As of Gw2 14.215
Basic Damage Calculations
sadly, still work in progress
- Damage = (Power * WeaponAttack * SkillCoefficient) / Armor
- WeaponAttack is a uniformly distributed random number within the weapon's range. Note that some skills have their own "internal" weapons and do not use the equipped weapon to determine their damage.
- SkillCoefficient is a per skill scaling factor.
- Armor is the sum of your opponent's Toughness and Defense (Game term for Armor rating provided by... armor).
- All decimals are dropped at the final calculation.
PvP Lobby Golem armor:
- Light have 1084
- Medium have 1000
- Heavy have 1300
(estimates, but fits my data well)
Tooltip Damage Calculation
sadly, still work in progress
- TooltipDamage = (MaxWeaponAttack * SkillCoefficient * Power / 916)
- MaxWeaponAttack is the maximum of a level-appropriate weapon for the skill.
- For skills that are based off of "internal" weapons, the tooltip damage is not reliable.
- Mostly accurate. There are differences of less than a percent I can't explain; anyone with more precise calculations is welcome to explain/correct.
L80 Mesmer Skill Information
note: writing this stuff down on wiki until I can move it to proper pages. note2: all tooltip damage was calculated from power 1919. Ugh I knew I should have just listed the coefficients.
Illusion and clone skill damage are not based off of weapon damage - tooltip damages are very misleading in many cases. I will list any tooltip damage given, as well as the calculated 'tooltip' damage for that skill (ie based off top end of theoretical weapon range), with (very) approximate cooldowns.
- Spatial Surge - tooltip damage 126, 151, 177 at >25', 50', and 75'. Calculated tooltip damage of 100 at 0'-25'. Coefficients .090, .115, .135, .155 at >0', 25', 50', and 75'. 3 hits.
- Mirror Blade - tooltip damage 280, coefficient 0.25. One hit, bounces 1x to enemy or ally.
- Mind Stab - tooltip damage 561, coefficient 0.5. Applies 5x vulnerability before damage is calculated.
