0.024 New Damage : Data Points

To try out the new damage equation, I loaded up my Chaos Mage save file.

Enemy Level 25
Mage Level 25
Creature Level 27 (I am a bit over-leveled with save since I have been exploring a bit more than needed)

My highest attack creature is: 445 Attack (I think this is fairly high for this point in the game. This includes the Sailor’s Warning Trait)

My second creature is: 271 Attack

Enemy1 Defense: 41
Enemy1 Health: 203
Damage from my 445 Attack : 99 (no class bonus, this is Chaos vs Nature)
Damage from my 271 Attack : 87 (no class bonus)

Enemy2 Defense: 188
Enemy2 Health: 301
Damage from my 445 Attack : 122 (critical strike, no class bonus)
Damage from my 271 Attack : 107 (no class bonus)

Enemy3 Defense: 155
Enemy3 Health: 253
Damage from my 445 Attack : 109 (critical strike, no class bonus)
Damage from my 271 Attack : 95 (critical strike, no class bonus)

From a player perspective, the damage numbers from my two creatures feel a bit too close together considering how 445 vs 271 is a VERY significant difference in attack.

Another oddity is Barrier.
If an enemy (or you) Barrier a creature for a high amount, they actually take MORE damage - thus defeating the entire point of the Barrier, no?
The damage will then decrease once the Barrier goes away.
