First off, very big thanks to Kaelien for helping me with this testing, she did a little over half of these numbers with her toon while I recorded the results. Rest were done myself, and with a few contributions from Revelator. Also thanks to Faolrin on RK-2 for providing some crat AMS buffs.

With that said, I have fairly complete results for most of the domain between 1000-2100 AMS for people to browse... The "general rule" is that Advents were at 1/3rd multiplier, which isn't too far from the truth. However, it seems that it is really made up of 3 linear progressions, all with slightly different start and end values.

Advents hover from 40% at the start, to around 30% at the end. In this thread is the raw data, as well as a graph for those a bit more math-oriented...

To explain the graph:

The y-axis (bottom to top) is the "loss"--e.g. how many points of AMS are subtracted from your starting value.

The x-axis (left to right) is the AMS, with the starting 1000 subtracted as it doesn't matter. (100 = 1100, etc..)

Visually, the higher on the y-axis, the more loss..as the scale on both axis' is the same, 100% loss is represented wherever the equal values intersect. (Such as the top or bottom corners, or any matching gridlines, 800/800, etc)

You will notice there are two charts.. one is the "raw" chart, that plots every testing point I have gathered data for and draws a smoothed line between each point.

The chart on the right is the same data, only broken up into three different sections which seem to represent the areas which have their own multiplier. As you can see, the multiplier seems to change around 1450, and also around 1975. These sections are broken up in the left-hand chart, with a formula for the plotted line above (matching color) and the coefficient of determination (R-squared) of that trendline--the closer this value is to 1, the more accurate it is at pridicting the values on the trendline.

The raw test values are as follows:

This is still a work in progress, but I am fairly certain given the wide range of tests so far that the numbers presented give a pretty good overall picture of the "profession multipliers" for Advents.Code:Old AMS New AMS Percent1051 1020 40.09% 1101 1040 40.04% 1125 1048 38.76% 1181 1075 41.27% 1409 1166 40.59% 1455 1177 38.97% 1465 1179 38.57% 1475 1182 38.32% 1485 1185 38.08% 1509 1189 37.20% 1549 1199 36.31% 1579 1206 35.58% 1600 1212 35.33% 1610 1213 34.97% 1673 1223 33.18% 1738 1234 31.71% 1754 1237 31.39% 1810 1245 30.29% 1833 1249 29.93% 1853 1253 29.62% 1918 1263 28.61% 1921 1263 28.57% 1946 1267 28.19% 1961 1272 28.30% 1976 1280 28.69% 1996 1290 29.09% 2021 1301 29.51% 2066 1323 30.27% 2131 1354 31.28% 2141 1359 31.47% 2181 1368 31.16%

I'm currently working on gathering data for the other professions as well, but Advents are probably the furthest along here. My Solider and Agent charts are nearly complete, and will be released soon.

Hopefully this will prove to be useful data for the time being, and give a a better idea of what your "true" AMS is at any given time.

I will be trying to integrate this into my damage simulator as soon as possible, but I would like to get a few more profession figures done before I do so.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
