Weapon Allowance and RoS 'DM Allowance' (in General)
March 16 2007 5:35 PM EDT
Currently I have:
jynnan tonnyx (named RoS) lvl 2,243,698
I have 2 questions:
- What is my actual Weapon Allowance?
- To what level and/or effect can I train DM. I know it depends on 1/4 of the tattoo level, but does it reduce the DM by effect or level?
Weapon Allowance is based on trained XP only. Does that total include untrained XP?

It should protect up to 1/4 of the level of your spells. That being said, it should be based on the effect of the DM, not the level.

"should" is not the verb I was looking for ;)
It's the trained XP I have. But just assume I have no untrained XP, if that matters.

A bit better then "might". I'm pretty sure of it. The only thing I'm lacking is empirical evidence. (I suppose that's not a small thing to be missing.)

I am positive it goes by effect, I tested it a while back

"Reduced RoS anti-DM effect to 1/4 of its level (from 2/5), effective after cache flush." is the most relevant Changelog entry. From this, it's clear (to me) that it is 1/4 of the RoS level, but unclear if it is compared to DM level or effect.
If anyone has a DM for which the level is above 1/4 of my tat level (583,361) but the effect below that number, then I could fight that char and see from my AS stats which one it is.
100,024,268 XP is an MPR of about 1,884,272
An MPR of about 1,884,272 is a WA of about $200,441,724
Give or take.

Your weapon allowance should be $169,541,134 based on your total XP.
Kultur, roy's equation is more accurate than the much more simplistic "xp * 1.695" method present in Verifex's script.
One thing is for sure -- Jon's statement that it's 2/3 of all your XP is dead wrong.

What is this Roy's equation?
Read the weapon allowance section here:
Read the two forum posts linked in that wiki entry. Roy7 gives a very thorough explanation of how it works, including his two equations to go back and forth between weapon NW and weapon PR.

Interesting. Thanks NS.
