Stats on torches

Another question on the torch issues.

When someone advertise a torch with 19/19...what does that mean? Do all torches give +3 to skills? and is the 19/19 based on additional resistance?

the only variable stats are:
+10-20 to stats
+10-20 to resis all
the +3 are fix but the charakter class alter

let's say you see an advertisment like 16/18 druid torch, this means: +16 to stats +18 resis and +3 to skills for druids. A minority will advertise the same torch as 18/16.

Thank you! That explains a lot! Do not know why people pay so much more for say 10 extra in each stat and res...i mean, that does not give such an advantage. You can max your res without much trouble anyway. It is the +3 skill that really makes the difference. And that, you get on each torch anyway. Or am I missing something?

People like perfection. Simple as that :wink:.

Yeah but it is contradicting. The same people who would buy a perfect torch, could go with one smite point, since the economy of scale does not hine in favour maxing this out.

I have even heard the anti perfect torches, 10/10 are more valuable than the middle ones...this is proof this game gets boring to some people! ;o)

The +10 extra resists from a 20 resist Torch compared to a 10 resist Torch might mean that you get to take out the Um in your helm and stick in something else. Also the extra stats mean more base points go into life, which might make a huge difference if you're a barbarian, who gets 4 points of life per vitality. The bonuses are even greater if you're blocking, since you can also skimp on points needed for max block also if you're using a higher Torch versus a low one.

That's right, however I think Mio's talking about the huge difference (in trading value) between a 19/19 and a 20/20 Torch, whereas the impact on the char's final stats is negligible.

Go on, You tell him frosty!!! ;o)

But I take your point morfois. i guess it all comes down to who is rich and poor in this game. To me it might sound expensive, but for someone with a mule and 50 ists just lying around, perfection sounds like a Bang of Olofson tv!

A 20/20 just looks so much pimper than a 19/19. :tongue:
I suppose that's why people shell out so much for one. Myself, I'm content with any 15/15-ish Torch.

However, the OP did wonder the difference between a 10/10 and a 20/20 Torch, not a 19/19 versus a 20/20. :azn:
