DMG 38 Delay 190

Str + 6 Attack + 16

After Read a Topic about 38 DMG dagger And this.

What Banalaty said is true. EVERY swing you make has a +/- 0.4 Pdif attatched to it. Now let's say your base damage is 90 on a weaponskill that swings 6 times... like dancing edge, and your attack is capped at 2.0.

90 x 2 == 180 <----- Average damage per hit

90 x 2.4 == 216 <---- Maximum damage per hit

90 x 1.6 == 144 <--- Minimum damage per hit

144 x 6 == 864 <---- this is the theoretical minuim damage you will see with 6 "worst" rolls

216 x 6 == 1296 <--- This is the theoretical maximum damage you will see with 6 perfect rolls

180 x 6 == 1080 <---- This is the mean, or average weaponskill.

This is a variance of 432 points of damage. The average weaponskill will be in the ballpark of 1080, but with identical tp returns you can weaponskill once and hit 1150+ and do it the next time and get only 950. This is how dancing edge works, trust me I know. I've farmed birds outside whitegate many times and my own full return dancing edges work just like this. No food, no acid bolts, normal dagger combos (blau/sirocco or fane/blau). This is the damage formula. Your "testing" tells us nothing because you used a mob that can withstand a full tp return of 6 swings on a weaponskill with inherently high base damage and a very large variance of per hit damage.

By the way, damage + 5 == a maximum of 30 base damage across 6 swings.

30 x 2.4 == 72 <--- This is the greatest variance 5 base damage can give with 6 perfect rolls on dancing edge. Aside from the fact that perfect rolls never happen 6 times in a row, this is a very small fraction of the original spread and worthless for your tests.

Thanks MELPHINA and BANALATY for their Knowlege

The question is. Really this new weapon will be better, than a kila?

The Weapon Skill variation is a LOT. 4 more base dmg, little less delay will beat 16 attack and 6 str.

For get the Twashtar Is a titanic way. You need lots of help or even a ls for get it. And the Kila is a soleable Dagger. Maybe in 10 - 15 days with 2 - 3 hours working you can get that.

I will work first on the Kila then on the Twashtar. But in my opinion and a Tp burn party, dynamis, limbus, nyzul and einjerhar. The kila will be ahead because 16 attack and 6 str is awesome ^^ is like a mini mandau.

If did come ask here. Is because i dont want work for a weapon will be inferior, than the soleable one.
