# AMF to FB relationship. (in General)

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 1:09 PM EDT

Probably know but I decided to take advantage of untraining and do some tests. Got some pretty obvious results, but it may help tanks in preparing to go against tanks.

When AMF and FB are equal AMF casta at .50

When AMF is double FB then it casts at .74

When AMF is triple FB then casts at: .82

When AMF is quadruple then FB casts at: .86

When AMF is FIVE times larger then FB the FB casta at .89

Basically past doubling the AMF over the DD, you are wasting exp.

I will post in a few and see if MM, CoC, and decay have the same relationship.

## MiandritalSeptember 20 2006 1:13 PM EDT

yup, ~10x amf to DD ratio is needed for 1.00

BTW, exactly double is .75

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 1:15 PM EDT

Yeah those are rough. I didn't bother leveling off the extra exp from learning AMF.

old news? check the AMF chart at cbstuff.nl...

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 1:45 PM EDT

Pfah. Whatever lol. I just wanted to do this for me and for anyone who hasn't seen that stuff. Not everyone knows about cbstuff lol.

Perhaps you could extend it and fill in the gaps which I am missing?

i.e. make a scale of AMF effect from 1% to 100% ?

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 2:59 PM EDT

hmmm I can actually. But I need someone to retrain a character with ( I would say) 100k DD spell. No armor!

I can do that easily.

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 3:06 PM EDT

If you would, make it and let me know the amount of xp in it. Then I will start testing. Exactly what values do you need?

Done :)

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 3:58 PM EDT

np, i couldn't do what I wanted now anyway, but you can still catch those DD vs AMF things :)

## BootyGodSeptember 20 2006 4:08 PM EDT

Sakura has a base decay. so I was only off by x100 Bane :P

## Caedmon[Revenge of the Forgers]September 20 2006 8:00 PM EDT

Dare I even ask if we have solid evidence that AMF effects all four DD spells equally?

## QBsutekh137September 20 2006 8:37 PM EDT

I would say it does, though Decay's backfire has that whole halving thing going. So, Decay is definitely different in how it manifests itself. The application of AMF, however, appears to be consistent. Hidden differences would just cloud the "choice" issue, and in my experience, that is a hard-six that Jonathan doesn't roll.

## MiandritalSeptember 20 2006 8:48 PM EDT

Tigah cast Antimagic Field on Chupacabra (0.95)
Tigah cast Antimagic Field on Apollyon (0.95)
Tigah cast Antimagic Field on Leviathin (0.95)

Thanks to Mr. Pit Spawn, sute is correct

Tigah cast Antimagic Field on Sakura (0.97) at x20
Tigah cast Antimagic Field on Sakura (0.98) at x30

What's x20?

20 times as high AMF as your opponent's DD?

## MiandritalSeptember 21 2006 2:38 AM EDT

re mael:
Apollyon takes damage from his own Magic missile (121)!
Leviathin takes damage from his own Cone of cold (243)!
Those are equaled sized dd spells. So if I misintepreted you earlier, then you were correct. If I am misinterpreting you now, you are still correct. :)

## MiandritalSeptember 21 2006 2:39 AM EDT

I mean caed not mael, sry

## BootyGodSeptember 21 2006 10:19 AM EDT

Yes all DD spells are AMFed at the same level.

I made sure of that, especially with Decay.

## AdminQBGentlemanLoser[{END}]September 21 2006 10:28 AM EDT

AMF backlash formula is something like (I'm having trouble remembering it now!)

AMF% * 0.4 * DD Effect * Number of minions spell targets (1 or 5)

So at max 100% AMF, it will do at most 40% of your modified effect.

Decay is a little different

AMF% * 0.5 * Decay Casters HP at time of Casting
