I would expect the hate generated by Warcry to depend on how many people it hits, like the hate for bard songs. --Valyana 10:38, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

Its generally accepted that Warcry has the same amount of hate attached to it as a Provoke. I've seen it hit 2 people and cause a mob to turn as much as I've seen it turn after hitting 6. The enmity spike is most likely attributed to the fact that it is hitting the user, and not because it is hitting everyone else. --TtOaXrIuCTC 11:14, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

Precise numbers

Similarly to the theory I posted on the Talk:Last_Resort page, it seems Warcry gives a bonus of 13/256 (5.078125%) attack, not 5.25%.

Numbers (still DRK73/WAR36, still no gear equipped) :
Attack with a Scythe : 369.
Attack with Warcry : 387.

369*(1+12/256)=386.296875. Too low.
369*1.0525=388.3725 => The 5.25% increase listed at the moment is too high.

If you've got numbers to prove this wrong or back it up, please post them. --AshmadaLakshmi 10:10, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

im not sure what the exact amount is, but i do know that as a ninja, my warcry is gives less atk then when a war uses it (about 8~15 or so less i think) possibly based on the atk, or str of the user? or maybe just less effect if subbed? --rOg \ TaLk 06:39, 20 August 2007 (CDT)

I just tested the "lesser effect when subbed" theory, and it appears to be correct:

WAR37/DRK18, naked with a Dagger (only weapon I had under 37) :
Attack without buffs : 151.
Attack with Warcry : 159.

DRK73/WAR36, without a weapon (I have a low H2H skill, helps to get Attack low enough) and with a few +Attack gear:
Attack without buffs : 151.
Attack with Warcry : 158.

Subjob isn't the only way to explain the discrepancy, and my numbers are too low to prove much, but it is intriguing.
Can you please provide numbers the next time you experience the phenomenon ?--AshmadaLakshmi 12:44, 21 August 2007 (CDT)

it would appear to be based on war level.

just tested:

nin/war 386 without warcry 407 with warcry 407/386= 5.44% increase

war/sam 419 without warcry 456 with warcry 456/419= 8.83% increase

going to update main page --rOg \ TaLk 20:15, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
