Which is better?

Corsair Forum Talk about Gunslinger, Outlaw and Corsair

I bought a 144Atk, 7+STR, 8+DEX VIP gun
It's potential is 3 line Unique the stats are 30% Boss, 15% PDR, 6% MP.
It has a [C] Neb which is 15% PDR.
It has been scrolled 9 times (2x hammered) and has 2 enhancements.

I want to trade it for a Perfect scrolled Empress gun.
I plan on getting full empress and currently have 3 pieces.
I want to know which is better and if anyone would do the trade.

I personally would keep the VIP gun over getting just a perfectly scrolled empress.. provided that the potentials suck on the gun. The chance of getting decent boss % potentials on the empress are slim unless you're extremely lucky or want to spend at least $150. It took me 332 cubes to get my empress 80% boss and 9% total dmg.

full emp is for the nubs, get top and bottom (homecoming)

also what do you consider "perfectly scrolled" 20% or 50%?
giving the stats on the projected sharktooth would provide more responses

i think he means 50%

FUNNILY NOUGH, My 147 attack VIP gun, 30% boss, 6% something, 4% something, 15% PDR neb. It was EE'd 4 times though. I sold it, and now am in the process of scrolling a perfect (50%) emp gun, holy sheet, dont try this. its terrible. I blew freaking 1.8b on scrolls and 1.2b worth failed, lmfao.[/quote]

I second this, don't EVER try to scroll/cube your own gun... I spend 1.7b and only 4/15 worked...

I want to get a Empress gun because if I get hacked the hacker will actually have to pay NX to transfer it and there is a pretty nice set effect
All I want to know is Which would have better stats (atk)
BTW the only bosses I do are HT (but I just let my brother solo because I'm lazy), Scarlion/Targa (I usually do it on my Mercedes) and CWKPQ I do it on all characters and I don't really attack because I go with high levels.
Call me a noob but I really have no idea what PDR means. Also I have the Leafre set which adds +1 all skills and 15%PDR.

pdr relates to the monsters defense

each monster has a %pdr that reduces your damage by that amount
normal mobs are about 20%, meaning only 80% of your damage is actually seen by monsters
bosses, however, have a way higher %pdr,
zak and normal ht has 40%
czak and cht have 50%
PB and empress have 75%

ya.... pretty intense

the pot is something like ignore % of monsters def, since that is hard to say people just call it pdr
now this effects all monsters, but only a percentage of there percent

this is the formula to convert Pot PDR into Atk % increase:
((1-(mobPDR - (mobPDR * potPDR))/ (1-mobPDR)) - 1 = atk%

so for example, 20% on normal mobs with 30% pdr potential is:
((1-(.2 (.2*.3)) / (1-.2)) - 1 = Atk%
((1-(.2 - (.06) / (.8)) - 1 = Atk%
((1-.14) / (.8)) - 1 = Atk%
((.86) / (.8)) - 1 = Atk%
(1.075) - 1 = Atk%
.075 = Atk%

a 7.5% increase in attack

bosses look like this (with 30% ignore):

Zak/HT = 20% increase in atk (when compared to attacking the SAME monster with the same weapon without any potPDR, applies to all the following)
CZak/CHT = 30% increase in atk (this is the point, 50% mobPDR, where boss% is equal to PDR %)
PB/Emp = 90% increase in atk

with 100% pdr it looks like this:

Normal mobs = 25% increase in attack
Zak/HT = 66% increase in atk
CZak/CHT = 100% increase in atk
PB/Emp = 300% increase in atk (yeah, three hundred percent, mutliply your damage by 4)

PLEASE NOTE!
this is only when facing the same monster without the pot
if you hit 300k on crockies with a move
DO NOT expect 1200k with the same move on empress (with 100% potPDR it should still be the same damage, 300k)
without the pot PDR your damage would look closer to:
240k on crockies and
75k on empress

also, when you get to 100% pdr, you no longer benefit from pdr
at that point switch tactics to boss% (or something else)

some classes come with pdr, and the pirate character card set will give you some

another note!
while fighting regular zak or HT boss% is better, but pdr applies to all monsters, including normal mobs
