Questions on Warg Strike Damage and eATK/Watk
« on: Apr 26, 2013, 06:51 PM »
I have few questions regarding the warg strike damage:

1) what are the attack types affecting warg damage? Weapon,status or equipment?
2) is warg strike damage influenced by %atck card (hydra, AK and etc.)?

Last 1:
3) how do i know whether  a particular card gives +eq ATK or +wATK
(eg; procellio gives 25ATK, zipper gives 30ATK  but it doesnt mention which part they are contributing in, eqATK or wATK)

All cards/equips give wATK. sATK is only generated from STR and in this case DEX since you're using a Ranger which increases your wATK by 0.5% per DEX. Warg Strike is not influenced by % modifications from Hyrdra, but is from Kingbird. It also ignores all % reduction but element.

Kingbird is Archer Skeleton.
I don't know if it's still true but I think that Archer Skeleton used to work on both atks - watk and satk - as a mod, something like that, and that's the reason to work.

There would be no difference in damage, the optimal card would be Beholder Master since it gives a large amount of DPS in a +14 Elven Bow. Only % mods that call general protocols rather then specific information increase Warg Strike damage, meaning Hydra's +20% to demi will no effect it, but Kingbird's +10% to long range physical will. Combined with White Wing Set and Elven Arrows can make Rangers ridiculously powerful in WoE with a full party dedicated to Dancing with Wargs.

Edit: To be more specific in what I referred to as "elemental" reduction would be GR reduces it by 30% because it's considered a Neutral skill (there's no longer a Misc element in RE like with Soul Destroyer's Magic Damage). Warg Strike completely bypasses Deviling's -50% damage from Neutral.

(This is all information from playing on officials, I think rAthena is still pretty lacking in relevant technologies to work the same equations as whats live on officials)
