I made several tests to check Twisters/CM ticks/tick rate etc.
I used Ghom as test-dummy, lured him into a corner so he did not move, took the time I needed to bring him down from x hp to 0 (started time with full Twisters up) and counted the number of Diamond Skins I could recast in this period. I got the following results from over 20 tests (averaged numbers thoug, very high R² ~ 0.998 or sth).
twister crit: 70.5%
apoc: 20 (full ap all the time anyways)
seconds per DS: 1.10
since I used Evocation CD of DS=15*0.85=12.75s
1.1s per DS means I need to get 12.75-1.1=11.64 CM triggers every 1.1s => 10.58 CM/s
so I got around 10.6 CM trigger every second by just using 2.2484 APS and only twister (no EB). Now we need to know the number of Twisters up at the same time: 2.2484*6~13.5
So I got around 13-14 Twisters up at the same time.
10.6/13.5=0.8 //CM trigger per Twister and second
0.705crit*0.125pc*tickrate=0.8 => tickrate=9.08/s => 55 ticks/twister
now when i compare this value with the ones from the formula and/or table each twister should only have ~half as much ticks per seconds. I hope my calculations are clear.. I just counted CM triggers to determine the tick rates without formula and breakpoints.. but when I compare these two values they are obviously different!
Any suggestions why I get these results?
€dit: even with other and low aps/crit stats I always calculate 48-58 ticks for energy twister. always kinda twice as much as table/formula says.
