Nice. Let me recalculate the dps for a C/M. Again within 20 rounds, assuming 20 dmg per hit (after resistance)
Single weapon style: 40 attacks, 4 crits, 2 misses, 34 normal hits
so 169*4 (martyr) + 40*4 (crit) + 20 * 34 (normal hit) = 1516 damage (after resistance).
2 weapon style martyr main hand: 40 attacks, 2 crits, 2 misses, 36 hits
so 169*2 + 40*2 + 20*36 = 1138 damage.
Offhand: 20 attacks, 20 hits (crits compensate misses) = 400 damage.
So dual wield will give 1138+400 = 1538 dmg, an extra 1538-1516 = 22 damage over single style martyr.
okay very close, but I think single style martyr has an advantage here because it should be able to give much higher burst damage if lucky.
Compared to the 1200 dmg output of a generic cleric with 3 apr, yes martyr is great.
and now I wonder why my C/M struggled that much... probably I lost more rounds of champion's strength buff than I thought.@XDarkStrikerX
ah yeah that -11 AC! So Cavaliers' full potential should be around 1000 dmg per turn. Then my question becomes, is a C/M wielding martyr the best bel killer??? what?
, but of course we need the quicksave and load exploit for a C/M and perfect execution... Cavaliers can just do it fair and square in relax mode.
Edit: forgot the time unit, C/M does 1500 dmg in 2 turns, Cavalier does 1000 dmg in 1 turn, Cavalier deals much better damage.@Harpagornis
Thanks for starting this thread so we have a place to discuss and learn how to beat this LOB SCS adventure. I wish I could have joined you guys from the beginning, I found this post a little bit late. I have a character who beat the challenge, Lady Rose The Cleric/Mage. Her whole story are on page 218 of this thread.
