i was wondering after betaing all last weekend... on my pug the abilities read.... (Bootshine Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 130.) what is this potency calculated off of? STR/DEX/VIT? im trying to figure out how its all done in math so i know what to boost up if anything... any light on this would be very helpful... thanks in advance!
Think of potency as a percentage, so an attack with potency 130 does 130% whatever the damage formula is.
Tradeskills use potency in its abilities as well and it appears to be a percentage there too.
That's what I was assuming. 100 potency would be the equivalent of say, your auto attack, so 130 would end up being 30% more damage compared to your AA. However I think I recall AAs doing noticeably less than that, so it could be +100% damage for 100 potency and so on.
Potency values under 100 tend to be quite low, especially for DoTs.. unless the potency is for the total damage inflicted over the duration.
