# Poe2 Weapon Damage Formula ? We need more precision in UI

## Recommended Posts

Not enough penetration multiplier is  *0.25 instead of the displayed * 0.3 [rounding issue] ..

But for the fallowing example I am at a loss as to the math used :

Devoted Axe Crit:

UI numbers

17.8  Roll

33% might ; 70% crit [0.25 base + 0.2 axe + 0.25 devoted]; 15% fine

total damage listed as 43.9 * 1.3 = 51 !!!

----------

17.8 * 1.33 * (1 + 0.15 + (0.25 + 0.2 + 0.25)) = 43.79   //  different from 43.9 . So maybe the shown 'roll' is already rounded.. Meaning proper tests will still need to remove weapon RNG for maximum precision .  (unless they provide more precision / less rounding in UI)

Because what fallows is quite ridiculous

43.9 * 1.3 = 57.07  QUITE A WAY OFF FROM THE LISTED 51 !!!

If players cannot fallow the presented the numbers with math ..then the presented numbers are USELESS !!

43.9 * 1.25 = 54.875
(17.8 + 0.05) * 1.33 * (1 + 0.15 + (0.25 + 0.2 + 0.25)) * 1.25 = 54.89 !!

There’s a thread with some math in the bug forum but it’s old; I’m afraid I don’t have a link handy right now.

>>but MIG is multiplicative in Deadfire (it was additive in PoE.)

>>Overpenetration is also multiplicative

treated as such in the calculations in the OP

the step  math mentioned by the dev there [but not really explained -or maybe he did explained and I just don't get it  ]... ?!??! WHY ?!?!?

?Why use simple math when you can make it complicated ?
