*effective*increase of our power when gaining another strategem (since a major part of our strength as a "mage" isn't dependent so much on mp, as it is our strategem reserve).

We all know the formula to calculate the amount of time to recover a strategem is 4/x * 60 = y (x = max strategems, y = time to recover in seconds).

I'm thinking about strategem levels and how much of a difference they really make in our gameplay.

*Effective value is simply a tier ratio*>

The jump from 0 strategems to 1 is obviously undefined. (Why is "0" plural in our language anyway?)

The jump from 1 strategem to 2 is an increase in power at an effective value of 50%.

The jump from 2 strategems to 3 is an increase in power at an effective value of 66%.

The jump from 3 strategems to 4 is an increase in power at an effective value of 75%.

The jump from 4 strategems to 5 is an increase in power at an effective value of 80%.

**Theoretically**

The jump from 5 strategems to 6 is an increase in power at an effective value of 83%.

The jump from 6 strategems to 7 is an increase in power at an effective value of 85%.

To me, the math "seems" right on an intuitive level. I just "felt" like going from 4 to 5 was more empowering than going from 3 to 4.

This thread really has no purpose (other than my boredom with the SCH forum), so entertain me with your opinions about strategem levels.
