So... Some Morai skills are based off soulforce, but have a set range, which means there HAS to be a magic number where it caps off to max out these skills right?

So... Does anyone know what this magic number is?

    So what's the minimum number, then? Is there a floor below which it won't matter for the purposes of Morai skills because you'll always get the minimum rate of effectiveness? Y'know, for those of us whose Cashforce is not up to par. o.o

    (Yes, I know high refines aren't always the result of CSing. I AM saying that Soulforce is an arbitrary stat which could just as easily have been replaced by non-P2W methods)

    My cash force is great I just like using my force for stuff that's worth something...you know the real life stuff.

    Minimum soulforce would be 51 (unrefined unsharded level 1 character).

    Of course, for practical applications, the minimum is actually 0400 (level 80 with no equipment on aka no refines).... but even that is being silly. Most likely a person at 100 should have an average refine of +5 or so (really it's pretty cheap and simple to get that) making their soulforce 15.4k.

    ... but if the devs didn't take this into account when setting the ranges up, it's unlikely anyone would get the minimum percentile of the effects Morai skills have (aside from those that also take into account your opponent's soulforce).


    Easiest way to test is Death Link/Death chain as it has a simple effect with a value that's easy to calculate and relies only on the assassin's soulforce (unlike other skills that may rely on the soulforce of both players, have chances to fail which would cause them to need a larger sample size, etc).

    Yup, you're wrong an EA can get 54k soulforce, even though it is useless.

    Well the best use of soulforce is to counter other morai skills like Reel In.
    I have 53k soulforce but galvanic aura's crit bonus which says it lasts 4-9 hits only lasts for 8 hits.

    Perhaps I didn't present the question clearly.

    Suppose I'm on a BM with about 15k Soulforce and I'm facing a character with the maximum possible amount. I try to use Reel In on this person. Above what threshold would my chance of success rise above 40%?

    Never used Morai skills myself. Anyone know a thread with a Morai skill guide in it?

    Here's a Morai mystic's skill that work with the soulforce:

    Sublime Transfusion  

    Range 28.5 meters
    Mana 587
    Channel 2.4 seconds
    Cast 1.0 seconds
    Cooldown 120.0 seconds
    Weapon Unarmed, Magic Instrument

    Required Cultivation Aware of Vacuity

    Redirects healing (including Guardian Charms) received by the targeted enemy to you for 40 seconds.
    The amount of healing redirected is determined by your Soulforce compared to the target's.
    When the Soulforce of both players is equal, 30% of healing is redirected.
    Against a player of your level, the healing redirected will be between 20% and 40%.

    This spell is not effective against enemies 5 or more levels above you.

    Effect Range 45 meters
    Costs 1 Spark.

    I'm fairly sure the short answer is "no one really knows for certain". Mind you, if I'm wrong about that, please prove me wrong. Give me a beautiful equation. I'd -love- to see one.

    Agreed! I was looking at some of the Morai Skills and a LOT of them I don't see people using in NW or anything... But most of them seem REALLY useful, so I decided to do some testing with my toons to see how i like each skill and some of them with even half to 2/3 of the max are OP, let alone the full amount...

    My soulforce is 36k and the psy has nearly all +12 gear
