So I've been working on getting better numbers for a monk limb counter. I've been staring at these numbers til my eyes bled, so I thought I'd crowd source it at this point to try and get more data in a more easy fashion.
As close as I can determine the equation for unstanced HFP with no knuckles simplifies to
d = 3/50*h + 153
Where h is the max health of the target. This assumes that the target's limb health and max health are equal, which seems sensible to me, but can certainly be debated.
There's about a 2.5% error here (From 500h to 11500h, the possible linear functions result in a different number of punches to break for 289 health values) We could certainly trim that number down by filling in the gaps between differing number of punches to break.
I also started getting data on dragon and scorpion stance, and with and without level 2 knuckles, but its not nearly enough to derive a function from.
If you're interested in helping, the dropbox link for this excel file is https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/102618736/LimbCounter.xlsx
If you're willing to gather data for this project, please post it here, so at least it will be public and peer reviewed-ish. I'm concerned about getting trolled with false data, but this is a shit ton of numbers to gather, so... yeah.
Thanks in advance!
