I’ve created some sql files for levels 81-100. I was going to post them here, but I am not allowed to upload sql files. Can I be given permission to upload sql files? Or is there a way I can somehow share my sql files with this community?
I’d recommend you use http://pastebin.com/ just go there, paste whatever content is in your sql file ,(optionally) choose SQL from the Syntax Highlight drop down list, and bring the link back here. You save the trouble and can post whatever you want and the other people save having to download the file. Win win.
Hope I helped.
PS: you don’t even have to register and the pastes last forever.
I looked at the numbers from 1 to 80, I looked at how they changed from level to level and also how they changed every 10 levels. Got a feel for how progression works, and then I just made up numbers which progressed in a similar manner. I even graphed some stuff to see that it ‘flowed’ the way I planned it to.
I dumped the existing data into a few spreadsheets, used equations to see how the stats changed (the difference) from level to level, and then I found the difference of those differences to see how they were trending.
Stats fom 1 - 60 is fairly linear. 60 - 70 is linear but much steeper. 70 - 80 is not so steep, but also linear.
You should have a look at some of the numbers. Some surprising patterns show up. I was able to dertermine (verify) what the primary stats were for each class by looking at these numbers.
I assume numbers have been taken from observation of official blizz stats, but there are some really strange stuff in them (especially the pet_levelstats). Some numbers progress genereally linearly until level 70 and suddenly the drop massively and then jump back up during those levels from 70 - 80. Some progress upwards and then in the mid 70’s they drop to 1 and stay there… It’s very curious.
Generally, I looked for trends in the stats (by comparing existing numbers) and then I continued those trends, to certain degree.
Each expansion changed the scale of inflation for all stats. IIRC going from BC to WotLK was a massive boost in health relative to all other things, to try and stem off some of the ever rapidly escalating damage making fights too short. Then WotLK to Cata was a very minimal gain instead.
Has this been done before and how does this compare to other attempts at this?
Has anyone tested this to level 100? I’m curious if it makes small server play possible in some of the big raid dungeons. Does this mess up existing > level 80 mobs stats making them easier/harder?
I have about 2-3 people on my server and even the easier Outland dungeons are pretty tough to handle for my level 80 mage. I’m going to have to make some kind of changes or most of the high level content will just destroy our little groups.
