02/17/2013 03:24 PMPosted by ShaggyI believe they changed APoC completely in order to fix blizzard's APoC, but it is all theory right now, not enough controlled testing
02/17/2013 05:52 PMPosted by LoroeseWhile I was thinking that might be the case, the problem is we're not seeing a noticable difference between 10 and 20 APoC.
So I was really intrested in this forum thread.
#1 I ran every single skill test (meteor orb et blizzard) test against a single target so as to ensure there is no overlap. All at 50% cc
#2 I can vary my Apoc from 0~30 and tested each setting with certain skills and apoc variables (0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30). Because I can't explain the more spikey-ness of Apoc returns I am getting,
#3 All against Ghom @ mp 1 (the best I can do without needing more mitigation) I frap'sed the session at 182 frames (fps) to count each pool return (had my character panel open the whole time so I could view the actual amount gained on each triggered proc. Also note this made it hard to target properly hence against ghom)
I have some conclusions your all welcome to test out for yourself. With Et and Blizzard my Apoc returns are very consistent and steady. 10 Apoc nets me almost 1.5 Apoc a second with et, 15 is very Very close to constant 2 gain, 20 is very close to 4 apoc per crit, 30 was nearly 6 Apoc returned upon a crit.
With meteor, and Arcane orb My returns are completely different. Each *crit* that triggers Apoc gains me the respective Apoc I have geared. This is at least what I have recorded there are times with different apocgear when meteor/orb crit lands and I instantly have 5/10/15/20/30 more arcane pool. There is a significant difference between how these skills function with apoc. Could it be because both ET and Blizzard have "tick" rates that their nature of apoc returns are different from skills that don't have Aps gaining tick counts? (skills like meteor and orb?)
And before anyone correct's that it cant be right, please test it for yourselves meteor/orb's apoc functions differently than blizzard's/et returns.
