Actual point BV stops contributing to ShoR

Postby Rodox » Tue Sep 22, 2009 1:19 pm

Shield of Righteousness: Now deals 100% of shield block value as damage instead of 130%. In addition, the benefit from additional block value this ability gains is now subject to diminishing returns. Diminishing returns occur once block value exceeds 30 times the player's level and caps the maximum damage benefit from shield block value at 34.5 times the player's level.


This Bluepost taken out from 3.2 Patchnotes clearly says that the point BV stops contributing to ShoR is at 34.5 times the player's level.

Theck says in his MATLAB-Analysis that the actual point is at 3161 BV.

Would anyone be so good as to explain this difference?

The cap as given there is using the damage contribution to ShoR, rather than the undiminished BV number. With the diminishing returns, it takes more than 34.5 times you level in block value to reach the point where that much damage is added.

The 3161 value was determined empirically in this thread.
