OK Baki, after seeing those character stats you posted in the repository thread, I realize there's just no way a linear curve could do the trick. If armor can get to 4000... 7000 - forget it, it's...

It's true that the damage percentage change is not the same as the armor absorption change -- I'm not sure how that changes things, though. If a monster hits me for 200 points and my armor absorbs...

I'm glad you're looking at the sheet. First, look at the old function at level 1. You see that after 300 it passes 80%. By 700 it's at 90%. After that you get less than 0.7% per 100 points! This is...

Not a bad idea. But it can't be a big enough advantage to offset the armor disadvantage, or else leather characters will wear only cloth. It's a little screwy that the warrior gets the best armor AND...

I think it may be important to state that my suggestions don't change the current formula that much. Even my favorite option right now, which is the linear formula (post #2), keeps most of the values...

:) I'm pretty sure the current formula only allows mages to reach 10-25% absorption at most. I think mages are expected to use teleport, shield spells and potions, and to die a lot.

That's my preference as well.



Might be necessary, but I think once the absorption function is fixed, the higher values of plate/chain might already make a big difference.

Actually, the maximum limit for absorption is arbitrary. Currently, 75% is the maximum absorption in the game. In reality though, it seems like it's much less because of the diminishing returns...

Yes, sorry. I tried to generalize. What I wanted to show is that the function is simply the mathematical function y = x/(x+C) where C is a constant . What I wanted to study was the behavior of that...

I played around some more, trying a linear function instead of a non-linear one, and it seems pretty good. Updated my excel spreadsheet at http://www.mediafire.com/?nnas66mec6bi95c with the 'Linear'...

Improving the Absroption Formula

In this thread, I'll try to come up with ways to improve the current formula. I believe the problems we're now discovering with the formula are the reason for people experiencing imbalance at higher...
