This last update introduced 2 new passive skills from the new ulfgard quests: Elemental Force and Dark Emperor's Power.

At level 1 they each say they increase skill damage by 2% but they actually increase skill damage by only 1%, HALF as much as advertised.

I think this is an actual error and not merely a translation error since that percentage in the description is a dynamic value not a text typo.

I'm not gonna bog this down with the math but this is an exact result from an exact measurement made with fixed damage attacks (no randomness).

86Arc Userwhere can u see its 1.21 and not 1.22?

is there any feature in char simulator showing this?

854Arc UserYou can calculate it exactly by looking at the ratio of the damage when you cast an unarmed skill against a mob with and without Mystic invigorate.

If it was 1.21 then the ratio would be (1.21 + 0.2) / 1.21 or 1.41/1.21, and if it is 1.22 then the ratio would be 1.42/1.22.

You can also look at the ratio between a punch and a basic unarmed skill.

Like I have a basic skill that can do "base physical damage plus 6499".

Unarmed my "base physical damage" in the character sheet is 11351.

So I can punch a low level mob and see that my base physical damage does 129315 damage to it.

That means the skill without any skill bonus should do

(11351 + 6499) / 11351 * 129315 = 203354 damage.

When I actually cast the skill against that same mob I instead deal 250125 damage.

250125 / 203354 = 1.229997

So I know my skill bonus is 0.23 (tiny bit off due to rounding errors), it's supposed to be 0.24 though.ββ

854Arc UserThe 5th level of the ulfgard passive gives you 3% more damage so at max level you get the full benefit.

So the expected behavior for the first 5 levels is 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10%

What actually happens is 1%, 3%, 5%, 7%, 10%

173Arc User10Arc UserI learned lv.5 phys passive and then lv.1 mag passive on Barbarian... skill damage is increased also with mag passive.

82Arc User1,673Arc UserCan you do another or perhaps different example to calculating damage on this game? Math is not my strong suit and this concept is a little hard to grasp for me.
