Well, even though "deadly strike" sounds deadly it's an ok stat, it's pretty much a wdm pierce equivalent. Plus, you can only get up to 20% with orbs.
Scalewinged wrote:I think max orbs per item will be nerfed too.... anyway 2% DS and 4 lvl req... so 1% for 2 lvl req. And i think also deadly strike will replace crushing blow so it's not that good.. As for Vizjun's Ball Bearing: Ok. There's at least 2 nearly useless stats and all for +10 lvl req. But It's still better than just 2% DS only (+4 lvl somewhere for 10% run/walk, +6 lvl somewhere for 6 dex)
And where did you read %CB orb is being removed?
Most UMOs are rather terrible now, so the comparisions don't do much atm.

Yes that is done already.

That and the fact that math with small numbers is somewhat slightly easier than math with big numbers, not sure how much it would impact performance but it sure has to be a bonus considering memory mapping.
Thanks for clarifying to others since I gave it for granted.
Indeed this reduction will effectively translate to damage increase to all skills that were having damage cap issues.
And yes, one of the nice things suchbalance mentioned after this implementation is that numbers feel much more natural now.

We (Quirinus mostly) have been working on a launcher that does everything for you, for quite some time. We will certainly launch this new median version together with it, which will make the whole installation AND updating process completely automatic.
