Unclear on Beleg's gloves bonus... (in General)


Sickone September 16 2009 11:23 AM EDT

The wiki and the item list tooltips states 1.5% per level, however I'm fairly certain it's 3% per level (due to the fact I'm using some myself, and until recently I didn't have a melee weapon, so I could observe the damage difference during normal fighting).

I know they USED to be 3% per level but they were ALSO being affected by a bug applying the bonus twice (so it was closer to 6% per level)... but that bug was fixed.
So, was the "bugfix" actually reducing their "base" damage improvement to 1.5% per level, yet still the intended 3% per level is applied (i.e. the bug still exists, but the effect is the correct one) ?

Anybody know for sure ?

When did they go down to 1.5%?

AdminTitan September 16 2009 12:20 PM EDT

Ranger changed it in the wiki to 1.5%. I thought it was 3% too. However, some people in chat when I first brought this up about three or four months ago thought otherwise. I was going to do some testing, but I was too lazy.

I cannot find the exact changelog, but I swear there was one where BGs dropped damage from 3% to 1.5%.

BluBBen September 16 2009 12:37 PM EDT

Wasn't it dropped from 4,5% to 3%?

the bonus was applied to two places meaning a +10 belegs would get +60% damage

but its 3%

Well, looks like I need to beef up my BGs.

QBRanger September 16 2009 1:02 PM EDT

Ah that could have been it. A 1.5% drop per + but it was from 4.5 to 3.0.

I am very sorry if my wiki change caused confusion.

Then Jonathan himself is not correct either:

When you hover over the link of Beleg's Gloves, it says the following:

Base AC 3 -2 magic. 1.5% ranged damage bonus for each plus. PR weight 0.15. Unforgeable.

Thanks Shade, that is where I saw it.

Here's the story. It was originally intended to be 1.5% per +, but the bonus counted twice for a total of 3%. It was never changed to work as intended if I remember correctly, so it remains at 3%.

So now is it supposed to be 1.5 or 3%? There should be a button that we can press in game that would ring Jon's doorbell >:)

"Here's the story. It was originally intended to be 1.5% per +, but the bonus counted twice for a total of 3%. It was never changed to work as intended if I remember correctly, so it remains at 3%."
Actually, it was twice 3% for anywhere between 6-7 when I called attention to it, so unless it was changed since then, it's 3%/+.
