1. ## How do calculations for (Advanced) Homing work?

I'm in the middle of creating a Gunslinger calculator and I'd really like to know how the damage for it works. Oh, and once I finish this calculator I'll be sure to release it here. :)

2. Base Damage * (1 + AdvancedHomingLVL/100)

3. Thanks. In return, here's what the beginnings of the calculator looks like:

4. Quite preoccupied with misc. projects of late eh fiel?

5. Got more time on my hands than usual. Might as well. It helps to keep me busy. I've been wanting to do this stuff for quite some time. *sighs*

6. Cool stuff, but the color scheme is awful D:

7. Gonna plug in this formula because I wonder how Advanced Homing adds damage.

If damage = 5,000 and defense = 1,000

((5,000 x 1.2) -1,000) x 3.8 (Level 30 Cannon) = 19,000
((5,000-1,000) x 1.2) x 3.8 (Level 30 Cannon) = 18,240

Which one is the correct way to calculate the 20% bonus damage?

8. By base damage, it's better to use the skill % damage not your actual damage, but i guess both ways work, so whatever.

Def is applied before everything else iirc, so the second way.

9. That one. I had a Corsair friend test this with me earlier. It's a 1.2 multiplier after defense; it works the same way as Berserk (so it multiplies crits by 1.2 as well). It does not add 20% to each hit (like crit).

10. So cool. Can't wait till this is released.

@Dusk I don't think the color schemes are that bad.

12. String fix patch?
Kidding, Fiel, do what you like.

As Kaida said, advanced Homing is an after-multiplier since it's applied to the monster. Meaning theoretically, it might be possible to hit 1.2x the standard damage cap, or currently 239998. No one's going to have a high enough range to hit that much even with Air Strike, though, let alone Cannon.

Not true in general, though. Elemental advantage, Combo, Amp, and others are before-multipliers and applied to all character damage.

Edit: Well no, elements don't abide by that rule. I'm not sure what's up with that.

13. Because I'm not too proficient with any GUI maker - Swing, tk, whatever. A spreadsheet already has all the nuts and bolts - I just gotta put in the formulas and voila.

14. I hate ugly spreadsheets. I also hate designing GUIs though...
