Damage and open wounds So, i'm trying to work out how you calculate the best weapon. From the strategy compendium Weapon Minimum Damage = Base Minimum Damage * (1+ (+x % Enhanced Damage)/100) + (+x to Minimum Damage) Weapon Maximum Damage = Base Maximum Damage * (1+ (+x % Enhanced Damage)/100) + (+x to Maximum Damage) +x % Enhanced Damage and +x to Minimum/Maximum Damage in this case is only what is shown on the weapon. Ok -i can work that out - but what is the damage. It can't be damage per second as that depends on ias and the type of weapon etc. So, it is damage per frame or something else. In other words how do I get to a simple damage per second for a melee weapon Next open wounds. from the comendium again "Open Wounds has a duration of 200 Frames (8 Seconds) and will reset the timer if reapplied. It's not actual damage but a Negative Life Regenration". A nice formula in the compendium tells me how to calculate damage per second but I don't understand the negative life regeneration bit. Is it actual damage or does it simply slow the life regeneration after a hit?
