People keep asking me how to calculate damages. Here’s what i found.
number of units \* damage \* (1+|atk-def|/30)^SIGN (atk-def) \* (1 + class bonus) \* (1 + feature bonus) \* (1 – resistance) \* (1 – Ranged unit’s Penalty)
number of units : number of attacker’s units.
damage : damage of attacker. if attacker’s damage range is 10-14, that means it has 20% chance to deal one of 10,11,12,13 or 14 damage.
atk : attacker’s attack stat
def : defender’s defense stat
| x | : Absolute number of x ( x if x\>=0 else -x)
SIGN x : sign of x (1 if x\>0, 0 if x=0, -1 if x\<0)
class bonus : Look at the diagram in army management screen. Outer arrow gives 15% bonus and inner arrow gives 7%. i.e) Healer deals 15% more dmg against mage, 7% more against defender, no bonus for others
feature bonus : some units have features. i.e)gunners have Heavy Missile, which gives 15% bonus on them against any immortals.
resistance : defender’s resistance for attacker’s attack type. Assassins have physical damage type, and Paladins have 40% physical resistance. so 40% of damage diminishes when assassins attack paladins.
Ranged Unit’s Penalty : Ranged unit deals 50% less damage on the targets out of their range, 30% less for targets next to it.
when 50 druids attack Zombies next to them.(both of them have no items, and aren’t upgraded)
50 \* (11~13) \* ( 1 + |9(druid attack) – 10(Zombie’s defense)|/30)^SIGN (9-10) \* (1 + 7%(Healer’s class bonus on Defender)) \* (1+ 15%(druid’s Surge of Power feature bonus)) \* (1 – 0%(Zombie’s magical resistance is 0)) \* (1-30%(ranged units’ penalty when they attack units next to them))
= 50 \* (11~13) \* (1+ 0.0333)^-1 \* 1.07 \* 1.15 \* 1 \* 0.7
= (11~13) \* 41.835
if it crits, it deals 1.5X damage.
so it’s gonna be like..
460 dmg : 31.67%
502 dmg : 31.67%
544 dmg : 31.67%
690 dmg : 1.67%
753 dmg : 1.67%
816 dmg : 1.67%
If you find this formula doesn’t work for you, inform me what you found.
(but you’d better review it several times, since i tested it more than a hundred times. I found some round-up problems, which make around 0.05%~0.1% error. but I’m never gonna try to find out what’s wrong with it. :p )

Did you notice the date of the first post? Back then all these attributes had 1 or 2 digits only (for example a champ mail would give +4 defence while now gives +41) . After a patch, a year ago, Nival raised the attributes (added a digit) so as to be more precise. It was with the patch that also raised the upgrades of creatures from 5 to 15.
