Does Overwhelm affect Sidewinder whilst facing the monster? -Ailen 13:32, 20 June 2007 (CDT)

Nope.--Futan 07:25, 22 June 2007 (CDT)

I'm not disagreeing I'd just like to see some evidence supporting that it does not before people jump to conclusions. --Nicknick 01:49, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Testing setup: Shigeto Bow, Kaburo Arrows. AGI: 67-6 STR: 66+46 The test would consist of using Sidewinder on Wild Rabbits in West Ronfaure (since there is no level variance). For consistancy, I would engage a 2nd rabbit, lock onto the 1st through subtargetting with Sidewinder, run as close as possible to the rabbit (from the front or back) and use Sidwinder. From both the front and back, the WS damage was consistantly 2580, so Overwhelm does not affect Sidewinder. Test is easily replicated.Chewbar 16:49, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Probably a silly question but... does it affect Spirits Within? --Kyrie 00:15, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Quick test with 1 level of Overwhelm with the spideys at North Gustaberg (S) says no. Was getting same damage from behind a monster as face-to-face. --Sore wa sore, kore wa kore... 23:18, August 19, 2010 (UTC)


Is overwhelm only in effect if the mob is being tanked by the SAM? Or, rather, is it still in effect if the SAM is in the line of sight of the mob. Can the SAM stand in front of the Tank and still have it work? --Altimo 13:02, 16 August 2007 (CDT)

Just need to be in front of the mob. Don't need to be tanking. --Futan 11:17, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

Face-to-face.... Anyone know the angle of effect we're talking here? Do you need to be dead-on centered like a Trick Attack or is it more of a general 15-20 degree Sneak Attack-ish angle? --Kravler 02:06, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
