A thrown javelin can pierce up to 5 times. The formula is simple.slam said:is it true that you can wear razortail, and max pierce (total > 100%) and it effects the chance of an attack piercing subsequent times?
Chance to pierce first target: (.71)^1 or (.71) = 71% Chance to pierce second target: (.71)^2 or (.71*.71) = 50% Chance to pierce third target: (.71)^3 or (.71*.71*.71) = 36% Chance to pierce fourth target: (.71)^4 or (.71*.71*.71*.71) = 25% Chance to pierce fifth target: (.71)^5 or (.71*.71*.71*.71*.71) = 18%
First target: 80% 85% 95% 98% Second target: 64% 72% 90% 96% Third target: 51% 61% 85% 94% Fourth target: 40% 52% 81% 92% Fifth target: 32% 44% 77% 90%
until the projectile has reached its limit of distance.. (wich depends on what it is... multi, guided, LF, plague jav, FA etc)Broncobiv2 said:So with 100% pierce (because I think the 95% pierce cap was also a myth), your arrow will go through unlimited enemies?
lol totally agree, why couldn't i have said it like that :Ssir_bazz said:In the end your gonna want load on up on MF. So razortail comes off and goldwrap goes on.
In other words your gonna sacrifice some killing speed for more MF.
Even when levelling within a group you'll find that 70% pierce is good enough to be a valuable contributor in Baal runs.
Nope, sorry. Razortail is the only item with % chance to pierce. There are no magical affixes with that attribute. Therefore, magical, rare, and crafted items cannot give you a % chance to pierce. Piercing bows, Razortail, and the Pierce skill are the only way to do it.kornnstein said:hi, im starting a LF/PJ javazon. ive decided to use thundergod so i miss the %pierce from razor. my question is:
if i want to save some skill points from pierce hability, which other items could give me the extra % to pierce i need? (dont name bows as i wont be hybrid)
can i get it from crafted items?
