# Talk:Bar Elemental

From a quick test, Elemental staves DO NOT affect Bar Spell stats, not to be confused with the +10 to each stat seen on the actual stave itself. Enhancing Magic Skill+ equip has a minimal effect on increasing elemental resistance. Enhancing Torque (+7 Skill) added 1 point to bar spells. Zaliek 08:15, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Duration equation seems a tiny bit off. Barfira cast with 256 skill granted a duration of 214 seconds instead of the 210 the equation would predict. (150 + .8(256-180) = 210.8), not what was observed but very close.--Hecatonchires 09:31, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

## Formula

That formula was off by 10 on my equations. The formula put out an increase of 87 at 287 Enhancing Magic while in-game I get 97. Shentok 17:00, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Considering 87 and 97, it sounds like there might be some kind of human error involved. Usually if a calculation is wrong but is close by some obvious number, it might be worth rechecking. Might be some contribution (such as merits) that you missed? Dawnfairy 00:24, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Scholar has no bar-elemental merits. --Shentok 03:00, September 29, 2009 (UTC)
Formula is off by 10. Some testing on my own WHM revealed a formula that follows 50+0.2(Skill). Below are supporting numbers, all without the use of Cleric's Legs.
Enhancing 276 = 105 bar --> 50 + 0.2(276) = 50 + 55.2 ~= 105
Enhancing 256 = 101 bar --> 50 + 0.2(256) = 50 + 51.2 ~= 101
Enhancing 250 = 100 bar --> 50 + 0.2(250) = 50 + 50 = 100
Enhancing 230 = 96 bar --> 50 + 0.2(230) = 50 + 46 = 96

• 40+(287x0.2)=97 rounded. Also, WHM merits add directly to the barspell like relic legs. A lot of human error above, check your merits and math like Dawnfairy suggested. --Reiku 08:16, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
