Default Throwing boulder dmg compared to bow dmg

I am asking about this because most Windstriker rangers aren't coming close this kind of damage, in fact I think if you parsed boulder damage it would be higher than melee (maybe not)

Just an example of how brutal boulders hit on this box - I have been hit by a 577 dmg deadly strike. I am just curious I guess if the formula is working as intended - as I imagine it would be irrelevant on blue and go undiscovered all this time.

And in case people weren't aware but on Red99 bow/throwing dmg is restricted by almost nothing, and should be more like the ranger's damage, it's consistent almost unavoidable dmg - no reason boulders should be hitting 577 crit/270+ non crit IMO.

Yeah that is not classic. Server needs to be taken down immediately to fix.

It's possible that archery damage is reduced to 80% (or even lower) in PvP on this server.

I don't currently have the means to confirm this ingame myself, but when looking at the stock eqemu source I noticed the following in attack.cpp:
Code:
if(attack_skill == SkillArchery)
  PvPMitigation = 80;
It seems archery damage was initially reduced to 66% dmg in PvP during the LoY expansion, then increased to 80% during GoD.

At any rate, it should be full dmg during p99's era.

Bows need all the help they can get right now. Then in Luclin we can all freak out about how OP they are.
