I need your help!

Edited by dashgalaxy86 at 2013-2-6 17:45

Hello! I am working on extrapolating the formulas from the game, but to do that I need character cards. Lots and lots of characters!
We'll do this in a few different threads over the course of a couple weeks and I'll crack different formulas over time. Today we're starting with the simplest ones.

Those are the relationship between Power and DPS, Skill and Crit Chance, and Fortitude and Damage Reduction. I realize there's more to be cracked, but we're going to start with this. I already have a very good start, but to verify my results I need to see your character cards.

Here's what you do! Strip your characters completely nude so that all buffs are gone. Hit "C" to get to your character card. Take a screen shot or write down all your stats and post them here. I'll come up with a formula or at least identify a trend that can explain stats clearly. I'll post my findings here and also in the Mechanics thread. Then we'll continue. Eventually we'll have results for everything, like loot drop chance, how much pets affect stats, and much more. Thanks for working with me!

alternatively, you can ask the devs, im sure they are willing to cough up some of this info

I did. They basically said they didn't want to give out formulas but they wouldn't stop me from finding them myself. So far I've got most of the mechanics cracked with some help from Origami, but please feel free to keep the data coming!

Since I have great interest in theorycrafting and whatnot, I shall help.  Give me a day or so and I'll have a SS.

Origami and I have already figured out a bunch of the mechanics, but extra data will help a lot!

Ok, here's a char SS.  Just level 7 though.

There you go man ..
Happy to help :)

BTW ... Does anybody know - what is "Skill" stat for? What does it affect exactly? The power of skills that we use or mb the chance  of a critical hit or something?

Skill is used to determine Cunning skills effects as well as chance for Crit IIRC.

We know this. We know a lot! We're deciphering the mathematical formulas behind the game's mechanics.
Skill is one of the easiest stats. Every 6 skill adds +1% chance to crit. Aside from that, it makes cunning skills more powerful on a case-by-case basis.
