So there have been some topics about how our mana system harms our DPS output in battle. So instead of sitting around theory crafting and throwing empty speculations, I decide to make a true effective DPS test against single target. (And I am willing to do more comprehensive test on other conditions and any ideas/suggestions are welcome). The testing/videos can be found in our steam channel when completed
So here are the control groups and test conditions.:
1. ghom in MP 2(I will pick a MP that the gas won't seriously kill my chars)
reason: ghom does not pick you up or has reflect like seige so it makes test result less vulnerable to RNG.
2. RLTW barb vs Bear Doc
Fully buffed DPS: 90K<-should be tangible for both classes, and my barb doesn't have very good gears so this is as high as she can go, I need to gimp my WD significantly to reduce DPS from 140K to 90k but that shouldn't be too hard
(barb)<-94.7K DPS after battle rage+serker and serker is on full time during the fights
Run like the wind
Battle rage/into the fray
Beserker/thrive on chaos
(WD)<-96K paper DPS
Zombie bears/widow maker
Vision Quest/Spiritual vessel/Blood ritual.
