So recently, despite thinking about how bad the dragonlord sword is, I started to think if dragonlord ranger weapons and dragonlord rogue weapons match up. My results were astonishing! Now, I am going to write this post, then you may have to look at the pictures in a random order, but Im going to try to make this as simple and as clear as possible. First I want to start off with, everyone knows how bad rangers have been hit compared to rogues on skills and dps. Now I want to emphasize the toll the auto dmg is taking compared to rogues. All these calculations are based off end game, Dragonlord weapons. So this is what I have got, and the process it took to get this info:
Rangers auto dmg with dragonlord bow is 155, with a speed of 2860.
Rogues auto dmg with dragonlord dagger is 110, with a speed of 1850.
First what I did was that I took these 2 speeds, and found the LCM (least common multiple). I found that the LCM between these 2 in speed was 529,100. I took this number, and I divided it by the speed of the ranger dragonlord mainhand, and I got that rangers hit 185 times in this duration. I then took the same number, and divided it by the speed of the rogue dagger, and then I got 286 hits in this time. So the rogue dagger hits 286 times every 185 ranger hits. This is where it gets interesting! If you take the auto dmg of rogue rondel (110), and multiply it by the number of hits you output, you get a number of 31,460 dmg without the offhand. I then took the auto dmg of rangers bow (155) and I multiplied it by the amount of times it would shoot (185), and my result was 28,675 damage. Wow. In the same amount of time a ranger hits 28,675 dmg, a rogue hits 31,360 dmg. Thats a 2.785 damage difference, just with the mainhand. I then took this number of damage, and started to multiply the number of pierce it would take by the number of hits it lands to find out the damage that it would require to even match up with dragonlord dagger, and found that it would take 185 pierce on the bow. My proof to this is 185 x 185 is 529,100, compared to 185 x 155, which is only 443,300. I decided I would go a bit further. As you can see in the pictures below, the stats of damage of both the dragonlord quiver and dragonlord rondel are the same, I added the 35 dmg to both the dagger and bow. The bow ends up with only 190 pierce, while the dagger only ends up with 145 pierce. I then took the same number of hits that they would do and multiplied this new number with the number of hits. 145 x 286 is 41,470. The bow hits this in the same time: 185 x 190 is 35,150 dmg. Wow, a whopping 6,320 dmg despite the fact its only 35 pierce more. (41,470  35,150 is 6,320). Why does a class, that is "balanced to rogue" affected not only by the skills they have, but also the auto damage. Why is this fair?
Injustice to rangers
