"What do I MO my gear with?
Weapons: inti/aban bless+luck first → %ed to 196 → ewd → ds → max (In doubt, use a dmg calculator)."
What means : "%ed to 196"? 196 what? And I get even more confused with after cliking on this. https://i.imgur.com/WRRWBuU.png
Also what mean "max" at the end of the sequence ?
Again, I'm sure it totally makes sense for players used to play with phys weapons, but I'm really diving into it for the first time.
ed and ewd are two different affixes.
ed multiplies the base dmg of the weapon and it caps at 200.
ewd is a stat that multiplies your total dmg (weapon, min dmg, max dmg), it acts as and is additive to dex (no cap).
if your bow has 198ed on it, it means adding a ed MO on it would only give you 2ed instead of 15 (because it caps at 200). meaning that the dmg that you'd get from that MO would be lower than a simple +6max dmg MO. I calculated how much dmg each 1ed gave and figured that 5ed was better than 6max dmg, but not 4ed. that's why I recommend to stop at 196ed.
Ok it's perfectly clear now. Thanks
