Plasma Arrow and/or Electric Expotion bugged?

Hi.

I know that [url='http://board.eu.runesofmagic.gameforge.com/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=420178']here[/url] is a similar thread, but I can't post any message (thread is cloesed).

It seems that these skills do not work correctly.

- Plasma Arrow+60:
Causes 855.0 + 0.10 x INT Wind Damage and puts you in Charged state which in turn temporarily increases your crilical magical hit rate by 168.8.

- Electric Explotion+60:
Causes 1140.0 + 0.20 INT Wind Damage to the target. When used in Charged state it will deal 1140 + 0.30 INT Wind Damage to the target.

So, let's start.

Stats (without pet, Hero potion etc):
- Intelligence: 12700
- Magical Damage: 12540
- Magic Attack: 61.6k

Plasma Arrow:
normal: ~54k
critical: ~71.3k

Electric Explotion (not-charged):
normal: ~54.9k
critical: ~72.2k
The difference between skills (maybe I'm not right) 285.0 + 0.10 INT Wind Damage gave us +0.9k (normal or critical damage).

Electric Explotion (charged):
normal: ~56.6k
critical: ~74.0k
DIfference between Plasma Arrow and Electric Explotion (Charged): 285.0 + 0.2 INT Wind damage gave us 2.6k/2.7k (normal/critical).
Somehow not seriously, considering that 855.0 + 0.10 x INT Wind Damage done 54k.
//---
Let's change stats.
Stats with pet and Hero portion:
- Intelligence: 15460
- Magical Damage: 12540
- Magic Attack: 70.5

Plasma Arrow:
normal: ~62.5k
critical: ~87.7k

Electric Explotion (not-charged).
normal: ~63.2k
critical: ~89.5k

285.0 + 0.1 INT Wind Damage (difference between Plasma and Electric Explotion) gave 0.7k (normal attack) and 1.8k (critical attack) of damage.
Incredibly. 2760 INT stat and 12.4k m.att caused only 0.7/1.8k damage. Really? oO

Let's see Electric Explotion (charged)
normal: ~65.4k
critical: ~92.6k
285.0 + 0.2 INT Wind Damage: 2.9/4.9 (normal/critical) damage.

//---
Let's say that "Plasma Arrow" does the right damage.
855.0 + (12700 * 0.1) = 855 + 1270 = 2125 wind damage. Right? Which caused our 54k
(12700 INT without pet, Hero potion etc)

Let's do something similar with Electric Explotion (not-charged)
1140.0 + (12700 * 0.2) = 1140 + 2540 = 3680. Right?

Then

2125 points of wind damage do 54k of damage and
3680 points only 54.9k?
Unbelievable. 2125 poins done 54k of wind damage, and another 1555 points only 0.9k.

if 2125 -- 100% and 1555 our X

2125 - 100
1555 - X

(1555 * 100) / 2125 = 73,176470588235294117647058823529 (%)

In this case Electric Explotion (not-charged) must deal about 54000 + 73% = 93420. But we have only 54.9k (unfortunately)
And Electric Explotion must deal some greater damage:
1140.0 + (12700 * 0.2) = 1140 + 3810 = 4950 (about 34.5% more that not-charged ~125k)
but we have only 56.6k

Mayby I'm wrong.

Anyway, thanks for your attention and sorry about my English.

Unfortunately, the skill descriptions for magic skills are grossly misleading, because they do not reflect the damage calculation. The lion's share of the damage comes from

1) The total mdmg you have (mostly from the staff)
2) The nominal cast time of the skill is multiplied with that (factor 2 for these two skills)
3) (Since Chapter 4) A multiplier based on your skill level; that multiplier is about 1+(0.02*level).
4) A multiplier from percent additional damage (e.g., from Vahtos' set).
5) A multiplier that reflects you matk and your target's mdef.

And I guess I forgot some things.

At some point pretty late in this calculation the absolute damage boni mentioned in the skill description are added, but they play a minor role in the total damage, as you have discovered. If you want to see more clearly what these boni give you, take off everything that gives you mdmg (staff, robe, throusers), and try the two skills again.
