# AMF effectiveness Q (in General)

## [SoV] Shiv[/me Forge Stuff :D]July 19 2005 4:47 PM EDT

How do you find out/calculate AMF reaches its maximum effectiveness of 40%?

or....

How do you find out if your own amf is at its maximum potential?

AMF max is not 40% 1st off. second read your battle logs to see how effective it is 1.00 is max 100%

## QBBast[Hidden Agenda]July 19 2005 4:55 PM EDT

When you see this:
Leo cast Antimagic Field on War (1.00)
Leo cast Antimagic Field on Death (1.00)
Leo cast Antimagic Field on Plague (1.00)

you know it's working. Then just stop training it til it falls to (0.99), then train back to (1.00). Then you know the threshold. Now, do that for whomever is the biggest hemorrhoid on your fightlist. :)

/me doesn't really _do_ math. The math on archery is _known_ and I still use this method.

An AMF facing an equal level DD spell works at 50% (0.50).

It can go down to zero, or up to 100%.

But I don't know what ratio you need for either.

## smallpau1 - Go Blues[Lower My Fees]July 19 2005 6:35 PM EDT

Antimagic Field: 113,753/107,315 (?)

So its not like archery where it has (1.00), but it will never reach its maximum potential until the people you fight stop training their DD...lol. That how i see AMF works, but i may be wrong...=/

As it's effectivness isn't calculated until the fight starts (as it's based on your level versus thiers) you don't see the 'effect' displayed until the start of the fight, as Bast has posted.

There you can see exactly how well your AMF is working against your opponent and it will stay exactly the same, as long as you don't increase your AMF and your opponent doesn't increase thier DD spell.

from what ive been told the 40% cap is on how much damage the mage can take back from amf on what they would have done had there been no amf

## [SoV] Shiv[/me Forge Stuff :D]August 3 2005 5:05 AM EDT

then can any1 confirm Dragon Slayer's reply "from what ive been told the 40% cap is on how much damage the mage can take back from amf on what they would have done had there been no amf ".

then it would be like a backlash of 40% maximum right?

## PhaeteAugust 3 2005 8:42 AM EDT

Yup.

The maximum a mage can expect back is 40%
It's however not a cap but a constant used in the backlash damage formula.
So that 1.00 effective AMF should give 40% backlash, but 0.50 effective AMF just 20% backlash afaik.
