sorry i suck at maths but how does that play out in law coz

180mp/2=90 + 50 (base) =140 -40 (def)= 100 damage??

this would be 140mp/2=70 +50(base)=120-30 (def)= 90
so according to my calc you would need 160 to one shot 30def


where and how does this *125 come into play, i forgot about that

The bolt attack formula is similar to the regular attack formula rather than the magic attack formula (because it's a physical attack that tests the targets defence)..

Bolt power is 50, add half of your MP stat to this. This gives you the overall bolt power.. let's call this number p, and the target's defence stat is d.

p / (p + d) *125 = damage

examples..

a 180 mp wizard bolting a wizard with 40 def is..

140 / (140 + 40) *125 = 97 damage

..I think a wizard would need at least 220 mp (megacarmen assisted) to one-shot a 40 def wizard. 220 mp would make the bolt power 160 (50 + 220/2 = 160)..

160 / (160 + 40) *125 = 100 damage

..The highest power bolt possible would be 185 power (270 mp wizard), it would do 98 damage to 50 def (not quite enough to one-shot 50 def).

So when does elevation matter in the magic world? Does it matter for bolt? Does it matter for magic attack?

I don't believe elevation factors into it at all

I did find a situation where it did, have to find it again now..
