• Pororoca Shoes does not bypass MDEF by level of Frost Nova * 5%

    • Item Name: Pororoca Shoes
      Item ID: 22104
      Item Correct Behavior:

      Pororoca Shoes should bypass MDEF of target. That is 5% MDEF per level of Frost Nova if player is equipped with La'cryma Stick


      Screenshot & Proof: Fixed

    When I have no Frost Nova the damage was this:


    When I learned Lvl 10 Frost Nova, 50% of Target's MDEF was not bypassed. The damage remained on the same range as having no Frost Nova:

    @Yuuki, the MDEF of Lvl 150 Egg is 158. And if it bypasses enemy MDEF, why only 10%?

    Pororoca Shoes


    From the script:

    1 bonus bMdef,15;
    bonus bMaxHPrate,3+7*(getrefine()>=5)+10*(getrefine()>=7);
    bonus bMaxSPrate,3+7*(getrefine()>=5)+10*(getrefine()>=7);
    bonus bMatkRate,2+3*(getrefine()>=5)+5*(getrefine()>=7);
    bonus2 bAddEle,Ele_Water,2+3*(getrefine()>=5)+5*(getrefine()>=7);
    skill "SA_DELUGE",5;
    { bonus2 bAddEle,Ele_Water,4*getequiprefinerycnt(EQI_HAND_R);
    bonus bIgnoreMdefRate,getskilllv("WZ_FROSTNOVA");
    bonus2 bSkillAtk,"WZ_WATERBALL",30*getskilllv("WZ_WATERBALL")+20*getequiprefinerycnt(EQI_HAND_R);

    That bonus should be bonus bIgnoreMdefRate,5*getskilllv("WZ_FROSTNOVA");

    158 mdef is around 52.2% magic damage reduction. With 50% mdef bypass it should be around 40% magic damage reduction. You should use recognized magic to lower the variance for more concise result.

    Mdef scaling sucks tbh. Its utterly ridiculous.

    Being one of the hardest items to make in the game, can we please make it work like it should? (and spelled like it should would be nice too)

    Exhibit A : Priest with 120 Hard MDEF (ASSUMP)


    Exhibit B : Warlock with Pororoca and Level 10 Frost Nova dealing 7635 dmg (Recognized Spell)


    Exhibit 3 : Warlock with exact same items, and 0 Frost Nova dealing 7246 dmg


    I'm not great at ROmath, but 50% MDEF bypass on 120 MDEF does not sound like <400 dmg variance.
