Damage Calculation Utility & Results

Damage Calculation Utility for A2:CS


I've put together a google doc spreadsheet that accounts for most known impact on damage and let's you calculate, roughly but pretty well, the damage you'll deal (before armor/resistance) under various conditions, with different builds. I've linked to a public but view-only version; you can freely make a copy and then mess around with that, so people aren't trying to edit at the same time.




Basically, just edit the highlighted boxes; it will auto-calculate a lot of stuff related to weapon stats, auto-distributed stat points, etc.






Here are some comparative results I put together. This uses mid-to-late game stats, including equipment effects, but not equipment (or spell levels) found only in the toughest dungeons.


These do assume all or most stat boosts and traits have gone in the relevant stat. If you invest more in Endurance, the losses are pretty proportional all around.


The number after the slash is with the appropriate Cloak spell active (L3 for easily available missile, L2 for less available melee/magic cloaks), since that is a whole-party decision and pretty separate.



Simple weapons investment (8+2)


465/577 2H Slith Bloodspear

I've updated the google doc to reflect new theories about critical hits and luck. This should have a uniform impact on the results, for the most part, but you can check out the new numbers yourself. (You'll need to make a new copy, of course.)
