Scaling


Scaling determines how much additional damage a weapon deals.

A character gains a percentage of the weapons base damage as additional damage, indicated by a "+" next to the weapons base damage.

The weapon's stat bonus, indicated by a letter grade of S/A/B/C/D/E, and the character's stat's current level each correspond to a percentage value. These are multiplied together and against the weapons base damage to determine the bonus damage received.

  • The letter grade represents a range of percentages.

S 100
A 81
B 61
C 45

E ?
  • The character's stat is converted to a percentage value. The % values have been rounded.

* These 2 values are then multiplied together, and against the weapons base damage. This is done with every stat that has a scaling value.
For example : a character with 50 Strength and 20 Skill is using a +10 Whirligig Saw which has a base damage of 190, a strength scaling of S (equal to 110% in this case) and a skill scaling of D (equal to 30% in this case).
According to the scaling chart, 50 Strength gives 85% of the weapons scaling bonus. So the player gains 110%*85%=93.5% Strength bonus scaling. The weapon has a base damage of 190, so the player gains 190*93.5%= 177 bonus damage from strength.
The player also gets 30% (from the D scaling)*40% (from having 20 skill)*190 (base damage)=22.8 bonus damage from skill scaling.

Notes

  • Soft Caps : Looking at the scaling bonus chart shows that the player gains ~.5% extra scaling bonus for every level until 10, ~3% extra scaling bonus for every level from 11 to 25. ~1.4% extra scaling bonus for every level from 26 to 50~.3% scaling for every level after that. This means that leveling past 25 gives slightly reduced bonuses, and past 50 gives severely reduced bonuses; to the point that putting in extra levels past 50 usually gives less bonus damage than leveling a <50 stat, even if the desired weapon has very low scaling.
