Dungeon Defenders II game Status:
Series EV Tower Buff Beam & Tower Stats
Does anyone already have some data on the scaling of this thing?
Because from what i can see so far the EVs tower stats get largely diminishing returns very quickly on the buff beam. Heres what i got so far, with 2075 tower health, 635 attack, 806 range and 681 speed the 5 stared beam gets 2,10 damage boost, 2,01 resistance boost, 1,58 range boost and 1.70 speed boost. And the biggest part of the boosts comes from upgrading the beam to 5 stars, not from the stats itself. Also the resistance boost is a meager 2,01 despite being governed by tower health.
Of all the stats damage seems to scale best, geting a 2,10 boost despite having the lowest value, followed by speed geting a 1,70 boost at the second lowest value.
The question is now this, do i level another EV for buff beams or is it not worth it seeing that i already can get 2 times the damage and 1,7 time the attack speed with the beam from my wall builder WITHOUT having invested anything into another stat than tower health.
So post your EV tower stats and what your tower beam gets as boost factor below so we can see how this thing works out.
2.01 resistance boost is in no way "meager." you are effectively doubling the innate damage resistance your walls and towers have. it is ridiculous effective when playing maps with setups that afford the DU to use them.
my EV currently has 750 to thp/tdmg/dur and 900 to speed, and my buffbeam is at 2.14/1.95/1.58/1.71 i also have 750 hp and attack, and my gear is pretty horribad. i really see no reason to need to make a second EV for whatever reason.
He wasn't saying that the boost was meager, he was saying that the amount was meager because it's governed by his main stat.
I have 2EV's 1 is a full HP wall builder, the other is a general tower set for buff beams.
I am glad that you dont need 2000+ stats to make a good buff beam and I see the reason for the sharp roll off because else it would be crappy for players without uber high stats or it would be incredibly over powered (3x boost+) for those that do.
Seems pretty balanced to me, you can eeek out a bit more power if you have the gear and mana to spare and if you dont you wont lose sleep over it.
