A way to judge how weapon NW affects PR? (in General)
September 26 2006 3:55 AM EDT
My Morg, 14 mill NW. If I started a base char, when would I be able to equip it
to fall under weapon allowance? Is there some sort of formula?

Weapon NW allowance is 1.5 of all your XP.

It also may be 2/3 of your XP, the value listed in the Wiki.
Ignore that line. In the same section in the Wiki, there are links to two threads that are actually accurate, as opposed to the 2/3 number.
To make it easier for you, here:
Weapon PR = 0.4096 * (Weapon NW)^0.8026
Plug in 14m to that, and you're left with 222,763 (rounding up to the nearest integer, as the CB standard is.) That means that your Morg will add zero PR at an MPR of 222,763. This is still off, but it's FAR more accurate than calculating 2/3 of your total XP.

2/3 * total xp + total xp = WA
that is approximate and easy to understand. that is, using fexy's numbers on the train screen, its within the mil, close enough :P

Ok thanks for the further clarification!
That's a pretty small MPR to equip a weapon that's the number 20 of it's class. Especially as most of that NW is in the X.....
Oh well..cool, looks like I wouldn't have to wait too long before I could use it again if I started an NCB....

I must remember to look in the Wiki, and more importantly, remember what I read when I look there. I'd ploughed through Roy7's posts when I was running my last UC guy. Must be getting old....
Flamey, if you're using the grease monkey script, not only is the WA calculation on the train page WAY off, but the total XP is not even close. I CM'd him and told him, but I don't think he fixed it. Roy7's formula is accurate, easy, and deals with numbers that the game provides (NW and MPR).
As a note, JW, I'm not sure if WA deals with MPR or VPR, so I just train all before calculating it.

WA deals with XP, not *PR.

No problem with VPR on my team Nightstrike, I can't leave xp untrained. It's a compulsion!!!!
Yes, bart, but MPR is a function of XP. The fact is, roy7's numbers work. Your other method, despite being advertised by Jon, gives a result that's WAY below what it could be.
