Experience and skill experience

The experience you gain from monsters is different from Redmoon1:
  • When killing monsters below your own level you gain reduced experience. -1% per level with a max of -25% (soft level cap) before 650. After 650 it can be reduced to 5%;
  • When killing monsters you always gain the same amount of skill experience;
  • You need to be in a 25 range to gain group experience;
  • While grouped you gain 90% experience with 2 players, 95% with 3, 100% with 4 and 105% with 5 (based on the amount of members in range);
  • When a groupmember receive monster experience, it will check each other groupmember to see if they should receive experience AND quest kill based upon 3 checks:
    • If the lowest level of the 2 is lower than 200: lowest level + lowest level / 2 (minimum 20 and maximum 100) IS still lower than highest level = no experience;
    • Else if the Skill Level of the lowest level player + 100k IS higher than the Skill Level of the highest level player, the grouping range is 100;
    • Else if the lowest level + (((Skill Level of the lowest level player + 100k) / Skill Level of the highest level player) * 100) IS still lower than the Skill Level of the highest level player = no experience;
  • To help new players keep up with old veterans, new characters gain 100% extra skill experience at Skill Level 0 which gradually goes down with your Skill Level with a max of Skill Level 200.000 (=0% extra);

Debuff system

  • There is a new stat called debuff resist and a skill can have a debuff level;
  • The time or if a debuff hits depends on the debuff level and the resist of a target;
  • If the debuff resist is higher or equal to the debuff level, the debuff won't be applied;
  • For each level of difference between resist and level, 25% of the debuff time gets added. For example debuff level 5 vs. resist 6, is 25% debuff duration or 4 vs. 6 is 50% (with a maximum of 100%);
  • There is also a cleanse stat, which works the other way around (for example pass). With cleanse the REMAINING debuff time, which gets reduced based on the buff level + cleanse level vs. the debuff level;
Buffs work the same as the old Redmoon, except 2 new possible restrictions were added (moving and casting skills)

Skills & Targeting options

Attack, hit and defense formula

Step 1: Hit chance
SOURCE ACCURACY = accuracy + (dex OR spr / (dex OR spr + 1000) * 4000)
TARGET EVASION = evasion + (dex OR spr / (dex OR spr + 1000) * 5000)
BASE HIT CHANCE = Skill hit chance + Item hit chance

(Minimum hit chance is basehitchance - 15)


Step 2: Damage PVP or PVM?
If PVP, add PVP multiplier, flat attack etc to the base values;

Step 3: Damage Strength based skill
DAMAGE = Strength * (0.1 (Strength / 750)) + level * (1 (level / 50)) + Dexterity;

STRENGTH MULTIPLIER = (Strength / 2500) - 1;

    DAMAGE += Attack;

Step 3: Damage Dexterity based skill
DAMAGE = Dexterity * (0.1 (Dexterity / 750)) + level * (1 (level / 50)) + Strength;

DEXTERITY MULTIPLIER = (Dexterity / 2500) - 1;

    DAMAGE += Attack;

Step 3: Damage Spirit based skill
DAMAGE = Spirit * (0.1 (Spirit / 1250)) + level * (1 (level / 50)) + (Spirit / 2);

SPIRIT MULTIPLIER = (Spirit / 2500) - 1;

    DAMAGE += Magic Attack;

Step 4: Damage Amplify and Minimum/Maximum Damage
DAMAGE *= Damage %;

if (min/max damage is not 100)
    DAMAGE is randomly multiplied by a number between minimum and maximum damage


Step 5: Defense PVP or PVM?
If PVP, add PVP defense multiplier, flat defense etc to the base values;

Step 6: Defense
Reflect damage is handled at this point

DAMAGE REDUCTION = Damage reduction % * (1 - (Damage reduction % / 250));

DEFENSE TOTAL = ((Defense * Defense effect % - (Source)Penetration %) - (Source)Penetration) * (Defense %);


If (PVP)
    DAMAGE /= 2;

DAMAGE += Hp Current/Max attack + Backstab + Based on missing HP;

Animation- and movementspeed formula

IF MovementSpeed > 60
   MOVEMENTSPEED = 60 + (80 - (80 / Math.Pow(2.5, (100 / 60) * (MovementSpeed - 60) / 100)))
   MOVEMENTSPEED = MovementSpeed
For example from a quickyne with 60 movementspeed you get about 60 + 53 movementspeed, then adding Fresh Breeze with 60 movementspeed you get 60 + 71 movementspeed in total!
What does this actually say? With 60 + 53 movementspeed you will move 113 pixels per second or 226 when running.

IF AnimationSpeed < 50
   ANIMATIONSPEED = 50 + (25 - (25 / Math.Pow(20, (100 / 50) * (AnimationSpeed - 50) * -1 / 100)) * -1)
   ANIMATIONSPEED = AnimationSpeed
For example from a quickyne with -25 animationspeed you get about -18 animationspeed, then adding Nagrepar with -25 animationspeed you get -22 animationspeed in total!
What does this actually say? With 50 - 22 animationspeed each frame will take 28 milliseconds. An animation of 30 frames would than take 840 milliseconds to complete (Not accounting for skill animationspeed % and a static +4 frames each skill has).
