Question about Guardian Angel (in New players)


NIG August 9 2008 12:02 PM EDT

I just found this game, and love it. I first came into chat thinking..wow..no graphics, this really sucks. Then I started reading the wikipedia. I passed at least 4 hours just reading all the wonderful different spells, tattoos, and different armors. I really love the strategy part however, but some things don't really seem right to me.

For example:

Luther takes damage from his own Magic Missile (66)!
Luther's Magic Missile hit Onirod [543]
Onirod's Guardian Angel smote Luther (32)


The wikipedia states that

1. Guardian Angel must be 2.5x damage to retaliate.
2. Guardian Angel returns 60% damage.

My Guardian Angel is just about level 3000 at the time of this fight, which is much more than 2.5x543.

Of course, the opponent does have a Tattoo of Endurance, which means a maximum of 75% damage reduction.

Look at this: The damage returned by Guardian Angel should have been 543x0.6=326 damage. Let us assume that the Tattoo of Endurance has a maximum effect of 75%. This means that my Guardian Angel should have given out 82 damage instead of 32.

Am I missing something here? I've looked through the wikipedia, but I can't find anything else besides armor, which wouldn't make that much of a difference.

The opponent's character name is Lex Aeterna, and the user Astirling

Watch the casting at the beginning of the fight: dispel magic.

Also, doesn't armor also reduce the GA damage?

In addition I believe that at lower levels effects are reduced somewhat

NIG August 9 2008 12:12 PM EDT

Oh...Booooo Dispel magic. (I hope I can get that Rune of Solitude in Auctions).


Banana takes damage from his own Fireball (953)!
Banana's Fireball hit Apple [721], Papaya [449], Durian [465], Mango [740]
Apple's Guardian Angel smote Banana (236)
Papaya's Guardian Angel smote Banana (122)
Durian's Guardian Angel smote Banana (278)
Mango's Guardian Angel smote Banana (194)


This looks weird too...as it Guardian angel doesn't scale with damage.

(Had to replace some names with fruit so that I can post) >.>

And no, I didn't mix up the names when I replaced them.

Use the HTML option when posting, and surround the offending words with <nospellcheck></nospellcheck>. Don't abuse or BAD STUFF happens

Eh, I won't bid against you on the RoS but Rootski might :S

NIG August 9 2008 11:39 PM EDT

Yea, some other person bid against me...whatever. I find this game rather boring now, because it'll take too long to get the armor/weapons for my planned strategy.

Cube August 10 2008 12:04 AM EDT

It's because of armor. Armor has a very very small fixed damage reduction.

if your complain about the game being slow now you will surely sell out then your bonus ends -.- ne way your rewards should start increasing soon
