Durability loss wizard vs ninja comparison


7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

 

Hi

 

A few weeks ago I geared my wiz to check the difference between him and my ninja.

I didnt liked wiz playstyle so I sold his 3 weapons a few days later BUT one thing hit me seriously.

 

THE DIFFERENCE IN WEAPON DURABILITY CONSUMPTION IS HUDGE

And I think its really unfair that the most efficient class in game (wizard) has such HUDGE adventage when compared to Ninja.

 

Here are the numbers and how I tested those differences (see screens attached below)

Test number 1:

Wiz was 56 lvl, ninja was 59lvl, both were fully repaired before start. I farmed basilisks (same spot and rotation) until UI showed item breakdown. The dmg done over time was similar due to numer of crap item dropped by basilisks (around 2800 - ). It took about 70 minutes to reach such level.

   1)      Ninja: 189/191/283 (before TRI kutum lost 100% dura)

       - dandelion katana lost 84% dura, kutum lost 100% dura                                                                              

       -  both dandelion sura katana and kutum offhand  are BRANDED

- not branded weapons would loose 168% (dandelion) and 200% (kutum)

 

   2)      Wizard: 167/204/204

- dandelion godr sphera lost 62% dura, nouver lost 53% dura

- both dandelion godr sphera and nouver offhand are NOT BRANDED

 

My thoughts: it looks like current durabilitu loss system greatly favours classes with strong skills with long casting time, and hurts those that have to spam many skills to keep up with good dmg output.

Durability should be consumed not per skill casted but per X amount of dmg dealt.

IN CONCLUSION: the durability loss of ninja weapons while grinding is almost 3 TIMES faster than wizard’s. This seriously cripples the silver earning efficiency of Ninja players. Current durability loss/dmg dealt ratio among different classes is really bad and unbalanced.

Test number 2:

Wizard and Ninja were both 59lvl. awk and offhands were branded. Wiz stats: 215/217/263, ninja stats: 200/214/283. We both farmed (separately, solo) untill first of my (ninja) weapon lost 100% dura. Ninja got 2731 sulfur piece so  Wizard farmed untill he reached 2700 sulfur too. THe amount of sulfur provides equalizadion in our total dmg (i know its not the best statement but at least vaulable)

Durability lost on branded weapons:

1) Ninja:  100% dura lost on dandelion and 94% dura lost on kutum

2) Wizard: 39% durability lost on dandelion and 23% lost on nouver

Conclusiion : ninja awk weapon looses its dura about 2,5x times faster than wizards, ninja kutum offhand looses its durability over 4x times faster than wizards nouver

I kindly ask for assistance in this matter @CM_Aethon  , @GM_Gemu , ANYONE???

Witches also have increased durability, I mean they last longer grinding than some of the other classes. I personally break my off-hand too easily too, way faster than them, I think only mages have this advantage but I'd need someone else to confirm. I have branded all my weapons as well and compared it with some guildies, I must repair waay before them, I think this also has to do with them missing less hits (high multipliers and acc modifiers) and dealing more damage therefore killing mobs with less attacks/combos.

i know. It isnt fixed.

recently i started compareing also my current ninja with guildmate (wiz). He lost 70 durability in 3hours of grinding, i lost SAME amount in 40 min...

Thanks for posting this. When talking about class balance, it's important to bring up PvE (not just PvP). This topic is a big deal and I hope it gets some attention.
