ok, on family guy i want to add VA. what level should it be to get a good effect?

i do around 20k dmg with my ELS based on the amount of AC i go up against.

train VA up to MPB for maximum effect
train VA up to average melee damage for max exp efficiency

ok, anyone else have something?

slurpz said it better than anyone ever could.

Addendum: Don't bother training VA unless you can make it enough that you go negative (can happen).

Other than that, yep, slurpz has you covered.

Unless your MPB comes from your ranged weapon ;)

my ranged and melee are about the same right now.

What bartjan was hinting at is that MPB's from ranged tend to be misleading for the VA "rule-of-thumb" because of the temporary/defensive use of uber-ammo.

its debatable since there is dispell in play now.

Chet, would you please clarify what you mean by "going negative"?

QBsutekh137 April 20 2005 4:51 PM EDT

Very low VA levels have made people get negative returns, I believe. As in negative numbers. The solution presented has always been "train it higher". I have no idea, really, since it has never happened to me.
