Glimmersteel not 10% faster

Recommended Posts

Patchnotes: Glimmersteel and Seryll armours now have a 10% movement speed bonus.

 

Bug: Glimmersteel/Seryll does not provide a 10% movement speed bonus

 

naked on cobble above ground: 17.26 km/h, speedmod 1.0, penalty: 0.0
iron chain on cobble above ground: 13.54 km/h, speedmod .7844, penalty .2156
glimmer chain on cobble above ground: 13.93 km/h, speedmod .8070, penalty .1930

 

Glimmer chain is not 10% faster.  Rather the penalty is reduced by 10% of its current value. This does not amount to a 10% movement speed bonus.
The current way this is currently implemented is:
armorPenalty = armorBasePenalty * .9

 

Solution: Actual 10% faster glimmer chain: 14.89, speedmod .8627, penalty .1373

 

For glimmer to actually provide a 10% increase in movement speed, the movement speed penalty modifier should be calculated as:
armorPenalty = 1 - (1 - armorBasePenalty)*1.1


I assume this issue to be true for adamantine armor as well, in which case you would change the 1.1 in the solution to 1.05

It was meant to be a 10% modifier on the penalty, not an overall 10% bonus - patch notes were wrong on that.

 

Will correct it to be 10% instead of *0.9 though.

So does this mean glimmer armors will be made to have 10% more actual speed than their regular material counterparts?

No, 10% less on the speed penalty compared to normal material.

But that's whats currently happening by scaling the penalty by a factor of 0.9

Then glimmer chain is only about 2.8% faster than normal

A lot of these metal type bonuses and penalties are starting to sound really inconsequential. It's hard to see the point of a modifier that's essentially meaningless in practice.

it would be better to correct it as the bonus is a 10% reduction to the normal speed penalty, which would now be a 0.9 instead.  something similar.
