  • Detrimental Duration focus effect

    I'm unsure how active these boards still are but thought I'd post here anyway. I recently went through the trouble of buying https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/...ml?item=134922 thinking it would always apply 35% duration to spells like DoT's and debuffs. I found it is only applying up to 35% randomly so sometimes will only add one tick etc. Did they change how this works? I could have swore it would previously just apply the full 35%.

    Hi, I picked up a variant of this last night. I’m going to rest this in a little bit.

    I think we may be the only people still alive here.

      Xikariz, yes, it appears to be working. If I unequip all spell duration items, my Burning Shadow Rak. II has a duration of 1:24. If I equip an item with Memories of Velious, increases the duration of spells by 26%, the duration is now 1:24 (1:30 - 1:42) or 15 to 17 ticks. If I equip the ingenious descending moon earring with Wrath of Ages, increases the duration of detrimental spells by 35%, the duration reads 1:24 (1:30 - 1:48) 15-18 ticks. I’m going to test actual results on a combat dummy now.

        With the earring, in the test, I got 18 ticks, 16 ticks, 16 ticks, 17 ticks. It appears to be working in game too.

          Hey Xihariz!

          I pop in now-and-again, but there just isn't much activity here anymore. I took a long hiatus from the game and came back to only a couple of threads having been used.

          I have the Vital Moon version of the earring and it seems to be working for me.

            Thanks for replying but perhaps I was unclear in my original post.

            What I was expecting to happen, was if the earring said it applied 35% duration, that it would always add an additional 35% duration to the spell, similar to how I'd expect an item with 35% beneficial buff extension to always add an extra 35% on top of a buff's duration.

            However, as Sareth confirmed, it is adding on a random duration with a maximum of 35%, and not a fixed additional duration.

            I was just curious when this went live, because it has been quite some time since I played regularly, but I could have swore that items with detrimental duration extension would always add a fixed percentage and not a random percentage - at least I thought that's how they worked years ago.

              It adds between 1%-35% duration extension, with a minimum of one tick. Same deal with the Tonic of Efficiency Affinity potions, which add a minimum of one tick.

                is this in the raw spell data? to me, it looks like if the spell is 4+ ticks, you get the full bonus.
