 937 posts Better late then never, as some people say. Since I don’t feel like typing long explanations, here’s some basic math provig that Legendary items are better than IXH on Infested raids. EdC+Prep+SF+FA = 86.8% (90%) RS+FA unknown, so I just rounded up EdC combo. Since main power of IXH lies in proc, any further dmg increase from tactics increases usefulness of Legendaries even more. Notation: att/def dmg (4*att+def) avg proc dmg (proc rate*cap) dmg with EdC combo assuming 90% increase final dmg: tactics combo + avg proc dmg OH: whip 2 84/28 84*4+28 = 364 0.05*800 = 40 364*1.9 = 691.6 691.6 + 0 = 691.6 (note that due to bug I take 0 as proc value in final calculation) IXH 35/45 35*4+45 = 185 0.05*5500 = 275 185*1.9 = 351.5 351.5 + 275 = 626.5 XH 33/40 33*4+40 = 172 0.05*4400 = 220 172*1.9 = 326.8 326.8 + 220 = 546.8 Pants: Upgr. Cloorians 55/65 55*4+65 = 285 0.08*800 = 64 (proc rate based on small sample, but due to small cap even 5% rate wouldn’t change outcome) 285*1.9 = 541.5 541.5 + 64 = 605.5 IXH 44/44 44*4+44 = 220 0.05*3200 = 160 (assuming 5% rate, since it’s rate of XH and many other pants, according to official forums observed rate is 3.5%; I doubt that, but if it was true it would increase gap between Mega Cloorians and IXH pants even further) 220*1.9 = 418 418 + 160 = 578 XH 42/43 42*4+43 = 211 0.05*2675 = 133.75 211*1.9 = 400.9 400.9 + 133.75 = 534.65 Chest: ABC 80/72 80*4+72 = 392 0.08*330 = 26.4 392*1.9 = 744.8 (this baby is a real beast and shows how proc worshippers should learn math, raw stats + tactics = pure awesomness) 744.8 + 26.4 = 771.2 IXH 47/44 47*4+44 = 232 0.05*5215 = 260.75 (huuge proc compared to ABC (10 times more!) so it has to be better, right? Right?!?) 232*1.9 = 440.8 440.8 + 260.75 = 701.55 (Wrong!) XH 44/42 44*4+42 = 218 0.05*4185 = 209.25 218*1.9 = 414.2 414.2 + 209.25 = 623.45 Helmet: Proc rate on Mask on Vengeance is unknown, besides I have Crown and don’t have Mask, so I don’t really care at this point. If you want to see if it’s any good, I leave it to you as exercise :P ) Thanks to Kudon for finding out cap on IXH Chest. 410 posts You mean you dont go nekkid to all infestation parties? hmm, that seems to make it harder to get infested…. 169 posts I wish I had seen this sooner, before I got to 800m damage… Oh well, this is still awesome info, thanks. So, should I assume IXH gear is the best for gloves, shoes, and helm? And, reasonably speaking, for MH? Because I assume its not as good as chunjie jian, but all I have is crimson energy claw… 937 posts Unless stated otherwise, all my research compares free* items. Yes, IXH Flamethrower is best MH both for Infested and regular raids (stats on wiki are 1 lower than actual). Same for gloves and boots (unless 2 Al-Sahra items combined are better, which I doubt). *with amount of dmg required and scarcity of sphere fragments, I do not consider All Star or Hyperspace Hero truly free items :P 79 posts Is it known whether wearing IXH/XH items affect rates of random item drop on these raids? That might make a lot of difference.
