If you can get the cooldown numbers from each skill of each character, and also note any helixes that effect cooldown percents, i can do the math part for you, and possibly test a few to make sure the math is accurate.
@Ganjamira if you could tell us, or direct us to a page that will tell us, how to have dropdown categories that hide the content until the title of the category is clicked in posts to keep everything neat, that would be awesome. I couldn’t find anywhere that said how to do that.
My Character Builder should have all the numbers you need, though there is A LOT involved with calculating the final value you see on the screen so some thought might have to be put in on how you’d represent that on a chart.
If you want to try your hand at working off of the raw data, there is also the manifest file I use which is exported from the PC game files. But like I said, this is kind of a beast of a thing to dig into.
I explicitly stated my utter degree of suck when it comes to math.
I also disagree with your statement that all gear benefits all characters equally. Damage Reduction on Galilea is better on Galilea than it is on Orendi. Fact.
An Orendi cannot and will not make the same use, or get the same benefits, as Galilea when it comes to Damage Reduction. I get what you’re TRYING to say, but it’s still wrong even if it’s mathematically correct. (SCREW MATH).
I am actually fairly certain damage reduction is not multiplicative. I did a small amount of testing with damage reduction gear on Dragon a few months back, and it seemed to have diminishing returns on damage reduction. I don’t have the numbers on me at the moment, but from what I saw; damage reduction numbers are defiantly not multiplicative or addictive. Neither of the two added up.
Do you mind posting the results if you still have them? I know without a doubt it isn’t additive, and I also know it doesn’t use the formula Borderlands 2 used. So I can’t really think of any logical formula they could have used besides multiplicative.
Just to make sure we’re on the same page, this is how Montana’s DR should work.
75% from Mansformation
30% from Hailstorm + 20% from Ice Revolve (since it’s additive to Hailstorm) = 50%
So if Montana is hit with 100 damage while all 3 are up it should look like this…
100*0.25*0.5= 12.5 damage taken
Why it may look like diminishing returns is because with just his Ult up he already only takes 25 damage, so Hailstorm can only take away 50% of this new damage, resulting in 12.5 damage taken.
Meaning Hailstorm only reduced your damage taken by 12.5, instead of the 50 it normally does without Mansformation.
