hi ho WT,
I build Jericho and upgraded his tactic "rapid fire" to level 3 and equipped him with that.
the tactic doesnt seem to work. subjectively he isnt firing any faster, but should have the 500% reload speed increase.
now, I dont have the stats for jericho (maybe you can provide them here).
so I calculated a bit with the hellhound stats (assuming he will be pretty much the same).
for a hellhound the following is true:
firerate: 2,667 "projectiles" per sec
reloadtime: 3 secs
so his firing time (to empty the clip) is 1,12 secs.
a firecycle is 4,12 secs (emptying clip + reload).
increasing the reload by 500%, means the new reload would be 0,5 secs instead of 3 secs.
so a firecycle would be 1,62 secs instead of 4,12 secs.
if the numbers for jericho are like the ones from hellhound, he should be shooting 2.5 the number of rockets with "rapid fire" active.
rapid fire holds 7 secs. so that would be 4.3 firecycles or 12,96 projectiles/missiles in 7 secs.
visually it looks like he is firing way less in the time "rapid fire" is active.
could you a) provide the numbers for jericho? and b) check if all works fine with "rapid fire" - it seems to not deliver what it promisses.
thx in advance.
a few more numbers for everyone who might be interested.
"rapid fire" means 150% bonus damage for 7 secs which can be sustained to max 21 secs (3 times "rapid fire" activation" - that equals to about 2.8 mio damage from a promoted jericho alone.
normal hellhounds in range receive the same damage increase. so if you use 8 HH and jericho in a toon you get another bonus of about 4.2 mio damage (if your HH are promoted).
together thats 7 mio bonus damage in 21 secs. which equals to a toon of 14 additional HH. so basically if you use that tactic and if it works properly you will be attacking with a toon thats worth 22 HH and 1 jericho (damage wise, of course you dont have the health of 22 HH, only that of 8).
alltogether (if no HH or jericho dies during those 21 secs) you will be doing about 13 mio damage (modified by damage filters of course, if they still exist). thats a DPS of about 620K or the firepower of 6 sandstorms.
