why don't we have a tattoo that increases DD like the RoS and ToA boost other things

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 9 2011 1:46 AM EDT

I've always been on the fence about this suggestion...

On one hand it'd bring back multi-minion mage teams, and give us back FB as a useful spell, on the other it'd be WAY too good and would likely result in further nerfing of DD as a whole.

can't wear a CoI with a tattoo

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 9 2011 1:50 AM EDT

Even if it only added 40% of it's level to the DD, for someone with a max tat tattoo that could be huge... easily raising multi minion mages DD by 100%.

King October 9 2011 1:55 AM EDT

Probably because a ToA may boost strength but it doesn't affect a weapon's X and only increases chance of hitting and a RoS can still be DM'ed, whereas a DD tattoo would cover a complete, un-counterable increase to a damage formula. (I'd rather use a familiar for the added hp and kill slot anyways.)

amf counters DD king

King October 9 2011 2:00 AM EDT

AMF is a soft counter, DD damage is horrible but a proper mage is only slightly inconvenienced by it's use.

Unless someone invests heavily in amf I imagine it to be somewhere closer to 0.1 for multiminion teams and probably 0 for 1 or 2 minion teams who would use the tattoo.

Didn't we just get out of MageBlender?

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] October 9 2011 10:05 AM EDT

what if the tattoo functioned more like bloodlust - granted a DD boost, but made the minion take more dmg (either from all dmg types or from AMF).

Were just getting started actually.

Tanks will never be able to match the damage/potential of a well setup mage team.

DD's are linear and Physical damage is not (as much as you people would like to say it is).

AMF is pretty much crippled by the NSC.

Quyen October 9 2011 12:17 PM EDT

a single minion FB team will get more famous with this setup :P, it would destroy everything XD

using the mathematical definition it is linear actually.

AdminTitan October 9 2011 7:47 PM EDT

using the mathematical definition it is linear actually.

Only if it's a function of ST and X. It is logarithmic in terms of them separately.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 9 2011 7:50 PM EDT

even using one of those it would still be graphed as line, it would just be half as steep wouldn't it?

AdminTitan October 9 2011 7:50 PM EDT

No

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 9 2011 7:56 PM EDT

it is still a linear damage model, just one based on two paths of upgrade.

AdminTitan October 9 2011 7:58 PM EDT

Yes, you could argue that.

Physical damage = Z(X*ST)

DD = Y(DD)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] October 9 2011 7:59 PM EDT

Physical damage has the potential to go over linear damage increase through pth. It also has the benefit of being able to increase x far sooner. The costs that come with those benefits are it being expensive to keep up with.
