Valky had a Theory back in Beta Phase 3. His assumption, if he was correct, was that the only stat that scales differently between Auto-Attacks and Ability Attacks was Determination. Our original formula which was made by EasyModeX, as well as the Japanese Formula, were both constructed with this in mind. But, this rule does not fit my data samples what so ever.
Let’s look at the solver I’m using, and yes EMX, this is your original solver, albeit modified slightly.
This is the solver for Auto-Attacks. At the top, you can see all the variables used are exactly the same as my AC formula. The numbers highlighted in Orange are the parts of great significance. DET*E is the scaler which should change for Auto-Attacks, if Valkys assumtpion was correct. The Variance of Errors… Is the variance of Errors. The lower this number, the less errors the formula has. The Ability Formula has total error of over 100, which means it’s absolutely incorrect.
The Japanese assume that Determination scales twice as much with Auto-Attacks, than it does for Ability Attacks and valk has just plain stated “it’s different”. So let’s give it a go. If we solve this formula, only changing the Determination Scaler….
We get a Determination scaling value of 0.0008227, with an error reading of 18.6477. This isn’t accurate at all. So this got me wondering, what if this isn’t the case, and that Auto-Attacks literally have a completely different formula? So I went ahead and tested this again… And would you look at that…
All of the values completely changed. So this brings up a rather interesting topic – Do all of our stats scale differently with Auto-Attacks, or is it just either Strength and Weapon Damage that are different, in additional to Determination? I guess I’ll have to do some searching.
But for now, the current Auto-Attack model which fits my data is:
Or, a rounded version of
