I would definitely not count on an 18 str, non-runewardwn dsb if you want to be able to kill -everyone-. Might be fine against certain classes/lower tiers/unartied, but I could probably afk through the attempts. Regen, high sips, active heals, defenses that resist dsb damage can all make that seem really ineffective.
@aerek you can come be my mentor and teach me how to infernal I went DWB, currently using flails for hunting until I can trans at least weapon mastery and see if I can get morningstars. How bad is the hinder from other classes? Will I be locked before I can even hit twice? Is just flails viable or do you need both? Should I spec for all strength? I'm currently a Xoran with no traits/race spec yet.
Apply restoration to torso, fly. Land when cured. Gg.
Before I forget again, have some updated (as of whenever I did the testing) disembowel numbers on a target with a maximum health of 6933. Since I got complaints about the formatting last time these have been rounded to two decimal places by Excel first.
And you won't understand the cause of your grief...
...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.
The road to 20STR is a long an expensive one.
Well, you did pick one of the worst races for strength. Not so bad for Troll/Xoran/Satyr Runewardens, only need level one gauntlets to hit 20 strength. Though aren't you also two-handed? If you've got the leg fractures to devastate into a torso disembowel, you probably don't need to worry about them being at or near full health.
@Aegoth Sorry. Headers could have been better, but the forums are fucking garbage. It looked okay when writing the post but then it gets squished together when you actually post it. It's not totally awful on my monitor but it's horrendous on my phone.
@Exelethril I probably won't do the full strength ranges, but I can at some point do some tests to see exactly how scales interacts with disembowel damage. It should just be a straight 10% reduction after the damage is calculated, though, so multiplying the percentages by 0.9 should be reasonably accurate. Dragon armour is just cutting/blunt resistance so doesn't affect disembowel at all (the results I just posted were from testing on a dragon, and matched up pretty closely with my previous results).
