I have been fighting the Duck with no Name at least a hundred times, and over that time, once I learned Assassin's Strike, I have noticed something. Let's use Assassin's Strike as an example.
A normal hit under normal circumstances does about 220 or so damage. Ok. Looks about right.
A critical hit under normal circumstances does about 450 damage. Looks about right.
A normal hit with stealth does about 450 damage. Looks about right.
A critical hit with stealth does about... 450 damage. Hey, waitaminute!!
It does not seem correct. A critical hit with stealth should about 600+ damage. Easy. And that is with only about 1.5 times instead of 2.0 times as it goes with criticals. Because I have seen the 600+ damage before. It was more in the 700+ range to be exact.
Something to me does not seem to add up, and I really want to know if that is how it is supposed to go, or if there is something that makes it not do the damage that I expect to see.
Ratbeard mentions the 'cherry on top' that is the reward for determination and perseverence, but .... what really is the point of a cherry on top there if you are being prevented from putting a cherry on top here?
Some of the most rewarding moments in any rpg game is just that. The cherry on top. And seeing huge numbers of damage. Wizard101 does not have that, so, I have to ask the developers ... why Pirate101?
