    GRUDGE MATCH
    Pulsar 8 VS Mark.5b

    [/TABLE]




    *The decay test was done with Settler Armor on Calypso, at the oil rig VS Atrox Prowler. Both were hits in the Thigh Guard, for the same value .01138 ped decay on the armor, plus the decay listed for the Armor Plate.

    Draw your own conclusions... With the difference in Durability, and the drop in protection as UL plates decay... I would say Pulsar 8 wins.

    Good stuff Jarrdhead. Thanks for the stats. Love the Pulsar 8 myself.

    Chuck those decay figures seem a bit screwy to me. Settler will offer 2.5 points protection from an atrox prowler for 0.139071858 pec.
    Both the plates will offer max protection against prowlers cos they do minimum 92 damage. P8 decay should be 2.640041315 pec. 5B decay should be 2.514385809 pec. Not really understanding how your results are achievable. My calculations are taken from a spreadsheet I have set up using the info at http://www.entropedia.info/Page.aspx?page=Armor+Decay

    But as they are offering different protection the decay comparison is hard to evaluate anyway. Another way of looking at it would be to compare decay for the same amount of protection. Max protection for 5b is 29 pts at a cost of 2.514385809 pec. The same amount of protection on P8 costs 1.995007908 pec before MU. If we factor in your estimated MU of 108.89% then that ends up costing 2.172364111 pec

    I had added the last underlined part in an edit....

    I had equiped the armor, took 1 hit from the Atrox with min health, so a second hit would not be possible. I had completed the fruit test with sweat. Both shots on the same piece of armor had the same decay value of .01138 ped <measured with sweat>. Each of the plate decays was posted <measured with sweat>.

    I guess I could have done the test with an armor with no Cut, Imp, Stab protection... Since the hit was on the same piece of armor type, and had the same value of decay, it was a good control for the experiment. The difference in the decay for the Armor Plates was the Variable I was looking for.

    KikkiJikki, a little offtopic quesion:
    How can you measure the value of decay exceeding 5 decimal places? As far as I know, all the numbers less than 0.00001 PED will be rounded in the game (all values of items, transfers from Shop, Shopkeeper measuring or fruit test cannot give a more precision)

    Hi Gewitter, that's the calculated value from the equations in the Entropedia link I provided. I am confident that those functions are correct based on my own tests but I expect that actual decay is rounded up or down to less significant digits.

    Ahh, understood, thank you for explanation! But I do not trust in the formulas from Entropedia, too many data from Entropedia is wrong :(

    The armour decay formulae are entirely consistent with my results in doing damage and decay tests for various mobs. So I think those ones are reliable.

    and on topic: Pulsar 8 are great! Buy them folks.
