Special Attack Bonus Damage[edit source]
How much bones do the specials really give? When the godswords were first added back in rs2 they all gave a 10% bonus damage, which stacked with the special bonus on AGS and BGS. Is this also true for the oldschool version?
The damage bonuses were as follows, contrary to the advertised bonuses:
AGS - 37.5%; BGS - 21%; SGS - 10%; ZGS - 10%
This can be hard to know, without Jmod confirmation. We'll have to collect a large data set of max hits. I have the forumla that calculates it, so from that I can derive the special attack bonus damage.
If you'd like to submit max hits for data, please include your Strength bonus (from equipment), combat style (accurate/agressive/controlled/defensive), strength level upon hit (including strength boost from potions or the like), any prayers you may be using, and which Godsword you landed your max special with.
If you are using a slayer helm on task, a salve amulet (e) vs undead, or some other damage boost I've forgotten, please mention that as well.
Please exclude max hits with Castle Wars Bracelets, because I'm not sure how that's calculated in at the moment.
