If you are using a pet Daedric Prey is better than Haunting Curse however BSW is still better than Necropotence. With a lower LA weave accuracy, necropotence should be comparable or even better but as you pointed out if your pet accidentally dies in a fight things go bad for Necropotence. Also out of curiousity I checked if it was worth it…[Read more]
@ReXwithaT, Ya my templar simulations seem to be a bit below what is achievable. I’m not sure why there is yet. My first suspect is that for some reason my current magicka tends to be lower than expected so I’ll have to look at why that is the case and it’s impact on Radiant Oppression. I reviewed damage calculation and got reasonably accurate…[Read more]
1. It is not discernible from my simulations. With 2x Molag Kena, 5x Scathing Mage, 3 Moondancer and a Sharpened Inferno Moondancer on the front bar and a Sharpened Inferno Maelstrom on the back bar, I predict a mean DPS of 39485 (935). Swapping out the Moondancer for Infallible results in a mean DPS of 39465 (788).
2. No, even with…[Read more]
@tribunal4555, I found that Moondancer and Infallible are really close. From the table below which summarises the results of DPS simulation, with Moondancer (4) I estimate a mean DPS of 42082 while with Infallible (6) I estimate a mean DPS of 41981. This is with gold jewelry. I would expect similar’ish result for purple or blue. For this, I would…[Read more]
- 2x Groth 5x BSW 3x Moondancer 2x Sharpened Willpower Swords + Sharpened Moondancer Inferno Staff
Mean DPS: 36333
- 2x Groth 5x Moondancer 5x Julianos + Sharpened Lightning Julianos(Weapon Enchant) Staff
Mean DPS: 37303
- 2x Groth 5x Moondancer 5x Julianos + Sharpened Lightning VMA Staff
Mean DPS: 37337
For the Moondancer, it is assumed…[Read more]
Using 2 Ilambris, 5 Julianos, 4 Infallible (Sharpened Inferno), Sharpened Maelstrom Inferno back bar gives a mean DPS of 40779.
In comparison, 2 Ilambris, 5 Spinner, 4 Infallible (Precise Inferno), Precise Maelstrom Inferno back bar gives a mean DPS of 39536.
I think I am missing the purpose of your question. If you have a precise…[Read more]
This was what I was using for DW/Inferno staff
2 Grothdarr, 5 BSW, 5 Moondancer and VMA Inferno
A synergy event was provided every 15 seconds and it would only synergise if it did not have the Moondancer Spell Damage buff.
1: Blazing Spear, Puncturing Sweeps, Purifying Light, Reflective Light,…[Read more]
@FrancisCrawford, The gates opening means that your faction can go in and get the scroll. Scrolls can be carried to an allied Keep and deposited there for campaign buffs. It also lets you know when you can go in the gate and get the skyshard. I think your list covers most uses of AP except for maybe buying the Akaviri motif
Sure @Amasuriel. So I did two simulations
Gear: 2 Ilambris, 5 Julianos, 3 Willpower, Random sharpened staves
Mean DPS: 37494 (SD = 712)
Gear: 2 Martial Knowledge, 5 Julianos, 3 Willpower. Martial Knowledge sharpened staves
Mean DPS: 36126 (SD = 937)
And just a reminder from previous simulations
Gear: 2 Ilambris, 5…[Read more]
Twice Born Star is viable although not as good as Julianos. I would expect a DPS decrease of ~1% if you switch from Julianos to Twice Born Star.
By full Julianos did you mean 7 pieces of it? Engine guardian is not a suitable set for PvE, it would be preferably to use something like Molag Kena, Grothdarr or Ilambris. You can get a lightning staff…[Read more]
@Jeckll was quoted:
Ya, that’s right my simulation needs to be given a rotation and then it calculates it. I first tried something simple’ish based on what I learned from this thread. But it was not very practical because I had this as part of the rotation
Endless Hail -> Bar Swap -> Rapid Strikes -> Bar Swap -> Rearming Trap -> Poison…[Read more]
Oh I did not consider that since Ilambris and Minor Slayer from Moondancer are large contributors to DPS. Anyway, I ran your gear setup (5 BSW, 5 Necropotence, 1 Molag Kena) and got a mean DPS of 39623. Is there a reason for not going 5 BSW, 5 Necropotence, Maelstrom staff ?
I’ve updated the sorcerer calculations because there was a simulation error that resulted in all DPS simulations to be overestimated by around 2k. The error was because sometimes x-x ~ 1e-15 which leads to some abilities triggering twice. I had previously rounded most of these into 0 but I forgot to in one particular section causing an…[Read more]
Yes, all AOE damage is increased by 8% with a lightning staff but I do not think that is the main reason for the difference between DW and Lightning staff on your front bar. From looking at the output stats all abilities do less damage with a lightning staff on the front bar and it appears that the only reason a lightning staff is better on the…[Read more]
It depends how often you have that 17800 penetration really. Would you be able to estimate uptime of Infused Crusher and Alkosh to come up with an average penetration?
As an aside, my DPS simulations with DW with the gear you mentioned on a Target skeleton with Major Breach suggest a mean DPS of 36617 which I note it close to the value you have…[Read more]
@FrancisCrawford, I think your testing is right. Enchantment proc of light attacks
@decay, Thanks! It’s a really great addon and I can’t ask for much more. Most of the things I calculate are based on things I see in Combat Metrics. I can’t really think of any additional features that I need right now.
I like the leveling, group, raid and maelstrom sections. But my question is why Razor Caltrops and not Anti-Calvary Caltrops?
So are you not light attacking often which is that cause of your low Berserker uptime?
Haha I can’t copy and paste properly. It should have been 98 in Elemental Expert, 5 in Spell Erosion, 22 in Elfborn. It’s not too hard to get 30% off balance with just Blockade of Storms so if you have a few sorcs in there for good measure you should be good to go.
You’ll want to use the website and go to the Advanced tab and set the minimum CP limit of Thaumathurge to 75. Anyway, to answer your question it depends on how far away you are from putting 75 CP into Thaumathurge. If I assume 40% of my damage is from DoT and I’m just getting Major Breach, then my CP optimiser says to put 100 in Elemental Expert,…[Read more]
