Revision as of 21:00, June 2, 2009

Anyone know anything about the formula for mp taken with this spell? I know it's partly randomized, but I was hoping increasing my dark skill would help. Caidryn 05:20, 21 April 2008 (UTC)Caidryn

It does. --Toksyuryel 12:41, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

We were trying to come up with a way to test the MAB no effect claim, which I'm certain is true but holy sex if it isn't. Naked BLM vs naked DRK on similar mobs, aspiring simultaneously so that there's no chance moon phase/weather/time/anything could effect the aspir, parsing up at least 100 aspirs. --Headache 03:43, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Some Simple Tests

I hear conflicting arguments here, some people say only Magic Accuracy boost Drain/Aspir. Some say its Magic Attack. Well no one has actually posted any tests here so I did some quick ones.

All testing was done under Waxing Gibbous 67% and Windsday, a nuetral day. Test was conducted in North Gustaburg [S] against a Tunnle Worm right outside the zone to Bastok. I was a Lv75 RDM with BLM sub. I know I shouldnt have subbed BLM and I know I should have a larger sample size, but do keep in mind this was supposed to be a quick test to determine for myself what to Drain/Aspir with. All tests were with Aspir so I could repeat them on the same exact mob.

Test 1: Base Int 77, No Equipment, No Food. 54, 82, 61, 49, 46, 56, 47, 52, 48, 73

  • Average: 56.8
  • Lowest: 46
  • Highest: 82

Test 2: Int Gear Only, Int 77+43 (120). 87, 52, 85, 85, 65, 68, 87, 77, 50, 89,

  • Average: 74.5
  • Lowest: 50
  • Highest: 89

Test 3: Magic Accuracy Gear Only. Int 77, MACC+9. 51, 62, 83, 86, 82, 67, 88, 58, 77, 52

  • Average: 70.6
  • Lowest: 51
  • Highest: 88

Test 4: Magic Attack Bonus, +5 and Pluto's Staff (+15%). 83, 80, 66, 101, 83, 102, 88, 90, 97, 94

  • Average: 88.4
  • Lowest: 66
  • Highest: 102

Test 5: Dark Magic Skill (+13). 87, 59, 28, 91, 76, 85, 57, 74, 91, 55

  • Average: 70.3
  • Lowest: 28
  • Highest: 91

Results: According to this data, Magic Attack+ seems to increase the potential maximum that drain/aspir can absorb. INT , Magic Accuracy, and Dark Magic Skill seem to boost the chance of draining more per cast. Although this is not a large sample size, nor (with the exception of INT) do I have lots of gear to test it with, I found results I can use. And YES I know Pluto's Staff gives Mag.Acc as well as Mag.Att but since I already concluded that Mag.Acc only lessens "resist rate" and not boost the drain cap, I didnt feel it would hurt my data to much. I did these tests on little sleep so if I did do something really stupid or wrong please let me know.

Another conclusion is that Worms have ungodly amounts of MP... I Aspired at least 6000MP throughout the course of these tests from a ~Lv10 Worm <_<

Uhh...the only one you used mab on was also the only one you used pluto's for. Sorry, but this is 100% useless. --rOg \ TaLk 21:00, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
