Before I begin, I would like to thank Cherry, who wrote the original elitist tech guide. His numbers were wrong, but he inspired me to write this guide for acrotechers. He no longer plays PSU, but is still well known as one of the best techers in the game. Also note that this guide is in the very early stages (!!!) and I will be updating this guide in the future.
The formula used to calculate TPbar as follows:
Buff percentages are as follows:
Level 1: 10%
Level 2: 15%
Level 3: 19%
Level 4: 23%
Level 5: 27%
Note: Buffs only affect your character's base stats.
Once you have TPbar, you can easily calculate DPS using the following equation:
The following table explains the number of times one could cast each spell in a minute as an acrotecher using S ranked weapons and level 21+ spells along with either a har/quick or a har/smart:
CPM: Tech Mag (Wand)
Foie : 57 (49)
Rafoie 53 (46)
Damufoie: 6.75 (6.5)
Gifoie: 50 (45)
Barta: 57 (49)
Rabarta: 53 (46)
Note: this table assumes you are a LV170 Acrotecher 20 attacking an opposite element enemy with level 30 spells and LV5 buffs. The enemy in this example has an average of 250 MST, which is typical for enemies around level 100. The Tech Mag in the example is a 10 grinded Pushan, and the wand is a 10 grinded granahodora.
DPS: Tech Mag (Wand)
Foie: 2704 (2440) DPS single target only.
Rafoie: 1582 (1442) DPS per target (max 3).
Damufoie: 1233 (1246) DPS per target (lots).
Gifoie: 1317 (1244) DPS per target (max 6).
Barta: 1401 (1265) DPS per target (lots).
Rabarta: 1489 (1357) DPS per target (max 3).
The 10 grinded granahadora gets stomped by the 10 grinded Pushan in terms of DPS for every spell except for spells where one has to hold the button down.
More coming soon! What I plan to do next:
Finish the spell table.
Begin calculating gun damage. You would be very surprised how well mechguns do for female newman acrotechers (they shoot 240x a minute-- did you know?).
