Welcome to Gaia! ::

z!F Guide to Rings and Stats


Important Notice: All information in this guide is approximate and for rings that are CL 10*.


Welcome to the zOMG! Forum's Numerical Analysis Thread. (God that's a mouthful). This thread aims to provide definitive numbers to compare rings and what they do so that users can make informed decisions about which ring is better biggrin

( If you have trouble reading or understanding the guide, please post to let us know where the problem is. We're aware that it may not be particularly user friendly, and would like to change that. )

It's not quite complete, but the bulk of the data is there. Most of what's missing is either really really hard to do, or downright impossible >.>;;

Oh, and I should mention that this guide is accurate as of August 2013 (PST) as far as we know.

Incidentally, the # shows the rings comparative DPS ranking. Hack is the highest at #1, Hornet's Nest the lowest at #14. This assumes only 1 target is hit as well.

Base Statistics
----------------------


The base statistics are the abilities your character possesses based purely on his or her OCL (Overall Charge Level), which is a weighted average of your rings as shown below.



Health: 1000 (C.L. x 100)
Stamina: 100 (Static)
Ghi: 100 (Static)

---

Accuracy: 500 (C.L. x 50)
Dodge: 500 (C.L. x 50)
Willpower: 500 (C.L. x 50)
Speed: 192 (Static)
Weight: 100 (Static)
HP Regeneration: 30 (C.L. x 3)
Stamina Regeneration*: 2 standing, 8 kneeling (Static)
Luck: 0 (Static)

---

OCL: [ ( 8*R1 ) + ( 7*R2 ) + ( 6*R3 ) + ( 5*R4 ) + ( 4*R5 ) + ( 3*R6 ) + ( 2*R7 ) + ( 1*R8 ) ] / 36

R(n) refers to the nth highest level ring's C.L. R1 is the highest C.L. of your rings, R2 the second etc...

Empty ring slots count as C.L. 1.0 rings in the calculation.



*Base standing stamina regeneration not properly shown unless a stamina buff is used. Only standing stamina regeneration values are only visible. Kneeling regen is invisible.

Armor Rings
----------------------


Armor Rings directly reduce the amount of damage recieved from an Animated's attack. Unless otherwise stated, all Armor rings affect everyone on the screen who is crewed with the target when used. Armor Rings will also stack their effects with each other. For example if a player is buffed by Teflon and Improb, they'll have incoming damage first reduced by 15% for Improb, then the remaining damage is reduced by 15% for Teflon (and so on should other buffs be present)

Persistent Armor bonuses are calculated before Armor Pools are calculated.

If you're still confused, swarf has a developer's guide to the zOMG! Armour System here.

User ImageUse the Improbability Sphere to give you or a friend moderate defense (Persistent Armor), as well as to Reflect an attack back against the attacker of you or a friend! Any attack Reflected back on the attacker does the damage to the attacker instead. Higher Rage Ranks increase the amount of Armor and the…probability...that Reflection will occur.


Duration: 15 Minutes
Stamina Cost: 11.11 Stamina
Cooldown: 15 seconds

RR1 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 3% Reflection
RR2 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 8% Reflection
RR3 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 9% Reflection
RR4 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 10% Reflection

Pot Lid
User ImageUse Pot Lid to give you or a friend moderate defense (Persistent Armor) and to sometimes Deflect an attack away from you or a friend completely. Any Deflected attack is nullified completely! Higher Rage Ranks make it more and more likely that a Deflection will occur on an attack.


Duration: 15 Minutes
Stamina Cost: 11.11 Stamina
Cooldown: 15 seconds

RR1 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 2% Deflection
RR2 -> 15% Persistent Armor + ??? Deflection
RR3 -> 15% Persistent Armor + ??? Deflection
RR4 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 14% Deflection

Rock Armour
User ImageCover each of your allies in Rock Armor giving them strong protection against incoming damage. (Armor Pool) The Rock Armor lasts for several minutes, or until it absorbs enough damage to break up. Higher Rage Ranks make stronger and stronger Armor.


Duration: 15 Minutes
Stamina Cost: 11.11 Stamina
Cooldown: 15 seconds

RR1 -> 25% Armor Pool, 20000 damage absorbed
RR2 -> 28% Armor Pool, 30000 damage absorbed
RR3 -> 31% Armor Pool, 40000 damage absorbed
RR4 -> 34% Armor Pool, 50000 damage absorbed

Teflon Spray
User ImageThis makes some of any incoming damage bounce away instead of hurting you or a friend (Persistent Armor). At higher Rage Ranks, it also makes your target harder to hit (Dodge) and eventually can occasionally Reflect an attack back against your foe.


Duration: 15 Minutes
Stamina Cost: 11.11 Stamina
Cooldown: 15 Seconds

RR1 -> 15% Persistent Armor
RR2 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 20 Dodge
RR3 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 30 Dodge + ??? Reflection
RR4 -> 15% Persistent Armor + 50 Dodge + 5% Reflection

Turtle
User ImageWhen trouble is overwhelming, the best thing to do is curl up in your shell and hope the bad things go away. This creates a protective field that can absorb an amazing amount of damage out of any incoming attack, but only lasts a short time. (Armor Pool) Higher Rage Ranks create stronger shells.


Range: Self Only
Duration: Varies with RR
Stamina Cost: 11.11 Stamina
Cooldown: 3 Minutes

RR1 -> 100% Armor Pool (5s)
RR2 -> 100% Armor Pool (7.5s)
RR3 -> 100% Armor Pool (11s)
RR4 -> 100% Armor Pool (15s)

Ghi Boosts
----------------------


For in-depth information on ghi, check this guide.

Ghi Abilities are passive boosts to your statistics, that are earned by interacting with the game world (talking, killing monsters, and moving across screens). There are 3 Levels of Ghi Ability (Minor, Normal and Major) and they advance through them. Once you get a complete list of Minor Ghi Buffs for example, your next advancement will change one of the Minor Ghi Buffs into a Normal Ghi Buff.

The power of the Ghi Ability is based on both the level of the Buff, and the amount of Ghi you have ( The G near Stamina ). The number beneath the G represents the percentage of the boost you get. For example, at 50 Ghi, you recieve 100 HP from a Normal Health Buff.

Accuracy
Minor: 20 Accuracy

Normal: 30 Accuracy

Major: 50 Accuracy

Dodge
Minor: 20 Dodge

Normal: 30 Dodge

Major: 50 Dodge

Health
Minor: 120 Health

Normal: 200 Health

Major: 300 Health

Luck
Minor: 2 Luck

Normal: 3 Luck

Major: 5 Luck

Willpower
Minor: 20 Willpower

Normal: 30 Willpower

Major: 50 Willpower

What does it all mean?
----------------------


Well.. If you don't know all the terms, then you probably shouldn't be going into numerical ring analysis, since it's very much geared towards players who have completed the game and are looking to super-power their builds... But I'll provide a quick analysis of what everything means:

AoE: Area of Effect. This ring will affect multiple enemies. Area of Effects can be arcs or circles. Melee AoE is player centered, ranged AoE is target centered.

Duration: The length of time a rings effect is active for. Obviously, attack rings don't generally have this. DoT was measured separately.

Stamina Cost: The amount of stamina that a ring costs to activate. In game, this appears to vary use to use due to rounding.

Cooldown: The amount of time before the ring can be used again.

RR1-4: Rage Ranks. RR1 is no rage, RR4 is when the entire Rage Bar is used to launch the effect. You should know this though.

Persistent Armor: This armor is never going to give you up, never going to let you down... until it's duration runs out. (Persistent Armor is calculated before Armor Pool)

Armor Pool: This armor is generally stronger than Persistent, but will wear off after a certain amount of damage is reached (or it's duration runs out).

DoT: Damage Over Time. Damage is dealt in periodic increments, rather than dealt all at once.

Deflection: Deflection shows as a "DEFLECT!" image above your avatar, and means you take 0 damage from the deflected attack.

Reflection: Reflection shows as a "REFLECT!" image above your avatar, and means you not only take 0 damage, but the Animated gets hurt instead! Now that's karma!

zOMG!: The game. Which you've just lost. >.>;;

Luck: A stat that affects the amount of gold granted. 1 point of luck is a 1% increase in Gold. Boosts to luck do stack.

Salvage: Converts a ring into a number of orbs equal to (C.L - 1) x 5, to a minimum of 1 orb. You will lose this ring permanently, though a replacement may be dropped at a later time.

Rare Ring: A ring that cannot be obtained via normal in-game methods.

----------------------
What do the Ranges mean?
----------------------


Extreme: Extreme Range Rings cover distances of 7 or more avatar widths.

Very Long: Very Long Range Rings cover distances of approximately 6 avatar widths.

Long: Long Range Rings cover distances of approximately 5 avatar widths.

Medium: Medium Range Rings cover distances of approximately 4 avatar widths.

Short: Short Range Rings cover distances of approximately 3 avatar widths.

Poor: Poor Range Rings cover distances of approximately 2.5 avatar widths.

----------------------
Introduction to Crowd Control
----------------------


Fear: Causes the afflicted to move away from the caster, and makes them unable to attack or use skills

Root: Makes the afflicted unable to move. They can still attack those in range.

Sleep: Makes the afflicted unable to move, attack or use skills. Ends if the afflicted is hit by an attack.
