Default High top end end damage weapons and multipliers for strength and crits for warriors.

Hey all,

First post I've made, I've been building a warrior on S1. And I've noticed that even weapons with high amounts of strength are nothing in comparison to a weapon with high top end damage after strength factors in.

For instance currently I have a "Thorn Blade of Epic Superpowers"

it's stats are: DMG 29-87 (58), Strength +25, Constitution +19.

After you factor in my Strength (548, and i'm lvl 29) my DPS turns into:


My previous weapon was a hammer with DMG 47-63 (56) and it's more like 2100ish-2350-ish damage wise.

I know that the top end damage of a weapon must be the single most important factor at this point as a result. and that spending mushrooms to cycle till a good weapon with decent stats and a high top end damage is worth it as a result.

But what are the multipliers for the stat of strength? And how do crits factor? They aren't just times two multipliers from what I've seen since they grow in damage every swing.

I've kind of burned through some money trying different weapons out, even if the average base damage is higher with a weapon, in the long run high top end damage and a decent crit rate seem FAR more effective in keeping fights short.

Anyone else have input on this subject? Thanks in advance.

It is not your top end damage that is causing the greater damage, but the higher average damage. You could find a weapon with damage of 10-100 (55), with Strength +44 and it won't do better than what you have now.

What do you mean about multipliers for strength? Your base stats go up based on whatever you spend for them, and the calculation for each range, percentage, or total is exactly as listed when you hover your cursor over the amount. If you want to know what your chance for a critical hit is, hover your mouse over the critical hit number and it gives you the equation.

The reason for increasing damage, is because the game automatically increases damage per attack (it doesn't matter if you hit or miss). This rate has not been figured out yet. A critical hit is supposed to double damage after taking into account armor, resistance, and increased damage up to the maximum bonus.
