent were to cast clumsy on you first then attack with Mind Blast it would do even more damage. Let's assume that after you have been hit with clumsy your dex is 38,5. Using the same formula above with this new variable we will see that the damaged would hit the cap of 38 points. This is a 5th Circle spell that requires only 14 mana to cast and has the potential to do 40 points of damage, or nearly half of your life! Consider the implications this spell can have on your character and the stat choices you make! Mind Blast is the only spell that's damage is directly calculated by your total stats.

    Obs. So I do not have information’s about the new stats cap with a actually suits if can you’re dress…perhaps I need one post about it.


    The most common stats for PvP Mages and Tank Mages are:


    105 Strength

    105 Intelligence

    45 Dexterity


    This gives you a more balanced set of stats versus Mind Blast that is buffable to over 100 in priority stats. It will also gives enough stamina to use Stun Punch if the template allows for it without sending the character into a walking mode immediately.


    The most common stats for PvP Melee Classes are


    100 Strength

    110 Dexterity

    45 Intelligence


    This gives the warrior a better balances set of stats versus mindblast that is buffable to over 100 in priority stats. It will also give enough mana to cast some minor spells like cure, heal, buffs, and recall.



    There are no perfect stats to have that give you the best bonuses and protect you from Mind Blast at the same time. Use the calculations above to determine how much health you will have, how fast you will swing, how your mana regen will be affected, and what kind of damage can be dealt with Mind Blast when you are trying to decide on your final stats. It is important that you should be able to have 100 or greater in your two primary stats for your template after buff spells such as Strength, Cunning, & Agility or Bless. Intelligence affects your mana regeneration rate passively so the higher the intelligence you can have the more mana you will have at your disposal faster. Buffing your strength will give you more health and buffing dexterity will allow you to swing at a faster rate.You should always try to keep your stats buffed using magic or potions, and be aware of what debuffs have been cast upon you so that you can negate them. We will discuss buffs and debuffs in PvP in another post.


    Ps: How do I know what my basic stats is?

    Remove all your equipment and clothing, and see your paper doll these are your basic stats.

    This treatise I will not go into detail about stats after a full suit, which you get from certain combination of parts of a suit.


    Obs. Because I spoke only on mind blast?

    Because I cannot know what the combos that others use; generally beyond this if often use fire damage, so watch out for your health bar ... if necessary run as far as possible…sure! He will come behind you…then runs and try to heal as fast as possible!


    in the next post I plan to talk about the strategy of playing in a guild, I will talk about the importance of all members to use the program "Ventrilo" and UO map.



    See ya!

    Stat cap is 225. There is a +25 Stat Scroll you must obtain to reach 250. There is a 6 month time gate for the other 5 points to 255. And then there is a 5 point scroll you can obtain by killing Exodus.

    So if you're a new player you will be at a 35 point stat handicap. I think a lot of veteran players forget this when they write their stat heavy guides.

    I see the possibility of at least an article in these guides with just a bit of editing... Maybe a full blown guide.

    *some of the tips in these guides are difficult to impossible on Siege. My disclaimer.

    Aye! but I do not playing in Siege, sorry...I know very little about your shard and understand what you say, maybe I need to play a little there ... I think it would be fun, I heard that you are not sure nowhere.

    oh!:D... recently there was a patch changing ... it seems to me that now you start with 250 ...:grrr: ... I miss the time you started with 225 and had to grieve for four years to reach 250!

    Just know mspossi, I enjoy reading your guides. While no guide fits every situation, I find your material thought provoking. I hope you continue to put your thoughts and ideas into words in a way that is not belittling or pompous.

    no you still start at 225, my point is it is easy to get your hands on +30 worth of stat scrolls thereby setting your max for the first 6 months @ 255. After 6 months your cap will raise automatically to 260 if fully scrolled.

    That is only if your account not the toon you just created is less than 6 mo old. If your account is older than 6 mo and you create a new toon you will get the 5 points right then.

    yes exactly...if you review the entire thread you will realize I was correcting a comment that stated new players were at a stat handicap of 35 pts when they begin.

    You still haven't corrected anything though. New players are at a handicap of 35 points when they begin. A new player isn't going to have a +25 Scroll, +5 Commendation, and 6 mo account.

    I really find it hard to believe that players run around handing out 10 mil (paired) items to new players. Maybe occasionally they do.. but rarely.

    So stat heavy guides are harder for new players to follow.

    :cool: well in my paper doll, I have 260 points of overall stats for me to distribute in three stats to know: dexterity; strength; and mana ... we are talking about the same thing?
    You play in an official shard?
    if the answer is yes, make sure that their stats are not drilled; with disabled arrow, click it to stay on (up). :thumbup:

    If you don't get what I'm saying by now there's no point in going back to back multiple times. I just urge you to look up stats and caps and read up more before writing a guide that is so stat heavy meant to encourage people into something. Which maybe unintentionally targets returning or new players.

    When you're talking about a cap of 260/255/or 225, a 35 point handicap matters a lot.

    Gamer Goblin then you play with the wrong people on the wrong shards.....I routinely give away 10's of millions plus scrolls and suits and weapon to new and returning players.....so does virtually everyone I associate with

    Hell I gave 5 + 25 stat scrolls away in july alone! I cant count the number of 120 PS I give away to virtually anyone that asks. And I am certainly not alone....or unique in this. I know plenty of players that give away much more then I have.


    EDIT.....opps make that 6, just gave another one away last night.

    but what I'm talking about is the new status cap now is 255 and you with the scroll of the valiant you can 260, Now let me ask you: - Do you think I would put here untrue to confuse the new player?
    no! This is the third edition and will have two more, I'm confusing you guys?
    My intention is just the opposite ... I'm tired of seeing new player serving "shot duck" for not knowing how to face the situation of being an easy target in the felucca.
    You see my friend, no one taught me anything about the situation of being attacked by another player, all that I inform I learned here in the "firing line".
    I know what status you are talking about, but I think for not reporting anything about it; will cause you; the desire to post something about it, so I also learn something.
    I think in a game where a pvp to attack a blue, will find their match, that is something that is challenging ... not a slaughter of 0.8 seconds!
    It is not what we all want when we sit in front of the computer? :devil:

    You're spreading misinformation in the guise of a guide. At this point I think you're trolling though. LOL :troll:

    following this the other way, I think denigrate the information of others without having any basis is a total misinformation.
    and challenge someone to post something better, since you know so much.
    I play this game for 15 years, and accompany this forum to ten, never saw a post like this aimed to inform those who do not know how to stay alive felucca, but saw many people just like you; not to share; but only to want denigrate.
    They do not want or do not know anything, but are expert to bring disinformation; this friend in military jargon is "to shoot itself in the foot"

    I get that and agree. :) But if you want to help, help. Don't spit out misinformation and expect to be called out on it as a way to inform people. Instead of throwing out bad information and waiting to be corrected. Ask for the correct information. I just returned and knew what you were saying was wrong.
