I don't have any personal recolections or any data collection in regards to the max damage for skillchains. It would make sense to me that the above statement could be correct. I do remember one time seeing my lught skillchain do more damage than my weapon skill had, which i thought was interesting as i thought the max was 100% of the weapons skill damage. i dont remember if it was in a series of skillchains or what though... anyways, if we want to change this info in the renkie article, i'm not opposed. --[[User:Rixie|Rixie]] 11:26, 8 May 2006 (PDT)

To my experience, Renkei damage is like a black magic spell with base damage = (modifier) * (last weaponskill damage), with the elemental properties of all the elements in the renkei w.r.t. bonuses and penalties. The damage resistance pattern is like black magic too: if the base damage is 1000, and the modifier is 50% (2-part level 1 chain) then the monster can take the full 500, or 250, 125, 62, etc.
  +
  +
The modifier is determined from a chart which I saw a long long time ago. It goes something like this: (warning, numbers not accurate)

I'm not sure how resistance rate of renkei damage is calculated; it's possible that the game takes any of the mean, peak, or trough resistance rate from among the present element, or something more complicated.
  +
  +
Day/weather bonuses and penalties seem to apply if the renkei contains the proper elements. That is, light has a chance of doing and extra 10% damage on firesday, windsday, lightsday, and lightningsday. It would be interesting to see if the Sea Obis (that guarantee the day/weather bonus/penalty) modify renkei damage all the time.

Revision as of 18:38, May 8, 2006

Someone revert the edit Valyana made, it now makes the page useless to find out a skillchain if you have to keep going back and forth between pages. --Zero 18:55, 20 Jan 2006 (PST)


Do you have another suggestion for how to split up the page? None of my browsers were capable of editing the page as it was. If someone else is able to put back the elemental attributes section, I have no objection, but please don't revert my other changes. --Valyana 23:37, 20 Jan 2006 (PST)


Oh hell I don't mind the changes you made to the top, but I feel having the elemental attributes on the same page is really handy (Though, the order needs to be fixed). I will see what I can do about putting the elemental charts back onto the same page. --Zero 02:31, 21 Jan 2006 (PST)

Chart Changes

Yeah, they look better, but I don't really like the idea of having two collums. Also, would you mind including colors? It would help me recognize which elements are what a lot quicker. --Zero 15:24, 17 Feb 2006 (PST)

Done

Well I kep the 2 columns, but that can be undone if needed. I really don't use skill chains at all as a BST, so I don't know if the rest of the article can be shortened anywhere, but at least this gets the information that was moved back in a shortened version. Hope it can be edited as is. --Gahoo 11:37, 22 February 2006 --Valyana 12:30, 1 March 2006 (PST)(PST)

Wpn Skill charts

Looks excellent, except for a few weapons that have skills with long names. Those charts that have them aren't aligned properly on all resolutions, one of the easiest to see is the chart for Hand-to-hand. Shoulder Tackle, One Inch Punch, and Spinning Attack are all too long to keep to one line. While this would be fine normally, the rest of the chart doesn't word wrap with it, so the alignments are all off. When I have the time after work, Ima play with the chart to see if I can't make it look the same, but set the rows into alignment for all screens. If someone wants to try this before I do, please go ahead.

--Chrisjander 12:01, 22 February 2006 (PST)

I've now got a test chart on my talk page that has the basic two column format, and all the info, but now its rows are aligned. I used Greatsword and Hand-to-Hand as examples because they were two of the weapons with the longest names. Take a look and tell me what you think. User talk:Chrisjander

--Chrisjander 13:51, 22 February 2006 (PST)

Looks fine to me. Thanks. --Gahoo 14:10, 22 February 2006 (PST)

The new tables look good, but I notice that the contents differ significantly from Aden's chart, which I'm inclined to trust more. For instance, I know that Full Swing opens Fusion and closes Liquefaction, but the tables here don't show it as having a Fire element at all. --Valyana 12:30, 1 March 2006 (PST)


Heh, I actually have no idea how the tables are supposed to work, I just tried to make it look nicer. I almost always use Aden's chart, since its much easier to read. Since you really only need to know what the weapons you use open and close, and with what, this table would only be for people that don't like Aden's chart, or want to remember the reasons why the weapon skills work. And I'm not entirely sure, but I thought to open a Fire renkai, you didn't need the element in question, but then again, I've already said I dont' know how these charts are supposed to work. --Chrisjander 12:44, 1 March 2006 (PST)


Well as a BST i don't SC either. I was just trying to put back in the charts since Zero complained aboved about their being moved. --Gahoo 15:42, 1 March 2006 (PST)


In case anyone is interested, the way I determined the elemental attributes of all the weapon skills is by looking at where they lie on Aden's chart. Example: Piercing Arrow is in the section that has a nice pretty picture of water behind it (with the 'A' attribute), as well as in the section for light (with a 'B' attribute). Things may very well be wrong at this point - I haven't looked at all this in probably about 2 years...I'm up for taking a look through it all now, but in the future (whenever I decide to go into hiding - I like to do that at times :-P ), now anyone can figure out how to classify them! :-D Just thought I'd share! --Rixie--

Another quick note: I think when I fist did this the higher level weapon skills were still being worked out...so that may be why the Full Swing part is messed up. Or I could have just been dead wrong (which is known to happen...hehe) --Rixie--

Ok, should all be updated to match the most recent chart put out by Aden (thank you very much Mr. Nak!) --Rixie--

Remove the SC tables?

I feel the Skill chain tables (the ones that list across the top and sides: Liquefaction, Detonation, Induration, etc) are just not necessary... It's much easier to find that info in the little lists below the tables. What do you guys think though? Don't wanna go deleting stuff like that without a general concensus. Thanks! --Rixie--


I find I'm always scrolling past that part, I dont' find that info useful at all, so I have no problem removing it. --Chrisjander 10:03, 7 March 2006 (PST)



Max Damage

Finally, regarding the [url=http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/index.php/Renkei]Renkei[url] article...the article lists the maximum damage values for the different levels of skillchains. However, I have found that when multiple Skillchains are performed in a row, the last is always stronger than the previous, even if you're performing Skillchains of the same level. I then proceeded to find the damage values for all Skillchain levels up to the 5th Skillchain. There seems to be no limit to the number of skillchains you can perform before you stop seeing an increase in damage; I suspect there may be a limit to the percentage, rather than the number of skillchains. Due to the difficulty of testing, I stopped my research, but I believe it's a non-issue, because I've never heard of any strategy where one would perform so many skillchains in a row that reaching the limit, if it exists, would be possible.

Renkei Level 2 3 4 5
Single-Element 0.5 0.6? etc. ...
Double-Element 0.5 0.6? etc. ...
Light/Dark 1.0 1.5 etc ...

I'm not sure how resistance rate of renkei damage is calculated; it's possible that the game takes any of the mean, peak, or trough resistance rate from among the present element, or something more complicated.

Day/weather bonuses and penalties seem to apply if the renkei contains the proper elements.
