I am so glad that somebody finally picked this guide back up :) good luck and I'm glad that you included a BM section that should clean up the comparison request forum a bit

It is important in any BM section to always include Greater Charm as a baseline.

thanks.

Good to see the guide up-to-date again. Congrats.

What about the spellcraft series?

... and ArchMage research

@sugar: Oops I totally forgot

@BexnDan: I was planning on making a Void Section. That will come in the next update.

By the way, Chao suggested I change the format so that each element section will list the spells by damage and then efficiency. Would that be easier to read or should I keep it the way it is?

Bah, somebody beat me to the chase. Yar, listen to Chao. I was planning on mentioning that today...Oh, also, you may wish to bold the spells for aesthetic tastes and whatnot. Though, that is totally up to you and not exactly necessary. It just may make it more easy to view.

Ok I added Spellcraft, AMR, and Greater Charm. When I find my calculator I will try to get Manasplosion in there.
When I have time I will change the format a little.

EDIT: I will be in Florida until a week from Tuesday so I will update this sometime next week or weekend (the weekend of May 1st/2nd)

Increasingly it is important to look at higher MOBs. I think you can just shorted the list at the end to alter rankings based on higher MOB lists rather than breaking out each into your overall guide again. I would therefore just do the last ranking after a sort in your spreadsheet after adjusting the MOB to 65. I am certain that you are going to see some pretty significant shifts in your top 20.

Why don't people ever read before posting?? Seems ridiculous to me...

Ah, Sugar, you weren't there when Jimi, Mt. Ev, and I talked about leaving the Guide at the present Mob as it is. After all 63 MOB isn't even a set standard post-sweep; more or less an arbitrary number. I'll leave you the implications of what would have to be done if post-sweep, the set MOB is something else instead of the typically suggested 63.

AQ Guides/Pedia


Fwying Wonder's Pedia Entry is out. It deals an average of 315.75 if all hits connect. It definitely loses in terms of efficiency to Apotheosis, I think, but the damage is much higher.

If all hits connect, the efficiency is 0.87. An insignificant amount, if you ask me.

Wait, I'm confused here. I trying to decide between Damnation and the new Mayhem Burst. So I look at this page since its the only one that includes MB so far.

My problem is that Damnation V is listed here as doing 397 damage, while in the standard Darkness spells comparison for a level 130, it is listed as having 315.505 damage (post-sweep MOB, but even the pre-sweep was only 339)!

I can understand and cope with a small difference in comparisons, but 80 points difference?
And its the same with Mana Efficiency. Damnation V is listed here as having an insane Mana Efficiency of 1.30 DPM, whereas the Darkness Spells Comparison has it listed as a 0.947.

Could someone clear this up?

infuturity: This one takes into account Lucky Strikes / LUK.

Previous comparisons did not take into account Lucky Strikes. 200 LUK -> 200/20 = 10 LUK damage per stat. Presweep we have 100% Accuracy so for Damnation V with 1160% stats that gives us an extra 116 damage, or an average of 58 damage. 339 pre-sweep + 58 = 397 DPT.

The mana efficiency is obviously a byproduct of doing higher damage because of LUK while the mana cost remains the same.

Friendly!


Take note that Section 1 compares spells with PURE MAGE stats in mind, that is 200 in Int/Dex/Luc, as opposed to Beastmaster Mages who have Charisma instead of Luck. Now, since the Lucky Strike update Luck actually increases your average damage, which is why a Pure Mage deals much higher spell damage on average. Efficiency goes up accordingly.
Older guides usually don't account for Lucky Strikes, this one is the most up to date though and has the correct numbers.

Ok I finally realized that there were 12 Frostval Spells, 4 of which are mage spells at lvl 70 or above . So I added 8th and 11th day, both suffering greatly at 0 Luk.
I also added the Wonder spells, which as expected topple NA for the crown, and even the lvl 75 one beats IU for a pure mage. Definatly a good buy. Also the accuracy is good enough that it stays in the same spot on the list at 45 MOB regardless of Luk.
