... and not separate from base damage. I keep thinking this should fix Hero critical damage. I have made a thread about this issue Monday in Bug/Glitch. Here is the link: http://maplestory.nexon.net/communit...-UI%26nxid%3D6
And in this thread, Rexaar showed me damage formula and we notice the critical damage is calculated separately from base damage, we use same factors to calculate its damage as we do for base damage, then we add critical damage to the base damage, like below:
And in my thread, I myself calculated that advanced combo attack doesnt calculate critical damage. As example, if I was dealing 22M damage including advanced combo then i want calculate critical damage, we divide 22M by 2.2, so 10M. I add 50% max critical damage from 10M and not from the 22M or else I would do 33M ms2 mesos damage on hard magnus. On him, I do around 21-22M then crit damage, I do around 26-27M max!!! I had done tests by using enrage WITHOUT combo attack, then tested Chance Attack without either those skills, their difference between my current crit dmg and the one seeing on AP window is smaller than with combo attack.
By looking what Rexaar showed me, I really wonder why Nexon havent made it even simplier! I keep thinking in this current critical damage formula, this system ignore up to 1 damage multiplier/amplification and i think it ignores the highest one. Because I meet same issue with enrage when I dont use advanced combo.
So, I make this suggestion thread, asking to change the current damage formula for the one I will show. Slightly different because I completely remove critical damage math then I add the actual crit dmg value as a factor, to it multiplies the *overall* damage !!! Like below, I will put critical dmg in bold and also added damage amplification:
[weapon multiplier * (4 * primary stats * (1+%primary stats) + secondary stats * (1+%secondary stats) * (Weapon Attack * (1+%attack) / 100) * (1+%boss damage + %total damage) * (damage multiplier 1) * (damage multiplier 2) * ... * (damage amplification 1) * ( damage amplification 2) *...] * (1 + %critical damage/100)
The simpliest way it should be made. I am pretty confident this will fix the Hero critical damage. If impossible to change, then give Hero an hidden buff (which should not be shown either on AP window) which multiplies critical damage by (1 + 0.12c)
0.12 because +12% dmg/combo then letter c for number of combo. This little factor is true if we maxed advanced combo and apply hyper skill SP into reinforce combo, or w/e
I am sure this will also fix other classes with the same issue. But Hero is the worst case.
EDIT: I just reread the very last sentence of what Rexaar said. ''As you can see by the brackets the damage multiplier and critical damage is separate, thus damage multiplier are additive with critical hits.'' I fail to understand why Nexon makes damage amplification different than damage multiplier when both multiply the normal damage. And, for Hero case, enrage also multiply critical damage when advanced combo is being used. Really, in my opinion both of them should multiply critical damage.
We can't really say dmg multiplier is additive with critical damage because, by looking at his math, has no relation with critical damage. Except Enrage kinda multiplies critical damage because we have an other and bigger damage multiplier being advanced combo. From a reply I have read in the past (in other threads), for KMS it is an intended error. So unfair.
