Bolded numbers are the values for a Level 51 caster, because nobody cares about AoE past 51. (Well, rarely).

I've been using warble for the past little while and I'll admit it's a handy skill. You should probably include range stats in your skill descriptions, since those can be pretty handy (such as the case of warble, which is the longest ranged skill the game). Not to mention miscalculating range sometimes ends up being annoying and canceling spells when you're spamming skills >.>


I'm kinda curious as to how you got a base damage on all the spells, since there's some sort of weird equation for all spells that make them do +/- 5 damage intervals?

And speaking of which, since you have base damage figured out, have an equation to calculate the effects of wisdom/m.att and how they effect skills/spells?

Or for the condensed version, Magic Damage = stat modifier * Base * other multiplier

Stat modifier = Matk / Mdef / 6.25. If this is greater than 1, it is 1.
