Well, I'm not 100% sure, since I don't know exactly when the game rounds off its numbers in the weapon formula, but I believe it works like this:

One handed:

25-65 base; Ethereal Bonus: 25 x 1.5 = 37.5, 65 x 1.5 = 97.5;

At this point, I believe the game rounds off, so those become 37-97, base damage.

Now, for the weapon damage mods: 37 x 5.15 = 190.55; 97 x 5.15 = 499.55; both round off again, so 1h damage would be 190 - 499.

Two handed:

58-115 base; Ethereal Bonus: 58 x 1.5 = 87, 115 x 1.5 = 172.5, rounds to 172.

Damage Bonus: 87 x 5.15 = 448.05, 172 x 5.15 = 885.8, rounds to 448 - 885.

SO, if I have the rounding steps correct, a perfect, ethereal, superior cb would have 190-499 1h/448-885 2h damage.

hal, why'd you multiply by 5.55 after u calculated the ethereal bonus? Is that the bonus from it being superior? if so, then wouldn't u take that dmg and multiply it by 400% (perf ed i think on botd)?

the numbers (885 max 2h) seem right but i didn't understand the numbers you chose and if you even factored in the ED from botd, or the ed from a superior item.

The ed% from superior is calculated the same way as regular ed%, it does NOT enhance the base damage like the ethereal. So 15% supierior is just an extra 15% ed on top of the base ethereal damage.

Like Omi Said, ethereal bonus is factored in before anything else, which makes it very powerful; then, 5.15 = 100% regular damage of the weapon (as the weapon keeps it's based damage and gets the rest added onto it) + 400% enhanced damage of BotD + 15% superior damage, divided by 100 (to make it a decimal); 515/100 = 5.15, then you multiply that by the base damage to get the actual damage of the weapon.

Just to reassure you Hal, your calcs are flawless.

If you ever want to see a breakdown of the formula or even the full damage, check the stickied post in the General Strat started by Dracoy. Done step by step.
