RoS Question. (in General)

Gandalf March 2 2010 4:07 AM EST

In the wiki it says..

'Grants to its wearer a bonus to its Enchant Defense Spells(ED) of about 1/2 rune level.(e.g. if i have a RoS at a level 300,000 and Ablative Shield of 150,000 it will give me a bonus to my ED spell of about 150,000 so my Ablative Shield would be 300,000/150,000)'

I have a tattoo effective level of 4.65mil and my AS is as follows with a corn equipped - AS: 2,367,500 / 1,039,875

Without a corn - Ablative Shield: 2,201,122 / 1,039,875

The wiki explanation implies that half of the RoS's level you get trained in AS - so in my head this means, i could untrain all my AS and just use base and my AS still be the same level.

But surely this isnt so.

Could someone please explain, thanks.

Are those AS levels or effects?

Whats your base AS

Just worked it out, that my AS casts 2mil HP. 3mil including my other AS.

But thats not what im trying to get at.

Could i untrain all my AS xp on my RoS char and train a base AS.

I really doubt you can, its just from what i read in wiki, it feels like this. Is it a bad explanation or am i just a little dim? :)

It works just fine.

The RoS gives a set amount of whatever ED is trained on the minion it is equipped to. So yes, you can use it on a base ED and get the full 50% of the tat level in it from the RoS. Because it is not affected by item bonus/penalties it can be combined with a MgS even.

I think i understand now.

But the numbers dont add up im sure...

So my normal AS lvl is 1,039,875.
My tattoo is lvl 4.65 mil
Halfing this is around 2.3mil.

Normal AS + RoS AS = 1mil + 2.3mil = 3.3mil. which is not 2,201,122 / 1,039,875 like shown on my equip page.

I'm doing something wrong. What? :)

Have you tried this and seen it not work?

Gandalf March 2 2010 8:47 AM EST

I have actually NS, ahh well. :) Live and learn.

I just checked, and having an ROS equipped will add ROS level / 2 directly to the ED level, with no upper bounds. There's nothing else at play.

What are you seeing?

Simply put, items only add % by your trained levels and they don't stack.

E.g. 100 Dex with ElvenBoots +10 = 110 dex and with ElvenCloak +10 = 120 dex not 121 dex. Right? Correct me if I'm wrong.
