    Ravens are actually useful?!?

    I have done the math and here is how it adds up...
    Damage Hits Ravens Potential Avg.
    2-4 12 1 24-48 36
    3-5 13 2 78-130 104
    4-6 14 3 168-252 210
    5-7 15 4 300-420 360
    6-8 16 5 480-640 560
    7-9 17 5 595-765 680
    8-10 18 5 720-900 810
    9-11 19 5 855-1045 950
    10-12 20 5 1000-1200 1100
    11-13 21 5 1155-1365 1260
    12-14 22 5 1320-1540 1430
    13-15 23 5 1495-1725 1610
    14-16 24 5 1680-1920 1800
    15-17 25 5 1875-2125 2000
    16-18 26 5 2080-2340 2210
    17-19 27 5 2295-2565 2430
    18-20 28 5 2520-2800 2670
    19-21 29 5 2755-3045 2920
    20-22 30 5 3000-3300 3150
    21-23 31 5 3255-3565 3450

    Sorry about the non alignment I'm unsure of how to make a table.

    But again with 3450 avg dmg at lv 20 you could do some impressive damage at low lvs. Each hit is garunteed and can sometimes blind which is a great factor. I realize that they aren't meatwalls and recasting can be a drag but with a Grizzly with lv 20 dire wolf and lv 20 oak sage your quite hard to kill.

    Pure Summon druid would probs have them maxed along with HOW just for fun as there are very little else worthwhile.

    But then again they have such small damage that most of it will be resisted. I mainly use them for crowd control.

    Slvl 20+ Ravens would contribute to some killing in Normal, but outside of that, monsters will regen any damage they take from Ravens. Also, even with focus fire, 31 pecks takes a really long and boring time.

    I heard higher level increases chance to blind hence why I maxed it...... that and not casting it as often. At 45 only does 50 ish damage... Any idea how the chance to blind works?

    I don't sorry. and 5 ravens with hitting could be able to take out health regen with a Grizzy.

    Re: Ravens are actually useful?!?

    That's a good question. I would like to know how chance to blind actually works. I have always liked ravens as a distraction for crowd control but have never found them good killers.

    Re: Ravens are actually useful?!?

    IIRC it's based on Your level, the kill level of the spell, and the level of the monster being attacked. In my experience more points = greater chance to blind and longer blind duration.

    Today helped my friend killing Normal Diablo with he's druid and... level 5 Ravens took about half the Diablo's health... :D Merc did the rest... Sure, it took some time, but it worked.

    Years ago I had this low level 10-12 pure summoner with Spirit Wolves and Ravens, and I would enter games and attack someone, LOL.

    I won every time until I ran into someone with Sigon's Set.

    :coffee:
