MPB for SoD (in General)

QBRanger July 8 2011 12:38 PM EDT

I reset my MPB.

Now it reads about 1.8M using a SoD.

But here:

Ichi's explosive shot hit Kano-san [1382657], The Showgirl [417446], Dolly's Twin [414750], Mrs. County, eventually [359102], Big Smith's Ex [361129]

Should not the MPB be inclusive of all the damage done to all minions? Which in this hit would be 2,935,084.

The reason I ask is that with my ELB at the same NW the MPB was 3.2M. I would like to be able to compare damages and total SoD damage is appropriate.

Or am I jumping the shark on this one?

I agree it should be, I think I brought this up about a year and a half ago, and Jon said something along the lines of "no." But, I am probably making that memory up, as it was like a year and a half ago.

if it stands for most powerful blow isn't a blow per individual?

Aren't those separate hits in effect? They take GA return individually and are against different minions.

Yes, but they are from 1 shot/hit.

True, each is subject to separate GA. But it is from 1 sources.

That's do to the way GA works, it doesn't even matter how many hits it is Nat, GA returns 60% of damage done to a minion if it's under the required amount. Dude, it's not called MPBperMinion.

if i swing a baseball bat though and hit three people with it, that's three blows. one blow could break a leg, one a nose and the other a hand. three separate blows with one swing. that is the way i always understood the underlying grammar of violence! ; )

i would love to see a most powerful attack stat though, the more stats the merrier, but would really like to see all damage involved if we make any changes as well.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 8 2011 1:06 PM EDT

My thoughts run along the same lines as dude in this.

i think, the total is just a "attack", which deals Multiple Blows.

I'd like to see the summed up totals for the SoD counted somewhere, Highest Damage Total? I couldn't think of anything better right now. I'd also like to see a DD type MPB, that accounts for total FB/CoC splash damage as well. It'd be nice to see the total amount of damage the splash damage types do.

Slightly related, this is making me wish I didn't accidentally erase my MPB of 13.9m, I loved that hit :(

AdminTitan July 8 2011 2:40 PM EDT

See, when I think of hitting three people with a baseball bat, I think of it as one blow, which hit three people, b/c I didn't swing 3 times. (Why are you hitting people with a baseball bat dude, you've got a sick mind.)

make it a machete then! ; )
